no matter what she sings, it sounds cheesy. i think she just has a cheesy voice.

the production is pretty good though. but i think she passed up the chance to work with Timbaland AND Justin Timberlake (who I hate anyway)!

I didnlt hear the track thats up on this thread but i will listen to it on Thursday when I have the day off because now my parents are home.

I don;t think Britney can make a great comeback because of all the bad press lately(any news at all about a celebrity used to be good news) but America is fed up with celebs negative news stories it seems like currently. Britney just doesnlt fit into today's music I mean her music just doesn't go well into the trends that are popular nowadays.

i agree. all the material she's come out with so far sounds soooo cheesy now. not that it wasn't always cheesy, but now....it sounds worse than ever.

and i don't think this "comeback" will be a sucessful one, because she hasn't done a THING to make herself look better, psychially or reputation-wise. she's so trashy.

Good point. I honestly think no matter what she released in terms of sound or production, it has a good chance of being a flop. Just because of how her image has gone so far downhill in the last couple years, the public will have a hard time taking her seriously anymore. Plus, even before the personal problems she's now in, she hasn't been known for her music in quite awhile, instead being famous more for her all around celebrity factor. Her music is too tied to 1999-2001 (even though "Toxic" was a hit in '03, even for then it seemed like she was slightly outmoded).

Music aside, it's really sad if you think about the downward spiral her life has taken (considering her wholesome-esque image in the beginning), but I suppose she's at least partially responsible for bringing that on herself.

I think one of two things will happen - she'll completely fade away/have a career change/become tabloid fodder as her life goes even further downhill, or this will be her weird "midperiod" before she makes a 2010s comeback.

For better or worse, I'm betting on the former, although I hope I'm wrong.

It's not a good thing though that she's nearing Jacko in the wacko factor.  Now if they did a duet, I would listen to that.  Two wack jobs might not sound too bad.  After all, mathematical logic says that two negatives equal a positive :D

If you could time travel, a duet between them wouldn't be so bad. The 1999 Britney and the 1983 MJ together might make a kinda cool song.

Seriously though, I doubt her musical comeback, even if it happens, will be too long-lasting. For better or worse, she has such an "image" now (both musically, and in the tabloids about her personal life) that she didn't have early on. That's probably one reason her music was popular then...people were paying more attention to it, since she didn't have an instant image at the time. And she did seem alot more innocent/wholesome in 1999 to 2001.

Well, it looks like I might have been wrong when I said her opening up of the VMAs would make her comeback confirmed.  The performance was pathetic (no energy!), the audience was clearly not into it at all, and its getting a ton of scorn all over the media.  Even the Britney fans admit that the perfomance was terrible. 

Looks like her chance at a big comeback has just been ruined...and I couldn't be happier.  Although Sarah Silverman's joke about Britney's kids being "mistakes" was in bad taste, especially when Britney had performed just a couple minutes before.

Subject: Re: New Britney Spears "Gimme More" (2007)

Written By: Zoso on 09/10/07 at 7:22 am

It's a bummer that she did such an awful performance at the vma's. I was really looking forward to it, and I thought she was going to tear the roof off. Oh well. Atleast, hopefully, her new album will be worth a listen. I like "Gimme More" and "Kiss You All Over" (the only songs I've heard so far from the new LP). Them two songs are much better than the two songs I've heard so far from Madonna's new album ("Candy Shop" and "The Beat Goes On"). Madonna's new stuff is horrible.

My prediction is Madonna's new album will be another "American Life". It wont chart well, it wont sell well and fans and crtics alike will rubbish it. As for Britney. She may have some success with the album. But it's doubtful. After the vma's, she now officially over in most people's minds. She pretty much turned away any fans she had. So both Britney and Madonna will bomb this year. However, Mariah will probably own. I am pretty sure her new album will be a huge hit.

