HILARY DUFF has hit out at fellow young pop stars who behave in a raunchy fashion in a desperate bid to ditch their nubile images.
The principled singer has slammed the actions of former teen stars, including JESSICA SIMPSON and BRITNEY SPEARS, as immature, and warns they will regret their antics in years to come.
Duff, 17, muses, “It’s so funny, because with Jessica Simpson… a lot of people talked bad about Britney Spears and gave her so much flak, and I don’t see any difference.
“I think if you feel comfortable with what you’re doing, more power to you, that’s what you should be doing.
“But I definitely do not think taking your clothes off or going out and getting wasted every night is a sign of maturity.
“I do not want to look back years from now and go, ‘Ugh, that’s so embarrassing.”
