    Re: What do you think of Britney Spears?

    Music icon - really?

    Here are my thoughts. She is absolutely a uselss pop star who will have zero impact as the years progress. She was the perfect jail bait pop star who made money for fat executives and served as kiddie porn for the middle school set. Myley Cyrus now has that title. Katy Perry and Lady Gaga have taken the audience that Spears could of had.

    Now let's bury her career and move on. Hopefully Justin Timberlake will follow in his ex's footsteps.

    Re: What do you think of Britney Spears?

    I hear a lot of buzz about the new album, but you always hear that about most new releases. I think the fans of her generation a decade ago have moved on from her, most look at her in the same light as a Lindsey Lohan now. 

    The buzz is there, but does she have it in her to be as big as she once was...we'll see. Not sure if she can get back to that level. 

    This will have to be one huge hit record, with a couple of top 10's or a #1. Tall order!

    Ten years ago she had it, and then she became a freak side show and it became fashionable to bash her. People don't like to be duped twice, that is why this needs to be bigger then anything she has done in the past, for her to become as relevant as she was a decade ago. I don't see it but good luck.

    About the only thing I can say for her is that I give her some credit for (apparently) turning her life around and resurrecting her career.  Because she looked to be headed for an early grave for awhile there.  I feel the same way about Lindsay Lohan...I hope she can straighten herself out before its too late, simply because she's a human being with people who care for her.

    One word: "Crossroads"

    Not only did the movie su(k)k bad, but it stole the name of a far better movie about the blues and featuring some fine guitar playing by both Ry Cooder and Steve Vai....

    Yeah - Mommy and Daddy certainly care about Lindsey. Her Mommy uses her as a fashion accessory and her daddy tries to use her as a credit card.

    Just f'n sad.

    she never had the voice that aguilera has had since they were both mouseketeers

    she does have a perfectly symmetrical face though, and she looked good enough in a schoolgirl outfit when she started out...

    serious production and a gifted team of pop songwriters used britney spears as a vehicle, and she almost drove herself to the point of no return.

    Yeah, with lovely parents like that, it's not much of a surprise that she might have some issues.

    I think of her as that person who replaced Michael Jackson and Madonna as front page news on every issue of the National Enquirer but soon will be replaced by Lady Gaga and Justin "Leave it to Beiber"....unless this has already happened. I wouldn't know, I don't read that rubbish or listen to any of those "artists."

    I think Newman summed it up well.  She was a phenom on the music scene then blew it as she became a "side show freak."  Can anyone return from that?  I don't really think so unless the substance of their work is SO amazing they can't help but come back big.  I don't think her work qualifies (if her earlier hits are any indication of her max performance).

    Whenever I see Britney Spears, I always think about the photo where she displayed her episiotomy scar for all to see.

    I have never heard one song by Dribbler either, & I am sure he s*cks. But as Zilla says, when you are known more for the tabloid rags than the music, then that pretty much sums everything up.

    But you may not realize how weak the competition is in the music niche she's in, one I've become familiar with thanks to having to drive my 14-year old daughter all over the place.  On these stations they play the same 25 songs over and over, and most of them are as mindless and irritating as you could possibly imagine.  There is an artist called Kesha who has made it big with a string of songs about going out and partying all night.  Next to Kesha, Britney looks like Joni Mitchell.  Ok that's an exaggeration, but trust me, Britney is back to getting heavy airplay.

    A fair statement, indeed.  I'm not really listening to pop much these days since I stopped commuting in 2008.

    I usually try not to think of her at all,. But when I do I tend to think of her as a budding porn star.

    Re: What do you think of Britney Spears?

    As the resident Disco fan, I have no problem with Britney or any of the other young pop stars today. Every generation has had them, and they fill a niche for the youngsters to get their first taste of pop music. Sorry everybody, I just don't hate these young pop stars. They aren't really taking anything away from other performers. They have their own audience, as does every form of entertainment. I wish them success, as it often is very fleeting in their line of work.

    I agree with Hfxsoxnut:

    "About the only thing I can say for her is that I give her some credit for (apparently) turning her life around and resurrecting her career.  Because she looked to be headed for an early grave for awhile there.  I feel the same way about Lindsay Lohan...I hope she can straighten herself out before its too late, simply because she's a human being with people who care for her."
