Zergnet: Simply Irresistible

I love Britney Spears; always have, always will. I stood by her as a fan during times of strife — umbrella assaults, car seat faux pas, Kevin Federline — and am so glad to see she’s doing well. She’s laying low, pursuing what seems to be her first adult relationship with Jason Trawick, and working on her parenting skills. But one thing about Britney has not evolved, at least in a positive way. Her weave. As one blogger noted, “Virtually every Oxycontin-popping, welfare-loving white girl in every South Boston Irish-ghetto housing project has a better weave than Britney Spears.” Harsh, but also true. How is it possible that a woman as wealthy as Britney, with access to some of the best hairstylists in the world, always has a weave that looks like it was made out of matted Barbie hair? But I don’t want Britney to find herself a decent set of extensions; I want her to liberate herself from her weave dependence. It’s holding her back, stopping her from seeing and appreciating her natural beauty. She needs some tough love. Keep clicking for 10 best of the worst photos of Britney’s weave throughout the years …
There are a lot of circumstances in which it totally makes sense for a man to take his shirt off in public.

There are occasions when putting on a shirt is the right/smart/normal thing to do. Find out what I mean …
This weekend, Lady Gaga‘s little monsters had to battle against the evil, super anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church on their way into a concert. Gaga warned her fans that the protesters would be present, writing on her Facebook page:
“At the risk of drawing attention to a hateful organization, I would like to make my little monster fans aware of a protest being held outside the Monsterball in St. Louis tonight. Although we have had protesters before, this group of protesters are hate criminals and preach using lewd and violent language and imagery that I wish I [could] protect you all from. Their message is of hatred and divisiveness, but inside at the Monsterball we preach love and unity.”
Luckily, her fans held their own, holding up signs that said “God Hates Figs” and proudly sporting gay pride T-shirts. The church has targeted Lady Gaga before, along with a mess of other well-meaning performers. [NY Daily News]
Here are some additional performers who’ve been picketed by Westboro and other religious groups.
