  1. Speaking of Brian - what happened to him? Do we know if he’s still in her life? I understand he despises the limelight and I honestly can’t blame him (especially when your sibling is the princess of pop herself), but I’m curious because I forgot about him. Britney seemed to love being around her niece/his daughter so much. Lexi, was it?
  2. I know. 😂😂😂 The last guy was a dick, but that’s expected from an “artsy fartsy” person. I worked for an art startup and the arrogance of that world is unbelievable.
  3. I found the art therapist’s reading of the painting very interesting ... Source: https://www.dazeddigital.com/art-photography/article/47524/1/britney-spears-art-painting-exhibition-analysed-art-experts “This person isn’t depressed in my view and seems quite energised. There are four flowers, so there’s some sort of relationship going on, perhaps a family. There’s a little, fifth flower outside, which is a mystery, it’s unformed, as though something is coming in and the other flowers don’t seem aware of it. Whatever’s coming in is not on the earth, it’s perhaps just a concept or a thought, but it’s not rooted. It could be a new idea, a new project, that is not in place yet – or the other group of flowers could be rejecting whatever that little flower means, throwing it out.“
  4. I honest to god ship her and Sam so hard, I do hope they work. That being said, if she’s over the relationship, she should get out. It’d be a disservice to herself and him to continue it. My own feelings on it are that Sam makes her happy and he genuinely loves and supports her. He doesn’t seem manipulative or like he’s using her for personal gain (like K. Fed in the past). I don’t think I’ve liked any of her boyfriends until Sam tbh. That all being said, I do think Sam is not book smart. 🤷🏾‍♀️ I’m not going to call him dumb because he’s made it pretty far in life! But I guess stupid people can also fail upwards.
  5. Bought this morning! Well, when they finally got it working lol. I'm pumped for the last two. Actually, I'm curious if they'll do Glory since that is already available on vinyl.
  6. Our baby's an artist! 🙌🏾 Source: https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-51105156 Britney Spears lands first art exhibition 5 hours ago US pop star Britney Spears will have her artwork displayed at a gallery in France from this Saturday. Her debut exhibition, Sometimes You Just Gotta Play!!!!!!, will take up residence at the Galerie Sympa in the town of Figeac in south-west France. The title is taken from an Instagram post made by the singer several years ago, which showed her painting outside. The exhibition will mark the 21st birthday of her big-selling debut album ... Baby One More Time. According to the gallery, the 38-year-old's first public art show will run "till the world ends," - a reference to her 2011 track of the same name. Her flower painting, which was used to promote the show, was donated to a Las Vegas charity auction in 2017, helping the victims of the Root 91 Harvest music festival shooting. A year ago, the performer scrapped her Las Vegas residency and announced she was taking an "indefinite" break from music, to focus on her father Jamie's recovery from a life-threatening illness. Her dad served as her conservator for 11 years - meaning he was in charge of Spears' finances because of her ill-health - after Spears was placed in psychiatric care back in 2008. Last year, he was legally relieved of his duties for "personal health reasons". The singer reassured fans over her own wellbeing, following internet speculation that she was being held at a mental health facility against her will. This sparked the #FreeBritney campaign; a hashtag which appears again, ironically, in the promo for the new art show. In an Instagram video in April, she rejected the theories, saying "all is well" and that she would "be back very soon". "My family has been going through a lot of stress and anxiety recently, so I just needed time to deal," she added. Spears is not the first musician to channel her creativity into physical artwork. The Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood is well known for moving seamlessly from guitar licks to licks of paint. The 72-year-old rocker placed his paintings on display once again at a pop-up gallery in London just before Christmas. A few years earlier, the former art student described his painting Sad Guitar - which featured in his book Ronnie Wood: Artist - to BBC Radio 4's Today programme as a combination of his two greatest loves, music and art. "It's very influenced by the guitars of Georges Braque and Picasso. Those artists lay heavy with me as influences," he said. From The Rolling Stones to The Stone Roses - fellow guitar wizard John Squire's latest exhibition, Disinformation, featured at Damien Hirst's Newport Street Gallery, also in the capital, last year. The large-scale oil paintings were based on photographs taken by the artist or found online and then put through a Snapchat filter that the 1995 Turner Prize winner had told Squire about. The 57-year-old, who was responsible for the Manchester band's signature Jackson Pollock-inspired paint splash artwork, told The Guardian: "I don't think I'm a very good guitar player - or painter." We'll agree to disagree on that one, John. Last but not least, without blowing his own trumpet, it's fair to say seminal US jazz musician Miles Davis produced some pretty impressive artwork too, late on in his career. Davis, famed for trailblazing records like Bitches Brew, only began painting in his mid-50s during a break from touring, but soon threw himself fully into it. "It's like therapy for me, and keeps my mind occupied with something positive when I'm not playing music," he wrote in his self-titled autobiography in 1989. His influences ranged from Picasso to Basquiat, via African tribal artwork. Miles Davis's art hobby soon turned into a serious passion. After his death in 1991, at the age of 65, Davis's estate took his paintings on the road, and in 2013, Miles Davis: The Collected Artwork was published. Look out for the best of Britney's artwork in book form in time for Christmas 2020 (maybe, baby).
