Amen! The last paragraph especially. I also the feeling of community has been missing from the media discourse. Beyoncé, Taylor Swift and Barbie all created communal experiences that allowed strangers to come together and share something. It’s really no different than sports except men just can’t understand it. “Why are you dressing up for a movie?” -- why do you wear your favorite jersey on Sundays? Why are Taylor Swift tickets so expensive? -- why are Super Bowl tickets so expensive? And so on!

Amy, this is straight-up 🔥

I was lucky enough to be someone’s +1 for Beyonce at Met Life, and it was a mind-blowing experience. She is superhuman.

Amen. Just came here to say that and can see everyone else agrees. Got my Taylor tickets for February when she's in Sydney and I cannot wait. Also taking my 1 year old to a mums and bubs session of Barbie tomorrow because I need to see it and haven't had a chance to go yet.
