Newness Wears Off On Britney Spears

Newsweek reports industry watchers are predicting that Britney Spears’ forthcoming album, which the singer has described as “very moody,” could fare far worse on the charts than both 2000’s ‘Oops! I Did It Again,’ which sold 9.1 million copies, and her 2001 follow-up, ‘Britney,’ which sold less than half that. “Maybe her newness has worn out,” said Greg Mize, spokesman for Handleman Co., which distributes music to more than 2,700 Wal-Mart and Kmart stores. “I suppose it depends on how you measure success. There’s still excitement around her.”

    lol..right. put Britney’s name, face on any of your products and it WILL sell. yes– being the most searched for person in the world, yeah, the newness is really wearing of there. this persons obviously hated her from the start so I’m not surprised.

    Poor Britney… I don’t think she will do good with this album either and Me against the music was a terrible choice for first single.

    the only excitement around her is coming from how many nude photo shoots people think she’s going to do. no one gives a damn about her music. when she’s still lip synching with her stupid dance routines its a perfect indication that her newness has worn off AND that she’s a one trick pony. and its a pretty lame trick.

    like many have said before…talent always sees through. sorry Britney…you have to do more than f**k celebs, screw producers to work with, and follow Christina’s footsteps by posing nude.

    no matter what happens if the album sell or not I will always be her fan no matter what she does.

    This is funny, I have never read in my life something as retarded like this news report. …Fare far worse… [clueless???] Since when selling 9.1 million copies is bad, or 4.2 million copies of her lasted ‘Britney’ album; btw, Brit’s debut album was certified 13x platinum. You know what is indeed pathetic, that Christina Aguilera’s self-titled crappy genie debut album didn’t even sold as Britney’s sophomore Oops! album, that Christy set only sold 8 million copies, and way WORSE is her current 2nd or 5th album ‘Stripped’ who at least sold 3 million copies. SO “Newness” get a life and stop talking crap about a CD that will sell multi-platinum copies and that indeed is going to debut at number 1 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart.

    I don’t care if she doesn’t sell that much, all that matter is that her CD will be good.. Which is obvious cause every album she has done has topped the previous one and has been hot!

    lmfao! YES – Britney has sold more albums than Christina and YES – Britney is the most searched artist on lycos bla bla bla BUT with each album Britney has released it has done worse then the previous…. and do you wanna know why? because with each album she has more say in what is in it… so obviously she should go back to being a brainless puppet used by her record company to rake in cash… that’s all she is and will ever be: a puppet used by others.

    Yeah Britney’s third album didn’t sell as well as her first two, and her fourth won’t either. Her 3rd album sold 4 million and people acted like that was bad, but other people get credit for 2 million. So what if sales aren’t as good -they still are good. Xtina’s first album sold about 10 mill and her second sold only 3mill and no one makes a big deal about that. N’Sync dudes to sell over 10 million and now Justin sells 3 million. It’s just the pattern in pop music now.

    um, just cause she’s searched for doesn’t mean people are going to feel like wasting their money on the piece of crap….. I don’t think her CD will do what “Britney” did, and for her, that was a flop…. Her career is done….she’s simply famous for being famous, and that’s not necessarily a good thing. It turns people off..

    um, nobody is saying 4.2 million is a flop… oops, released, what, MAY 2000 sold 9.1 million copies…… Britney, released November 2001, 4.2 million…. that’s a pretty sad drop….. and nobody played her music cause nobody wanted to hear it that much! 4.2 million copies….I know of a LOT of non fans and even haters who bought that album…myself included cause I LOVE the original version of “Overprotected” and I don’t mind “Not a Girl”….after getting it, “Lonely” grew on me cause of a situation I was going through at the time……with a boy…. 4.2 million copies for her is sad……especially when non fans have it too….. 4.2 million for anyone else in the industry is awesome, but coming off of 13 million to 9 million to only 4 (all being new material and not a greatest hits sort of album)….yeah, that’s pathetic.

    What the hell are you talking about…the quality of the music from album to album, not to mention the quality of her voice, has only gone from bad to worse with each release….. If you wanna talk her previous albums being any indication of what this next one will do, then lets talk PURE CRAP…not to mention flop on it’s face after the first week. I don’t even think Christmas sales will help her, and IF they do, come December 20th or so, it’s gonna fall into non existence…..totally!
