Gender Fluidity Went Pop In 2015

The Guardian runs this sub-headline: ‘Miley Cyrus blurred the lines between boy and girl, Angel Haze came out as agender and cross-dressing rapper Young Thug challenged stereotypes. In the first in our series on the musical talking points of 2015, a look at how pop stars are refusing to be pinned down.’ Gee, I thought that screwing around with gender has been part of pop and rock for decades. I figured that out in the early 1970s, when, as a boy, I discovered David Bowie and Ziggy Stardust. Don’t you just love how kids think that if something happens amongst their generation that it must be something new?
