I have a set blogging routine, and it doesn't usually involve raving about Britney Spears on Sundays. Or at least, it didn't, until she released an awesome new song.
Have you listened to/watched the video for 'Criminal' yet? (It's great.)
If you have, you know it's about a woman falling for a criminal and basically becoming his 'Bonnie'. Sound familiar? ;) Well, if it doesn't, allow me to direct your attention to the image below...
'Criminal' goes perfectly with my book Taken Hostage. In fact, if I had to choose a theme song for the story, it'd definately be 'Criminal'. It probably goes without saying that I love Britney's new song. I used to listen to Britney as a kid, back when she made her debut, but this song definately isn't for children. But for grown-up criminal-hero writers like me...it's perfect. :)
As Britney says, "This type of love isn't rational, it's physical." That's basically the driving theme behind Taken Hostage...what my heroine Tiffany does isn't very rational, but that's what makes it so hot.
What do you think of the song?
