Well, hello Britney Spears!
Years of phoned in performances have seen many sleep on her in recent times, but oh will she wake up the masses with her sizzling shoot for V Magazine.
The Pop megastar, who for all her inadequacies is still undeniably iconic, cuts a stunning figure on the double cover for the magazine’s 100th issue.
More on the feature below…
Of the decision to spotlight Spears, V editor Stephen Gan said:
“When looking for cover-worthy subjects for our 100th issue, we had to ask ourselves: Who do pop stars and musicians — who have become an integral part of what V represents — look up to and admire? There was only one answer: Britney….
[W]ho in our world did not grow up listening to her music? Plus, she’s spent some time out of the ether, which makes her reappearance all the more fun and surprising. Mario Testino’s pictures say it all: she’s in great shape, and about to hit us with new music any day now.”
There’s no denying, she’s slaying here.
All we need now are for her performances to channel the same ferocity.
Because, regardless of how renown her tone is, the reality is that she is most revered for her ability as a stage blazer. Unfortunate, as recent years have seen her serve up ice cold showings — even in the dizzying desert that is Las Vegas.
We’re rooting for her, we just need for all those around her to do the same and make every effort to ensure she’s able to compete in a way befitting of her icon status. She’s too young to be a nostalgia act.
