She liked the Black Eyed Peas and she liked The Dutchess and used to request songs from it back when she was clubbing in 06/07. I have no trouble believing she was fine with working with Will. I can believe that producers pulled their songs because Team Britney was being a pain in the ass. I don't believe they pulled them because she wouldn't promote them, which was what we were told by someone here. Thats what I believe is complete B.S. Also what she said on Jonathan Ross was from almost all accounts that her "albums were basically presented to her finished" and all she had to do was lay down vocals. While I'm sure she was 100% expressing that she got to be more involved with Glory, I also think some of you disregard other info we have to paint as bad a picture as possible. We know from people involved that her own taste was being taken into consideration. Fraser T. Smith said he was asked to work on Femme Fatale specifically because Britney liked another song he had produced (presumably Break Your Heart). There's also all the vaguely religious vibes that much of Britney Jean has and I 100% believe that was because she gravitated towards those songs, whether she ended up taking the recording sessions seriously or not. Like, knowing Britney's taste in music and having witnessed her instagram over the last 4 years or so does anyone really believe Britney doesn't like Perfume? Don't Hold On Tight and Brightest Morning Star seem exactly like the shit Britney would love? I think so. Will.i.am said early on Britney was really into the Diplo stuff he was playing her, and in fact we did end up with a Diplo song on the album. Its just a mystery why that Diplo song wasn't one produced specifically for her and instead was a song Katy Perry didn't want anymore. TL;DR - 2 things can be true at once: her albums could have been presented to her as fleshed out demos just waiting for her vocals, and they also could have taken into consideration the people she liked and they could still be songs she liked.
