What two conventions have i used and why?
i have used a model and celeb on my magazine cover because the target audience is tennage girls and some of them look up to models and celebritys. the tone of my magazine is aspirational because i have used certain headlines to make it aspirantional like a life style coach. 

What are the effects of my layout, typography, colour choice and language choice.
my magazine cover is asymetrical this suggest it is not orderd and chaotic this is asoteated with young pepole.i used bright pinks to suit the target audience. The font i used was called lips i choose to use this font because it looked like lipstick it is a san serif font which , i used a celebrity and put her in the middle shot to show that evrything revolves around her,  and teenage girls should look up to her.

What issues of representation have i presented 


Jack this needs to be finished please.  You must be specific in your answers and these answers must explain the effects on the audience. 

You must talk about any issues that there are with the representation you have presented. Are all women/men like that? Do all teenage girls relate to those stories?

Jason Derulo - "Talk Dirty" feat. 2 Chainz (Official HD Music Video)     
 the girls in this video come across as sexual and of a low status as they are ornamental and a just for show but in essence not actually of any importance.

As you can clearly see the girls are coming across very sexual and this is portrayed negatively due to the touching and holding of private areas.

how are women presented in hip hop 
women in hiphop our repersented that they all have big boobs and big bums and ware as little clothing as possible and dance in a sexual way eg. miley cyrus twerking in we carnt stop.
In rap videos women are presented as nobodies and just sexual playthings or eye candy. Women are presented in a way that they aren't people you would get to know but people you would use for sex. Due to this use of eye candy the video captures a lot more male viewers as they are looking to see the women dancing in bikinis or even half dressed. Women are also presented as being sexually attractive for example in candy shop (by 50 cent) one of the women are seducing 50 cent and wearing hardly any clothes while he is wearing big coats/jackets while leaning on his expensive car with his mansion in the background. These rap videos give young men the impression that it is ok to treat women like they are in the videos and use them for sex.

These images are shown in numerous other types of media like magazines, films, advertisements and television. However music videos are the only type were women are presented in a way that there only used as sexual objects.




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

I do not agree with the way in hiphop videos how they represent a "man" is that they should ware loads of Jewellery and ware big puffer jackets and ware very expensive clothes and really fast so called super cars and have a lot of women dancing round them kind of making them look like a pimp.
 In 50 cents video candy shop   he is surround by girls which are half naked as a sign that he owns them and girls want to be with him, they are half naked to show that girls want him and he can do what he wants with them. He shows off his money by what he is wearing, such as his fur coat, diamond necklaces, rings and flash watches, the video is also shown in a big house. He is also sitting on an expensive car, showing he can waste money as he is not driving the car. In my opinion is that 50 cent is trying to look like a pimp In the video and I do not agree with it.  
the language that 50 cent  uses in his song candy shop show that the girls are controlled by him and that he gets pleasures from it "ill let you lick my lolly pop." The idea of videos such as 50 cents are to try and show that women should have perfect bodies and go for men with money, which is incorrect, in the real world women go for men with class, looks or personallity instead of men trying to look hard and rough. 
Looking like this dose not make you a man and acting like this to women is nieve because in the Video the woman our dancing very surductively and they our there like there just there to make 50 cent look big and he only use for women is sexy when it's not there as equal as men, but in many hip hop videos all men look to have more power over women
