I apologize for the lack in postings recently. I’ve been mulling over what exactly it was I wanted to write about and have come to the conclusion that it’s time for a change in direction. Where I was interested in the very broad aspect of cyber-feminism, I have now decided to zero in on something that is still very pertinent to feminism; Feminism in pop culture.
We are all, mostly anyways, constantly exposed to several different and prominent figures in the media. Be it through blogs, tweets, or even Facebook links, there is constant exposure to the famed figures of Hollywood. Some are painted in certain lights due to their very public actions. Media often portrays celebrities in a negative light, anything really to create buzz around that celebrity. When dealing with celebrities, there will inevitably be buzz surrounding them on websites like Twitter and Tumblr. What I would like to explore is expanding on the perceptions of these celebrities in regards to feminism, and just how much truth is behind them.
For this reason, I have decided to focus on whether or not the celebrities that are being painted as feminists nowadays, really have the right to be called so, and if those who are being antagonized are simply being attacked for doing something unconventional. I have a few celebrities in mind that I have already researched about which include: Beyonce, Lily Allen, and Miley Cyrus. I am very open to suggestions for other celebrities that would help further this study.
This is Serena, signing off.
