Everything seems to encircle and tighten Britney Spears, which eroded her creativeness, gradually made her fire for a career off then perform like a machine with an insensate face.

In 1998, ...Baby One More Time was released then became a global phenomenon, Britney and the song are considered as salvation for teen-pop music which was endangered to be down at that time.

Everything turned to a controversy when Britney released some audacious MVs such as Born To Make You Happy or Don’t Let Me Be The Last To Know with a more and more recklessly sleazy level. Subsequently, she stood in front of a criticism wave from parents because of “poisoning” their children.

Regardless of all criticism, Britney became more and more mature in her album Oops! I Did It Again with lyrics more about sexuality as well as the first sharing about loneliness and loss when being a star, especially from Lucky, the song as an attachment until now. When the hot I’m A Slave 4 U released in 2001, she was officially on the way to become a symbol of sexiness.

Besides, one of the biggest criticism that she met throughout her career was lip-syncing. Indeed, many audiences joked that Britney is the only female singer to have the “right” to lip-sync without a boycott from Hollywood. In contrast to other artists, Britney’s live performance once has shocked all the audience.

It was social media who changed Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera from close friends to a pair of opponents, from Christina’ receiving Best New Artist in Grammy to “homosexual kiss” with Madonna even when it was given to both, …

A dark 2007 to Britney Spears

In The Zone era marked Britney Spears’ climax of her career with the first precious Grammy award for the song Toxic in the nomination Best Dance Recording. It seemed to be hard for other contemporary artists to get over her, but actually that’s man plans god laughs.

After her broken down marriage with Kevin Federline, every terribly bad thing has happened. The long-lasting and money spending divorce led her to compete to take the rights of children caring, leading her extremely serious psychological disorder.

Imagine you were her fan at that period when the newspapers were full of Britney’s worst photos, from the photo showing that she herself shaved her hair with a glassy smile. Britney cried like a psychopath, she quite lost control of the spirit. She embraced her 2 children and cried unconsciously, and attacked other people with an aggressive face.

Her fans were always afraid that Britney will suicide in that context with continuous pressure. That has been one of the most terrifying and dominated spirit collapses. A line of paparazzi waited in front of her house to take photos of her with the price up to hundreds or thousands USD, especially the photo of her shaved head.

The only consolation for Britney Spears in 2007 is her album Blackout with producer Danja. With all resentments and indignation, Britney has made the best music product in her career which is one of the most influenced Pop albums through history. Critics have praised Blackout with winged words. But her disaster performance at MTV VMAs that year continued to roll everything down to the stagnation and crisis.

It was also the time that the court decided to put conservatorship about finance as well as health on Britney Spears which has been her tremendous “cangue and stocks” until now. Through 11 years, she has not been set free to vote, use phones, date or meet anyone. The artists co-operating with Britney were spied like criminals and it was hard for her fans to be close to her.

When her career was endangered, it was her crew to contribute to destroying it!

2008 was the time to bring Britney Spears back with the album Circus successful on both commercial and digital charts. The lead single Womanizer from the album gained the champion in Billboard Hot 100 chart. The Circus Starring Britney Spears has become one of the tours of all female artists collecting the highest income in history.

But, everything happened since 2011. After a relatively successful era of “Femme Fatale”, Britney’s fans temporarily could be reassured and wait for a new album and new era. Then she co-operated with Will.I.Am with the single “Scream and Shout” reaching the 3rd rank in Billboard Hot 100 chart and was the judge for X-Factor with a price of $15 million. It was positive and settled for Britney, but it did not last too long.

In 2013, Britney’s fans one more time hoped when Work Bitch released, opening up for her album Britney Jean. Then she started her live tour resident in Vegas named Britney: Piece of Me which lasted for more than 4 years and finished in the middle of 2018. Within 4 years, Britney was forced not to travel around the world for performance, all were packed in only Vegas.

In 2016, Britney’s crew went on disappoint her fans in another way: They directly discharged the original MV of the lead single Make Me… then replaced by an MV which could not be worse. A lead single is the one to decide 50% of an album’s success, but her crew destroyed all from the beginning.

Domination - leading to retirement

At the end of 2018, the singer decided to celebrate a series of performance in Las Vegas named Domination. Britney appeared with a tired and unnatural face, in contrast to the magnificent background around. Many fans felt so strange but they could not imagine that it was the signal for Britney’s crisis later. Domination was born in a strained force, so Britney did not put her effort in practice as well as advertisement. She did not want to continue to perform.

In early 2019, Britney stated to cancel temporarily all the performance of Domination due to her serious sickness. She disappeared for over 3 months the came back with crisis news from TMZ, followed by the movement #FreeBritney until now. The court of her conservatorship under her father has broken her, leading to a retirement decision.

At the moment, the only thing Britney Spears’ fans care is her peace, happiness, and freedom. She can stop her career, can retire when facing too many difficulties, but the most important thing in her fans’ heart, Britney must live happily!
