Britney Spears Uses Nicole Richie As Bondage Slave During Las Vegas Performance – (VIDEO)

Britney Spears Uses Nicole Richie As Bondage Slave During Las Vegas Performance - (VIDEO)

Sometimes, I feel like Britney Spears doesn’t even understand basic societal norms, and it’s difficult to understand how her friends and family let her do stuff like this – unless she just doesn’t tell them? According to video leaked from Britney’s most recent ‘Piece of Me’ performance in Las Vegas [on Tuesday], Britney thought it might be a good idea to bring Nicole Richie on stage in bondage gear, and treat her like a ‘slave’.

I get it – it’s performance art. But it’s also incredibly insensitive and too often fetishized, and that doesn’t seem to have entered anyone’s minds. I mean, this isn’t even the first time Britney’s done this – apart from Nicole, she’s brought her boyfriend and other famous friends on stage in a very similar manner. She reportedly chose Nicole from the crowd, put her in bondage gear, and then led her around the stage in all fours.

They hugged it out during the ending of the performance, and Britney later tweeted, “Can we all give a round of applause to @NicoleRichie for playing along in the show tonight? U looked hot crawling on all fours ;)”

Again, fetishized. See? Either way you look at it, it’s insensitive. It’s insensitive to people who still have to live with the history of actual slavery, and it’s insensitive to women. Being led around on all fours isn’t ‘hot’, it’s degrading and punishing. There’s nothing sexy about that kind of imagery, and it’s performances like this that keep the this crap present in pop culture.

    fetishized? is that a word and what exactly does it mean- or do you mean…its obviously a sexual fetish popular with some people…I guess I want to know what IS it- if not a fetish? real? do you think there are ppl who just enjoy enslaving other ppl and making them engage in humiliating acts- meaning nonsexual- just mean? it IS a sexual fetish- not a real life event….right? you get that, right?

    Maybe Britney has that fetish. Or maybe she was just looking to shock people. There is an entire subculture where this type of thing is normal. It has nothing to do with women’s suppression or even actual slavery. Perhaps you should read up on it and will learn about it. :)
