Britney Spears is having a tough time selling Britney Jean, y’all. According to Billboard, it’s her lowest debut ever, moving only 107,000. By comparison, her last album, Femme Fatale, moved 276,000. She landed at #4.
And guess who is in #1? Garth Freaking Brooks.
Seriously, did we time travel? Garth kicked Britney’s ass, and is, according to Billboard, “is tied for the most No. 1 albums with the Rolling Stones and Barbra Streisand, with nine each. Ahead of them on the all-time most-No. 1s list are Elvis Presley and Bruce Springsteen (both with 10 No. 1s), Jay Z (13) and the Beatles (19).”
Guess we can’t expect a huge viewing for her docuseries. Let’s hope her massive Vegas residency fares a lot better or Britney Jean is Britney Flops. (Sorry, that wasn’t even a clever pun. I couldn’t think of something funny that started with “J”. Go for it!)

It’s heeeere! Time for Britney Spears‘ video for ‘Perfume’. It’s an interesting one, guys – we’ve got BritBrit lying in a bed in lacy lingerie trying to look innocent, BritBrit cuddling up to a blonde hunk, BritBrit singing about wanting to “mark [her] territory” by putting her scent all over this man to take back to this other woman he’s with now that they’ve broken up… you get the hint.
This song is kind of a hot mess – basically Brit is the other woman and doesn’t seem to think this is a problem. And yet this is the song she personally relates to? What’s going on in this girl’s life? SMH.
What do you think of ‘Perfume’?

Britney Spears just turned 32 and seems to have it all, except for one important thing — a baby girl. She’s got 2 boys she loves dearly, but she wants her own “mini-me” and that’s something she thinks she can get from a baby girl. From InStyle via Huffington Post:
I would like to be busy the first couple of years, but then I would really like to have another baby, a girl. I think she would be like a mini-me. I think it’s going to be crazy. I’m not going to feel as alone in the world anymore. I’m going to feel like I have a second person, like, that’s me.
Wow. I don’t know, but that seems like a lot of pressure to put on a baby.
What do you guys think about Britney’s comments on wanting to have a baby girl?
(Also, doesn’t she kind of look like Hayden Panettiere on that cover? What’s up with that?)

I feel really awful for Britney Spears. I know I’ve given her a hard time in the past for not having much of a personality to speak of, but she’s been through a lot and given the way she’s been treated by everyone from her own father to her so-called “friends”, I can see why she might be afraid to show it. Speaking of her “friends”, Sam Lutfi, that old fucker, is back on the scene again after sharing some of what are meant to be private texts from Britney in which she admits to being really sad and hating her life because her every move is controlled and her dad is greedy and wants all of her money. Dear God.
So what exactly prompted Lutfi to share these texts? Well, someone asked him on Twitter when Britney’s father might release her from her conservatorship, to which he replied, “Hmm good question, here’s an old text from her you be the judge” before posting a series of messages. Now, the messages aren’t even dated and there is no way to verify that they’re actually even from Britney, but even if they were, what a dickhead. “Britney” even says in the messages that she considers Lutfi to be a true friend and one of the only people she can talk to… and what a way to show your loyalty than by posting private and really heartbreaking texts on Twitter? Absolutely awful.
My guess, however, is that these are fake. Let’s not forget Lutfi already has a restraining order against him. Sure, that was filed by Jamie Spears, Britney’s dad, who Lutfi claims is the real villain here, but I dunno… it just doesn’t ring true. Two of these “texts” look like something he typed up on his phone and then just took a screencap of, and the others are in green, which on an iPhone previous to iOS7 was for messages you’d sent, not received, right? (I can’t remember so this is a legit question!)
The “texts” are below. God, people are terrible – either for sharing it or making it up, that’s just such a shitty thing to do.
