It’s Not Just Me

posted by on March 26 at 13:46 PM


Even the New York Times is obsessed with dissecting Britney’s every move.

(For the fascinating true story of how Britney’s VMA outfit—pictured above—came to be, check out Vanessa Grigoriadis’ legendary Rolling Stone story. And don’t miss the Britney-specific cover story in this month’s Atlantic…)

Did you catch her on How I Met Your Mother (CBS) Monday? I thought it was great!

One month later, she's recovering by acting and shooting videos, just like on last week's South Park.

An article in the TV section on a guest appearance isn't a great example of "dissecting her every move". The Atlantic article was good though.

Alessandra Staley rules by the way, though this piece wasn't a great example of it.

I have nothing nice to say.

I will say this, I agree with @1.

Maybe she should concentrate on her acting career instead.

Hm, I see we've reformatted the comments section...

Is it just me, or does Brit's head look a little too small in proportion to the rest of her body?

And if the rest of the Mainstream Media went and jumped off a bridge... oh, never mind.

call me lame, but when I got this month's Atlantic in the mail, I was pretty disappointed. I mean, come on...if I wanted to read a magazine with Britney on the cover, I wouldn't buy the freakin' ATLANTIC MONTHLY...

I agree the Grigoriadis article is a must read. I am not remotely obsessed with Britney and I was fascinated.

I did watch her on "How I Met Your Mother", but only because I love that show. Neil Patrick Harris is on my list.

Well, NPH did get her in the end, @9 ...

Each of her boobs is as big as her head, I fail to see a problem there Comte.

Head-to-boob ratio: Check.

But does she not have the longest navel in the world? You could populate that little crater-island.

The Atlantic article was fascinating even if you'd never heard of Britney. It wasn't about Britney, it was about the new breed of paparazzi.

ATTN Atlantic editors, it's Sam Lutfi, not Lufti.

I always thought she actually seemed to have a healthy-looking body in that outfit...

Posted by Vasya | March 26, 2008 5:13 PM

Oh, yeah, it's healthy-looking. She's got another 5-6 years before the Chee-tos start to show....

Except for the bemused, oblivious stare, I think she looks hot in this pic.
