It took five reporters and one erudite writer to cobble together Entertainment Weekly's cover Britney Spears think piece and this is what they came up with: "Spears has become a nonstop content provider whose every move is dissected, chewed up, and spit out ad nauseam. We treat her using the same instructions you'd find on the back of a shampoo bottle: Squeeze her into an impossible situation, lather up a media frenzy, rinse off the residue of the ensuing scandal, and repeat." Okay, but no one does that. No one actually "repeats." Shampoo is not something your hair is like "Gimme More" about. Everyone knows this. In other news, "Gimme More" is doing hysterically well on the charts and radio stations though it's not on iTunes until October 3. If any of you copyright-infringing commenters wants to explain how "leak blogs" work , please do; we had to get our copy of the song from Idolator's Maura and OMG it is good. [Entertainment Weekly]
I must say I like the song, and in my head, it always morphs into ABBA's "Gimme Gimme Gimme a Man After Midnight" which isn't necessarily a bad thing.
I am beginning to think that crappy performance might actually be the best thing that ever happened to her. She's an ever bigger story now and people are starting to feel sorry for her. I will actually buy the album because I am pissed off the people called her fat. If anyone had told me two years ago that I'd be buying a Britney album, I would have slapped them.
I am a Wilco/Ryan Adams girl, for Christ's sake. And I say GIMME MORE BRITNEY!
