Happy birthday. If 18 and 21 are the "good" birthdays, and 30 and 40 are the "bad" birthdays, what do we make of turning 25? I like to look at the positive side of things: You're old enough to have grown up responsibilities, but young enough to still party hard and get away with it.
For me, birthdays are a time to take stock of the life lived and the future ahead. Right now you're working on your next album, trying to avoid the sophomore slump that hits so many artists while sticking out among the crowd of young female divas currently swapping the top spot on the charts.
As a fan of both your music and pop in general, I'm writing you this letter hoping that you'll really think about what you have planned for your next album and the next year ahead.
I'm worried about the future of pop music and you, dance commander, may be our only hope.
