“Britney Spears’ new album, ‘Femme Fatale,’ is nothing to write home about.”

Britney Spears returns with her seventh album called "Femme Fatale." Is it worth the money though? That's debatable. If you like your pop music manufactured and perfectly dubbed so that it sounds like it was put together by a group of talented producers, ala Milli Vanilli, then you'll find Spears' new effort enjoyable.


Am I implying that Spears is anything like Milli Vanilli? No, but I am saying that she probably can sing just as well. The only difference is she actually tries to sing, whereas Milli Vanilli blatantly lip synced its way to a Grammy.


I've never really been impressed by Spears' voice; rather she was sexy, she moved well and she possessed all the qualities that make her what she is today – a manufactured pop star. The truth is anyone can be successful in pop, just look at the Rebecca Black "Friday" debacle.


Spears, however, does one thing very well – she entertains. "Femme Fatale" does its job; it produces 12 carefully crafted pop songs so that Spears can later strut her stuff on stage in front of millions of fans. This is where the "singer" shines.




Her voice again comes across as annoying but you can't resist her charm when she is on her A-game. I can't forget the time she starred in the Pepsi commercial where it showcased her goofiness intertwined with live footage. America really fell in love with her. Then the Kevin Federline fiasco occurred and people began to feel sorry for her.


Luckily for Spears, "Femme Fatale" is filled with dance songs and electro-pop tunes that allow her to put on an extravagant live show. What's great about this album though is it will more than likely sell a lot of copies and when legitimate pop stars like Lady Gaga, P!nk and Beyonce release new material, it could top over them in sales.


The difference is Spears' album will quickly be forgotten, unlike the aforementioned three names above. "Femme Fatale" will not compare to the live tour that Spears will follow up with. Even though the album is musically a C-rating and will find itself buried with her other CD's, Spears will earn her respect on tour. And isn't that what we really want from Spears?
