6THE WEDDING IS OFF!

From Radar:

Britney Spears and Jason Trawick had planned a romantic and intimate winter wedding, but after incessant fighting between the two, the impending nuptials have been called off, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

“Britney and Jason had planned to get married at the end of December, but they have been fighting non-stop so the wedding has now been called off,” a source close to the situation tells Radar.

“They are telling their friends it’s being postponed, but they will probably never make it down the aisle. Britney doesn’t think Jason is any fun and resents him because he acts more like a second father than a romantic partner, or equal.

“Britney and Jason have been sleeping in separate bedrooms for a very long time. She has been staying in a hotel during the week because of the live X Factor shows, and although Jason stays at the same hotel, he is in a room adjacent to hers. Jason feels like he is Britney’s babysitter and it’s pretty much just a business arrangement at this point. Jason does love Britney and the boys, but he just can’t see himself spending the rest of his life with her,” the source says.

“Britney’s parents are absolutely devastated that the wedding has been called off,” the source continues. “Lynne is very close to Jason and views him as one of her children. Meanwhile, Jamie feels that Jason shouldn’t have proposed to Britney if his heart wasn’t in it, and feels a little betrayed. It doesn’t help matters that both Jamie and Jason are co-conservators of Britney. The whole situation is just sad for everyone.”

I was all set to trash this story – it’s from Radar, they probably got the date wrong and they’re running this story to cover for when Britney and Jason don’t get married next month – but it makes sense, doesn’t it? Jason started out as her agent, remember, and since he’s a co-conservator, I think it makes perfect sense that it would feel like a business relationship. That’s what we’ve been saying all along: either Britney can handle her own life and doesn’t need the conservatorship, in which case her father and Jason are just using her, or Britney can’t handle her own life, in which case she doesn’t need to be making the choice to get married right now.

I’m concerned, friends. I truly am.

2I Hear Britney Spears is Writing a Book

photo of britney spears pictures
From the Hollywood Reporter:

Britney Spears is close to signing a book deal, The Hollywood Reporter has learned, with plans to write a novel. Her rep confirms that It Books, an imprint of HarperCollins, which has released many popular musician memoirs (among them: autobiographies by Sammy Hagar, The Game, Slash and Motley Crue), is having “discussions” with the singer. (A rep for It would not confirm.)

A source tells THR Spears would pen a roman a clef for the publisher. The story would incorporate fictionalized versions of her own experiences, much like Lauren Conrad’s 2009 New York Times bestseller L.A. Candy, which was about a girl who moves to Los Angeles and becomes the star of a reality show. Conrad, who starred in The Hills, has written two more novels since.

No word yet on when a Spears book may be released, but with the singer appearing on a network TV show (and being paid handsomely for it — in the vicinity of $15 million) and having sold nearly 100 million albums worldwide in her career, the advance is likely to be substantial.

Oh, so it’s not exactly a memoir and not exactly fiction? Well that leaves a lot of room for interpretation, doesn’t it? I mean, can you imagine what kind of zany experiences Britney’s Britney’s handlers are going to write about? There’s going to be nothing of bathroom cocaine, creepy sex with men who have flavor savers, burns from Marlboro Light, or what it was like to bang Justin “Ramen Noodle-head” Timberlake back in the early noughts?

4Lucky Magazine Had to Apologize for Their Britney Spears Cover

A photo of Britney Spears

Yeah, that’s fair. It’s not like this is the worst magazine cover I’ve ever seen, but I’m a firm believer in apologizing when you’ve done something wrong, and Lucky magazine did, in fact, do something wrong.

Look, this is Britney Spears. We all know her. We probably all know too much about her. And we definitely, definitely know what her hairline looks like. And this hot mess of a wig is just not it.

Here, check out another photo from the shoot:

Oh, and here’s that vague apology, sent by Twitter:

“Thank you all for sharing your thoughts on our cover! As always, we will share with our team and we’re sorry to have let some of you down.”

