Here’s Courtney’s fashion statement going viral:
“Well, you know, the problem with fashion is that proletarian male rock critics have a real problem with Bruce Springsteen with themes like denim boomers. We as women have thousands and thousands of years of fashion in our DNA. We want to wear pretty shitty clothes; it’s part of what we do! If you get the opportunity to go to the Oscars in a fabulous dress and be absolutely fabulous, you’re going to take it. I don’t have to like hearing a rule. Who made that rule? A silly guy.
Courtney responded to TikTok trends in the caption of her latest Instagram post as follows:
“This is trending on TikTok and all my friends are screaming for joy.
In case you’re all wondering why I sound so ‘strident’ in my ‘rant’ (angry response) to the 999 snide questions from the press about how my ‘sold out’ status is due to wearing a hashtag to the Oscars.. It’s because I broke.
Yeah. Gen Z, you won’t believe us, but yeah, seriously, there was a time when dressing beautifully and thoughtfully for an event with a designer you loved meant you weren’t a real rock musician.
1998: You can sit in the fucking corner in a donkey cap.
All of you are cute AF.”
Unfortunately, interventions on the female body did not stop in the 1990s. Courtney is probably delighted that a speech she gave has allowed women to express their fashion styles on social media, especially in a social context where the politics of the female body has been so widely discussed.
