All of my loyal Dishmaster readers know about my Britney Spears obsession. I rooted for her when she was down-and-out, and I’m happy to see that her comeback is in full swing. Her new music video premiered on MTV tonight, and I think it ties Toxic for best Britney video of all time. It was choreographed by Brian Friedman, who used to judge and choreograph for Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance. It’s good to see Britney rocking out some dance moves again. I’m glad I have a new video to imitate — that snake was getting mighty heavy. Watch!
I’m actually starting to feel sorry for Kanye West. When Britney Spears’ new song knocked Kanye out of the number one spot, he tweeted her, saying, “Yo Britney, I’m really happy for you and I’mma let you be #1, but me and Jay-Z single is one of the best songs of all time.” Apparently, Kanye West is not allowed to make fun of himself, because no one has a sense of humor, including Britney Spears. Spears’ manager, Adam Leber, replied to Kanye’s tweet, saying, “Thanks for “letting” us be #1. Much appreciated.” Can we all stop picking on Kanye West please? Enough is enough. The guy made a mistake, and his mistake actually catapulted Taylor Swift into super stardom. Also — give the guy permission to make a joke for goodness sakes.
The Bellamy Brothers accused Britney Spears of ripping off their song, and their claim is laughable. I’ve definitely accused artists of ripping off other artists on my blog, but that’s certainly not what happened here. The only similarity involves one lyric, and I won’t even repeat it because I’m too lazy to look it up. First of all, the best way to get your washed up name in the press is to mention someone more famous than yourself. In fact, perhaps I should sue Britney Spears for ripping off the song that I sing in the shower every day. Oops — I sing Britney Spears music in the shower — so that doesn’t work. As an aside, Britney’s new song is predictably amazing, so listen below. And since I’m feeling generous, I’ve decided to also post the Bellamy Brother’s song, despite the obvious hypocrisy of giving them attention.
