Britney Spears has been slammed not only for her new single “Work Bitch,” but also for her recent radio interview comments about the LGBT community, according to the Huffington Post.
Mykki Blanco, a gender-bending queer performer tweeted up a storm about Spears’ new song, calling it “tacky.” She asked, “Is it just me or is EVERY female pop star currently in a war to secure as many GAY fans and gay $ as possible?” Blanco continued to say, “This is not ‘gay pride’ it’s ‘gay marketing.’”
Spears was under fire for attempting to exploit the gay community with her last album, too. Femme Fatale was the name of the album and it was rumored that RuPaul would be featured on the track prior to the song’s release.
Blanco joins a group of people who have attacked mainstream singers for exploiting the gay community.
Rapper Le1f tweeted about Macklemore’s success during the 2013 VMAs: “I’m gonna write a song about disabled people, or about the aboriginal struggle. cuz mama needs a new fur coat. oh wait, that’s evil.” He also said, “News just in: gay people don’t care about your video about gay people.”
The gay community’s attack on Spears doesn’t stop with her song. She recently rubbed some of the LGBT community the wrong way during her interview on 99.7 NOW FM in San Francisco.
When asked if she has a group of gay people that influence her work, Spears said, “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.”
