Okay I just watched the new Britney Spears video, "Hold It Against Me" and I felt the need to blog about my endless love for Ms. Spears. I've been obsessed with Britney since 1999 and in some ways I almost feel like we grew up together. I cheered when she excelled (i.e. her "Oops...I Did It Again" and "Slave 4 U" VMA performances) and was devastated when her life fell apart (i.e. shaving her head, being strapped to a gurney and her "Gimme More" VMA performance) but regardless of whether I was thrilled or depressed I always cared and I can literally think of no other celebrity that am so moved by or care so much about. I don't know if it's her southern charm and endearingly obvious lack of fashion sense or her always catchy music and eye popping videos but I just can't not like the girl. Her first record was released while she was 16 and produced the #1 single "...Baby One More Time" and this year, at the age of 29, she will release her 7th album Femme Fatale, which features fellow #1 single "Hold It Against Me", proving that she has the fan base and staying power of fellow icons like Madonna and Cher. I'm currently slightly drunk and high on a few hits of Britney (a.k.a. I watched her new video like 15 times) so I'll stop rambling but here is a link to the new video and a few of my fave Brit pictures. Enjoy!
