Britney Spears was one of the only true punks in Hollywood. So many “punks” are in it for the aesthetic and culture but Britney transcended the superficial elements of punk and actually embodied it organically. After being turned into a product at an age when she wasn’t even old enough to know what she was getting herself into, she denounced it all, shaved her hair off, and put everything on the line because she was tired of being controlled by “the man”. She didn’t go around with safety pins in her nose and anarchy patches on her jacket but this bitch didn’t need to talk that talk because she just walked the walk instead. Britney put Hollywood on its head, more so than many self-identified punks ever did.