And it may seem like a far-out prediction that most of you will disagree with, but I think the fall of Madonna and Britney will cause Michael Jackson's new album to be a huge hit next year. Think about it. Madonna is like the female version of him. A lot of people compare the two. In recent years she has owned the lime-light. After this album is released, and she fades away again. The lime-light will be free for Michael to step into. Also Britney has been called the next Michael Jackson in the sense that she has gone competely nuts. If she continues to fall off the rails she will take all the negative attention away from Michael. So Madonna fading away puts all the postive attention on Michael, and Britney going off the rails takes all the negative attention away from him. It's a win/win situation. Michael's album will be a big hit next year.

I've heard short snippets of two of the songs that will definately be on the album, as well as a complete song (sung by a demo singer, not Michael) which might be on the album. All three songs kick ass. The two short snippets I heard sound very original, fresh and futuristic in the sense that they both seem way ahead of their time. That's been the thing that has made Michael Jackson so successful in the past. He is always one step ahead of everyone else in the industry, and he still is today. I will bet anyone here any amount of money that Michael Jackson's new album will be a huge success and will pretty much dominate 2008 the way Thriller dominated 1983.

So you can put that on the record. Zoso's prediction for the near future of pop music....

- Madonna's new album will bomb.
- Britney's new album will be a minor success, but not what one would call a "hit".
- Mariah's new album will be a big success. She will be the most successful out of her fellow "pop princesses".
- Michael's new album will be a huge hit. It will be one of the biggest albums of 2008.

What do you consider a huge hit? To me, the most recent album's I consider huge hits are The Emacipation of Mimi and Confessions of Dance Floor. Both bordered on 10 million copies sold worldwide and went to #1 in most contries. Plus they won numerous awards each. I can definately see Michael's album going to #1 in most countries, selling close to 10 million (probably around 8-9 million, but only Michael Jackson could break the 10M barrier in today's record industry), and cleaning up at the Grammy's, VMA's, BET's ect.

Do you agree on my points about Madonna's and Britney's downfall making Michael Jackson more popular? If he times the release of his new album right, it could work brilliantly. Madonna fades away, Michael steps up as the 80's popstar who has comeback in a big way. Britney goes off the rails and become the new "whacko", taking the negative attention away from Michael.

Subject: Re: New Britney Spears "Gimme More" (2007)

Written By: Marty McFly on 09/10/07 at 7:52 am

Zoso, you actually make some pretty interesting points. I'm not totally sure I agree with everything, but I do think in the musical sense, Britney is pretty much over by what everyone has said about the VMA performance. When even hardcore fans are saying it's so-so, that's not a good sign. Actually, you could probably argue she's been in a downturn since her 1999-2001 peak. When "Toxic" was a hit in '03, even then it almost seemed like a comeback or an attempt to update herself, as opposed as an actual continuation of her "hot" period.

For better or worse, her personal life has really overshadowed her musical or even her celebrity appeal lately (and I do say that as a semi fan and someone who liked her in the beginning myself). Because of that, it'll be hard for the public to take anything else she does seriously, at least for awhile. I do sort of get where you're coming from in terms of her and Michael almost "switching places" as far as being a joke in the media.

You have to keep in mind though, that even without Michael's controversies over the years, the pop industry itself could prevent him from having a grand scale comeback. Even on the level of Dangerous, let alone Thriller. Yes, he was extremely influential on almost every type of music, dance, fashion or video aspect of pop culture in the 1983+ time. Lots of people will probably continue to be inspired by him....but he is pushing 50. You've gotta admit the '00s are very YOUNG in that respect, alot more than past decades tended to be. With that in mind, I think his CD will be a moderate success. Probably better than Invincible, and with a few hits, but it won't be revolutionary the way his 1983-1992 stuff was. Hey I'm a fan of his too, so I'd like to be proven wrong on that, but I'm looking at it from every angle.

With Madonna, you're probably right. The Dancefloor album was probably just a semi comeback. There's probably some truth in what you were saying about her and MJ not really sharing the spotlight at the same time.

