How pop became porn (not!)

Oh no! Shock Horror! Sex kills children!!!!! :roll: Liz Jones of the mail is either the worlds biggest prude or is deliberately being an agent provocateur to bring out the sexually obsessed out of the woodwork. You should read the prudes comments below the article in the DAILY FAIL itself. Looks like they've set up a grapevine of responders to click down anyone not obsessed with sex and nudity

And Linda Papadopoulos is an idiot.

By Prude Liz Jones

The woman is naked - or looks like she is. Only a flesh-coloured leotard covers her body. Her long blonde hair tumbles down her back. She's in a cage, sliding her fingers provocatively in and out of her mouth.

A scene from a clichéd pornographic film? Sadly not. The woman in question is Shakira, a pop superstar and the fourth richest singer in the world.

The images can be seen in the video for her single, She Wolf, which will be watched obsessively, again and again, by thousands of young men and women, many of whom will form the opinion that writhing in a cage is precisely the way 'sexy' women should behave.
Image
Girl's Aloud complete with Cameltoe - Tidy!!

Meanwhile, in the video for her single, Rude Boy, Rihanna, an American pop star most famous for having been beaten up by her boyfriend, is dressed in leather bondage gear. She writhes on the floor. She sits astride a zebra.

Even the wholesome-in-real-life, meek and mild Leona Lewis is transformed in her music videos into passive victim, usually portrayed sliding around on the floor (can the male directors of these short films really not come up with anything else?).

Common themes? Girls in cages (in a mainstream Girls Aloud video, Lindsay Lohan is trapped in a bird cage). Girls dressed as animals. Girls caressing themselves. Girls lying prone, and who look as though they have been or are about to be raped.

Women filmed in dark, wet alleyways, inevitably dressed as prostitutes (the hugely famous female artists who have been portrayed in this scenario are far too numerous to mention).

I have just spent 24 hours watching MTV's various, numerous channels. My eyes hurt. My brain has lapsed into a confused coma. I felt nauseated one moment, bored out of my skull the next.

Yesterday, psychologist Linda Papadopoulos delivered a 100-page report to the Home Office into violence against women, and called for sexual or provocative pop videos to be banned before the watershed of 9pm.

ImageImage
This apparently is porn.


'Children and young people today are not only exposed to increasing amounts of hypersexualised images,' she wrote in the report. 'They are also sold the idea that they have to look "sexy" and "hot".'

This report follows on the heels of recent promises by both Labour and Conservative MPs to do more to combat the early sexualisation of young girls: the sale of padded bras for children, sparkly pink T-shirts daubed with the slogan 'When I grow up I want to be a WAG', and the like.

On Woman's Hour a week ago, David Cameron spoke about how he wanted to stop his very young daughter listening to Lily Allen's music because of the provocative lyrics, but that he had failed miserably.

This is because parents are powerless to police all these images and their dangerous messages. MTV - which pumps this stuff out all day long - and You Tube are just too powerful.

As well as a moratorium on sexually explicit videos on television, stricter measures need to be introduced as to what can be viewed by children on the internet, because the safeguards are laughable.

Pop stars themselves are never going to change, fearing they will seem out-of-touch, past it, or simply tame in a cultural climate which has seen soft porn merging with mainstream music videos.

When I have challenged female pop stars about why they allow themselves to be portrayed in this way, particularly when they know how young their fans are, they always spout the same nonsense.

When I asked Shakira, the Latin American superstar, how she can square being sexy, wearing skimpy clothes, with her charitable work championing children in the developing world, she replied indignantly: 'Of course I can square it! I think my image is one of being powerful, in control.'

Why, then, appear as a tawdry pinup on the cover of FHM magazine?

Compared to something like T.A.T.U - Girls Aloud are positively tame.

I don't mind psychologists too much. They let you get a lot of crap off one's chest. I had to see a few in my school days who were quite helpful to me in that regard. (I was a rather angry and violent minded little shite back then.)

I've seen her about on TV and she seems very short, yet this picture makes her look rather gangly. :) Very strange (but nice) picture, Wotsit. :D :thumb:

She very attractive but, along with the nauseous Tanya Byron, she's one of the TV "Experts" that are wheeled on as part of the mass nedia indoctrination as described in the Inverted Totalitarianism! article

hahahahaha :) :)

I put two comments on that article under the pseudonym Caroline Spacey yesterday... both got published... and I'm pleased to say have been negatively rated by the gaggle of prudes who read the Daily Fail


"I feel so sorry for children in this country who are exposed to sex everywhere, even in commercials on tv, all day long." - says Kelly from wiltshire.

Sex on TV all day long? I wish!!! What a load of nonsense. Sex isn't allowed to be on TV all day long. It's against the law. Please stop the hyperbole.

Why are we breeding a nation of prudes?

- Caroline Spacey, Chesterfield, 27/2/2010 23:14



What a bunch of Prudes!!! Including the author of this article. Why the obsession with sex and nudity?

Go and spend a day on a nudist beach and watch people, including families with young children, enjoying themselves without these Victorian prudish guilt trips and embarrassments

How DID she do that? You are right though, two completely different outfits on the same night? Dr Linda must be some sort of clothes ninja in her spare time. :ninja:

She does nothing for me. Just as movies with too many special effects are tired and boring, I find Beyonce's warbling as tedious and uninspired as the vocal gymnastics of Mariah Carey.

They are like guitar players who play too many notes, instead of focusing on the *right* notes. There is absolutely nothing original about her or any of the warbling divas. They are beyond boring.
