We dvr most shows, time, ads, lazy....etc.
Recently we watched Britney 2.0. Even Glee couldn't do much with the train wreck that was the last part of that over played lounge act. I never was fond of her. It's like the Benjamin Button of Vegas. Instead of running toward a lounge act in her later years at some dusty faded casino, her career seemed spawned in a dusty faded casino...then the casino wised up and redid the play-bill with a talented performer like....Rebecca Black or Ke$ha.
It has nothing to do with her emotional state, drug use, non use, Federlining....it's just her voice. It sounded like 90% studio enhancement 10% her. The performers on Glee actually seem to care and put emotion into otherwise flat songs. They did such a great job the first time around I almost....almost wanted to hear the original. Then I thought...why ruin a rose with stinkweed.
I realize many people (chris crocker in that odd vid i fortunately never saw all of) adore her. I also know people who eat Limburger cheese. I adore cheese, yet I can not swallow Limburger cheese. I've bought it a few times to no avail. It's not a gag reflex, it feels like my throat closes and my mouth wants it out. I don't think Britney Spears is Limburger to my ears, I just don't like her voice.
I guess what it boils down to is.... Let there be Britney songs, but let them be done by Glee. :D
