I like Erykah Badu, I think she is talented and unique in her style. She strikes me as grounded and a secure woman of the 21st century. When I look at her, it’s like viewing a painting. She is very different, you have no choice but to see the person.
The patterns emerging in the music industry do seem to center on relationships and sex. Sex sells records. It is unfortunately that women want to portray themselves in that way. However, money could be the major influence as to why women allow themselves to be portrayed as sex symbols and giving of themselves to men. Sometimes women do what they have to do in some cases to survive. Some music videos are disrespectful and define women as being desperate and insecure. But it sells. Is this how women of today view themselves or is it a matter of surviving?
