We aren’t complaining about the nostalgic tide of attention the internet paid to the late ‘90s and early ‘00s after the Britney Spears doc by the New York Times blew up last month. Take your crown, Ms. Spears, our eternal Princess of Pop.
But it’d be a disservice not to note the other divas to come out of an iconic generation of voices. Doylestown-born Pink stood out from the crowd in “Most Girls,” and then there was Christina Aguilera belting about redemption in “Fighter” (were boxing ring scenes mandatory for music videos in the 2000s?). Destiny’s Child gave us an everlasting karaoke jam with “Survivor,” and how can we ever repay Vanessa Carlton for the perfect driving crooner “A Thousand Miles“?
With songs like that (and many, many others), why haven’t we invented time travel so we can revisit the 2000s? Might just be a new quarantine project to embark on … or we can get back to that “Unwritten” job search.
Melissa Alam is the anti-sexism superstar of the week. The entrepreneurial leader of several projects, such as FearlessCon and ALAM Digital, publicized a misogynistic LinkedIn DM she received from a Philly nonprofit leader about her profile photo, sparking a valuable conversation on how NOT to address women in a professional space.
