So Britney Spears is in Ottawa tonight (Friday).
The show is sold out I believe.
For all the detractors of Britney, and there are a lot of them, I think they have to admit one thing:
She’s definitely the queen of pop.
I remember working at a daily newspaper about 10 years ago when she debuted, and the articles at the time referred to Britney as a bubblegum singer (someone who’s popular right now, but will lose flavour fast and be done with pretty quickly).
But she kept putting out hit records. She kept selling out tour dates. People loved to read about her and see pictures of her.
People thought she went crazy and she cut off her hair and what not. But she came back, and continued to perform and sell records at a pace most other singers can only dream of.
So 10 years after her debut, she’s still selling albums and selling out concerts.
I think it’s time people give her the respect she is due.
