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.


Natalie Portman to Guest Edit Issue of Scholastic Math

“Math was one of my favorite subjects at school. It always gets a bad rap and I’m not sure why… Sure you need to use math daily for knowing how much tip to leave at a restaurant or how much flour you need to make double the amount of cookies in a recipe, but it is the less obvious practical parts of math that are most fun for me – like considering the principles of infinity. It made me excited about life to consider the limitlessness of the mind and what we can do with it.”
