MTV Arabia


MTV has just launched MTV Arabia, which hopes to bring “Western culture” to the area and will focus on hip hop and user-based activities. The MTV execs are aware that some of the US music videos would be risque (although how often do you see music on MTV anymore), so MTV Arabia will focus on both international and Arab artists, with a roughly 60%-40% split of international to Arabic music. Now, I looked at this MTV Arabia website, and not only will there be shows like TRL and Punk*D, but they’ll also show Andy Dick‘s The Assistant and Jennifer Lopezs Dancelife. If they become the faces of Western culture, I will fear for us even more. Also, they have “social campaigns”. Just putting it out there.
