Music Videos..?? what do you all think of them?

Hi friends, this will be shorter than usual, because it's almost midnight and i need to get my beauty rest soon =)) but i just wanted to share what i think of music videos..They(the music videos) pollute our minds, our souls, our hearts..if we are not careful we could get corrupted. Not all are bad videos..there are a few and far in between that are sweet and bring God glory! I'll talk about those later..first let's start with Womanizer by Britney Spears. I was always a fan of Britney Spears, i as a young girl when i was 19 or 20 loved Her first song Baby One More time, i related to her songs and i thought she was a girl next door type..but last year a lot of things changed for her..i find her life was very turbelent full of sadness, heartbreak of her giving full custody to Kevin of her 2 boys, her cutting her hair bald, hitting papparazi with umbrella, being hospitalized at twice..Her life was such turmoil, I prayed for that girl hard..I really DID...I prayed that someone like God and her family would turn her life around..And i thought for a little while this summer that this girl was Back to normal..and she was..she was on a comedy show, got great ratings, then gave dancing lessons to little girls, got MTV music awards..but now i'm sad to say that my RESPECT is gone for her. Because of Womanizer. It first made me think "Wow this video is HOT" But then i had to slap myself silly! And repent for even thinking that. Because my flesh is weak but the spirit is very strong.

So after seeing it I have to say i'm disgusted with the video to say the least. It may be considered "hot" in this society or in this world..BUT i know as a Christian that it was lewd, carnal, and just plain too much nudity. She was virtually naked 50% of the time in the video, other times she was dressed but in very provocative garments. I mean C'MON what are the girl-singers think nowaredays that they have to lower themselves on every level just to get attention and make $$ i feel that it's sad what this society has come to..where celebrities think that they have to wear very little clothes and all make up and starve themselves for popularity...SO sad!!!

to tell the truth i'd rather be my size 18-20 then a 4 or a 2 or size 0.

they even got a size Double 0 now!! can you believe it???

i find it all so sad.



Back to videos..don't watch Womanizer video, unless you want to see for yourself what i'm talking about..BUT if you are under 21 don't even watch please.



BUT there is a ray of hope that i found today in 1 girl with a great voice. I always liked her music, but after watching a few of her videos today ..I have to honestly say that she outshines the rest in hollywood community..Her and our Christian singers rock!! =))

her name is Taylor Swift. Her voice is so wonderful and pretty..and i can relate to a lot of what she sings..=))

MY favorite videos of her are "Love Story" and "I'm only me when i'm with you"

My fave honestly is Love Story..the setting is back in the 1800's and it's similar to Romeo and Juliet story very beautifully done, the costumes are amazing and her voice is just great!

about the "I'm only me when i'm with you"

It's a really cute video, she has a lot of snippets of still life and of different momments with friends, i do have to warn that she does wear a bikini suit twice...but all in all the video is beautiful and her voice is great! Even though she does wear a bikini...this video is a lot more modest than Britney's, Janet Jackson's, Madonna's and Mariah Carey's videos.

I think Taylor Swift is a great artist and she is a good role model to young girls, I just hope and pray that she stays the same in the future!!

I think i'll get her CD's...=))



well i better go this has gotten a lot longer than i first intended..sorry this was so long my bloggers!!



Verses for the day--



John 3:16---



16"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.



2 Samuel 7:22---



“How great you are, O Sovereign LORD! There is no one like you, and there is no God but you, as we have heard with our own ears.”



All right that's all dear bloggers..you all have a great night!

take care!!!

Lots of blessings and hugs to all!

Talk soon!

Hello Jane!
I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate you visiting my blog home! I have not been able to read much of your blog yet, as we(my family and I) have been very busy, but would like to find the time to come and visit awhile! As for you current post that I am commenting on--I would have to say-as a whole staying away from worldly music that does not lift up the name of Jesus Christ is probably the safest way for a True Christ follower to go! At least that is what the Lord has told me. We are to live in this world but not be like the world... Anyway! God bless you!
Sincerely in Jesus Christ,
Sarah T

i haven't seen the britney spears or taylor swift videos... i am too cheap for cable or satellite. i enjoy TVU... i don't know if you've heard of it or seen it. you can get it online and play it through your media player. i volunteer at a teen center and we hook up the laptop to a big screen TV and play Christian music videos for the kids who come in. we've actually had some of the artists come play shows (like john reuben, if you've heard of him?) and the kids are thrilled because they have seen him on TV. definitely a better alternative to the secular scene!!!