  7. Yeah, I am a big advocate of not "punching down." I'm pretty liberal when it comes to humor, but there's not much joy in poking fun at people dealing with mental issues, poverty, drug abuse, etc. It's like it's too easy, any of us could do that. That's not what makes a good comedian (or ally) imo. But poking fun at people like Jeff Bezos or Trump - fuck those guys, have at it. Let them cry about it in their ivory towers.
  8. Source: https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/craig-ferguson-worried-hed-be-fired-for-refusing-make-fun-of-britney-spears-014613710.html I remember that clip from this episode. He was one of the few people to take that stand, and good on him for it. The media was particularly cruel to girls like Miss Spears (a la Lindsay Lohan, the Hilton sisters, the Duff girls, etc.). Craig Ferguson worried he’d be fired for refusing to make fun of Britney Spears: ‘I thought it was my Jerry Maguire moment’ Lyndsey Parker Editor-in-Chief, Music Yahoo Music December 22, 2019 During his nine-year stint on CBS’s The Late Late Show, comedian Craig Ferguson, like most late-night talk show hosts, frequently poked fun at tabloid celebrities during his opening monologues. But there was one time when he decided he didn’t want to cross that line, so he took a stand, and he took a risk — even though he knew he might lose his job. “I was convinced at the time that I was going to get fired for it. I thought it was my ‘Jerry Maguire moment,’” he confesses now. It was Feb. 19, 2007, the Monday of Presidents’ Day weekend. Three days earlier, troubled pop star Britney Spears (who earlier that month had entered Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Centre rehab facility in Antigua, only to check herself out after just one day) had made explosive national news by shaving her head at a hair salon in Tarzana, Calif. It was an especially cruel media era — TMZ had launched two years prior, and nasty gossip bloggers like Perez Hilton were racking up millions of pageviews reporting on Spears’s doomed K.Fed marriage, various supposed fashion/parenting/hygiene fails, and increasingly erratic behavior. And the media was especially unempathetic to Spears that weekend. But Ferguson refused to pile on. Speaking to Yahoo Entertainment/SiriusXM Volume while promoting his new docuseries, Hobo Fabulous, Ferguson recalls, “I went in to work Monday morning, and everybody had the [Britney] jokes written up. And I was like, ‘No. I'm not doing it.’ And I didn't. I was genuinely upset, and I went with my gut. … It just struck me as the right thing to do in the moment.” Ferguson insists that he “didn't have an agenda” and “wasn't setting forth a manifesto” that night. But he explains that, as a recovering alcoholic who’d experienced his own lost weekends and rock-bottom moments, the news of Spears’s meltdown hit close to home for him. “When I saw what happened to her that weekend, that happened to coincide with my own 15 years sobriety [anniversary] — that same weekend,” he says. “And I thought, ‘I don't know what I want to do on the show, but I'm f***ing sure I don't want to do this.’” Instead, Ferguson went onstage and — amid the audience’s nervous and sometimes downright inappropriate laughter — he spoke from the heart. “Tonight, no Britney Spears jokes,” he announced. And for the next 12 minutes, he instead shared stories of his own addiction and recovery while also expressing concern for Spears, who was 25 years old at the time. “The thing is, you can embarrass somebody to death,” he explained that night, addressing the dangers of the media’s tendency to ridicule unstable, at-risk celebrities. “I'm starting to feel uncomfortable about making fun of these people. Funny comedy should have a certain amount of joy in it. It should be about us attacking the powerful people, attacking the politicians and the Trumps and the blowhards. …We shouldn't be attacking the vulnerable people. … What [Spears is] going through reminds me of what I was doing. It's an anniversary; you start to think about it. It reminds me of where I was 15 years ago, when I was living like that. Now, I'm not saying Britney Spears as an alcoholic; I don't know if she's an alcoholic or not. But she clearly needs help.” Spears thankfully rebounded from her difficult 2007, although she still struggles with being in the public eye and just last