It’s definitely an interesting mix. At first it has vibe like Madonna’s Ray of Light, then later it has a Spice Girls feel. (What is with the marching band beat lately? It’s popping up in a lot of songs). At 2:36 we get into classic Britney sound. I think it’s cute, but not something that will go in my mix. That’s okay, though, because as much as I love her, I don’t love love every single song of hers. I like the “Come with me and be my Ooh La La” line. Add this one to this year’s growing list of summer beach songs. I can feel the summer calling us already. It’s in the air for sure.

Now that’s the way to do the dirty laundry! Stuff is as real as it gets. Love her.

Wade is telling the truth. The part about MJ saying they loved each other and how MJ told him those acts were an expression of that love rings too true. Brainwashing is a well known tool that abusers use against their victims. As is the rehearsal of how to answer questions anyone may ask. Suing the estate may be a symbolic gesture – to have what was stolen from him returned. Agree with Trent and Shannon about how it just isn’t normal for a grown ass man to have sleepovers with children. An average Joe would be charged immediately at the suggestion of such a thing. MJ may have been talented, but he was also flawed in the worst way.

@Trent – I just tried to post a reply to Krissy and it disappeared so it is probably in the spam folder as well. I normally would not mention it, but I think it the information is useful. :)

@Krissy – you are correct in that ovarian cancer is a silent killer. It can be asymptomatic until it advances into a late stage, and by then, it has usually metastasized to vital organs or other areas. Prognosis at that point is usually very poor.
There is a blood test that can detect a protein in ovarian cancer cells. It is called the CA-125 (short for cancer antigen -125). It is not a perfect test, because it can’t prescreen for disposition, and only has a 50% accuracy for stage 1. The accuracy increases to 85% for stage 2 and higher. It is something that is currently available and more and more insurance plans are beginning to cover the cost. Not sure if this will be included in the list of no cost screenings once Obama care kicks in. If not, it certainly should be.
Here is a link for John Hopkins Ovarian Pathology page for anyone interested in learning more about it:

You can’t see the moment of impact, but you can sure hear it.

I know someone who was sexually, emotionally and physically abused as a child by a stepfather. I knew him before the abused occurred, knew him while it was happening, and know him now that he is an adult. We tried to get help for him because we were people outside of his “family” who realized what was happening. The psychological changes in him after the nightmare started happening were astounding, and the happy, loving child we once knew ceased to exist. His mind locked that sweet child away in a safe place, and the person we encountered after the attacks began was a mere shell of him. He had a distant, far away look in his eye. We tried to intervene, but were frustratingly unsuccessful because that boy would not tell the courts what was being done to him. His mind would just not let him process the horror. His young mind also knew being labeled a victim carried with it a stigma and all he wanted to do was fit in with the other kids at school. As an adult, he will acknowledge privately that we were right, but he will not level charges against the monster who abused him. That part of his past is locked safely away in some memory vault and he just doesn’t want to access it now. He just wants to move on with his life as it if never happened. Making those decisions is the ONLY control he, as an abuse victim, had and has in the situation. It may be subconscious, but it is a way for him to cope with having been so helpless and having control of his body (and his childhood) taken away from him.
It takes MASSIVE COURAGE for Wade to come forward with this now. So many victims just live with the aftermath of psychological pain that abuse inflicts. I believe him, don’t think it is any wonder why he previously testified as he did. I’ve seen it firsthand, and it is devastatingly heartbreaking. If telling the truth now is a step in his healing process, then I support him 100%. It’s more about him than it is MJ.

These days, Britney fans are receiving massive returns for their loyalty. Back in the days when we were all so concerned, we dreamed of seeing her back on top like this. It is so rewarding. She is looking better than ever, and her it’s like she never missed a beat in her career trajectory. I love the darker blonde. Her eyes tell a story, don’t they? Her energy is happy and serene. Heart her.
