That girl is hanging on to media attention in any way she can, since her record sales have plummeted. Britney honey, you're so 2001.

I voted "other"

Britney has always been a sexy little girl trying to look like the sexy ladies. Now that she's 21, she's still trying to do that, not realizing that sexy is an attitude, not just a look. Until she discovers this, she'll always just be a young girl trying to approximate the look of a sexy woman with attitude. Sure, she's pretty easy on the eyes, but without substance behind that, I wouldn't give her a second look (awaits obligatory pat on head from nerudite).

yep, you nailed it! As soon as I saw her I thought of Blad Runner. I must need to see the movie again. This is the third referance to BR Ive seen today. Shes gentle to the eyes, but yeah, where's the rest (as if that really matters in this case).

She's gotta lose the bangs, but otherwise I strongly approve! Say what you will about her horrible music, diva attitude, and skanky image, she is quite an attractive woman.

So, maybe she is still actually a virgin. Or, at least, hasn't gotten the hang of really enjoying it. Sexy is as sexy does. Hormones and a real commitment to damn well enjoying it are Key there. I think it helps to be a hedonist.

I have spouted off to a few friends that I think the real reason Madonna gets called a 'bad' woman by a lot of folks and really stirs up controversy is because she is sexy for her own pleasure and clearly insists on 'getting hers'. If she were merely sexy in that 'boy toy' fashion, she would hardly raise an eyebrow. But saying "I do it to please ME, not simply to cater to some man's fantasies'", gee, that threatens the whole status quo.

Britney's new look: desperately trying to be interesting when she is boring inside. A stage. I think everyone goes through something similar in the process of exploring their sexual identity. It seems so outrageous -- until you discover its been done a million times before and is only new to little ole innocent you. Then it starts to feel a little silly. When you cannot do it with a straight face anymore, it gets hard to pull of The Look.

She just has the misfortune of having to go through this publicly, where a bunch of opinionated strangers (like us) can talk about her. ;) You guys missed my leather skirt and garter belt stage. Of course, people who are not 'stars' cannot walk the street looking like the pics of Britney -- without either being arrested for street walking or assaulted. So, naturally, 'normal' women never dress quite like that in public. Nor do the stars, actually. They only dress that way for photo shoots and publicity stunts. I am sure she doesn't hang out watching TV like that.

OK... here is how it is... If I where given the chance, I would be all about it. But, I am not going to fly to LA, she would have to come here. But if she called, I would be more than happy to take her out for a burger, and a movie.

A handful of female porn stars have made it to legitimate show business, so why shouldn't Britney go the other way? Oh, there's a thought. Britney in a lesbian scene. Now that would be sexy. ;)

Those pictures look like they were taken while she was working a window display in Amsterdam!

Yeah, she's right there with Christina now! Working a bit of the heroin chic in there too.

I love the corset but not her, gutterslut look. one can push the limits of society and their own sexuality with out getting trashy. She seems to have zero self respect and thats the most important thing for a woman-you dont have it the men sure as hell wont.

get her nasty arse off my computer and radio

NEXT!

Britney this, Britney that - I thought she was hot too, until that night we hooked up in LA. She really wasn't any more exciting than any other girl I've been with. I still get e-mails now and then but I've moved on. (That snake thing is an inside joke between us - I won't get into it.)

Really, as a fan of the "girl next door" look I don't find her new any more attractive than a dept. store manequin.

one word: skank.

I've never liked her anyways... much less her "music".
Wow... and you are actually in her target audience/age bracket.

Her "music" is easy to workout to- I get a mental image of her abs and it's a motivator. Otherwise, she's trying too hard to make a commotion like Madonna did, although Madonna did it and made it look natural. :)

I'm sorry but the picture of her in the corset is HOT! There is something forced about the pictures however. While Madonna always seemed perfectly natural and at ease looking like a ho, Britney still looks like she's playing (naughty) dress-up. Although I'm no musical fan of hers I have to take up for Britney and say that she is nowhere near the skank Christina is.

Pity Christina

I used to be SUCH the Christina Aguilera fan. ...it's true.

I mean, Genie in a Bottle? That's an awesome song. But she went supernova into trampville really quickly. My friends ridiculed me when she did the Lady Marmalade business, and Dirrrty really got me laughed at.

It's hard to stick with a pop star when she makes such mistakes.

I don't blame her, really. I think she got bad career advice from her agent/manager/whatever.

Some times it's nice to remember the early days.

"If you wanna be with me, baby there's a price to pay. I'm a genie in a bottle, gotta rub me the right way."

...how I long for the old days...
