#WAP: Russell Brand Questions “Values” & “Objectification” Of Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion’s Steamy Video

Published: Saturday 15th Aug 2020 by Sam

Like the 90 million who’ve watched Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion‘s ‘WAP’ video, Russell Brand admits to being “spellbound” by the “power of female sensuality and sexuality’ the racy visual.

However, the actor/activist has pondered aloud whether the clip is progressive or whether it feeds the objectification that fuels inequality.

Full story below…

In a YouTube “review,” Brand said:

“From a political perspective, I don’t know that that demonstrates progress because gender and sex aside, what are the values that we are collectively aspiring to?

Objectification of the other, objectification of the self, is objectification something that we’re aspiring to sexuality and sensuality as commodity? I think that in a sense we are not ambitious enough about what we are aspiring to culturally.” 

He went on to add:

“I wouldn’t be so reductive and simplistic to say that women celebrating their bodies using an aesthetic that’s conventionally been associated with the male gaze means it’s impossible that these tools could be used as a vehicle for liberation.  

But I am saying that in a sense 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’s still ultimately a sort of capitalist objectification and commodification of, in this case, the female.

I am not suggesting that they aren’t powerful auteurs and powerful creators, I’m saying that we ought to be aspiring to an entirely different set of values, not who has the power within an established set of values.”

His words come after CeeLo Green echoed similar sentiments.

With that, what are…

    These women are just whores who are trying to pass of their whoreness as being pro-women and feminism. It’s BS. I feel sorry for this generation and the ones coming after them if these are their role models.

      I agree.

    I don’t think he’s trying to tell them what to do with their bodies. He’s trying to figure out the point of it all. If a man decided to put a bunch of half naked women on stage or screen, everyone would say the man is objectifying women, but when women do it to themselves, it’s not objectification? Make it make sense.

    At the end of the day, the only thing they’re accomplishing is making a man sexually aroused. Nothing else. This is not doing anything to change how people view women or feminism.

      Why you on here making SENSE? Some people are too ready to attack before looking at the bigger picture. You did. Applause.

      Naked women, bending over, showing everything, holding up their everything for men to penetrate is NOT FOR WOMEN. It is meant for men and the “male gaze.” Where are the naked men, strokin’ and slidin’? Nowhere.

    • Tori August 15, 2020

      A bunch of men always put women on stage or screen, half naked, no ones says a damn thing. When women do it to themselves, it’s a world ending crisis. Thats the problem, that has always been the problem. Why is it okay for a man to do it to a woman but not for a woman to do it to themselves ? “Where are the naked men, strokin’ and slidin’?” EVERY DAMN WHERE! Rapper make straight out p***, s** toys, glorified “leaked” nudes and videos. If this is what a woman does, LET HER! Its not like they’re selling their actual bodies. They’re selling a marketable image to those buying it, and it’s not just Cardi and Meg, the other females just aren’t getting this type of press.

      • chilepleaseee August 15, 2020


        No ones saying they can’t do it. The problem is every time someone questions them on it, they say they’re doing it in the name of feminism or so women can move forward. That’s a lie. They need to just say they like selling their vag and making men excited and call it a day.

  5. SuxMyCockiness August 15, 2020

    Oh please 🙄 CeeLo, a man who said it was okay to drug women and Russell brand an admitted s** addict who cheated all over Katy Perry both criticizing women..? You guys don’t care about women, you want to keep them complacent to the ways of the past.

    The fact yall branded this hmm in Kelly’s words “good for nothing type of brother” an activist pisses me off. This scumbag leech needs to be quiet

  7. tyty August 15, 2020

    Sexuality that isn’t through the male gaze is problematic? Y’all cant take that women are acting masculine with their sexuality.

    • Ling Ling Sauce💋💦💦 August 15, 2020

      Lil kim answered u “ If a guy have three girls then he’s the man
      He can even give her some head, then s:ex her raw
      If a girl do the same, then she’s a wh:ore”

  8. Bee August 15, 2020

    First wear a T-Shirt your size. Take a shower bro because you looking smelly.

  9. Section8DaGreat August 15, 2020

    What rock this sea creature crawled out from? Why people acting like this is the most raunchy video that came out in the last 5 years? Why speak on this and not the fact that every other artist is promoting Only Fans accounts?

  10. #WAP August 15, 2020

    Katy revealed Russell is a shrimp d_ick who can’t handle a woman being successful. F_uck him. He’s looking for relevancy. It’s not 2009…we don’t care what TF you have to say

  11. Meme August 15, 2020

    Did he questioned values and objectification when Madonna and Britney was doing the same? Let’s me guess, no right? Get the hello out of here. It’s only a problem when black girls do it.

    • Ling Ling Sauce💋💦💦 August 15, 2020

      Oh no hunny. Don’t ever coming for Madonna & Britney. Not today! So what even they kissed in VMA. Did they sing about WAP in me against the music video?? Did they twerking or acting like a desperate cheap w:h:ore in the video????? The answer is No, not everything is about race, is about what they do or how far/ how desperate did they go.

      • ERIC August 15, 2020

        In all fairness, Britney’s Onyx Hotel tour had a segment with content very similar to WAP. However, Russell is speaking in general terms that can be applied to all women. It’s just an opportune time to talk about the subject of feminism since the WAP video is quickly and easily accessible to consumers of all ages. We should be worried if people WEREN’T discussing the implications of WAP.

    • chilepleaseee August 15, 2020

      Madonna has actually gotten a ton of flack for being over sexual. Do your research.

      • Lmfao_Hoe August 15, 2020

        Especially when she released Like A Virgin. If we truly look back with creditable research we see Madonna has always been a risk taker these girls have yet or even remotely come close to her impact thus opening a lane and doors for today

  12. Lou-Andrew Rodriguez August 15, 2020

    It’s true though. The song is so disgusting the music video is the clean version. Disappointed in Megan for grabbing this bag.

  13. Dc August 15, 2020

    This song is a movement creating a lot of talk around the world bravo cardi n meg 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

  14. Pat August 15, 2020

    All this old folk hate will only make generation z like it more. Congrats Cardi. Ur they’re current music queen

  15. Biancacook August 15, 2020

    its only a problem cuz women doing it themselves and now its so vile. naw at the end of the day once a woman is in control of herself it becomes a problem because we’re supposed to be their toys. now the chicks taking over the game thats the problem. women were having a hard time breaking thru in the rap game cuz most men not bout to listen to what women gotta say now the women out doin them. i just wanna know why nobody supports the chicks that dont sell s**

  16. Neon August 15, 2020

    I really like Russell – he’s been through the mill and has worked really hard over the years to clean up his act. He is just opening up the discussion about equality in 2020, following movements like #MeToo which came about as a result of years of women being nullified and objectified by the same men that WAP aspires to speak to. He didn’t diminish or question their worth, if anything, he was seeking to do the opposite.

    People can express themselves anyway they like. If there was more sexual freedom there would be less judgement. Live and let live! S** is normal!!
