A year ago, that was HUGE news and we, and other gossip sites, were knocked for six as hoards of people came over to investigate what was going on. I remember saying at the time how it would have utterly melted our servers if it had happened a few years earlier - when Britney was at the height of her fame before her career break and kids - but was still surprised at the popularity of it.
Contrast to a year later - there was a Britney upskirt story a few weeks ago and meh. A tiny blip. It’s old news now - I think we even covered it with an “again… yawn” type comment. I think we’ve become jaded after repeatedly seeing her in tiny, bum’n'bits exposing dresses, too small tops/blouses without bras and at times with even less on than that.
It’s been a crazy year from Britney - she started partying with Paris Hilton after splitting from then husband Kevin Federline, then got dumped by Paris, spent just hours in rehab on a couple of occasions before checking out again then shaving her head. Then she went to rehab for a longer stay but it didn’t seem to change her partying and we’ve had nine months of bad hair extensions, bad behaviour rumours and custody disputes. If you’d told me a year ago that Kevin Federline would have custody of their sons, I would have laughed my arse off - now he comes across as the responsible one of the pair.
