- How are women portrayed in music videos?
- Sex in pop music: what do other female pop stars think?
- Are music videos too sexual or do they represent power in women?
And I’ll leave you with this, the opening statement from the wikipedia entry:
Sexuality in music videos has become more widespread since the 1980s. Because of its commercial function, music videos must attract the audience’s attention and convey a message quickly. The sexual attraction provides a means of both drawing attention and conveying a message quickly.
(PS: I may be pointing out the obvious, but music videos as we understand them did not exist before the 1980s… but that should not detract from the point it is making)
