Obnoxious Fan Rushes the Stage, Scares Britney Spears

Britney_spears_circus While performing "Womanizer" at her Connecticut concert on Saturday night, a man rushed up, jumped on the stage, and made a beeline right towards Britney Spears.

In the video after the jump you can see that Spears adjusts her sunglasses to look down and is then visibly frightened by the man, shaking even, before her backup dancers descend and drag the guy offstage where he was promptly arrested.

File Under: Oh Sure, Why The Hell Not - Franz Ferdinand Covers Britney Spears' "Womanizer"

Thus proving that Franz Ferdinand can make any song sound EXACTLY like Franz Ferdinand:

Someone should give them some death metal, see if they can Ferdinandize THAT.

Twas recorded for the BBC Live Lounge program. And sure, it's a bit messy in parts, but overall I deem it to be filled with gratuitous amounts o' win.

ETA: The MP3 sounds even better!

Britney Spears Pays Almost Half A Million Dollars to Divorce Kevin Federline

Britney_spears They say you can't buy love but you sure can buy getting out of it.  In what may be the most expensive celebrity divorce ever, Britney and Kevin's cost $417,000 in LEGAL FESS ALONE.  That does not include what she pays in spousal support and child support. 

And all of her legal fees, for all of her cases, 2.7 million dollars.

I have the wrong clients, that is all I am saying.

Britney Spears' Ex Adnan Ghalib Ordered to Stay Away for Three Years

Adnanghalibbritneyspears Those hoping for a reunion between Britney and Adnan will have to wait a tad bit longer. 

Britney's ex was forbidden to have any communication with her or get within 100 yards of her for the next three years, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Aviva K. Bobb ruled yesterday.  Guess he will no longer be part of the paparazzi following her.

The orders also prevent Adnan from contacting Britney directly or indirectly through phone, mail or e-mail, as well as forbid him to claim that he represents her interests. Others protected by the order include Britney's parents, siblings and her children.

Britney Spears' Father Obtains Restraining Orders Against Britney's Ex-Boyfriend


Britney's father and lawyer Andrew Wallet, who oversee her affairs as co-conservators, obtained restraining orders against her former manager, Sam Lutfi, her ex-boyfriend, Adnan Ghalib, and a lawyer.  They allege the three men "are now working in concert to disrupt the conservatorship with utter disregard for Ms. Spears's health and well being."

Jamie Spears is alleging that Sam is attempting to contact Britney again, even though the original retraining order against him lapsed in July because they believed he was no longer a risk.  Her cell phone records show numerous text messages from him and also from her former boyfriend, Adnan, who Jamie says is exploiting Britney for his own financial gain.

Raise your hand if you are shocked about that one.

Attention Harvard Grads: Wanna Like, OMG, Twitter for Britney Spears, Y'all?


Twitter is currently the target of a nuisance-y phishing hacking attack -- you get an email asking you to confirm your username and password via the link provided, and then BWA HA HA, the lulz, theyz happenz.

Valleywag is keeping a running list of the victims, which so far include Barack Obama, Facebook, a couple news anchors, the Huffington Post and Britney Spears.

Britney's camp, in particular, is PISSED. Someone's been fired over it (though there's conflicting info over who), and they've posted a job advertisement for a new social media manager...on a Harvard-only private job board:

How Procrastination Gave me the Final Word on 2008

While my fellow Mamapoppers were regaling you all week with their top picks of 2008 I sat at my computer paralyzed. I mean, coming up with a list conveys that in some way my opinion matters. Knowing that hundreds of thousands of people are going to be logging on and reading what rocked my world this year was just too daunting. So I procrastinated. And then I realized that you’re just here trying to get the latest scoop on Speidi and couldn’t give a monkey’s butt what I think. Then it became really easy to write.

So without further ado or numbers--

Britney’s Big Comeback
Britney has come a long way since January when she was getting regular rides from ambulance drivers and barred from seeing her children to finishing out the year with liberal visitation rights, snapping her body back into enviable shape and releasing her latest album “Circus.” Dare I say this Pop Princess deserves the title of Comeback Queen?

Emma Watson Says the Word 'Naked' to a Reporter, People Go Nuts


Former statutory difficulty Emma Watson ("Harry Potter and the Krumpnarch of Blotzflotz") recently told Camilla Long in The Times Online that under the right circumstances she'd be willing to go naked, or "get her kit off," as the English like to say.  In the article, called "What Next for Emma Watson," she also told Long a bucketful of non-naked factoids about herself, her family, her hopes and dreams and probably the price of tritium of Mars, but absolutely nobody cares about that stuff.  Because she said the word naked, out loud, and now that she's eighteen, all the creepazoids who masturbated to her preteen face and figure may now fondle themselves with impunity. Until they notice Elle Fanning or something.

Britney Spears Feels Old and Boring

I just got done reading this article by Alex Dobuzinskis about how Britney Spears is saying she feels old and boring.

At 26.

*Sarah rolls her eyes like crazy*


Let us pretend for just a moment that I wasn't 10 years older that Britney. AND I AM NOT OLD DAMMIT!


Does that picture look old or boring? She may not be in as good of shape as she was when she was 18, but who of us is? She had two children, let's cut her some slack for that. Honestly she still looks way better than I would in a sequined bikini and fishnets.

Madonna to Bring Britney and Justin Together Onstage Tonight?




Metro Dick Clark, a.k.a. Ryan Seacrest, announced on his radio station yesterday morning that he "has got word" that Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake will appear onstage together to Madonna's show tonight at Dodger Stadium.
