Encyclopedia Britannicney: A Star Is Born, Part One

In 1999 and 2000, Britney Spears went from being a little-known cootie patootie to the most influential pop star in the world. Her rise was rapid, and her promotional opps were plentiful. In today’s edition of Encyclopedia Britannicney, professors Hannah and Maddie are joined by visiting lecturer Marcus, who has seen Britney 40 – we repeat, 40 – times in concert.

Part One of A Star Is Born focuses on the Baby One More Time album and affiliated tour. Find your reading list here: Reading List

Comparative Socialite Studies: La Lohan and The Genius of Madness

Students, take your seats! This lecture’s going to be a doozy, as the time has come for us to study the one socialite to rule them all: Lindsay effing Lohan. La Lohan proved to be funner, crazier, and red hair-ier than the rest, giving her a special place in 2000s history and beyond. From Olympic-medalling sexual escapades to political aspirations, and a complex code-based language employed in her social media posts, Lindsay definitely knows more than you think.

We also discuss pressing matters such as James Franco’s pretension, 2005’s VMAs, and why Kanye West should deliver his State of the Union using the staging set-up from the Life of Pablo tour.
