Does anyone think Hold On Tight is about God? The one she talks about sounds too mystical to be a living person.

peeves
29-11-13, 12:44
I think hold on tight is about god because it sounds like a song about spirituality.

Sir Croft
29-11-13, 13:45
Indeed. There's also, of course, Passenger, which is also a very spiritual song. And the religious metaphor in Brightest Morning Star. This is a very different direction for her, and, honestly, I love it.

I don't think it's about Jesus, people mistook Sia's words. Britney said a bright morning star was how Jesus found his way, so she wanted to use that analogy as Term of Endearment™ for the important people in her life, most likely her children.

It's still got a religious vibe, though, and I have to agree with KIKO when it comes to that kind of thing.

Sir Croft

Well, I don't really see the problem with it. :p And I'm not religious by any means. But I appreciate that Britney is showing this side of her again, it feels very sincere. And, for a personal album, I guess this is good. She's not trying to sell a religion, she's just expressing how she feels about hers.

I actually really enjoy Britney Jean, I mean i was expecting an amazing personal album, but what weve ended up with is almost that. The album would have been alot better had it been co produced by someone other than Will.I.Am imo, who seems to be slowly losing his ability to make great beats. Some of the songs on BJ seem.. bland? they seem to be underproduced, and im not feeling the flow of some of the songs as well. Like think of when Nelly Furtado worked with Timbaland and made Loose (perfection imo), some of the songs on that album would have been absolutely perfect on Britney jean (eg say it right or All Good Things Come To an End) I really wanted to hear a calm Danja produced track :cln: I find myself cringing at the lyrics more so than i ever did with Femme Fatale as well, and then i love the lyrics of some of the songs. These things aside though I do really enjoy the album and the light heartedness of it. I love how none of the songs are actually sad, theres a happy theme to the album, it seems britneys voice is the highlight of it all, it sounds way better now than it has for a while. I was really really hoping for a bassy dance track like Freakshow.. but alas not this time. Overall I'd say 3.5/5, Im all about production in songs and BJ fell a little flat for me, however its still better than half of the other garbage pop "queens" have been throwing out this year. My top 5 songs would be..

5. Alien
- love the spaceyness and mellowness (which can easily be confused with blandness) of this song, and the lyrics :')

4. It Should Be Easy
- At first listen i despised it, but it quickly became stuck in my brain. you can certainly tell David guetta worked on it. Im growing to like how synthesized Britneys voice sounds in it as well, and them lyrics :p

3. Til It's gone
- This song is amazing, definitly one of the best on BJ. The verses are meh but dat chorus, it sounds like Right Now by Rihanna, which is amazing. And once again, those lyrics :D

2. Body Ache
- Honestly this song would be number 1 for me if the chorus had more oomph, I just love it. The beat during verses and breakdown kill me :cln: Also regarding the second verse issue, why on earth would britney get a backup singer to sing her own song, when said backup singer sounds just like her? Its clearly britney, her voice is very versatile and can be edited heavily while still sounding good ive noticed. Final chorus of this song ruins it for me because its lacking any oomph.

1. Tik Tik Boom
- Verses :cln: Chorus :cln: T.I. :cln: The beat :cln: The lyrics are perfect for britney. Best song on the album for me and also the most radio friendly imo

Makes no difference to me, there are far better writers than Britney. Its who she writes with that changes the flow of the songs. Also when I say personal i look at it production wise and think of Lana Del Rey type songs lol :p never again

^Looking at that i don't think anyone ever told Brit how to sing and dance at the same time; she seems to mime it all and dance or try and sing everything all the time and dance which doesn't work. She should sing live but let the backing track do some of the work like other artists these days instead of trying to sing every line even when the song makes it hard or near impossible to do like MATM. I guess that's why she resorted to singing ballads only live.

It's really not a grower at all, I've already done that and my feelings still remain the same. It still feels like half an album and it definitely feels full of lack luster filler tracks.

I'm gonna be honest for a moment, review this album and express my opinion.

I like most songs but nothing really stands out for me. The album is short even the deluxe edition.

Alien is good but it's still missing something. And what is up with the effect on this part "But the stars in your eyes look like HOOOOOMEEE take my home." They should've fixed that. Re-record it bitch! Still this song is a keeper.

