Half my age Ezra Klein writes
Am I A Hundred Years Old?
Songs from the upcoming Britney Spears album have, predictably, leaked onto the interweb (1, 2), and folks are agog at how bad they are. So I hooked up my gramophone and took a listen. And while I agree that they're very bad, they sound very bad in a way that's indistinguishable from any song Fergie has ever recorded. Also, they're too loud, and my prostate hurts.
I don't even know who "Fergie" is !
(Last I heard she was Duchess of York -- really)
update: Some YouTube assistance. She sure is good looking. The music is generic pop. Hasn't changed since I was Ezra's age.
