Britney Spears has had her busiest week in years, quitting her job, breaking up with her fiance and possibly moving to Las Vegas. It sounds like the plot of an empowering woman-having-a-midlife-crisis book-turned-movie that would star Julia Roberts. But this is Britney Jean Spears we’re talking about so imagine that but with more chili cheese fries, tetanus and menthol cigarettes.
Where to begin. First it was reported that Britney Spears quit her job at the X-Factor because she was about to be fired. Then she split up with her fiancé, Jason Trawick,who’s been babysitting her for the last couple of years while conveniently having sex with her too. It’s reported the two split because Britney wants to do more baby making (she’s from Alabama, it’s inherent,) and he’s already had it up to here with the two hellions that Britney already has. Now, TMZ is reporting that Britney is in talks to move to LasVegas to headline a show and could potentially earn over $100 million a year for the gig.
In totally unrelated news that should be related, in the newbook by pulitzer-prize winning author Lawrence Wright, Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief, Wright details how the Church of Scientology auditioned several actresses back in 2004 under the guise of a role in Mission Impossible, but they were really looking for a third wife for Tom Cruise. The book claims Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Alba and Lindsay Lohan were all considered for the role of ‘beard’ before church officials settled on Katie Holmes.
How are they missing this? Britney might as well have a gigantic target on her forehead. The girl hasn’t made any decisions for herself since 2008, she’s the exact kind of celebrated, malleable dim-wit a cult would kill to get their hands on. And it wouldn’t even be hard, they would just have to pull up in an ice cream truck, throw a burlap sack over her head and tell her they’re taking her to Taco Bell. It’ll be three years before she realizes she never got that Nacho Bell Grande and extra large Mountain Dew.
