As the author of a popular Foucault blog can I just say that I found the following to be totally offensive. Does this author really think that Britney Spears is talking about Foucault’s Discipline and Punish? I mean there is simply no comparison at all. Well, OK they did both shave their heads but that’s it!!
I also do not recommend rushing out to buy Leila Johnston’s book (if that is really her name) as a stocking stuffer for Christmas or watching any of the wickedly funny videos on her site.
Britney and Foucault
This is something I’ve been thinking about for a while, and it’s made me really wish I knew more about Foucault. I know enough about Britney, I think. Please feel free to add elaborating comments, we can build a great theory together! Maybe.
I need time (time)
I need space
I need me
Say hello to the girl that I am!
You’re gonna have to see through my perspective
Could be interpreted in the light of Foucault’s work on surveillance in Discipline and Punish, and his ideas about the panoptic society in particular.
If it wasn’t for the useful pull-out color chart for sorting tea there would be no point to this book at all. (con’t pg. 94)
