Spotlight: Britney Spears

As I’ve been saying in all of my posts so far in December,  I really wanted to do some really big stuff here on Beausic to end 2012! I still wanted to do the same type of posts I do all year long but do them a little bit  bigger than usual. So, when it came to selecting a Spotlight artist to end the year, I knew that I needed to select a true icon – an artist who has become notorious both as an artist and as an image. There are plenty of these artists to choose from, including some I have already done Spotlight posts on, like Madonna and Cher, but I really wanted to feature someone really current and whose images have really made a mark on the audiences of today. The more I thought about it, the more it became clear who that artist would have to be – there has been no bigger icon for the new millennium than the infamous and incomparable Britney Spears! Britney Spears’ career began as a child star on the 1990s incarnation of the Disney Channel original series “The Mickey Mouse Club,” but really shot to international stardom in 1999 with the release of her now classic debut single, “…Baby One More Time.” From that point on, Britney has become notorious not only for her music but for all of the scandal that has surrounded her right from the very start.

…BABY ONE MORE TIME

Baby 04
Baby 01
It was fall 1998 and I was living in Springdale, Arkansas when I started hearing this really catchy song on the radio a LOT. Initially, I thought it was some older song, perhaps from the 1980s or early 90s that I just hadn’t caught before because it’s sound was kind of old school and very different from the pop music of the moment, like Backstreet Boys, Nsync or even Robyn. Still, I really loved the song and really wanted more. The internet was only barely prominent at that point, so I couldn’t go Google it or anything, (I don’t think Google even existed at the time.) It didn’t take long, though, to find out who was singing the song because it was like a sudden explosion. The song I’m talking about is, of course, the massive debut single from Britney Spears, “…Baby One More Time.” The album of the same name was released in the beginning of 1999 and became the biggest selling album by a teenage artist in history and even went double platinum within a single month of it’s release. The music video for “…Baby One More Time,” which can be seen below, became an instant hit but also sparked the first bit of controversy in Britney’s career by featuring Britney in a skimpy Catholic schoolgirl outfit dancing through the hallways of a high school. A little later throughout the promotion of the “…Baby One More Time” album, Britney was featured on the cover of Rolling  Stone in a bra and short shorts, clutching a Tinky Winky doll, (the purportedly pro-gay Teletubbie,) which caused all kinds of controversy due to the fact that it was combining such child-like elements with such a sexualized image, which you can see was a recurring theme in the early part of Britney’s career. The album also spawned four more international hit singles, “Sometimes,” “(You Drive Me) Crazy,” “Born to Make You Happy” and “From the Bottom of My Broken Heart.”

Since “…Baby One More Time” is such a classic, iconic music video, (it was even voted the third most influential music video in the history of pop music in 2010, although the source of this poll is something called “Jam!” that I’ve never heard of,) it only seemed natural to recreate the look from the video. I also took this as an opportunity to experiment a bit with the eye shadows from the Khroma Beauty Khloe’s Kardazzle Complete Face Palette, which I will be posting a review/tutorial for next week! The thing that was the most troubling with this look, though, was getting the right lip color. I dug through my big bin of lip products for ages trying to find just the right product to match her lips in the video and I think I pretty well got it using an NYC Lip Liner in a deep rose-colored shade and the L’oreal Infallible Le Gloss in Glistening Berry! Judge for yourself below!

OOPS!… I DID IT AGAIN

Oops 23
Oops 27
By the time Britney released her second studio album, “Oops!… I Did It Again,” the “Britney Spears Machine,” as my best friend and I used to refer to it, was working on overdrive. She was endorsing and appearing in ads for companies like Pepsi and Skechers, stores were filled with a wide range of Britney merchandise, including dolls, posters, stickers, lunchboxes, t-shirts and everything else you may think of. She even wrote a few books, along with her mother, and even executive produced a film version of one of these books for television. When “Oops!” was released it debuted at number one and sold 1.3 million copies in it’s first week. It was preceded by another massive hit for Britney, the album’s title track, which featured one of the most iconic music videos of Britney’s career, which can be seen below. This album also saw Britney working with a wider range of songwriters and producers than on her first album, which featured almost exclusively production from a Swedish team, including the pop music mastermind and genius, Max Martin. She worked with them on “Oops!,” as well, but also worked with Mutt Lange and Shania Twain on one of my favorite tracks on the album and the hit single, “Don’t Let Me Be The Last To Know,” as well as the writer behind some of the biggest hits in music history, Diane Warren, on “When Your Eyes Say It.” This album spawned 2 other hit singles with “Lucky” and “Stronger,” and remains one of my favorites of Britney’s career.

