Pop Music Turned Into Pop Porno

Rihanna

The video for Rihanna's latest single, Bitch Better Have My Money", marks either a new low in popular culture, or an inventive take on feminine power.
"Turn up to Rihanna while the whole club fuckin' wasted Every time I drive by, I'm the only thing you're playin'"
Critics have been divided by the seven-minute video, often abbreviated to BBHMM, which features Rihanna's character seeking revenge on a rich man who owes her a debt.
She gets even by kidnapping, stripping, torturing and killing the man's wife, played by Canadian supermodel Rachel Roberts.
While much of the violence is implied and unseen, the wife is depicted topless, strung up in a warehouse, being forced to take drugs and eventually being drowned. It's a graphic revenge fantasy, but one shot in the glamorous style of a fashion shoot.
Sarah Vine in the Daily Mail called the video "repulsive" and an "endless stream of filthy, violent and downright misogynistic images". She adds that the song, which "glorifies murder, torture, drug-taking, guns and racial stereotyping", should "turn all mother's stomachs".
In The Observer, Barbara Ellen has both artistic and moral objections to the song. She says that Rihanna has produced better songs than "this (sub-Sia ear-dung)", and the video "comes across as a painfully obvious self-indulgent attempt to revive industry interest in her God-awful acting". Ellen's main objection to the video is the "pure misogyny".
But Rachel Roberts defends the video in which she appears, telling The Guardian she was aware that the violence and nudity would prove controversial. "Obviously, it's risque," she says, "but there are a lot of films, say Tarantino's, that are far more graphic and violent."
She also argues that the song is empowering, saying: "Rihanna is portraying a strong woman, who is fighting back, even if her methods are obviously highly questionable."
Rebecca Carroll, also in The Guardian, agrees. She argues that the backlash has come because the black woman is in control. To be sure, the video is "vividly violent", says Carroll, it's "an unabashed revenge fantasy". But she also argues that the violence is equivalent to a Tarantino film.
But Tarantino, is a white, male director, and Rihanna is "masterly ambitious black woman with a fear of nothing and no one". Carroll notes that Rihanna has the agency to create her music and direct her career on her own, and that's what should matter.
In the Daily Telegraph, Alex Proud is unconvinced, calling the video "puerile, sexist, race-bait nonsense". Actually, he says, it's not that shocking because it's "courting controversy by numbers", but it is a sign of a more worrying trend.
He goes on to say that the video is a "seven-minute-long softcore snuff film" and evidence of how "the porniness of videos has ratcheted up over the years". Yes, people can call it feminist if it makes them feel better, he says, but the main point is that "kids don't need any more porn".
Rihanna video: torture porn provokes pop debate Jul 13, 2015

Anaconda” è il nome del brano che Nicki Minaj ha scelto per il singolo che anticipa l’uscita del suo nuovo album, “The Pink Print”, e per la cover ha puntato tutto per il solo lato più esplosivo, il sedere. 

Se il nome può essere un riferimento al celebre serpentone, l’immagine ha creato scompiglio sul web. Per chi segue la star sui social sa che non è la prima volta che il suo sedere viene utilizzato per comunicare con i fan, ma questa immagine abbinata al nome del rettile ha dato vita a una serie di post ironici. 

La rapper 31enne, ha ottenuto l’effetto contrario a quello voluto: invece di creare l’effetto teeser sul suo nuovo album il suo lato B è diventato il solo centro dell’attenzione dei fan. La cantante però si è indispettita per il feedback negativo e ha scatenato una vera e propria battaglia, sostenendo che le accuse nei suoi confronti fossero in verità razziste.

Nicki Minaj wins Best Hip Hop (porn) video


Dopo che è stata rivelata la statua di cera della rapper, a quattro zampe, in una posa direttamente tratta dal video Anaconda, in pochissimo tempo, i visitatori si sono fatti prendere la mano e hanno iniziato non solo a farsi scattare la foto accanto ma ad abbracciarla platealmente e fingere pose sensuali. Il tutto, ovviamente, caricato online, sui social network.
Proprio questi comportamenti inopportuni hanno costretto a far diramare un comunicato stampa secondo il quale i dipendenti seguiranno da vicino la statua, vigileranno, proprio per via delle immagini dei visitatori in pose erotiche apparse su Twitter e Instagram. 
Il museo delle cere di Madame Tussaud dice di essere venuto a conoscenza di almeno un'immagine in linea, martedì scorso. Per questo motivo, l'area intorno a Nicki subirà alcune modifiche e la sicurezza aumenterà per impedire certe "degenerazioni".

