  1. https://www.vanityfair.com/style/2021/02/britney-spears-mainstream-media-matt-lauer Do they noticed this kind of 'journalism' and behaviour now?..hypocrisy oscar is given to status quo media
  2. I get SO frustrated by people who keeps saying that “Wow, people were nasty to women and nasty about mental health in 2007, we have come such a long way today”. NO!! Just look at this recent article in The Daily Mail and the AWFUL comments!! People are still acting like blood hounds calling her crazy and defending that she lacks human rights! I tried to comment but my comments were never uploaded, I am fuming. WHY do people say that it was worse in 2007?! Wtf, society is exactly as misogynistic today! Just some minor, cosmetic changes. People have understood they shouldn’t ****-shame the length of a skirt and that bosses in particularly the entertainment industry can be creeps. Other than that, people are being horrible and the CORE is not changed!
  3. https://www.harpersbazaar.com/uk/culture/g35489023/10-famous-women-who-were-brutally-destroyed-by-the-press/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=news_tab&utm_content=algorithm Harpers bazzar UK listed the top ten Women destroyed by the media (unfortunately breathe heavy favorite lindsay Lohan didn't make the list cos outside the US, she was given a second chance). Britney spears is #1 and like this article states it led the media to reexamine everything they did wrong. Courtney love is #2 cos like it states she was everything a male rock star was and she was hated for it, cos she was female, from attacking Madonna, to doing drugs, and even being blamed for the death of her husband, and rumors as wild as she hired someone to kill Kurt Cobain, nobody outside Britney had sealed with the worse media other than Courtney love. And the fact is her own country never gave her a second chance, proves America is unforgiving sometimes cos people wanna better than themselves than be the punchline which Courtney was supposed to be. Jessica Simpson, from the manufactured virginity thing again, to weight gain, and battling alcoholism, Jessica had to deal with images crisis and people making fun of her faith and her lifestyle cos it's fun to make fun of people doing the exact opposite of everyone else like saving yourself for marriage, she was mocked for it and we all played a part in it.. Amy Winehouse, UK is to blame, nobody gave her a chance no wonder she went back to the drink, why try to win, when everybody doesn't believe in you. We are to blame for her untimely death, cos we didn't believe she could sober up. Janet Jackson, Who are we kidding on this one, it was obvious her downfall benefited from ***ism and hatred of her brother as well, we took Michael down,might as well take Janet down, and that we did, we destroyed the first family of Music when we took down both MJ and Janet at the same times They also take responsibility for what happened to Caroline flack and Jade goody.
  4. Whether this is in bad taste or not I am very interested in knowing who most people support regarding these two high profile cases claiming abuse and violence. Who do you support and what are your reasons? Is there a major difference in the two cases and what are they exactly?
  5. You can blame Madonna for creating the template for the modern day Blonde haired female dance pop act. But also please blame the media as well for also using this narrative. Kylie minogue, Dannii minogue, Gwen Stefani, Britney spears and of course Lady gaga went through the comparisons I understand your anger. But don't put all the blame on Madonna. Point that as well to the mainstream media. This isn't new. This has been going around since the 1980s. It's not likely to change. The comparisons at this point should be taken as a compliment not like oh god, what if she fails. Madonna is the blueprint for the modern day Pop star of a white Italian or blonde female. Just like How Mariah Carey is the standard of vocalists, and Like Janet Jackson is the standard of the African American female pop star.. I'm getting tired of the blame being on Madonna solely. When I truly believe that was never her intention at all. But the media will always create a standard. They just used her. And like I said it's been this way since the days of Paula Abdul in the late 80s. It's not likely to change.
  6. Writer Maggie Stiefvater revealed a well-known site was willing to pay her to start a fake feud with Taylor Swift. A writer for V who trashed her and her Reputation era also admitted he is a fan and was paid to trash her (which he accepted to pay for his mother's cancer bills). That got him dragged by Swifties. And justifiably so given what Taylor's mom is going through.
  7. I just saw this article posted yesterday: https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/music/story/2020-04-08/coronavirus-britney-spears-social-media-instagram it basically runs over britney's recent posts and is super positive about her. how her unfiltered posts are super refreshing when her peers have super calculate cleaned up posts, even calling it spacy yet in almost a good way. that's in stark contrast to "BRITNEY SPEARS SPARKS CONCERN FOR POSTING A PHOTO WHERE HER HAIR IS DIRTY: THIS IS THE 18TH TIME WE'VE PUBLISHED THIS SAME ARTICLE IN THE PAST YEAR" that we see a lot. it more or less is like, "she's quirky and it's lowkey refreshing, u go britney!". i've noticed the magazine also has defended her a lot and seems to be on her side generally. I remember during a project for a class last semester I actually used at least one of their articles for one of my main projects bc I wrote about Britney (the class was a composition society's approach to ethics and justice and etc and basically i wrote about her and questioned if it was ethical to keep Britney in the situation she's in). Do you think LA Times stans Britney? Or at least relative stanning when compared to how bought out other news outlets are when it comes to reporting trash lies about her. (i hope no one posted this yet bc i didn't see any posts of it...)
