大家都看過麥莉的新MV – Mother’s Daughter了嗎?一開始從歌詞來看要理解它的意義其實不難,很快就能get最明確的大主題──女權主義(Feminism),但是MV出來之後,又增加更多有趣的小細節,包含一起邀請入鏡的人都大有來頭。

歌詞

影片中最明顯看得到的例子首先來自歌詞:“Not an Object,” “Sin Is In Your Eyes, “Every woman is a riot,” “Virginity is a social construct,” “Feminist AF.”等等,這些意象就足夠表達女權主義,從古到今女性從外表到內在都存在男性壓迫女性的理由,因此麥莉也直接在歌詞上毫不客氣的讓女權觀念「正常化」。

女性哺乳正常化

女性哺乳的形象常常會讓男性有說嘴的餘地(到底為甚麼小編也想知道),但是麥莉直接表明她就是支持女性哺乳,這可能也包含她支持公眾場合哺乳,因為小嬰兒在公眾場合因為想要喝奶兒大哭大鬧的案件層出不窮,偏偏女性很容易因為大眾眼光而選擇犧牲孩子當下最急迫的生理需求。

正面的身體意象

“I've always been a fighter. Maybe not always in the most productive way, but fighting for myself, a friend or even for a stranger who is being bullied has always been a part of my personality. Fat acceptance is based on the notion that all fat people, regardless of health, deserve respect. And it's a battle that is fought every day by thousands, including myself. Social media's accessibility allows us to peek in on others living their lives, but too often the conversation turns negative when there are fat bodies involved. People just love to leave awful comments on fat folks photos in order to feel superior and I promise you, not one of these commenters actually cares about the health, family, environment or whatever bullshit reason they give for their vile behavior towards a fat person. And really, how in the hell does health matter in the context of someone just posting a photo of themselves feeling happy and confident? (HINT: it doesn't matter, stop pretending like it does) Next time you see a fat person posting pictures of themselves living their life, stop and ask yourself why you wish to spoil their joy. I guarantee that you can't come up with a valid reason that isn't based in your own ego gratification. Stop it and do better! We humans have a lot to learn, but we can start by fighting our personal biases and permitting people of all genders, races, sexualities, sizes, abilities and health levels to live harassment-free lives. Don't fuck with their freedom to feel happy and beautiful right now, not just when society says it’s ok.” – Angelina Duplisea @anactingangel

這個不必多說了,女性的身體長得如何更容易落人口舌,尤其最近不少社會新聞中男性網友總是失焦去注意女性受害者的身材或外表,但不管胖瘦都還是人啊!而且長得如何與個人成就真的沒有太大關係,自己長得甚麼樣子更不是任何人管得著的。

跨性戀人權

身為一個殘疾人士、非裔人士、又是跨性戀者,所有社會上最容易產生的歧視幾乎都會落在Aaron Philip身上,可是麥莉為這些人發聲,甚至是具有這些交集的人。任何人都不應該被放棄正向關注,尤其前陣子在美國馬里蘭一個社區內一連兩個跨性別者遭到殺害,而截止六月底,美國已經有11名非裔跨性別者因為仇恨而犧牲生命,這些悲劇本來都不應該發生,也應該被阻止的。

滑板玩家Lacey Baker的衣服上寫They/them,這對跨性別者來說很重要,也是they作為單數無性別中性詞彙使用的族群,他們也很努力將這個概念推廣到整個英文社會,將一個人用he/she二分是不恰當的。

聲援社運人士

“So pretty much in my every day life I tend to express my freedom through my fashion – it’s like my voice because I don’t like to say too much I like to leave everything open for interpretation. Thankfully i don’t really have to fight for my freedom but for those who do I definitely speak out and continuously rock out for them hoping to inspire the next girl like me. Activism to me is pushing the agenda of staying true to yourself and keeping it G (genuine) – I feel like if I continue to showcase and spread my message/story it’ll reach the masses. Activism is a group effort to keep it simple especially for social change more people should start within before getting involved imo – lots of biased/ skewed beliefs due to social media – start at home! If your words aren’t coming from the heart or a reliable source (not twitter!) who are you helping? Women like me young and old give me the hope to continue the fight for our freedom as dark skin women in the world! #BlackGirlsROCK” – Trydryn Scott

由上而下分別是女權社運人士Paige Fralix、Amazon Ashley、Trydryn Scott,他們時常位女性發聲,並真正投入社會運動,集結他們微小的力量一起帶領社會進行改變。

這句話是烏克蘭激進女權團體Femen的標語:每個女人都是激進份子。

結論

正部MV的意象鮮明,從聲援生理女性,到支持跨性別者、給與正當身體意象、將女性哺乳正當化,與給與社運份子認同,麥莉真的很賣力,而也只有她敢這麼勇於挑戰社會觀感,貼出一系列的「道德刺激」視覺,才有辦法讓流行樂壇如此繽紛。

第六張EP《She Is Coming》整體而言雖然沒有《Can’t Be Tamed》以及《Bangerz》這麼有pop的節奏,但至少意象鮮明,層次也比《Bangerz》單純強調做自己還來得更高、更成熟,接著還要推哪一首小編已經繼續期待了。
