MJ: Sexism in Music Videos

N.E.R.D - Lapdance

  • Men in the video are fully dressed in labelled clothing, whilst the women are seen dancing around in skimpy clothes or just underwear.
  • Dismemberment occurs in which the camera shows just the girls hips, legs, stomachs etc.
  • The women have a decorative role in the house party, giving members of the band lap dances, whilst in cut scenes shown dancing whilst the person raps.
  • The girls are shown caressing each other, so they are shown to have the feminine touch, whilst the men ride around on bikes.
  • There is also use of artificial air around the girls, as they are all blonde, skinny and narrow hipped.
