Chip: "There's a track here called "If You Seek Amy." Sound it out and it sounds like "F.U.C.K Me." The result is that Britney is going to have young girls all across the country singing 'fuck me,'and I believe she should be arrested for such subversiveness. She's a mother of two, for goodness sake!"
Richard: "The song is basically Britney's acknowledgement that her popularity, on some level, is based entirely on the fact that everyone wants to sleep with her. Notice also the repeated simile in the title track "Circus": "I'm like a performer." She's not a performer; she's like a performer. Britney is admitting her own insignificance here, but in so doing she's offering a trenchant commentary on contemporary celebrity. This album will ultimately make her more important than Madonna."
Chuck Klosterman: "Britney smells excellent. She smells like fruit (kiwi in particular)." (interview, "Southern Fried Sex Kitten.").
Yahoo has released the results for the top ten most popular internet searches of the year and guess who tops the list? Britney Spears. The list also includes "World Wrestling Federation," Barack Obama, Jessica Alba, Angelina Jolie, Lindsey Lohan, and an on-line game called "Runescape."
Chip: "Largely, this list confirms my belief that the internet is the lair of horny geeks who spend their days searching for nude celebrity pictures and playing fantasy games about elves and dragons. My guess is that most of the searches for Britney were attempts to find that famous panties-less paparrazi photo and also included the word "pussy."
Richard: "My guess is that most of the people who searched for the World Wrestling Federation were also running the searches for Obama in an attempt to prove he was a Muslim. However, I'm a little surprised that wrestling fans know how to use the internet."
A new list in Entertainment Weekly picks the George Clooney/Jennifer Lopez thriller Out of Sight as the sexiest movie ever made: "Soderbergh flashes forward from their flirtatious conversation to scenes of the lovemaking that results as soon as they leave the bar: The talk and the act exist simultaneously, voluptuously" (EW).
Chip: "The film has no significant nudity, which immediately disqualifies it, in my opinion. Also, a truly sexy film is not going to artsily cut back and forth between talking and sex. A truly sexy film just shows us the business."
Richard: "The sexiest film ever made is Nailin' Paylin."
