  1. I talked about this in my season one, Dolly was so sad about it but her quote was something like the publishing is for her family to be taken care of long after she passes.
  2. I talked with her about that on my podcast. since I have been able to chat with different songwriters and producers, it is always (as a fan) for me interesting to hear about the songs going through transformations and going from hand to hand.
  3. I have interviewed several Britney songwriters and producers for my podcast. Each of them stated that When it was listed as Britney as a co-write, it was Britney. That is their personal experience with all of their songs. On my episode this weekend you hear about a young songwriter who got a writing credit on a little mix song, it went gold status. She (this is normal) has to buy the certification plaque. The plaque was 200 UK pounds. The song didn’t even make her enough to buy her own plaque. The songwriter head for the UK writing group, broke down a Kylie song and how little she even made from streaming one million. It’s not about charging more for the song. The profits are there, the label just needs to adjust their profits. (They keep making more money and have published articles you can google).
  4. The demo of masquerade is out, I chatted with Myah Marie about demos and making art for huge superstars. I love seeing and hearing people making great art! I noticed there is so much aggression towards women on the internet, and have seen firsthand those comments about Myah Marie, etc. I chatted with her for my podcast, and it was an eye opening conversation. Also, by being a guest she helped get items donated for communities and families in need. The.Original.Doll
  5. Thank you for all of these replies! I love how people connect with the different part of the arts she has created, music, visuals, performance! -The.Original.Doll
  6. For my podcast, The Original Doll - Britney Spears, I would love to interview people for their own personal stories and connection to the music, etc of Britney Spears. It will be a future episode that is devoted to having people tell their own stories about their favorite songs, or experiences with Britney Spears music. Talking about how her art impacted you personally. Send me a message! (The podcast is a philanthropic one so whenever a guest answers questions, items get donated to charity). Thank you! -James Rodriguez.
  7. This is a great question. I have been a fan for a long time and I remember when Oops came out, I knew that I was interested in the first week sales, and I bought Ooops the night it came out. I went to a record store that was opening at midnight. I remember knowing that NSYNC no strings was a huge first week hit and the anticipation was to see what Britney's first week sales would be. I have a podcast, and have been researching the physical magazines, etc leading up to the release seeing what people thought of Britney's follow up. JIVE knew Baby would be big, but I don't know anyone knew it would be as big as it was. At the time the labels were promoting their sales and using that to entice new artists. I mean, if you wanted to be a popstar would you go with the place that has a recently proven record...or one that hasn't figured out the "formula" yet. The truth of the matter is, it's hardwork, talent and luck. But knowing that Britney was a popstar that looked like she could break records, more eyes would be on her and see how it impacts the recording industry. I have an episode coming up talking about record release anticipation and how we went from Janet Jackson releasing 7 songs in 3 years from one album, to some artist album cycles with barely two singles now, because the industry has changed. The other thing to think about, is when an artists breaks these records, if they only do 75% on their next album, people will consider it a failure even if that 75% is still higher than 90% of the artists out there. Britney was breaking records, so all business eyes were on it in addition to the fans.
