Sarah Blasko goes Barbie

I am ambivalent, and then some, when it comes to Sarah Blaskos latest music video. The nipple and sex-less portrait in All of me might be viewed as brave by some, but I find it too sleek, too Barbie, too nothing of essence. Do you see a freckle, a stretch mark, a single stray hair, or a scar of any sort? Everything that is her has been polished away – so Sarah Blasko, when you say “and i’ll give all of me”, and when you ask “can you love all you see?”, the answer is no – because you are hiding behind an empty shell, where there’s nothing to see & nothing to love.
