Femme Fatale Was Tragic

Recommended Posts

Taste is subjective, so I honestly never harp on people for what they like/don't like (much less downvote them for their personal opinions--I think that's incredibly juvenile). But I have to say, I was pretty taken aback at seeing "Heaven on Earth" here, since I genuinely think it's one of her best songs ever. I think even Britney herself said it was her favorite track off of Blackout.

I guess I'm just curious as to what you dislike about the song? You're obviously not obligated to provide me with any kind of explanation, but I guess seeing it listed alongside utterly unredeemable tracks such as "Mmm Papi" and "Chillin' With You" made me emotional. :crying1:

I'm not that person but I think it's boring. 

Her vocals are great and I like the lyrics but it ruins the mood of BO tbh

I really enjoyed the FF era. It wasn't flawless but no era has been since ITZ. I loved the album, she did a decent amount of promo, I went to the tour live and it was really really fun, I really liked all 4 videos... It wasn't tragic imo.

I actually like several songs on BJ, what ruined it for me were the Myah vocals, production, Anthony Preston, Will I Am and how once he got on board he took over in a bad way.

There's always a song or two I don't care for and skip on each album.

1st album I skip The beat goes on

2nd album I skip Dear Diary

3rd album I skip Let me be

4th album I skip Brave new girl

5th album I skip Heaven on earth

6th album I skip Mmm Papi

7th album I skip trouble for me, how i roll

8th album I skip It should be easy, chillin wit chu

9th album I skip Coupure Électrique

For me (talking about the ones that I skip all the time whatever my mood is, 'cause there are others that I skip from time to time):

-1st album, I skip I Will Still Love You, Soda Pop, The Beat Goes On, I'll Never Stop Loving You, Thinkin' About You and E-Mail My Heart.

-2nd album, I skip Dear Diary, You Got It All, When Your Eyes Say It, Girl in the Mirror, Heart.

-3rd album, I skip That's Where You Take Me.

-4th album, I skip nothing! ;)

-5th album, I skip nothing! ;)

-6th album, I skip My Baby, Rock Boy, Mmm Papi.

-7th album, I skip Big Fat Bass.

-8th album, I skip Chillin' With You, Body Ache, It Should Be Easy, Now That I Found You, Passenger.

-9th album, I skip nothing! ;)

I was never really a fan of of the music either. And I don't really think Britney was either :truthtea:

 

Inside out is a solid bop though.

Back on topic, I don't think that the Femme Fatale Tour was "tragic". Britney's performance definitely was, but I really liked the remixes, most of the costumes, and the pre-recorded vocals (and the extremely few live vocals). Some of the performances weren't perfect but were still enjoyable to watch (at least for me) like Hold It Against Me, 3, How I Roll and Slave.

The album is nice but Britney, In the Zone, Blackout and Glory are all better. But it's good for working out I give you that. The only song that I dislike on it is Big Fat Ass, and I skip Drop Dead sometimes too, but the rest is allright. None of the songs are excellent tho.

Circus and on, all albums and eras suck with the exception of a few Circus tracks.  :soyeah:
But eyyy, at least Circus / FF had Britney doing original choreo moves. :soyeah:

Wow, the beat goes on, how i roll and coupure electrique are all very unique songs i am proud she recorded. 

Yeah those just aren't favorites of mine, I play Intimidated, The Answer, and others over those.

Inside Out would've been an amazing single and video compared to the bitches that voted for Criminal which was the only single off that album to tank.

Classic, living meme legend 

But I enjoy watching Circus Tour even if it's not perfect, I can see Blackoutney here

For me it was the lacking choreography that I didn't care for, the setlist was fine I hated the MATM remix.

I'm happy Britney reverted back to the original MATM without Madonna and a little bit of the original choreography.

The FF Tour was absolutely awful, but POM is not good either. Choosing gifs which display a few select seconds of any one moment is hardly representative of the overall quality of the actual performance in question, much less reflective of an entire tour or residency. 

The only real improvement, IMO, is that Britney looks much happier and more energetic during POM than she did during FF. And as a fan, that makes me happy for her personally, but I am nevertheless cognizant of how much is still lacking professionally.

Truthfully, I had high hopes immediately following both the 2.0 revamp and her BBMA medley. Unfortunately, however, as the residency begins to wind down, I have to admit that with the exception of a few good nights throughout these past four years, her performance skills have remained largely unimpressive for the duration of the residency.

