Are females presented voyeuristically?

  • 11. ‘ Starlight’ <ul><li>The music video generally has a road trip narrative but focuses a lot on the band members. </li></ul><ul><li>This could be because this is their 2 nd single however, they may still be trying to get familiar with their audience. </li></ul>Any further comments?
