- Laura Mulvey is a British feminist film theorist
- She didn't have a specific theory on music videos but instead she ad a theory on the media as a whole and how it is that they represent people.
- Mulvey observed that there was an inequality between male and female in the media and that women are always overly sexualised, which causes the men to be more dominant than the women and it causes male gaze
NICKI MINAJ - ANACONDA
In Nicki Minaj's Anaconda allows a lot of male gaze to take place as theyre are many shots, such as close ups on female body parts which have a sexual nature, making it a focal point in the shot. (0:47 &1:17)
Furthermore, the females (especially the artist herself, are wearing provocative and little clothing. (1:33)
Kent Jones - Don't Mind
This music video illustrates Laura Mulvey's observations as it screams male gaze as you literally see the men gazing at the women of which are wearing swimming costumes to show off their body (0:29). Additionally, the shots of the women show off their body, but mainly body parts that have a sexual nature (1:31). In this music video there are clearly more women than men, but yet the man is more dominant than the women and have more power.
