People call Britney Spears a ‘flop’ . Here’s a little definition of flop:
The act of flopping.
The sound made when flopping.
Informal. An utter failure.
Do any of them sound like Britney? No.
If you want to get serious here lets compare Britney’s 2nd CD (Oops) with Christina 2nd CD (Stripped). Who outsells that? Or even Britney debut album which sold over 14 million worldwide compared to Christina.
I wouldn’t call Britney or Christina either a flop. Both have sold good. But it seems more of the stuff on popdirt says Britney is a flop.
Baby One More Time has sold over 14 million albums world wide. Flop? I didn’t think so. Same with Oops which sold over 9 million. ‘Britney’ and ITZ might not have sold as much but does that make them a flop? No way. ‘Slave 4 You” was a huge hit and people liked it. Don’t forget ‘Overprotected’ released two different videos. Britney appeared in Austin Powers with a cameo and her songs ‘Boys’.
In The Zone, there’s no denying had some good songs. Whether of not it sold much. You know that even people who hated Britney loved “Toxic”. “Everytime” also caused a lot of popularity because of its shocking video and lyrics about Justin Timberlake.
You cannot call Britney Spears’ Greatest Hits: My Prerogative a flop just yet. It may not be doing well in America but are we forgetting it went #1 in many other places including France? Don’t forget that it won the title of “Most Selling Female Greatest Hits Album Ever” in the UK? That’s a hard award, I mean she beat out Madonna, Kylie, Shania, Janet, Mariah, and more. So and that’s a flop?
