MUSIC VIDEO Jailhouse Pop: Sent down for short skirt

Whilst in the UK a largely pliant music industry meekly embraces government proposals to enforce age ratings on music videos, elsewhere rather more draconian measures are taken.

Whilst noting the need to be cautious over applying 'Western values' (a contentious notion in itself) to other cultural contexts, this Ugandan example is rather shocking. Though let's also not forget the history of western, especially UK/US censorship of music videos - read Nurzum's Parental Advisory: Music Censorship in America (2008) for an entertaining account of the culture wars that continue to rumble on.
