                                          Music Video Task

Wrecking ball by Miley Cyrus represents women in a bad way because she is dancing around set naked with just her back covering her private parts from being viewed by everyone watching. The props are a wrecking ball which she swings on naked, enjoying herself as she does it. She also licks a sledge hammer sexually. She is wearing masacara as it smudges during the video. The location is in a small room with a wall put up and the ball swings through it. The camera is mainly zoomed out so that everything can be seen. An example of Miley Cyrus looking sexual is in the picture, she is licking the sledge hammer in such a way she is imaging it is something else, which is pleasuring the viewers, also in some scenes she is naked with just a chain covering her private parts.

California Gurls by Katy Perry represents women in a bad way because she is basically naked covered up by a piece of soap, the props are lots of candy and dice. She is waling through a make believe candy world that every sweet comes to life as something, for example a strawberry lace turns into a snake. Whilst naked she often winks and licks her lips. For example in the picture she is half naked and licking the candy and using seductive eyes to look at the camera.  The video often zooms in on her facial expressions, e.g when she is licking her lips.
McHammer cant touch this represents girls in a positive way because the girls and all covered up and look classy and are treated like queens, as well as looking classy they act classy, their facial expressions are not sexual in anyway. They do not look although they are surrounded by a big gang of boys and are being used, instead they are respected and not looked upon in a sexual way!