The article “Pop Stars To Porn Stars: The Toxic Popcorn Female Artists Serve Today!” explored the sexualization of music and the affect female artists have on both our culture and society. My friend, Katherine, decided she’d add a little female perspective to the blog with her new segment, “The Sitch”.  
Check out what Katherine had to say about the topic below! What’s the sitch?:
Miley Cyrus has come to an identity crisis! The female no longer has morals and unfortunately has no clue whom she wants to be. One day she’s a Disney channel star who states she’ll never do drugs, the next day she’s shaking what she thinks is an ass, raping about getting high off some “purp”. I mean if she started off as this kind of an artist, No one would question her. However, she didn’t -she started off as a role model to young girls who still look up to her. Get it together Molly! As far as Rihanna, she’s the “good girl, gone bad”. What she’s doing doesn’t come as much of a surprise. She once stated being a role model isn’t what she signed up for so people need to go somewhere with that! Although I think it was a definite force to be practically naked at the FCDA Awards, leaving no room for imagination on the LUI magazine cover, Rihanna has always been over the top and regardless fans will love her for it. However, I do predict she will be “washed up” sooner than you expect! Moving on . . . Beyoncé has a way better way of being sexy. Most underage kids have no idea who Monica Lewinski is and what that means, so it’s more acceptable plus she has never carried herself in an untasteful manner. Its music she’s suppose to cross the line sometimes so Yonce can ride out in my book. Marylin Monroe once said, “Well behaved woman rarely make history”; a statement perfectly exemplified by these 3 women. [K.B*]

“Pop Stars To Porn Stars” [What’s The Sitch?] JUNE 9, 2014 BY BENNETT KOFFA

Jennifer Lopez is the latest singer to attract criticism for performing a strictly adults only routine on a family television show. Oh dear, yawn, ’fraid so, here we go again.
Rihanna, Madonna, sundry rappers galore? You all know the routine. Stick your hand down your pants, thrust your hips suggestively, pretend you are taking part in an invisible orgy
Make that face that indicates private reverie — or someone standing on your big toe. Never mind that children are watching. Just you go straight ahead!
After all, it is what routinely passes for a dance routine these days. And it is becoming so depressingly predictable.
Yet on Britain’s Got Talent this week, J-Lo went one better. The American entertainer clambered aboard a pair of pervy thigh-high boots, wore a bondage leather swimsuit and a peculiar furry bolero to sing her latest song.
In this porno Big Bird costume she wasted no time in going over the top, under the limbo bar of decorum and straight into the arms of controversy. 
Knees akimbo, hand loitering in the groin region she sang lyrics including something about ‘give you a hard night, so tight, ready to blow’. (That’s right children, it was all about giving Mummy a lovely hairstyle with nice curlers and then using a hairdryer).
Miss Lopez also slid towards the camera with her knees apart and thrust her crotch at the blameless audience. Then, viewed from an overhead camera, she opened and closed her legs in a sequence that would have Busby Berkeley turning in his grave.

JAN MOIR: Yuk! Save the stripper routines for Vegas, not family TV 30 May 2013

Ariana Grande wows Gay Pride Dance on the Pier in PVC


My daughter comes downstairs ready to go out for a family dinner. She is wearing a fluorescent-pink crop top and has her hair scraped to the top of her head in a gravity defying ponytail.

I then utter the words I swore to my 17-year-old self I would NEVER say when I had kids: “You can’t go out dressed like that!”

Yet my daughter isn’t 17 – she is 10.

She thinks she looks like her pop hero Ariana Grande but she actually looks more like Little Britain’s Vicki Pollard.
At the age of 10 she is not mature enough to process what looks good and how to put it all together.

And why should she be? At the age of 41 I am still making fashion mistakes I know I will live to regret.

But when pop stars whose careers are funded by the tween and teen market parade half-naked on the telly all the time, it is no surprise that their 10-year-old fans think dressing like that is normal.

No wonder kids are confused. Just five years ago Miley Cyrus was Hannah Montana, a wholesome country girl whose line-dancing routines my kids copied from the Disney channel.
Now, at 22, she is the self-styled bad girl of pop, posing provocatively on Instagram as a “sexy schoolgirl” in fishnet tights and a shirt open to her navel.
Then she rocked up to the Adult Swim Upfront Party in New York last week with a mankini barely preserving her modesty.
While no one can blame Miley for wanting to shed her wholesome image and prove to the world that she is all grown up, part of me wants to shake her and her “people”, and unleash a good old-fashioned sense of grown-up responsibility.

She may now be 22 but many of those little girls who watched her TV shows, bought her records and made her a millionaire when she was goody-two-shoes Hannah are still to hit their teens.

As a mum of two daughters, I am a proud feminist and believe firmly that women and girls can achieve anything and should be able to express themselves freely.

In fact, our family motto, much to my husband’s dismay, is borrowed from Beyonce herself: “Who runs the world? Girls!”

But along with achievement, expression and success has to come responsibility. Miley is a role model whether she likes it or not but I fear she is too busy being “grown up” to give that fact a second thought.

Let’s not just point the finger at poor old, misunderstood Miley. They are all at it.


