I’m not sure why, but I’ve been pondering this question for a while, and I thought I’d throw it over to the class. Do you think that men and women in music are held to different standards of physical attractiveness? Why and how? I was thinking of male artists that I like, but that are not traditionally handsome, and racking my brain to think of a female counterpart. I read that Lady Gaga is rebelling against the idea that she’s not thin enough or pretty enough (or so she was told) but she’s plenty pretty and thin, and frequently quite naked. I’m sure there are musicians of both sexes that have “made it” because they looked good, but does this happen more frequently for women?
