V70 SPRING 2011
On the cover is another icon of music and fame, Britney Spears, photographed by Mario Testino in a series of portraits that capture an ever-evolving star. This year will doubtless be hers as she emerges with an album that has comeback written all over it. Not that Ms. Spears is coming back from anything, because through it all she has produced music that never ceases to get us talking, Tweeting, downloading, and, ultimately, dancing. When we think Britney, we think good times and great songs—minus the pretense. And we want to get closer.
