The rising emergence of sexy women in music video
This documentary shown on BBC Three iplayer @BBCiPlayer showcases the emergence of a trend of getting as much female flesh to the air in todays pop and music videos. Before this was just in Hip Hop [Nelly Videos NELLY's OFFICIAL TWITTER] and dance; remember that drill and other power tools SATISFACTION ?
Well today we have the likes of Katy Perry [follow on twitter] and its a bit cleaner somehow, but then tomorrow ?
We may be at the level whereby tv is degrading so much that Music TV is in fact more entertaining and short, and we seem to be demanding it.
These videos may not show us the whole story and this documentary tries to get into the real girls at work and the aspirational girls who are slightly delusional that they will become stars, or perhaps maybe they will.
Regaton videos and Latin America have certainly helped bring about this trend in music video (check out Calle 13 Rene Perez Joglar) and the nature of media no longer being 4 channel tv is that these videos are not being seen by your parents but they are BIG business. Certainly for me in a non sexual way Axwell's Feel the Vibe is my favourite all time Music Video go and see why.
