UPDATE: CBS just taped the 2012 Victoria's Secret fashion show. Watch Justin Bieber's performance here:
The previously taped 2012 Victoria's Secret fashion show will be aired tonight at 10:00 p.m. by CBS amid the event's recurrent controversies surrounding sexual objectification.
From PolicyMic's own Marni Chan:
"[...] the Victoria’s Secret branding is about angels. The Madonna-whore complex is the most banal of sexual complexes, where, as Freud describes, women must exist either as saints, or debased prostitutes, and serves the mixed-message, middlebrow ad campaign well."
And, though this is a fashion show typically associated with moms (and their dads), this year millions of teenage daughters will have an excuse to tune in.
The 2012 Victoria's Secret fashion show entertainment will be in charge of ubiquitous teen idol Justin Bieber who — along with Rihanna and Bruno Mars — were taped signing and dancing their latest hits (Bieb's 'As Long as You Love Me,' Rihanna's 'S&M'? and Mars wildly popular 'Locked Out of Heaven') while the VS 'angels' make their way through the runaway.
