Britney Spears released her “Make Me” video on Friday (Aug. 5), featuring shirtless men parading around the pop princess just to get the chance to be in her video (mission accomplished!). “Make Me” is the latest video to turn the tables on the typical video vixen, opting for the video viper instead.
Spears is no stranger to the move, given the shirtless male backup dancers in her Las Vegas residency, and she’s not alone either. Fellow leading ladies Lady Gaga, Fifth Harmony, Shania Twain and Olivia Newton-John have all paraded beefy, stripped-down men around in their music videos. Hell, Jennifer Lopez even made the gender swap the whole plot of her “I Luh Ya Papi” video (see below).
In honor of Britney’s boy toys, here are 17 times men were objectified in music videos.
