Pop Tart Lacks Foresight

Britney Gave Up Her “Umbrella”

Britney Spears‘ bad career choices extend far beyond her aborted collaboration with Justin Timberlake:

Rihanna’s “Umbrella” could have taken a very different form if it had been recorded by the artist who initially expressed interest – Britney Spears.

Whether you love or hate Rihanna’s take, it’s difficult to deny that it’s a fairly effective pop song. and Ms. Spears has done well with undeniably catchy singles like “Toxic” and “…Baby One More Time” – songs that honestly even could have been hits had they been recorded by a cheeky sea lion. if she had snagged “Umbrella,” it could have relaunched her career.
