So…it’s finally out: the much-awaited music video for the Britney Spears and Madonna collaboration, “Me Against The Music.” Boredom, a big yawn and boycott should be the proper responses to this messy collage of a video. We should not be supporting “artists” who give us nothing but bad songs, albums and videos. Everything in the video, we’ve seen before: Britney Spears trying to look and move like Janet Jackson, Madonna in a suit and emulating Marlene Dietrich, Madonna suggesting lesbian/bisexual themes in a video, club scenes, ho-hum…not to mention bad non-singing and bad melody and rapping.
This is so typical of Spears, who IS, after all, associated with non-talent, dumbness and mediocrity. This is BECOMING typical of the ancient hag Madonna, who, thanks to this collaboration, has proven that she has finally lost her touch in making good music and videos. “Me Against The Music” has got to be the worst, if not one of the worst, music videos ever. It has no artistic or commercial value whatsoever. Even the sex that it’s trying to project and sell is NOT sexy, daring and provocative at all. It’s all been done before, and the concept and the visuals suck. Or are we just tired of Madonna and her non-talented student?
Britney and Madonna, quo vadis – where are you going? Maybe you can do the world more service by just retiring (especially YOU, Madonna). By doing it, there will be more beauty in this already messed-up world. By just fading away from the scene, you’ll save yourselves from further failure and embarrassment. It’s the ONLY way, since you can’t give us anything good anymore.
