Breast I Ever Had  

Bust posted about this music video, and it just made me want to puke. Sadly, it's for "Best I Ever Had" by Drake, and as an avid Degrassi fan for 7+ years, it kills me that my beloved Jimmy Brooks objectifies women to no end. I know he probably had little to no say in how the video played out, but as Bust writes, he's defended it, saying, "When women see the video and see all the breast and ass, hopefully they don't take offense."

Well, sorry Drake, but I take offense. When you turn women into mere body parts, I take offense. When the camera is focused on their breasts more often than their faces, I take offense. When the only real women in the video who look like real basketball players are the villains in the story, I take offense. Then again, should I really expect anything more from a song that says, "I can make your pussy whistle like the Andy Griffith theme song"?

What next?

    I saw the video and thought it was really disappointing how women were objectified in it. But then again a lot of the music videos that come out are very similar to this one, yet not a lot of people seem to have a problem with it including women.
    I've seen several women sing along and dance to this song, and the way women were portrayed in the video doesn't really seem to bother them.
    Unless more women and men take a stand on these videos i think they will keep being made. After all its because there is demand for videos like this that they keep being released. So as long as people keep watching, these videos will be around for a long time.
