So when I woke up this morning I had no idea it was Britney Sunday until I checked Facebook and saw my news feed flooded with the wonderful news! Yup, our queen has released a single! And as I type this my boyfriend is moving and grooving to this catchy tune.
The thing with Britney is ya either love her or hate her. Or you hate her for a while and then once she releases a smash you jump back on the band wagon. The thing with Britney though, is at the end of the day, she really is Britney, Bitch. Yes we get it. Beyonce is Queen B, and is an uber diva, but at the end of the day that’s what she is, a diva! And from one self-proclaimed diva to another, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
However, one of the things I love about Britney is that at the end of the day she’s just a normal girl like the rest of us. How many times have we seen her daddy making her cheese grits? How many times have we seen her sipping on Starbucks? How many times have we seen the girl wear Uggs? Some people might look down upon her for such things. I mean gasp! The thought of wearing Uggs! As a person who works in retail and see’s those things fly off the shelves and the proud owner of at least 3 pairs, half the female population in Southern California if not the globe is guilty of such a crime. In my opinion it’s not really a crime until you start breaking in to the realm of the Swap Meet knock off ones’ that you should really be ashamed. Seriously it’s called outlet shopping people! The suede lasts soooo much longer and really it’s only a $50 difference, if that.
In any event, Britney is a fashion icon in her own right. She’s an everyday girls fashion icon because yes even she has been known for wearing Abercrombie and Pink. She is proof that you don’t have to spend a million dollars to look like a million dollars. She’s just lucky enough to get paid to play dress up too! And who can argue that when girlfriend cleans up she cleans up beautifully!
I find it incredibly humorous that just a few years ago the whole world seemed to be ragging on Britney’s case about how she presented herself. However, now that they have another Southern darling to criticize, all of a sudden Britney has become the one to play the sexy/ beautiful role naturally?
At the end of the day, Britney is always going to be Britney and her true fans are going to love her whether she goes toxic, and does it all again. At the end of the day it’s her prerogative and bottom line she was born to make us happy and we’re always going to ask her to give us more. Every time.
