Oops, she did it again

With her latest incident in which she shaved her head, Britney Spears has officially joined a select list of celebrities who can no longer do anything that would surprise me (like Mike Tyson, Dennis Rodman, Michael Jackson, O.J., etc). Think about it, if you were to read later today that she went on a killing rampage, would you be surprised? I wouldn’t. It would be tragic and horrible, but not surprising. In fact, I think it’s more surprising when a day goes by for that girl without incident. The scariest part about Britney though is that there’s nobody around to stop her, so this has the opportunity to go on until she’s arrested, injured, or even lying dead somewhere.

I’m reminded of a Chris Rock joke where he said something along the lines of "remember when we used to debate about who was less crazy, Michael Jackson or Prince? Prince won!" Eight or nine years ago, we were having a debate about who would be the bigger star, Britney or Christina. How dated does that seem now? Yesterday night, Christina was looking great while performing at the NBA All-Star game halftime show. Britney was presumably staring at herself in the mirror, crying, and looking like Demi Moore in "GI Jane". Just awful.

    The only thing that would surprise me is that if we fast forward 10 years and she lives on a farm with her husband and kids and HASN'T killed someone.

    I'm just thinking she wanted the curtains to match the carpet.

    (and I apologize for going there...)

    "Britney shaves head, drapes now match carpet". Don't apologize for that, that's good. I'm almost tempted enough to make that the title of this post.

    How about "Brittney goes with wooden blinds to match laminate flooring"
