    I have a hard time listening to Femme Fatale.

    The songs themselves are probably great, but I can't stand the production on most of them. The EDM sounds horribly dated and grating to me. 

    This is how I feel about Britney Jean. Femme Fatale's sound is dated but it isn't sloppy. It's by far her most cohesive album in her discography and it really did help open a few doors for dubstep music to enter mainstream pop. "Hold It Against Me" was the first song popularized from a mainstream artist to contain those influences, and even then Britney used the genre years earlier in "Freakshow".

    Curious what that would sound like. I really don't understand what stylings work as hits anymore for commercial pop these days. I feel very out of touch with radio/mass music culture.

     

    Also because in terms of Britney's catalogue, to me FF 2.0 is what BJ was intended to be/basically is. Both have so much generic filler, and are mainly comprised of simple EDM songs that were more about producers getting to play with noises than actually advancing the genre. Disregarding all BJ controversy, the tone of the actual album is definitely similar to FF. 

     

    I can certainly get on board with the theory of B10 being more of like a Circus...but Glory feels like ITZ 2.0. And if BJ was FF 2.0...then as always I'm praying for Blackout 2.0. 

    I've gotten turned off with pop radio, I don't really listen anymore as well. I just plug in my phone. From what I can tell by the charts and from what I've actually heard, it's a whole mix of slightly similar styles.

    You have electronic hip-hop like "Black Beatles", EDM pop like The Chainsmokers, dancehall hip-hop from Drake, synth-disco R&B from Bruno Mars and then you throw in reggae influenced pop from Bieber, Ariana and then you have stuff like Britney's fave song...

    So there's a trend with electronic / hip-hop / pop style music with influences from dancehall, reggae and R&B.

    But...

    This is why I feel that Glory is not ITZ 2.0. It's most likely a new version of Circus due to the blending of different styles in the album. In the Zone had more of a theme where as Glory jumps around like Circus did.

    I feel like Glory was good enough for commerical radio but once again, her team does not know how to properly promote or market her anymore, they focus entirely on giving Vegas promo.

    Seriously, in the last months of promo when did she actually acknowledge her new album other than the E! News spot when she was on set and she only talked about Make Me...?

    Britney had better quality control with Glory as opposed to Britney Jean. I'm praying that RCA realizes Glory's commercial dud was a result of their poor planning and Team Britney's poor execution rather than Britney and the music itself, because at that rate, we're headed back into Britney Jean / Pretty Girls territory.


  2. Britney would actually put Sam in the ad. :orangu:

    I don't see it as part of the Fantasy line though. The name, fragrance notes and bottle design are generally feminine.

    If she ever does a male fragrance, it'll be a new line and probably will be called "Womanizer".

    I can see that.

    I'm not sure how I'd feel about that, to be honest. I'd rather have more of a Blackout or ITZ, but I can see RCA pushing her into recording trendy bangers.  :britstare11:

    As long as she's pumped about that, it's great. I guess.

    Same, but I'd be deluding myself if I said I don't love Femme Fatale. It's in my Top 3 after Blackout and In the Zone.

    Is it bad that i lowkey live for this?

    No, because dance is what Britney excels in and what the public associates her with the past decade.

    DYWCO? could be the perfect song for a video like that tbh, with like her dancing at a club picking the boy up to come over and etc. Only reason why I'd accept it as the next single :mhm:

    For some reason I imagine a MJ "The Way You Make Me Feel" style video for this song. Britney meeting a sexy guy at a party and then takes a walk through the streets outside with him, doing sexy and flirty choreo to excite him and it ends with a hot routine in the rain at the end. :feelingmyself:

    they're probably waiting to record her in the most unflattering marcomarco outfits .

    Marco's been gone since mid 2015. :orangu:

    and they're not going to release the show on BR until it's over. why would they release a show on HD home video that they want people to buy tickets to and go see? :cutesybrit:

    I don't know. For me, the most disturbing part of that documentary was how little she had to do with any of her ventures, perfume or music. She walked into the recording studio to record several of those songs and it was as if she had never heard them or even heard OF them. I know things have changed but for me, that was a disillusioning documentary.  It was sad to see how depressed she was but also how little she had to do with any of her brand. 

    Thank God she has taken control; I value her work so much more now. I still doubt she has anything to do with the fragrances though. 

    Well Circus was mostly an album to get her back into the public's good graces, obviously she wasn't going to be as meticulous about it as she was about Blackout. She still had input, just remember that it was only a few months after hitting rock bottom. You wouldn't see her being so passionate about it when it was meant to be as safe a record as possible.

     Honestly I stop giving a single f**k about these when I saw how much creative input she has in these fragrances during For the Record.  They literally walked up to her with the finished product and in the most Paris Hilton voice she was goes "yea I like it." 

    That's not fair when she's always been involved since the start. Look up interviews about Curious and the original Fantasy. They showed her the finished product to get her approval, it most likely wasn't the first time she saw it.

    Oh not another Fantasy perfume :moorangu: 

    I've actually lost count of how many there are. Poor Curious/Believe/Radiance/Private Show not getting the follow ups it deserves.

    And i've stopped buying them because i own too many bottles.

    Is there pics of what it looks like?
