Country music singer Julianne Hough’s music video for “Is That So Wrong” was banned over the weekend by Country Music Television (and removed from YouTube) because it was deemed too sexy. The video featured Julianne Hough disrobing to her underwear, rolling around in a playful manner on an empty bed.
But Hough’s “Is That So Wrong” video, compared to other sexy videos by singers such as Ciara, Beyonce, and Keri Hilson, plays like an episode of “Sesame Street.” This year, Ciara got into hot water with her music video “Ride,” while Beyonce’s commercial for her perfume “Heat” was banned in the daytime by the Brits.
And then there’s Keri Hilson, who created (and unabashedly backed) the raunchy music video for her single “The Way You Love Me.”
So what do you make of the reception to Julianne Hough’s music video? Are country music fans just far more conservative than R&B music heads? Does Country Music Television simply have higher standards than that of BET or MTV? Is it somehow a race issue?
Check out Julianne Hough’s music video and voice your thoughts below.
