Must write a 3-4 page essay on any music video. I choose scars to your beautiful by Alessia Cara. Choose a music video that you are interested in and perform a rhetorical analysis (ethos, pathos, and logos) on it. What makes the music video credible (ethos)? Are there other well-known musicians or celebrities in the video? What emotions (pathos) are shown/portrayed within the video? Do the lyrics match up well with the music video (logos)? Does it make sense? Why or why not? We probably have all seen music videos that make no sense at all or dont really relate to the lyrics very well. For logos, you could talk about what you might change if you were the director in order to reach a larger audience. Since this paper will run 3-4 pages, make sure you choose a music video you are able to analyze in great detail.
