Britney Spears has become something of a gay icon, but is it something she appreciates? She made some comments in an interview that people are using against her, saying she’s exploiting her LGBT fanbase by “marketing” them. Sort of like fetishizing them (and I know we can all think of another pop princess who’s been accused of doing that). Here’s what she said on 99.7 NOW FM in San Francisco, via Huffington Post:
A lot of my hair stylists and my beauty team that I work with are gay so I hang out with gays a lot and I just think they’re adorable and hilarious.
The issue here is how Britney lumped the entire gay community into an “adorable” and “hilarious” bunch, like they’re not individuals and are puppies or something. I don’t know. I honestly don’t think she meant offend. What do you think? Was Britney being insensitive?
