I am soooo not a fan. Sorry I just felt like I needed to clarify that. But honestly, I like some of her songs. Probably because she didn’t make it herself!! (ooops..)
Now she has a new album, “bracingly unapologetic”. Even her critics are saying that it’s good although I have yet to hear one of her new singles. Oh and the title fits her just right, don’t you think?
Britney Spears’ first hit was ‘Hit Me Baby One More Time’. (or so I think?) During that time, she was 16. I was the same age back then. Ok do the math. (kidding!)
I used to be very jealous of her. We’re of the same age, and yet the whole world knows her. It’s not a good trait to be jealous with someone else’s fortune but hey! I was 16. Right about the time when a girl is starting to question the inequalities in this world.
Let me list down the things that she has back then:
3. fortune (millions)
5. a lot of admirers (I’m talking about guys here)
She has all of these things. So it’s normal for me to wonder. Does she know the theory of relativity? Can she do algebra? Does she has any idea how humans evolved into what we are now. (homo sapiens sapiens) Does she know anything else besides being an OK singer, good dancer and looking pretty and sexy?
Does she even go to school and study like the majority of us 16-year-olds?! No! I don’t think so!
But that’s ok. I’m just being melodramatic. ha!ha!
Back to Britney’s story. A few years after her first hit song, she started doing crazy things which led to the demise of her career. Now this is something that I could rant about.
Not all of us are given opportunities that she has. Not even close! Yet she doesn’t seem to care.
I’m not angry, or even jealous. It just makes me think…. It’s sad how some people take things for granted. And how I wish blessings always end up in the hands of good, sensible people! Really… it’s preposterous!
