Britney Spears

Thursday, April 9

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, break out those low-rise pants, because Britney Spears’ circus is coming to town. Under the Big Top (ok, the Tacoma Dome), Britney Spears will crack the whip as ringmaster for what could easily turn from sexy sideshow to complete freakshow. Will she deliver the goods, or should we brace ourselves for a live, in-person taste of Brit’s crazy tabloid antics? At this point, no one really knows what to expect, which makes it all the more exciting. If an review of Britney’s Pittsburg show is to be trusted, we do know one thing for certain: the female audience members will outnumber the men. I’m predicting an older audience of fans than on Britney’s previous tours; the tweens have forsaken Britney for the likes of the Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus, and Britney’s oldest fans are well out of grade school. See, unlike Miley, we’re actually old enough to remember when Brit was still dating Justin. You know, when she wasn’t a girl, but not yet a woman. Thing is, since the “Slave 4 U” video we haven’t been virgins, either. So don’t be afraid to get dirty, Britney: by this point in your career, it’s safe to say that most of your fans are ready, willing and totally legal.
