For starters, I'd like to take a moment to dedicate the following eulogy to the memory of my ex-fave club, Mike and Willy's -
You gave us nights of dirty dancing,
you gave us walks of shame.
Upon your merry little stage
did we bump and grind,
just trying to get some...
Aw, who am I kidding? As if I'm even capable of mourning at a time like this! I mean, this is the day I've been waiting for my entire life.
If you've been living in a cave or, like, don't have MTV or something, Britney Spears' new flick, Crossroads, opens tonight!
People, this is major. More major than Mandy Moore's A Walk to Remember (which I've only seen, like, three times.) Possibly even more major than Glitter.
I am so going to see it tonight. Tonight, it's just me, Brit and 20 of my girlfriends. I'm not for sure, but here's what I think it's about - Britney and her homegirls go on some kind of a roadtrip, and she starts totally crushing on this total hottie. But the trauma-rama is that she's, like, not a girl, not yet a woman.
Like, that is so deep.
Britney Spears is the bomb. I totally connect with her. And everyone says we look alike, too. I mean, maybe her hair's a little blonder and she's a little taller than me, but that could be just the lighting. So since we're practically long-lost sisters, I'm her most mega hard-core fan.
I mean, even when people started jumping on the Christina Aguilera bandwagon, and the big question was, like, "Are you down with Britney or Christina?" I was always true to Britney.I even switched over from Coke to Pepsi when Britney bagged 'n' tagged her new commercial deal, just show my support.
Which reminds me of this boy I met the other day. Like, he was wearing these cute Vans and 501's, but he had all these freaky tattoos and even worse, was drinking Coke. So of course, I called him out for dissing on Britney. And in between sips of Coke he told me he thought she was, like, sellin' out, layin' down, suckin' up to the man. And I was like "Well, I've got some advice for you, little buddy" and then I, like, made the loser sign on my forehead. Take that, tattoo boy.
Oops! I did it again. I didn't mean to get so carried away about the Brit-babe. I mean, if you're one of those anti-pop, Britney-bashing freaks, I guess there's some other ways to entertain yourself this weekend, too.
There's, like, some band coming to the Tennessee Theatre tonight that has something to do with the Allman Brothers or some old band like that. And there's some banjo dude playing there Saturday night that my friend said was nominated for a Grammy or something.
Or, you could always just go to the mall.
But mark this on your social calendar for real. Teen mega-heartthrob, Aaron Carter, is playing a concert at Thompson Bowling Arena on March 11. He is such a total hottie. I would so do him if he wasn't, like, thirteen.
Well, gotta run. TRL is on and Carson is so totally bootylicious.
Big weekend for teen pop culture like, totally, for sure
