Mick Jagger’s Favorite But Sexist Music Video Of Mötley Crüe
Mötley Crüe released one of their iconic albums entitled ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ on May 15, 1987. The album was certified platinum by being sold millions of copies worldwide and hitting the charts. Its tracks, such as ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ and ‘You’re All I Need,’ became one of the most popular Mötley Crüe songs of all time.
Along with the song itself, the ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ music video also drew great attention from both their fans and other musicians, like Mick Jagger, due to its bold scenes full of sexual imagery. The music video was set in a strip club and consisted of the band members’ performances in the middle of a strip show.
What Did Mick Jagger Think About Mötley Crüe’s ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’?
In one of his previous interviews, Mick Jagger listed his favorite music videos and explained the features he liked about them. Mötley Crüe’s ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ was also on his list, which Jagger defined as a great example of a modern city, even though many people have described it as sexist.
Jagger drew attention to the music video, discussing both strippers’ and Mötley Crüe members’ performances. He added that it is one of the rare clips that people can watch on TV without censorship and get to see what happens at strip clubs.
Mick Jagger shared his ideas about the song, saying:
“That’s why I chose it. It’s great. It’s a great example of a city. It’s a different representative, but this is the best, or worst, sexist ‘girls on the pole’ strip show. The nearest thing you get to see on MTV as a strip show with the generic metal band playing and wiggling their mouths. So I thought this is it as far as I’m concerned.”
Mick Jagger praised Mötley Crüe’s ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ music video by saying, ‘this is it.’ He highlighted that it became one of his favorites with its boldly combining strippers and the iconic metal band, although he agreed with the host who described it as a sexist portrayal of women.
