SNL fly the flag for feminism
Ariana Grande teamed up with the ladies of SNL for unlikely feminist anthem. The comedic track titled ‘This is Not a Feminist Song’ has been making waves online since it aired on Saturday. The track, which was intended as a skit on the hugely popular show has become somewhat of anthem for empowerment. The playful lyrics poke fun at feminism, but, whilst doing so, bring attention to women’s issues – allowing for open discussion to flourish. The deliberate use of a Coney Island backdrop, corny lyrics and catchy chorus are juxtaposed with the fundamental message of the song. The trending track homes in on the notion that feminism and its need for application, permeate every strata of society.
