New York: Australian singer/actress Helen Reddy has revealed how a recent shopping trip for bras left her seething, and it was supposedly all because of the Queen of Pop, Madonna.

Reddy, 68, was speaking in an interview on BlogTalkRadio from her home in Sydney, when she recalled the shopping incident.

“I was in London earlier this year, and I had to get some new bras -- because [mine] were falling off me,” the New York Post quoted her as telling host Janet Powers.

“I go into the women’s lingerie department, and they’ve got pasties -- you know, like strippers wear.

“They’ve got all these little fancy things, which all have wires -- which I believe cause breast cancer -- but nothing that’s for women who are older, or who are heavier, or who would like to dress like a lady.

“So I finally said to the salesgirl, ‘Do you have any underwear that isn’t slutty?’ -- and she pointed me to the sports department!

“When I was a girl, we used to complain we were divided into two groups: We were either virgins or we were whores.

“And then along came Madonna -- and now we’re all whores.

“It is horrifying to me to see these little girls, you know, dressed as sexpots, trying to imitate the latest video they’ve seen,” she added.