My thoughts exactly. POM is a mess most nights.

actually, it does. In comparison. 

in comparison to what? her body? the "choreography" is terrible and she waters it down, the "costumes" are all lingerie basically (so terrible they cause nip slips), no pre recorded vocals at all (at least she was trying in FF), she's also stiff and has no rhythm at all in PoM. she had good days and bad days for both FF and PoM but they are both not that excellent.

in comparision to everything. POM is a messy show, and its because its been on for too long with little investment since the revamp, but the difference is incredible.

Britney is physically in the best shape she's been in since 2003, maybe longer. FF Britney was unfit and kinda out of shape (to be doing a world tour). 
POM's costumes are incredibly cheap now, and have always been questionable, with the exception of a few. Femme Fatale Britney's were more expensive but didn't do anything for her. She looked out of shape in all of them, because they didn't suit here and were illfitting. Britney might be wearing leotards now but atleast they fit. 
Britney's rhythm is off during POM, for whatever reason, and that's kinda in excusable. obviously, but when she brings it, she brings it. Femme Fatale Britney had literally one date where she seemed like she had energy....for 15 seconds in pittsburgh. Every other date was horrible.
Yes, Femme Fatale had prerecorded vocals, and i do wish POM had those, there's no comparision, Femme Fatale Britney was horrible looking back. We'd drag Lady Gaga, beyonce, rihanna or christina if they was on stage like that.

so basically both are bad but PoM is great bc she's in shape? lmao and she only "brought it" during the summer of 2015....and then went back to being blah. :whitneyshade:

FF had far better costumes than POM, where Britney herself is confirmed to chop up her outfits with scissors, and the seamstresses have confirmed they throw together outfits within 3 hours AT BRITNEY'S COMMAND.

I got your point, but even if she was very bad at that time as a performer, the Femme Fatale tour will be in my heart no matter what. First time ever she came to my country. :gobaby:

At least, it was a very solid era, she delivered 4 singles, 3 of them very succesfull and HIAM is one of my favourite, as single and music video aswell.:mattafact:

I had so much fun at the Fft

The album was great but the Femme Fatale tour was tragic, I was watching some full shows of it last night and this evening and she was super stiff, uncomfortable and the costumes were a mess. Great song list for the show and the routines we're basic.

Vegas Piece Of Me snatched both Circus tour and Femme Fatale Tours.

Evidence below:

Femme Fatale Tour:

Britney went from using fake spray on Ab's to now looking her hottest since 2002-2003

britney-spears-2000.jpg?w=1620&h=2000

Britney literally gave the world "Something to talk about" when she sang live 100 percent and sounded GREAT.

Britney is doing things now that she hasn't done since her early days.

Why be so upset at what shes delivering now when it's slaying several previous era's.

Glory slays both the Circus and Femme Fatale albums.

The choreography has gotten better, she's in AMAZING shape, in love with Sam, has her sons, career and continues to work.

 

Femme Fatale tour was absolutely tragic. It just had 2/3 "good" nights (Paris, Stockholm and Miami weren't so bad) but she looked bloated, sad and stiff. The outftis weren't good but the production wasn't trashy (at least before she cut half of the stage for Europe). There were literally only 4 decent performances (Hiam, How I  Roll, Slave and Up And Down), the rest was mediocre (gimme more, 3, ttwe) or plain horrendous (everything else).


Circus tour is nowhere as good as this fanbase makes it look like. We were so frustrated back then by the total lacking of real dancing or singing. She looked like a doll though, very energetic and the production was definitely stunning.

Piece of Me 1.0 was basically an updated FF tour with better choreography, better outifts and a more involved Britney. It has been improving over the years until 2015, luckily.

Piece Of me 2.0 is such a wasted chance. She got a lot of better at dancing and her stage presence is on top, but the horrible make up / outfits and the amounts of scrapped choreography and filler performances ruin it for me.

Nowadays she should combine Circus outfits and production with prerecorded FF vocals. Take piece of me best choreography she's been doing over the years and she would have a decent show.
I'm so tired of seeing her half assing bad routines wearing  bikinis with horrible make up. She's energetic, she has her old stage presence back, her dancing improved a lot, her body is banging... get it together girl jesus fucking christ

POMney is better, FFney looked tired all the time and lifeless while Circusney was the queen of just walking. At least Currentney is full of energy and moves every second, looks happy and provides good entertainment.

The tour was a disaster honestly! The album while decent hasn't aged well because it was too generic and hit centric, I do still listen to a few of the tracks semi regularly though! 

I tend to disagree, the album, even though it might be generic at times, provided for a fare amount of great songs, but TTWE is still one of my very favorite ones, so I might bias. Not to mention the bonus tracks, I mean they are fire!

She's doing kind of better now, but I wish she stopped milking us with releasing 999 perfumes a year and stuff like that. I like and support her as an Artist, not a worthless dumb celebrity ffs :nyheadache:
