Taylor Swift – Look What you Made me Do. Packed full of intertextual references – cultural competence required. Jameson would hate it. Baudrillard would say it is a sympton of consumer culture. Lyotard would like the fact that she is pointing the finger at the press who has defined her as having a ‘victim’ complex – she is being ironic and has her finger firmly in her cheek – parody of their representation of her.
TOIWE – does Shakespeare. The blurring of lines between low art and high art? Would Lyotard like this? I think so. Whereas Jameson would think it was cheap and nasty and distorts history.
