In a world where social media reigns king and reality TV reigns queen, its easy to give our attention to people and situations that don’t really matter. Let's put our critical thinking skills and abilities to serve others to good use, because TALK IS STILL CHEAP!!
Too Sheets for the Streets : Raheem Devaughn & Keri Hilson
I don't really care for music videos like I used to. I don't even watch 106 & Park, which is about the only video countdown show still left on the air. They just don't do it for me like they used to. Video's hardly match the message of the song these days. (The most popular music often doesn't have a "message", but that's another blog post) Anyway, two videos in particular have received a lot of attention lately. Keri Hilson's "The Way You Love Me" and Raheem Devaughn's "She's Single" video.
Keri's video seems to be either a strong HATE it or LOVE it. I would say the men Love it and the women Hate it, but I've seen some men state their distaste for the video and some women have praised her danced moves. In my opinion her raunchy dance moves look just like some moves Beyonce does or would do, but Hilson just repeats them "several" times throughout the video. In other words, I guess Beyonce is a little more discreet with her "pelvis thrust" dance moves. You know what they say ... a lady in the streets and a freak in the sheets ..... this video may have went just a little too sheets for the streets.
Watch Keri Hilson's new video "The Way You Love Me"
DeVaughn's video on the other hand ... has been banned from Youtube for sexual content. Wow!! This video is definitely for the bedroom and i guess its too much for the streets... ya know according to Youtube. Check it out below! Watch Raheem Devaughn's "She's Single" video
What do you think of these two videos? Keri Hilson's video still remains on Youtube ... does the double standard apply to this situation or is it just the opposite in the video world?? Is it okay for women to raunch out a video but not the men? Did Keri and/or Raheem do too much??
Should "She's single" be banned from Youtube?
