The Spirit of Britney?

Posted by: Karenannanina on: October 28, 2017

You’re right, it isn’t Britney! But if I couldn’t have Britney, this is the girl I would choose. Who is it? Well, it’s Louisa Johnson, the teenager who won the UK X Factor two years ago.

So, in what way does Louisa relate to the Spirit of Britney? It’s not in singing style, because Louisa is a straightforward (but thoroughly excellent) vocal diva. No, the answer is simple. She “gets it”. Unlike all previous X Factor UK contestants, she realises that you don’t get a lot of headlines and attention purely by singing. You have to use everything you’ve got, and if you have beauty and a great body, you can’t take the puritanical – if understandable – view that you shouldn’t have to use them.

As a new young teenage star, Britney was the first to stun the media with her unashamed use of bare skin and willing promotion of a coquettish and Lolita-ish sexuality. Guys noticed her unusual body. For a white girl, she was the first to possess a great ass. And that’s very important in the assessment of sex appeal, as Kylie Minogue and J.Lo will tell you. Almost 20 years later, the world of pop music still has not come up with anything comparable. Katy? Nope. Taylor? Nope. Miley? Definitely not.

But Louisa Johnson has it, and she’s not afraid to show it. Her gallery is full of pictures of her curvaceous booty. And she shows skin at the slightest provocation. OK, her frontage is modest compared to Britney’s, but it really doesn’t matter. I hate to see brilliant young singers appear and disappear after one season at the top, for want of the ability to engage the paparazzi. Louisa Johnson isn’t going to let that happen. And for that reason, she gets my Spirit of Britney award.
