Chlöe Bailey Defends ‘So Much Skin’ Criticism In ‘Have Mercy’ Video



Bailey, 23, just dropped her debut single “Have Mercy.”
The video has been met with some criticism among
fans have questioned her outfit choices and her decision to show “so much skin.”
Others criticised the artist, “Have mercy is just another of a looooong list of example of Black women in pop music today being hypersexualized; from their clothes, to the lyrics, to the choreography,”

Bailey responded
"Because I can. It’s my body, and I’m so proud of it, and I hope you’re proud of yours too. Men can glorify ass in their videos, I want to do it with this in a really artful, fun, beautiful way. And I think it’s so great how women can claim ownership of their bodies and not let the world do it. We get to do it in the way that we want to, and it was really fun! I felt really pretty on the shoot days, and I look back, and I’m like, ‘that’s not the same person right here,’ but it was fun in the moment.”
