    i know she has haters and lovers … and im a lover lol
    i just wanna defend her

    BEING AN ARTIST/SINGER IS NOT ONLY ABOUT SINGING! its also about sharing your talent, ideas to the fans and other artist! maybe she is not the best from all the rest but she is the greatest in her own ways! she can sing but not as great as whitney but at least she is not afraid of showing her talent. Maybe she is not good in live performance BUT GUYS! SHE IS JUST STARTING!!

    NO ONE STARTS FROM THE TOP!! she is still learning!

    … maybe she had many boyfriends but whats important is that she DONT GET PREGNANT!!

    …. its hard to write songs about your life!

    …. she’s been an artist since she was 11 but she was exposed at the age of 18, she deserve all the credits because she is a hardworker..
    everyday she rehearse/write song/go to the awards/do pictorials and everything dont you see that?? … every penny she earn is because of her!!

    she is the last role model that i know.. she not like miley cyrus who turned bad girl! what the hell right?

    …. but im okay with the haters.. coz i hate britney, … lol JOKE!!

    …. its just my opinion

    @DL: don’t forget her daddy bought the record company to ensure her success…talent doesn’t matter these days, just money..

  • floridagirl

    @zoz: no wonder, she sells digital downloads for single songs for 99cents, kids buy them for their phones which is why she sells so many!

  • floridagirl

    @darla: so true! I will never forget the look on stevie nicks face when she was trying to sing with Taylor!! It was like WTF is that noise coming out of her mouth? Some say she stepped back to sing backup to Taylor and let her have the spot lite ,others say she stepped back hoping no one would see her!

  • floridagirl

    @pickles: and you know its always ” a close source” that leake the news or where she is and who she is doing! Jake flat out asked her if she was the one that told the magazine that he broke up with her on the phone and she said “NO’ that it wasn’t her…probably wasnt’ HER but she had her pr do it…

  • floridagirl

    @Mashly: this album is selling cause of all the hype before hand that she was “naming names” off all the people that did her wrong…I wonder if any of them ever responded like Mayer to Dear John or Taylor L to back to december? hey this year she can make a new song…Back to December AGAIN cause Jake broke up with her in December too! LOL And then the stories about jewelry,private planes, etc still came out even though we found out later that he had already broke up with her!

  • floridagirl

    @pickles: she is slowly starting to fade away..she loses more awards than she wins, <Miranda or Carrie is beating her at most awards. she is winning this because of album sales and digital sales not because of talent. And this is due to all the hype before this album about her “naming names” to all that has done her wrong and people had to buy the album to see who they were because she had the letters to their names highlighted or something stupid and you had to put them together to figure it out. As far as her writing, she is basically singing her diary. So far her next album can only be about Jake cause she named the other ones in this album. Notice that she didn’t win the country award or the pop award just the most sales and digital downloads. the downloads she sells for 99cents for single songs so little kids can download them to their phone. She hasn’t done all this alone..she has daddy’s money backing the record company, the pr and everything….she needs to get dumped again a few times this year to get a new albumLOL
