I come to this site everyday, and everyday Britney Spears’ control over the pop world amazes me even more. Everyday Britney is the topic of discussion, and its always her topics that have the highest number of reads and responses.
Even more impressive is the fact that many of those responses are from Britney-haters…you know, those people who hate Britney and all she stands for. These people, who claim to not care about Britney, are the same ones who run to her topics and flood the message boards. A bit ironic, don’t you think?
Many of these Britney-haters are often Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera fans….yet when topics arise about them, they barely get a glance. But when Britney is in the headlines, its as if it were the only topic on popdirt. For disliking Britney so much and caring so little about her, they devote an awful amount of time to her. There has been a lot of essays on Britney lately, and many of them have been written by those Britney-haters. It astounds me…people have actually taken the time to write these long essays, and all for someone they don’t like. Wow…amazing. Actually, its a bit sad.
It must burn Britney haters to see her on every magazine cover, to hear her back on the radio, and most of all, to see her succeed. For weeks we heard about how ‘Me Against The Music’ was going to be a flop. Two weeks after its release, and it is still topping radio countdowns all over the nation. And now with the video out, the single is only going to gain more popularity.
We have known it for a long time (some of you just didn’t care to admit it), and with her 4th album around the corner, its even more obvious that Britney rules the pop world. There is a reason that she continues to be referred to as the Pop Princess, and that reason is now more clear than ever.
Topics like “Baby, One more Comeback” have attempted to bring her down, but have proven to be nothing more than unrealistic arguments by bitter Britney haters. It suggests that Britney is the only artist who looks for media attention. Yeah, right…as if there wasn’t a record label behind EVERY pop artist.
Maybe the reason that Britney-haters are so obsessed with Britney is because she has been on top for so long. Its always been known that you attack those on top, and this is exactly the case with Britney and her haters. Nonetheless, critics have not succeeded in bringing her down. Why? Because Britney has got “it.” She attracts you, she interests you, and that even goes for those who dislike her. It must suck to hate Britney…she is always around, in everyone magazine and in every story. She staked her claim on the pop world years ago, and until she decides to let go, those poor Britney-haters will be stuck in a Britney world.
Today as I watched TRL, Britney brought one of her fans to tears. I already knew that she has touched the lives of millions of fans around the world, but it amazed me even more to see just how much she has touched their lives. I’m proud to be a fan, and I pity all those haters who will spend their days trying to bring Britney down, all to realize that they are playing in her world and on her terms, not their own.
