Britney Spears Sings a Sad Love Song

I love this dress on her–it’s very Country Posh Spice. With all of the court proceedings going on between Britney Spears and Kevin Federline at the moment, it’s easy to forget that she was completely head over heels for the guy not that long ago. And she’s been using her latest album, Blackout, to express all the feelings that have arisen from her divorce. The title of the track is “Why Should I Be Sad,” and sounds an awful lot like Britney talking about her failed relationship to Federline, hinting at the turmoil Britney was feeling during the time when her marriage really started to disintegrate.

“The song is definitely about Britney and Kevin’s relationship when they were married. Britney entertains the idea that she stayed home taking care of the kids while Kevin was out partying. The track … will be very revealing for her fans.”

Yes, now that may be true, with Britney saying in one of the lyrics: “It just seemed that Vegas/ Only brought the playa out of you.” But let’s not have the pot calling the kettle a party animal, since we’ve got photographic evidence of both of them partying like rock stars during that time. That said, I love the direction Britney’s fashion is taking. It’s like she’s almost nearing her goal of “respectable” but can’t quite fully achieve it. And I’m entranced.
