In many rap videos women have no identity except as sexual playthings and "eye candy"

In the Phrase
In many rap videos women have no identity except as sexual playthings and "eye candy
it represents a typical women in most music videos to the present day.
A lot the time the women in these videos are treated as sex slaves by the artist, In videos like Candy shop you see a number of women dressed in Thongs and Bra's trying to get with the artist in a provocative manor. The women in videos are usually thrown out the way for the main girl to be shown, this also places the other women as unwanted and basically have no meaning or identity to the video, rendering them use less,thus leaving them only as eye candy.
The main girl will then be shown in the video with the artist the majority of the time. This would include explicit scenes showing the girl dancing on the artist or touching him in a sexual way. 

In these videos Men are the dominating gender showing the women weak and worthless.
Overall I believe that the way women are treated in these videos is vulgar and unpleasant to both them and the viewer.

Sorry if the Quantity of this isn't the most but i didn't see there would be anything left to right.




You have a number of good points here and have chosen your examples well, but you don't really have any specific examples to back up your points made.

T: Find specific examples and apply them to your chosen videos to help you fully explain your points.

The music video i chose was Justin Bieber Boyfriend.

After answering the questions i would have presented my answers by reading the key points of the different answers.
After i would give a overall,

In this music video Justin is showed as a huge attraction to women, as a role model to people and a massive icon. At the start of the video there are 2 girls in a car watching a Justin Bieber video. Over the entire video you see, fast expensive cars,good looking women and men sexually attracted to the women. In a comparison to other videos, this one shows a lot more respect towards women, the men are not all over the women but are attracted, the women are in decent clothes not just a bikini and knickers. In this video the women look a little more classy other than ones in the more recent music, as example would be Blurred Lines.

50 Cent Candy Shop

The song candy shop is highly provocative, it has sexual references in the song as well. Some of the references are lick on my Lollipop, and pointing towards his private area.  Also " If you show me you can work baby, you can get on top."

Another aspect of this video is the way women are portrayed, in nearly all the scenes of the music video women have tight tops on and some tight latex to make parts of there body be the focus. This music video also implies that women are highly seductive and very sexually active. It means that all women should behave and perform in a sexually provocative manor that in public would be unacceptable.

Again in the video shows the average male who once again in rapping videos have The big coats and the Bling Bling such as chains around their necks on show. furthermore there are the expensive sports cars on show, this also implies that men should be rich and be able to purchase the expensive gold chains and Fast sports cars.

Most men and women are not how music videos show them to be, and the majority of the population would disagree with the way that the women are highly provocative and sexually infused in the way they look as tho they are trying to seduce the male members of the video.
