Today's Evil Beet Gossip

WTF? (Quotables)

“Blackout,” her first studio album in four years, is not only a very good album, it’s her best work ever _ a triumph, with not a bad song to be found on the 12 tracks.

Granted, a Spears rave should be put in its proper context _ it’s not like we’re talking Bob Dylan here. Spears is a lightweight singer who only flourishes when she has great songs and great producers to supplement her minimal vocal talent.

But when she has that help, she’s fierce. And she gets that boost on every single track on “Blackout,” a sizzling, well-crafted, electro-pop dancefest that should return her to pop’s elite.

From the AP’s review of Britney’s new album.

Yeah, Things Aren’t Going So Hot for Britney

Oh man. Poor girl.

When asked by an “Extra” reporter in the hallway outside a Los Angeles Superior courtroom as to how she was doing, Britney Spears shouted out, ““Eat it, lick it, snort it, fuck it!” Spears walked back into the courtroom crying.

Snort it?

What could “it” refer to here? I can’t think of any one thing you can eat, lick, snort and fuck.

Pie, maybe?

Diluting the Britney Spears Coverage

Okay, so I know some of you are really, really sick of hearing about Britney’s custody hearing today. I have to put this shit up for the people who do care, but I’m gonna try to dilute it a little bit for the rest of you.

So here we have a photo of Britney arriving to court today along with an adorable photo of Carrie Underwood in sweats, checking out of her NYC hotel.

A spoonful of Carrie helps the Britney go down!

(Who am I kidding? Britney doesn’t need any help going down.)

It Doesn’t Appear That This Custody Hearing is Making Britney Very Happy

She keeps taking “bathroom” breaks, during which she changes up her hair, make-up and, sometimes, sunglasses.

Observers say she’s been crying and seems very upset.

No press allowed in the courtroom (originally it was just no recording devices, but the judge changed his mind), so we won’t have any news on what’s actually going on until the hearing is over.