Subject: Re: New Britney Spears "Gimme More" (2007)

Written By: Zoso on 09/10/07 at 8:01 am

That's the biggest problem with Michael. He was so huge from 83-92 that no matter what, no one will ever accept anything he does as a comeback. Even if he sells 10 million copies, has a string of hit singles and cleans up at all the award shows, people wont call that a successful comeback because there was a time where he sold 100 million copies on 1 album, had 6 #1's off the same album and won 8 Grammy awards in one night. He has no hope of every doing that again. No one does. With today's p2p and mp3 technology, no one, not even Michael Jackson, can ever sell anything close to the amount Thriller, Bad or Dangerous sold. It's just not possible. So because of his out-of-this-world success in the 80s and early 90s, people are going to find it very hard to call anything he does from no one, a comeback. Invincible sold 11 million copies, but that was considered a flop by most people. As opposed to the 8 million Confessions on a Dance Floor sold, which was called Madonna's comeback. So Michael is going to find it very hard to be succesful enough for people to accept what he's done as a comeback.

Subject: Re: New Britney Spears "Gimme More" (2007)

Written By: Marty McFly on 09/10/07 at 8:27 am

^ Yeah, the public probably holds him to such a high standard just because he was one of the most influential musicians of the 20th Century. They won't let him live Thriller down (and, to a lesser extent, Bad and Dangerous) because everything has been compared to that. Isn't it weird how even a flop from him probably sells more than alot of artists' "hit albums". I guess it's all relative depending on the performer.

I agree also, on downloading and p2p sales cutting into the sales of CDs in general by any artist. There haven't really been any classic albums since 2004/'05, and no huge musical phenomenons since the boy bands in the late '90s.

One thing about older artists that I've noticed lately, is that their revival is limited to their older stuff back in the '80s. Like, more people will admit to being fans, but the artists themselves won't really have any modern day comebacks with huge new songs (the way, say '60s and '70s artists did during the '80s and '90s). Since Michael had such out of this world success, he might be an exception, but it's hard to say. I'm predicting that Britney and Madonna's fall might actually help his chances somewhat, but it'll still be kinda half and half.

I saw part of Britney's performance on the VMAs. I think bagging on her body is a bit unfair: she's not bad looking for having two kids. The "music" and performance however is a different matter. Total trainwreck all around. Why she chose to lip-sync when she wasn't doing any kind of vigorous dancing is beyond me. The fact she was noticeably out of time with the track didn't help at all. The song was the worst though: "Gimme More" is something that might get played at low rent strip joints. It sounded like cheesy phone sex recorded over a techno track.  I couldn't understand half the lyrics.

Where are we comparing Michael Jackson and Madonna to Britney. Britney was only hot for 2 or 3 years guys. Michael Jackson and Madonna had longevity musically which Britney does not have(at least for now.) As far as Mariah is concerned she is a different artist than Michael Jackson or Madonna.

I think the reasons Britney was because she was at the right place at the right time right in late December 1998(in a music scene sense), the great state of the econmoy at that time(which helped Britney bubblegum brabd of music become big), and her managers had good business tactics for awhile to keep her popularity on the top-heep and she released a CD every year basically(1999, 2000, 2001) but by 2003-2004 she was just not relevant any more or as relevant as she was in 1999-2000. Remember music in 2003 is different from music that was made in 1999.

You have to keep in mind though, that even without Michael's controversies over the years, the pop industry itself could prevent him from having a grand scale comeback. Even on the level of Dangerous, let alone Thriller. Yes, he was extremely influential on almost every type of music, dance, fashion or video aspect of pop culture in the 1983+ time. Lots of people will probably continue to be inspired by him....but he is pushing 50.
Yeah listen to R&B singers Ne-Yo's new song called "Can We Chill" and it sounds like something Michael would or could have done(1983-1992 period.) I mean the production and the vocals that Ne-Yo did in that song sounds very Michael Jackson-esque but Ne-Yo did pull it off very well I think.

