Look, I am a Britney Spears fan. I think Britney is gorgeous, has a pretty face, is an okay dancer (and as a fan I have the balls to admit that she isn’t the greatest singer or dancer), and her music is okay. But some of you Britney fans are just embarrassing. You exaggerate and overrate this girl as if there’s nobody else like her on earth. Well guess what, many artist before Britney had sold just as many records, was just as popular, and had about just the same qualities that makes Britney famous: sex appeal, the body, the looks, the personality, the style, and the talent. And one day many other artists will come along and do the same.
And what’s more embarrassing is how you always have to use Christina Aguilera to make Britney look more superior above her based on just record sales and popularity. Well, judging on popularity and fame is different than judging on the artistry of an artist, some of you seem to act as if they both belong in the same category. As a fan, I have the balls to admit that as an artist, her music is repetitive and doesn’t bring anything new and daring to the table, but if I feel drunk and feel like just listening to dance tune, would I care? No. Her music is just pop with a vibier R&B feel to it, that doesn’t make her a great artist.
And as for her performing, just because her outfits are catchy and she can move her hips and shaking her ass and fling her hair all over her face while lip-synching (I mean c’mon, some of must be really delusional over Britney and a very dishonest fan if you can’t admit that the girl can’t sing live barely or at all), does not make her a great performer or entertainer. If that entertains you, fine, it does for me sometimes, but don’t make such a big deal about it, her dancing is not strenuous or out of this world. It’s simple and robotic, that is all, it’s nothing special, and I have seen much better dancing on Broadway and in night clubs.
And as for her “piano playing”, I’m embarrassed that some of you fans are so delusional to believe that she was actually playing something. C’mon people, it’s just a prop on stage to introduce the song. It’s that simple. If she actually knew how to play the piano, why can’t she play the piano on more than one song in her whole album, or play a few tunes live on stage to show her fans that she can play an instrument? Even if she actually could, it’s nothing to brag about, it’s not like she can play the piano as good as Alicia Keys or Norah Jones, so get real about that, she can’t play worth a darn.
But anyways, my point is that even though I love Britney and I think she’s beautiful and interesting, I think that many of you focus too much on her pro’s and kind of add other minor info (such as the star Hollywood walk of fame and the Guinness world record thing) that isn’t really a big deal and doesn’t justify or make a point about anything more prestigious or worth bragging about. And plus, some of you just really exaggerate and make yourself look so ridiculous. If you think Britney is so popular and stuff, fine. If you haven’t notice I didn’t say a word about Christina to make Britney look good or bad, and I think it’s pathetic how the only way some of you can make Britney look good and larger than life is by making fun of Christina and the people who are fans of her.
I can name her pro’s as well as her cons, and what makes me more irritated that none of you never mention about how 1) her bad tour reviews 2) her bad press (yeah, some of you mention how popular she is and is watched and read by everybody in the media, but do u mention that she’s getting more publicity for just kissing Madonna and dating husbands with pregnant wives, NO, she’s just so good and moral right? Our Britney can’t do that; we must not mention that, we must keep her secrets and private life to ourselves as if it is our own, right? *rolls eyes*) and 3) how compared to better singing artist, she doesn’t compare and is not first or second or last best to anybody.
So yeah, my other point is that just because you are a fan of someone’s music doesn’t mean you have to be an obsessed one that categorizes popularity, record sales, and fame over what really matters: the talent, the voice, and the music. And trying to compare someone’s popularity and fame is different from comparing talent and longevity, and with many of you fans, you seem to confuse popularity and fame with the actual talent and music. They’re both different things. If you are going to try to make an artist look good, at least choose one comparison or use both, I would rather judge an artist based on popularity, fame, REAL talent (heard of vocal talent kiddies? And I don’t mean vocal moaning and breathing through synthesized background music that drowns it), and music rather than just on popularity, record sales, and fame alone.
I know from this you might think that I’m not a real fan, but guess what, I LIKE BRITNEY SPEARS, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that I have to act like an obsessed 12 year old that has no knowledge of knowing what real talent and what a real artist is when I see one.
