The quick selection tool-lets you quickly paint a selection using an adjustable (which can be made bigger and smaller) round brush tip. It also lets you select areas of similar tone and colour and change it.The Quick Selection Tool works more like a brush, allowing us to select areas simply by "painting" over them




This isn't really finished and you don't really explain how you perform the task here.

T: Please finish this task fully explaining how you use the tool using step by step images.

In many rap videos women have no identity except as sexual playthings and "eye candy"

They have woman in videos to get more views an example of this is candy shop where there is loads of woman in short clothes around the house.

These images do provide pleasures to some viewers. But the concern is that men may internalise the notion that women are nothing more than sexual objects waiting to be used.

The videos provide pleasure because all the woman are in bikinis/short clothes an example of this is the thing song where woman are dancing in thongs on the beac

These sorts of images are not unique to hip hop. Objectified female bodies are everywhere. They appear throughout our culture in films, advertisements, television programmes etc. However, within music videos, this is virtually the ONLY vision of women available.

These images are shown in other types of media like magazines, films, advertisements, programmes and television. However music videos are the only type were women are presented in a way were they are used as a sexual object and not as a normal person




You have a number of points here and have chosen a sound example, but you don't really have any specific examples to back up your points made.

T: Find multiple specific examples and apply them to your chosen videos to help you fully explain and back up your points.

Pink-Stupid Girls


  • Our powerpoint was good because we answered all the questions correctly.
  • The images on the slides where good because it showed what was happening.
  • Lastly i think our presentation layout was good this let them see it easier.


  • Our powerpoint  could of had the music video in the background playing while we where reading the answers out. 
  • Also our answers could of been longer and more detailed this would help the audience understand more.
  •  Lastly I think that we could of answered the questions more clearly.

50 Cent - Candy Shop

I disagree with the following statements because hip hop doesn't present a very rigid and narrow version of manhood - one that suggests that to be a real man you must be strong and tough, you must have a lot of women and money, you must always be in control, and you must always dominate women and other men. A Way of showing this is untrue is that 50 cent might go home and take off all his big coats and jewelry to put on fluffy slippers and casual clothes. Also not all rappers/hip hop artists have load of money,cars,woman,jewelry and houses this is a stereotype of a rapper/hip hop artist. In rapping most people think that it all about money,woman and jewellery but most of it I about what has happened to them in their life's. 
The connotation of a rapper is that  the sort of clothes that he is wearing relates him to a rapper but the denotation of a rapper is that the men always wear big coats and jewelry and the woman wear short clothes and jewelry as well. 
The atmosphere of the 50 cent-candy shop video is slow and in the video all you see is cars,expensive houses,woman in short clothes and 50 cent in expensive clothes and big jackets. The clothes in the video are all mainly short on the woman and on 50 cent he wears expensive chains and rings and he also wears big coats and shoes. In the video he uses hand gestures to make him look tough/hard.In a part of the video he shows his muscles/masculinity.In a part of the video the women put on red track suit and do a dance routine to show that 50 Cent and the women own the whole house
