Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud
Anne Helen Petersen
From celebrity gossip expert and BuzzFeed columnist Anne Helen Petersen comes an accessible, analytical look at how modern female celebrities are pushing boundaries and challenging expectations. For readers of Roxane Gay, Rebecca Traister, and Lindy West.
You know the type: the woman who won’t shut up, who’s too brazen, too opinionated—too much. She’s the unruly woman, and she embodies one of the most provocative and powerful forms of womanhood today. In Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud, popular BuzzFeed columnist Anne Helen Petersen examines this phenomenon, using the lens of “unruliness” to discuss the ascension of pop culture powerhouses like Amy Schumer, Nicki Minaj, and Caitlyn Jenner, and why the public loves to love (and hate) these controversial figures. With its brisk and engaging analysis, and its appealing topic, Too Fat, Too Slutty, Too Loud will be a conversation-starting book on what makes and breaks celebrity today.
