Reclusive Britney Spears was spotted entering a Los Angeles recording studio yesterday (July 14th). While there has been much talk surrounding the singer’s 7th studio album, this marks the first time the mother of two has been confirmed to be recording new music for the project.
One can only hope the spark which once characterised the Britney of yesteryear returns this go round. For, as demonstrated with her last two albums (‘Blackout’ and ‘Circus’), the problem is by no means her material, rather her lacklustre performances. Spears was unceremoniously slammed for her 2007 MTV VMA ‘Gimme More’ performance, yet continued to churn out wickety-wack live showings on TV and tours – only this time to mass-praise (no doubt due to her commercial ‘comeback’). Music industry hypocrisy at its best.
In any case, we’re all rooting for Ms. Spears. Here’s hoping she silences the critics.
