Circusgate 2008 Bitchfest

{nl}{nl}

{nl}The cover art for Britney’s upcoming studio album Circus was released Friday afternoon, and fans, to say the least, have mixed emotions about the cover. OK, let’s face it… the cover kinda blows. I mean, a lot of you legit thought Britney.com was playing a Halloween joke on you.{nl}

{nl}I’m ready for Hurricane Britney Fans to go bonkers and incessantly defend the cover – as if not liking the cover makes you less of a fan. True, there are some of you that do like the cover, and I want to laugh at you respect that – I mean, anything after Blackout’s hideous cover is definitely an upgrade. Seriously, I would rather have seen Adnan’s landing strip zoomed in then see that awful colorized yellow and orange cover ever again. {nl}

{nl}Though few of you do like it, many of you don’t. It’s OK, embrace it; you’re still a fan – and one with an opinion! If we all thought everything Britney and/or her people did was cupcakes and rainbows, then we would probably have lost interest 9 years ago.{nl}

{nl}I too have some issues with the cover / tracklisting. Instead of being hostile and immature like I normally am, I figured a nice list of things they ****** up on would be more appropriate. Don’t consider this calling her label out. Read this as constructive-criticism that hopefully the higher-ups will take into consideration. One thing I love about us crazy ******* is we have a voice – why not utilize it!{nl}

{nl}Drum roll please…{nl}

{nl} {nl} So the border? It has to go. It doesn’t give it that {nl} vintage look the 8th grade Photoshoppers were going for. All it does is {nl} distract me from Britney’s pretty face and give me a headache by making {nl} my eyes travel in a ******* square. Crayola called, they want their {nl} tacky colors back.
{nl} {nl} Yes, we get it, Britney is the biggest star in the world {nl} – don’t remind us by placing 39 of them around the cover (there’s {nl} actually 39. I counted). In fact, they really bug me. Besides, {nl} Britney might offend her Jewish fans. Mazaltoff!
{nl} {nl} I know the thing {nl} nowadays is {nl} to airbrush the hell out of celebrities, and they did to Britney. But {nl} they forgot to Photoshop Christina Aguilera’s ****** off her {nl} armpit. If you’re going to airbrush, then commit! She’s beautiful either {nl} way.
{nl} {nl} Seriously? “Radar” is a bonus track? What’s so bonus {nl} about that? We’ve had this **** for over a year. 5 bucks says the dude {nl} that created the tracklist didn’t even realize “Radar” was on {nl} Blackout. If you’re going to include a Bonus track then make sure {nl} it’s ******* new… or at least a remix. Throw on the cut Lady Gaga {nl} track and call it a day. Or at least a mastered “Sugarfall.”
{nl} {nl} Speaking of cut tracks. I want moarrr (hence the “Gimme {nl} More” cap. Heh. Get it?). Would it kill you to throw in a few extra {nl} tracks? We know at least a dozen confirmed tracks that have now been {nl} scrapped. Let US be the judge if the tracks weren’t hot enough for the {nl} album. People buy Britney’s used gum off eBay. I’m pretty sure we’ll do {nl} just fine with some “less hot” tracks.
{nl} {nl} Finally, I understand Britney’s PR {nl} team wants her to look like the innocent bubblegum popstar we all fell {nl} in love with, but I envisioned Circus much darker. Obviously the {nl} last few years were some of Britney’s hardest. Why not have her “come {nl} back” as a new, more mature artist. Not this pre-packaged “Hi I’m {nl} Britney and I’m a cutie-pie” tra la la. Don’t get me wrong, I already {nl} printed out this album cover a few times since the last few copies I had got {nl} dirty (TMI?), but I’m ready for the next level.

{nl}
{nl}I think we can all agree that overall the cover and tracklist are nice. I’ll forget the fact that Britney (allegedly) has a song about Adnan called “Mmm Papi.” Maybe it’s a song about how our hero Kevin is “Father of the Year,” but I have serious doubts. {nl}

{nl}Here’s to looking forward and having a renewed positive outlook on the upcoming era. Just another bump in the long and winding road that is Britney Spears. Hey, if she likes it, I like it…{nl}

{nl}I think.
