It’s time for a change with how the music industry markets female act’s don’t you think?

May 30, 2012 § Leave a comment

It’s my opinion that the annoying, repetitive and albeit degrading music that is coming from today’s female acts is, In part, the product of the industries over-sexualization of all the females that create grace the billboard music charts. I mean, look at Lady Gaga or more specifically entertainer Nicki Minaj.

She’s as well known for her skintight, eye-catching ensembles as she is for her disorienting and raunchy lyrics that either degrade women or make her seem a little unstable (if nothing else). I’m not saying she isn’t a good entertainer, she definitely leaves you entertained. I’m not even saying that she is a bad person, I can’t make that call; for I have never met her. What I am saying is that she emulates the over sexualized and male focused music industry. Personally, she’s not the type of women I would want my nieces and nephews to look at when watching TV and believe that is the normal attitude to address themselves/women with. However, in my opinion there are artists out there who could help change how the industry markets its female acts. The change we need is where it is not the artist’s sexuality that sells, but their music that matters and gives them that spot in the top songs on the billboard chart.

If you needed any proof of her degrading and rediculous lyrics just listen to this song and hear it first hand.
