Here's a song by a blues singer that cares about a persons inner qualities--not just looks and other externals:

"I'm leaving here early in the morning, peoples, I'm about to go out of my mind,
I'm going to find me some kind of companion, even if she's deaf, dumb, crippled and blind."

Wendy Williams is inconsistent. In this song she seems to treat men as objects:




But in this one, she wants love and doesn't care about material things:

Gimmie, gimmie, gimmie some good times
Gimmie, gimmie, gimmie some pain
No matter how ugly you are
You know to me it all looks the same