Work Bitch is still my favorite track of the album. The beat may not be anything new but the lyrics are awesome. It's a nice work out song and an excellent lead single.

Perfume is pretty. I liked it right away, I liked her vocals and the instrumental. The lyrics could have been better written. Still a keeper.

It Should Be Easy is ok. I like the verses because of the effect on her voice. I despise the lyrics and Will.i.am's presence. The beat is cool but again not anything new. I would've either put this in the Deluxe Edition or left it out completely.

Tik Tik Boom. I like this song. The lyrics are ok though not necessarily good. I like T.I.'s presence and I feel this could be a potential single because of him. A keeper.

Body Ache[s] is another OK song with an annoying club beat that tries to sound like Scream & Shout but fails. The lyrics are terrible. I would have left it out and gave it to Ke$ha.

Till It's Gone is a very good track. Overly repetitive but a good song nonetheless. I like the beat. The lyrics are relatable and can easily get stuck in your head to a point you may find yourself singing it in random moments. Definitely a keeper.

Passenger is an OK song. I like her vocals even though I think that high note is not Britney's. The lyrics are OK but it's nothing special. I don't know why people seem to like this song so much. I would've put it in the Deluxe Edition.

Chillin' With You. I cannot express how much I despise this song. This is Soda Pop 2.0 to me. The lyrics are written by a six years old and mean nothing at all, it's way too repetitive. Jamie Lynn's voice is boring. If Jessica Simpson and Ashlee Simpson recorded a song together this is what it would sound like. The beat is lame and I dislike everything about it. I would've left it out, never recorded it and not even brought it to the table.

Don't Cry is Femme Fatale's criminal. It stands out a little because of the whistles but then disappoints at the chorus. The lyrics are too cliché. It's a likeable song and definitely a good closing track.

Brightest Morning Star. I'm not against religion but I don't like it. I'm going to pretend it's about her kids and let it be a My Baby 2.0. Throw it out.

Hold On Tight is nothing special and falls short to impress me, even after a couple of listens I still don't know which part is the chorus. It's not a bad song but it's not a keeper either.

Now That I Found You is a nice track, the chorus sounds a lot like Avicii's Wake Me Up but it has its own life. I very much like this song and I would go as far as putting it in the Standard Edition.

There, I said it all.

Billy959
03-12-13, 22:28
I'll agree on just one thing:

Chillin' with you IS the new soda pop-I said it some pages back and I'm glad I'm not alone.

Sir Croft
04-12-13, 03:40
Welp, even though she wasn't exactly oozing energy during the FF tour, I'm pretty sure it was still rather exhaustive.
I'd love to see her perform as much as the next fan, the fact she killed the Work Bitch choreography only made me want to see her perform even more. But, for some reason, she won't. She did performances for Circus and FF, maybe there's a good reason why she's not performing now. Whatever it is, I don't think it's because she doesn't want to work (bitch).

MyRaider4Life
04-12-13, 03:43

This album has no Britney spark for me; it's 75% filler songs. All her other albums had this element that made it BRITNEY, even Femme Fatale. This is nothing spectacular.

Shes just plain lazy and dull if you ask me
Yeah, I guess she should just walk it off and forget all the **** she's been through, right?
That kind of stuff leave permanent scars on people. And she doesn't play the victim, you don't even see her talk about it (unlike other artists who would love to keep talking about the controversy they created themselves), but she has the right to not feel like being the center of attention anymore. She's been there, she got **** for it. She does what she loves, she makes her music, she goes on tours, she makes music videos and if that's how she wants to work, then great.
Not whoring herself to the press at every given opportunity does not make Britney lazy.

For those who are disappointed, I have a bit of advice that has helped me through difficult stan times lol. You can take it or leave it and I'm not saying you can't have an opinion different than mine, but just hear me out on this one.

The secret to why I'm a happy Britney stan is because I stopped expecting things from Britney a long time ago. At first I was disappointed that she no longer cared about her career as much as she used to, but I came to accept it for what it is. It saves me from a lot of disappointment because I only take what she gives instead of constantly expecting more. Me getting upset over no promo is only hurting me and it won't change a thing.

