"Britney Spears & Spooks"


          

Hahahahahaha!!! I'm sorry y'all, but I just flipped to Mtv and they were playing a re-run of today's TRL. This girl was asking B.Spears some questions...

Girl: "What five albums do you think everyone should own?"

Spears (acting as if she is critically tuned-in): "Well, Lenny Kravitz...um hehe, Sade...hehe, OutKast, and...oh...I just got this new CD the Skoops."

No, I didn't mispell Spooks; yes, she fucked it up. (Who else could she be referring to?) Anyway, thought my okayplayers would get a kick out of evereyone's favorite pop-star making a booboo about okayartists.

Peace

Did she actually only mention four albums, despite being asked to recommend five? If she did, I think it would be really funny that she can neither read nor count.

What you said is definitely true, but it kind of makes things sadder in my opinion. It's one thing if she digs bubble-gum pop the way we dig hip-hop. I mean, if that's what she loves, and she makes music that sounds like that as a result, that's cool. If she listens to really good shit, whatever genre it may be, then gets up on stage and performs shit because it's profitable, I don't know, that just sounds lamer to me.

this may seem like a dumb ass question but......are the spooks okayartists? Last time i checked it was the roots, d, com, jill, jazzies, dilated, and reflection. Are the spooks part of that list? I would hope not cause i dont think that there on the same level as the previously mentioned artists.


one.

you defintiely make a point. They were only a featured artist, though, so they would fall into the same category as jill scott, flo brown, toshi kubota, etc. I guess they're part of the camp but not official members, whatever that means.

yeah, it just kind of bothered me to see that post because i know that the spooks arent really down with the roots or other okayartists, yet a lot of spooks fans on this site seem to throw them in that same category of rap, and same category of excellence. To be honest with you, i hate the spooks (their mc's are wack as hell) and it bothers me to see them viewed as "okayartists".


peace.

I apologize for this...but.....You say that the Spook's mc's are wack? C'mon man...they wouldn't let em be an okayartist feature if they wasn't dope. They are on point without a doubt. I'm not sayin your opinion is bad...I jus wanted to stick my two cents in on that one! Much love though.........But...the Spooks is phat man! Aight.........

Actually, I think the Spook s are pwretty good myself, but maybe not on the same level as say the Roots. But each of the Ok Artists seem to bring something different. Also, to say The Spooks arent in the same category of rap as Roots, well what about D' or Jazzie. Theyre not rap at all. Talib n Hitek and Dialated are other rappers. Anyway the point is Spooks I dont think are exactly on the same level lyrically, as their mcs out of 4 thy're are only two who sound the same and sometimes it works but other times not. Musically they are most of the time on pont. The lady, of course, is a standout. Overall I think they're a 3 out of 5 star group.

Oh and Jill Scott aint on the list. Its been like that for awile now, where have u been??

ya, i stand by my feeling on the spooks, but if u like em, thats your opinion, whatever floats your boat. im not sure just because theyre featured artists necessarily means that they are "dope". I think that theres a lot of monetary issues behind becoming a "featured artist". Obviously, its really good exposure and publicity. But also, taking a look at some of the other featured artists, namely Avant, and the artists from the Romeo Must Die Sdtk. (aaliyah, dmx, etc.), i dont think they necessarily bring the same type of element that the real okay artists do, so i dont think that being a featured artists automatically qualifies you as anything. Feel me?

yea my man...I feel you indefinitely...but that's what separates the Spooks....sure they ain't Roots...but..they've got their own sound and style...that's what makes em unique you know. It ain't the same ol master P cash money bullshit...or whatever you wanna call the commercial nonsense. And I feel what you sayin about jus cause they are the featured artist doesn't necessarily mean anything, but, the way I see it is that if they wasn't dope, why would okayplayer want them as their featured artist? I certainly wouldn't want somebody wack that I'm supportin on my website in the same area as the Roots and Kweli and all of em! You know what I'm sayin...they got skills....like we both said...that's my opinion...jus tryin to show somebody my side on the story so everybody understands......it's all love!!!

she may want to make better music but lacks the talent!

in fact, in her mind, she may think she is as tight as the people she listens to, not knowing her shit is weak!

maybe she realizes that acting like a worthless slut can give her a life most people can only imagine, and enough money to last several lifetimes, and she figures she's not hurting anyone, so go for it. I mean, for all the people on these boards (and I'm not trying to pick on anyone, I'm one too) who sit around posting about how we like good music, I wonder how many would take that cheddar and make bubble gum pop if we had the opportunity? Just a thought.

Yo, Actually has anyone ever even considerd the fact dat she actually is being controlled by the recording company and label for which she works for. I mean come on she starts when shes like 16 or 17 with "One more Time" or whatever the hell her first album was, and since its HUGE success, she has pretty much did the same thing over with the "Oops" album.

Seriously though, whether she was tellin' da truth or not she is actually in the positon of either performing for the people and the label or out of job, unless ofcourse she becomes a movie star, but I won't go into that!

Hahah I laughed my ass off when I read this post, unfourtunatly I'm Canadian and don't get MTV, so I missed out .
My opinion on Britney Spears in that she's a body and voice whored out by her record company. No mind or soul!! Probably one of Britney's trendy representatives told her to menion the Spooks if she got asked who her favorite musicians were. Britney could'nt answer this on her own because she doesn't know what music is!!!

P.S. Briney not begin able to count or speak LOL!!!!

A PBS program called "Frontline" has an episode called "The Merchants of Cool" which talks about how artists like Briteny Spears get created, and why. The show is going to be rebroadcast on May 1, 2001. I saw the original broadcast, it was a very good show. They have a website concerning the episode and transcripts if anyone is interested.
