Britney’s latest Criminal video has got me quite concerned… Another seductive video? Why doesn’t Britney Spears dance anymore?!
In high school I took dance and our class did a medley replicating the dance segments of a bunch of her videos. This was circa 2000-2001, so the dances were high energy and really fun. One of the videos we did was the “I’m a slave 4 u” break down segment. We bared our midriffs, but that’s as scandalous as it got.
Yes, Britney, we still do.
(Sorry, roomie. And thanks for being such a good sport through my slight obsession).
But back to my concern. Let’s face it, that’s her only talent: performing.
Since the release of Femme Fatale, she does not dance. Not when she performs at award shows. Not live at her concerts. And not in any of her videos.
I wanna go… how can you not wanna dance to that song?! When that video came out, that’s when I first noticed, something was up.
The last video to have a dance segment in it was Womanizer in 2008, but she’s still not dancing like she used to. She just flails her arms, while her dancer do all the real work. Before that, her last dance video might be her pre-break down “Me Against the Music.” That album was the peak of her dancing career. Before everything went downhill.
How did she go from super cute & awesome dance icon, to white trash, then to total wreck, followed by confused skank, and then end up at: rehabilitated, but kind of awkward nondancing lip syncer?
Barbara Walters, I think it’s time to sit Britney down and have a talk. How do you just throw away such a great talent? What happened?
Did anyone else go through a huge Britney phase?