I was tired of being disappointed all the time and not being able to enjoy anything she does. I knew that despite having a lot of expectations, I would have to put them aside if I wanted to remain a fan (which I did). I can look back at the past and appreciate it for what it was and I can also look at where she is now and be at peace with it. She still makes great music and I think she's a genuine and caring person. Those things are enough for me now.

I know that's really hard for everyone who feels like they've grown up with her their whole life and supported her for so long. We all want her to succeed and be the best she can be, but for Britney, "the best she can be" no longer applies to her work, as unfortunate as it is for us.

Britney sees her career as a job now. She reached the top, she crashed and burned, and then she had a successful comeback. She's seen it all now. She no longer feels the need to grow as an artist, reinvent her image, or even really promote like she used to. She does what she feels comfortable because she doesn't need to work like she used to.

While I'm disappointed with her lately (as I stated above), I would just like to point out that I still adore her and seeing her in Vegas is still something I would love to experience (although, I'm broke so I probably won't be able to). Plus, she's not my only lazy queen. :pi:

I disagree, she doesnt have to be vocal about it to be considered a victim. Im talking about the fact that shes in that damn conservatorship and doesnt give two ****s about getting out?? I mean we dont know what exactly goes on behind closed doors but I feel like its pretty obvious that she doesnt really plan on getting out anytime soon. Its weird to me because shes 32 and cant make a single decision on her own yet doesnt seem to care about changing that? Madonna was abused and raped when she was young yet that hasnt stopped her from giving it her all and advancing artisticly. Thats what Im talking about, Britney is stuck as "the girl that has a dad who makes decisions for her" and that will ALWAYS be an excuse that comes to no promo and performances that have zero energy.. Oh lets not forget shes a mom so like you know, its impossible for her to actually have a career because you know EVERY mom in hollywood does the same?? Whatever.

I made peace with the fact that she will never go back to what she used to be and I enjoy the music for what it is, its just frustrating when people do put her down and yet you cant prove that she is this great pop star because even she doesnt give a single **** about her career so how are fans supposed to??

I have given up trying to understand the conservatorship a while ago. At first she wasn't happy about it (FTR shows so, at least), maybe now she's ok with, maybe she still just copes with, maybe she gave up trying to fight something she can't beat. As for how Madonna reacted to her struggles, people are different. Madonna has always been this strong, no-nonsense woman, from day one. Someone who's released American Life at the time it was released and still not give a **** about the backlash needs to have a thick skin. Maybe Britney isn't like that, maybe she's scared to face the monster again. It's a subject we'll never be sure about, and I can't criticize her for that. Do I wish she did better? Yes. Do I want her to see her as excited about her career as she was back in her prime? Hell, yes! But I think if she's happy the way she is now, that's ok.
I, honestly, couldn't care less about what other people say about her. She's damned if she does and damned if she doesn't, she might as well just do her thing.

The key is to not care about her career, her "legend status", her brand, etc. Britney makes music because it's fun and it keeps her time occupied. Honestly, if she lost all of her fame tomorrow, I think she'd be fine with it, maybe even happier lol. I know how discouraging it is to see other people drag Brit for not caring about her career, but you just have to shrug it off. I got out of the whole stanning thing a long time ago. I appreciate what Britney gives me, not what other expect out of her. I'd rather Brit be happy with a dwindling career, than for her to be back on ITZney level and be as unhappy as she was back then.

I know this doesn't come easy btw, especially when we've all dedicated such a huge amount of time into supporting Britney, but I think it's something all fans have to accept eventually if they want to remain somewhat sane. :p

I really loved this write up about both Britney Jean and Britney herself. A bit long, but worth the read imo.

Britney Spears teased that ‘Britney Jean’ is her most personal album yet. It’s not. At all. And she may be the only person left who can get away with that.

Who is Britney Spears?

It’s been 20 years since the pop supernova first came into our lives as a spunky Mousketeer. It’s been 15 since the pigtailed teen danced through the halls of a high school in a Catholic school uniform. And we still don’t know.

Spears’s latest album, Britney Jean, comes at a peculiar point in her career, when a feverishly anticipated Vegas residency and general “aw-we-love-her” goodwill cements the fact that we have deified her as one of the elite pop goddesses. But as we bow down to worship at the altar of BritBrit, we also recognize that Spears may be the last of those divine divas. We’re in an age now when we want to know our pop stars. We want to relate to their humanity rather than gape at their untouchable infallibility.

