Have you heard this?

Thanks to Alicia for the heads up. Ryan Seacrest played Britney’s new song on the radio – a ballad.

So… I don’t hate it. I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it. The music I mean. The lyrics on the other hand are pure f*cking puke Rossum obviously because she penned them herself. And that talking bit in the middle is some lame sh-t too. Ok, we get it, he was a freeloading douche. But you married him!

Here’s the thing though, and you can slag me for defending her all you want… as far as dumb lyrics go, it’s not like she’s the only one.

Have you listened to Fergie’s Big Girl’s Don’t Cry?

There’s a line in there: And I"m gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket

No…come on… seriously… WTF??? Who writes this sh-t??? How can they live with themselves?

As for her voice, it doesn’t sound like there’s been too much tampering in the studio, and it was actually nice to hear her sing for a chance although of course, she clearly hasn’t given up that dumb ass vocal gymnastics technique that somehow became popular in the mid 90s and performed by Jessica Simpson too, resulting in too many aspiring American and Canadian Idols adopting it for themselves.

Why??? Do they teach it?

Anyway, Britney’s new song, hear it here.
