  1. On November 27, 2007, Britney Spears released Piece of Me, the second single off Blackout. It was written by Christian Karlsson, Pontus Winnberg (Bloodshy & Avant) along with Klas Åhlund. The electropop song talks about Britney's relationship with the media. Despite the unwritten rule of not writing songs that talked about Britney's personal life, the producers recorded the song anyway and sent it to Britney, who loved it and decided to record it. Piece of Me was actually the last song of the album to be recorded. According to Winnberg, she learned the lyrics of the song in her car while she was heading to the studio, where she finished the song in less than half an hour. Robyn, who also recorded a demo of the song, provides background vocals, alternating with Åhlund the "piece of me's" that we hear in the chorus in a robotized voice, while Bloodshy & Avant sing the "Extra! Extra!". After the album release in October, Britney talked about the song in a small interview she had with Ryan Seacrest over the phone The song peaked at #18 in the BBH100 but hit the #1 on the US Dance Club Songs chart. It was Top 10 and several countries, including #1 in Ireland. She's performed the song in her Circus Tour, Femme Fatale Tour, and her Vegas Residency, which was named after the track, Britney: Piece of Me. In 2008 a Remix EP was released The music video wasn't released until December, so we'll "celebrate" that later
  2. On October 25, 2007, Britney Spears released her fifth studio album Blackout. The dance-pop / electropop record was executive produced by Britney, and recorded between 2006 and 2007. Other collaborators of the album were Danja, Bloodshy & Avant, Sean Garrett, Jim Beanz, Keri Hilson, The Neptunes, J. R. Rotem, among others. Blackout incorporates Euro disco and dubstep influences and its lyrical content revolves around fame, ***, clubbing and the media scrutiny she was subject of during the time of its recording. Though the album was scheduled for a November release, it had to be rushed released due to a leak of the tracks ahead of time. It was released on the 25 in Spain, and in the subsequent days it was released across other European countries and Australia. It was officially released in the US on October 30. In June Britney had posted on her website a poll for the fans to choose the title of the album. The options were: OMG Is Like Lindsay Lohan Like Okay Like What If the Joke Is on You Down Boy Integrity Dignity Ultimately, in October Jive Records announced that the album would come out in November and that it would be titled Blackout. According to Jive it “refers to blocking out negativity and embracing life fully.” The album peaked at #2 on the US BB200, becoming Britney's first album not to reach the top position on that list. It was also #2 in France, Mexico and UK, but it did reach #1 on the European Top 100 Albums charts, as well as the Australian, Canadian and Irish lists. Three singles were released off this album: Gimme More, Piece of Me and Break the Ice. Besides the VMA's 2007 performance, the album didn't receive more promotion except for phone interview with Ryan Seacrest for his radio show. No tour accompanied this album either, however, many of the Blackout tracks were performed during the Circus Tour in 2009, as well as subsequent shows of Britney. She mentioned Heaven on Earth as a highlight of the album. According to Ezekiel Lewis of The Clutch, Radar was also intended to be released as a single but was pushed back once she started recording new material (after being placed under the conservatorship). In 2017, The Fader did an article for its 10th anniversary, where Britney commented about the album Danja also shared his experience recording the album You can read more of it here. In an interview uploaded to Britney's official Youtube channel to promote Circus (released a year after Blackout), Britney is asked to compare both albums and describes Blackout as darker and edgier: In 2008, Blackout won Best Album award at the MTV Europe Music Awards, and also International Album of the Year at the NRJ Awards. In 2012, the album was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's music library. You can listen to the album here:
  3. On October 5, 2007 Britney Spears officially released her Gimme More music video through the iTunes store, after having leaked the day before. It debuted on October 8 on TRL and other outlets. It was directed by Jake Sarfaty and it was filmed on July 19, 2007 in Los Angeles. An alternative version with unseen footage leaked in 2011.
  4. Do you think she is ever going to perform there again? A small part of me says not but then another part says that she will. If she does she would have a lot of pressure on her due to how bad 2007 went and the media would go crazy... Thoughts?
  5. “Baby **** you...” I mean the way she says that line slayed my 15 year old existence and still does. The ATTITUDE. The SASS. The NOT giving a F! We love this Britney. This song has always been intriguing to me. It’s so dark, gritty, truthful....B girl was serving a mood. Anyone have thoughts on this song? Know any fun facts? Memories? Who is it really about? I'd be curious to hear everyone’s opinions. Now there’s another ringing my bell...
