Blackout?

Hey guys. So let's get back to Britney Spears. Her new album just recently dropped. It's titled Blackout.

I'm not planning to get it since I didn't like her first song off the album- "Gimme More". Her planned comeback performance at the MTV Music Award didn't do much to convince me. There's been some mixed reviews about the new album. Critic Jim Farber described the album as "If a blow-up sex doll could sing, this is what she'd sound like". While on the other hand, Entertainment Weekly gave it a rating of B+. I guess we'll just have to be the judge ourselves. Most of her songs have been leaked onto the internet so if you're still debating about whether or not to the buy the album, click on the site below. It has all of the leaked songs so take a listen:

Britney says Blackout stands for "blacking out negativity and embracing life". Her last album "In The Zone" came out 3 years ago and she has changed so much since then. Her record company says that her second single will be released soon- by mid-November. I'm hoping the next single will be better and display more of her singing abilities rather than her just chanting "gimme, gimme".

So before I completely give up on Britney, let's hope that she'll prove everyone wrong and show everyone that she still has it. It's going to be tough because there's a lot of pressure and the world is watching her. The paparazzi tails her and every mistake she makes is magnified. We'll see Britney...

Britney Spears- What Happened?

Hey guys, welcome to my blog. For this assignment, we were told to pick a subject that interested us and so I decided on Britney Spears. I was never an obsessed fan or anything, but I have to admit that I did think she was pretty cool back in the day. Everyone thought that she was really pretty and she was a pop icon. No one would have thought five years ago that Britney Spears would change into the person she is today. She shaved her head, wears distasteful clothes, and acts as if she's crazy. We thought her divorce to Kevin Federline would be a good thing and she would return to her old self, but it only got worse.

Look at the difference- the old Britney versus the new Britney

I'll be here to update you on any crazy Britney behaviors and I'm sure there will be a lot of them. Will she be able to make a comeback? She definitely won't be able to if she plans to perform like she did at the MTV Video Music Awards. Here's a clip of her performance http://youtube.com/watch?v=hdhV16_u7ow She had no energy and it seemed like she didn't even care. Well let's just hope that it gets better than that.
