Jo Ellison of the Independent reviewed Britney Spears’ concert at Wembley Arena on Monday (April 26) in London. Ellison writes, “Britney’s stage antics are only faintly reminiscent of her idol and sometime best friend Madonna, whose infamous ‘Girlie Show’ set the standards for young female pop stars seeking to make the transition from pop tart to sex bomb. Just as Madonna did 20 years ago, the show bears the same wanton contrivance. But where Madonna had the charisma and self-assurance to manipulate and control her audience, Britney seems to flounder in the same context.”
