“Slut-erizer” Won Fuse’s Best Music Video 08

Public morality is down the drain, and most Americans are increasingly desensitized by the media. Television seems to be the biggest influence on what many consider morally acceptable. Take Britney Spears as an example. Not only is she still the most talked about celebrity in America, but her video for “Womanizer” recently won her Fuses’ Best Music Video of 2008. It would be one thing if it was just a bunch of judges from the music scene, but it wasn’t. It was by popular demand. The people voted on this one.

When I watched the video of “Womanizer”, which was the Director’s Cut on YouTube, I almost thought I was watching a porno. Britney Spears’ spends most of her time in the nude and is very provocative in her body language. Her style of clothing, when she is actually wearing some, is not much different than a hooker on Cherry St.

After watching this video I decided to find out what all the fuss was about. I know that a lot of it (most of it) had to do with her squirming around all oiled up, but I thought maybe the lyrics had some kind of value to them. What was she trying to tell people. At least in words.

I don’t think the person who wrote this song did a very good job. Maybe that is because I like lyrics to be more meaningful, or at least tell a story. Just take a look at the lyrics! It was either written by a bad writer, or maybe someone who knows how to write to an audience who could care less about quality songs.

The visual aspect of the video is just as bad, or maybe worse. I have heard many people argue that it is fine to be naked (or almost naked) in a music video or on television. Then they normally say, “as long as they don’t really ‘show anything.'” But does this make any sense? How can you be naked, or almost naked, and not “show anything”? These kind of images show a lot! They actually show way too much.

This whole thing is a slippery slope. Where do we draw the line? I can see where the partial nudity on today’s TV will be full nudity on tomorrow’s, but I don’t see where the people or politicians will stand up and say “enough smut!”.

Television is always pushing the boundaries. They did it with swear words and now they are doing it with nudity. The only possible excuse that I can think of is that the body is considered art. This is a bad excuse. Seeing sex scenes or provocative images adds nothing to the “art” of film. Nothing. There is no reasonable excuse for this kind of thing. None.

We need moral and intelligent people willing to look at the horrible effects this kind of perversion has on the viewing public, especially younger people. We ned parents who care about what their children watch and who most influences the way their kids think and behave.

How did we even get like this? Whose fault is it? I have a feeling that the answer is looking back at us every time we step in front of a mirror. Our own worst enemy is our only hope.

  1. Totus Tuus ad Jesum per Mariam

    Though I believe this is a quote from Pope John Paul II I can’t source it.
    “The problem with pornography is not that it shows to much of the women, but that it shows to little.”

    By to little he means, of course, that fails to show the beauty of her soul.

    You should check out Our Lady of America, and approved Marian apparition which took place to Sister Mary Ephrem in the 50’s. In those visions Mary, as well as Jesus and Joseph, call upon us to honor her not by consecrating ourselves to her only but also by “faith, love, and the purity of our lives”. She wanted America to be the instrument through which purity was brought to the world. She even promised greater miracles than that at Fatima and Lourdes. The miracles, however, are miracles of grace not of the body.

  2. “First, negatively, smash the television set. The Catholic Church is not opposed to violence; only to unjust violence; so smash the television set. And, positively, put the time and money you now spend on such entertainment into a piano so that music is restored to your home, common, ordinary Christian music, much of which is very simple to play.”

  3. The answer to our cultures problem is astoundingly simple. We have a spineless church that will not defend the Bible. I don’t care what denomination we’re speaking about.

    People get all misty eyed when you mention the name C.S. Lewis. I love C.S. Lewis. But some of what you wrote in his “Signature Series” is the most horrific smut to ever see print.

    When we allow Christians to accept any belief system other than Christianity, we destroy the foundation for Christian morality.

    You can’t tell people that God’s word is wrong, that they arose from apelike creatures who were always naked, and then expect them to have a problem with nudity.

    The number of Christians who think it is ok to accept evolution is an abomination, and those Christians are directly responsible for our nation’s moral collapse. They won’t say the Bible is true, but they want people to believe it.

  4. Ohh, I don’t know maybe because the Jews run Hollywood:

    Talk about spineless Christians—defending the Bible? How about controlling the culture. But no Catholic would ever find or point out the real problem–that would be anti-semitic.

  6. Wheeler,

    I am very aware of how easy it is for you to boil down all of life’s problems to the Jews or Christians who aren’t as manly as the boy-loving Greeks of old. But this one is a little tougher than that. For even if Hollywood is owned by the Jews (and I am not here contesting that assertion), that doesn’t resolve the fact that the prize was voted on by the public, a public of which the Jews are an extremely small minority.

    Listen, if you want to theorize as to a causal connection between the Jews, that particular video, and the public that chose it as their favorite, then fine. I’ll stick with placing the causal connection within that realm of things held common… like original sin, human nature, wicked worldviews, and the devious application of these things to real life situations.

    No Catholic? That is one of the dumbest things I have ever read from you… and that is saying a lot. Please stop being stupid here. Seriously, you are a bright guy. You are passionate about what you believe. But sometimes your remarks blaze 100 mph past sensibility and intellectual honesty. Seriously, try to do better.
