Salon.com business | Seven days in May: Britney Spears does it again! “I’m pretty sure 12-year old girls who buy Britney will buy Eminem,” – interesting and witty report from the heart of chartland, courtesy of Salon. If Britney fans do buy The Marshall Mathers Album, they’re likely to get a shock: “Kim”, from that LP, is one of the most effectively nasty things I’ve ever heard, putting anything I’ve come across by shockmavens like Nick Cave or Lydia Lunch into the shade, and 1.4 million people will be buying it this week alone. Is it good? I’ve no idea, but it’s been a good couple of years since I’ve been so reluctant to even play a track again for non directly-aesthetic reasons…
