She always gave credit. Nothing seemed fake or forced with her music as well.

We been knew Britney has always stayed inclusive with involving Black artists in her work, whether as producers, songwriters, or dancers.

I’ve credited a lot of it for why she was so well-liked globally.

one of the few to say she was directly influenced by Janet and Michael jackson.

Loved Prince, Whitney, Toni braxton, TLC, Boyz II men, Mariah carey, Brandy, otis redding etc.

 

She really knew how to show influence but make it Britney too.

well, Private show is a bad version of Tina Turner at karaoke night after a few drinks. 

 

It's not a reach.

I love Britney, but it irks me slightly that when she uses Black songwriters and producers, it's called being "influenced" by Black art, but when other White artists do it, it's called "cultural appropriation". :biblio: The double standards by the media and pop culture "experts" is annoying.

 

Reminds me of how Madonna got away with blatantly copying female movie stars by calling it an "homage", but whenever Gaga was inspired by Madonna, it was considered "stealing". :rip:

Perhaps those other artists were or said problematic stuff at some point. Britney was always attacked in so many fronts, why would people attack her for what she did or whom she worked with when she wasn't actually appropiating anything and had always given credit where it was due. 

 

I don't know about Gaga, perhaps Madonna's fans were coming for her - the same way they did with Britney in the 90s.

It doesn't say "urban". Private Show is clearly inspired on Motown sound.

Agreed. No offense, I love Britney but Gaga wrote songs that were pitched to Britney and they even kept Gaga's vocals on Quicksand. And somehow Gaga was the only one constantly attacked for using the Madonna style...

I understand where this statement is coming from, but I think I see what made how Britney did it different. 
 

Britney always explained that she loved the sound of The Neptune’s, for example. When she collabed with them, the finished product was still very much a Britney Spears song. Britney never tried to pass as darker, change her speaking voice, and use slang in her songs (other pop stars have done one if not all).

britney is the sweetest. to think when I was younger it used to bother me she didn’t have as many writing credits as I’d like but now I stan and admire the fact that she’s always been so real and transparent. This is why everyone loves her no matter what age, race, financial status they are. 
only a handful of people can boast this. Others can’t relate and hate to see it
