As Britney Spears continues to break records with her hugely successful ‘Circus’ tour, the 28 year old’s latest video ‘Radar’ premiered today. Serving as the 4th release from her Platinum selling ‘Circus’ LP, the clip – to put it rather bluntly – was a bore-fest. Of course, first springing to mind is the fact that there was no choreography – which considering Britney’s recent showings was perhaps for the best. Above all, the actually video, it’s concept and execution missed the mark IMO.
I don’t feel it fair to judge all artists in the same vein, after all each have their own strengths. Hence Ms. Spears gets an ‘OK’ from me, and I’m sure several others, based on all she’s been through. I’m kinda looking at this period as her rediscovering her mojo. However, should she still not have re-learned how to dance and ‘bring it’ overall on her next project, a full-time mother vacancy might just be one she should take up. Harsh? Perhaps. Yet, watching her churn out mediocrity, knowing what she was once capable of, IMO kinda tarnishes whatever legacy she is to leave (See also: Mariah Carey).
What do you think of the video?
