Britney Spears Breaking The Ice
Britney's new anime music video, "Break The Ice"
After making a complete idiot of herself at the MTV music awards, sinking to an all time low, Britney Spears has just released an animated version of herself in her new music video called "Break the Ice." Released Tuesday, March 11, by Jive Records, the video portrays Spears as an anime superhero character, with long blond hair wearing futuristic body hugging outfits. Is it possible that Britney has taken the "Second Life" mentality a bit too far?
Bad Publicity is Better Than No Publicity
The "Second Life" Britney released the video at a "virtual" black tie premiere party. I guess that "make believe" at this point in her life is much more appealing than her "real" life scenario. In the news all over the place with her failed marriage, custody battles, and complete "psycho" behavior, one might have the inclination to feel sorry for all the publicity that she is given, but then again isn't that the name of the "show biz" game?
"Toxic" once again!
Capitalizing on her success of the release of her chart topping "Toxic", her first and only Grammy winner, Britney had the idea to continue the whole superspy/assassin and sexy air stewardess character again, but as an animated superheroine this time. The music itself is indicative of Britney, sounding a little like a "Toxic" remake, with a lot of studio mixing.
Britney's purse strings were tightened.
Also, in the news this week Britney was given a $1,500 weekly allowance from her conservatorship, which allows her father, Jamie Spears, complete control of her assets. This temporary right was given to her father in a court hearing in early February, after the singer was deemed unable to handle her own funds. This was a result of all her "crazy" unexplainable behavior we have all lately been privy to.
A "Provacative Freakshow"
"Break the Ice" is the third single released from Britney's "Blackout" album. This album features songs with explicit lyrics that depicts examples of her current lifestyle and how she feels about it. With that said, I will leave it up to your imagination as to the value of the lyrics.
Still playing the "provocative" girl she still holds on to her "freakness", according to Rolling Stone Magazine. Rolling Stone states, "It's telling that Blackout's two best tracks - the tabloid-bashing banger ‘Piece of Me' and the paparazzi-tease ‘Freakshow' - suggest that she believes playing the part of the cage-dancing bear is the best way to mess with the media. ‘Wanna see crazy?' she sings on ‘Freakshow.' ‘We can show 'em!'"
As for me, I would rather not see it.
How did Britney's fans review the video premiere?
"i loves it brit brit you did it once more. i love every thing you do don't listen to all the haters. your the queen of pop and there not"
"luv Britney Spears and this song, but this vid stinks!...i heard it's just her promotional vid though"
"yes i agree this is the worst vidoe ever. the record company should have done a real video.good song bad video. i still have faith for her."
"love the song. the video has me very disapointed im starting to loose hope for brit :( "
"one word DISSAPOINTMENT! it was the most dumbest stupid video i have ever seen...seriously i lost all hope for her..the best song of the album is not ruined!....too bad people still have hope for her....i lost it ALL when i saw this video...what happend to you brit?"
"That was the stupidest video i have ever seen. The song was good. But i think it would have been better. If it was actually her dancing to her music, instead of animation."
" I think it's not bad, it's an interesting idea to have an animated video, Madonna also had an animated video in the past, i cannot understand why people love to diss Britney but she is the queen of pop and Break The Ice is the best pop track i have ever listened, it will rock the charts. Although she has some personal problems, her career is stil going so strong, and it shows how talented Britney is."
