Britney Spears

This is not regarding her "new" album, but since the release of "hit me baby..." Britney has released something every year. Be it a new album or a Greatest hits/cd/dvd or Chaotic or a remix album, she's released something. So, I hope in the spirit of that JIVE releases a cd or dvd. I think it would be great if she released the "onyx hotel tour" to dvd with a bonus cd of In the Zone cuts not avail. on cd. or something new. We'll probabaly get nothing but here's to hoping...

She said it will probably be a year or two, but "we'll see." The whole interview was a bit disappointing - especially when we know that she's been working with producers and has finished songs already. The way she spoke made it sound like she had not been in a recording studio for a while!

I daresay, if they wanted to release something, they could put together a collection of unreleased tracks, but I doubt they'll bother.
 
I don't think it would be anything geared toward the general mass of pop buyers, but more to her die hard fans. Like the remix album, no one really knew, there was no promotion. Just as a thank you for trucking along.

I would love a DVD of "The Onyx Hotel," especially as filmed a few shows over here in Europe (only to then use the awful Showtime Miami concert footage on "Chaotic"). I don't really get why they bothered with the remix album, but I suppose the fact they did could suggest they might consider releasing something this year.
 
That interview was so awful, it was a car wreck that I couldn't look away from yet felt so bad for watching.

Throughout, I kept exclaiming "Britney, you need better publicists!!!" Imagine my complete lack of surprise to read today that her publicists and stylists weren't allowed, and that Britney (foolishly) insisted on doing the whole thing by herself. She came across as an ass, and I wouldn't be surprised if her team walked away.

Every time I start to remember the iconic greatness that used to be Britney, I get red hooker lipstick and horrible soundbites.

She'd BETTER release something soon. Music is the only thing that can save her now.
 
Britney has mislead us before with information. She surprised us all with Mona Lisa, and then surprised us again when nothing happened with the whole "Original Doll" album. So hopefully, she'll still be releasing something. The songs that she's done with J.R. Rotem sound great!

I half agree with Federline... - in places, the interview made her seem really immature, childish and dense. Attempting to justify the Sean-on-lap incident with "we're country," is not that smart, and neither is saying she loves Kevin because "he's so simple." However, I think you can't help but feel sorry for her; when she broke down in tears, saying that she has to believe she's here for a purpose, it was just heartbreaking. I think she needs to be mothered, rather than do the mothering.
 
I don't know, I never saw the actual american one, just online. But there's a Japan import i've seen. Has pretty pictures and 5 remixes. Did "and then we kiss" get radio play in the UK? Our dance stations play it on non-stop the past few months.

No, it wasn't. It was released in most European countries to promote the "Britney & Kevin: Chaotic" DVD and bonus CD, on CD with remixes, and in Japan, backed by the other tracks from the bonus CD (I believe their release of "Chaotic" doesn't come with the CD). There was a promo CD-R acetate sent out to certain UK radio stations (such as BBC Radio 2), but it wasn't commercially released here.

"And Then We Kiss" was sent to radio and clubs in Australia, America, Japan and certain parts of Europe, and it apparently charted on the Billboard Dance charts, so it's likely that you'd hear it on dance radio stations in those regions.
 
OK, here's an extract from an article about Britney's new Dateline interview. Taken from: http://www.tmz.com/2006/06/16/lets-get-this-party-started-top-stories-for-friday-06-16-06/

...
Spears also gave Madonna a definitive brush-off, as she responded to Lauer's question about whether they had "a relationship" with an unambiguous no. "I respect her work and I think she's a very smart lady," said Spears. "But I don't live that [referring to Kabbalah, the religious theodicy to which she was introduced by Madonna] like those people do." Spears also got in a dig at Madonna's well-known penchant for re-invention when Lauer asked her about the change in the public's perception of her, suggesting that she couldn't - or wouldn't - put herself through personal "transformation."

Any comments?
 
If you watch the whole thing, the Madonna mentions were a very small part of it. I didn't see it as a brush-off, more that she didn't want to drone on about another artist or Kabbalah. How many times do you imagine she's been asked about Madonna and 'that kiss' etc? She's probably as bored to death of it as we are.

Well, the 'brush off' thing is the direct quote from the article. However, I think it was a bit surprising to know that they didn't have 'a relationship' when it was Britney who was bragging about it all the time...
Oh, and she does mention Goldie Hawn and P!nk as 'people who inspire her'...
