The night the lights went out a Planet Hollywood for Britney Spears, every drunk gal with dreams of a basic bitch weekend in Las Vegas (aka me) wondered how could life go on knowing we would never have the opportunity to play slots, get hammered, and belt out “Lucky” in the presence of the actual “singer” of the song. Well, those dreams were restored last night when Brit Brit finally gave official acknowledgement to what we’ve known all along: she’s just moving her show across the Strip to the Park Theater at the Park MGM. The way she announced it, though, had some people wanting her to gimme gimme more. Sorry, I just had to.
The other day we learned that Kevin Federline got what he wanted by getting more child support from Britney Spears. KFed reportedly got $20,000 a month for 11-year-old Jayden James and 12-year-old Sean Preston, and was trying to get as much as triple more because Brit Brit is bringing in more coins. Team Brit supposedly gave in to his demands and agreed to give him $35,000 a month, but she’s about as happy as she is when Daddy Spears serves her a plate of broccoli that ain’t covered in three layers of Velveeta.
Britney Spears and Kevin Federline were slapping at each other over money, specifically child support. KFed wanted Britney to pay him more money and said she was acting like a diva (which she is) and Britney wasn’t really interested in all that (or rather, her father wasn’t) but she did end up having to fork over $100, 000 in legal fees. Well, it seems that won’t be the last pile of cash she has to fork over to the former Mr. Britney Spears. Continue reading
Christina Aguilera was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, and she dished on everything from her old rivalries in the 90s to Nicki Minaj and Cardi B’s fashion week spat. She got started on how the media liked to hype up her own celebrity rivalries back in the day, and she might actually be the only person who wishes Twitter was a thing back then. She claims that, if Twitter existed then, she could have then shut down rumors that she wanted to pull out Britney Spears’ weave or steal her Beanie Babies or whatever it was people were saying was going on in the 90s. She said that if there had been social media, they could have done a song together. Jimmy claims they could still do that, which got Christina to agree…with a bit of possible shade.
It’s hard being Britney Spears, y’all! After years of performing in the same theater in Las Vegas, they’re trying to move the gal around on a world tour across Europe and North America. She’s run into a bit of trouble in jolly ol’ England, though. While she loves Britain because she can easily blend in with her authentic British accent, she hasn’t exactly gotten down the names of the cities. She performed at Brighton Pride and had to be reminded by a backup dancer of where she even was. This past weekend, she was in Blackpool and got it mixed up with Birmingham. The concertgoers weren’t entirely pleased.
E! News says sometime in the concert, she belted out, “How you feeling Birmingham? I mean, Black..pool?” Give her a break! I’m sure before she even set foot on the stage, she had to be taught Blackpool wasn’t a Ryan Reynolds movie:

The crowd kinda responded with a mix of booing, laughter, and “Oh boy.” Some on social media griped that she should have known better since Birmingham and Blackpool are 125 miles apart AND the stage was on the Blackpool Promenade next to the Blackpool Tower. I say pish posh to that! Britney doesn’t need to bother to read things like us commoners, and I’m sure she spent most of her Paris performance saying “It’s good to be back!” since her four-year Vegas residency was next to the Paris Casino. Black…pool? got off easy!
When the greatest export of Kentwood, Loo-see-anna, goes Cockney, it can sometimes spell trouble. While Madonna spent most of the early aughts sounding like everyone’s annoying roommate with a bad faint British accent because she spent three months abroad in London, Britney Spears took one on as her own during her umbrella-wielding breakdown in 2007, and it was alleged she was babbling and using one backstage at the 2016 VMAs (I’m sure that was just because she was pissed after a producer said they might have Madge introduce her). Brit Brit is back at it these days dancing and “singing” around the world, and she took her latest performance in London to show off how she could pass as a local. Move over, Claire Foy! Someone get this woman a part on the next season of The Crown!
Britney was performing at the O2 Arena on Friday for her Piece Of Me tour. What had me shocked is that she was actually engaging with the audience. I guess what had the Londoners shocked is that she tried to do so with what she thought was a British accent:
I think she mistook a concert stop for the Oliver Twist revival audition room because she asks in a pretty heavy accent for each side of the arena to make some noise, “Are you guys ready? Do you think you can do this?” Clearly, they couldn’t because that side of the room didn’t so much screech as they loudly golf clapped. HRH Queen of Frapps was having none of it and asked “What the hell is wrong with you?” Shame on you, London! When Britney says jump in a British accent, you reply in a bad Southern one, “As high as Gran-deddy did when Granny found him in bed with the moonshine?!”
