Britney's Piece of Me - Love It or Leave It?

Britney's Piece of Me - Love It or Leave It?

We were teased the other day with Brit's new hot video and now we have "Piece of Me" in its entirety. It's definitely a major improvement although still not the old Britney. This video is clearly a step up from Gimme More and the creative concept is so much better this time around although anything is better than strip pole dancing. Take a look and tell us if you love it or leave it!

No thank you. To all of her music and everything that she does and stands for, which is not much good at all anyway.

I wasn't aggravated at all. A bit shocked that you would tell me I don't enjoy life and take it there, but that wasn't hard to laugh off. I can defend my point of view and discuss pop culture without taking it seriously. No one is right or wrong in the matter of opinion, so there is no big deal! ~

Jillness, you don't know why he committed suicide.... As for Britney - do you think a person of 'sound mind' would do all of the things that you described above? Ill mental health can come from all kinds of things, including alcohol and drugs and trauma. Sometimes people are too close to the problem to see it - they think they are in control, but clearly, they are not. And that makes them bad people? Obviously Kurt and Britney are different - the differences are obvious. However, it wasn't Kurt as a person that I was discussing so much as how the media reacted to his irresponsibleness and how people continue to excuse it, while Britney gets crucified. Hence, that is a double standard. If you want to think that she is scum of the earth, then that is fine. You don't have to like her! I am not trying to change your mind and it is clear that you're set in your ways. As a mother myself, I feel for her children, and I don't understand her actions. But, I am not going to come to conclusions when I do not personally know the girl and I do not know what is driving her to act the way she does. She is still a human being and I am so happy that I do not have to live under that type of scrutiny. I would have cracked a long time ago. I am really kind of burned out on discussing this. It is pointless. I like the cd. I like the video. We will have to agree to disagree and I hope you have a lovely holiday. At any rate, I apologize for getting you so aggravated.

You say that you wish others were less judgemental, while you simultaniously judge others. More than a wee bit hypocritical, IMO. I didn't back pedal at all on Kurt. If you honestly don't see the difference between Kurt Cobain and Britney Spears, I can't help you. He killed himself because his music was becoming too corporate, and Britney can't do music with out a corporation guiding the way. HUGE difference. Nice way to avoid the fact that your mental illness excuse is something that is not based in fact. The reason that your "double standard" theory doesn't hold water, is that Britney's media scrutiny is brought on by herself. If she didn't want people to inspect her parenting skills, she wouldn't have x17 over to take pictures of her at her house with her kids. If she didn't want her marriage inspected, she wouldn't have created Chaotic to showcase her home movies. She wouldn't get in cars with paparazzi, she wouldn't wear their hats, have them auction off the only signed copy of her cd, tell them she loves them, and make them millions of dollars by flashing her privates for their profit. If someone snuck into your home and took pictures of your children, would you partner with them in an auction? No, not unless you wanted them at your home in the first place. She pimps her children out when she needs "good mother" PR, and that is inexcusable.

I thought the video was OK. I'd imagine this might do better than "Gimme More" if only because the video has a little bit of a concept. And it doesn't take much of a concept to get on TRL these days...If someone likes the video, great. If they don't, great. It sounds like a lot of minds are made up already, and going around and around probably won't change who a person is a fan of, or not a fan of.

If you feel that Britney is not a worthy artist....that is your opinion, just as the opposite is mine. Nice backpedal on the Kurt reference, because that's all it was, a reference - you felt the need to defend him and his 'vision' and that it somehow excused his irresponsibleness. My point is that there is a double standard in the entertainment industry, as I also pointed out from previous other examples. This is why Britney and her particular situation and how the public deals with it strikes such a nerve with me. This is why, after a year of browsing this site, I finally just signed in, and spoke up. I am not so silly as to think that I will change your way of thinking. I don't care in particular if you like Britney or not or if you buy her cd. But every person - famous or not, irresponsible or not, crazy or not - deserves some level of respect.

I just really wish people were more tolerant of others. Less judgmental. Period. Everyone has issues. Everyone has problems. Everyone has done stupid things. The entertainment industry is full of airbrushing, damage control, and gossip. It is really easy to sit back and say this and that when it's not us who is under the media's scrutiny.

