Several of Michael Jackson's videos show the unmistakable influence of the dance sequences in classic Hollywood musicals, including the landmark "Thriller" and the Martin Scorsese-directed "Bad", which was influenced by the stylised dance "fights" in the film version of West Side Story.Some music videos blend different styles, such as animation, music, and live action.Combining these styles and techniques has become more popular because of the variation it presents to the audience.Given our immigrant roots, most Asian girls endure a latent insecurity about everything from our boobs to our patriotism (both things that are just slightly there).
