Muslim Hipsters #MIPSTERZ - Music Video For A Jay-Z Song. Why Was It So Controversial?

The dominant narrative in American media often reduces Muslim women — particularly those who wear hijab — to voiceless subjects of oppression. So it's refreshing to take a break from one-dimensional characterizations and see Muslim women portrayed by, you know, actual Muslim women for a change.
This music video caused quite a stir when it was first released.

LWDLIK - Okay so I can see the tight leggings may have a few a little displeased. But I found the video very uplifting, bold, brave and inspirational. WTG ladies. It's even opened my mind up a whole load. I'm guilty of wondering why some Muslim ladies wear figure hugging clothes and full make-up but having seen this video I'm thinking why not? Welcome to the 21st century ladies.
