Shame Shame Aunty

I heard pattu singing a tune few days back. It didn't sound like any of the regular tunes that we are familiar with, so I asked her.
Pattu: That song that aunty on TV sings amma
Amma: Which one? Which aunty sings?
Pattu: That shame shame aunty who wears only a blouse and sings
Amma: *@#**!!@%

Inside Amma's head:
Is it ok for girls her age to say this? Notice this?
Ban completely? Or just play casually matter of fact and don't make too much hoo haa about it....and quietly make sure she doesn't get a chance to watch too much shame shame
What did she actually understand and mean by shame shame?
