It's Britney, Bitch!

Ladies and gentleman, without further ado, I'm happy to begin introducing my Post Modern Muses. They are a group of 21st century women who inspire me with their movies, music, books, art, and general fierceness. Reflecting the Ancient Greek Muses, there are nine Post Modern Muses in total...and they're sent from the heavens to kick my ass into drawing more.

Who better to start with than a girl who began as a bubble gum pop princess that they said wouldn't last...only to prove that, with an endless cannon of catchy songs and the occasional public meltdown, you can keep people interested. I'm talking about Britney Spears, y'all! I envision her as the Post Modern Muse equivalent of Terpsichore, the Ancient Greek Muse of dance. Cause let's be real, in her prime, Brit could work that VMA stage with theeeee sickest dance moves since no one.

My Po Mo Muse Britney is always seen with her infamous pet snake, who I've decided is named Billy Bob. Watch them together below at the 2001 MTV VMAs, in what many consider the best choreographed piece of dance in the history of anything:
