Constructing Gender: Is it merely fashion or fashionable behavior?

Androgyny is the combination of masculine and feminine characteristics. Sexual ambiguity may be found in fashion, gender identity, sexual identity, or sexual lifestyle. It can also refer to biological intersex physicality, especially with regard to plant and human sexuality.[1]    en.wikipedia.org

70 Glam/Glitter Rock was the gayest end of the leather metal spectrum of hyper masculinity

Elvis Presley was the original rock n roll leather lad, 68 comeback

Rick Springfield, unlike the other long haired pretty boys, lost his locks and his accent and reinvented himself on daytime television and relaunched his pop rock career by copying the Lurid Lewd Elvis’ 50s stagewear in pastels:

The idea of “Music Videos” had been around a while in the 1970s club scenes – putting the inside the industry promos onto the club circuit…

MTV was born out of The Monkees, eh?

Duran Duran raised the bar and turned music video into epic movies compared to the “concert/staged” vs literal lyric short film.

MTV and Music Video tv shows replaced or ran after skit comedy shows to bring people into the home or club at home or the 80s is when video replaced the radio star

and this video was UNBEATABLE –

it had to be retired from weekly video contest call in shows because people would not stop voting it for!

Olivia Newton-John didn’t tour for her monster album Physical, instead opting for a 1 hour tv special – pre-taped her narrating through the music videos, each one a short film.

Her early tv specials usually had guests with skits and musical numbers.

With this, she proved the power of the music video and albums and tours became totally disconnected.