I heard Kanye West say he was upset that Britney got the lead off perfromance at the VMA's and Kanye said if it was Justin Timberlake that had a perfromance lead-off for the VMA he would'nt have been mad. Kanye said Britney wasn;t prepared(to perform.)


Yeah, I actually read an article that said pretty much the same thing too. He said he felt sorry for her for having to go out on stage when she wasn't prepared. That probably compounded the backlash she'll end up getting. Her musical stardom period pretty much ended by 2002, but I think ever her hot celebrity period might be coming to an end, at least for now.

Even if she's kinda led the "Paris Hilton lifestyle" recently, I do feel sorry for her in a way, for all the negative attention she's bound to get for all this.

Not to mention Chris Brown's performance at the vma's. He got a louder appluase/cheer for his Billie Jean tribute than any other part of his set. Even Michael Jackson himself commented on it. Which I thought was interesting. Some of you might appreciate this...

“Chris is a bright and shining star whom I enjoy watching perform. I am happy to have had a positive influence on him.”

Sorry to bring Michael Jackson into this. I know a lot of you don't care for him. But you have to admit that alot of things that happened at the vma's had a Jackson-tinge to it. Britney Spears reminds me so much of Michael Jackson. A teen popstar who is now being brutally bashed by the media who are desperately trying to label anything she does as "bizarre". That reminds me of what happened to Michael Jackson so much. And Chris Brown and Rihanna's performance was so MJ-inspired that I can't help but think they were MTV's poor man's subsitute for the real thing. MTV are screaming out for Michael Jackson right now. It's so damn obvious to me. The whole industry is desperately awaiting MJ's new album. An obviously fake MJ song was spread around the internet disguised as the debut single from his new album. As soon as it reached the masses, radio stations all over played it saying it was MJ's new joint. It was quickly denied by his spokewoman, but it jsut goes to show how desperately everyone wants MJ back if they are quick to jump on something so obviously fake.

First off neither Michael Jackson or Britney Spears are teen-pop stars anymore I mean how old is Britney like 25 or 26 now and Michael Jackson hasn't been known as a teen-pop star since his 1st solo album(Off the Wall) at least or his days in the Jackson 5. I do agree with you in that MJ and Britney Spears are a lightning rod for the media to keep on covering the bizzare things that they do though. 

As for Rihanna she remind me of 00s Jody Watley in a way but without the talent Jody had. Chris Brown is what people thought Tevin Campbell would be when Tevin first come onto the scene in 1990 or 1991 but than Tevin Campbell went to be more like a A/c R&B artist in the mold of R&B singer Babyface in 1994.

I do recognize Michael Jacksons his body of work from 1983-1992 but the guy just doesn;t have it what it takes to score a hit nowadays but his influence on today;s musicians is definately there.

The only reason radio stations played what they thought was MJ's new song was so they could make jokes about it.  I mean everyone is sick of Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan jokes, but Michael Jackson jokes live on forever! ;D

♦ Did you hear Macaulay Culkin might consider running the Hurdles?  He had lots of experience jumping fences in his escape from the Neverland Ranch

♦ What's the difference between a reporter and Michael Jackson?  A reporter has a nose for the news.  MJ has a new nose

♦ What's MJ's two favourite songs?
     - 'Playing With the Boys' by Kenny Loggins
     - 'I Fall to Pieces' by Patsy Cline

The song sounds(from what I have heard it)like every Timbaland song thats been produced in the past year. She's not a trendsetter like she was from 1999-2001. She hasn;t improved vocally I don;t think. Maybe she should have waited a couple more years to put out an album. I mean the girl has gone through so much in the past year I mean to put an album out now is questionable.

It looked like that from in the 2003-2004 period she was trying to update her sound because of the glam rap era that had become popular with 50 Cent, Nelly and Chingy in 2003 with a song like "Toxic." In 2005 Britney didn;t put out any new music out there.

