Three Stars for Spears

I admit it. I am fessing up right now. I actually legitimately like Britney's new song, Gimme More. I find it infectious. I find it hard to block out the Mtv Awards show debacle while hearing it but I still like the song. I want to run to it. I be-bop to it in my car excited when I find it on a station.

I'm not proud of it but I never said I was a connoisseur of great music. I list Disco and Funk as my two top fave genres. My iPod is engraved with the words, 'Don't Fake the Funk'. While Funk might garner awards Disco never will unless it's in cheesiness and the top most played wedding songs. It really should be of no surprise then that after 'Oops I Did it Again' I became a fan of Ms. Spears. Yet, somehow I'm shocked by this.

People magazine has given her new CD 'Blackout' three stars. Yes, three. Out of five not ten. While I haven't heard the whole thing I figured that with the mess that her life has become this would not be a stellar recording. Not even a mediocre one. The last few haven't been. And no, I haven't bought any of her actual albums. It's a secret iPod only type of thing. Still, I am surprised. Surprised and now anxious to hear the rest of the tracks. This little bad taste in music junkie is excited. At least I'm not a Justin Timberlake fan.

  1. I haven't heard the Britney song too much, but I do actually kind of like the "leaked" single by Heidi from the Hills. Body Language or somesuch.

  2. Yeah, ... the new Britney CD is pretty good! There are about 6 songs on the CD that I legit rock out to & then some okay ones. I definately recommend getting a couple more songs on that ipod of yours. :)
