Britney spears ‘i wanna go’ feminist

  1. 1. Britney spears ‘I wanna go’
  2. 2. Feminist view • Britney opened her top and showed her breasts to the ticket inspector to try to make him not give her a ticket. Britney spears exploits her sexuality (post feminist reading) • Britney spears is aware of the male gaze and her objectification. She reveals her body and in doing so, confirms to the gender stereotypes of women
  3. 3. Feminist view • Paparazzi take pictures of her walking down the street which shows that men are in a position of power as Britney spears is represented as a sex object that women are seen as objects.
  4. 4. Feminist view • These two points show that females are treated like objects as pictures are taken of them as they do things like walk down the street. Britney showing her breasts to the ticket inspector could show that women have the power to use their assets to their advantage however, it could be argued that this video reinforces traditional ideas about gender. This shows that males main goal is a female and a ticket from the inspector is less important to the inspector than a view of her breasts.
  5. 5. Feminist view • The male (that is driving) commands Britney Spears to ‘get in’ the car, this represents that the male has power over the female (patriarchal control) • near the end of the video the man tells the press that the conference is over which again represents that he is in control of the conference. • at the end of the video the man which puts his arm around Britney turns to the camera and laughs, this body language and actions connote that he is in charge of her and he laughs about it because getting her was easy.
  6. 6. Post feminist view • The opening sequences of the music video shows Britney Spears in a press conference in which the first question is from a male, another question is also from a man that asks her opinion about the way he looks. This shows that men value her judgement and see her as superior. All of the audience is male, male gaze is subverted. Shows that she is the most powerful
  7. 7. Post Feminist view • During the press conference, Britney spears sears at the journalists. She has power over everyone else.
  8. 8. Post feminist view • During this video, Britney Spears grabs at different male characters in a sexual way. This represents the change in attitudes towards female sexuality. Rather than being passive, with men the active role in relationships, Britney Spears is in control, sexually aware and very active. Also she does not seem to suffer any real consequences. Britney Spears behaviour is viewed as ‘normal’ and acceptable
  9. 9. Post feminist view • Britney smashes the paparazzi’s camera after letting him take photographs of her. Her actions show that she owns her own image and is prepared to fight for her independence, she rejects the male gaze.
  10. 10. Post feminist view • Britney hits all of the camera men with a very long microphone. Britney spears allows a camera man to take photographs of her as she poses for the camera, after a few shots she walks up to the camera man and brakes his camera which shows that she is in control of the situation and that she can do what she wants. Britney then hits all of the camera men that are surrounding her with a comically long microphone. Britney spears has shown both feminist and post feminist views in this music video.
