There’s way too much talk about the elections going on. CNN, Fox, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, even G@G... And I don’t know about the rest of you guys, but I need a break. Maybe even a little bit of a laugh
So I decided to comb through YouTube today and actually watch some music videos. Most of them were pretty good. Well filmed, songs were decent, not much to complain about…
But then…then there’s that dark side to music entertainment. Whether video was poorly filmed, not put together, or just all together awkward, these videos probably didn’t help the artist out that much and should not have been upload.
Here’s 5 trashy music videos that will make your skin crawl.
**Note: This Take is only concerning the music video itself, not necessarily the song. Although…some of these songs are just as bad as their videos…
1. Stupid Hoe – Nicki Minaj
I think the title for this video speaks for itself and doesn't need much of an explanation. However, for people who don't know, Nicki Minaj advertised herself as 'Black Barbie' when she came out, which just so happened to be the label of little Kim when she was still relevant. There was a huge argument between the two of them and the result was, you guessed it, this diss video. In response, Lil' Kim said in an interview, "If you make a video called 'Stupid Hoe', then you're probably a stupid hoe."
2. These Boots Are Made For Walkin’ – Jessica Simpson
I'll admit, the beginning of this video doesn't start out trashy, but as it goes on it, it just becomes more and more half naked dumb blonde stereotype. The men tend to like this video (no surprise) while Simpson was criticized by women for perpetuating sexual stereotyping.
No wonder people prefer the original.
3. Achy Breaky 2 – Buck 22 ft. Billy Ray Cyrus
The literal definition of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
4. BB Talk – Miley Cyrus
And, of course, if I put Billy Ray Cyrus on here, his daughter had to be somewhere, too. And, honestly, I was going to put 'Wrecking Ball' on here, but the song wasn't that bad. Unfortunately, BB Talk fails in both the song (if you can call it that) and video. Just...oh, just watch, you'll see what I mean...
5. Bound 2 – Kanye West
I actually don't dislike the song for this one, but let's be real. This video was just an excuse to for Kim to pull her tits out. And, even if it wasn't, it was poorly executed. I mean, her hair isn't even blowing in the right direction when you think about the direction the bike SHOULD be moving. Then there's Kanye just waving his hands in the camera for no reason like he's trying to clean off a dry erase board. This video is just a mess. Also, if you're wondering, the beginning song is 'Nobody To Love' by Sigma, and trust me, that song and video isn't any better than this.
Thanks for reading. Hopefully I was able to take your mind off of the election for a bit and give you some relaxation. Lord knows we all need it!
