When Doves Cry

Race, class, age, and ability are all represented in this music video. Prince is a male however in this video and many others he dresses ina feminine manner. Despite that, he is seen with different women love interests in this video. Sexuality in this video is presented in the relationship depicted and the problems that the relationship is facing. Beauty norms are bent in this video. Prince had a style of his own, much of which was not popular in the mainstream. I don’t think that Prince saw anything as too taboo to sing about or do. He wore pants that showed his butt regularly. He addresses sex and reflects on his own personal issues in a relationship in this song.
