Britney Spears – I Wanna Go

I want to say this up front: I am not, nor have I ever been a Britney Spears fan.

Now with that disclaimer out of the way, I did download her new album ‘Femme Fatale’ because I heard such good things about it. And you know what? I really like it. Mainly because someone finally figured out what exactly to do with this train wreck we know as Britney Spears. The first and most important lesson learned? No likes Britney because of her amazing singing voice. Her vocals on the entire album are heavily auto-tuned, which you can get a pretty good feeling for in “I Wanna Go”. Instead the weight of the album is more about the producers than it is her. This album is filled with straight up club bangers.

Lesson number two? People like Britney as a hot mess, but they don’t necessarily want to see her as a sad hot mess. Thus this video “I Wanna Go” is batshit crazy insane, but in a good, fun way, and the lyrics have a wink-wink quality to them where Britney is basically saying to everyone, “Hey, if your life was a zoo like mine, wouldn’t you go off the deep end every once and a while too?” It’s bizarre and weird and freaky, but intentionally so, and I like that.