Britney Jean wisely winks to that desire, but in the end fails to deliver any meaningful insight into who this Britney Jean person is. But it does give us what we still want from Britney Spears, the Last of Our Pop Goddesses: nonsensical, addicting…and only vaguely revealing pop scripture.

Spears has built a career as the ultimate tease. She’s bared all, sure. At the same time, she’s bared nothing at all.

An emotionally insulated teenager, “Britney Spears” was long just a mouthpiece robotically reciting Jive Record’s idea of “pop star” to the press. She quickly took up permanent residence on tabloid covers—a personal life with all the turbulence of a JetBlue flight through a tornado helped with that—without having to even say anything. I mean she said things, sure. But even when, say, holding a press conference to announce that she intends to remain a virgin until marriage, Spears’s revelations had all the intimacy and emotional honesty as…revelations made during a rehearsed and staged press conference.

Now, Spears is 32 and still releasing music. The landscape has changed from when pop stars were treasured monuments safely separated from gawking public by gatekeepers and security tape, should anyone accidentally tarnish the singing artifacts by catching a glimpse of—and then telling the world about—their imperfections. Baring souls and exposing warts is no longer a cathartic exercise reserved solely for singer songwriters and soul chanteuses. The industry’s most commercial stars now market themselves in 140-character confessions, public displays of vulnerability, and tracks that are as emotionally naked as the women who perform them.

It’s no surprise that, cannily securing relevance decades after the pop movement she helped usher in was dismissed as disposable, Spears is responding to the industry shift by releasing what she calls her “most personal album ever :).” The result, though, is peek-a-boo music, 10 songs that gingerly peel back the curtain justthismuch to give the smallest insight into who Britney Spears is. But, really, by the time Britney Jean ends, the most intimate revelation is that Jean is Britney’s middle name. Because it says so in the title.

It shouldn’t be surprising that an album that counts a song titled “Work Bitch” as its leadoff single isn’t exactly a penetrating musical therapy session. It also doesn’t matter. “Work Bitch” is great! And so is the rest of Britney Jean, a top-to-bottom effortlessly listenable record with no Gaga-esque pretension to reinvent the concept of pop music, Cyrus-esque (foam) middle finger to the idea of pop music, or Perry-esque cartoonification of pop music.

It’s just straightforward pop music, and that’s just fine.

“Work Bitch” was, however, a bit of false advertising for the album that would follow. With its whirring bees nest production, jackhammer driving beat, campy lyrics, and Spears’s gloriously idiotic British accent, the song hinted at something more exciting than what Britney Jean ends up offering: a pop star who gets it, the idea that pop music can, and maybe should, be silly. It’s the way Miley Cyrus—stop clutching your pearls—gets it. It’s the way Lady Gaga practically parades around with a neon sign that flashes, “Hi everyone, I get it! See!!!???”

Weird, sexy, and aggressive as it is, “Work Bitch” is just a quirky one-off treat on Britney Jean. The album’s second single “Perfume,” a moody stalker fantasy, and the appealing folktronica opener “Alien” are far better representations of the tone of Britney Jean. Still, the former, about a love triangle so torturous Spears feels paranoid enough to mark her man with her own scent (presumably one of her own signature fragrances), and the latter, about how she “always felt like a stranger in a crowd,” are more personal in concept more than they are insights into Spears’s psyche.

They do, however, feature Spears—wait for it—singing! Like for real for real singing, not speak-singing into an Auto-Tune machine that distorts her voice into an alarming, digital frog-sounding disaster. You can actually hear her voice and, with it, some actual emotion, particularly on the wistful closing track, “Don’t Cry.”

Britney Jean has more playful, and even skillful, vocal tricks and ticks than any of Spears’s post-meltdown albums, a welcome reminder of what Spears made her name on in the first place: a unique voice. (She really has one!) Thee was the Lolita sultriness in the vocal fry of the “oh bab-ay bab-ay” on “…Baby One More Time;” the growling sweetness of “Sometimes;” and the lilting carnality of her voice on “Oops!…I Did it Again” and “Slave 4 U.” The thinness of her voice on “Everytime” is what gives it its aching emotional resonance.

Spears was never a strong vocalist. But she was always an interesting one.

