The topless photos of Britney Spears—published yesterday in News of the World—haven’t even been posted on Perez Hilton. (Drudge is also a no-show at the Britney pics party.) Those of us who have labored in the salt mines of the gossip blogs easily recall a time only some months ago when we would have been texted to attend to our laptops when some Britney topless action occurred on a weekend. Now there is a giant gaping silence. (Part of the problem is that her non-breast parts, as photographed, look so unbelievably terrible. Perhaps everyone feels bad!)
This is sort of embarrassing for everyone! It is pretty much like someone ripped off her top at a party and everyone was like “Oh boy, call her a cab right now, she is bringing us down and this is not sophomore year of college.”
I seem to remember that, back when the video was released, the idea that one could maybe possibly see a bit of Brit-boob if one watched the “Gimme More” video in slo-mo was a big deal. Of course, I also remember that the “Gimme More” video was originally supposed to have a plot, so.
(Can we also all just admit that Blackout > Circus?)
UPDATE: Oh hey, there we go. Guess the Internet had a case of the Mondays!
