    DJ Sara Cox Says Pitbull Makes Her "Soul Weep" Due To The Way He Sings About Women

    The rapper has received criticism in the past for some of his lyrics.

    BBC Radio 2 DJ Sara Cox has hit out at U.S. rapper Pitbull, claiming the way he sings about women “makes my soul weep”.

    Pitbull has received criticism in the past over the way women are depicted in his songs and music videos.

    Cox, who presented Radio 1’s flagship Breakfast Show from 2000 to 2003, recently joined Radio 2 and was asked in a interview by Radio Times which station she preferred.

    I love the music at both but there will always be the odd song that isn't for me.Someone like Pitbull on Radio 1 makes my soul weep with the way he sings about women.I just couldn't bear playing that.

    At present, Pitbull is not on Radio 1’s playlist.

    Cox also revealed she can no longer watch Channel 4’s reality dining show Come Dine With Me with her daughter as it has become a bit too racy.

    “I used to watch Come Dine With Me with my daughter Lola, who’s nine,” she said.

    "But I can't any more because they've always got ­strippers on or someone with their cleavage out.

    "It's a shame, because it used to have a real ­innocence to it."

    The interview can be read on page 162 of the current issue of Radio Times.
