tru that kinda undermines anything she’s tryin to say regardless of what it is

I see i see
Anonymous said: (Cont) men like big butts is like well yeah duh. "Little in the middle but she got much back" is not revolutionary this is already desirable esp in the way of men fetishising black women's bodies as fuller etc. not sure if this makes sense but yeah it's complicated.... The bit where she throws away the banana is great though haha... Idk I think generally it is her talking about her sexual conquests and how she's the best (which she is imho) in a way that male artists do AALLLL the time
No that was really really interesting, it does get kinda skewed eh cause i guess woman can watch it and be like whoa badass woman taking control of her sexual attraction but it does fetishise that one body type and men will probs just get off watching it, but ya male artists do it too but with more clothes on which is dumb
Anonymous said: Anaconda is complicated bc on the one hand it is nicki showing herself as powerful and in control and that women's sexuality doesn't necessarily have to be a certain way for it to be real or respectable (ie beyonce did very well promoting women's sexuality but it was still v respectable ie she bangin one guy her husband who she bin bangin for like 10 years) BUT at the same time, body types that are considered typical of black women (ie curvy, bootylicious etc) are fetishized so saying (cont)
yes yes i see

Anonymous said: I guess anaconda created a lot of attention because the song is about thick girls who are preferred for a man's sexual desire. Skinny girls are often, many times, are viewed as more beautiful in society. Girls with more curves are usually called fat for this reason. Yes, I don't agree with how nicki minaj tries to get this point across. At the end of the day, music is business, and they will do what will bring more profit.
aye yeah i see the intentions, cheers
