Madonna - Hung Up (Official Music Video)

"Hung Up" by Madonna from Confessions On A Dance Floor, available now. Download on iTunes: http://bit.ly/WbRka6 Connect With Madonna: Website: http://www.mad...
Allissa Purkey's insight:

  Madonna can be seen as a woman in the music industry who cannot seem to realize her actual age.  The music industry and social views have forced women, especially older women, in the music industry to change the way they look in order to stay relevent.  For instance, in this music video of her she is dressed in a unitard that seems quite revealing.  Her bust is popping out, and her genital region is quite revealing.  It seems as though in order for the older musicians to stay relevent they need to change their ways of fashion and dress like the younger crowd.

Mariah Carey Style

Mariah Carey Style | Fashion and The Music Industry | Scoop.it
Allissa Purkey's insight:

I did not even go into any of the articles because I found what I was looking for.  Each headline was about how 'sexy' Mariah Carey was, and how she could become a style icon.  One headline was about her being onstage, but it was not about her singing, it was about how she was still looking good for having a broken arm.  In her early career she was looked at as one of the best singers in the world and now there is a rare mention of her talent.  What has happened, do we only care about what others look like rather then their talents?

This article focuses on Selena Gomez's fashion image in her music video for her single "Come and Get It". Sheer and lace, and bare legs and cleavage are seen in her outfits throughout the video which were all pretty risque and revealing. In one of the scenes, the sex appeal goes even further when Selena is in a pool and looks topless. The sultry video pushes Selena's sexy image to the limit, and that is exactly what she is going for. She is transforming her image by wearing daring clothing that exposes her grown female image.

This article discusses Miley Cyrus's efforts to leave "Hannah Montana" behind and embrace her adult image. Her VMA performance, where she wore a nude bikini, was very risque and sexual. The author of the article states that Disney stars, like Miley, go through this phase where they say "hey, I'm not that little kid anymore, I'm a grown up lady." She is completely transforming her look and catching everyone's attention, and that is exactly what she wants. She wants people to be talking about how she wore basically nothing and twerked on stage because that kills the idea of anything related to the young, Hannah Montana.

Allissa Purkey's comment, December 20, 2013 6:30 PM
Miley Cyrus's new album "Bangerz" embodies all aspects of her new image. She states, "I'm not going to do Hannah Montana, but I'll give you an update. She was murdered." Miley Cyrus is doing what many young stars do when they feel the time has come to change how people perceive them. She is dressing and acting in a completely new way that is sexual, bold, and somewhat controversial, but that is getting her the attention that she wants. Miley wants people to notice that she is not a little girl anymore, and her music video for "Wrecking Ball" and performance at the VMA's show just that.

Best Fashion Moments in Super Bowl History

Best Fashion Moments in Super Bowl History | Fashion and The Music Industry | Scoop.it
From Bey to Diana Ross, let's take a trip down memory lane.
Allissa Purkey's insight:

Every year during the super bowl, a performer is chosen to showcase during the halftime. They are chosen by who is considered highly successful in the industry during that year. Many of the performers consider it as an honor and take it as a compliment. These performances are always remembered and featured in mainstream newspapers and media. Lately however, a lot of the build up for the performance consists of their outfits and fashion rather than what they will be performing. Instead of being remembered for their talent, many of the performers try and dress over the top to be remembered for their outfits and not their talent.

Jennifer Hudson Stuns At BET Soul Train Awards

Jennifer Hudson Stuns At BET Soul Train Awards | Fashion and The Music Industry | Scoop.it
Jennifer Lawrence and Jennifer Aniston may have chopped off their locks this week, but Jennifer Hudson was there with a shorter 'do first.
Allissa Purkey's insight:

Jennifer Kate Hudson rose to fame in 2004 as a finalist on American Idol during the third season, coming in seventh place. Although she didn’t win, after acting in Dreamgirls she became a huge part of the industry, even receiving a star on the Hollywood walk of fame this year. However after all of her accomplishments with her singing career she has constantly fought against the weight criticism she received. She managed to lose a lot of weight, however instead of people praising her recent accomplishments with her singing, hundred of articles such as these come out only talking about her weight loss and disregarding her success. Society focused on her fashion and how she looks better when she attends events because she can finally wear dresses and such, taking away from the attention she gets that deals with her success as an artist.

Justin Timberlake Fashion Evolution

Justin Timberlake Fashion Evolution | Fashion and The Music Industry | Scoop.it
Allissa Purkey's insight:

Justin Timberlake is one of the top male artists today. His style revolution started when he was in the popular boyband n*sync and he definitely had some interesting fashion statements. However, as he grew as an artist, his fashion became a lot more sophisticated and classy. This is also an example of how the focus has shifted more to his actual talent rather than his style. The reason for this could be that he is currently an established artist and therefore does not feel the need to change his image for more publicity.

