As someone already said. Sex sells. Personally, I don't mind either way as long as the song is good and the video itself is on par.

They really ought to put in ratings, though. If/when I'm watching any of these movies and/or music videos with my parents, it tends to get highly uncomfortable when a sex scene comes on and one didn't know that it was there.

I think the confusion comes in when a person doesn't know if the video is rated PG or R.
I don't think genre has much to do with it. Not all romances contain sex scenes and they may contain violence, not all comedies are void of nudity  and may also contain violence. How is one supposed to tell if there's going to be nudity/sex and/or violence without a rating and/or warning?

The only thing needed here is a proper rating system. There is a large audience out there that prefers watching and listening to more adult-oriented songs/videos. So just enfore a good rating system, and let the parents do the rest of the censorship.

However, I don't think sex is a "Western" thing,  It exists everywhere. Everytime something the slightest bit sexual comes up, people automatically say it's "westernization", but sexuality is in every culture, ESPECIALLY in a country with more that 1 billion peopleConfused.

 

Let me guess, all those 1 billion people were from test-tubes, amirite?

Vulgarity in movie song at times could be defended as stating demand of the plot (lame excuse most of the time). But prolonging the vulgar scenes and copyiing western styles of music video, is it the right way to enjoy the music. Are we not moving too fast twords westernization? Is there any mid way where we donot destroy our  music and yet enjoy all east west blends.

 We always crib for the music we hear as akid. Is our generation going to  feel same way when they grow old. Is this the right way to call our self modern and are these the right traits we are giving to our generation in the name of the music?

Is the vulgarity really required in Music Video. Have we lost taste of good music that we need such videos to keep the interest in music alive ?

 

Aghhh why do people look at the western society as a bad influence?! Their are some rules about western society everyone uses (e.g integrity-which had started in their morals before anyone elses). I am a mix and i am half western cuz of my dad so yeah i do take it personally when people say that western society has too much vulgar things in it. Well it depends on what you watch! If you watch vulgar videos you will see "dirty" things and if you see a "clean" video; you will see "clean" things. not rocket science people.

Examples:

"Clean" Video: Bubbly: Colbie Caillathttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PWfB4lurT4

"Dirty" Video: Sexy Can I: Ray J

Not to burst the bubble or anything here; but, I find it ironic that 'Bubbly' was listed as a "clean" song. Well the music video is clean, but the song definitely is not. It is quite obvious what the song is about. Lyrical extracts

I get the tingles in a silly place

but we are hidin in a safer place
under covers stayin safe and warm
you give me feelins that I adore

What am I gonna say
when you make me feel this way
I just........mmmmmm

It starts in my soul
And I lose all control

Anyways speaking of "dirty" how about
"shola sa tan behke aake bujha jaa"
"roop tera mastana, pyar mera deewana, bhool koi hamse na ho jaye, raat akeli, mast sama hain, aaj nashe mein saara jahan hain"
"phool ko bahar, bahar ko chaman, dil ko dil, badan ko badan, har kisi ko chahiye tan ka milan"
"raat akeli hain, bujh gaye deep, aake mere pass, kaanon mein mere, jo bhi chahe kahiye, jo bhi chahe kariye"

What is dirtier?
A "Clean" performance of "I touch myself"
or
a stripper singing "ABCD"

Btw, the west does have some clean music videos. Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Avril Lavigne, Evanescence have all given plenty of clean entertainment. From Europe we have bands like The Cardinags, The Corrs and who can forget classic ABBA, Beatles & Ace of Base who did have plenty of clean songs.

you have said the lyrics to bubby are dirty: but i am sorry to say these aren't the correct ones (they are missing tons) Please take in consideration the comments in the brackets are MY OPINIONS

your version:

get the tingles in a silly place

but we are hidin in a safer place
under covers stayin safe and warm
you give me feelins that I adore

What am I gonna say
when you make me feel this way
I just........mmmmmm

Song version:

But anytime i see your bothered face i get the tingles in a silly place
it starts from my toes and i crinkle my nose (his bothered face..not when she is feeling sexual)

The rain is falliing on my window pain  but we are hidin in a safer place
under covers stayin safe and warm
you give me feelins that I adore (protection from the rain SOOo vulgar)

What am I gonna say
when you make me feel this way
I just........mmmmmm (her boy frind makes her feel warm and nice)


Avril Lavinge has used vulgar-ness in her songs...

"I'm the best damn thing your eyes have ever seen"- The best damn thing (its pretty vulgar she is reffering to herself as a sex object)

"He'll be wrapped around my finger cuz i can cuz i can do it better"- Girlfriend (sooo not vulgar- shes just telling the world she gr8 at having sex)...

Thoughts to ponder and please anyllaze the verse it's put in,!
