Britney will never be as successful as she once was

I LOVE your post! The one thing I might go against is what I put in bold. The internet helped me when it concerns music. It helped me discover more music ifrom a musician if I heard an older song I like. A couple of examples: I like a lot of Kate Bush and Bryan Ferry's music. They showed up on my radar a few years ago because I like listening to (what was) VH1 Classic. I was able to go on youtube and listen to the rest of their catalogue to see what I liked and if it was worth buying regular albums or if it was best to stick with a 'greatest hits' album. 

So I kinda think the old method + the internet goes hand in hand for me. 

 

But nowadays people won't discover artists like you mentioned because Spotify won't tell them about them cuz there not "RELEVANT RIGHT NOW" 

Technology has helped to an extent,  but nowadays it's used to pick specific music for us. Alot of dance music is the same now because people aren't experimenting enough because people listen to what other people are listening to.  YouTube is great though obviously :)

To her team, success is about making money, and she's the 8th on the list of top-earning female musicians, so she is pretty successful.

Britney has been on top a lot before, but no one can be on top forever.

To me, she's the most successful now because she's healthy and happy. I'd rather she have that over any chart success because I genuinely am a fan of Britney Spears as a human being, not just the icon that she is.

She clearly doesn't enjoy being a celebrity as much as making music or being a mom, and I'm happy she's able to find the balance in between now.

Beyonce? Taylor swift? No. They have not achieved anywhere NEAR the phenomenon that was Britney Spears. She was like the princess of America like Diana was to the UK. Yes the gp love Beyoncé and they like Taylor but they cannot be compared. Britney was always photographed but became one of the most photographed people in the world ever in the span of 2006-2008. She was the most searched person on the Internet for those years as well. I'm not saying that no one will ever achieve that fame. But one one has come close since that time. Beyonce may be able to achieve it but she's in control of everything or atleast jay z is. The paps don't follow her like they did Britney or Diana. But Beyonce doesn't have enough iconic or legendary moments to really compare. The closest she's had to something iconic is the single ladies music video.

You're right, the only thing I want to make clear is that Beyonce is just as famous and big as Britney ever was, just in a different way. Beyonce is even bigger then Britney these days. (Oh lord, I will get a lot of downvotes for this) :lustney:

I've been saying for awhile now that B10 needs to focus less on sex and be more personal/mature/deep, I think the GP thinks that all she has to offer is sex and they're bored by it now. She needs to show them that there's much more to her than that. I think it's hard for her in a way because I think her music and performances are a way for her to express her sexiness because she isn't like that her in day to day life, but I think she needs to switch gears for a little bit! She can still have some sexy songs but they should be the minority not majority on her next album!

She doesn't need success. She's already a fucking legend. Mariah is not successful and neither is Madge but they are both legends. 

Have you ever thought that Britney actually likes being overly sexual on stage? That she enjoys exposing her alter ego?

Britney has the ability to make the gp fall for her again but she prefers to do her thing now, release the music she likes, performing the songs she likes, wearing what she likes etc... My advice to all of you is not to overanalyse everything happening with Britney because you are losing all the fun

No shade but were you even around during her Primeney days? Beyonce is big, but she is nowhere near as much of a gargantuan star as Britney used to be. She was the biggest star in the whole world and the most powerful woman of 2002. She was absolutely everywhere, the girls wanted to be like her and the boys wanted her. Not a day went by without you hearing about her, seeing her somewhere or hearing her music on the radio. No one on the current scene comes anywhere close to that level, certainly not Beyonce.

Yes i was, i'm a fan since '98. And I understand what you're saying, you're absolutely right about that. But I really think Beyonce is just as big but just in a different way. Just like @Curious_1110 said before, when Beyoncé and Jay Z met William and Kate the media treated it as if they were US Royalty. I'd say that's pretty phenomenal for a R&B singer and a rapper. The world treads like Beyonce is a God, Britney was just America's princess and was everywhere. (the words of @austsilva) every kid loved Britney. But its just another level, its just hard to compare. :divaney:

Please do not put that SLUTBUCKET Kim Kardashian in the same sentence with folks who are actually famous for something.

 

Nobody likes Kim Kardashian like that anyways

You don't get my point sweetie. Its not about being famous for something, I'ts just about the fame in general. :nobitch:

I get what you were saying

 

I just don't think She should be mentioned because she seeks the attention and there would not be much sympathy for her other than her followers.

She is something more. Something like MYTH. Marilyn Monroe, Lady Diana , JIm MOrrison, etc...

They were all EXTREMELY famous but they have also something most celebrities doesn´t have. SECRET. Britney has in her life many secrets and that is one of her IT factors :quirkney:

Well, she did say during the promo of Glory that she's really into all the numbers and charts (meaning she finds it important that her music does well on the charts - so Glory only being #3 would have been a slap in the face, if she actually were) I personally feel like right now she can do whatever she wants. She will never be as successful as she once was, because of the GP, so she needs to let go of the fact that she could have been the queen of pop won't have that many huge hits and either make music for fun or retire (and after Glory, that wouldn't even be that bad)

Of course, the first one would be my personal preference :quirkney:

Unless she changes it up. Don't get me wrong I love Glory, I love her new found confidence and I love the fact she's found a passion for music again.

But she is a 34 year old mum of two. She can't always just sing about sex and clubbing, wear skimpy clothes and then talk about how boring she is. Her image has to change if she wants the GP to really pay attention again. I think the main issue is that GP is bored of her. Her image hasn't really changed since 2008 and her music hasn't matured much since 2003.

She isn't 24 anymore and I think Britney/her team need to realise that. Instead of riding on the coattails of her old success why not be inventive and show the maturer side of Britney? It's obvious with the Make Me drama and the cut scenes from WB she isn't comfortable being overly sexual anymore and is aware that her kids could see what she's doing.

That's if she wants success (good point @Alien.)

I agree 100%!

 She has to change things up if she wants to be around for another 10/15 yrs and still be successful!

Her team like I said before have no clue that majority of her base is 20 and 30 yr olds .... so I don't get why they still try and market her like it's 2001 and why Larry is forcing her to record songs like Clumsy LOL

That is so stupid of course she wants to be successful!

Now does she want a bunch of media attention and paparazzi following her every move?

Of course not but to say she doesn't want to be successful is the dumbest thing I have ever heard in my life!

Bitch can you?

You can still have great success without a bunch of media attention and paps everywhere!

Adele is huge and yet we don't hear nothing about her Private life and all that other stuff... Beyoncé is another one so it can be done!

That stupid saying is just something you Britards or W/E made up to justify her flopping!
