Review Summary: If the Britney Spears Story doesn’t quite have the subject’s full attention, it’s at least caught the attention of some people, and the results are inspired.Let’s drop all pretence for a moment. Let’s not pretend to be outraged by Britney Bitch’s tabloid behaviour; let’s not feign concern for the poor kids who’ve been turned over to the custody of Superdaddy Kevin Federline; and most of all let’s not hold the woman to some unrealistic standard of artistic integrity which she’ll probably never be capable of. Britney’s never been a particularly good writer, she probably can’t sing in key for any extended period of time, but what she does have is character.
The nasty custody battle. The hair-razing meltdown. The trips to rehab. The abysmal VMAs performance. Shall we go on? All of 25-year-old Britney Spears’ recent setbacks suggest that her fifth CD, ominously titled Blackout, would fan the flames of her hot mess of a year. Well, brace yourself for ….
Review Summary: What do you mean there's no tunes?Nobody needs reminding of the train-wreck Britney's become, so let's just get on to the cold facts - this is the most important album Britney Spears is ever likely to release. It's as simple as that. Right now she's clinging onto a career by her fingernails, because she'll know as well as anyone that the public can only take so much of one person self-destructing before they turn.
