Girls have no identity's in music videos, they are just in the video to make the song better. In a song by 2 Chainz ft Kanye West called Birthday song, the girls are all shaking there bottoms for the men because its there birthday. The song is terrible but the girls made it better this is why 38 million people like this song. In a part of the song the girls look like robots doing the exact same thing which is shaking there bottom and men dancing around them. In the video pour it up by Rihanna the girls are dancing around poles like strippers, and shaking there ass. Whilst Rihanna is twerking and liking a lolly pop. This will come across as very sexual for some people, this is why people dislike the video. She also sings about srtip club money and is through it up in the air like she is a stripper

The dance moves the girls do provide pleasure for young men. That could tell the men that they are just sexual objects and nothing more than that. The song is also saying that for your birthday you should get a big booty hoe. But most people spend time with there family, the girls are doing this for money but men get the wrong idea. Then they think nothing of them and treat them like they want sex. In the video pour it up the girls dancing around poles will give pleasure to young men and will still treat them like nothing.

Video girls are on every video and it isn't rare not to see them. Some times on television and films. This will not stop men from thinking girls are selling sex in these videos, and are being brain washed into a bad song. All of these statements are true and they are shown in some of there videos. So maybe girls are just sex objects, well that's what other men think. But these girls are not afraid to show there body so it isn't the audiences fault about what they think of these girls. It's how the girls represent them self to the men.




What you have here is very good and you have responded well to the question, even posing your own questions. You have used examples solidly. 

T: Try to use more examples and key terminology (see VCOP Blog). Pick out all of the technical aspects (Mise-en-scene, editing, lyrics etc) and how they help you come to your conclusions.
