"I think that it may have been therapy for her."
Britney Spears’ Blackout era is bittersweet. The star clearly hit a rough patch in her personal life, but it produced some of her best work to date. To celebrate the album’s anniversary, talked to RuPaul’s Drag Race and America’s Got Talent alum Derrick Barry, known for his uncanny impersonation of the “Piece of Me” star.
“Blackout is one of those albums where you could just listen to it all day long and every song is good,” Derrick said. “It was a different direction that she had gone in. So, I think that it may have been therapy for her -- recording that album and feeling like she got to try new things and put things out there that weren't her in catalog before.”
