    i think a better suited elvis song for her to cover could've been "hold you in my heart." got those soulful coos i know she can pull off well. can't help falling in love with u wasn't the best choice for her. i know it was a spontaneous and non serious sorta thing but yeah as far as translating onstage goes, it's best for her to choose songs that compliment her voice.

    I agree. I think she should have chosen a Madonna song as well, considering it was a reply to her Toxic cover. Like A Prayer or Cherish would have sounded sweet and not strain-y.

    besides the vma performance, how did Blackout have elvis thematics? 

    was the album cover elvis-influenced?

    She had this whole rebirth concept going on for the theme. It was a continuation of the foreshadowing she was hinting at with Mona Lisa and the Everytime video. The Gimme More video and the whole funeral scene was her burying her former blonde self and giving life to the new bruntette vixen Britney. There were pop art posters of Elvis on the club walls in BTS photos of the set. She wanted to center her "comeback" to be Elvis inspired.

    she has all these amazing musical inspirations to look up to and she locks herself in with Selena gomez. it's like wtf are u doing britney.

    just gimme a sign 'o' the times by prince influenced album :whitney:

    2007 killed her drive. She had all these Elvis thematics going on for Blackout and once Circus was label controlled, she's just been a passenger since. Glory having a smidge of personality has regained my hope because I seriously thought she had lost her ear for pop after the 1-2 punch of Britney Jean / Pretty Girls.

    im dying, the JLO fans on facebook are commenting about how awesome her show is listing all the positive things and that they're sad to see it go.

    meanwhile, britney's fans throwing end of piece of me parties complaining about the tacky outfits and bad choreo.

    We're truly such bitches, I bet you Britney is even happier. :tiffcackle:

    It's curious cause she's not credited as background vocalist anywhere but the song appears in her web :umsaywhat:

    It's definitely her, she's just a ghost singer on the track. She wouldn't list it on her website for no reason either.

    OK. I get what you mean. I don't agree entirely with it but each to their own.

    I just don't see how wanting more than what you have is a bad thing. It's the main reason she still has a sucessful career.

    I’m not saying it’s a bad thing at all. I have no bad blood towards someone that wants and craves to be successful at their careers, what a silly thing for me to be angry about. :orangu:

    What does tick me off is dishonesty, so if you’re going to pull all the stops out and center everything around a gimmick, don’t try to act like you’re above it (which was my issue with Gaga back then, among others). And it’s not like it’s even Beyonce, it’s more her stans that gas everything up. It’s almost as bad as the Army that use the Baby and Oops outsold arguement. It’s tired. :umsaywhat:

    No. It's more like this:

    Beyonce drags the industry for not focusing on making good bodies of work and only focusing on selling quick lil singles. Beyonce releases a good body of work and, at the same time, quick lil singles between the eras. Two years later: Beyonce still makes quality bodies of work and still releases quick lil singles between her eras except, this time, they're sucessful.

    If she was dropping albums like Rihanna's and the side collabs, you'd have a point, but she isn't. She's following her words and is releasing quality bodies of work. Once again: she wasn't dragging quick lil singles, she was dragging the fillered albums.

    I already said I understand. But she can't have her cake and eat it too. It's hypocritical. Why can she have both but Rihanna only have one? An artist that's solely focused on making good bodies of work would be happy and leave it at that with their acclaim and respect. But Beyonce, she has to have it all. And she can have it all if she wants, but her ruse will be shattered in the process as nothing more than a gimmick to sell her album. Period.

    And once again, it doesn't. She was bashing the current state of the industry. As long as her albums are cohesive pieces of work, she's not being a hypocrite, because, once again, she wasn't bashing quick lil' singles, she was bashing bad albums disguised by quick lil' singles. Is it that hard for you to understand this? :outwithit:

    I already told you I understand, doesn't mean she's immune to it.

    It's like Chipotle dragging McDonalds for using mystery meat when their meat is all natural. But then, two years later Chipotle decides because of supply and demand, they're going to use mystery meat in addition to their natural meat for a profit. Same thing applies here. :howiroll:
