Taffy Brodesser-Akner on kirjoittanut superpitkän artikkelin, jossa hän ruotii Britneyn uraa ja nostaa hänet uudeksi feministi-ikoniksi. Slate.com jatkaa asian pohtimista kriittisemmin. Alla oleva pätkä Slaten artikkelista.
Brodesser-Akner argues that Britney is now “a feminist role model for single working mothers here and everywhere” because she simply fulfills her duties as an adult human. Here’s Brodesser-Akner describing Britney’s song “Work Bitch” as a personal anthem:
Its message is that nothing comes easily, that you can’t keep your kids in private school and your community gated and your ex-husband in his nation-building ambitions without work. Britney isn’t the fuck-up we decided she was during a relatively short but well-publicized period of her life. She drops off her kids and picks them up from school just about every day. She shows up on time, hits every mark, is polite and soft-spoken. She rehearses five or six hours every day, saying, ‘Let’s run through it one more time.’ Britney works.
