Britney: Her infamous mommy mistakes, chewing gum in an interview.

I pay attention to Britney Spears as if it was only Britney that the problem of misogyny would involve but sadly the problem is huge and goes on as an unnoticed light issue unchanged because why bother to change something that clearly works. Female celebrities are the tip of an iceberg, if you allow the worn-out phrase, it still works though, the phrase. It is all women who are under microscope whether they are good mothers, good women, worthy as human beings compared to men who are naturally solidly deserving and able. Celebrity women are asked if they are good mothers, their possible pregnancies are monitored in hawk-like manner like they had somehow committed the sin of having sex, living as anybody else. Her life has had a happy ending because it is the climax, the expectation realising itself, we have watched and pushed her to go exactly that direction. Women marry with men and have babies, reproduce and look happy in doing so. That is why people fuck, oh sorry, make love, and of course stay happily married to another celebrity or someone who maybe uses influence of the spouse to make a career or then they have divorce which give a story to tell and confess what went wrong. What was the wedding like, who was there, how romantic luxury life and depictions of these royals sell tons of magazines, what were they wearing. Images and stories tell, they are all we want to see and hear.

To ask whether a woman is a good mother is something that is almost a compulsory question asked of all celebrity mothers. You like to be asked whether you are a good mother frequently? Like capabilities of successful women were less in this regard still than capabilities of the male ones. Men are never asked bluntly whether they are good fathers which is of course because a man is a good parent, right. Oh yes he is a wonderful father when asked what kind of father he is to his children, and a good husband. And we imagine what is a wonderful father like: he plays with his children, spends time with them, laughs with them and reads a bedtime story.

To be worried about Britney and her health is not an issue, it is like why bother, she is where everybody wants to be and where she wanted to be so she must face all the consequences. It is to report what happens to her nonstop despite the disturbance and repetition in media, despite how media makes her act and sound like. We still think it is her and her mistakes, her shame, her falling with a baby, her fault she must run and hide from the paparazzi. It is us that they feed, we buy it, the stories with good appetite and we eat as much as there is to eat like cannibals. Not to mention what kind of culture and atmosphere all this creates for youngsters to grow into. “You are single now, why so and what is that like for you?” Circle of questions asked by journalist, by people who call themselves journalists, touch issues like sex, body, looks, pregnancies, wealth, relationships and the art these celebrities make. “Your new record, it is on the charts, congratulations. What do you think about your new record?”

One in a billion. Is it the girls running? Girls running with all that money. It is Genitalia Marathon.

What do celebrities who now get the most coverage in media have to say? What is their message? Do you know and is it something worth while thinking about? What is the message of celebrity culture as a whole? Attitude and fierceness to be bold looking good? Is there a one message as it quickly gazed might seem? Influence is massive. Who runs the world? Girls who want their behinds bigger via plastic surgery? Financial winnings made within the culture of entertainment for the artists and their creators can be whopping.  Their power is measured in magazines by calculation of how much. Industry flourishing out from movies, sports and music, fashion, magazines and other merchandise do well with right face, with right kind of exposure and bravery.

What is the real power here is an interesting thing to look through. Could the answer be as simple as who does best financially and what kind of message does that person have. What kind of story and continuity person’s career has had and will have. Future prospects and who is listening. The list of the most powerful celebrities by Forbes from this year 2014 introduces Beyoncé as the most powerful celebrity. Grounds for her number one spot lie on her 95 concerts, the released new album called Beyonce, her fragrances Heat, Pulse and Rise, clothing collection, which all contributions have been financially very successful. Estimated 115 million in earnings during one year is according to Forbes an extremely powerful thing. Of course Forbes is a magazine focusing on finance, business life and entrepreneur insight. Also its specialty are lists of the successful people in different fields of expertise. Information for the world’s business leaders, for the world who to follow. Beyoncé defines herself as a business woman and through that image has a role of a strong independent woman who has had plenty of support to become one since childhood. Which is part of her feminist agenda, be in control and create.

Gender, sexual orientation nor racial issues do not show to be such a large stepping-stones within entertainment anymore. At least what comes to making entertainment for the masses. It has become an advantage to be able to address a group that once was seen as weak. There has been empowerment, they who need to be empowered. Idols do empower and encourage, so maybe they are worth all the money they make. That could be one point Forbes is making by its list. This is how one succeeds now. How does glamour luxury and beauty businesses benefit from all the bling accessory advertising music videos represent. It is a life style presenting with moves.

Feminism tends to ban open sexuality as an invitation to sexism and abuse.

Feminism, something that cannot be answered to with respect and which is blocked away because of its stigma for hating men and hated for its anger. As Beyoncé, a feminist, but loves her husband is a an example of the strange burden feminism falsely carries in one sentence. “Beyoncé also addressed criticism about calling her forthcoming tour The Mrs Carter Show – appropriating her married name from Jay-Z, whose real name is Shawn Carter. “I feel like Mrs. Carter is who I am, but more bold and more fearless than I’ve ever been,” she said. “I do believe in equality… But I’m happily married. I love my husband.” Read more at http://www.nme.com/news/beyonce/69546#VU5RPYcwXcJ0VGuj.99

It is clear since the beginning of her career independence and strength of femininity have been core issues in her music. But that is the case for many successful female artists. Focus on showing their capability as women and encouraging others. What comes to celebrities Beyoncé is the one of the few who publicly state and promote feminism and calls herself a feminist. In her videos and music she is openly sexual, feminine and posing her assets to the world as any pop star provocatively. In this way looking she is very similar to for example Rihanna, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj who all are artists and music personalities creating their image, some more and some less. Though of their image and art it is difficult to tell who is making who and does it matter what we actually know about the making of a pop star. I think we should be aware. Level and mastering of manipulation is all what being a celebrity is about. Feminism in this landscape is a curse, a word usually banned and feared. Image of a feminist is opposite to gorgeous and sexy stars. How often feminists are said to be ugly. It is like the worst thing, hideous female who does not attract anyone, but is full of hate and grudge. Ignorance and prejudice is huge upon those who seek justice. Women are not allowed to be angry for being harassed, hated, killed, diminished, put down and treated as second class citizens.
Sexual expression, what is it exactly? Where does the limit go if there is any? And why is it empowerment and not sexism? Empowerment through sexism is a strange thought. It is getting gifts via pleasing the right way. Entertainment is the ultimate pleaser. To please to get the wanted thing and impact. Pop singers and performers like to state that they are in control. It is interesting to explore that control which they refer as theirs, rules that they see as settings of theirs.
Much of what we can take and understand must be lined inside ideals. Outside are left the things unwanted.
