Ok, I know I am out of touch with pop music, but does this male nudity/skimpy dress really happen to the same extent and to the same levels as female skimpy dress in pop music? And when it does happen, does it really have the same connotations? Surely one of the issues is that this sort of expectation is such a norm in female pop music, even The Norm. And as highlighted in the jezabel article posted by weepiper a few pages back, female almost nudity is so common in pop it's not shocking anymore. And when it stops being shocking and different, it starts to become what is expectated. Tbf I had problems with the way Sinead made her point. The general point though, about the expectations of the industry, was an important one to make, just to show there are alternatives out there. Words are quite weak compared to actions though. Are there many young women in pop actually living an alternative ATM?
