Britney Spears’ latest single “Hold it Against Me” dropped on Tuesday and by Wednesday had gone straight to the top of the iTunes charts. But don’t expect a live performance by Britney at the Grammy Awards in February. Even though her life has rebounded significantly since her disastrous live appearance on the 2007 MTV VMAs, it is unlikely that live TV performances are in her near future.
Spears has been dissected by the pop culture media for every thing from her celebrity fashion style to her money management problems, but the one thing nobody can deny is the major danceabilty of her new hit. Says Entertainment Weekly’s music critic Leah Greenblatt, the song is super catchy: “Two weeks later, you’re, like, dreaming that song and singing it in the shower,” she says.
