Britney Spears’ Next Big Hit

by | 6th, January 2007

HAPPY New Year, Britney Spears.

Or “BRITNEY FEARS”, as the Mirror’s front page skilfully manipulates her name to.

But the paper’s headline might be little misleading. There is only one fear and it is whether “booze binges” are wrecking Britney’s career.

And this is Britney’s career as what? It seems that an age has passed since Britney dressed as a schoolgirl and asked her baby to hit her one more time.

Back then Women danced, men shifted uncomfortably in their chairs and pre-teenage girls were given hope that an ordinary looking girl could have a boyfriend who hits her and become a star.

But now Britney is older. “Her face appears bloated,” notes the Mirror, “a far cry from the pretty schoolgirl look that used to drive fans wild.”

Britney looks older because she is older. She looks like any number of women of her age. If Britney cares to strap herself back into her school uniform, she could pass for a young woman reliving her youth at a nostalgic School Disco party.

But some expect more from Britney. Aren’t stars rewarded so handsomely because they are above the norm, exceptional talents who entertain the untalented? We all pay a small sum and Britney grows rich enough to dedicate herself to her art.

Many are disappointed to see her in such a state. Haven’t they paid for Britney’s stylist, detox therapist and minder? How did she end up in such a state on New Year’s Eve?

So when Britney was taken outside club Pure in Las Vegas after becoming tired and emotional, some gave full throat to their pain. “Whore, whore, whore,” they chanted.

The paper reports on how the singer was later spotted repeating “I love myself”.

The Mirror fails to say whom Britney was saying this affirmation to. Perhaps she was talking to us, the people who put her where she is today?

Perhaps Britney will tell us. Please be upstanding for the Princess of pop, as told to her official website:

Dear Fans,

It has been a while since I’ve addressed you personally here on my official website. The last couple of years have been quite a ride for me, the media has criticized my every move and printed a skewed perception of who I really am as a human being. Behind every decision I have made in my public life there always seems to be an apparent contradiction. I have come to terms with that which is why I usually don’t pay much attention to it.

The last couple of years have been very enlightening for me and now that I’ve had the time to be “me,” I’ve been able to sit down and think about where I want to go with myself as an entertainer with absolutely no strings attached. I am now more mature and feel like I am finally “free.” I’ve been working so hard on this new album and I can’t wait for you all to hear it and to go on tour again! I would like to exclusively tell you that I am working hard to release the new album sometime later this year, but the date is of course not certain yet.

I look forward to coming back this year bigger and better than ever, and to also reaching out to my fans on a more personal level. I noticed today that one of my biggest fansites is shutting down soon and I want you all to know that I do understand all the reasons that went behind making that decision, and I am sad to see it closing. If I were you I’d be unhappy too if I had to read what I’ve been reading every day. But trust me, I get it. I know I’ve been far from perfect and the media has had a lot of fun exaggerating my every move, but I want you all to know that I love my fans so much, and I appreciate everything you have done for me, so Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
