In the music industry, the female vocalist is, in most cases, an objectified ‘trained pussy’ that is supposed to directly transmit sex. Though using her voice as a professional tool, she does not have the possibility to give a voice to her own ideas and experiences, neither using voice nor text.
This attitude clearly demonstrates the attitude towards women in mass culture as a whole. For the most part, even if a woman is a voice bearer, she is not entitled to her own voice.
