Thirty-two years ago today, a legendary pop star was born. It’s Britney Spears‘ birthday, bitches! To celebrate Brit-Brit’s day of birth, we thought it would be prudent to answer a series of very important life questions using only the infinite wisdom of Britney Spears GIFs. Read on to get your shit sorted out by life coach Britney… Keep reading »
“[Britney] was young and I could see the stress on her face. I was like, ‘Do you want to go to lunch?’ and she was like, ‘Yes, yes. Let’s go to lunch,’ and then someone behind her would go, ‘No, no, no. You have interviews you have to go to vocal coaching, you have to go to the gym and then you have to go on your tour.’ And she was like, ‘Okay, maybe later.’ And I was like, ‘Let’s go to dinner tonight.’
So I went to her hotel and I invited her to come out with me and we went to a club. She was underage so I snuck her in the back door and we did a little dancing and then people sort of swarmed on top of her and then she got stuck at a table hanging out with people, chit chatting and I was like, ‘I’ve got to go to work tomorrow can I go?’ And she was like, ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah. No, go I am good. They will get me home.’”
– Melissa Joan Hart, AKA Clarissa Darling and Sabrina Spellman, who is currently on a media blitz to promote her new memoir, Melissa Explains It All, shared this slightly disturbing little anecdote on Bethenny Frankel’s talk show this week. Hart, now 37, is 6 years older than Spears and apparently the two became pretty close friends in the mid 90s (although hello, Girl Code clearly states that you should never leave your underage friend with random people at a nightclub). MJH also revealed that she once made out with Nick Carter in a hotel room, and that she never found James Van Der Beek attractive. So there you go. [Daily Mail]
Happy Halloween from Britney Spears and her Madonna-esque faux-English accent, which she utilizes to recite the opening monologue of “Thriller” while cavorting, uh, creepily alongside green-screen ghouls and graveyards. I don’t completely understand what I’ve just seen, but Bert-Bert looks conscious, which is ALWAYS a good thing. [Jezebel]
As a Scorpio, I’m loyal to a fault. That’s why, even though it’s been 11 years since they broke up and they both have significant others and probably nothing in common anymore, I am still praying for Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears to get back together. Sorry, Jessica Biel. Nothing personal. It’s just that, in 2000, when I doodled “Britney N Justin 4 Eva” in my notebook instead of paying attention in Lit Theory 101, I meant it. FOREVER. And maybe Justin did too, if a far-reaching analysis of a hidden track on the second part of The 20/20 Experience is to be believed. Keep reading »
Yesterday on “Good Morning America,” Britney Spears arrived in a helicopter, hovering above a sea of fans holding cards that formed a 10-story likeness of the pop icon. So what if she arrived having just puked, wearing no shirt and too sick to do a proper interview? The point was that she had an important announcement to make and she needed to do it in style. That’s right … Britney Jean Spears is coming to Vegas, bitches! After rumors and suspicious tweets, the pop star confirmed that she’ll be doing a two-year residency at Planet Hollywood in Sin City. “Britney: Piece of Me” will debut on December 27th. Obviously, what The Frisky wants for Christmas is a group of front-row tickets to her first show. SANTA … PLEASE!? Or Brit’s publicist?? Once we heard the news, we immediately started casting, choreographing and sequencing her Vegas extravaganza. In case anyone on her team is reading, here are a few of our initial requests for “Piece of Me,” along with some of our favorite Britney GIFs. Just because. [Washington Post] Keep reading »
Britney Spears fans, rejoice! (That’s me! I’m rejoicing! Love Britney!) The singer’s first new single in awhile (okay, excluding that meh song she did for the Smurfs movie) leaked online well in advance of its expected Monday night release. “Work Bitch” is pretty basic lyrically — surprising, I know — and seems to be mostly about Britney’s newly returned work ethic. Or something. Whatever. It’s a total club banger and I am now even more excited for Brit’s next album of songs I can pretend to strip to in the privacy of my bedroom.
I’m not sure why comedian and blogger Francesca “Chescaleigh” Ramsey — who you’ll remember for her “Shit White Girls Say To Black Girls” and “Olivia Pope’s ‘Scandal’ Makeup Tutorial” videos — was inspired to imitate Britney Spears covering Beyonce’s “Grown Woman,” but I’m glad she did. Uncannily hilarious. [YouTube]
Justin Timberlake is back! I mean, he never really left, right? But he’s back in original JT form, as a singing dude, with a Not At All Contractually Obligated record, The 20/20 Experience. “Suit and Tie” and “Mirrors” (which I think sounds like terrible ’90s era boy band soft rock) are both blowing up the airwaves, and he’s also on the new Jay Z record, so therefore, he’s everywhere at the moment. But you didn’t think we forgot about Justin Timberlake’s long pop culture history, did you? Or the fact that he owns a small soul food restaurant chain (aptly named Southern Hospitality). Plus, he’s got another restaurant named Destino to keep him warm.
After the jump, eight more things you may have forgotten (intentionally or otherwise) about Justin Randall (!) Timberlake:
