There was a performance in Vegas on Friday. Then she went to San Francisco to tape her mini concert appearance for Good Morning America. All in advance of the release of Femme Fatale on Tuesday. I’ve heard a few songs off the album. Mostly generic dance tracks. There are one or two however that I can pick up the beat and run to on the treadmill. Will have to give it a closer listen when I get home but a lot of people have been sh-tting on it early for mediocrity. I guess it’s been a long time since Britney Spears has actually delivered when she’s promised to bring it.
I don’t have a problem with Britney not singing. I haven’t had a problem with it in a long time, maybe ever. Not even sure why it’s even a conversation anymore. When was that ever an expectation? What made the not singing ok for me before however was that she’d compensate for it by killing it with effort. Her moves were tight. Her choreography was sharp. She executed cross stage group sequences that made you want to get up off your seat and pump.
And that’s why the Circus Tour was so bullsh-t. She either walked, half-assedly at that, or they pushed her around in carts. And once in a while she’d toss a hip or two like some washed up barmaid givin’er for old times’ sake.
It appears to be more of the same this go round. Have you seen some of the footage? I’ve attached a couple of videos below. I find it particularly embarrassing when she, like, straddles something and then just shakes her tits around like that’s supposed to be choreography. And then when the actual dance break sections come along, it’s even worse because you can see, very clearly, how f-cking easy they are and she can still barely keep up.
Is it fair to keep comparing her to what she was?
Well… frankly… yes.
Because you’re being asked to pay for it. More than before. It’s very simple economics. You used to pay a dollar for a really good piece of fried chicken. Now you pay 30 cents more for a piece of fried chicken that’s been sitting in old oil for half a day and soggy as sh-t.
Can they stop trotting out the soggy fried chicken? And not sell it anymore unless they can cook it properly again?
