Music, Money &
Hip Hop Honeys
What point did the presenter
make about videos just a few
years ago and videos now?
In recent times more female
artists have set the standard for
women to be more sexy and
revealing. Also between 2013
and 1998 the fact about women
being more revealing has grown
Why were these important in the
development of music videos?
They were some pf the first videos in which
women were used as more of a sexual item rather
then average people in music videos ( mainly hip
hop music). These videos acted as a revelation
that changed music videos around the world.
How did ‘Tashy Jay’ chose to represent herself
in the documentary?
She sows that she is all about glamour and almost like a diva
when in her videos. However she says that she knows her limits
and has a class that the other girls do not have.
What was she saying about ‘video
girls’ at the shoot?
Some of the girls only turn up to get close
to the star and to get publicity. Also the
girls in the videos are not professional and
just try to show themselves off to get a job
Why do they need these
girls in their videos?
To appeal to a wider range of a male
audience and sell more records
What did he think about
He thinks that having sexy girls in
the video is good and “ sex sells”
Where did they find all these girls? Wouldn’t it be
expensive to pay them all?
They put out adds on social networking sites, also most of the girls
that show up and the girls that are in the video are not paid at all.
How does China Black illustrate some of
the issues with how women are represented
in music videos?
China black says that women are illustrated as sex objects and do
things other girls would not do. They are only there to be with
attractive men and are terrible role models. They take themselves
to extreme lengths to get notices of get a breakthrough with their
These women believe they are the
ones with the power. They believe
they are exploiting men, not the
other way around. What do you
I think that it work both ways in different
areas for example men exploit women when
they don’t pay them for videos however
when in strip clubs and selling pictures the
women are exploiting the men
This sexual equality expert argues that
music videos have a lot to answer for what’s the issue?
That women are treated differently to men. Hey are
treated like disposable items in the sense that “I’m
going to use you for what I need then get rid of
you”. However men are shown as symbols of power
and control to show status.
What does the government think?
The government think that sexual videos can
influence the way that people act in real life around
K.I.G use ‘video girls’ - what
do they think of them?
They think that the girls are ‘hoes’ and
act slutty to get in bed with a famous
person or to try and get noticed for the
Music Video Director ‘Digital
Dan’ has a lot to say - what does
he think of the girls?
He treats them like objects and says its
their choice if the want to act slutty and
like sexual items and he has no problem
dealing with them. A quote of his is “ if we
pay you, shut up, stand there and get you
What happened to Alisha?
She was tricked into thinking that she was
going to be in a photo shoot by a fake
modeling company on a social networking
site but instead when she arrived at the
place she was told there was a man that
oiled her up and sexually assaulted her.
After being assaulted she told the police and
the man went to court but got away with it.
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”.
Why is she challenged on this performance by the presenter?
As she is the only girl in the video so the focus is on her as a video girl. Also this is the first
video where she is wearing a thong, even though she said that she would not. The presenter
of the show says that se thinks that Tashy Jay is compromising to suit more demanding and
This is the US ‘Ambassador for Hip Hop’ - what
is her view?
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’. She says that for a women to be good looking she must have
good bodily features, a pretty face and very skinny. 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
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
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.
