Honestly, this whole thing strikes me as something of a non-story. Some jackass who was an extra on Britney’s most recent video shoot got invited to her late-night after-party at The Standard Downtown, along with some other extras from the shoot. Britney got topless and made out with him, and this is a cover story? Says the guy, 21-year-old Matt Encinias, who probably made a pretty penny in exchange for his story and pics:
“Britney was the first one to undress, and then everyone else followed. I turned around and saw that she was topless and she had fake tattoos of flowers on her nipples from the shoot. I was told all she wanted to do that night was kiss a boy, and that’s what she did. Mission accomplished.”
Spears also started a game of Truth or Dare. â€œI was dared to get naked and get out of the pool and walk as though I was on a catwalk in a fashion show,â€ says Encinias. â€œBritney was laughing really hard.â€
So let me get this straight: a legally single 25-year-old woman decided to unwind after a long day of work by getting drunk and wild with some friends at a private party, and making out with a cute, single, adult, consenting man who agreed to take his clothes off and make an ass of himself?
OH MY GOD. Somebody stop the presses. This is total insanity.
Look, I’m usually the last person to defend Britney, but it’s not like she’s a married woman getting pre-teen boys drunk and convincing them to eat her out. She’s a single adult of legal drinking age kissing other consenting adults of legal drinking age, at a private party, and I really don’t see why this is Us Weekly cover material. If Lindsay Lohan weren’t in rehab, this sort of thing never would have happened.
