Oh, Sweet Jesus, Please Let Britney Spears Do the Emmys


There’s been some buzz today that Britney might be making an appearance on the Emmy broadcast, perhaps to perform, or apologize for the VMAs, or both.

Emmy producers have stated that “We cannot confirm nor deny this rumor.”

Personally I think this is the stupidest idea ever. What the fuck is she gonna do? Get up there and apologize for sucking? I mean, it’s not like she lynched black people on stage. Seriously, if we’re all now apologizing for bad live performances, I think we could fill up the entire Emmy telecast with sorries. And why stop at live performances? While we’re at it, whoever actually financed that show about the Geico caveman? You might want to take a few minutes at the Emmys to apologize. And the producers of On The Lot? America is owed an apology. And the final episode of Seinfeld? Someone ought to publicly take the blame for that shit. Also, that Ryder Strong kid from Boy Meets World should say he’s sorry for never even approaching his hotness potential. I still take that personally.

Britney Spears apologizing for sucking at the Emmys is the worst idea ever. Ev. Er.

Oh please, please let her do this.

A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Total Ho


Jessica Simpson might be returning to a market with less competition her Texas roots, according to her father. She’s apparently considering recording a country album.

“Everything in our business is about beats and I think she really wants to sing and country music still believes in that. I think country is the only pure, storytelling kind of genre left,” says Papa Joe.

He makes no mention of Ashlee Simpson embracing this pure, storytelling genre, because, you know, Ashlee don’t sing that well.

Someone Named Mindy McCready Is Going to Jail


It’s a slow news day (except for the OJ story) so you guys get to read about some crazy-ass country singer. Maybe I should just run porn for the rest of the day?

Country star Mindy McCready earned herself a full year in jail for violating probation, just like Foxy Brown.

In July, McCready was arrested in Florida after police responded to a domestic dispute between the trainwreck and her mother. She’d been convicted in 2004 on a prescription drug fraud charge, and was ordered to serve three years probation. She only had a few more months left on that probation at the time of her July arrest.

If I knew or cared anything about country music, I’d make some joke here related to some sort of song she sings. But I cannot name a one. So insert your own funny McCready-related joke here.

More on OJ

From the AP:

O.J. Simpson is denying that he broke into a casino hotel room in Las Vegas.

He tells The Associated Press that he went to the room to get memorabilia that belonged to him, but he says he didn’t break in.

Simpson says he was conducting a sting operation to collect his belongings when he was escorted into the room at the Palace Station casino.

Hey, you guys, wouldn’t it be funny if this guy got off scott-free for a double homicide, but homeboy goes to jail for this?