Once again, it only seemed natural to me to recreate a look from the video for “Oops!… I Did It Again,” because it is such an iconic video and one of those images that immediately comes to mind when you think of Britney’s earlier career. I have also always really loved the kind of retro, 1960s vibe of her makeup look in the video, reminiscent of “Lost In Space” or “Barbarella.” The look came out considerably harsher on me than it does on Britney, though, so if you caught my “2013 Grammy Nominees” video on Monday, that is the reason why I looked a little crazy in that video! In spite of it being a pretty harsh look, I did really like the way it came out! It wouldn’t necessarily be my go-to look for going out or anything but I did kind of enjoy it!

BRITNEY

Slave 12
Slave 11
In 2001 Britney released her third studio album, “Britney,” which saw a pretty drastic change in her sound and image. This was made evident right away by the album’s lead single, “I’m A Slave 4 U,” which featured a much heavier, grittier and more adult sound, while still being undeniably Britney. The video for “Slave” was also much more adult and sexualized, which can be seen below. Britney also expanded her horizons in terms of collaborators and producers on this album, including work with more contemporary urban and hip-hop producers The Neptunes and Darkchild, as well as working with Brian Kieruff & Josh Schwartz, as well as one of the album’s strongest tracks, “What It’s Like To Be Me,” which was co-written and produced by her boyfriend at the time, Justin Timberlake, although they did actually break up very shortly after the release of this record. This album also featured the songs “I’m Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman,” and “Overprotected,” both of which were featured in her Britney’s feature film debut, the critically panned, (but really fun and enjoyable, in my opinion,) “Crossroads,” which co-starred Taryn Manning, Zoe Saldana and Anson Mount, as well as Dan Aykroyd, Kim Cattrall and Justin Long. The film was a concept that Britney came up with herself, which was then expanded upon by Shonda Rhimes, (you know, the one who would later become the creator of “Grey’s Anatomy.”) It was a moderate success at the box office but was also Britney’s only attempt at a film career.

In selecting looks for this post, I was really focusing on recreating what I felt were her most iconic looks and images and that would definitely include the look from the video for “I’m A Slave 4 U.” Also, after the announcement from Pantone that Emerald Green was the Color of the Year for 2013, (which you will hear more about a little later in this post,) it seemed like a pretty current look to do, as well. Green is one of those colors that I don’t use near as often as I would like but I really enjoyed the way this look came out using the Urban Decay Book of Shadows Vol. 4, which is also a palette I don’t use all that often. So, all in all, this look was a whole lot of working with things I don’t use, which is fun.

IN THE ZONE

Toxic 09
Toxic 03
In 2003, Britney released her fourth studio album, “In The Zone,” which was preceded by “the kiss that rocked the nation,” on the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards when Britney and Christina Aguilera both shared a kiss with Madonna. This was just the start of Britney’s collaboration with Madonna as very shortly after this performance Britney released the album’s lead single, “Me Against The Music,” a duet with Madonna. This album also featured the massive hit single and one of the most iconic songs of Britney’s career, “Toxic,” the music video for which can be seen below. It was actually in February 2004 that I got to see Britney perform “Toxic” live at a taping of “On Air with Ryan Seacrest,” in Los Angeles. My best friend and another good friend of ours went and spent the night on the corner of Hollywood and Highland and were really close to the front row for Britney’s performance, (we would have been right at the front had they not had some crappy “VIP” section,) and it was amazing! “In The Zone” also took on a very sexualized sound and incorporated a lot more dance and electronic elements. Britney sparked controversy around this time when she married a childhood friend in Las Vegas for 55 hours before having the marriage annulled. It was just after this that Britney embarked on her Onyx Hotel Tour, during which she became engaged to her eventual husband and father of her two children, Kevin Federline. This tour and the beginning of Britney’s relationship with Kevin were documented in a UPN reality series entitled “Britney & Kevin: Chaotic.” It was also around this period when Britney released her first fragrance, Curious, which would be the first in a long and successful line of fragrances from Britney. She also released her first Greatest Hits album at this time, “Greatest Hits: My Prerogative.”

Once again, I just had to select a look from one of Britney’s most iconic music videos, “Toxic.” This was difficult to select, though, because this video featured so many different and really dramatic and gorgeous looks. The image that always stood out to me the most from this video is definitely the opening of the video where she is disguised as a kind of futuristic stewardess. I also really wanted to do this look because another color that I don’t use near enough is blue and this look features a really beautiful combination of blue/teal and gray, as well as a really shimmery white highlight. I just really loved the look of this makeup and how it incorporated so much shimmer/metallic finish to add to the whole futuristic vibe of the video.

