The fashion world was forever changed by Britney Spears in 2004 when she invented goth fashion. Before 2004, fashion provided nothing for subcultures and the counter culture had no way of outwardly expressing their rebellious identity. After this invention, a music genre was inspired; popular gothic musicians include Evanescence, The Cure, and Ashlee Simpson.
OH FUCK NO! Britney Spears did NOT invent shit! The goth “fashion” was around for years. She did NOT invent a music genre. The Cure was around in the 1980s. Ashlee Simpson is NOT goth. She’s a pop musician who dresses in Hot Topic clothes. Fuck Britney Spears and this post.