Madonna Bares Her Butt (and Much More) During a Wild Met Gala Night

Madonna Bares Her Butt (and Much More) During a Wild Met Gala Night | Fashion and The Music Industry | Scoop.it
Madonna was the last celebrity on the red carpet at last night's Met Gala in NYC, arriving later than even honorary cochair Beyoncé Knowles. She walked the red carpet with her boyfriend, Brahim Zaibat, who accessorized with two flags.
Allissa Purkey's insight:

Madonna wore this outfit to the MET Ball outfit way beyond her years, even beyond the young stars of our generations years.  This outfit looks like a stripper would wear when working.  She seems to want to make a huge statement that she is still relevant and she is here to stay.

Allissa Purkey's comment, December 20, 2013 5:33 PM
Selena Gomez started out as a young Disney Channel star, and has now grown into her 20-year-old singer self, with a new sexy style. The article describes how Selena used to dress, showing her on the red carpet in a patterned tank, jeans, and cropped vest. This is then compared to a current photo of her on the red carpet in a form-fitting floor-length dress, with a thigh-high slit and cut outs across her chest. Selena is using her new sense of style to further her transformation into a woman. She doesn't want her audience to see her as little teenager anymore, but rather as an adult female singer. Dressing in outfits that express her new attitude and mature personality. All of the cutouts, skin-tight dresses, short hemlines, and deep necklines are all a part of Selena's grown up, sexy and sophisticated style.

MTV VMAs' 55 Most Outrageous Fashions

MTV VMAs' 55 Most Outrageous Fashions | Fashion and The Music Industry | Scoop.it
From Gaga's meat dress to Will.i.am in blackface with plastic hair, look back at 55 of the most daring, bear-all, wacky and way-out looks from the VMAs' 28 year history.
Allissa Purkey's insight:

Music award shows such as the VMA's bring out some of the best and worst fashion choices. While some stars make the best-dressed lists, there have been many stars at the top of the worst-dressed lists with some outrageous fashions. This list however is not exclusive to just women as men too have been guilty of these over-the-top fashion statements. Typically, women in the music industry have felt the need to be bold with their outfits, but men also feel the need to do the same. This shows that regardless of gender, the music industry and media influence music stars to find new and elaborate ways in order to be noticed. The need to make a statement emphasizes how much of our society is based on appearance.

This article discusses Nicki Minaj's fashion inspirations and her bold outfits. The main thing that I took away from this article was when Nicki Minaj spoke about her need to look sexy and how people expect her to dress sexy. She says it is important to her, and this shows in the things that she wears. Cleavage and showing lots of skin both often appear in her attire to awards shows, in music videos, or on the red carpet.

Allissa Purkey's insight:

Society no longer praises musicians simply because of their talent. Music award shows such as the Grammies, which were created to award talent, are now focusing on other things. Some audiences are drawn into watching these awards to rate artist's outfits, however it is suppose to be about their accomplishments and success through out the year. Not only does this blog allow people to criticize their outfits by looking at pictures, however they also allow people to comment and rate whether they like the outfit or not, therefore they reinforce that fashion at these events should be a bigger priority.

Susan Boyle's Makeover for Harper's Bazaar Magazine 2009 - YouTube

Britain's Got Talent runner-up Susan Boyle gets a glam new look for a Harper's Bazaar photo shoot.
Allissa Purkey's insight:

Although Susan Boyle became famous because of her shocking talent as a singer, many people criticized her age and style. As she became more successful, people started to focus on her appearance change rather than her singing. She started receiving a lot of attention from the media because she changed her fashion and started to wear more makeup and such instead of enjoying her as a musician.

'90s Boy Bands vs '90s Girl Groups

'90s Boy Bands vs '90s Girl Groups | Fashion and The Music Industry | Scoop.it
A battle between '90s boy bands like N'Sync and Backstreet Boys and '90s girl groups like Destiny's Child and TLC.
Allissa Purkey's insight:

The 90's were a time where boybands and girl groups flourished. While 90's fashion was interesting to say the least, it definitely influenced both male and female artists. A large part of this fashion style focused on their sex appeal. While women often are portrayed as being sexual objects with their revealing clothing, men were doing the same thing in order to get attention.

Allissa Purkey's insight:

Adam Levine's style is very laid back and he is often seen rocking plain T-shirts. This shows the difference between men and women in music because there are no female artists that could get away with just wearing t-shirts and jeans and not be scrutinized, or even noticed for it.