In fact, Britney Jean is least enjoyable when Spears, on occasion, reverts to the Auto-Tune crutch. The distorted vocals on “It Should Be Easy,” which features Will.i.am, sound about as dated as, well, a song that features Will.i.am. The dance-floor banger is a nondescript cacophony of beats dropping and crescendos and otherwise noisy production that distract from lyrics about why love has to be so complicated.

But “It’s Should Be Easy” does set off a run of three more club tracks that, though they have a tendency to meld together on a casual listen into one mutant megatrack, are all markedly stronger. “Tik Tik Boom” has Spears cooing provocatively—her sweet spot—about getting busy (“Not too slow and not too quick/ Baby make me tik tik”), though the production could use a more aggressive thrust. (Heh.) “Body Ache” continues the sex sprint, this time with a more energetic, stuttering beat and titillating guttural delivery from Spears.

“Til It’s Gone” is sweatier than the album’s other dance tracks, a power surge of raunch that explodes into an EDM-inspired dance-party finale. You’d half expect sparks to rain from the sky by the end of the endorphin-building bridge.

“Til It’s Gone” leads into “Passenger,” segueing into the wind-down portion of the album. Co-written by Katy Perry and Sia, it’s the most vulnerable of Britney Jean’s tracks: “It’s hard to jump with no net, but I’ve jumped and got no regrets.” It’s also the best of the album’s midtempo songs. The less said about “Chillin With You,” a duet with her sister that’s supposedly meant to drive home the “this is personal” message, the better. Britney discusses her preference for red wine. Jamie Lynn is more of a white wine girl. It’s more #confessional than “confessional.”

Let’s make that three things, then, that we now know about Britney Spears. Her middle name is Jean. She likes red wine. And she’s still capable of churning out a great, if not revolutionary, pop record. At 32 and after 20 years in the business, maybe that’s all we need to know about Britney Spears, our Last Goddess. Amen.

I was just listening to her old stuff and GOD she has some masterpieces(even some that don't get recognized)

I will be there,Can't make you love me,What U see is what U get,Lonely,Cinderella(always loved this one),bombastic love,someday,I run away, and many many more!

crazy(the stop remix) is still awesome after all these years!

I think that's part of the reason she's still "Britney Spears"! She has a legacy none of these new artists will ever have,she evolved

too bad her voice suffered so much autotune and effects in the process 'cause she CAN sing;

Britney Jean is a step in the right direction,her albums used to have that "britney" thing that the recents ones (cough-FF-cough) lacked a lot;

I'm going to ignore the ocean of 'SO DISAPOINTED, IZ NOT A FAN ANYMOAH!!' posts because if you still haven't learned that setting your expectations too high when it comes to Britney is asking for a massive disappointment then I have nothing to tell you. We've all waited for that amazing comeback performance, we've all waited for her to dance like back in the old days and we've all hoped she'd try to sing live AT LEAST ONCE after she returned but none of this ever happened and most importantly, none of this is EVER going to happen. Learn that and stop waiting for the impossible.

That being said...

So...

I was just listening to her old stuff and GOD she has some masterpieces(even some that don't get recognized)

I will be there,Can't make you love me,What U see is what U get,Lonely,Cinderella(always loved this one),bombastic love,someday,I run away, and many many more!

crazy(the stop remix) is still awesome after all these years!

My favourite non-single masterpieces are as follows:

BOMT - I Will Be There

OIDIA - :( It's a good album overall but excluding the singles, the other songs are just ok sry.

Britney - Anticipating, Let Me Be, Bombastic Love (this album deserves more credit than it gets)

In the Zone - Breathe On Me, Early Mornin', Touch of My Hand, Shadow, Brave New Girl

Hands down, the !BEST!™ ALBUM BRITNEY EVER RELEASED. Ever since I listened to it as a kid I consider this to be the best pop record I ever had the chance to listen to. It is amazing, her vocals are on point, she was involved in the writing process... No other albums compare (ItZ > Blackout, I'm sorry guuurls).

Blackout - Radar. Lol no, I'm just trolling :p Probably Freakshow, Toy Soldier and Get Back.

Circus - Obviously Unusual You and Blur, Mannequin, Lace and Leather & Rock Me In.

