It’s sad Britney sets the bar impossibly high for herself to please the world, yet there’s still people who continue to view her through their warped perspective of negativity.
One journalist published a piece in Metro, a Dutch newspaper, and kicked off the tirade with the headline: “R.I.P Britney Spears”.
She compares trashes the Scream & Shout vid, calls Brit a slave and finishes the article saying: “Poor Britney, she’s officially dead now.”
BreatheHeavy reader Mich Van Nederkassel translated this for us:
Britney Spears made another comeback with ‘Scream an Shout’, but it’s not ‘Britney: Bitch’.
So who is Britney? She was 8 when her parents took her to Disney, where she was drilled together with Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake to be a mass entertainer, and 16 when she conquered the world as a sexy lolita with BOMT. From virgin to adulteress to shameless ‘snake dancer’ kissing Madonna for attention: the script was being followed. But by that time, Britney wanted out. She tried so hard to escape. She got married, had kids asap, ran around in her jogging and with bad extensions every day in LA, and stopped making music. She tried everything to make the world lose interest in her. The opposite happened…
Messy Britney was watched more than anyone. Youtube is filled with clips where paparazzi hunt her down, until
she breaks down and attacks a car with an umbrella. If you ask me, she had every reason to do so.
Britney is always in the spotlight, whether she is working or not. Although she didn’t have anything to say in the comeback that followed. She is part of a small group of people in the US that are under guardianship: in this case her dad and partner. This means she has less to say than a 12 year old, and the guardianship will never end without the consent of these two shifty men.
Britney Spears hasn’t had access to her cellphone, internet or bank account in years. In the US, this only happens to people with dementia. Yet, Britney is able to work for a living. This is called: a slave.
‘Scream and Shout’ is another low point, at least six feet under. The average necrophile wouldn’t even make it to the end of the video. Britney’s tight body is hoisted into a tight suit, acting like an electr. doll next to a mechanic Will.I.Am, all of this accompanied by a ‘Tamagoctchi’-tune and black/white backdrop, there is no real setting. They didn’t even use Britney’s vocals: The only thing we hear is an unknown British robotic voice. The only action in the clip is random product placement every couple of seconds. It is one long commercial for about 10 different items. Her record company must have gotten a lot of money for it. Even though the video looks as if it had a 3 digit budget.
Poor Britney. She is officially dead now, at least on the inside. Couldn’t they just have organized a funeral?
Her Twitter is @hadjar in case you’d like to shoot her a reaction.
