  11. 11. This lady has been working with artists for years and cast lots of ‘video girls’ - what changes has she seen and what’s her opinion? She has seen the change from minimal naked women and clean videos to a higher level of sexual links. Her opinion is that women should be allowed in videos but not to be portrayed the way they are. (as sexual items). She sees Tashy as “triple threat” which is when they can sing, dance and act. Some of the changes she has seen is that when she worked with groups like Boys to Men and Robert Kelly. In those times she said that a video girl would be beautiful, classy and elegant, however now the girls expected to be in videos are like “sex pistols”.

That men and women are expressed differently and are not equal in terms of how they act and how men and women are proposed to be ‘good looking’.

However for a man he could be a fat person that sits around and wears a baggy shirt to cover it. How has Angel Lola Love’s experience been positive? She has actually been noticed as a star and is a famous video girl in the USA. She is pad thousands to be in videos or even things like to turn up at a nightclub. She has been in videos with artists such as Kanye West and 50 Cent. Also after being a video girl she is using her money to re invent herself as a rap artist.
  14. 14. What conclusions can we draw from this documentary? Though video girls are looked down on as they show foot their body for men it is a trade with many positives and negatives . Positives : girls in videos enjoy it and have a good time; lots of money can be earned from it; it is a big part of the music industry Negatives: very few girls get noticed or paid; some girls do it for the wrong reasons; non- professional artists treat girls with no respect. In conclusion the hip hop honeys industry has a large disparity between the want-to-be girls that have nice bodies and the truly pretty girls that can earn thousands for being in a single video. The chances of becoming a famous hip hop honey are incredibly slim but if women want to spend money, waste time and take risks to get famous then I think they should be allowed.
