  1. RUMOR - Britney might be leaving RCA

    Jive shut down, so all of their artists kind of didn't get much of a say. I wish she would've just not renewed her contract (to transition into RCA at least) and let it lapse and then search for a reputable label that could provide all of the resources she needed
  2. RUMOR - Britney might be leaving RCA

    YESSSSSS PLEASE. And please Britney leave some of your team behind with it! RCA hasn't been good for her career and it seems like the last couple of albums and eras have been plagued with problems... Take control Brit! Give us your best queen!
  3. Love that photo of her, is that new? But not EA using recycled Private Show footage for the TV ad
  4. So for #B10....

    I could easily say the same. Neither of us really know, however, it's kind of obvious Britney didn't have alot of input in Femme Fatale. I'm very familiar with mental illness, and it only gets worse if you aren't taking care of yourself. Britney has been in an almost 10 year remission. She's more than capable of taking care of herself. We have all seen the results with Britney when she has more control and isn't given a definite direction to take — her three best albums, In the Zone, Blackout and Glory. Glory has given us some of her best performances since the Circus era. Britney can and does make decisions. She's just very reserved and will listen to what others want and think she should do. If she had more freedom to make decisions, we'd probably have most of the original Make Me video. As I mentioned, show business is extremely grueling. A couple weeks is not long enough to have a promotion schedule for an album, then immediately go back to performing a show when the weeks are up. My belief is if Vegas ended in early 2016 or 2015, she would've devoted her time to a tour. She loves Glory, and that passion was enough in my belief for her to want to get out there and rally for it. There's a dramatic difference between 2016- Britney and let's say 2011-2015 Britney. She got more control over her album and wasn't told who to work with or anything like that. The result is clear. She was happier, more comfortable, and more excited about her work. Just like any person whose happy with their work would be. Anyone would have more passion in their work if they solely worked on it and they really believe in it. My point is, Britney is very stable in her life, and all signs point to that. 10 years is more than long enough to prove you can take care of yourself - and she has done that in strides. She's not this frail, anxious, woman that breaks with even the slightest bit of push back. She has the thickest skin in the business. She was the highest paid female musician in 2012, and still makes a more than great income with Vegas. We now see Britney doing good things with her money, with her building the childhood cancer facility. No one in Britney's position would hang it all up at 35. Just,... No. And I'm not this crazy fan demanding she work more, either. I can't demand anything from her. Would I like to see more promo? Of course! But that's up to her and her team. I'm just using common sense and basing my observations off of what we've seen in her the last few eras.
  5. My Britney Collection! [Updated]

    Love your collection! Out of curiosity what is the bside on your Gimme More single? I've been making a collection of instrumentals from CD singles and stems, and the Gimme More copy I have is a bad master
  6. So for #B10....

    I know exactly what you're talking about. My point is, Britney only doesn't want to go all in when she's being told everything to do. The passion is STILL there. She called Glory her baby. She just needs to be allowed more control over her career. She wouldn't still be in the game 20 years later if she couldn't handle it. She could very well just take a break if she wanted to "take it easy", but I don't see her retiring. Not at 35.
  7. So for #B10....

    I find that hard to believe. I don't think ANY person works in show business to "take it easy". Show business is extremely grueling and demanding. And Britney Spears has the toughest skin in the business. The thing with Britney though, it seems she's very okay with being told what to do. That was pretty much the entire Femme Fatale era. Glory was her first opportunity in a while to do what SHE wanted with the album, and the difference was real. Britney only "isn't interested", if she didn't have input and doesn't have the passion for the project. I think the reason we didn't get a lot promo with Glory is because of Vegas. I honestly wish she wrapped that up last year before dropping Glory. She could've done "The Private Show Starring Britney Spears". She should re-release Glory with new songs and remixes and tour, honestly. Glory deserves more attention. I have no doubt she would've worked her heart out with Glory if she didn't have Vegas to do. And also to add on, it's LONG overdue now to end the conservatorship. Britney's kids are growing up now, and she's MORE than capable of managing herself. I think the fans who believe Britney doesn't have it in her anymore would be SHOOK with a no-conservatorship era. If Glory is Britney getting more control of the album, just IMAGINE her getting control of the entire era. Britney is 35 years old, she is FAR from over. Madonna is turning 60 next year and she's still running the game. I refuse to accept that Britney is semi-retired at 35.
  8. So for #B10....

