When it comes to new[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Britney Spears[/lastfm] or any kind of hint of[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Madonna[/lastfm], I’m not too picky. Combine the Queen of Pop with the Pretty Pop Princess that is Britney Spears, add a dash of crazy, a sprinkle of modern dance beats, and it seems like you’d have a bonafide summer dance floor scorcher.

Yeah, not really. Spears’ cover of my favorite Madonna song, “Burning Up,” makes me want to virtually burn every copy of the cover on the internet and replace it with Madge’s original.

Britney Spears sounds like a child with a bad cold and the beat is as dry as boxed pancake mix. And when you are really hungry sans eggs and other ingredients, that is really dry. Simply put: Who decided that nasally mix on Spears’ voice sounded good?

I guess you can’t tamper with greatness, no maybe how hot your talent burns. I’ll just stick with dancing ’till the world ends. Now that is a fluffy musical pancake.
