Britney Spears swirls up another flash in the pan

Stop salivating, buzz followers. Britney Spears cannot be making a comeback, because she never went away. The only thing that differentiates her current, mostly panned House of Blues "mini-tour" from her last three years of public activity is that it's taking place on a stage instead of in a limo leaving a restaurant or in a postnatal hospital bed.

Spears is a major player in the rise of free-floating fame, a phenomenon that's existed since the dawn of mass media and just keeps growing as the information highway sprawls. She was born as a performer in a variety show: "The New Mickey Mouse Club," which trained kids not just to sing, but to dance, joke around and fake spontaneity.

Like her sometimes friend Paris Hilton, Spears is most gifted at just being there: her beauty is magnetic, and she knows how to move, stand and gaze at the camera so that everything around her fades into the distance. Her voice has never mattered much. She exists for the Image Age.

The garden-variety mistakes Spears has made choosing the wrong guy, getting knocked up too young, crashing the way that countless pretty, hapless women have, by making scenes and losing her looks have added to her allure by making people think they understand her.

This is where her story intersects with Anna Nicole Smith's; a talent for anything specific becomes extraneous once someone has become this kind of emblematic tragedy. Few care whether Spears actually makes music. The fact that she chewed gum instead of bothering to lip-sync at the House of Blues and spent only 15 minutes onstage (15 minutes the fame timetable Andy Warhol allotted us all!) better suits her unfolding narrative than a competent performance could.

Spears does plan to release new music sometime soon. She's working with reliable producers Jonathan "J.R." Rotem and Sean Garrett, who've helped such artists as Rihanna and the Pussycat Dolls succeed with a Britney-esque mix of kitten purrs and bared claws. Malleable female voices that complement the synthetic feel of highly programmed pop have become a fixture on the charts since Spears perfected the role with hits such as "Toxic." If Nelly Furtado, Fergie and Gwen Stefani singers who rely on personality, not chops can stay on top, there's no reason Britney shouldn't end up back there too.

All Spears needs is to let herself do what comes naturally: be a product, an image, an archetype. If she tries to be confessional or assert herself as an artist, she's risking judgment on conventional artistic terms, and she'll lose. She won't be saved by her own good taste, as Stefani has been, or by brilliant, loyal collaborators, like Fergie and Furtado, who can count on will.i.am and Timbaland. Spears doesn't even seem willing to work on what little vocal talent she has she's reportedly been taking dancing, not singing, lessons.

So dance, Britney. Create the most spectacular multimedia show money can buy. Tell your story on a mythic level, with dozens of dancers, massive flashing screens, and bodies flying through the air. Back up this extravaganza with the highest-quality sounds those producers can fabricate, with your voice not exactly at the center, but an alluring element wafting over hot beats and ingenius samples.

Laugh in the face of those who say you still can't sing (as if that were ever the point!). Be our dark dream, our toppling-over angel, and you'll get another 15 minutes at least.

This is hard for me because I really like them both. I don't really consider neither of them to be the princess of pop... because they both the queens. I honestly think britney could be just as good of a singer as beyonce if she took some more lessons, because when she first came out, her vocals were just as good as beyonce's or at least close to being just as good. They both can put on a great show, but britney just has this thing that can light up a stage... even if the performance is lame. Beyonce kinda has that thing, but it's just not the same. Beyonce's music videos lately hasn't been that good except for her video feat. shakira & her irreplaceable video. All of brtieny's videos have been good except for her "do somethin" video. They both really hot & britney's hottness is comin back.

Beyonce wins

but I still like britney a lot & if I could I would give them a tie, but I give too many ties all the time.

beyonce all thew way. both are very talented but beyonce just has more to me. and beyonce body is better. briney willcome back and take over but beyonce holds it down now and this is her main competition. beyonce outsung mariah on their collab together and she would kill britney too. beyonce is having more success and she is the most awarded entertainer uner 30 ever according to book of world records. here are the records the both set.

britney: fastest selling female album
(alanis has the best debute album by female just become a guinness book of world record fan club member)

beyonce: one of the most paid actresses ever, the most awarded entertainer under 30, the best selling debute record sales 35 million records soldahead of whitney houston who has 31 million records sold, longest stay at number 1 on hot 100 in a year for females (17weeks), the most successful song in south america by a female which is crazy in love, the biggest jump on billbaord history (beautiful liar with shakira), the best deute song for a female on the united world charts (beautiful liar).......she has set many records and will do more lets not forget she has 10 grammy's, 4 number ones, and hernet woth is 315 million compared to britney's 160 million.

I don't like either of them. However, beyonce is better in every way than britney.

In fact I think that every singer is better than britney - it's not hard is it?
