BRITNEY’S NEW ALBUM IS HOT! All the songs are so great on it! Britney knows how to make good music, follow in her foot steps Paris!

lol, I guess that’s where you and I disagree. Actually I once read a review comparing Britney’s and Paris’ album, and I strongly agreed with it. I don’t remember if I read it from this site or another.

I wrote my comments a few weeks ago comparing the two albums, not sure of that’s what you’re refering to or not.

basically, I never listened to Britney before because I don’t like pop and I thought that was her genre. However, i checked out her album and it is good. mainly club music with some hip-hop light flavors, which I like.

However, i don’t think it’s as good as paris’ album, especially lyrically. Also, paris did a lot of the writing for her songs. i don’t think Britney did any of the lyrics on her new album. Also, since paris’ is more lyrical, her vocals are not only better, but they are more clear and share center stage with the music, whereas britney’s is more about the beat which tends to cover her singing.

On another note, looks like Paris is co-hosting (with Nicole’s mom) a baby shower this weekend for Nicole. I’ve seen reports that Lindsey Lohan is supposed to be there. Wow, i guess the shower is for Nicole so she can invite whoever she wants to, but that looks like a slap in Paris’ face since Nicole and Lindsay were never really that close to start with and Lindsey casued so much trouble for Paris. I just don’t completely trust Nicole not to throw Paris under the bus if she needs to. I don’t trust Lindsey either, I think she has a temper and can be a bit psycho. We’ll see.

later friends….

Admin, the review you’re thinking of might also have been the one at All Music Guide, which compared Paris’s album with then recent offerings from the Britney/Aguilera etc set, if I recall correctly.

Personally I have nothing against Britney, but she doesn’t interest me either and I’m not into that kind of music in general, despite considering Paris’s debut to be among my top 20 favourite albums.

Kevin, I hope this doesn’t inspire Paris to complete her album. I like Britney, but her new album sounds just like an extremely long song by Daft Punk. You actually hear the background vocals more than Britney herself, which sounds like a robot. I hate to say that, but I’ve to agree with what Jim Farber wrote: “If a blow-up sex doll could sing, this is what she’d sound like”.
I’m not a Britney hater, I used to love her music. the fact is that I was hoping for something at least as good as her other singles, like “Do Somethin'”, or “Toxic”, not a bunch of b-sides-sounding songs. And I feel that a lot of her fans didn’t like it either, but they’re forcing their selves to like it, just because it’s Britney.
I hope Paris’ new album give us something new to hear from her, but totally different from Britney’s “Blackout”.

I agree. Yes juju, that’s one. I thought it was a really nice review. I know Britney’s new album emphases a lot on beats, not a bad idea, but they seem “overproduced.” I guess that’s what haters say about Paris’ album, but I strongly agree with you and Mat. I never was or is a fan of Britney’s music, but I just liked the song “Toxic” and another one. That’s about it.

Django, yeah, they said something about Paris’ album been a lot more fresher than Jessica’s, etc. Very good point, and it really is.

Well I love a good beat more than anything so that might explain something. But you guys must be CRAZY if you think I like Britneys music more than Paris! I’m obsessed with Paris’ music! I remember when I was going psycho when the demos for Turn You On/I Want You, etc were leaked!

I’m a Paris music freak 150%, her next album I’m probably buying 5 copies (no lie) since I have a job now and I’ll just give one each to my friends LOL

Wait – Are you serious? There is no way you can compare “Paris” to “Blackout” – Blackout is a far superior record. Don’t get me wrong – “Paris” was pretty damn good and really didn’t get the recognition it deserved, but there is no way possible someone could listen to “Blackout” and then listen to “Paris” and then say they prefer “Paris.” Admin, have you listened to “Blackout”? It’s a great album with absolutely no fillers – “Paris” had quite a few fillers on there.

When I try to explain how powerful the “Paris” effect is, no one really understands, except maybe Kevin and a few others. That’s why sometimes I feel like I’m talking to myself.

No, I really am serious. I think juju and Kevin said it all “I remember when I was going psycho when the demos for Turn You On/I Want You, etc were leaked!”

Blackout is not a bad album. The beats are good, but the producers don’t know how to use them in order to make attractive songs. It’s just good music, there’s nothing memorable about the songs.

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the mainstream (American) music, and I don’t listen to it. However, “Paris” is completely different. There’s something sooooooooo attractive about it. The lyrics, pictures, cover and beats are all excellent. If I had to compare “Turn It Up” and “Turn You On” to one of those songs in Blackout…

The only fillers in “Paris” I can think of are “I Want You,” “Do You Think I’m Sexy” and “Not Leaving Without You,” but even these songs, I can’t consider them to be fillers if I had to compare them to the songs I’m forced to listen to from radio every day.

Of course, it’s all about opinion and what attracts you. But I have to tell you, what really motivated me to make this site is the album. Paris knows good music!

^^ Oh gosh “I Want You” is my absolute favorite!

Well I honestly think most of, if not all, the negative reviews that came with “Paris” were directed more towards the singer than the music. That’s why I enjoyed reading good reviews for “Paris”. But for “Blackout”, there’s been maybe 5 bad reviews out of like 30. “Blackout” is a good album BECAUSE of the producers, Britney had very little to do with the album. Paris should work with the producers from “Blackout”, like Danja, Sean Garrett, The Neptunes and Bloodshy & Avant (Bloodshy & Avant produced “Toxic” and Britney’s new single “Piece Of Me” – a very euro pop sounding song.) It would be awesome for Paris to work with Bloodshy and Avant – Anyone but Scott Storch. I despise him – He was just photographed the other day obviously high on drugs with Cocaine in his nose – No, it wasn’t photoshopped it was real. It’s not good for Paris’ image right now to be seen with him, professionaly or non-professionally.

