Everyone needs to speak their truth and express themselves artistically. Some artists, however, don’t want to be locked into just one form of artistic expression. Take Britney Spears for example. Sometimes lip-synching in a fatigued manner and making half-hearted attempts at choreography isn’t enough for a true artiste. And that’s why she takes to the canvas and paints.
Britney threw on a halter top and some booty shorts to show her Instagram followers one of her many talents. An artist in the post-Impressionism mold, her deliberate brush strokes and thoughtful use of color reveals more about her than “E-Mail My Heart” ever could. Actually, she could probably put this on Etsy and some crazed fan would spend big bucks to snatch it up. It’s a whole new revenue stream for Brit.
I’m surprised it took as long as it did but the universe has finally given us the Las Vegas Pop Diva encounter we’ve all been dreaming about. No, not the one where Celine Dion and Cher have a Fear and Loathing fueled all-nighter that starts at the carousel bar at Circus Circus and ends with them doing a duet of Enough is Enough (No More Tears) while standing on top of a rundown school bus blazing through the desert at 60 miles an hour with a wake of dust, sequins and glitter trailing behind them. Sadly no, it’s the one where Britney Spears and Mariah Carey run into each other at a dinner party and chatted for a while over an extremely un-photogenic meal!
Can I just type that it’s nice to see Britney Spears acting so ordinary and with it and just aware of life? Her demeanor for the past decade has been sort of “vaguely medicated and really just wants to get home to watch Big Brother on the DVR.” Yay for Britney being conscious and snippy! My new favorite Twitter user, due to their handle alone, Britney fan @emailmypussy, posted this clip of Britney dealing with a drunken fan during her “Piece of Me” show in Vegas on Wednesday. UsWeekly says that this dude, Shawn, was brought up on stage to dance during Brit Brit’s rendition of “Freakshow.” Shawn and his improperly worn chest harness had obviously been at the slots for a long time, because it looks like he partook of many a free, watered-down cocktail.
Spears asked for his name and age before walking closer to him to autograph a white T-shirt. As soon as she took a few steps in Shawn’s direction, she said, “Oh, my goodness. You smell like you have a lot of alcohol on your breath! Everybody give it up for Shawn! Jesus Christ…”
She sounds surprised. Is ANYONE sober at a Britney “Piece Of Me” show? The audience is mainly going to be gays and bachelorette parties, right? I’ve been to Vegas a couple of times. There might have been a brief five minutes when I wasn’t boozed. Then again, alcohol is my lover. Watch Britney drag drunk Shawn below.

Britney’s back, bitches! Much like an elusive Bigfoot, Nessie or Jersey Devil sighting, Britney Spears has once again been caught on film in the wild, SINGING LIVE, which is something that has only been the stuff of legends for many years.
Britney, covering Bonnie Raitt‘s Let’s Give Them Something To Talk About in a creamy layer of irony, looks pretty good! Decked out in full Spirit Halloween store version of “Cher on an aircraft carrier” regalia, Brit Brit struts her stuff and prepares for glory. Ok, it starts off a little shaky (does she cross herself? I have watched this clip so many times now that it all just feels like a fever dream at this point), she takes a deep breath and plunges into the song with gusto.
I’m a singer; I know that that first note often sets the tone for the entire song. In Brit’s case, that tone is called “dogged determination.” So it’s a little rough and growly. Brit looks amazing and she is gonna sing this fucking song all the way through if it kills her! And it does get better. Brit finds her vocal sweet spot on the chorus and the audience is clearly loving everything she is doing. Britney is so cute, y’all! I’m happy for her and for these lucky fans who will have a wonderful if unlikely story to tell their great-grandchildren around the campfire someday.
First the likes of Adele and Celine Dion learn that Katie Price is back in the live singing game, and now they’re learning that Britney Spears is singing live during her shows. This is probably the real reason why Adele might retire from touring. How can she ever compete with the live vocal stylings of the Cheetos chanteuse?
I’m using an old picture of Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton as wax figures, because Lindsay has a better chance of getting Paris’ wax figure to show up to her party than the real thing. But what’s the difference really.
