The industry-pushed hyper-sexualized imagery of teen-pop stars like Britney Spears in the 1990s and its impact on girls's self-image was an inspiration for the Evanescence song "Everybody's Fool", written by Amy Lee in 1999. Amy said in 2016 that it's an old song she felt disconnected from.
When Britney was having heavily-publicized issues in 2007, someone on an Evanescence message board made a video with one of Evanescence's songs making fun of Britney. Amy heavily disapproved of this, and asked the fan to take the video down.
|OK, hold on a second. I have to post that I in NO WAY am going to endorse any kind of Britney bashing after everything she's been through. I can't control what people put on YouTube or anywhere else on the internet, but I would NEVER want my picture or our music connected to something that's based on getting enjoyment out of someone's pain. I know what it's like to feel manipulated, used and helpless - so do most of you, that's why you're here - and by now I know what it's like to feel like your entire life is open to the world for judgement. I don't read tabloids and I don't care about celebrity, but it is impossible to escape the whole world just loving to watch her suffer. Remember that this is a human being we're talking about - and who wants to be like those horrible people that have hurt you to feel better about themselves? 'Everybody's Fool' is about the fact that the whole celebrity thing is fake and empty. I think Britney Spears is more aware of that now than anyone. I'm not trying to burn you at the stake, Strat, but it would mean alot to me if you'd take your clip down.
P.S.: Tabloids are dumb. Don't buy them.
