‘I’ll be resurrecDEAD as your ultimate fantasy – a sexy dead virgin.’
– The Famous
Pulling from the myth of Medusa, Nicki Minaj, and The Famous’ own legendary
self(ie), Notorious examines female pop-monsters and the redemptive death and resurrection of witches and bitches. The Famous plunges into the ghostly underworld of popular culture, seeking the spectral purity behind her own whorish behaviour, in this pop-phenomenon of music, dance, and witch-bitch ritual. Repentance just might manifest from behind The Famous’ ghastly gaze, if she can put her slutty soul to rest. Beware the horny ghost.
