Why is Music and Lyrics rated PG-13? Music and Lyrics is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for some sexual content.

Although language concerns include only infrequent terms of deity and a couple of moderate vulgarities, there is plenty of scanty dance attire and low cut tops. During concerts, performers use erotic dance moves, pelvic thrusts and butt shaking to entertain their audiences. Later, a girl comments on the orgasm-simulating actions of the artist. At a house party, mimes wear nearly transparent body suits with very little underneath. After some passionate kissing, a couple is shown in bed together the following morning. A confrontation in a restaurant leads to some shoving and a fistfight between two men.
