Remember back when Britney was trying to hightail it out of her vicious mental breakdown-and-prescription pill-and-alcohol cycle? Shit, she wasn’t even able to make the cover of Parade. But look how far she’s come! She’s on the cover of Glamour UK’s October issue, and she’s looking so, so good!
The issue hasn’t hit newsstands yet, but we have an exclusive interview snippet from Brit herself, where she discusses topics like the Royal Family and growing up.
On learning and growing and growing and learning (and turning thirty later this year):
“I think the older you get, the wiser you get. I can’t wait. I’m really excited and definitely gonna celebrate and do something spectacular. I’m gonna be in South America so I’ll have to do something pretty fun. A carnival of Britney? I don’t think I’ll be doing that! It’ll be something a little more low-key.”
On the possibility that Prince William and Kate Middleton might be fans, attending Brit’s shows:
“That would be amazing. That would be really crazy and cool. I think they’re a beautiful couple. Unfortunately I didn’t get to watch the wedding but I heard it was beautiful.”
On bringing home more cinematic gold like Crossroads (yes please!):
“I would love to do more movies and venture out into those aspects. It’s something I’m still hoping to do.”
You know, I’ve got some forever-love for you, girl, and I hope all of your dreams come true (especially that whole acting bit … I really need this to happen)!

Wanna know how I know Britney Spears’ career is on the mend? Because I can remember when even Photoshop and good camera angles couldn’t even make her look good. This, in itself, is evidence that while Britney may never quite arrive again, she’s certainly, and perpetually, on her way.
The 2011 VMAs are on Sunday, August 28th at 9/8c.

Remember little Maddie Spears? The baby who allowed Jamie Lynn Spears to put a stop to her fledgling career? Well she’s stepping out herself, into the spotlight, and into people’s hearts nationwide. I guess. Some people are saying “Mah god, will these Spears women never learn their lessons?” and others are saying “Aww, how cute.”
And those cheers in the background after little Maddie sings her ditty? The loudest one is definitely that of Lynn Spears. You can practically hear the dollar signs in her eyes.

This is a photo from one of Britney latest tour stops, and from the bridge of the nose down, she looks good. Really good. But then you let your gaze wander up, and it all kind of goes to hell from there.
I’m sad for Britney – I really and truly am. I know she’s doing what makes her happy, but it’s apparently not enough. I wish we could go back in time and figure out where everything went so wrong, and just …I don’t know. Either make sure it happens all over again or try to avoid it at all costs. I’m feeling a little under the weather today, so I’m not really sure what end of the spectrum my mood on this is falling right now. Still, like Brit, I just know I’ll figure it out sooner or later.

Well this isn’t awkward or anything. Having to stand next to Britney and translate her words into both Spanish and Portuguese, while she remains idly by, wringing her hands and straining to read the words on the cue card through all of that eyeliner and all of those … eyebrows? I know Britney’s come so far over the past few months, and we shouldn’t give her so much flak, but … meh. It’s what we do.
Either way, good on you, Britney, for riding this wave for so long. If anyone deserves a monster comeback, girl, it’s you.

One thing I’ve got to say is that Britney‘s really kicking things up with this tour, all these singles, photo shoots and new videos. Girlfriend has got her game ON. This video is probably the best yet, in that she’s charming, engaging, dancing like a normal person and not someone with metal bars reinforcing their skeletons, and her eyes? LOOK SANE. Seriously. No crazy eyes to be had in this video.
However, there are a few questionable things to be seen: ripping off Half-Baked‘s famous “fuck you, I’m out” skit (I wonder if she got permission to, like, do that. That’s probably some pretty big trouble if she didn’t, y’know), flashing a police officer in front of a minor (ding: MORE big trouble), and yesterday’s “bust a pap in the mouth with a mic” thing. Promoting violence are we? And the ending is just weird. Is that supposed to be an Adnan Ghalib-alike? And what’s with the milk – and the seashells?
Regardless, I’m on board for a full-on Britney revival, and it doesn’t look like it’s that far off.
