So the latest Entertainment Weekly arrived in our mailbox a few days ago, and lo and behold, Britney Spears is on the cover. That really pissed me off. Britney Spears pushes my buttons--the wrong ones. It drives me crazy that this no-talent, faker than fake "singer" gets so much attention. Maybe if we ignored her, she'd disappear. I know, wishful thinking.
I'm sorry, but taking off one's clothes and doing staged "lesbian" kisses do not a talented singer make. I have nothing against lesbians, but that stupid, exploitative kiss was clearly just meant to titillate and garner her a little more attention. "Oooh, I can't sing, but let me make out with Madonna on tv so I can extend my 15 minutes of fame!"
And if I have to hear that "this is the real Britney" or "I'm all grown up now" crap one more time... She's just one huge, gimmicky publicity stunt, which would be fine except for the fact that she supposedly wants to be taken seriously as an "artist." Honey, this isn't the way to do it.
Give it a couple years, and she'll be doing porn flicks. That's my view of her career trajectory, anyway.
Now all that having been said, I get that some people like her; we all have our guilty pleasures. But for me, Britney Spears just isn't one of them.
