Britney Spears Gossip
Britney Spears gossip, latest news, photos, and video.
Heads up – there’s a book review on the way to make up for the chicken fried inundation. I’m sorry… it’s a lot of Britney. But the girl is busy and she’s also releasing a new album. Much to report. Fox News is claiming that this is her official cover for Blackout. Full Story
As predicted, Britney did not attend the hearing this morning – the hearing SHE requested so that her kids might be permitted to stay overnight with her during her supervised visits. KFed was absent as well… but he’s not the one lobbying for a modification of the court’s ruling now, is he? Britney’s attorney claimed that the overnight stays were necessary because the children are being “psychologically harmed” as a result of the existing arrangement. Full Story
I wrote earlier that she hadn’t been out late in a week. Spoke too soon. And gave this f&cking moron too much credit. So Britney asked the court yesterday for a hearing this morning to allow her overnight visits with her babies. Needless to say, by attending in person, she would have further demonstrated her commitment to being a caring and responsible parent. Full Story
So her mother is back in her life, she’s apparently passed several drug tests, she’s actually managed to stay off the club scene for almost a week… and in her mind, it’s a complete turnaround. Which is why Britney’s legal team is heading to court this morning to ask for expanded custody visits that will enable her to keep her boys overnight. Full Story
How sad is it that when Lance Bass writes a book, the only parts people care about are the ones involving Justin and Britney? SAD. So Lance’s memoir is called Out of Sync – lame!!! Us Weekly has excerpted a section that has nothing to do with Lance but everything to do with the fact that Britney and Justin were not to be. Full Story
Britney has apparently reconciled with her mother. Is there hope?
I hope there is hope. Since my nostalgic posting the other day about Britney’s past performances, with a link to her classic Superbowl half time appearance alongside JT and Aerosmith, many of you have sent me more. More trips down memory lane. More reminders of what may be easy to forget in light of the chicken fried loser she’s become.
But Britney was indeed a world class performer, the kind of performer who could fill massive arenas and whip a crowd into a frenzy with crazy quick choreography and super sexy gyrations and while the VMA occasion that comes to mind quickest is her 2001 jungle snake Slave 4 U writhe-fest, I personally prefer the year before. Do you remember Satisfaction/Oops I Did It Again? The nude bodysuit underneath the tuxedo? Sigh. Britney’s old body was all time.
And now that Lynne’s back… perhaps she’ll at least be willing to SEE her kids? Word is Britney bailed on a scheduled supervised visit with a court-mandated parenting coach, resolutely refusing to answer the door, leaving her babies sitting in a car outside her mansion for 40 minutes as the bodyguards buzzed the gate for entry. Multiple outlets are confirming that this went down, including TMZ…but here’s the thing: Britney’s house is guarded 24/7 by the paps. And still there are no photos from the incident. Is that weird to you? Or is it just me? Must just be me.
Monday – Canadian Thanksgiving. Light posting today. Full time returns tomorrow.
Yours in gossip,
As I’ve been reporting all week, Britney’s video for Gimme More is now available on iTunes and will premiere on MTV on Monday. Click here to see it. But while critics have been relatively kind in their judgment, having forced myself to go through it twice, I honestly don’t know what they’re talking about. And I love this song.
First of all, there’s no shot that lasts longer than 5 seconds. Crazy cutting all over the place obviously because she couldn’t hold her sh-t long enough to make it through the shoot without incident. You do remember that don’t you?
The dancing, the styling, the everything… all second rate, especially heartbreaking from someone who is known for bringing the slick. Once upon a time Britney was a first class performer. Once upon a time, Britney was overpackaged but visually spectacular. Which is why images like these are so sad. If you dig deep there’s a glimpse of what she was. How pretty she was. How cute she was. How polished she was. What a great nose she used to have.
Quick confession: had some time to kill last night before The Office started. Decided to YouTube my favourite Britney appearance. It was 2001. It was the Superbowl Halftime Show. Aerosmith, Mary J, Nelly, N Sync, and Britney. She was wearing those silver low riders and grooving with Justin, remember? If not, click here to remember. I remember. Those were the days…
And today is the day!!!
Or, more appropriately, tonight is the night. It is Friday night. And Friday Night Lights the 2nd season premieres tonight. The most perfect season of television is back for an attempt at a repeat. If you still haven’t picked up the dvd… seriously, why not??? Why continue wasting your time on the insulting sh-t that is Grey’s Anatomy and ignore the most wonderful show in years?
Please don’t. Get the DVD, mad rush through it this weekend. And then download the premiere episode of season 2 if you have to. I promise… you won’t regret it.
Have a great weekend. Canada – Happy Thanksgiving!!!
PS. Happy Birthday to Brandy… I hear you and Jen J can’t stand the Alba Demon. Clearly you’re my kinda girl though truth be told, word is she’s been relatively bearable on the set of the Love Guru in Toronto. Maybe her co-star’s douchebag antics have given her pause?
Can we sum up her week? A judge takes her babies away. She is forced to hand them over to her golddigging slime of an ex husband who now looks like an all star. She is legally required to be drug tested twice a week and can only be with her children under supervision. She also has to suffer the indignity of being coached as a parent and then evaluated by the state. Full Story
She certainly does love her freedom, non? Every time Britney’s supposed to be in court fighting for her boys, she checks into a first class hotel instead. What’s that all about anyway? Do drug dealers roam the halls of the Beverly Hills Four Seasons? In Hollywood, it’s actually not a stretch. I’ve seen 16 year olds snorting cocaine off a toilet paper dispenser in the washroom at the Roosevelt and management didn’t seem to care. Trust me…that entire town is f&cked.
But at least Britney has her career, right?
As I first reported exclusively the other day, her label is so jazzed about how well Gimme More sold on iTunes, it will release Gimme More the video on iTunes tomorrow (Friday) followed by an official MTV debut on Sunday night.
Finally watched this week’s Gossip Girl last night on PVR. As my friend Lara said the other day – Girl sh-t is the Best sh-t and what B did to S at the Ivy Mixer was epic. It’s high school for adults and I’m telling you…if you loved 90210, give Gossip Girl a chance.
Thursday – am online all day.
Yours in gossip,
PS. Congratulations to Tamsin – last day before moving on to better opportunities. Good luck!
PPS. And to Nicole as well for passing the CPA exam. Hope you had a proper celebration…if not, you MUST this weekend!
It’s called Tough Love. And it’s about f&cking time. After all, this is a girl who has lived in excess for almost her entire life. Excessive working conditions, excessive partying conditions, with no structure, no limits, no reason to be accountable. And therefore a legendary laziness that is now threatening the welfare of her children. Full Story
