I Love It!: Icona Pop’s Feminine Endings
“I Love It” is feminized in a lot of ways, and both the song’s composition and its reception can tell us a lot about contemporary white femininities. As post-feminism folds privileged women into patriarchy (e.g., women in combat, lesbian weddings, leaning in, etc.), “I Love It” explores several types of femininity that are still devalued. I’d be interested in your thoughts on this–are there more ways in which femininity is at stake in either the song or its reception?
