The music video no matter what it is
means something to the songwriter. It only matters if they are satisfied with them self.

because, believe it or not, the people demand to see people fulfilling those roles. o suggest if you want these roles abolished, you look elsewhere, at the bigger picture

you may be correct in that women are being viewed as sexual objects in this day and age, but that is not due to just music videos, in fact it doesnt play a.huge role at all. there are many, countless other factors included in that categorization we view them as now.

in these videos, men do drugs, fight, and look cool, while the women look sexy, both fulfill the roles already set by society, as a marketing scheme. they may not be helpimg the image, but thier not causimg it directly, and are merely using it as a financial scheme

You do not have to take off your clothes to fit into a certain genre of music.
what is the need to be prancing a half naked woman or more about just to have a fun party song?
The problem is not the genre but is the fact weman are being seen in this light ie a sex object.

that is why we have age restrictions on videos. if its innapropiate, it will tell you, so dont watch it.
if your problem is the music however, continue reading.
music ie all opinion based. some people like serious, deep songs, others like party, hardcore songs. its a vast art form with alot of genres, some people like it all, some people like just one, or some genres.

that being said, we shouldnt hate on someone elses opinion. deep songs may be more meaningful, but party songs are fun with friends, or when your out. with that out there, it cam all be based on the mood your in, but its good to listen to both.

now that thats established, the conclusion is that the video should fit the song. a party song shouldnt feature a depressed female singing into a mirror. no, it should feature a fun time with women, if need be.

Furthermore, what if the message is that the artist likes big butts, refuses to be dishonest, and experts others to be equally truthful about their physiological reaction to people of the opposite sex with narrow waists and large posteriors? The visuals to match the message would, by necessity, be women showing off their bodies.

Music videos are about marketing the music to the target audience. If sex sells, it will be used. Commercials have attractive women stand next to cars to market them because by depicting beautiful people, the cars look more attractive. The price is right has models stand next to products for the same reason. If music videos should stop using sex to sell music, advertising should too, as should shows like game of thrones that use gratuitous T&A.

The statement is true .

Its not about how much fun they get from watching the video, its about how appropriate this video is.
some music videos have a good message and some are just talking about how good a woman looks with videos that in courage what the media show off as a good looking woman.
Is there really a need to have multiple half naked weman dancing on poles or objects to get a point across?

This shouldn't be a problem... unless your a saint!
How many people have been to a party or a rave with half naked guys and girls in and posted on a social network the next day how much fun they've had?
well music videos is exactly the same but instead of posting it on a social network they make it into music.