    Oh wow, now there's alot of things I could say that I would like as a Britney fan. Glory was absolutely flawless, and unfortunately it seems like a rare moment when Britney releases such a gem. It's sad that this era was half ruined by more stupid team B bullshit. I'm most furious about the scrapping of the original Make Me video (isn't everyone). That video from the clips I've seen, would've been CLASSIC Britney. It was sexy, the choreography was on point, and so much more. It would've been one of her best videos. Small adjustments and edits could've been made to make Britney more comfortable and happier with the result, but classic team B's solution to a difficult situation is to scrap it all and start over. This also destroyed the original package artwork plan, which was allegedly to be done by David Lachepelle, and instead we got a hurried, Femme Fatale inspired cover by Randee St. Nicholas, using a SCREENSHOT as the front album cover. As for sales, I'm caring less and less about them these days, however, Britney Spears is Britney Spears. When we have Beyoncé (who's career is just as long and rewarding) releasing one of the most hyped albums of last year, it just makes me question alot of things with her team. Why isn't team B considering trying new publicity tactics and attempting to boost sales by keeping the album off of streaming platforms for a good 6 months? It seems Britney has let alot of good new people into her professional circle, which is how Glory was able to be made. Now she needs to throw out the rest of the rats who try to control her career or use the same old tired tricks over and over again. My perfect #B10 would be: an album with a fresh dance-pop sound, recorded by top producers, including long time collaborators like Max Martin and Bloodshy & Avant, and new producers too, who are fresh but not basic, boring, annoying and generic like the current situation of the top 40 (sorry not sorry if you like the top 40 right now lol) I want HITS next era. I want REAL promotion. And not just promotion - PUBLICITY. ALOT OF IT. OF ANY KIND. And Glory era level performances. Her BB awards performance was her best in YEARS imo. Oh, and maybe do a couple ballads you could sing LIVE to shut the haters up. I would love a Britney album recorded with her natural (and powerful, it's still there somewhere) contralto vocals. Could you imagine if she did a singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran type album with no vocal processing? She could do it. And her voice could sound even more amazing with proper training with her lower range. That's where the power in her voice hides. I'm just ranting, nothing I want will probably ever happen, which disappoints me because I just don't think people see the potential she has, even her herself. God, have you heard the clips of her singing "Open Arms" from all those years ago? After her live performance of "Something to Talk About" earlier this year, you can still hear glimpses of that in her voice. Same with everything else, her managers, everything... If she were surrounded by only people who were letting her do her thing and have fun, then we wouldn't have any "original video scrapped" dillemas. Ugh. /Rant. Here's to hoping #B10 is indeed something to talk about.
  9. Taylor Swift’s Reputation album reviews

    Whether you like Taylor or not, you've got to admit she can write a damn good pop record Those reviews are really reaching but it's still a pretty good album. And other girls need to take note of her publicity machine and sales tactics
  10. Win A Trip To See The Final #PieceOfMe Show On New Years Eve!!!

    Couldn't some snobby rich person just donate thousands and win by default?
  11. Way too limited of a release, as far as I've heard these sold out FAST. With vinyl becoming a mainstream format again, RCA should press her albums on vinyl. My God, could you imagine Blackout on vinyl?
  12. The weird track from each Britney album

    BOMT - E-mail My Heart Oops - Dear Diary maybe? (I love dear diary though tbh) Britney - What It's Like to Be Me I guess ITZ - im going to skip this album Blackout - lmao this one too Circus - Mmm Papi edit: Radar actually wins first place on this album Femme Fatale - Drop Dead Beautiful Britney Jean - literally every other track lmao Glory - Private Show, though tbh I don't mind that either. Lmao asking to single out a "wtf?!" Track on a Britney album is HARD. ITZ and Blackout are too flawless for that. Glory is nearly that flawless — after all, it does complete the holy Trinity
  13. Gimme More is the song that made me a fan. I still remember the first time I heard it, when a clip of her vma performance was on TV. I just remember thinking that the song was catchy. I didn't even know Blackout existed until after Circus came out. It was like getting two new albums at once. I played the hell out of Blackout. I played it so much I had to buy a new copy because mine wore out. I definitely played it more than Circus. And the impact is undeniable. Fans turned blackout from the "worst album of 2007" into "Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee". A vinyl would be awesome too! I just wish her team would give us this one thing. I would literally never ask for anything else ever again.
  14. We Britney fans are big dreamers for sure, but honestly, out of all the bullshit and false promises from team B over the years, I think we deserve a Blackout re-release most of all. This was such a monumental album and time in Britney's career. I think the older it gets the more incredible it seems. This album is becoming something of a legend - Britney as we all know was at her worst, and her public image was suffering so badly from the press. When the album dropped, critics tore it to shreds. The fans though? They came out in strides. I remember watching a video clip of a midnight release for a California record store, and all of the fans saying how excited they were for the new album and how much they loved Britney. The album sold 124k on it's first day, and 290k it's first week. Then of course the album was robbed of it's spot on top of the chart because of that infamous rule change. Blackout quickly became a fan favorite and cult classic. We gave it endless praise and adoration. We had "blackout day" to promote it to help it earn a platinum certification (which it finally did thanks to us). Danja had worked with Britney for nearly every era since Circus (although his tracks haven't made the cut since Circus.) Over the years the album's influence became more clear. The electro/dance sounds of the album dominated the charts for the latter years of the 00s and early 10s. It became Britney's first and only (so far) inductee into the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame catalogue. This album is just such a defining moment for Britney fans. I think this album wouldn't have been so influential if it weren't for the fans overwhelming support. It's more than safe to say that we adore Blackout. Even if we only get 1 or 2 unreleased tracks, ANYTHING would be nice from team B. Maybe we should try to trend #10YearsOfBlackout to see if we can get team B's full attention?
