Russell Brand suffers backlash for a lengthy video he posted on YouTube, commenting on the controversial new clip for Cardi B-Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” collab.The crux of Brand’s discussion: whether the “WAP” video is a “feminist masterpiece” or outright porn.

“If the tropes of male hip hop are about the power of male sexuality… and then the female video is some kind of celebration of sexual potency… it is an emulation of a model that already exists and is being established by men. “, did he declare.

Seen in this light, Brand added, the “WAP” video is an example of female rap artists who must “achieve equality by aspiring to and reproducing the values ​​established by men…. Is it equality if the pattern has already been established by a formal dominator? The answer is no. ”

The brand continued: “I wouldn’t be so reductive and simplistic to say that women who celebrate their bodies using an aesthetic traditionally associated with the male gaze mean that there is no way these tools can be used as a vehicle for liberation. But I’m saying, in a way, it’s still the same metric – it’s still the same aesthetic, it’s still the same values, it’s still the same ideals. It is still ultimately a kind of capitalist objectification and commodification, in this case, of woman.
