If U Seek Amy

I had revived hope in Britney Spears’ pop value and her chosen production team after the “Circus” video, but now I see that I was mistaken. Nevermind that this song is a hot mess, including a very annunciated “ha ha he he ha ha ho” and ridiculous grammatic aberrations (“all of the boys and all of the girls can’t wait to if u seek Amy,” and yes, I get it that she’s spelling “FUCK ME,”) in the lyrics, it’s just a “conceptual disaster” all around, as Tom Colicchio would say. As a song, I deem it worse than Womanizer.

Check it.

A Very Googly Gift

I Love Remixes. Because ILR, I’ve scoured the internet for the best of the bootlegged best. I know remixes/mash ups may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but that’s the coolest part about them: you can do it for any genre. So no excuses for hatin’, people! In no way do these loopy covers best their originals, but some have the great ability to give your fave song a different point of view. (more…)

Because I Just Love Britney

What. Is. This.

So my magic 8 ball told me that Britney was back on track with her sanity, but I guess she’s low on funds or something, because the cover for her new album looks like a combination of white trash mall Glamour Shots and something I made with Microsoft Paint when I was in 8th grade. (I’m onto you Britney, and I’m suing!)

I guess the saddest thing is, someone probably got paid a lot of money for this “design,” and I shouldn’t be especially surprised or confused by this album cover, based on the way “Blackout” looked. But then again, when “Blackout” came out, she was batshit crazy. My final hypothesis on the reason behind this complete disaster of an album cover? Laziness. Sheer laziness. Also responsible for the lyrics in “Womanizer.” Save us, Elton John!

Britney Spears’ “Womanizer”: Sheer Poetry

This morning I had the opportunity to view Britney Spears’ latest music video for the song “Womanizer”, so of course, at the risk of burning out my retinas like that time when I watched the uncensored version of “Gimme More,” I just had to watch it. While I’m thrilled that she seems to have returned to normalcy after what seemed like years of bizarro behavior caused by a combination of mental illness and Cheetos, her latest video, is uh… Well it’s Britney, to say the least.

The song is called “Womanizer” and from what I can gather from the unintelligible and incoherent lyrics, it’s about a man who is a womanizer and how the narrator (singer? protagonist? whatever) is too smart to fall for his womanizing ways. How do I know this? From the chorus! Britney repeats the word “womanizer” about 150 times, and the rest of the lyrics go something like, “Boy don’t try to front, I-I know just-just what you are,” followed by “womanizer, womanizer, womanizer… womanizer. Womanizer!” The word loses all meaning within the first 30 seconds of the song. In addition to the words being completely vapid and senseless, the song itself isn’t the typically entrancing Britney pop that excuses poor lyrics and flimsy concepts.
