The problem here I think is that the “apology” NEVER would’ve happened if he wasn’t called out for his behavior. It wasn’t sincere. It was forced. His first album wasn’t selling. He needed star power and he threw Britney under the bus to make it happen. It worked. It was at her cost but it worked. He didn’t care. Never said a word about it again. I believe in forgiveness. I believe in righting wrongs and second chances. I believe in those things when the apology is genuine. This was not that.
All the backup dancers go a little “harder” than Britney. But Britney brings more life, fluidity, sexiness and attitude to the routine. She has charisma that just can’t be matched which, in turn, makes it look better and more stylish. She is the definition of “stage presence”. Watch Brian and Wade do the Slave choreo. They are so fast and hard with it while she just lives in it.