It's a great record but I overplayed it so much that I barely listen to it these days :p

Femme Fatale - Imma be a lil' Shell Fish, be a lil' Shell Fish.

Alien is just amazing. I can't get it out of my head since the first listen. Best Britney song since If U Seek Amy.

Seconded! :D

I lvoe Circus,but the main issue is that after track 7 the album falls in quality,the bonus tracks should replace the ones in the album as much I like the ones we got.

Rock Me In(LOVE THIS ONE),Amnesia,Rock Boy,Phonography and Trouble:

all great tracks!

I also love "Everybody" from Blackout,just wish her voice wasn't so autotuned,but then,it wouldn't be a blackout song :p

From FF the only tracks I still like are HIAM and the bonus,selfish and scary being my favs.

I do like what you've done but I think the clubby bit after 'body ache' suffers from the verses now which have been, in my mind, improved. The verses now have more momentum than the bridge which is probably the bit you're supposed to dance to till your body ache... and it's just not happening.

I think the Original Doll material is really overrated and dull. I think peoples' judgement is clouded by the fact that it was never released so it's become better than it had because of what it could have been. I don't know how far a long a lot of the Original Doll material was but I think had it been released as we have it now it wouldn't have been a very well recieved album; especially after the high quality of ITZ.

I kind of see Blackout as the result of what people assume would have become Original Doll.

Blackout may not be what people expected from that album but essentially everything leads up to that album.

A lot of the tracks that leaked between In The Zone and Blackout which were considered for inclusion on Blackout have the same vibe as songs that were officially released during the time of Mona Lisa and the first Original Doll announcement, such as To Love Let Go and All That She Wants, and we know even older songs were being considered for Blackout, such as Tell Me What You're Sippin' On which was first recorded for In The Zone, so there's no reason to believe songs like Just Yesterday and Rebellion weren't contenders too. In fact, the intro to Rebellion was played in her car at the same time she skipped over Untitled Lullaby/Baby Boy to play State of Grace both considered for Blackout.

I honestly couldn't disagree more. I don't see how anything meant for original doll could become or be on Blackout. Most of original doll material was quite urban and vocally more bubblegum than what Blackout was. For some reason loads of people consider Blackout urban which I really don't understand, it's more in the vein of electro in my opinion. I'd say a few tracks had a small urban influence.

So, apparently Britney Jean is predicted to sell around 120k... Putting her way behind some Garth Brooks box set and head to head with Duck Dynasty's Xmas album. I'm not surprised considering both of those are hillbilly friendly (most probably don't even know how to download an album tbh), but it's still sad to see. I guess the bright side is that with zero promotion (and most people not even knowing she has a new album out), it will sell better than alot of artists. Silver lining :/ lol

I'd agree with you on alot of interviews, but not this one. In a room full of strangers and cameras I can get why she'd be shy and stick to rehearsed stuff, but this was done at home with people she knows so it seems a lot more relaxed.

Plus if PR were going to be telling her to gush about any video/song it would be her talking about Work Bitch or Perfume since those are the recent singles that need the promotion. :p

That image implies Britney Jean is not a good album, when it is. The problem with fans is that, a lot of times, they only really enjoy the music when everybody else does too.

For instance, I really remember reading a lot of negative feedback regarding Scream & Shout. Then it proved to be Britney's biggest hit in years, and suddenly it's "flawless". If Britney Jean sold millions on its first week, a lot of those people would be posting the numbers everywhere they could along with "Yaaas" or "Slay!".

Truth is fans don't know what they want. They asked for a personal album, they asked for Vocalsney and no Autotuney. They got what they wanted. But, hey, it's not a massive hit, so, clearly, that's not what they want anymore...

Fans were also turned off by the fact that Britney didn't WERK it at all...

You can rehearse all you want for your Vegas show, if you ain't promoting it, ain't nobody gonna go see it.

There are no excuses about contractual issues forcing her not to perform outside the venue... If anything, that was Britney's team choice, and probably her idea. I don't know how Planet Hollywood would tell her: ''Hey Brit, we don't want you to perform outside our venue because we might lose customers. I mean, it's clear that if you show just a little bit of your talent, that people won't buy the tickets. We urge you not to''.

She needs to understand that doing half-assed things are not gonna bring her anywhere.

