“Whether they’re selling perfume or a song, people have decided they’re a brand. Hollywood did a good job of creating icons in the 30s and 40s, they understood a story. Now, give ‘em a haircut and some clothes and they think they can pull off Aphrodite.”
“Then you have situations like Britney shaving her head. I don’t think her sweet, saccharine image was close to who she really was, and she rebelled.”
For her latest album, American Doll Posse, Amos invented four Greek Goddesses that she channeled to sing various tracks. If only Britney could be that inventive with her identity, maybe she could have avoided shaving her head. American Doll Posse is out on May 1st.