week posted a plea on Instagram for online trolls to stop saying “the meanest things.” As for Ferguson, he obviously did not get fired for his candor, and he went on to host The Late Late Show for another seven years. And while he says he “never heard directly from Miss Spears” after his speech, he stresses, “That was not necessary. I wasn't looking for that.” However, he does have a feeling that she heard what he said, and that she may have thanked him in her own subtle way. “I did want to use one of her songs [“Oops!...I Did It Again”] in a standup special, and when I requested it, everyone was saying there's no way that song was going to clear,” he says with a chuckle. “I asked if I could use it in a standup special, and I got it for nothing. That's a very expensive song to use. So I'm extremely grateful that she let me do that.” The above interview is taken from Craig Ferguson’s appearance on the SiriusXM show “Volume West.” Audio of this conversation is available on demand via the SiriusXM app.
  9. And the ads! I don’t know if it’s just for me, but I get bombarded by ads in Exhale even when I’m just trying to read an article I get 4 or 5 pop ups, not to mention the ads sprinkled all throughout the piece.
  10. I agree. There’s barely any new posts week to week so I expect the whole thing to fall apart now.
  11. Weird ... I'll delete the copy-paste in the post and just leave the link, for anyone who's on mobile!
  12. Sooo y'all gonna update us on what this means, if anything, for the few of us stranglers left? SOURCE: https://www.wonderwall.com/celebrity/jamie-spears-gets-injunction-against-free-britney-blogger-3021877.article JAMIE SPEARS GETS AN INJUNCTION AGAINST 'FREE BRITNEY' BLOGGER By Wonderwall.com Editors 11:31am PST, Dec 21, 2019 The fansite AbsoluteBritney.com, known for its conspiracy theory-esque posts and comments about Britney Spears' long-running conservatorship, hasn't posted a new update since September. That may be because the singer's father, Jamie Spears, got an injunction against the blog's creator, Anthony Elia, prohibiting him from posting defamatory remarks about the aims of those managing the conservatorship, including Jamie, who stepped down temporarily but is set to take over as lead conservator again in January. TMZ reports a judge has ordered Elia to cease and desist making statements that imply the conservatorship is "harming" the 38-year-old singer, as he did earlier this year when he suggested Britney's team was manipulating her Instagram to make it appear as if the conservatorship is necessary, the implication being that it's not. Those posts fueled and were fueled by the "Free Britney" movement, with scores of the singer's Instagram followers urging Britney to assert her freedom and independence, as she did in a post in September. At one point, Elia called the conservators' treatment of the singer a "human rights violation," according to TMZ. The website also reports Jamie was especially incensed by the fact Elia said he was basing his claims about the conservators' motives on a "gut feeling." Larry Stein, an attorney for Jamie, successfully argued the remarks were defamatory, citing the death threats those involved with the conservatorship have received as a result of the blog. Britney asked the court this past spring to free her from the constraints of the conservatorship. She's been on a musical hiatus of sorts since last January, when she announced she needed personal time to process her father's failing health. She later sought help at an inpatient treatment program. She was rumored to have told the judge handling her conservatorship case that her father forced her to go to the treatment center, although TMZ has cited laws that seem to show that would be illegal. The conservatorship, meanwhile, has been in place since 2008. According to a new report from L.A. Magazine, Britney shells out more than $1 million a year in legal fees to the conservatorship "and other fees." Among those costs is $15,000 a month that goes to an attorney Britney was not allowed to choose.
  13. I know, they’re all in their feelings from getting called out lol. He’s right tho - they’re two faced. And if her posts bother them so much, I don’t understand why they keep coming back.
  14. People are so fucking mean. I hope she doesn’t stop sharing, I like these videos. They’re fun and lighthearted!
