Constance wrote a great post comparing the Y Generation to Britney Spears. To compare our generation to Britney Spears is truly a big leap, but I understand the connection that she was trying to make.
I think that we are risk-takers and that we are the generation that truly has a mind of its own. We switch jobs easily and try to look out for whats best for us. We really are not loyal to our employers and want to experiment with pretty much everything. We are the new media generation and we have a much lower sense of privacy than any other generation before us. We can become self-made celebrities using YouTube, we can keep track of our hundreds of friends using Facebook, and we can publish our deepest thoughts using blogs.
I think that Britney is just a person who is garbage (sorry for being so blunt). I don’t think she truly represents our Gen because even though you can say that she is a “risk-taker,” she is weak and got caught up in the hollywood glamor.
If I had to choose a female celebrity that encompasses the Y Generation, it would be Natalie Portman. She would be a great person to represent our gen. She graduated from a distinguished university, has become an internationally known movie star, is absolutely gorgeous (had to throw that in there), and is not afraid of controversy or putting herself out there:
She is a vegetarian, advocate of animal rights, and doesn’t believe in an afterlife. She is our generation and I think the ideal female representative.
