I’ve always admired how controversial women are just, comfortable of being who they are. The truthfulness in their mind, not limited by the female norms. It’s just refreshing to think of and just, witness. How they are female but not afraid to speak their mind, and eventually become famous, even infamous for some. That’s what I am aiming for to live by, to be remembered, or just simply, to shock and leave expressions and impressions.
We all loved and hated her at one point. The child star-turned-into-one-of-the-world’s-biggest-celebrity ginger bombshell has been a true beauty to many fans. From her starring in movies like Mean Girls, Freaky Friday, and Herbie, she had claimed many fans and has ever since----went into a “downfall”. Like former Disney star, Britney Spears, Lohan had experienced some major highs and lows. Her allegations to criminal acts that have brought her to being locked up. Controversies on drug use had also surrounded the star with so many criticism, as well as botox.
I might not be a huge fan of her, since there was a generation gap in between. Even though there weren’t many controversies surrounding this philantropist, she is definitely one of those women who are still remembered up till today. From her classic appearances in Breakfast at Tiffany’s and My Fair Lady(based on Shaw’s Pygmalion), this woman definitely left an impression to the world of fame.
She was the candy to our eyes back in her Hannah Montana days, however, she is brunette no more! Miley Cyrus has took a controversial move ever since she bleached her hair and chopped it short, and started to pull her tongue out and TWERK!TWERK!TWERK!. She went from country girl to billboard chart topper, swinging naked on a Wrecking Ball. With loads of scandals and what seems to be a wardrobe malfunction, she definitely defines as what “Bangerz!” really is. With her growing up fast, she definitely is one of the world’s most controversial icons.
Living for the A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E, this gypsy may not be everyone’s cup of tea. Also known as Mother Monster, the artist(not celebrity) has always continued to experiment and push the boundaries of music, art, and fashion. With the quirkiest fashion statements, from leather, meat, and kermit the frog dolls, she is one of the world’s most successful and controversial icons. With her meaningful, yet controversial messages, she is definitely a controversial woman to the world, but a loving icon to her loyal Little Monsters.
She may be mythical but she is just as fierce as the other icons. Described as being ugly and a monster, Medusa is one of the world’s most iconic conntoversial women. Her hair is made up of snakes, and when one sees her directly in the eyes, they will turn onto stone. A representation of a strong and fierce, as well as monstrous woman. She may be said to be ugly, but hey, she’s the REAL face of Versace!.
