Britney Spears | She’s Back!

OVER A DECADE AGO, SHE EMERGED AS A TEEN MUSIC SENSATION—THE VERY DEFINITION OF SEXY, EXUBERANT POP IN OUR AGE OF EXCESS, AND THE TEMPLATE FOR A LEGION OF IMITATORS. BUT BRITNEY WAS NO FLASH IN THE MILLENNIAL PAN. THROUGH CRISIS AND CONTROVERSY, SHE HAS ADHERED HERSELF  TO OUR CONSCIOUSNESS SIMPLY BY DOING WHAT SHE DOES BEST: CRAFTING IRRESISTIBLY DANCEABLE, INSTANTLY UNFORGETTABLE HITS, OVER AND OVER (AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER) AGAIN. IN 2011, BRITNEY IS STILL BRITNEY, AND SHE’S BACK WITH AN ALBUM DESIGNED TO GET US MOVING. AGAIN

****

Britney Spears, the sweetest girl who ever emerged from McComb, Mississippi, is once again on a mission to make us dance. This spring, the greatest pop star of our generation returns with Femme Fatale, a suite of hits destined for good times, late nights, and heavy clubland rotation. Filled with brazen, sexual lyrics against an aggressive, Euro-style beat, the album’s first single, “Hold It Against Me,” shot to number one in nineteen countries within hours of its release in January. The fans, it seems, have been waiting. At age 29, Spears has achieved a level of fame and notoriety that might make continued success an easy prospect. Yet she remains anything but asleep at the wheel. Fatale finds Spears in control of her image and her sound, building on a decade-strong brand of feel-good pop. If we love Spears (and we undoubtedly do), it’s because she’s a constant reminder of the fun and freedom we’ve enjoyed, and a harbinger of sunny days ahead. She is good times preserved in amber. We don’t ever want her to change. She’s perfect just the way she is.

  1. The concept is interesting but the results are less than stellar IMO.

  2. Mo- Great observation! If we could only know what goes on in Mario Testino’s head! ;) Definitely a different take for him.
