LL Cool J Is Not In Love With Strippers
Rapper LL Cool J is urging his peers to stop degrading women in their music videos, because he fears they are setting a bad example to the younger generation. The rap star, whose latest video Control Myself features a scantily-clad Jennifer Lopez, insists women can look sexy and classy in bikinis – but shouldn’t be portrayed as prostitutes and strippers.
He says, “I think that there’s more room in the videos for women to be portrayed in a better way, like, classy. I don’t mean that they can’t be beautiful, can’t wear swimsuits, can’t wear bikinis. “I don’t think that every woman has to be a stripper in every video. “When you have three daughters and you’re sitting there watching the video channel and every girl that’s on there is like a stripper…. I don’t think that we have to tell them that this is all there is for you to do in order for you to make it.” (source)
