The “undisputed princess of pop”, Britney Spears has finally dropped her new single “Make Me” over this past July. Brit Brit’s song of the summer drove her die hard fans, also known as the Britney Army, “crazy” to say the least. However, the video for the hit song didn’t come out until nearly a month later, on August 5th, leaving her supportive fans with nothing but anticipation for her next move.
When the “Make Me” video finally debuted, the Britney Army was torn. Some fans enjoyed the music video, while most were fairly disappointed in hopes of a “Toxic” #2 to begin the new Britney era.
Snippets of the original video have been leaked all over the internet since the song was first released, but at the last minute Spears and her team decided to re-shoot the entire video (reasons as to why are still unclear at this point), with drastic changes to the original’s concept. The second version seems to be entirely toned down, while still a little sexy and flirty, showcasing a happy-go-lucky Spears just having fun with her girls. There also was a few ads throw into the mix such as EOS lip balms, but hey, it’s all about promotion these days right?
Anyways, in other words, “Make Me” #2 is sort of a reminiscent of Spears’ “Overprotected (Darkchild Remix)”, minus the fabulous dance break and all the greatness about the early 2000’s.
While the original “Make Me” was much more risque, without giving too much away and I quote involved a cheetah, nudity, sweaty male dancers, Britney having sex with G-Eazy, and well, more nudity. Which is EXACTLY what the Britney Army has been craving, and why many are unfortunately unimpressed.
As for my thoughts on the video “Make Me”, I would first like to make it clear that no matter what Britney does I will support it. I will always buy her music even if it’s shitty and I will stan Miss Spears until the day that I die (if you couldn’t already tell). Also, I think that Britney needs to do whatever makes HER happy. Even if that means creating music and content that few will like or moving back to Louisiana, finding a guy, and having more babies. Lastly and most importantly, she DOES NOT deserve any hate or negativity thrown her way, especially from fans. With that being said, I thought that “Make Me” #2 was upbeat and carefree. Not to mention she looked absolutely gorgeous, she looks younger than me and I’m only 23. However in all honesty, I still would have preferred the original. Maybe there is a part two to “Make Me”, it did end off on a cliffhanger. Hopefully she will give the fans what they want, but ultimately at the end of the day it is up to her.
Britney’s latest album Glory will be out later this month, on August 26th and is now available for pre-order. What I hope to hear on her next album is more of the real Britney, and for her voice to be shown in the best light possible. Overall, Britney is an icon and I can’t wait to see what is ahead for the queen of all queens.
Hi babydolls! I decided to share with you some of my favorites from June, since I haven’t done one of these in a while. Also, some exciting news, today is the one year anniversary of my blog! I can’t believe how fast time flies, and I would just like to say THANK YOU to everyone that has supported me. Let’s make the next year even better!
1.) L’Oreal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Color Care System Smooth Shampoo
2.) “Peach Bellini” Bath & Body Works Body Lotion
3.) Tazo “Zen” Green Tea K-Cups
4. Pretty in Pink on DVD
5. Britney Spears’ Everytime
Hey sweeties, long time and no posts! I have been SUPER busy with school, finishing up my junior year of college and have not had much time to blog. However, I have a lot things that I would like to share. Stay tuned, mwah!
1.) CoverGirl The Super Sizer Mascara in Very Black
2.) MAC Rebel Lipstick
3.) My Hot Pink Slippers from Target
4.) Sweet Spun Sugar Candle also from Target
5.) 90’s Lifetime Movies
Since this is my 10th official blog post, I wanted to share some facts about myself so all of you can get to know me better.
1.) I am an only child, it’s a blessing and a curse lol.
2.) I have a 9 year old (almost 10) black lab mix, named Jake. He is seriously my best friend in the entire world, and if you follow me on any of my social media pages you probably already know what a crazy dog lady I am.
3.) My favorite color has always purple or lavender, but I really have been loving pink lately. Like “Barbie” pink and a soft light pink to be more specific, maybe because of all the cute Valentine’s Day decorations I have been seeing at Tarjay (Side Note: I actually hate Valentine’s Day to be honest).
4.) My middle name is Ann (hence Kelly A.), and all my crazy family members on my mother’s side call me Kelly Ann. They insist that it’s my first full name. They’re very dysfunctional people, infact my entire family is.
5.) Which brings me to my next “fun fact”, I am American, but my nationality is Italian, Sicilian (which is the same thing), German, and Irish.
6.) If you couldn’t already tell, I am obsessed with Britney Spears. My very first CD was her Oops!… I Did It Again album, that my uncle John bought me for Christmas when I was 7 years old. I always had this “soul sister” or “spirit animal” connection to her since I was a little girl. Her personality is very relatable to me. Not that I will ever be a Pop Princess like her, but when she gets on stage she transforms into this powerful divia that slays the dance floor (like an alter ego), but in real life she is supposedly kinda shy and you can totally tell (especially in interviews or old MTV specials) that she is a goofball. Then when she had that rough patch in 2007, anyone who’s ever been through something difficult or suffers from a mental illness could completely empathize with her and now she’s doing so much better (it just shows how strong she really is). Overall, I just adore Britney Spears (this should have been a whole other post haha).
7.) I am addicted to YouTube, I watch it all the time! My favs are Shane Dawson and Trisha Paytas, I like them better than people I know in real life. They are hilarious!
8.) I am 22, but I will be 23 years old on February 8th.
9.) My major in college is currently entertainment management, but before that I originally wanted to be a professional makeup artist (I hate touching people, so it didn’t really work out).
10.) I am a free spirit and I am very much my own person. I love being creative, whether it’s with makeup and fashion, or singing a song and making people laugh. I definitely have that type of a mind set, and I see the world from a different angle than most.
*Bonus 11.) My favorite show is Friends (I have the biggest crush on Chandler Bing, so embarrassing I know), and I love the movies Legally Blonde and Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion (I just had to throw those in there).
I hope this was somewhat interesting, and I tag all of you to do it too! Mwah<3
