It's Time To Recognize That Britney Spears Is The Queen Of Underestimation
They discounted her in 1999.
She sold 10.6 million albums.
They tried to get rid of her in 2000.
She was labeled "the betrayer" in 2002.
Her response was one of the best ballads of the '00s, "Everytime."
She was "out of control" in 2004.
Then "Toxic" happened.
She was supposed to fade into obscurity after she married K-Fed.
That wasn't her prerogative.
Then 2007 happened...and, yeah, it was really fucked up.
But, like always, she came back.
Britney has always been the underdog.
Britney has always come out, in one way or another, ON TOP.
And that's EXACTLY what Britney has done with her latest album, Glory. She has come back for the 439th time.
Everyone agrees Glory is magnificent. Britney is back.
Buuuut you know what? None of this even matters.
Britney can keep on posting pictures of her kids...
...and screenshots of corn she finds on Google.
She has nothing to prove anymore.
So whether or not this album sells a million or 200 copies, who cares?
Britney Spears is making Britney Spears music again.
She's genuinely happy and there's NOTHING more thrilling than seeing that.