  8. Guys I don't know if you even seen/read this article, but it is regarding MJ 2005 trial and how media manipulated GP and kept showing MJ as a crazy. But I think it would be great to see such a article about Britney especially from 2004-2008 how they made GP to believe she is crazy same like MJ. And tell what you think of article! https://www.google.com/amp/s/m.huffpost.com/us/entry/610258/amp
  9. Has anyone else noticed that Britney Spears really doesn't do a whole lot of Press? Even after an album drops, she hardly does much promotion for it. If you go online and look up Britney Interviews, you'll realize that most of the majority of those interviews comes from 1999 through 2002. And then it gets very spotty. She's done an interview here and there throughout the years but for being as famous as she's ALWAYS BEEN, you'd think there would be many more interviews and press. She's only done SNL one time. And as far as late night shows and even daytime (ellen etc) only thing she really does is short skits. She went on the Ellen Degeneres Show a whIle back to sell her album Glory. But all she did was a comical skit with ellen. No sit down interview was part of it. The most recent sit down interview she did was the Jonathan Ross Show. I was surprised too see her do that as it was a pretty in depth, full length interview. But before that, it was years. it's just extremely unfortunate because I absolutely love her and would love to see more sit down talk with her. Maybe it's because of how open and trusting she's always been with us (the public) and after her meltdown and all the bad press and horrible things people said about her had an effect on her, like more then we know. Maybe it's why she doesn't do many interviews anymore. She also seems extremely shy and even a bit self cautious as the years have gone by. In her latest interview with Jonathan, she was extremely fidgety and uncomfortable much of the interview. Perhaps that's why she avoids doing these much? Her team probably forced her to do that interview because of the fact she hasn't done one in years before that. I don't know, just a bit sad because I wish their was more of her. Especially now that she's heathy, back on top and in a good place. I would love to see her address those years. Open up about what was going on and stuff, but of course, that's just nosy me. Lol any ideas???
  10. We all know that, but its a great praising article for gp with info about her records and all, im so here for it http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/pop/7534275/the-evolution-of-britney-spears? Britney Spears has earned her title as one of pop’s reigning queens. Since her early days as a Mouseketeer, the Louisiana-raised singer has pushed the boundaries of 21st century sounds, paving the way for a generation of artists to shamelessly embrace glossy pop and redefine how one can accrue consistent success in the music industry. From the time of her single-digit days, the now 34-year-old always had an itch for the spotlight, competing on Star Search and landing a coveted spot on The Mickey Mouse Club, which also counted Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera as cast members. After three years on the show, she turned her attention to recording songs, scoring a deal with Jive Records in 1997 to begin work on what would become her debut album, …Baby One More Time. Spears offered something different than her pop contemporaries on the LP, playing up a coy schoolgirl innocence and matching the image with unmistakably catchy tunes. It was an immediate hit: ...Baby One More Time debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in tandem with the title track crowning the Hot 100. It spawned numerous subsequent hits including “(You Drive Me) Crazy” and “Sometimes,” setting the framework for what was already a fruitful career. With a few tours under her belt, she chased her debut quickly with Oops!… I Did It Again, which arrived the following year. It sold a whopping 1.3 million copies in its first week, giving her the largest sales week for an album by a woman since Nielsen Music began tracking sales in 1991. It was a record that was only broken by Adele’s 25 in 2015, when it launched with 3.38 million. There was a shift occurring in both the music and her public image: She was sharper, sexier and singing about more grown-up fare, setting the stage for 2001’s Britney, which shed her innocent skin and ushered her into adulthood. Britney was steamy and looked good on Spears, who brought the lead single “I’m a Slave 4 U” to the MTV VMAs stage for an iconic rendition of the song while draping a snake around her neck. She graced the big screen in 2002’s Crossroads and continued her hot streak with 2003’s In the Zone, an extension of the futuristic sound of Britney featuring the instant classic “Toxic” and introspective ballad “Everytime.” Of course, her personal life has always been in the public eye, and Spears soon became a paparazzi target, sending her into a tailspin documented almost daily prior to the release of 2007’s Blackout, which many fans consider her best. But by the time she skated into 2008’s Circus and its excellent 2011 follow up Femme Fatale, Spears had shown she was fully dedicated to her craft and took even more chances—on the latter, which debuted atop the Billboard 200, she edged towards dance music, collaborating with certified hit makers including Benny Blanco, Max Martin and Shellback. Today, Spears remains at the top of her game and the music industry. She spends her time supplementing her Britney: Piece of Me residency in Las Vegas by spending time with her two children and releasing projects such as 2013’s Britney Jean and her most recent work Glory, which earned 111,000 equivalent-album units in sales during its first week. With her influence still strong and career in full throttle, Spears is testament to the idea that hard work and innovation are the keys to sustaining and growing a legacy.
