Earlier today I subscribed to the Patreon of Natasha Khan, the wonderful mastermind behind the stage name Bat for Lashes. I adore her music so much, and the subscription gives me access to exclusive content. I also am able to message her, so I wrote this: "Hello Natasha, I'm just writing this to let you know that you have gained another fan in this world full of pop culture fascination. I first encountered your music through the infectious groove of Feel for You shortly after it was released in 2019, on rateyourmusic.com. I delved into the Lost Girls project shortly thereafter, and I don't believe I've surfaced yet. I've always been enamored by rich, powerful vocals, and the dreamscapes that you put together with your instrumentals create worlds within my mind whenever I listen to the album. Your lyrics on The Bride, about the journeys through grief and such unimaginable tragedy, are so poignant in today's reality. You truly are a blessing to the art of music. I can't wait for the new album. With Regards, Ben." I'm not sure if she'll respond or not. How about you? Have you ever messaged one of your favs? Have they responded?
I was an Ariana Grande fan 2015-2020. I just lost interest in her after Positions album. I think her new songs, music videos etc. suck and most of it is just not for me anymore. It sounds kinda bad but discovering Britney's songs, music videos, iconic moments, performances, career just made me realize how Ariana is far from perfect. What about you?
I've only rediscovered Britney around mid August right before the release of Glory. I thought it would be fun/amusing to listen to the "This Is:" playlist they had of her on Spotify while I played LoL. I was never a fan of hers before that. In fact, the only song I genuinely liked from her was Sometimes and it was more for the nostalgia feels (still my favorite btw). I've never been a pop music fan either. In high school I listened to 90s alt like Weezer and Green Day or emo stuff like MCR, PATD, or FOB. In college, I listened to a lot of indie/folk stuff like Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, Edwarde Sharpe+Magnetic zeros, etc. When I started working my desk monkey job I was listening to recent hip hop stuff like Future, Young Thug, and Travis Scott. After I heard Don't Let Me Be The Last To Know and Anticipating from the playlist I couldn't get enough of Britney. I listened to BOMT and OIDIA all the way through and loved every second of it maybe not Dear Diary so much. Then I decided to look up her old music videos on YT and I absolutely fell in love with her. You see where this is going. I listened to Britney, ITZ, and Blackout just in time before she released Glory and my life was changed forever. Her albums just got better and better! (I hadn't heard BJ at this time, or Circus and FF for that matter). I even bought a japanese version of Glory just so I could listen to Mood Ring - the first physical copy of music I've bought since 2004. I am basically obsessed with her (stanning? is that the right word?) and my gf thought it was cute at first but now she thinks it's a little weird. My coworkers thought it was funny but the other day one of my friends said it was getting a little creepy lol. As a straight guy that works in IT it's really hard to find other fans that love her as much as I do, especially without being called gay/love etc. and I am so glad to have found this community and see that there are many out there who share my love for the Queen, the one true God, the Holy Spearit herself, Britney Jean Spears. Sorry for the word vomit, but any other 'new' fans out there? How did you become a fan? I wanna hear your stories!
