The problem is what is followed by "tweens" here are followed by "teens" in the old country. As a father of a wteen I know. Have you seen the audience cross-section for a Miley or a Jonas br concert. No one above 12 other than parents.

This is going way off-topic, but when I went to BD last year (after a long long time), I was shocked by how obsessed my 4-5 year old nieces and nephews were with Hannah Montana, Jonas brothers, etc... Bowie's "I'm Afraid of Americans" kept playing in my head...
