    This was, and wasn't what I was expecting. The first part is autobiographical and really only of interest to devotees of the early 90s Seattle Grunge and Rrriot Girl scene with the history and dynamic of a band that never really made it big and the lead singer's affair with her married video director... There's shades of (no pun intended) 50 Shades of Grey, and asides to consider Madonna's loose trilogy (the author's grouping) of videos, Vogue, Justify My Love, and Erotica.

There's shades of (no pun intended) 50 Shades of Grey, and asides to consider Madonna's loose trilogy (the author's grouping) of videos, Vogue, Justify My Love, and Erotica. The second part seems to be based on the author's thesis and groups music videos into distinct areas based on sex, gender and sexuality... The final part morphs into race and Black Lives Matter then devotes an entire segment just to Beyoncé's Formation video, ending with a return to the biographical and a disappointing pilgrimage to the hotel where Justify My Love was filmed. For a book that takes it's title and starting point from Madonna, there's very little of her here, although the videography section devotes a sizeable portion to her back catalogue, more than any other artist actually discussed in depth in the text...

    This book is a quick read...only reason it took me so long is that I was travelling and I like my books on my kindle. This book reads like a bit of a college text book regarding gender norms and sociological norms through music video....and spans from the inception of video through now. When I first started reading it, it was almost autobiographical of the author and then it went into the gender norms and such around multiple music videos. The book goes through the gender norms and how artists crus This book is a quick read...only reason it took me so long is that I was travelling and I like my books on my kindle. This book reads like a bit of a college text book regarding gender norms and sociological norms through music video....and spans from the inception of video through now. When I first started reading it, it was almost autobiographical of the author and then it went into the gender norms and such around multiple music videos. The book goes through the gender norms and how artists crush the norms regarding sex as well as discussing artists with LGBTQ messages as well as persons of color. The first part of the book I had a really hard time getting into because it was the author's story, but once it started talking about the music videos I really enjoyed it.

    A little uneven in terms of structure, but compulsively readable and full of rich analyses of gender, sexuality and race in music videos.

    Typically, I would find this subject matter interesting but the structure of this book was so poorly executed it was a slog to get through.
