This fierce dance performance was inspired by the Video Vixens: provocative female models that appeared in hip-hop videos on MTV in the late 1990s. Although they danced scantily dressed to men’s music, they were hyper-sensual, strong and independent. The influence they exercised could be great: often, the Vixens determined the aesthetic of these videos and so the popularity of the artist. 

What would such a black hip-hop honey look like today? JEZEBEL is a deconstruction of the controversial stereotype of the Vixen.
