You know, it's a little sad but it makes me a little concerned about Britney Spears. Here is a young lady that has a music career and somehow is managing to throw it away.
To be honest, I never thought Britney was all that talented. She is a great dancer but her singing voice is average. I did enjoy a few of her songs but I never thought she could be the successor to Madonna. I believe that it what the media tried to create but it never happened. The reason is that they are just very different. Madonna created herself, her own image and built a career while Britney allowed herself to be created by a label. Madonna had something to say and to prove while Britney..... Well, I'm not sure what Britney was saying.
Little by little, Britney has began to crumble. I really wish that she would take time off to get to know herself, go to college, spend time with her kids and truly evaluate whether she wants to be a music star or not. The 2007 VMA performance looked like an obligation. For a moment, Britney did like so many regular employees do daily. You know, the ones that just show up to work and just get throught the day with little enthusiam. I recognize it because I was was there once upon a time.
Hey, I am not going to beat up on Britney too bad. She has a lot of pressure for someone so young. The press has been hard on her. They called her fat or was it flabby. Whatever, she is not fat, although that outfit was not the best choice for a woman who gave birth to two children. Also, she is not crazy. She just needs to take a break, stop drinking, chill and be honest with herself about what she wants.
Soul searching and time away from the spotlight could save her career. I know that is not the general concensus but to me if she is good enough, all time away from the spotlight will do is make fans long for her more.
