Entertainment News: Cyberpunk 2077, Harry Styles, David Fincher, JK Rowling, Chimimanda Ngozi Adichi



Welcome to the third installment of Feminist Frequency’s entertainment news round up; a semi-regular series where we share our thoughts on all the media and pop culture news that crawled from the depths of 2020 to illuminate our screens (and mostly dampen our spirits). In this episode we’re: (still) looking forward to the release of Cyberpunk 2077; being disappointed by prominent voices who should really know better; and being as jazzed about a certain rock star in a couture gown as we are unsurprised by the people who have a problem with it.