I agree with Bobby on the Scott Storch thing, he’s beats are getting old, he’s getting old. Paris needs someone new and fresh, more tracks with JR Rotem, Kara DiGuardi (my favorite song writer on earth!), and The Neptunes. Paris once stated she wanted to work with the Neptunes. But I don’t want Paris to lose her style, it’s good lyrics, songs to remember. Like Enkil said Britneys songs are just good songs, I’ll listen to them for a while then get bored. I CAN’T get bored of “Paris” something about Stars Are Blind, Nothing In This World, Turn It Up, Turn You On don’t get boring.

I wouldn’t mind Paris working with Danja, etc but like I don’t want her to sound like Britneys robotic voice. I want her new album to sound like her in the Repo trailer, I want to hear that strong voice which is SUPPORTED by a good beat, etc not the song based on a beat. I don’t know if anyone understands what I’m saying, I feel like I’m just ranting on. But no matter what kind of Paris’ puts out I’ll love it no matter what.

The only songs I consider a filler on “Paris” is Not Leaving Without You, and Do Ya Think I’m Sexy. (Enkil, A LOT of people LOVE I Want You!)

i think it just comes down to personal taste in music between the two albums.

and bobby, i completely agree with what you said about the negative reviews for Paris were more directed at her than the actual music. That’s my point with most everything paris does, she never gets credit from certain types of people no matter how good she does at something.

I remember reading somewhere years ago that she was told when she first started modeling at 15/16 years old, that she may have to change her name if she ever wanted to be taken seriously. Certain people are only willing to view her as a spoiled little rich girl. Obviously that’s loopy because the only reason they know about her is because she is working, she’s just working in a visible industry.

A few weeks ago someone on here made the point that they don’t think its the Hilton last name that causes this because there are other, wealthier families in America, which is true. However, a billionaire family, muchless their children, working in Silicon Valley is not known outside of the business community they affiliate with in their daily lives. Whereas, thanks to almost 600 locations world wide, the Hilton name is known to everyone.

My persepctive is the difference is that those wealthy families are not as known to the classes of people who hate on Paris. (think middle or lower socioeconomic class, bible belt, etc) These people just can’t wait to believe the worst about Paris. They readily confuse her with her Simple Life charachter and they are either unable or unwilling to see through internet gossip and altered, stolen videos. Further, they certainly can’t understand that the real culprit in the whole ‘sex tape’ thing is really Ric Salomon. Still in America today is a patriarchial society that is prone to judging young women far more harshly than young men for these types of issues. it’s the whole “jezebel-archetype” that the Newsweek article played up to last year and prodded the old line thinking that young women need to be controlled.

Bottomline, I’m a fan not only because I think she is talented and I also admire her charachter to stand up to all the criticism and keep working hard.

Interesting post. I would agree with some/most of it.

Although, it’s not just the lower socioeconomic groups or certain geographies that dislike Paris, so that explanation doesn’t really cut it. ( In fact, I believe that the original posts responded to the producer’s explanation of her casting, re: why people in HOLLYWOOD and the entertainment industry might be jealous of Paris or treat her differently. That crowd’s treatment of her rules out the bible belt geography issue and, likely, the socioeconomic issue as well. She’s got it rough across socioeconomic lines.) Also, the Hilton’s really weren’t that famous pre-tape. No one knew them from the Marriott’s, the Barrymore’s the Hewlett’s, the Hearst’s, the Getty’s, the Rockefeller’s, or certainly, the Kennedy’s Bush’s etc. People knew the hotels, but probably wouldn’t have known any Hilton, including Paris or Nicky, if they were sitting on the same couch.

I agree that there is a double standard, although it’s not that great of a double standard. Paris’ behavior was somewhat equivalent to the female version of Steve O, who is neither respected nor well-liked himself. People certainly don’t like Brandon Davis, et al for similar reasons. However, questions:

1) I’ve always thought that it was strange that no one really emphasized the point that Salomon essentially preyed on a teenage girl. Wasn’t he like 11-13 years older than her, or something like that and involved in drugs? got her involved in drugs? I don’t think that he could have been in his 30’s, so that would make her like 16 or 17 when they started dating, tops. right? (btw, where were her parents?) I think that if it was a “regular” girl in Iowa that he did this to, then he would be shunned and she would be the victim. Instead, she’s just gotten a bunch of crap from it. That sucks.

I’ve never seen the actual tape. You write about “altered” videos. Do you mean that it’s not actually her or something like that? Or do you mean that there are other videos, besides the infamous one and those other tapes were altered?

2) So many people apparently lie about their “time” with Paris from Tom Sizemore to Cher’s son to more recently the Osbourne’s re: Jack Osbourne. Yet, Paris continues to socialize with them. I just find that odd. Either when she was in jail or shortly afterwards, I remember a bunch of headlines regarding Jack Osbourne. The Osbournes, to promote the wife’s show/book/whatever, gave an interview where they said that Jack had slept with Paris. Ozzy even gave it a “that a boy, Jack” Yet, at some recent hllywd event, she was smiling on the red carpet with ozzy. It just struck me as strange that she’d pose with him and, again, the Osbourne’s conduct kind of rules out the socioeconomic/geography issues regarding why people pick on her/ treat her unfairly.

3) She should definitely do what she wants. Everyone should. However, I don’t think it’s an issue of her doing what she wants, but rather doing what she says. ( At least, stop stating so MANY things so authoritatively and then failing to do them or doing the complete opposite.)

I do agree with the intent of the comment. She’s a strong person who’s done quite well for herself, while having fun doing it and ignoring the haters. That’s probably what makes me root for her the most.
