What does track is Spears feeling like the people around her don't take her requests seriously. "When I tell them the way I feel, it's like they hear me but they're really not listening," she also says in For the Record, likening her situation to prison. "Even when you go to jail, you know there’s the time when you’re gonna get out. " I have no doubt that Ashley O. has similar feelings in Black Mirror.
Nearly every woman in music has opened up in some way about industry politics. "They pressure me, [saying] 'You gotta be sexy, you gotta be cute, you gotta be nice, you gotta be all these things,'" Selena Gomez said in 2014. "They tell me what to wear, how to look, what I should say, how I should be. ” What Ashley O. and Britney Spears have in common is an intense desire to rebel from seemingly inescapable circumstances.
The parallels are interesting. https://t.co/dy2ZO31F8m— Glamour (@glamourmag) June 6, 2019