  11. Long read, but I personally enjoy well-written articles, that observe the artist's career in the whole and shall i say its a praising one? http://www.thehindu.com/news/cities/mumbai/entertainment/daring-you-to-stand-in-her-way/article9171036.ece? Nine albums and countless public controversies later, Britney Spears is still going strong. Is she an icon of modern pop music? Oh, Britney. How are you still going? Britney Spears, are you bullet-proof; are you made of Teflon? What kind of a new-age-no-carbs diet are you on? Are you indestructible? It’s been far too many years. And here she is again, receiving almost unanimous rave reviews for Glory , her ninth (!) studio album. For so long, she’s been the set-up, and then she’s been the punchline. Well before music snobs started mocking fans of, say, Justin Bieber or Taylor Swift, they were insulting and ridiculing any person who admitted to liking Britney Spears’ music. But no. She’s kept at it, against all conventional wisdom, against vicious personal and professional attacks, against cyclical setbacks and lots of laughter at her expense. It seems churlish to suggest, but could Britney Spears actually be a pop music icon? Spearing our hearts Monday through Friday, right after kids reached home from school, Nikhil Chinapa used to host this show on MTV called MTV Select. People could call him, have their voices featured on air, and request a music video they wanted to watch (and hear). This was in the late ’90s. It was a superhit show. One particular video caught everyone’s attention, and got a lot of airtime. It featured a very young Britney Spears, full of pluck and bottle, dancing suggestively. The melody was unreasonably catchy, and classrooms all over the country had kids humming and singing, “Hit me baby/one more time”. In my own experience, around the teenage years of self-discovery, the guys were drawn to her appearance, while the girls admired her spirit. She was a legitimate sensation the day that song released, and it only got bigger from there. It sounds unbelievable when you calculate the numbers, but it’s been almost 20 years since ‘…Baby One More Time’ released (apparently one of the best-selling singles ever). That was 1998, a completely different world. Millennials (let’s just say people in their 20s and 30s) have made a living out of complaining about how quickly things have changed and fallen by the wayside: pagers, tapes/ CDs/ books/ any form of physical art, television, filmmaking, photography, blah-blah. They’ve experienced the shift in real-time, so the attachment to the past, nauseating as it may be (and this writer is guilty of it too), is stronger than in members of the youth born in the midst of the digital boom. Yet here we are, still talking about Britney Spears. It’s amazing, really. Making of a pop star Today, the average shelf-life of a pop star is half a decade or so. Actually, it’s always been so. Remember how popular Christina Aguilera used to be and how not-popular she is today? In those five years, you have to cram an entire lifetime of experiences. A breakout teenybopper hit catapulting you to stardom, after which comes a follow-up album that’s just as catchy. There also needs to be masala . A high-profile relationship with someone equally famous, and then a dramatic break-up. Perhaps an angry outburst on TV or a meltdown at an awards show. What about substance abuse? Maybe a DUI or two, followed by rehab. Prison, too, if it gets too bad. A feud with a rival pop star and then an experimental album. Finally, after everything, a comeback. And once you’re burnt out at the ripe old age of 23 or something, a gradual fade into irrelevance until you reinvent yourself. Pop music, by design, is supposed to be disposable. It’s produced to trigger instant, if temporary, gratification and short-term accessibility, surrounded by glamour and sparkle. The bubbly thrill and the novelty will soon wear off, as the next ‘pretty young thing’ walks on to the scene. That’s why the media (including the PR machine backing the artists) makes such a huge fuss about the personal life of pop stars. Because we, as consumers, can only listen to the music for so long; after that, we want a voyeuristic peek into the rich-and-famous and mentally-unstable lifestyle. It’s Britney, bi**h With Spears, all of that was exaggerated to an obscene degree. She was always lampooned and parodied, always fetishised and objectified. Her talent was questioned at every step, unlike many of her peers. Let’s not forget that this was a mere teenager catapulted to worldwide fame at a very early age. But each move of hers was scrutinised, and I do think there was a fair amount of sexism that informed all the hate directed at her. She was criticised for the way she looked and dressed. She was heavily body-shamed after a high-profile live performance at the 2007 Video Music Awards, for having put on a little weight and appearing a little dazed. And then came that mega Britney fan