Transcript of The Female Gender Representation

The costuming for Blurred Lines
The clothing in the clean version still heavily objectifies women, they are pictured in the music video wearing skimpy, tight white revealing clothes (the white color connotes to purity and innocence). The men on the other hand are wearing full suits, suggesting that they are the ones in charge, again leading back to the objectification of women. In the explicit version the males wear the same clothes, but the women are fully naked with the acceptation of a skin colored g-string.
The scene for the music video is just set on a beige set with simple lighting.
Mise En Scene:
Blurred Lines
The most common theme to come out of modern day music videos is the objectification of women. One of the biggest examples of this can be seen in both versions of Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Line', in both the normal version and explicit version of the music video women are objectified and are shown as objects of the men. In the explicit, uncensored version women are presented in a way that can be referred to as 'soft porn', because music videos are considered an art form, directors feel that they can get away with presenting women almost fully nude. Due to the fact that music videos are considered an art form, it is deemed acceptable that women can be shown as being treated like animals.
Objectification Of Women:
Close Up Shot
The camera work throughout Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines' is considered to further act upon the objectification of women. The video focuses on the barely clothed, skimpy outfits that the women wear in the normal version of the music video, and then in the explicit version focuses on their naked bodies. Throughout the music video there are many shots that focus on close ups of women's body parts, thus further objectifying them. Most of the camera work throughout the video is chosen in a way that positions the males in a higher position, with many shots of the video consisting of the women playing with different 'things', once again this further heightens the objectification by making the man the more powerful.
Camera Work:
Robin Thicke
Blurred lines is Robin's sixth album to be released since 2003. Blurred lines was also Robin's first song to hit #1.
The unrated video for Blurred lines was banned from YouTube due to its female nudity, the clean version has had more than 127 million views.
The music video was directed by Diane Martel, it features Thicke, Williams and T.I. along with nude models.
Thicke addressed the debate over the song's lyrics during an interview. "When we made the song, we had nothing but the most respect for women and - my wife, I've been with the same woman since I was a teenager,"

Blurred Lines Lyrics
Thicke's explanation of the songs lyrics are: "It is mostly throwaway fun, but naturally Pharrell and I - being in love with our wives, having kids and loving our mothers - we have a lot of respect for women," "So the way we were seeing it is, 'I know man tries to domesticate you but you're an animal, you are just like any man'.
"It is also about the blurred line between a good girl and bad girl, people who want to get naughty,"
Many people do not view it in the same way as Robin intended, which is the main reason for the bad press that Blurred Lines has received.
