    (CNN) -- Could her current U.S. concert tour be Britney Spears' last dance?

    She may seem as popular as ever, but it appears fans are not buying Britney like they used to. Just compare her smash-hit record, "Oops, I Did It Again" that sold 8.9 million copies in 2000 with her current release, "Britney," which has sold 3.7 million copies in the U.S.

    A&M Records president Ron Fair seems to have an explanation for the pop princess' slump. "The same kids who two years ago were buying 'N Sync and Christina Aguilera records are responding to styles of music that are more song- and artist-driven. They haven't heard that music sung by their peers before."

    CNN anchor Arthel Neville talked to Rolling Stone Contributing Editor Toure on Wednesday to get the inside scoop on Spears' status and those who may be in position to take the lead in the fickle field of teen-driven music.

    I hope all that boy band girl crap finally goes away for good. It happened with the Spice Girls and the Back Street Boys aren't as popular as they used to be. Hopefully the trend will continue.

    It's become taboo to like pop artists now...I'm glad the shakeout's finally happening.

I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    That's the problem when you sale 10 million copies. Watch Creed's next album.. it may sell about 3 or 4 million, and everyone will be saying the same thing about them.

    Music business is cut throat... besides.. it's time for her to go anyway. Where the hell is Chrstina Aguilera? (see what I mean)

    Britney will roll around just as every other music trend has. Thank god this crap rap will take a dive too....eventually. But then the next trend will be the same.

    Note how the A&M Pres. knew *exactly* what kids today will respond to, just as they did back with Britney. It's all about popularity and finding that niche, never about the music.

    Is Rolling Stone becoming the next Tiger Beat? I knew they lost journalistic credibility a long time ago, but damn!