video, imploring everyone to “leave Britney alone!” There was a 55-hour marriage that was annulled, and some other marriages. Frequent breakdowns and battles with substance abuse. There was her Madonna complex, where she wanted to be just like her, and the much-discussed kiss. She even dabbled with kabbalah briefly. Motherhood happened. She shaved off her head. This was a person who obviously needed help and empathy. But we pointed and laughed, oblivious to the mental health issues affecting a young person unable to deal with the trappings of fame. Anyone in her position would have lost the motivation to continue. No one would have judged her for walking off into the sunset with her bags of cash and a lifetime of fame and experience. People have given up after facing far less. But for what it’s worth, Spears is still around, and still a big enough draw, still only 34. Sure, she’s not right up there at the very top of the pop world, but she’s relevant. She has been steadily fighting her way through every setback, releasing new music periodically. Personally, Glory (or much of her back-catalogue) doesn’t move this writer all that much in terms of aesthetics or emotional attachment. It’s music I don’t particularly enjoy, and try my best not to judge too harshly. It’s catchy. But it’s the kind of catchy that I — a fully grown manchild nearing 30 — will not admit to enjoying for fear of ridicule. What’s worth highlighting about Spears, though, is just her sheer resilience. It’s easy to accuse her of trying to ‘reinvent’ herself, to exploit the industry and relive the fame of her early days. But for nine albums? Maybe she genuinely finds a pure kind of joy in her music. She deserves respect, begrudgingly or otherwise.
  12. http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/pop/7525580/britney-spears-toxic-songwriters-returns? Britney Spears' smash hit "Toxic" – from her 2003 album In the Zone – remains one of her best-known and most beloved songs, even years after descending from its No. 9 peak on the Billboard Hot 100. Fans keep returning to the song year after year, and the songwriters reap the financial returns to the tune of about $48,000 a year, if you are just looking at U.S. sales, streaming, and radio airplay. Billboard estimates that the song generated about $40,000 collectively for the songwriters in 2013, nearly $60,000 for the songwriters in 2015 and, this year as of Sept. 2016, about $45,000. In the last almost three years -- two years, 8 months and three weeks, to be exact -- its combined U.S. publishing total for radio, sales, and streaming comes to about $145,000. The song has four songwriters, Cathy Dennis, who has this song with Sony/ATV via a deal she did with EMI Music Publishing, who has a 50 percent writer’s share; Christian Karlsson (Bloodshy), with a 22.5 percent writer's share; Pontus Winnberg (Avant) with a 22.5 percent writer's share, and Henrik Jonback with a 5 percent writer’s share, all with BMG. Dennis has a traditional publishing deal on this song, which suggests a 50/50 split with her publisher; while the other three are believed to have co-publishing deals, via contracts they acquired with a Swedish publisher, which was acquired by one of the many publishing companies that BMG has gobbled up since it re-launched its music business in 2008. Since Billboard is not privy to what kind of co-publishing deal the three writers have, we are assuming each has a 2/3s split with the publishing company getting 1/3 split. So based on those estimates and those splits, Billboard concludes that Cathy Dennis made about $36,000 over the last two years and almost 9 months; Winnberg and Karlsson each almost made $22,000; Jonbak made nearly $5,000; BMG garnered about $24,000 and Sony/ATV about $36,000. Those numbers are based on track sales of 239,000; album sales of 177,000; radio plays of 65,000; on-demand audio streams of 37 million; on-demand video streams of 32 million, and nearly 2 million in programmed streams. If you feel like reliving the magic (and thereby sending some extra scratch to the songwriters behind "Toxic"), watch the immortal video below. SLAY, IMMORTAL SONG
  13. http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/magazine-feature/7503457/burns-dj-producer-britney-spears? Slay, humble queen! After years on the road with Deadmau5and Calvin Harris, British producer Burns, 30, scores his biggest credit yet with Britney Spears’ “Make Me,” off the pop icon’s new album Glory, which debuts at No. 3 on the Billboard 200. The Los Angeles-based DJ breaks down his most notable works. Britney Spears featuring G-Eazy, “Make Me” (2016) Burns recorded the demo for “Make Me” in a friend’s kitchen in 2015, plugging a guitar into his laptop to lay down the song. After it made its way to Spears’ camp, he hit the studio with her for two days to record the vocals. “You think that there might be this diva-ish personality with somebody of that level,” he says, “but she was just so normal, it’s crazy.”
