This is what we are up against, Britney?

I try to stay up on the artists making mainstream waves and succeeding. Once in a while I come across something that amazes me (in a bad way) and reminds me of what most people want in an artist.

Britney Spears represents that – sex and dance music. Her new video on iTunes, Circus, is rated at 4 1/2 stars after nearly 500 reviews. On YouTube, after more than 14 million views and nearly 37,000 ratings, she stands at 5 stars. It’s a little hard to believe because the song is crap. Here’s her video if you want to sit through it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zeR3NSYcHk.

I hold comfort in the fact that a year from now this song and video will be forgotten, meanwhile independent artists who release albums and videos with something to say will continue to be appreciated and listened to by their fans.
