OK, so we're not really that excited about Britney Spears's hot new album Femme Fatale. Or her 11-city North American tour. Or even her local gig at the American Airlines Arena. The multiple exclamation points were gratuitous and cheap.
But when a former pop tart goes bonkers, flashes crotch at the papparazzi, shaves her head, screams at strangers, and appears to be headed for a private asylum in the catacombs of Orlando, you begin to suspect that her career is deader than Walt Disney.
Yet lo, Brit's regrown her long gold locks and emerged from retirement. (Uh, she was retired, right?) So even if you're not a salivating fan, this is a thing to behold.