Try to justify Britney's talent when others in the industry such as Beyoncé and GaGa slay the **** out of her, in every aspect. The last time I really saw the real Britney live was during the Circus era. She slayed a lot of performances, but unfortunately that time has come and gone. You want to lipsynch, I don't currrr, go for it, but no ****ing hairflips. WERK. DANCE. FEEL. AND SLAY.

I watched Beyoncé's Revel DVD yesterday, and let's say Brit is just ridiculous next to her. Ridiculous. I think she still has it, she just needs to be more confident, but enough of that pity talk. Girl needs to bring it.

Sley a bit, sistren Britanny. For your sake.

I'm pretty sure the rumor was that at the end she was going to kill the guy and the girl, and the girl would end up being her. Basically showing us that all the moments between him and the other girl were all in her head, and in the end her crazy jealousy drove her to destroy a perfectly fine relationship.

Knowing this, I hate the Perfume video. Britney looks good, but I am pissed her or her team disagreed with Joseph Kahn and went with a cut to **** version.

Okay, just to add some variety to all this negative mess and bad karma that is the general Britney Spears thread...

Britney Jean IS a really good (or shall I say 'cool' :vlol:) record. It has grown on me unbelievably and Work Bitch has to be the best firstingle of hers ever. I love the song, I love the video and she killed the choreography. Dat song so deserved to slay and yet.... well, the power of promotion.

As for the album flopping more than Bionic, it was bound to happen but I don't think it'll damage her name or something. Come on, this woman has been through public humiliation and 24/7 breakdowns and YET she's still around releasing albums. Y'all acting like it's 2007 and it's the Gimme More performance all over again. For God's sake this is the Legendary Miss Britney Spears™. She's already a legend, one flop album or not. One album flopping won't kill her career at this point, she can afford it. Either way, have you honestly expected her to slay for the rest of her life? I mean come on, there had to be a point in her career when this would happen.

As for the Perfume video... It's boring, it's unoriginal, it's just a typical Britney ballad video. She's extremely hot though. I also wish RCA hadn't sabotage the video but there's nothing we can do. I think we should be lucky we actually got the video with Britney's lack of interest in promotion.

Lenochka
10-12-13, 22:55
I supported her in 2007 and believed in her. I figured once she got stuff sorted she would return and actually try, but she isn't. She never will because she doesn't care. Her career is now just a job, and her fans are just random faces she doesn't even remember or see as individuals. Have you seen her meet and greet pics? The story's of the awkward 25-30 seconds people payed around $1,000 for? We are her meal ticket, and that's it. She can't even try to make us happy with performances, promotion or anything at this point. We are just expected to stick around and buy her albums. She cared about us and her career at one point, but it's obvious those days are long gone. We built what she has with her as fans. We bought her albums and gave her the life she lives now, the least she could do is not leave it in shambles like it meant absolutely nothing. I'll always love Britney as a person, but as of right now she is a sad excuse for a performer.

Yeah, I'm hoping when I see her in Vegas she will impress me. All I want from her is effort, and not even the amount of effort we get from Beyonce or Gaga. Just maybe not have all her routines be arm movements and extremely fast editing to hide the fact that she probably didn't get the choreo all that well as a whole. (I'm looking at you Work Bitch lol)

BJ is a flop, Britney is a washed up hasbeen, a lazy flop. Done. Over. Throw her in the trash.
She can't come back from this, she can't even get a top 10 album on a quiet week in the UK.<3 heheheh

Now, now! We didn't give up on J.Lord after the mega flop that was Brave. There's no reason to sudden bail because the album's flopping. http://i.imgur.com/zIh8fuS.gif

EDIT: Just saw the white text lol. Now I'm the flop! :p

I'm not saying Britney Jean is not a good album but I'm not the type of Britney fan to sit there and just sugar coat stuff.

Circus was much more of a true personal album than Britney Jean and there was no big deal made about circus being that sort of an album.

I've supported Britney alot (still do) and defended her In the past when I was younger.

Long story short Britney Jean is a good album but it's not truly personal it's sugar coated.

I liked femme fatale better than circus circus was pretty good too and so is britney jean. I'd rank those 3 albums like:
1.Britney Jean
2.Femme Fatale
3.Circus

;6958928']Work Bitch has to be the best firstingle of hers ever.

