I mean, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna did too, and they both performed with Britney, but those gals are people you’d expect to see at these things these days. Britney, on the other hand, is still a re-emerging star, coming back from the grips of mental illness and Cheetos.
We’re going to cover the remainder of the show with a complete list of the winners and a crap ton of photos, but as I consider these duets to be the best moments of the night, it’s first.
“I think he’s adorable. I just saw his movie, and I really didn’t realize how big he was. He’s enormous; he’s just Mr. Man. A lot of the movie is really similar to what I did when I was starting out. I did a promo tour for a year, going into radio stations and all that. It was so cool to see our similarities.”
Seriously though, what sort of crazy spell do you have to be under to have just noticed the majesty of Justin Bieber? Britney might be broken, but last time I checked she wasn’t the kind of broken where she can’t open her eyes or ears to observe the world around her.
I know that you guys are special and privileged in that you get regular updates on the Biebz, but do you know people like Britney who aren’t aware of Mr. Man?
Here are some more recent photos of Britney’s gradual recovery. She was photographed playing a concert in LA this past Saturday, and she’s looking really well these days.
… I mean, even if she IS missing an acrylic nail off of one of her pinky fingers and her eyebrows STILL look like they belong on the lady that used to come into the grocery store that I worked in during high school – the one who kind of had wild, unfocused eyes, drew half of her brows on and left the other half to grow where they saw fit, and who also looped dark brown lipliner in giant arcs above her top lip.
The lady always carried a floral-print burlap bag, and one day, the bag actually spilled over in the store. I approached the woman and helped pick up her belongings (OK, more because I wanted to see what the fuck she kept in that bag than just being a good samaritan and helping her out, but being nice did have a part to play). The bag’s contents consisted of miniature stuffed dogs, a lemon (which, to this day I’m STILL convinced she lifted), decade-old TV Guides, forty different Wet ‘n Wild lipsticks, all mostly of a dark brown shade, two pairs of socks, marbles in a ripped plastic bag, a neti pot (?), and hypodermic needles (I know, I was like GTFO, I’m totally not touching these).
Girlfriend’s getting better (supposedly), her career is on the up and up again, so what’s a lonely girl with fucktons of money to do when she’s bored? Throw a southern-themed party at a private residence in Beverly Hills!
Britney, whose body is looking AH-MAZING in these photos, seems like she’s having a good time, and she’s glad to be hosting big galas that attract big names, but the number one thing that gives away girl’s true mental state? Her askew and awry eyebrows. I mean DAMN. There’s a close-up in the gallery down there and if those stray strands don’t just scream ‘I’m not well!’ then I don’t know what does.
Britney Spears‘ former manager Sam Lufti is suing her mother over claims that were made in her memoirs about his character and manipulative relationship with her daughter. In order to build his case, Sam asked that Britney tell her side of their extremely complicated past in court. Only problem there is that Britney’s parents think she’s mentally incapable of testifying in court.
In a motion filed on Monday at Los Angeles Superior Court, Lutfi asked a judge to order a psychiatric evaluation of the singer to prove that’s not true.Despite Spears’ comeback, she’s still under the conservatorship of her father, James Parnell Spears, and family lawyer, Andrew Wallet. Both are hesitant to let the singer get too close with Lutfi, who was fired in 2008. Read More
Way to be ten years behind the time, Mobe. I know you’re perpetually stuck in, like, ’99 or something, but publicly outing Britney on her general off-balanceness is so last decade. On Britney, Moby says:
“Britney’s actually kind of like a broken-down shell of a human being, that’s what makes her so endearing and compelling. She was lovely, but really broken. Like, (A Streetcar Named Desire character) Blanche Dubois-style broken. Actually, the most entitled people I’ve met are indie rockers and indie actors, because they really believe their press.”
This would be the appropriate place to say, ‘Ugh, Moby – get some new material.’ And praise the cosmos, he HAS. His next album (which hits stores next week) is supposed to be more acoustic than anything, so you better start picking up the pot again and laying off the rolling for a little while at the very least.
Do be sure to let me know how it is.
