When you consider that Duran Duran's core audience is women, do you think they send the wrong message by objectifying women so blatantly in their music videos all the time? Like they did in their latest videos for "Falling Down" and "Girl Panic"?

To me, its a part of their image and who they are. For the most part, I find they treat topics like sex in their songs with respect and beauty.

Wow, iteresting conversation. I always felt their videos were some of the most sexist things on MTV. Especially "Girls on Film", "Rio" and "Electric Barberella". It is worrysome that these guys always appealed to women and these women feel as though they have to crawl around the jungle in barely there clothes, or rub ice cubes on their breasts, or lie around naked while someone splashes paint on them in order to garner Duran Duran's love. I do like Duran Duran, but why is it that Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and all these female artists get slammed for being sexy, when Duran Duran portrays women as sex objects in all of their videos and nobody says anything.
