    I tuned in at the beginning just to see her trainwreck and wow was it terrible.

    I tried watching another 15 minutes or so of the Awards while doing laundry.

    Now I know why MTV put Britney on up front. They knew no matter how bad the rest of it was (and it was painful) people would only talk about Britney the next day.

    She should be embarassed but so should MTV. In a big way.

    Well, Mandy is 5'10" and the other girls are about 5'5" at most.

    And let's put aside the illusion that her music's better than Christina's, even if we forgave her for the totally creepy solo album.
    What else do you expect people to do with it? Bake it? Take it for a ride? Make sweet, sweet, skull ********? It's a frickin' cable network.

    It does look like Brit Brit enjoys the smell of burning bridges: http://www.nydailynews.com/gossip/2...mtv_lectures_britney_spears_to_behave_on.html

    Britney has no one to blame but herself for that garbage. Instead of taking this performance seriously and dedicating her time to rehearsing and getting rest, she decided to party it up in Vegas everynight. Silly girl.


    I don't think her career is going to make a recovery at this point, folks. She just doesn't have what it takes anymore.

    Her performance was v. rubbish indeed but I can't stand the media commenting on her body. She's had two kids FFS, she looks great. Better than 99% of the female American population in any case.

    Bluto: Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!
    Otter: Germans?
    Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.
    Bluto: And it ain't over now. 'Cause when the goin' gets tough...

    Why do they bother giving her a microphone (headset & pak)? If she knows she's lipsyncing... and WE know she's lipsyncing... what's the point of her having to wear that stupid fanny pack sized battery on her hip?

    It's time for the obligatory 'Washed Up Hasbeens' spread in Playboy.

    She needs to drop maybe 10-15 pounds. But yeah, I see a million dollar deal in Playboy's future.

    In all honestly though, who cares? How many times has she been caught with a tit falling out of her shirt or an upskirt picture without the undies on. So a playboy spread is really really useless as if anyone wants to be ill and see it all, they can.

    It's time for her to go away. Best case scenario for Spears at this moment is that she is somehow checked into a mental institution/rehab program, gets some sort of grip on her life, and steps out of the limelight. If she manages the money she made up to now reasonably, she has enough for 20 life-times.

    I just wish this "end of career" had come approximately eight years earlier.

    The obligatory Playboy spread has lost its luster though, hasn't it?

    These days, celebrities are pretty sexualized to begin with, nevermind the frequent upskirts and nip slips, so there's less of a shock or dissonance that comes with seeing a famous person nekkid. And Playboy's position has been eroded with the advent of lad mags that show celebs in various states of semi-nude, but celebs are less hesitant because lad mags don't come with the "porn" stigma.

    I mean, think about the more recent Playboy pictorials - Willa Ford, who was once famous for dating a Backstreet Boy, Amanda Beard (who we all know isn't as hot as her representation wants us to think) a good 2 years after the Olympics, and Cindy Margolis and Gabby Reece, who are both about 10 years late to the game.

    Meanwhile, Keeley Hazell, who makes a living showing her boobs everyday, refuses the big payday, and they put a previously photograph of Jessica Alba on the cover because she won't take their money. And if you're Vanessa Hudgens and you want a career after High School Musical, you don't do Playboy and risk incurring Disney's wrath; instead, you feign outrage that a bunch of "private" nude pictures somehow escaped your hard drive and were leaked to the internet.

    We don't have Cindy Crawford or Katarina Witt doing Playboy any more. Celebrity pictorials are no longer hot enough to be masturbation aid (Maxim does a much better job, even if they don't show nipples or pubes), and not tasteful enough to be considered art.

    It's kinda sad, because Hef's losing it and they're getting desperate, and they can only get desperate women. The annual college issue is about the only thing keeping them relevant.

    Um, sorry for the essay. But I find the demise of Playboy as an institution really fascinating.

    But if Britney was in there with her airbrushed poonany, you'd buy a copy. Right? :D

    Brit is barely Penthouse material at this point.

    What do they have to complain about?

    They get all the Cheetos and Mountain Dew their little hearts desire.

    Twenty years from now, they're going to find a writer face-down in her pool.

    Hustler?

    Federline has to be shaking his head wondering if he should release the sex tape now before the stock drops further or hope for a rebound.

    Sarah Silverman was right "Britney Spears is 25 and has accomplished everything she is going to accomplish"

    Her career is done