BLACKOUT

Gimme 03
Gimme 01
In late 2006, shortly after giving birth to her second child, Britney filed for divorce from Kevin, then just a few months later Britney’s aunt, whom she had a very close relationship with throughout her entire life, died of ovarian cancer, all of which are said to have been contributing factors to what came next for Britney. On February 16, 2007, in an extremely publicized series of events, Britney checked into a rehabilitation center in Antigua but did not even stay an entire day. The following night, Britney visited a salon in Tarzana, CA where she took a pair of clippers from the stylist and proceeded to shave her own head. She then checked herself in and out of a series of rehab centers before completing a one-month program at the notorious Promises rehab center in Malibu. She also had a long series of legal issues involving her driving, including an incident in which she was caught driving with her son in her lap in the driver’s seat. These legal issues actually caused Britney to lose physical custody of her children. She also began dating one of the paparazzo who constantly chased her throughout Los Angeles, Adnan Ghalib, and began some sort of business relationship with a man named Sam Lutfi, who purported to have been her manager throughout 2007-2008. Due to the growing number of legal issues Britney was facing and the questions raised about her state of mind throughout this period, she was deemed unfit to make her own financial decisions and placed under a conservatorship with all decisions regarding her finances and career being placed in the hands of her father. It was in the midst of all this highly publicized drama that Britney released her fifth studio album, “Blackout.” The album fared quite well with critics, although that was primarily attributed to the producers of the album, including Danja, Bloodshy & Avant, The Neptunes and Kara Dioguardi. The album was a commercial success and spawned the hit singles “Gimme More,” the video for which can be seen below, and “Piece of Me.”

This period in Britney’s career didn’t really have any really strong, iconic moments… at least not in a positive way. However, in looking back over Britney’s music videos I did really enjoy the very dark, smokey eye she wore in the video for “Gimme More,” and the really strong pink blush in the look. Also, while the music video for “Gimme More,” isn’t exactly one of Britney’s strongest moments, this is the song that opened with the now infamous, and much referenced and recreated lines of Britney’s career, “It’s Britney, Bitch.”

CIRCUS

Womanizer 07
Womanizer 06
In the later part of 2008 it suddenly seemed like, after years of being out of commission, the “Britney Spears  Machine” was at work again. It all started with massive amounts of press promoting the MTV Video Music Awards that year, mainly focused on Britney’s planned appearance at the event, as she was nominated for several awards for the music video for “Piece Of Me,” most, if not all, of which she won. The show’s host, Russell Brand, even declared multiple times throughout the event that “Britney’s Back!” Boy, was he ever right! Following her winning streak at the VMAs, Britney world premiered the music video for a brand new single, “Womanizer,” in an hour-long interview special on ABC’s 20/20, along with the announcement of her sixth studio album, “Circus.”.She also premiered an amazingly open, honest and heartbreaking documentary film entitled, “Britney: For The Record,” documenting the changes in her life from her early years in pop to her public meltdown to this period where she was finally trying to put all of the pieces back together. In particular, Britney spoke in this film a lot about the dichotomy of fame and the feeling of achieving the greatest highs one can in life while also seeing the lowest of the lows and the feeling of having her personal freedom taken away, at first by the paparazzi and then by the conservatorship. It is really a fascinating, inspiring and heartbreaking film that I recommend everybody, Britney fan or not, try to see if you are able. Another big part of this documentary, though, was documenting Britney’s work on the “Circus” album. The “Circus” album was a massive success with it’s lead single, “Womanizer,” the video for which can be seen below, becoming Britney’s first number one single in the US since “…Baby One More Time,” as well as the album debuting at number one, earning Britney a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the youngest female artist in history to have five albums debut at number one, as well as making her the very first artist in Soundscan history to have four albums debut with sales of over 500,000. The album also spawned two more Billboard Top 20 hits with it’s title track and the controversial hit, “If You Seek Amy.” Britney also embarked on one of her most successful tours to date in support of this album, “The Circus Starring Britney Spears.” In spite of still not having custody of her children and remaining under conservatorship, in terms of music, Britney really was back on top!

In selecting a look for the “Circus” era, it seemed fairly obvious to me to recreate one of the looks from Britney’s brilliant music video for “Womanizer,” because I remember watching the premiere of the music video and thinking how amazing she looked again, after a few years of looking like kind of a hot mess all of the media, and really loving the deep, sultry, brown smokey eye she wore in the shower scenes in the video, so that was the look I wanted to recreate. I was also really excited to recreate this look because it gave me the perfect opportunity to use my Urban Decay Vice Palette, which I have sadly not used near as much as I expected I would when it was released. Recreating this look with that palette really served as a great reminder that there are some really amazing shadows in the palette and that I need to turn to it much more frequently!

