Part of Britney's problem is she lost her core audience. I'm the mom of what used to be her two biggest fans, they had a bunch of their friends over and were playing some of her songs on cd. And they started talking about how awful she dressed and how "nasty" she was. These little girls were just shocked. They can't watch her videos because their parents don't let them and what they do see they don't like. Now, I'm sure she could have lost the preteen and young teens fast anyway but it seems like she went out of her way to be seen as "adult" fare, when she really isn't.