Is it so much to ask for that magazines just take photos of people as they are? It is, isn’t it? But Britney’s been looking so good lately, and she has her own weave situation under control, and god that wig is just awful.

And just by the way, about the interview itself? Not that interesting. She gives a lot of generic quotes about her kids and about ignoring critics, which, you know, good for her, but still, not that interesting. She did give one quote that made me a little sad though. When she was asked about Jason Trawick and what made him different from all the other douchebags she’s been with, she said “He was sweet. He says he doesn’t mind that I sit around in sweats all the time.” Like that’s the greatest thing about him, that he’s not too upset that she doesn’t do full makeup and slip into a sexy dress every single day. That’s sad, right?

7Love It or Leave It: Britney Spears Should Probably Always Have Bangs

Looking good, right? Best Britney‘s looked in years? Well. Maybe. The photo’s sort of from afar, and it’s slightly, slightly blurry, so we’ve got that going on, at least. Seriously, though, all jokes aside, Britney should probably always have bangs from here on out. They change her entire face, and I don’t mean because it hides a quarter of it.

Even when she was younger, and not so meth-addled (?), she looked way better in bangs. Take this picture for instance:

Hot, right? Even when she was at her hottest, this was pretty hot.

Let’s go and compare it to this one:

Even though the photo is automatically bad because it’s got Kevin Federline in it, the bangs picture is still way better, to be fair. Let’s take another look at how much better all of these photos so far are way, way improved when you consider that this is what Britney’s hair used to look like:

OK? I mean, really, is there any reason to continue debating this at all?

9This is Definitely the Best Britney’s Looked in Years

photo of britney spears pictures photos
Yup. For certain, this is most definitely the best that Britney‘s looked in a really, really long time. Maybe there is something to that Britney-Justin reconciliation, huh?

This is what girlfriend wore to a recent salute to Whitney Houston that was held at the Nokia theater in Los Angeles, and her eyes, guys—her eyes are practically … normal. I think that speaks volumes, you know?

Someone also in attendance at the tribute? Jennifer Hudson. And if I’m not allowing the recent, alleged tiff between her and Jessica Simpson to color my opinion of her, then I can say this is what she wore and how I pretty much hate it:

You know that there’s something wrong when Britney Spears Post-2002 is outshining you. Get a better stylist, Jen. Or maybe just better clothes. Criminy.

4Blind Item: Is Britney Trying to Win Justin Back?

photo of britney spears and justin timberlake pictures
From Blind Gossip:

Which troubled pop star flew to Las Vegas on the pretense of business, but really hit Sin City with the hopes of reuniting with her first true love? The only hitch is that the famous exes are both engaged – to other people!

So we all know how much Britney just loves her some Las Vegas. And we also know that Justin recently spent his faux-bachelor party there, under the watchful eye of Jessica Biel. Also, as far as “troubled” pop stars go, can anyone think of anyone more troubled than Britney? Rihanna comes to mind, of course, but Rihanna’s not engaged to anyone—neither is Chris Brown. But Britney? Well. She is. And so’s Justin.

Do I think there’s a chance in hell of this happening? No f-cking way. But hey. It makes for a good story, huh?

Let’s keep in mind that this was the last thing Justin’s ever said about Britney:

“We were two birds of the same feather—small-town kids, doing the same thing. But then you become adults, and the way you were as kids doesn’t make any sense. I won’t speak on her, but at least for me, I was a totally different person. I just don’t think we were normal; there was nothing normal about our existence. We spent way too much time being the biggest thing for teenyboppers.”

And this was the last thing Britney ever said about Justin:

“I’m still hurting but I am trying to see it as an experience. The worst thing is everyone wants to talk to me about it. Everywhere I go people are asking how I am. I am the type of person who can’t go from a serious relationship and then just start dating someone else straight away. It’s a strange feeling getting used to being single again but I suppose I’ll have to cope. I’m just starting to get the knack of it because ever since I was 15 I’ve been in a serious relationship.”

So. Wonder if Britney is still hurting after all these years—hurting enough to want to put the moves on Justin a decade later?