Ha! No need to remind me that there were 3 people in Nirvana. Waaay off topic, so I am confused as to what this has to do with this conversation. Need I remind you that Nirvana wrote their own music, and didn't just show up to "punch it in". I don't think someone needs to be admirable to be a great artist. But if you aren't a great artist, and you aren't a nice person, what good are you in the public eye? I am different from the people that enjoy watching her downfall. I wish she would keep private matters private so I don't have to see it or hear about it. We don't owe her an audience, just because some people think she USED to be entertaining.

I think there is a HUGE vast enormous difference between Kurt Cobain trying to shock people out of their comfort zones...and Britney walking down Rodeo with her cheeks hanging out. What did her cheeks have to do with her music? Kurt's rebellion was carried over from his music...notice the lack of guitar work, etc. He was really trying to make a statement artistically, not just trying to get attention from magazines. To compare the 2 is really just silly in my opinion. But go for it, if it makes you happy! ***None of the courts have said ANYTHING about Brit being mentally ill. So your assumptions about her not being in a sound mental state are just guesses and gossip.*** The idea that she is too self absorbed to be bothered with her kids or responsibilities IS supported in court documents, witness, monitors, etc. Those are the FACTS we have to go on. And I didn't say you were naive. If you look back, I said you sounded sweet (now, not so much). The fact that a video makes you get so catty to someone else and suggest that they don't "enjoy life" makes it clear that it IS more than just a video to you. If it was just about your booty, you wouldn't be telling my booty it doesn't enjoy life. What I meant by saying you were misled, is that there are some common everyday occurances in the lives of celebs/rich/famous people that I have a lot of expereince with. Brit's charade that she is the victim of the media and that the paparazzi are out of her control IS a lie. It is possible to avoid the paps 80% of the time. Angelina Jolie has been in LA filming for 2 months now, and you never see paparazzi shots of her unless she if filming. That is because there are small steps that famous people can take to avoid the paparazzi. Brit not only ignores these steps, she frequently goes to places like Robertson blvd. to go TO the paparazzi. That is what I meant by your being mislead.

But since this a "Britney Spears" board, let's stay on topic.

Kurt Cobain led a very unstable life, and it came to tragic end. Unfortunately Ms. Spears is also leading a very unstable life, and at this moment in time, her life choices are speaking for louder than her "music". The Anna Nicole Smith tragedy was no ones fault but her own. She surrounded herself with "yes men" and enablers....Howard K. Stern and the doctor that was doping her daily. That is no different than Spears. While the public sat back and laughed at Anna Nicole, hence her show...the public has learned, that Spears' situation is NOT funny. But unfortunately there is nothing that anyone can do, but Spears.PS: I am not a fan of her music.

And perhaps I should remind you that there were 2 other people in Nirvana - one of which who has gone on to great success on his own - Dave Grohl. He was a force behind alot of Nirvana's music - not just Kurt.I don't care 'how artistic someone is' - if you're going to criticize someone's character ....do it across the board. Be consistent. Kurt was a lousy father and lousy husband who often acted out when he didn't get his way. Don't justify him because he had a 'vision'.

Actually, Kurt did go outside with his pants off.Or he wore make-up.Or he wore a dress.Or he did a multitude of other things to call attention to himself, but then yet he complained about it. He was every bit as self-absorbed as it would appear as Britney is. Even so, I bought Nirvana's records and I will continue to buy Britney's for as long as I like what she releases.People do all sorts of erratic things that don't make sense or seem frivolous to others when they are not in a sound mental state. I stand by the fact that those actions do not make Britney any less of a person. You can think that her song and video are poor - that is your opinion and that's cool. However, the majority seem to see something positive in the effort.I am not naive, so there is nothing misleading about Ms. Spears. I take the music for what it is - music. I don't think that it's some grand personal statement. It's just a song. If it makes my behind move, then I like it. I don't roll my eyes and go "Oh my, this sucks" in an air of superiority. Try it sometime - you might enjoy life a little bit more.

One more thing... Kurt Cobain put in a MILLION times more thought into his music than Brit puts in to her music/performances/videos. People over looked his personal life because he had something to offer artistically and he worked very hard to protect his vision. (Check out the making of "Videos that Rocked the World" on VH1-Classic for more information).
