Is there anything left to say regarding Britney Spears?
I missed her performance last night –I honestly forgot about it, but I think my subconscious mind was also hard at work, trying to let me watch when it didn’t feel so raw and so very live.
Instead I spent my Sunday evening listening to Monsieur Meow groan about how Roger Federer is too good, and then watching Rev. Mom’s favorite drivel– "Rock of Love" with all its bloated badness– and then watched a rerun of "The Girls Next Door" and five excruciating minutes of the worst show ever conceived: "Sunset Tan".
"Sunset Tan" is past the point of dumb and therefore pretty much unwatchable, unlike the other shows which at least have some sort of fun situations, celebrities that aren’t just incidental, and actual human interest –to a degree. Whoever thought that it would be exciting to watch stuck-up tanorexics working at a tanning salon day in and day out is a moron and needs to have some sort of existential crisis, because it’s just not right to subject ANYONE to watch a show that is really, literally, the human equivalent of watching Mystic Tan dry.
The Olly girls make Kendra Wilkinson sound like an empowered feminist — or maybe that’s a stretch, because Kendra is still abysmally dumb; although if these two camps were to rumble, I’d totally root for Kendra because her brand of dumb at least has some introspection.
(i.e. She knows she’s actually quite dumb)
Seriously, I’m surprised the Olly girls can keep breathing without having to be reminded of it. And all the tans the employees of the show tout are so hideous, it’s painful to watch them at times. The whole staff looks a little like burn victims in several shades of horrible, parading around like orange ghosts whose only mission in life is to haunt those who still have unstimulated melanocytes and unsettle them with snobbishness until they enlist in that disgusting army of skin-undead.
Can you tell I don’t really like this show despite having watched more than ten minutes (and sadly more than once)?
Back to Britney: why even focus on it?
I tried to root for her. She let me down– nay, all of America and the world at large down.
She’s had so many chances to redeem herself, but she throws all her chances away. Is there anything left?