Britney Spears went from the Mickey Mouse Club to launching herself into superstardom dressed as a lollipop-sucking schoolgirl in the video for Baby One More Time back in 1999.
But look how that ended up – failed marriages, losing custody of her children and a stint in rehab.
Yes, she is still coining it in Las Vegas and around the global money-making stadium circuit. But despite being a 33-year-old mum now, she is still falling back on shock and raunch.
At the weekend’s Billboard Music Awards she was prancing around on stage in a sheer catsuit with latex panels barely hiding a thing.


Then there’s Taylor Swift, who transformed herself from sweet and innocent country singer to a global pop phenomenon without barely a hint of scandal or naked flesh. Until now...
The video for her latest single Bad Blood opens with an ass-kicking Taylor in a latex bodysuit in a violent fight scene.
Then 25-year-old Taylor’s “girl-gang”, including Cara Delevingne, 22, Ellie Goulding, 28, and Selena Gomez, 22 – all hero-worshipped by my daughters – proceed to fight with rocket launchers and swords.
They might think it is all very 21st century girl power. I just think it is a bit predictable and unnecessary.

Ofcom cleared ITV’s The X Factor of breaching broadcasting rules after thousands complained about sexy performances by Rihanna and Christina Aguilera before the 9pm watershed in 2010.
I am no prude but I have to admit I was uncomfortable watching with my children. I think that what youngsters are allowed to watch on TV should reflect what they are likely to see in real life.

Pop is not real life and therefore the people behind the industry seem to think there are no rules.

Yes, music is art and no one wants to stifle creativity. But when my kids are singing along in the car to Iggy Azalea, “Cause most guys only want one thing”, or to Robin Thicke, “I know you want it”, it makes me shudder.
Yes, Robin, the line is definitely blurred. My kids have no idea what the words mean but they are effectively children talking dirty.

People might argue it has been going on for years. Madonna, who is still writhing around on stage in fishnet tights and hotpants at the age of 56, practically used “sex sells” as a career plan from the outset. But Madonna never pretended to be a tween role model.
But nowadays the pop career path seems to be: get a child TV star, build them a pre-teen fan base, turn them into a pop star, make them sexy and outrageous.
That might seem a perfectly plausible way to make a living in pop world but I doubt any mother would tell their daughters the way to get ahead at work is to put on a short skirt and a push-up bra and flutter those eyelashes.

Back in the 1980s, Madonna was one on her own – hidden between a bit of innocent Wham! or Bucks Fizz on Top of the Pops.

Now, watching pop music channels is a parenting minefield. My kids’ after-school club had to stop the children watching them as some videos were so explicit.
But that is not the only worry. Our kids can access horrific pornographic images at the click of a button online.
A survey found a quarter of kids had seen online porn by the age of 12 and experts fear exposure to such material can blur kids’ perception of what is appropriate sexual behaviour. Us parents have enough to worry about without pop stars adding to the burden.
Research shows that exposure to sexualised images like those in some music videos can increase the risk of young girls suffering eating disorders, low self-esteem and depression.
At the age of 10, my eldest daughter has already asked me if she is fat or thin – and that makes my heart sink.

No matter how much we reinforce a positive body image at home, my girls are bombarded with so many images out of my control, many of them Photoshopped, that it is no wonder they are confused.

If grown women say that pictures of “perfect” celebrity bodies in the media cripple their self-esteem, then what hope have our children got?

The sad thing is that Miley, Britney, Taylor and co are all amazingly talented, bright, young women.

It is a sad reflection on us as a society that they appear to think being sexy is their biggest selling point.

Why must pop stars like Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande dress like porn stars?19 May 2015

The Pretenders' outspoken lead singer Chrissie Hynde has again raised the spectre of so-called "stripper pop", blasting young singers for selling sex before music.
Hynde has labelled young pop stars "porn stars trying to make records".

The iconic Brass in Pocket hit maker has told the London Evening Standard there were too many scantily clad pop stars and rockers filming videos while wearing next to nothing.

"There's a definite division of what I'd call porn stars trying to make records, and then musicians.

"If you go and see Kate Bush, you'll see a real musician. She takes care of business the way she wants. If a girl walks on stage and starts playing like Jimi Hendrix, believe me, no one will be asking her to take her clothes off," she told the UK publication.

"If anyone says, 'I have to do this because my record company told me', that's a lie. The artist is in control of what they're doing. You can always tell anyone to f--- off.

"If they're under pressure to get their kit off, maybe they should just be making porn films. Maybe they're in the wrong game."
Hynde isn't singling out anyone for criticism, but her remarks come just days after actress Mayim Bialik took aim at Ariana Grande for wearing "lingerie" to promote her new album.

In 2013, Sinead O'Connor attacked Miley Cyrus after watching the pop star's Wrecking Ball video, in which the former Disney regular swings about on a huge metal ball, wearing only boots.
