And this woman wrote a children's book?



When asked by her daughter if she was gay because of her mom's liplocking at the MTV awards in 2003, Madonna explained the incident thusly: "No, it just means I kissed Britney Spears. I am the mommy pop star and she is the baby pop star. And I am kissing her to pass my energy on to her."

Ooooooooookay. I guess her daughter's not old enough to understand the concept of a fading pop star desperately trying to reclaim a part of the spotlight and a smidgen of relevancy. (Alternative quip: *insert obligatory jab at Kabbalah here*)

Speaking of Britney, in preparation for my move I've been dismantling my magazine archives and came across this issue of Esquire:



Let's bask in the warmth of Britney Classic.

Excellent Magazine Cover Micah. Isn't it great that Madonna was able to pass her energy to Britney? I actually think Lourdes might actually be able to rise above the craziness of having Madonna as a mother. Plus she has GayDar, which is always a nice talent. :)

... or we could just have a Liza Minelli rerun.

oh yeah, Micah -- you might wanna turn comment verification back on. Just in case :)

GMadrid - It's sad to see what the great Brit has become (and by "great Brit" I mean Mrs. Federline, not Madonna the English wannabe).

law fairy - Thanks a bunch for reminding me. I totally forgot that I turned it off.

spydrz - Ha. Really, this has been time consuming. Going through 5 years' worth of magazine, cutting out the Chuck Klosterman columns, unread interesting articles, and pictures of attractive women. Uh, forget that last one.

It is a great magazine cover. I'm calling Comcast in the morning for the digital box again. Herodotus will probably be joining the moving Sopranos party. I guess at some point mndapnda will also.

I started rewatching season 5 today. I'm 2.5 episodes in.

If I watch it over at Jenny's one week, I'll have to clear it with her with regards to having people over.

Will you be here in time for a marathon Season Five viewing?

Micah said...

If you want to do a marathon one or two episodes into season six, then sure.

You may just have to get them all on demand if you want to watch season five beforehand.

Whew, just passed my assessment for my online part-time job. I shall celebrate by the adding of chocolate to milk.

That is a really great magazine cover. Do you have a full-size image available?

Micah said...

Stuffing envelopes online?

As for a full-size image, no. But the above links to a bigger version of the pic if you click on it.

Two seconds on Google:

it's gonna be really awkward for Britney when her kid asks "If I could drive when I was four months old why can't I drive at nine years old?"

One more reason to think hateful thoughts about her stupid husband.

sigh...Britney Classic.

Micah said...

Anon - Nice.

michelle - I don't think it's K-Fed's fault. Her inner white trash started to creep out before he came onto the scene (I'm thinking of the incident where she went to a public restroom barefoot).

Word has it that she's preggers once again. At least she'll have another toy to play with if her marriage breaks up.
