Whoa, this Sucks!
First off, let me say Britney is no Madonna, i saw the Blonde Ambition tour and the girlie show in fact, all of Madonna's shows and Britney looks to be taking a few cues from Madonna herself. The masturbation scene on the beds was a direct copy of Like A Virgin, the bathrobes? taken from Material Girl. as for her singing, Ms Britney didn't. it appeared she sang one song but that was just wishful thinking, the lip syncing was bad,i understand lip synching but at least try to sing along. the show itself was eye candy, well produced, the sets were very nice and the costumes and dances were top notch, however, when one has a mediocre talent, one needs pomp and circumstance. Yes, Madonna has been known to lip sych ch but 90% of her shows she sings live and guess what? Madonna cant sing either but she still makes the attempt. overall its a good show for the visuals, oh, and that fat drag queen? bad decision. he ruined the show (i assume she was trying for a the clown Madonna used in the girlie show, which also was a bad decision) in my opinion one should see the blonde ambition or the girlie show and then watch Britney and you'll see what I'm talking about. now, comparisons aside, Britney had a strong array of songs at her desposal and the way she (her manager, tour director) brings the songs to life in a nice way. she is trying to give you a great show and manages to get the, as i've said before, the visuals and dances down (nothing inventive here though, standard routines etc). The tour itself was a huge project for her and it didn't sell out a lof of shows, in fact, by the time she was in her second week of touring, a lot of her shows weren't even close to filling to capacity and as a result, slashed some performances and tighted the show up, when this proved fruitless, she injured her knee and canceled the tour (odd how she was up and running less than 3 weeks later, some knee injury) If Britney is smart, (which she hasn't proved to be yet) she will retire for a bit and hopefully the audiences hearts will grow fonder.
