I disagree with Christina Aguilera wholeheartedly. Why should female artists, or better yet, women as a whole want to be equal to men? If objectifying women and singing about demoralizing society in their videos makes the male artists money, then they should be allowed to do it. The women in some of those videos should know better and should have more respect for themselves, but unfortunately, they don’t. For the majority of them, it’s all about the Bens. Anyway, back to women. If the lowering of standards makes the men successful, then why the hell would women want to do the same? Women have more class than men, are more refined, and are expected to maintain a certain level of elegance and graciousness, in spite of the fact that some fail at even that. I honestly believe that it is the responsibility of every female artist out there to turn the negative image of women(what makes male artists so successful) into a positive one by not objectifying themselves (i.e. Britney, Christina, Mariah, J.Lo) in their own videos. That would be a start. I love Christina, don’t get me wrong, but I think she’s mouthed off on the wrong thing. Women who want to be equal to men lack ambition, and Christina is a prime example of that. Just my two cents.
Lastly, I want everyone to know that I love men. I just had to make a point and in the likely event that I offend someone, then I am sincerely sorry.
