Miss bad media karma: The best of Britney Spears


Here’s to one of the most consistent record makers of the last fifteen years. As I wrote in 2011, “Britney Spears is the polymorphic essence of every disco dolly who’s so post-feminist/post-sexual/post-woman that to wonder whether she’s used or being used by the purported objects of lust she’s dancing/fucking is beside the point.” Her recombinant voice suggests she’ll do anything: subject as object, object as object, freak show as display of virginity. If he keeps releasing albums as strong as last year’s Glory, she’ll do fine.

    Probably the most nonconforming ranking of Britney Spears songs. Two questions:
    1.Is (You Drive Me) Crazy referring to the “Stop” remix or just the album version?
    2.How would you compare this list of music with her peers like Beyonce and Justin Timberlake? (As you made ranking of their best songs as well)

      1. It doesn’t matter.
      2. As strong and weird as any by Justin and Beyonce, and weirder than Justin’s.

      Thanks for reading!
