In the text “BeyoncĂ©, Sex Terrorist: A Menace for Conservatives and Liberals Alike” by Noah Berlatsky, the author makes a response to O’Reilly’s claim about how he believes Beyonce portrays a bad image to teenagers and the society today than what she used when she was younger. For example O’Reilly states that “Teenage girls look up to BeyoncĂ©, particularly girls of
color. Why would she do it when she knows the devastation that unwanted pregnancies. … Why would BeyoncĂ© do that?”it also states “I see a part of BeyoncĂ© that is, in fact, anti-feminist—that is, a terrorist—especially in terms of the impact on young girls,”. I personally disagree with this statement, yes I do agree that a lot of people especially teenagers look up to Beyonce as a role model, but I don’t believe that her actions is intentional or would influence peoples actions. Over time the different trends pop up and as a celebrity Beyonce has to keep up and make the trend her own. Many singers and rappers do the same thing in our society today such as Megan Thee Stallion, Cardi B, City girls, and many more in which they are not getting banished or called “anti feminist” because of the way they dress or the image they portray, these rappers all wear revealing clothes and also have teenage girls who look up to them.  I feel like if parents have a problem with the way Beyonce dresses or portrays her-self it’s their responsibility to not let their kids dress the same way. I also feel like in our generation today this is typically what singers and rappers wear, which relates to my point about new trends. Yes Beyonce never dressed like that before but people need to understand that this is not the 90s or early 2000s, trends changes over time. I feel like Beyonce and these other celebrities are just embracing their bodies which does not seem anti feminist at all. If people are going to talk about the way female rappers dress they should also talk about how male rapper constantly call women “thots”, and “hoes” in their song constantly in this generation, which seems very anti feminist to me.

In the article the author mention a social issue involving “corporate rock”. Which is a pejorative term for AOR type bands that played commercially acceptable songs. Many people take this as an insult because it gave the 70s-80s music a bad name. Many people take this as a their music is the type of music that should be planned in the elevator, due to the fact that it lacks creativity and results in heavy marketing. In the article it states “What’s funny about the insult is how old-fashioned it seems. The term “corporate rock” is a relic of the nineteen-seventies, popularized by critics who felt that the big record companies had coöpted a rebellious, authentic genre for mass consumption.”

In the article “on rap and white noise”, the author talks about the different meaning and detail of the song “o6”, he explains how the songs beat and the way it flows is entirely different than most music. He says this because he believes the song’s “words and sounds don’t matter”.He explains what truly mattered in the song was the rupture. In my opinion based on what the author have said in the article I have never heard a song like it before, for example the authors says that the song  uses “white noise to depict a kind of death, yet it’s also the sound of a channel being changed or a TV
or radio shutting off: Someone is controlling this switch.”This makes the song unique.

In the text” art at arms length” by Jerry Saltz, he talks about the importance of a selfie in the world today. He categorizes the importance of a selfie in different parts which includes Defining a new form, what they say, what they don’t say, and art history, and art future. Reading this article made me think of this article I have read, which also discuss the important that selfies have and how it can impact individuals. It relates to Jerry Saltz text because it talks about how a selfie can capture the moment and potently make history.

In all the text the main issue is addiction. The text that stood out to me the most is “issues for DSM-V”, the text is mainly about internet addiction. The text states that many people have a disorder called compulsive-impulsive, this disorder involves excessive usage, withdrawal, tolerance, negative repercussions. I believe the most common is excessive usage, many individuals have trouble staying of their phone, or the internet including myself. I feel because of the generation we live in today everything is surrounded by the internet and technology, which causes many to have this disorder.

For todays media share  the story “Triptych:Texas Pool Party” made me think of a picture I saw on social media. It relates to the story because the text is based on the different perspective of how a story of racism and police brutality happened. In the image I feel the artist is trying to say that many police officers try to use their authority is the wrong way and feel they would get away with it because they are in law enforcement. Many police officers feel as if they are superior to others just because they are in law enforcement. In the text the officer involved used he authority and violence to try to defuse a situation without actually know what’s going on, just because the girl was black. In the image I also feel as if the artist was trying to say that most of these situation involve young black male and women.

My media share is a YouTube video (https://youtu.be/dejYNDrVE-M), this video is mainly about the impact black women can do in the world today. It helps shows me that you can become and do anything you put your mind to. Being your self is your main priority, the only opinion that truly matters is your own. This video relates to because not only as a black individual, but also as a woman there is always someone who tells you how to be or how go forward with your life, but in reality I have the wheel in how I shape my life. After a rainy day there is always sunshine.

In the story “My Instagram”, by Tortorici I kind of got lost reading the text but in what I got from the reading is that the narrator is basically obsessed or addicted to social media. The narrator talks about how everything they tried to stay off social media, they some how found their self back on the app. For example the narrator tired telling he’s friend to change the password on twitter but still found an excuse to go back on it, which was the needing to know the news more quickly. He was so obsessed that he made up rules to the social media app, instagram.Which us to only follow people that he knows, but eventually ends up breaking that rule. Before reading this passage I never thought of myself as addicted to social media,  but after reading it I realized that I literally do the such as, stay hours on instagram scrolling over and over, and trying to stay on top of the new trends. I feel as if everyone goes there this type of experience where the find an app that they are just hooked to. Literally every chance I get I am on snap chat or instagram. It just crazy how an app can take your whole focus, and block out your surroundings.
