I don't really keep up with pop videos on the music channels. I usually read about them on entertainment blogs and watch them on YouTube. Don't get me wrong, "Single Ladies" is my jam, but I'm just saying, it would be nice to catch up on what the most popular black pop stars are doing and see somebody in pants occasionally.
I find it odd and interesting that bodysuits have become required attire for pop singers recently. Beyonce's pants-less in her "Single Ladies" video, Rihanna is pant-less in her video for "Rehab", Christina Milian's not wearing pants in her video for "Us Against The World", Ciara is pants-less in her upcoming video with JT, "Love Sex Magic", Britney Spears, all of 'em are just pants-less. It's strange really. I get that it's nothing new (Madonna, Cher and others before them performed without pants on), but right now it seems like all the young songstresses are wearing the same thing and not much of it. It's predictable and boring. It's one thing to show a little leg, but they're wearing things that require that all signs of puberty below the waist to be removed in order to wear and that's a little extra. Yes, it's shocking at first and there's the admiring of the hours they've obviously put in at the gym, but are we out of original ideas? As inspirational as some of these displays may be, sometimes not-enough is not enough. Have we seen it all already? Pun intended.
