Day 3 of My Week with Britney - Piece of Me

Day Three of My Week with Britney Spears and today its Piece of Me. Released in 2007, Piece of Me was a bit of a fight back from Britney for all the press interest in her at the time.

Taken from her fifth studio album, Blackout, also released in 2007, Piece of Me is a feisty pop number. It reached number 2 in the UK singles chart. Make no mistake - this is a defiant record.

Take these lyrics for example :
"I'm Miss American Dream since I was 17
Don't matter if I step on the scene
Or sneak away to the Philippines
They're still gonna put pictures of my derriere in the magazine"

Its quite clear Britney is making a point with this song. What doubt there may be in the lyrics, she confirms in the video. Quite clearly, although Britney is mega famous, the pressure and constant intrusion into her private life had reached breaking point! I can't say that she managed to change anything, but it was the proverbial two fingers to the paparazzi!

All in all, Britney looks great in the video. She sounds good and this is an entertaining little pop number. Go take a listen and let me know what you think.
