    I am a friend of Lynn Clark’s. I did enjoy listening to this rhyme and watching the images. And I love your question about what we want our daughters to think. Also, what do we want our sons to think about women is a good question.

    Most of us are guilty of not “digging” past the exterior. Once in a while I think about what it would be like to not be able to see.

    Awesome rap! I loved your choice of pictures and artists.

    YOu address a lot of important issues regarding owmen in the media. Good job creating your own rap! I also really liked how you showed stars like lady gaga and katy perry before after their stardom. Its a little difficult to hear but nicely done!

    I love the juxtaposition of all the images!
    I wish the vocal text was a bit louder than the background music,so I could hear the rap better. Very creative though!

    great rap! little bit hard to hear. I liked the sound clips. I had a bit of a hard time hearing what you said but what you said was very true. and the images you used really helped support your arguments.

    Really good topic! I especially like the use of celebrities’ yearbook photos to prove how much they changed!

    I liked how you showed pictures of these celebrities before they got famous and after they were famous. It is shocking for sure. I liked you you ended it with “lets change the way we see musicians”.

  9. March 10, 2011 at 9:27 pm

    I like how you use different stars such as lady GaGa and Ke$ha to show that people are actually more than who they are underneath. People are too quick to judge people based off how how they look, and not for who they really are.

    This is awesome! I really liked how you incorporated your rap using the different music from each artist. Overall great job!

  11. March 10, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    I liked the music and all the examples of the celebrities. It was a little hard to hear your voice but when I could, there was good points being made.

  12. March 10, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    Your lyrics about looking past the exteroer is very interesting. People of today are very shallow and this video really shows that well. I liked your choice of artists used in the video.

    I really liked you video! I could tell that you really put a lot of work into it. Using the pictures of the Stars before they were famous really related to my video about how women are portrayed in the media. Once these women were in the spotlight they had much different appearances that often shared similarities to the women in the advertisements we found.

    Great video! You addressed a lot of important issues that we are facing today. Just as I tried to explain in my own personal video, the changing times are affecting our generation and the way women are perceived. Great incorporation of how our daughters must think of this type of behavior!

    I like how you showed the pictures of the stars before they were famous to show how much they have changed. It was all very well put together! I like how you used words to accentuate different parts of your rap. It was a good point about how women pop stars have to portray themselves as such crazy characters instead of just being themselves. All your pictures really gave a good example of what you were saying. In my vlog I used still pictures as well to emphasize the point of how we can use social media for good.

  16. March 10, 2011 at 9:42 pm

    The examples of how celebrities have grown up is a great commentary on the way the world has changed.

    I like the questions that you bring you up in your rap. By including the most popular female singers, makes it more effective because almost everyone knows who they are.

  18. March 10, 2011 at 9:54 pm

    Excellent job, it was a little hard to hear the video in class but I got the main message and could hear a lot of the rhymes. I liked how you compared the before and after they got famous part, nice video.

  19. alex7283

    This video was really similar to our video not only with the idea of rapping the idea to the audience, but how the media portrays celebrities in today’s world as “fake”. I really liked the message!

  20. March 10, 2011 at 10:09 pm

    You used more spoken word emphasizing your facts and added music in the background and I used text to make the point that much more emphasized. Your rap contributed to emphasize as well, and I used music instead.

  21. March 10, 2011 at 10:10 pm

    I thought this video was similar to our video of body image because of the way women are presented in the songs. The women that are in the video are all skinny unlike most of the women population. By these women being small and skinny it is not giving their audience a good perception of what is “normal”. It would be nice to see some of these videos of women singing songs all different sizes.

    Isn’t it interesting that we know these women as the famous icon they became rather than the normal girls they were. These girls became famous for a reason, because they can sing and make music. However, when they are portrayed in the media, the fact that they sing gets swept under the rug and pales in comparison to their public image as a beautiful, creative, skinny, fashionable woman.

    Although your video focuses on the impact of music stars on our generation, our videos relate to each other in the sense that we both focus on the idea of a changing generation, maybe for the worse.

  24. March 10, 2011 at 11:20 pm

    Bummer that the lyrics weren’t a bit louder. I loved your overall message though

  25. March 10, 2011 at 11:28 pm

    You mentioned some similar points to our video. Media really is a method of control.

  26. alextarnoczi09

    good video i understood the main points in your video, but the lyrics were a little tough to hear at times. but it was very creative. I like the question you brought up as well at the end of the video. well done.

  27. March 11, 2011 at 12:28 am

    This was a really great vlog! Fabulous job!

    Great job! I loved how you pin-pointed specific people to prove your argument. We also used specific people to prove our argument by relating their childhood behavior to their behavior as a young adult and how media and culture has warped the purity of childhood innocence.

    I feel you did a really nice job in matching your video with your commentary. I also think the fact that you did this vlog as a song when talking about music is a great fit. That to me was really a great combination and shows the effort you took. I also thought your rap was quite good. I thought you brought up some great points in this video as well. Good incorporation of the assignment topic and personal commentary. Nice job.

    Good remixes and images. The words which flashed during your video is in a way like my groups video. We had words in our video which were to back up the points we were making. For example our title “White Man Can Jump”.

  31. March 11, 2011 at 9:34 pm

    I like the music aspect you have going. I love the pop culture that you used as well. Very clevar

  32. March 11, 2011 at 9:35 pm

    some of your lyrics have a similar message to me and Keith’s video…nice job and really creative!

    HOW CREATIVE! love it. Wish i could hear it better, but great images! very relevant to todays media

  34. whitneybliss

    Seems like you spent a lot of time on the rap, wish I could be creative like you!

    Love the lyrics! They are so relevant and we can really see that through the contrast of the women musicians then and now. It’s obvious that you spent a lot of time on this. I enjoyed it.

  36. March 11, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    Wow. You did a really good job! I liked how you used different stars to illistrate your point, and that you showed thier yearbook photos to show how much they have changed. I really liked the end part of your video where you used Nicki Minaj. Very powerful.

    Wow. The before and after images were disturbing. It just goes to show that the difference between the high school class photo and the artificial makeup and hair can transform anyone. They’re literally taking any face and sculpting an entire brand. While there is no doubt this makes for successful marketing, thus financial gains, it really turns “music” into something that it isn’t. While the music industry is thriving, “pop” has gained as much momentum as tv or movie stars. And a lot of times these “stars” play role reversal as well. Your vlog depicts exactly what this transformation does and how, and shows us that anyone with the right makeup and hair can turn into these unrealistic stars.
