Yay for Ne-Yo and “Miss Independent”!

Questions to Consider:

  • Why are music videos made? What do they sell?
  • How does this video make you feel when you watch it?
  • How are women portrayed in this video?

What We Think:

Kudos to R&B artist Ne-Yo for shining a positive, “independent” light on women striving for success in the video “Miss Independent”. Usually when we watch music videos, especially hip-hop and R&B videos, we’re used to seeing half-naked women plastered over cars and the artists. This video shows a positive perspective of the modern hard-working woman in a tasteful way. Yes ladies, you can show the power of women without degrading yourselves. Ne-Yo is the proof.
