    Sex and death are naturally the two topics of most interest to humans, maybe we should start developing music videos of people getting shot or dancing corpses.
    It has been done Micheal Jackson- Thriller.

    I don't agree with the spoiler at all, but the first sentence is true.

    Almost all R&B, rap, hip-hop videos in general include a bunch of 80% naked women throwing themselves on top of men. They're all the same, and it's just disgusting.
    woo for generalising.

    I was at work the other day and they had a music channel on that showed a Nelly video (the sound was off so I have no idea which song it was), and literally every woman in the video was wearing a bikini or very little else. I thought it was so degrading with these men just swaggering around, leering at the women - it was disgusting. The video was about baseball as well, so I don't see how the bikinis were even necessary! I hate those sorts of videos, they make me feel sick.

    Like the industry itself, it's become beyond f*ed up. There's way too much of it around. In the past, during the 1990's, which wasn't that long ago, it was mainly just rappers who hired women to "dance" around in nothing but hotpants and a friggin bra. Nobody gave a crap.

    Now, it's become the norm to be displayed in nearly all pop music videos, often by the solo artist herself, i.e Britney Spears, J.Lo and so on, even in Holly Valance's brief musical career as someone else just brought up.

    I am trying to avoid watching them now. I worry that subconsiously I'll be comparing myself to these women and that they are damaging my fragile little self esteem.

    Same reason I avoid magazines like Heat, Closer etc. with all their "Celeb beach bodies!!" "Kerry gains 10 pounds!" stuff. It's not good for us girls. Less obsession with women's bodies, please
    haha you sound well butters. i love tits.

    I don't mind half naked women in music videos at all, it's fine! But what is not fine is when EVERY SINGLE music video that comes on contains half naked women. People should come up with other ideas too. It's variety I like, not naked women!!*

    *well maybe a little bit :ninja:

    I always think back when I used to watch the BOX and stuff when I was around nine/ten. Back then it was Steps/Spice Girls etc, all quite tame. Now when I see stuff like the remix of Tiny Dancer where girls are basically in bondage gear, kissing eachother, parading around for the men, I feel ashamed that a kid could watch that and think it's normal, that's it's a normal thing to dress and behave like that. That a woman is only for a man to watch as she performs for him. It's pathetic, it might be okay after watershed if it were atall equal, but it's not, it's always women down to their underwear.

    It's just boring to be honest, get a new idea already "directors" - not very creative when you're all singing from the same hymn sheet, is it?

    It's like when some RnB artist made a video where there were 3 strips on screen with 3 different things in them: 2 thin ones top and bottom and the main one the middle and then a whole bunch of others just straight copied the format.