Baby One More Time, Oops, Slave 4 U, Me Against The Music, Gimme More, Womanizer, and Hold It Against Me all disagree with you.

oh wait that's literally all of her other lead singles wow how silly of me or maybe Work Bitch is just really mediocre

[Xmas]
11-12-13, 17:55
Baby One More Time - a classic no doubt but wouldn't stand a chance nowadays
Oops - the video always slayed but the song itself is just ok
Slave 4 U - perfection
Me Against The Music - when I'm in the mood it's really good but when I'm not it's totally meh
Gimme More - a great song ruined by a weird video with Britney wearing a wig so shiny it makes me blind
Womanizer - a boring generic comeback single with video that's basically a watered down version of Toxic
Hold It Against Me - a decent song that is too overhyped imo & the video is so good that it doesn't match the song at all.

Work Bitch has it all, a great song + a great video. If there's another lead single of that kind I have to admit that's Slave 4 U :p

So let me correct myself, "one of the two best lead singles".

all of these are just my irrelevant personal opinions, values & convictions

Work Bitch was good from the get-go and the music video only made it better. I think it was the right choice for a lead single.

Perfume, on the other hand... :pi:

Passenger would have slayed, if it would have been the first single. It's such a free spirit anthem... It shows a more mature side, but still a fun side. Work Bitch! could have followed.

I love it so much. Probably one of the best songs to be released this year, hands down.

Work Bitch is actually one of my favourite tracks of Britney Jean...

...which kinda says a lot about the album. It's okay, to be sure, but I think it falls flat in comparison to all her other ones.

BOMT has that incredibly charming 90's cheese going for it, and it gave us timeless classics such as Soda Pop and E-Mail My Heart. Britney was very solid and fun, with Oops being like a bridge between the two. In The Zone is amazingness and no other opinions will ever be considered, Blackout is hideously overrated but still definitely great, Circus is pretty cool and awesome and cool and very cool, and Femme Fatale is, well, Femme Fatale.

...yeah, so there's all that... and then Britney Jean, which just made me go "why should I be listening to this????????".

Depends on what you consider to be far;

1. Blackout
2. Circus
3. Britney
4. In the Zone
5. Femme Fatale
6. Oops
7. BOMT
8. Boringney Jean

Well, 8 isn't far from three I guess.

Nah, 2007 she had the excuse of being crazy. Now she is just lazy, so I don't blame anyone (including myself, of course) for being negative about this crap era. :p
I don't even mind that she's lazy; she's been lazy for a long time in certain aspects and I'm sure she's not even singing parts of songs on Britney Jean if I'm honest. It's the fact that she launched the album with a song called 'work bitch' then did nothing, the album being really lazy and said it was personal yet we find out nothing more about her on it that annoys me. It's the masquerade that's the worst. We know she's lazy and we find it kind endearing so why hide it?

Yeah,i agree on blackout! It's good,but not her best.

Is not a gem of good songs.

Imo,britney is still one of her best,it's mature,solid and her vocals are good.
ITZ is good too because is very different in many aspects,there is variety.

Britney Jean is also very good,except for the dance tracks,that I don't listen too much,but they're still good.

Anything is better than "boys" for the record tho.

I think I'd have to go with Blackout; it's the one I enjoy most and the one I think has aged best. Britney is odd; half of it is very 90s pop becoming 2000s pop but the rest seems really ahead of it's time; songs like When I found you, Before the goodbye and What it's like to be me all seem like they'd be at home on Britney Jean today. In the zone has better production than Britney and continues the mature theme but as an album, or a Britney album rather, I enjoy it less than any of the others... with the exception of BOMT and now BJ.


6. Boring Ache
8. Boringer

And why does she keep making director's cuts of videos and not releasing them? Are they just becoming some mean easter egg teasers for the era?

The original cut had a very different ending, according to Joseph Kahn. The scenes were cut by RCA's request and we got what we got, which is still cool, but not what it could've been.
I hope we get to see Kahn's original cut, I mean, seriously. If it makes the video better, just release it.

It kind of has that feel, yes. Even without all the murder and stuff, it feels like that's what he was going for. Criminal had Jason as Britney's love interest, Perfume is about Jason, the guy in Perfume looks like Jason...
