So Britney Spears shaved her head in public. She tatooed herself in public. She exposed herself without panties in public. And the Media is ga ga over the falling of a great American Icon. Yet it is the creation of the Icon that is the hysteria, not the falling of one ….
What is it about societies that need to create Icon. How did a 18 year old girl become an icon anyway ?
The truth is that Britney’s iconic creation was a media controlled event. The Corporations need to create stars and icons to sell songs, video’s and other paraphrenalia to the young immature minds. They got them to worship Britney Spears. But as always, Britney became irrelavent as new acts came into being. So a princess was suddenly stripped of her glory, her shine. She was emerging into a living, breathing human being that rebelled against a fake iconism that was imposed upon her. And the public hate the humanization of an icon. Britney is merely doing what girls do when they are much younger. It is more accentuated because she left it so late. And the media revell as much in that hate as they did in the worship.
Maddona must be made of steel. It is exactly what she must have faced, and yet she beat the coorporations and refused to allow the Media to damn her.
