  1. This is so very sad. Working in a pharmacy and frequenting the club scene, I'm still shocked how readily available xanax is. Both xanax and klonopin and valium and similiar benzos are ridiculously addictive and very strong. As far as legal use, the biggest problem is they are being prescribed for major depression and manic depression disorders instead of real anti-depressants like paxil, prozac, and effexor that build in your system. Xanax should be taken AS NEEDED for major panic attacks and the like or MAYBE for people who have attacks before flights. But people also use them to come down from drug highs like meth, etc when the want to sleep or mix with alcohol or viagra for sex highs. Doctors really need to monitor use and refills better, even with people who need it.

  2. I expected bigger numbers from a Britney album with three Top 10 singles, but I don't think FF is a flop. I'd say it's the perfect example of somebody in Rihanna's league.

    And I think Blackout is overrated. Her best (and most adventurous) album is easily In The Zone.

    I agree about "In the Zone." It's my favorite Brit album, but I loooooaaaaatthhhe "Brave New Girl." I don't think "Blackout" (my 2nd fave) has the high points "In the Zone" (which also has her most writing credits) has, but it's a consistently above average pop/dance album.

  3. She did. #1, Britney turned 30 this year, and like it or not.... even though she and Beyonce are young, they aren't music industry pop artist young like Rihanna and Katy Perry are. Though "Femme Fatale" is a waaaaaay better album than "Circus" as a whole, Britney had that comeback kid heat going on with "Circus." She was coherent and performing again after a stumbling through a messy era made messier by it being during her arguably best album ("Blackout"). She needed to give her fans and the haters more than she did this era as far as performing. Her promotional performances leading up to the album were sad and depressing. I saw the "Femme Fatale" tour live and LUVED it, but watching it at home, I saw why people were cracking on her. She hit all her moves but looked as dead as a drag queen who knows their words but doesnt feel the song. I couldn't even fight when my roomie cracked, "I thought everything looks better in HD..." Even she wants to become a generic dance artist, that's fine; I and some loyal fans will probably still buy. But if she wants to still tour and keep her legacy as a pop force, she has to do better. If it is her knee from her accident during "In the Zone"/ "Outrageous" era, she needs to let people know so they can feel sorry but still try to step it up from what she has been doing. If she's just not feeling it, leave it alone, guuurl. Learn to sing your whole concert live and reintroduce yourself as a cher....

  4. It's good exposure. And no sensible person would see it as Janet bowing down to Britney. It would be an icon honoring a consistently relevant pop star who she (Janet) paved the way for. Doing things like this (and her American Idol performance) keeps Janet's significance in the minds of the sad people who think Britney, Beyonce, Gaga, and Rihanna are even near as great as Janet...and it reminds those of us who know how bad ass she is. There's worst things in the world than seeing Janet turnout a tribute to her younger copycat and snatch some other hoe's tracks while she there.... shame she won't be there....
