Portrayal of Women in Hip Hop videos

leave a comment »

It has been an issue for a very long time of how many women are portrayed in hip hop videos. Many people say that they are being exploited, forced to reveal parts of their body into just to make a music video look ” hot and sexy”. Some people argue that women should not be shown in these videos in the attire that they usually wear which consists of bathing suits. I came across a video on youtube in which Irv Gotti, a record executive, defends the way in which he shows women in his videos. He states that it is all simply for entertainment and the girls choose to come out in these videos. A model is also interviewed and she says the same, some girls go to the extreme because¬† of the attention and competition, while other girls don’t it is simply up to the model who comes out in the video.I attached the link to the video in which this topic was discussed.
