Jasmine V's video for 'Didn't Mean It' is jarring since it is a realistic and often difficult-to-watch depiction of domestic violence in which the singer is slapped and dragged around a room by her boyfriend. It's like a PSA for abuse issues. Turns out Jasmine V has firsthand experience with this prevalent social issue, since she was in an abusive relationship for a year.
In the beginning of Jasmine V's video for 'Didn't Mean It,' just as we were shown in the teaser clip, she answers the door and is dragged by her hair, kicking and screaming, into the next room, where she screams and is beaten. It's a really jolting and jarring way to start a video, but it's also an extremely effective way to make a point about a serious social issue.
Music videos are usually fun and fluffy and mindless entertainment. But on Wednesday, July 18, Jasmine V will premiere the clip from her new single, 'Didn't Mean It' -- and thanks to a buzzy preview making the rounds, we know it will be anything but "fun."
Unless, of course, you're sick enough to use that word to describe domestic violence.
