dear janet,

this is how you make a comeback.




…on joining the circus

27 09 2008

when i was a child, i used to get upset and threaten my parents that i was gong to run away and join the circus.  sometimes i think that’s exactly what ended up happening…

i imagine that as a circus, um… person, you are often in a different city, have to be able to multi-task to keep the action going in all 3 rings, often find yourself walking fine lines or swinging from one thing to another and no matter what you do, are always surrounded by clowns.

i’m just saying… the parellels are uncanny.  🙂

is she back for real this time?

26 09 2008

while i certainly wouldn’t classify myself as a britney spears fan, i must say that she has churned out more than her fair share of tasty pop smashes over the last decade or so.  just a year ago, millions watched, mouths gaping open in shock, as her highly touted trainwreck of a “comeback” on the mtv vmas crashed and burned.  after that, she released “blackout” to a lukewarm reception and despite not being totally panned by critics and fans, it pretty much stalled.

fast forward a year and miss spears has certainly been through her fair share of life challenges, many of which she brought on herself.   however, most of this year, team britney has been privately plotting a real return and it would appear that they may be on the right track. it seems like she’s been working on getting her life back together and preparing to bounce back into the spotlight the right way.

case in point, britney’s new single “womanizer” that premiered exclusively on nyc’s z100 this morning.  as far as disposable pop music goes, it’s delicious!  like her or not, it’s very hard to argue her cultural influence, one way or the other. i predict this will be a smash and britney will be back on top in no time.  her new album circus will release december 2.
