The Reason Everyone's Talking About Brit
TMZ grabbed a close-up shot of Britney Spears' grocery list, and now everyone's talking about what Spears does when she goes out on errands.
Here's the difference between Britney Spears and you: You make out a grocery list and even the people who are going to be eating the food on it barely care. Britney Spears' grocery list, now, everyone wants to see it.
Why? Because it's so shocking. Shockingly normal, that is.
The kind of fancy-schmancy items we'd associate with a big, rich superstar, oh, maybe Evian, out-of-season raspberries and Veuve Clicquot, are totally absent!
Instead, Spears went to a regular old supermarket in Los Angeles to buy ginger ale, ham, orange juice, 2 percent milk, bread and chicken.
Nods to her two sons included a notation to get Lunchables and Smart popcorn. Britney, do you mean cheesy Smartfood? Or Orville Redenbacher's SmartPop microwave popcorn? Could you be more exact, please, when making out your grocery list that you didn't realize would be papped?
TMZ notes that Spears was also clad in "her best Kate Gosselin soccer mom chic," in gray sweatpants and a hoodie.
Don't stars usually have people to pick things up for them? And then other people to cook said things? Or is Spears, who generally makes headlines for wacky antics instead of surprising normalcy, actually picking up items that she plans to fix for her family with her own two (expensively well-groomed) little hands?
"I've made the very difficult decision not to return for another season. I had an incredible time doing the show and I love the other judges and I am so proud of my teens but it's time for me to get back in the studio," Spears said.
Will you miss watching Spears on The X Factor? Do you judge her purchase of Lunchables just a tad?
