Popular music has been a well-studied area during the 20th century, but this focus waned during the early part of the 21st Century, moving instead to music on the fringes. With recent academic and press interest in gender and sexuality in contemporary popular music, we aim to bring together a collection of works related to the notions of misogyny, toxic masculinity and heteronormativity in post-2000 popular music. Specifically, the purposes of this book are to:

 

-          Address the themes of heteronormativity and gender stereotyping

-          Explore misogyny,  female exploitation, and the sexualisation of female artists

-          Discuss the concept of toxic masculinity

The concept of sharing has become pervasive in the 21st century. We are encouraged to 'share' our digital data (e.g. facebook) and to participate in the 'sharing industry' (e.g. Airbnb). Moreover, popular self-help literature emphasizes that we should develop healthy intimate relationships through sharing or disclosing our innermost thoughts and feelings. While these are quite diverse practices, the concept of 'sharing' emphasizes a link, endowing them with a positive value. This extraordinary career of the concept 'sharing' has led sociologists such as Nicholas John to dub our contemporary time as an '‘age of sharing'. The practices subsumed under 'sharing', however, have also given rise to controversy.