  6. Was just thinking about the 2007 Allure photoshoot and how amazing it was. And how in I Am Britney Jean she didn't recall the shoot at all. That's our girl. I can't locate the article but I remember she arrived, took the photos, and left. Does anyone have the Allure article link? I know there was no interview, but I can't remember what Allure said. I think I recall it being super shady. What do you think was going on that day? In the gallery below, the makeup artist recalls her being very present and animated on set and talking about her kids, etc. The hair stylist said that when she arrived and took off her blonde wig, she had her inch-long hair and seemed shocked by it. Do you think she did the photoshoot, saw the photos, got feeling really insecure and bolted? https://www.allure.com/gallery/britney
  7. With all the drama going on I feel like I need to pull a Jesus and resurrect Clitneys place on this forum, people usually get eggs at Easter but this year I'm giving y'all leaks ******* !! https://britneyspearsunreleased.tumblr.com/post/184363248852/im-a-slaveeeee-4-u-hq-snippet-from-the
  8. Podcast - WITHOUT A VOICE "Did everyone miss the true nature of Britney Spears’ ‘meltdown’? Now, 10 years later, there is growing attention being paid to a little known legal concept that Spears is under, called a ‘conservatorship’. This episode takes a look at exactly what happened to Britney Spears on February 18th, the day of her infamous head-shaving incident. And, since a series of ensuing missteps, and triumphs, over the years, Jenks will question if she’ll forever forego the right to even get a cup of coffee without permission from her father and lawyer." ---------------------------------------------------------------- This guys usually focuses on famous figures and historical events - Winston Churchill, Princess Diana, Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali ... When I saw Britney Spears on the list, I was .. perplexed. It's not someone who loves her or hates her. He doesn't go down the rabbit hole. Doesn't subscribe to any conspiracy theories. It's all pretty objective. If you are interested in the psychology behind what happened 10-11 years ago .. I would listen. He points out some interesting parallels. He really gets into how she was a machine. He talks about pop stars today .. and their ability to have more control due to social media .. (What would of happened if Twitter were around in 2007?) He talks about how the GP underestimated her intellect .. etc. *No I don't know this guy haha but this is the kind of stuff I could talk about with you guys for dayssss*
  9. So I was curious and as a baby stan I'm doing my bit of research. I of course knew about the 2007 VMA's before stanning Godney, but it feels so weird to see this happening around the same time. It could be the bad quality of the videos, but she doesn't look out of it at all, she looks like she's in sync with the music, and she puts on a good show. Obviously no live vocals, but that's to be expected. Although, the pointing at her nose on Toxic while on the "I need a hit" part is really dark and took me by surprise, I'm so used to POMney that it looks tragic and makes me feel bad for her. Also, interesting that she performed Breathe on Me, must be one of her favourites. I know she said it would've been a single had she not got injured, or something like that. So my main questions would be, what the hell happened between this and the VMAs? I'm assuming this is before the VMAs because there are no Blackout songs but it's clearly 2007. What did fans at the time think of the whole thing? I'm guessing people were looking forward to Blackout. The 2007 VMAs were supposed to be her comeback, but we know now it wouldn't happen until later.

    Hold on...

    I was listening to best of both worlds (from Hannah Montana) for some nostalgia then I realized at the end of the album version of the song Miley says "you get the best of both worlds without the shaving the hair you can go any where" I'm shook tbh
  11. So... People and media are starting to compare Cara D. with britney's shaved moment: heres the pic: https://www.instagram.com/p/BTor3Eajsp2/ two articles I stumbled across on FB (They're in Spanish): http://www.swagger.mx/radar/cara-delevigne-britney-cabello-rapada http://los40.com.mx/los40/2017/05/03/actualidad/1493830202_214170.html thoughts? At least they keep talking bout brit right... RIGHT??!!??
  12. Screw the head shaving and the bad vmas preformance blackout was a masterpiece and it was definitely one of Britney's best albums
  13. She would have looked like this and probably would have killed the choreo
  14. Les Inrockuptibles named Blackout as "the perfect pop album" and the best Britney album. They explain how the GP was too busy focusing on her breakdown to really appreciate the album back in 2007. This magazine is usually very critical about pop singers so it's great to see they acknowledge Blackout as the masterpiece that it is! Sorry for my english but I had to share! http://www.lesinrocks.com/2017/01/11/musique/en-2007-britney-spears-sortait-lalbum-pop-parfait-mais-vous-etiez-trop-occupes-par-son-petage-de-plombs-11899645/
  15. Alright.. before y'all bash on me and call me a flop fan, I am aware of some aspects on this certain topic. But I want a full detailed explanation about her breakdown that occured in 2007/2008. I need to understand it and study it fully and thoroughly. Thank you!
  16. Can't believe this was 9 years ago. I remember seeing the snippet uploaded by MTV as a promo, and felt that it was not going to be a good performance. Before the live performance, I just hoped she would pull through even though the dancing was basic. I felt sad after watching the performance, and the succeeding news articles were largely negative. I remember listening to Blackout for the first time, and thinking that the album was a huge departure from the Britney that I knew. Listening to Blackout prior to posting this made me realize that this was the peak of her being an artist, while not caring about commercial appeal. She didn't care much about promoting - she focused on creating a record that she is personally proud of. I remember her label even having a poll on what the album title should be before deciding on "Blackout." I think she came up with a good record, and let the label and everyone else handle the succeeding promo. It wasn't a great time to be a Britney fan, and I'm damn proud I stood with her even though I have my own misgivings from time to time. 2007 was not a great time for Britney personally, but it was a great time for Britney as an artist. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNlzgGYKs0w
