Sexual objectification of female artists in music videos exists regardless of race, MU study finds
Date:4/4/2012

In their study, Frisby and Aubrey found that sexual objectification of female artists in music videos existed equally, regardless of the artist's race. However, they did find that African-American artists tended to wear more sexually provocative attire than other female artists.

"It has been known that music videos featuring male artists often sexually objectify women, but our study shows that many female artists are objectifying themselves in their music videos," Frisby said. "However, despite numerous existing sexual stereotypes regarding black women, they don't appear to objectify themselves any more or less than women of other races."

For their study, Frisby and Aubrey reviewed all "Billboard Top 10" music videos from 2006-2010. They found that out of three main genres of music (country, pop, and hip hop/R&B), female artists
