Rihanna – What’s my Name? – So trashy

Posted: November 15, 2010 in Uncategorized

So, if anyone would like to watch Rihanna’s video for her song “What’s my Name,” here it is:

I know there are a lot of videos circulating on YouTube and elsewhere that are just as trashy, but I’d think that a woman who had experienced domestic violence would do more to prevent the same types of altercations from happening to others.

Her video almost seems to be promoting society’s problems, such as promiscuity, rising teenage pregnancy, domestic violence, instant gratification, underage drinking, substance abuse, etc. This urban pop scene that has become so popular has more creative power to influence young listeners than teachers have. Teachers have to follow some form or script, agenda, or curriculum. Musicians are really free to express themselves in whichever way they choose. Maybe Rihanna will mature a little and make better use of her talents. I mean, the oh na na lyrics are catchy and the song itself isn’t the most horrible creation ever, but for me, the video ruined it.