FEMME FATALE

Go 06
Go 16
In early 2011, Britney released her seventh studio album, widely considered by critics, as well as myself, to be one of her best, “Femme Fatale,” The album was preceded by the number one single, “Hold It Against Me,” which gave a very clear depiction of the direction of the album – wall-to-wall dance, incorporating elements of dubstep, techno and trance. “Femme Fatale,” and this general period in Britney’s career also saw her do something she had never really done very much of before – collaborating with other big name artists. During this period Britney worked with Rihanna on the remix to her number one hit, “S&M,” as well as including Ke$ha and Nicki Minaj on a remix to what is probably my favorite song of her entire career, “Til The World Ends,” as well as featuring Will.i.am and an up-and-coming female rapper, Sabi, on tracks on the album. Aside from the tracks mentioned above, Britney also had another number one hit with another of my very favorite songs of her career, “I Wanna Go,” the video for which can be seen below. This made this Britney’s first album to feature 3 top 10 hits, which also made Britney the artist with the longest span of number one hits on the Mainstream Top 40 charts, with a length of 12 years, 7 months and 4 days. In support of the album, Britney also set out on a massively successful worldwide tour called “The Femme Fatale Tour,” with Nicki Minaj and Jessie & The Toy Boys serving as opening acts, which grossed over $68 million worldwide.

As I mentioned earlier in this post, it was recently announced by Pantone that Emerald Green is the Color of the Year for 2013. It was with that in mind that I knew I had to recreate the look that Britney wore in the video for “I Wanna Go,” because I immediately recalled the really gorgeous smoked out Emerald Green look that she wore and which I loved at the time. I also knew that I wanted to film a tutorial for a look using Emerald Green after this announcement was made, and wanted to use the Emerald Green shade Pastille in the Too Faced Sweet Indulgence palette, which I hadn’t used at all yet, so it made perfect sense to kind of kill three birds with one stone and film a tutorial for this look! Check out the tutorial below. Also, there will be plenty more tutorials ahead featuring Emerald Green eye looks, so definitely keep an eye out!

SCREAM & SHOUT

Scream 08
Scream 04
In early 2012, rumors and rumblings began emerging all over the media about a big shake up in the judge’s panel for the US version of the series “The X Factor,” after the lackluster ratings performance of the series first season. It was in and out of the news that Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul had both been dismissed as judges for the series, but this news was very quickly trumped by rumors of Britney possibly joining the series. Media outlets and fans alike went completely insane over the idea, so when it was confirmed that Britney, (and Demi Lovato,) would be judges on the series second season, all media hell broke loose. Once they began filming the auditions portion of the series, you couldn’t visit any entertainment websites without some news piece about Britney’s behavior and appearance at these auditions. The premiere of the second season of the series, the first appearance of Britney on the series, showed massive improvements from the previous season and has remained fairly consistent throughout the entire season thus far. Just last month, Britney also world premiered a new collaboration with Will.i.am, called “Scream & Shout,” the video for which can be seen below, which is the lead single from his upcoming album, “Willpower.” The song is absolutely ridiculous and absolutely brilliant for it, featuring Britney speaking in a ridiculous British accent, (as she has been seen to do jokingly throughout the years she has been in the public eye,) and includes a sample of the now infamous line, “It’s Britney, Bitch.” It was also confirmed earlier this month that Britney is currently at work on her eighth studio album, hopefully ensuring even more great things to come from Britney in 2013!

As soon as I saw the video for “Scream & Shout” I knew that I wanted to film a tutorial for the look that Britney wears in the video – it is very simple and classic, yet very fun and kind of over-the-top, which I always love and felt was a really strong representation of the song and video itself. I was also really excited about this look because it was a perfect look to try out the new Khroma Beauty Kim’s Kardazzle Complete Face Palette with, which I will be posting a review and tutorial for next week! In the meantime, though, check out the “Scream & Shout” tutorial below.

As I may have briefly touched upon before, I am a massive fan of Britney’s and am still very happy to see how well she has risen above the struggles of earlier in her career and made her way back to the top! I am very excited to see what else she has in store for the world, as well, because I definitely think that there has not been a more iconic pop star or celebrity, in general, in the new millennium than Britney. I am also really happy to have taken this opportunity to pay homage to her in my own little way here at Beausic! There is one one more week left here at Beausic for 2012 and I don’t know that it can quite top these past two but I still think that it will be something very fun, interesting and enjoyable that I am really excited to share with you all! The theme for next week’s Friday Feature is something that you probably wouldn’t expect to see here at Beausic but something that I know I personally will have a lot of fun with! I really hope you guys do, too! In the meantime, though, I wish you all a beautiful weekend and a beautiful life!
