She’s been bubble-gum cute, a Lolita vixen, a mom, a mess. And now, Britney Spears is back again, as the Comeback Kid. When the pop star’s Circus tour pulls into the St. Pete Times Forum in Tampa on Sunday, it’ll be a splashy tent revival with magic and acrobats. At times, the singer will be perched atop a giant umbrella, suspended from the ceiling and sawed in half as part of a magician’s routine.

Like a good magic trick, her comeback defies expectations, too. Circus yielded the pulsating hit “Womanizer,” that put Spears, 27, at the top of the pop singles chart for the first time since “Baby, One More Time” in 1998. The song’s one-week ascension from No. 96 to No. 1 set a Billboard record, recently broken by Kelly Clarkson.

And although she’s in the midst of a breach-of-contract lawsuit involving a former manager, the singer’s outrageous, occasionally panty-less tabloid exploits are in the past tense — for now, at least. In a music industry that is struggling, her tour is one of the bright spots.

“If you are deemed a must-see attraction, people are still ponying the money up,” says Gary Bongiovanni, editor-in-chief of Pollstar magazine. “A good example is the Britney Spears tour. It went on sale in the middle of the meltdown, and business has been very good.”

Britney Spears: Mighty Aphrodite, Troublesome, Tawdry, Erotic New Show!

March 6, 2009

“Britney Spears, the mighty Aphrodite with the troublesome tawdry streak, nonetheless renewed her claim as one of the world’s most adept manipulators of the public interest. Powering through a 90-minute show that integrated her impetuous teen hits with the more perverse material from the albums she released after a very public breakdown that made her a constant in the tabloids, the Louisiana native flashed her famous good ol’ girl smile at the fans, mostly female, who still find her a worthy patron saint of the erotic arts.”

Oprah, Britney, China, ‘If U Seek Amy’ and What Next Rod Blagojevich?

January 26, 2009

China says there is porn everywhere and has shut down over 1,000 web sites to show who’s boss.  Britney Spears supporters say her new album “Circus” is all about fun but critics say she is spelling a nasty word for intercourse in the song about Amy.

And Rod Blagojevich is saying his impeachment is not aboout selling the Senate seat once held by Barack Obama and he is pleading his case on TV and everywhere else….

Blago says he thought about naming Oprah to the Senate….

Here’s what we think: China cares nothing for public morality but it does want to totally control all media so that pro-democracy messages and movements are difficult.

Britney is just trying to make money.

Oprah would be a horrible senator as she doesn’t do her homework.  But then, that is where a lot of people go when they don’t do their homework.

And screw Blago….

From New York Daily News

Britney Spears is back, annoying parent groups with a new song they say is a crude lyrical trick that doesn’t belong on the airwaves.

The song’s title, “If U Seek Amy,” is sung in such a way as to sound like a crass entreaty instead of advice for finding a girl, according to the Parents Television Council.

“There is no misinterpreting the lyrics to this song, and it’s certainly not about a girl named Amy,” council President Tim Winter said of the third single from Spears’ new album, “Circus.”

Officials from Spears’ label, Jive, could not be reached for comment.
