Rumor Has It...

Today is Friday and it's a wonderful day for two reasons:

1. I get to wear Jeans to work (and who doesn't love that)
2. Britney Spears new single "Hold It Against Me" allegedly drops today.


Knock her all you want but Britney Spears is my 50's Elvis, my 60's The Beatles Tina Turner, my 70's Cher and my 80's Madonna. I don't give a f*ck that she shaved her head or married K-Fed or annulled a quickie marriage to a childhood friend while she was toasted- I care about her jams that make getting ready to go out fun. I care about her captivating existence that has everyone so rendered by her life. I care about how she used to look better than ANYONE in anything. I don't care about the obvious reasons she is made fun of.
The first time I saw Britney, I think I instantly became obsessed- she was my new girl I wanted to be. As she continued down her professional path and her outfits got more scandalous, her dance moves more provocative and her makeup more extravagant and I grew more and more into a girl who wanted to exhibit her sexuality, I became Britney crazed - wanted the tummy, wanted the look, wanted the life.

And then in 2006 and onward as I watched her crumble, I felt sad for my Icon. I guess it was lonely at the top for her. I learned a lot about the human aspects of celebrities and the ability of one to rise above the chaos (even if it takes awhile).

She's not a girl, not yet a woman the same Pop Star she was but she's also not the same girl shaving her head in the middle of the night- she's something new, something different. No matter how much her image has changed, her singles and her music have remained the same fun, upbeat crazy tunes that I love her for. I instantly feel ready to take on the world when I have little Miss Britney Jean Spears in my ears.

Grab the short skirts and high boots (and snakes): It's Friday, January 7th and rumor has it... Britney's new song drops today.


Update: No drop today! Shucks. Though it will certainly be this month.

I used to love Britney Spears! I was in middle school when Hit Me Baby came out and I loved her clean, preppy, schoolgirl look. I've liked her subsequent stuff as well. Can't wait to hear the new single!

Britney back in the day is still someone I want to look like body-wise, even though I've never been a fan! I do love some of her tracks though :)

That's a pretty lace dress Britney is wearing. It must take a lot of courage and inner strength to hold together as a star when the paparazzi and tabloid style TV shows are taking cheap shots and criticizing.
That new single has dropped!!! I'm listening to that new single Britney Spears - Hold It Against Me (Audio) on BritneySpearsVevo's YouTube Channel for the third time in a row right now as I'm typing this. I like it! It's already had over 472,000 views (and climbing fast).
