Britney states her prerogative!
October 18, 2004
It's almost here! Probably one of the most eagerly awaited albums of the year, Britney Spears Greatest Hits: My Prerogative.
With all the hype around Britney lately it seems as though she has been living in a haze. It seems not so long ago that she and Timberwank broke up and now she is married to the gorgeous Kevin! In amongst all this she frenched Madonna, released two albums and has been churning out one hit music video after another, dominating MTV, and launched the Curious range of cosmetics with Elizabeth Arden!
So this is just a slight inside track on the latest album. Okay, so if you are anything like me you will probably be asking yourself, "Why should I buy the Greatest Hits album, if I have all the others already?"
Well for starters, you collection will be incomplete idiot, and secondly the album also has some great new tracks, like the My Prerogative track that has been blaring thorough the Gmax.co.za offices. Even our web designer sings along now - and he is 54!
And according to Britney, this might be the last album for a while. She has told fans that she is looking to just take a break for a while, as she has been busy since she turned 15! Now that she is married, she is wanting to take some time out and just chill.
She says, "My prerogative right now is to just chill & let all of the other overexposed blondes on the cover of Us Weekly be your entertainment... GOOD LUCK GIRLS!! I'm sorry that my life seemed like it was all over the place the past 2 years, it's probably because IT WAS!
"I understand now what they mean when they talk about child stars. Going & going & going is all I've ever known since I was 15 years old. It's amazing what advisors will push you to do, even if it means taking a naive, young, blonde girl & putting her on the cover of every magazine.
"I know now that my knee gave out on me this past summer so that I would have no choice but to stop. My body was shutting down and needed rest. It's funny how the Man upstairs works.
And about her marriage to Kevin and the gossip that usually flies around, "Being married is GREAT and I can't wait to start my family! There is so much change going on right now... not only with me, but in the world, as well. So, the next time you see my face, hear one of my songs or even if I'm the topic of your next conversation, please remember that times are changing and so am I."
For those of you who do not know the song, it is a cover version of the Bobby Brown My Prerogative, but hey, Britney's put her own distinctive flavour to it and now it sounds ten times better!
I have been hounding the guys at BMG Africa and CD Warehouse and they have told me that it will be out within the first two weeks of November. Some advise, place your order now as they are going to sell out faster than gay boys can run out of The Factory during a police raid!
