All That’s Missing From Britney Spears’ ‘In The Zone’ Is The Singer

Lorraine Ali of Newsweek hung out with as she was promoting her forthcoming album ‘In the Zone’. Ali says of the disc, “The record—created by everyone from Moby to R. Kelly—is actually pretty amazing. Its beats are crisp and club-savvy, its production inspired. All that’s missing is the singer: Spears’ breathy voice and orgasmic groans are simply decoration.” Ali also wasn’t impressed with Spears’ “beauty contestant’s rehearsed monologue” when conducting interviews, but caught the singer off guard when she talked about the South Asian musical influences on her latest effort, she says she’s “been into a lot of Indian spiritual religions.” When asked if one of them is Hinduism, she says, “What’s that? Is it like Kabbalah?” The complete story at thedailybeast.com has since been removed.

    She’s such a dork. If a reporter actually said the album “Is actually pretty amazing. Its beats are crisp and club-savvy…”, than it should be good. The only thing missing is the singer? Of course, Brit is not much of a singer. But if this album is “club savvy”, than I wouldn’t wanna listen to vocal gymnastics with it. LMAO @ the Kabbalah thing. She needs to get over it. That girl is more Baptist than I don’t know what. She’s trying too hard to impress Madonna.

    ^^That’s what I was thinking!!! Didn’t Britney grow up in a HUGE baptist area?? Now all of sudden she’s into the Kabbalah, PLEASE!!! People are just getting into it because it’s getting publicity.

    “Why are they not going at Christina [Aguilera]? Have they seen what she has on? I know I’m acting like a 4-year-old right now, ‘Well, look at her!’ But Beyonce dresses provocatively. Why don’t they say something about her? What is too sexy to them? My family, we walked around the house naked, we really did. By the time I was 13, my dad was like, ‘Uh, Britney, it’s time to start covering yourself up.’ What a BITCH!!! This gives me all the more reason to hate Britney. she had the audacity to point fingers at Christina and Beyonce. she’s such a hypocrite. Christina or Beyonce never tried to shift blame on to others. sure they’ve criticized…..but they’ve never tried to pin Britney like THAT!!! although they do dress just as provocative as Britney…..Britney had no right accuse them of being worse when she’s the queen of taking it off. Britney really does have the brain capacity of a 4 year old….she even admitted she acted like one.

    Christina is featured in a story in the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet where she went into detail saying many female singers out there are hypocrites. They like to show off their sexual side in videos, but when asked about it in interviews, all of a sudden they’re all virgins. “How can you do that and call yourself an artist?”, Christina asked. Aguilera also says that Britney never was a virgin. It was all a lie. For her part, Aguilera says, “I’m raw and real and I don’t apologize,” and “I want to show a sexuality that is cruel, the kind a man can never get close to.” Who’s the hypocrite now?

    ^^ how is Christina being a hypocrite???? she’s saying that you shouldn’t lie about that and Britney DID. so I guess that does make Britney a hypocrite. she says she’s a virgin….lies about it…and goes flaunting her sexuality and god knows who. she never said….everybody…look at Britney…she’s worse than me. look at her look at her. she’s pointing her damn finger at people. Christina was commenting on that issue….she wasn’t accusing. Christina is just simply acknowledging her sexually HONESTLY!

    I highly doubt the album is amazing…someone else has said MATM is the strongest track on the album, and we all know how weak THAT is….. I’m just going off of what I’ve heard prior to this…including parts of the new CD…. I don’t look for it to be that great! As for the interview…..DUH she sounds like a beauty contestant…..that really is all she is when you boil everything down. She’s not a singer, she’s not even that great of a performer….she obviously can’t act….when she tries to write, it’s a joke…… All she has is her looks, and that really IS why she is where she is. Someone said earlier this week that since pics are the least searched for item where she’s concerned, this can’t POSSIBLY be true, but it is! WHY ELSE would she get more revealing time after time….. The pointing fingers thing….that’s not what friends do! She’s trying her damnedest there to shift the blame and the heat! She knows damn good and well why people focus on her. She and her people do everything in their power to make the most famous person and most recognizable face…. With fame comes responsibility, and she’s showing how much she’s refusing to accept that by pointing the finger…… Britney Spears is a walking contradiction of herself! “I’m not all about being a sex kitten…that’s not me!!” MY ASS!! Look at all her recent photo shoots! Look at how she dresses all the time…. Just more reasons to hate the woman.

    THAT BRITNEY BETTER KEEP MY GIRL CHRISTINA OUT HER NASTY ASS LIP-SYNCING MOUTH SHE WOULD PLACE THE BLAME ON SINGERS THAT’S BETTER THEN HER I CAN’T STAND THAT DUMB ASS WHORE IF SHE WANTS TO DRESS HALF-NAKED THEN SAY THAT’S WHAT YOU WANT TO DO DON’T BLAME THAT ON SOMEONE ELSE BIMBO BRITNEY STILL HASN’T MATURED AND HER LAME-ASS MUSIC HASN’T EITHER.

    LOL, morons. Britney brought that up because she’s just saying, why are people picking on her? Beyonce can do nothing wrong, in the media’s eyes. And Christina only gets 50% of the sh*t Britney gets. Britney isn’t the only one using sex appeal. She was saying really nice things about Christina on T4, SMTV, Babetrap, and This Morning recently. She even said Christina was beautiful and she didn’t know why the media was attacking her. lol@the idiotic babet. Oh, and that Christina interview with Aftonbladet…or whatever the hell it’s called – is fake. Idiots.

Aguilera also says that Britney never was a virgin. It was all a lie. ~and you say ….”YOU DON’T SEE CHRISTINA AND BEYONCE TALKING ABOUT THE WAY BRITNEY DRESSES AND THERE INTERVIEWS.” You’re right she didn’t talk about the way she dresses, but she does talk about her sexuality. Same thing!

    Well, I’m glad she thought the album was great. Too bad she doesn’t think much of Britney’s voice. However, us fans already know what to expect of Britney’s voice, so the questionable part is the music, and it seems like the reviewer liked it, so that please me.

    50% my ass. Christina has taken just as much, if not MORE flack for just being herself…and actually being herself, not what her label tells her to be. They attack her vocals (saying she tries too hard), they attack her clothes, they attack her dancing, her visuals, her tattoos, piercings…everything about her and yet she carries herself with self-confidence and respect. And doesn’t point the finger at others. And it was stupid of Britney to even say “why don’t they criticize Christina”…this time last year you could barely read a magazine without hearing about ‘Dirrty’ or someone boycotting her for one thing or another. Every time I start to forget why I have no respect for Britney she comes back strong with a reminder.
