Rich Copley of the Lexington Herald-Leader says: “I have officially had it with Britney Spears.” He explained, “With the imminent release of her new CD, ‘In the Zone,’ coming out Tuesday, it has been clear that for Spears, it is not about music. It’s about her body. If you think the Rolling Stone shoot was hot, see her bottomless cover for Esquire, not to mention the inside shots, in which only well-placed necklaces stood between her and our imaginations. It’s been going this way a long time. Her initial gimmick was dressing in a school uniform with the front of the shirt knotted instead of tucked in, to look a little naughty. Since then, less has been more – more media, more exposure, more money.”
