In a FADER article, they and several other celebrities such as Charli XCX and Tinashe, talk about 10 years of 'Blackout', along with the QUEEN herself.

Here is what Britney had to say:

QUOTE
Blackout was the first time I worked with Danja, and he gave me the opportunity and freedom to work with more urban sounds and influences. It really inspired me! I also got the chance to sing more and stretch my voice in ways I hadn’t done before. The magic of Blackout was actually pretty simple. It just wasn’t so thought out. I just did what I felt and it worked. Sometimes less is more I guess.
I still perform “Freakshow” in my Vegas show — it’s one of my favorite songs that was never released as a single. It’s so much fun and it gives me the chance to get the audience involved. Oh yeah — it’s sassy. And I love sassy!

Can't wait to read this and comment further! I can feel that so much with every listen. It's Britney completely uninhibited. It's Britney without record execs. It's what we saw start to blossom with the album 'Britney' and 'In The Zone'.

Blackout inspired and continues to inspire pop music, more so than any other album in the last 15 years, even more so than widely acknowledged masterpieces, like Justin Timberlake’s FutureSex/LoveSounds. It ushered in new ways of processing vocals that felt genuinely bold, bizarre, and at times made you feel disturbed and uncomfortable. It showed pop music could be disjointed, disorienting, and downright ugly, but still be fierce and classic.

If you ever wanna see a gay club truly explode, request “Gimme More” and wait for “It’s Britney, bitch” to drop — a true declaration of survival and resilience. Ten years ago, magazines had prewritten Britney’s obituary. No one had witnessed someone so famous come undone at the seams so violently and so publicly. The fact that she didn’t die makes those three words feel so much more important now when you hear it today. LGBTQ people have always looked to their musical heroes to provide inspiration or strength. Protest anthems can be weapons or sometimes armor — but sometimes we also want these songs to strut and slap us in the face.

Nowadays everyone talks about pop music in serious terms, but when I was younger being a pop music fan, especially if you were a boy, could get you in trouble. It often meant you were a ^@**$%. I was always de ant about my love of pop, but after Blackout came out, I refused to feel ashamed to talk about pop albums in lofty ways. Without it, there’s no way I would have been so bold as to launch my label, Tri Angle, with a Lindsay Lohan tribute album knowing very well how it could open me up to ridicule. It was ultimately a middle finger to people who looked down on pop music, and other people (mostly straight men) telling me what was real.



Omg.

And LOL @ them shading JT.
