  • Israeli party postpones elections due to Britney Spears gig

    04/06/2017 3:36:24 PM PDT · by Eleutheria5 · 37 replies
    Israel’s Opposition Labor party announced Wednesday that it is postponing its internal elections because the date clashed with a Britney Spears concert. The party explained that the concert would lead to traffic congestion in the Tel Aviv area, that it would be difficult to recruit security guards on that day because they would all be going to the concert, and that they would be not be able to hold an election event at one of their preferred venues. Therefore, they decided to postpone the elections by a day. .....

    A helicopter pilot and Britney Spears ex-boyfriend — who helped the pop princess quit booze — has been killed by Taliban fighters in Afghanistan. John Sundahl, 44, was shot down during a flight from Kabul, where he’d been working as a private contractor transporting officials across the war-torn nation, according to the Daily Mirror. “She is devastated,” a source close to Spears told the UK paper. “Britney thought he was a lovely man.” A former real estate whiz, Sundahl dated Spears, 33, in 2007 after they met at Alcoholics Anonymous in Los Angeles. He spoke openly about her alcohol abuse.

    No one ever thought Britney Spears' songs were untouched in the recording studio, but the singer's voice without Auto-Tune is even worse than we could have imagined. On July 2, the unedited vocal version of Spears' track "Alien," off her most recent album, "Britney Jean," leaked — and it ain't pretty. Take a listen: CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO... The video has picked up so much steam online that the song's producer, William Orbit, posted a statement to Facebook explaining that the track is from a vocal warm-up session, not a final take.

    'As soon as the pirates get a blast of Britney, they move on as quickly as they can,' says merchant naval officerIn an excellent case of "here's a sentence you won't read every day", Britney Spears has emerged as an unlikely figurehead in the fight against Somali pirates. According to reports, Britney's hits, including Oops! I Did It Again and Baby One More Time, are being employed by British naval officers in an attempt to scare off pirates along the east coast of Africa. Perhaps nothing else – not guns, not harpoons – is quite as intimidating as the sound...

    Thanks to our President and his effects on our economy, I have plenty of time on my hands to help the PResident retire as a "on-termer." I know there are several freepers that can use their skills to complete a music parody- perhaps even a singer to croon to the alternate (Alt- ) verses. It's a catchy tune and has so many things going for it- the insanely ludicrous reference by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) of the Astronaut's Mars landing, the Socialist red jump suit, a birth certificate reference, media reference, incompetence, and the deity complex...enjoy. Cheers- Cain Obama...

    Britney Spears has proved that she's a pop star with a patriotic side. The superstar singer provided free tickets to her live show for a group of U.S. Marines after they made a YouTube video of her song Hold It Against Me, which became a huge internet hit. The singer, 29, even took time out to pose with a group after her show yesterday in Anaheim, California. 'So honoured to meet the marines of HMLA-169 'Vipers' who made that amazing HIAM video. -Britney,' she tweeted after the concert, with a picture attached. The video, which has had over three million...

    Daily Mail UK ^ | 02.21.11
    The video for her new single Hold It Against Me debuted just last week but Britney Spears and the first song from her new album has certainly made an impact, although perhaps not in the way she was hoping for. In fact, the 29-year-old singer is being accused of plagiarism and is facing a multi-million dollar lawsuit. Britney is accused of ‘ripping off’ the rock ballad If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me by the Bellamy Brothers.
  • No Off Button on Sarah Palin (Huge Barf Alert!!!)

    01/13/2011 10:24:25 AM PST · by Kaslin · 81 replies ^ | January 13, 2011 | Debra J. Saunders
    This is a free country. If Sarah Palin wants to run for president in 2012, she is free to try. But she will not win the GOP nomination because Republican voters are not going to choose a middle-aged version of Britney Spears -- a figure whose most evident talent is to attract attention to herself -- to challenge Barack Obama. It's this simple: Republicans are too smart to nominate a candidate with a 50 percent unfavorable rating, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll, before she has declared for office. Cue to Palin's latest video, in which she...

A lawyer for her ex-husband, Kevin Federline, called the case "baseless". According to papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Mr Flores alleges that Spears made repeated, unwanted sexual advances and summoned him to her...

    11th August 2010 The man who helped launch the career of Kylie Minogue yesterday condemned modern pop culture for 'sexualising' youngsters. Mike Stock, one third of the legendary pop factory Stock, Aitken and Waterman, said: 'The music industry has gone too far. It's not about me being old fashioned. It's about keeping values that are important in the modern world. 'These days you can't watch modern stars - like Britney Spears or Lady Gaga - with a two-year-old. 'Ninety-nine per cent of the charts is R 'n' B and 99 per cent of that is soft pornography.' He continued: 'Kids...

    Britney Spears is celebrating her third #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, coincidentally with her new single "3." Spears debuts in the top spot with her racy new track this week. "3" sold over 255,000 downloads this week to also take #1 on the Hot Digital Songs chart. With the #1 debut of "3," Spears becomes the first artist to debut at #1 on the chart in over three years, when Taylor Hicks debuted with "Do I Make You Proud" in July of 2006. Spears might also become the only non-"Idol" artist to have a #1 debut this decade. (Carrie...

    This week ABC News sent Twitter all atwitter with a photo of Britney Spears sporting a Star of David necklace. Has the pop star, asked ABC, converted to Judaism? The comeback queen has had a variety of religious dabblings over the years, including Kabbalah and Hinduism, despite her Baptist roots. But this sighting has fueled Internet rumors that Spears may be engaged to her latest and, perhaps, most wholesome boyfriend, Jason Trawick, who happens to be Jewish. My answer is: doubtful. Conversion to Judaism is a long affair: many months, if not years of study, work with a teacher or...

    A FRENCH computer hacker is thought to have tapped into Twitter's internal system, gaining access to millions of accounts including that of US President Barack Obama. The hacker, under the name "Hacker Croll", posted a series of screenshots showing him viewing internal website settings and the private details of user accounts. The screenshots show Croll looking at the behind-the-scenes details for the account of US President Barack Obama, including the IP address of the last person to use it. Twitter co-founder Biz Stone confirmed unauthorised access was gained by an outside party during the week, but said only 10 individual...

    If he chooses to keep the anger in his voice, diatribes, and campaign he will only be injuring himself. And that's the saddest part of all. Because believe it or not God loves Mario/Perez and wants him to find real peace, true joy, and lifelong contentment. Come to think of it, that might be why Perez fights so hard against normalcy, Jesus knows his name and has his number... but Perez keeps hitting the button sending the communication straight to voicemail.

    WASHINGTON, DC - Sparking bipartisan outrage on the Hill, House Minority Whip Eric Cantor admitted to skipping President Obama’s economic press conference to “Get his dance on.” As the news of Cantor’s whereabouts Tuesday night began making the rounds on the Hill Wednesday afternoon, House Minority Leader John Boehner was unavailable for comment, but a staffer requesting anonymity, told the Weekly World News that his boss was, “Crazy jealous. He loves Brit Brit. And that presser was bo-ring to the max.”
