Nicki Minaj's music sends too many false stereotypes and messages to those that listen to it. This video supports the idea that young women must expose themselves and have curvy figures to receive sexual attention from men, and that a man won't want them unless they're a particular way. Not only does this send the wrong messages to young women, but it also validates the disgusting and violating habits that young men have acquired. Men are constantly objectifying women's bodies and acting like they own them. This music only further validates all of these ideologies in our society.
This video makes the impression on young women that their bodies must be a certain way, and they must show off their bodies to get attention from men. Could this possibly be linked to the countless sexting cases all over our nation? Skip to 1:33 in the video to have a full body shot of Nicki Minaj's perfect, curvy body. Consider how this makes girls all over the globe feel about their bodies. Young girls all over the country wear the tightest clothes and feel like they must showcase their bodies to attract the men around them, making them think that attraction is mostly physically based.
Nicki Minaj is an extremely influential and popular artist amongst todays youth. The ideologies and stereotypes in her music are reflected in todays youth in my eyes, and I believe there should be more of a filter and critical audience of popular music today than there is.
