Britney Spears Shaved Her Damned Fool Head, Y'all

Now, I don't usually get into the celebrity stuff, but this is pretty whack.

While watching the Grammy Awards last Sunday, I couldn't help but wonder if Britney wasn't throwing subliminal daggers at her former Mouseketeers, Justin and Christina. At least she took matters into her own hand, and sheared her damned self. The former teen queen has ingested one too many Flirtinis, if you ask me. Either that, or she's enlisting, since judging by her performance in "Crossroads," I doubt she's preparing for a film role.

Speaking of Flirtinis, they're quite good if you mix them with a little love and patience.

The Flirtini

In a pint glass, muddle together well:

2 good chunks of fresh pineapple
1/2 ounce Cointreau

Add one level bar scoop of ice

1/2 ounce Grey Goose Vodka
(Squeeze any remaining pineapple juice from your cutting board into mixture before shaking, it adds a nice foamy effervescence upon shaking)

Shake mixture well, and strain into a large martini glass
Using a bar spoon, float Champagne over mixture until just below the rim. Garnish with a dropped stemless cherry.

I lift my Flirtini to the fallen starlets who occupy the imagination of a vapid nation, and her evening newscasts. Here's a toast to the interesting banal, cynical and weird times in which we live. Cheers!

She still lives with her mom outside the city
Down that street about a half a mile
And all her friends tell her she's so pretty
But she'd be a whole lot prettier if she smiled once in a while
'Cause even her smile looks like a frown
She's seen her share of devils in this angel town
But, everything's gonna be all right
Rockabye, rockabye
Everything's gonna be all right
Rockabye, rockabye, rockabye
