Can’t believe she had to openly talk about this all the time. No wonder she’s fucked up.
i’m telling you guys… read that rolling stone article “the tragedy of britney spears”
“…she is intelligent enough to understand what the world wanted of her: that she was created as a virgin to be deflowered before us, for our amusement and titillation. She is not ashamed of her new persona — she wants us to know what we did to her.”
The bolded part. Oh my god the bolded part.
That smile is an angry smile.
Did not imagine my day would begin with me crying over Brittany Spears.
Britney Spears is important to me.
Just look at the way she was brought onto the pop scene: naughty schoolgirl, skin-tight spandex, lots of implied naughtiness, but sugar-coated with “but she’s a virgin”.
She was being marketed as a living fantasy: good but naughty, chaste but knowledgeable, heart-broken but looking for someone and that someone could be you, yes you, even you, you creepy middle-aged man asking about her sex-life.
She and Christina Aguilera were in the same boat, unleashed on the world at the same time, but Britney’s manager didn’t break as easily as Christina. Christina went off and changed her image a billion times. Britney didn’t get that opportunity.