2006-2007 I have alot of sympathy for Britney and what she has gone through I wouldn;t call her a whore though. Believe me I wasn;t happy either when Britney became popular in 1999 because basically when she became popular the music scene changed for the worst but I do have sympathy for her and what she has gone through of late.

Spears loses custody of children to ex-spouse By Steve Gorman
Mon Oct 1, 7:12 PM ET



LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Britney Spears' troubled personal life upstaged her bid for a career comeback on Monday as a judge ordered the pop star's ex-husband to take sole custody of their two children later this week.
No reason for the decision was contained in the court order that was made public. Representatives for Spears and her former spouse, Kevin Federline, a dancer and aspiring rap performer, were not immediately available for comment.

that's rotten. Britney owes you $30 bucks. You should sue VMA, and sue Youtube. damn spyware crap  >:(  anyways, I did watch her performance when it aired and I couldn't believe they allowed her to perform, It was bad, but based on so many previous performances where she was well rehearsed, energetic & had her lip synching down pat, she was really good at what she does and expectations are high.. But this VMA performance was the pits and the song sounds so repetitive, I don't know how many times the lyric "Gimme More"  is sung, but what I do know is that it is too many times. over and over. I'm thinking if, the record company wants her to comeback, they need to provide her some serious soul seraching songs, because she has a nice voice and if she gets the right songs, she can come back. can't she? and then she can do a Playboy spread, & then get back into the Vegas Showgirl Pop Princess thing she does so well.  8)

That's true, even though "Toxic" was a pretty big hit, I also thought she seemed like an older artist trying to catch up with the 2003ish sound. I agree about your other point, too. I think she's made some poor choices in her personal life, and even though she's not the best role model (certainly way different than her more innocent, girl next door image in 1999) I do feel sorry for her. She seems like a good person who just slowly went overboard in terms of her hard partying lifestyle. She probably needs to get her life together before she gets her kids back, though.

One more brief thing I'll say about Britney in general - even though I'm not and never was massively into her, I was a semi-fan since 1999. Like, I was enough of a supporter that I would look for the positives whenever something came up about her or she'd get trashed by somebody, etc. That said, even I've started changing my mind about her in the past year or so (probably when she had kids, because by then it wasn't just her to be concerned about). I do think she's a good person, but needs a reality check and probably some time out of the spotlight.

But the point is, you know things aren't looking good when even the hardcore, more devoted fans start turning or changing their opinion.

I notice the song hit #3 in the US.  BTW, does anyone else think all the Britney developments in the past month have done nothing but helped her?  Her VMA performance, the Chris Crocker guy, losing custody, etc. has suddenly got her back in the spotlight.

I think this whole "Britney is terrible" fiasco has done nothing but help her.  Her terrible performance at the VMAs actually got her in the spotlight more than she would if she had put on a decent show.  People are naturally more drawn to complaining about how terrible something is than talking about how good something is.  Then you had the "Leave Britney Alone!"Chris Crocker guy.  Somehow, his video got 2 million views in two days and within a day, it was all over the media, and he got signed to do his own show.  Does anyone else think that this seems manufactured?  How did a guy whose previous videos got 500,000 views over months suddenly get 2 million views in two days, got all over the media within a day, and got his own tv show?  Maybe its the conspiracy theorist in me, but it seems like a manufactured attempt by the media to create more buzz for Britney.  How many other youtube people had their videos get all over the media in a day and get signed for their own show the next day?  All too convenient if you ask me.

All in all, I think this has done nothing but help her.  Had her performance been halfway decent and Chris Crocker not been hyped up by the media, she wouldn't be as high as she is.  Due to all this buzz, people want to hear the song.  Its that simple.

I think "Gimmie More" is soppoused her most sucessful song since "Oops I Did It Again". That's defintely a good omen....This song has actually grown on me. I actually think I would really like it if someone else sang it though, since Britney's vocals make anything sound cheesy.
