Britney Spears’s ‘X Factor’ rider includes Snickers, Diet Coke, bandage dresses

These are some new photos of Britney Spears in Austin, Texas yesterday for The X-Factor tryouts or auditions or whatever. First, let me just say that I think Britney looks really good here – she looks healthy and “together”. She doesn’t have that “overwhelmed” look in her eye like she did during the Fox Upfronts. Hopefully, Us Weekly’s heavily-sourced report (which I covered yesterday) is just a PR piece to lower expectations for Britney so she will meet or exceed what we think she’s capable of.

As for how Britney did in Austin, TMZ reported that she “walked off” at one point during the auditions. It came right after a contestant “butchered” one of her songs, “Hold It Against Me”. Sources say Brit was “upset” and she “did not come back immediately … and four contestants auditioned in front of the remaining judges … and an empty seat.” But some flack for the show told TMZ that Britney was not upset and she was just taking a “short break”. TMZ also has a story that is straight from Simon Cowell’s ass – the source claims Britney has been “articulate, encouraging and even funny at times” with the contestants.

Meanwhile, as I’m sure you’ve already heard, Britney’s X Factor rider has been made public. Yes, not only is Britney getting a $15 million paycheck for this shiz, she’s also making producers stock her dressing room with all manner of goodies. Her rider includes:

*34 Herve Leger dresses
*12 Snickers bars
*10 snack-size bags of Doritos
*six cases of Diet Coke containing 24 cans, which must be replenished every week
*12 vases of magnolia blossoms in her dressing room
*10 pieces of chicken
*four pints of potato salad every week.
*beauty team which includes a personal manicurist, a facialist and a massage therapist

Which sounds about right. Did you think Britney had developed a taste for anything besides fried chicken, ‘tater salad, DOH-ritos and Snickers? And why the 34 bandage dresses? Is she using them as napkins or something? And where, for the love of God, are the HAWT DERGS?!?

    Question: TMZ states that the “insider” told them Britney took only a break, not freaked and walked out, and had missed only 3 or 4 contestants while the show went on.

    Now if you are a judge, aren’t you supposed to watch ALL the contestants and rule with the others?

    • TruthTella says:

      When you’re the judge that’s practically saving the show and have mental problems I guess they cut you some slack to let you keep stable.

      • Maguita says:

        My thoughts exactly!

        Isn’t it important for all 4 judges to be sitting down and making collective decisions on all contenders.

        And just by how it goes on TV, the edited version, 4 contestants could be something between 16 minutes and 45 minutes. Depending if only one was allowed to sing an entire song. Which has happened often on that show last season.

    • TheFactsR says:

      Since WHEN does ANYONE drink 24 cans of cola a day? 6 cases a week!TWO Snicker bars daily!With 2 bags of chips and oh well throw in the FRIED chicken and POTATO salad, no wonder she was fatty watty a fews years back!

      What happens to the bowl of fruit and the protien smoothies and the green salads and the ‘real’ apple chips!

      The dresses I can live with but the food is artery clogging SATURATED FATS.

      • TruthTella says:

        The food and drink probably isn’t just for her…

      • VanessaP. says:

        Are you not familiar with the word entourage?

        Btw, Britney did tweet that she did NOT walk out, she was even pretty funny about it. As always, the press wants to put her in a bad light.

      • Zelda says:

        @Vanessa
        “are you not familiar with the word entourage?”

        Maybe she just didn’t think of it. You didn’t have to phrase it so patronizingly, like TheFactsR is just soooo eye-rollingly stuuuuupid. Why so offended?

      • Tiffany says:

        Vanessa, do you REALLY think her handlers would let her tweet all on her own? She can’t do interviews, she can’t make decisions about what food she eats or the clothes she wears. No way that tweet was written by her.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Compared to other “riders” I’ve seen, this is quite mild. Do remember that oftentimes, her kids and K-Well-Fed accompany her. (I also believe some of this stuff is WEEKLY, not DAILY, which pales in comparison to the one-night show riders of SOME performers.)

        Compared to KP or J-Ho’s “riders” this is NOTHING.

      • ya says:

        huh? she’s never been fat… She’s always had a great body actually, even when she was very ill.

    • Sandra says:

      A GOOD MAKEUP ARTIST AND STYLIST SHOULD BE TOP OD HER LIST ON HER RIDER SHE HAS NO IDEA AND LOOKS LIKE SHIT SHE IS NOT A POP PRINCESS SHE LOOKS AWLFUL.

  2. mel2 says:

    When she performed in our building during her Circus Tour she left cases of Fiji water… I am surprised that’s not on the list.

  3. TruthTella says:

    She looks GORGEOUS, her body is bangin. Things I’ve heard online are that she’s doing pretty well on the show although a bit shy and her “I pass” comment is already a hit haha Go Britney! :D

    • TheFactsR says:

      She better say “I pass” who with her mental problems can “JUDGE” anyone else.

      She is a disaster waiting to melt down again.

      • TruthTella says:

        That’s a really negative thing to say, I was against her doing the show because of the pressure on her but I don’t doubt that she can judge anybody, she’s the biggest selling female artist of the decade, sold over 100,000,000 and has done many iconic performances etc.

      • Cirque28 says:

        People with “mental problems” can still be excellent critics! We don’t write off people who break an arm or get cancer, do we? Mental illness is no different than physical. It’s doesn’t define the whole person.

      • Esther says:

        Plenty of people with mental illness lead normal healthy lives. They don’t treat their illness as a disability that’s keeping them from doing the things they want to do. They are just as capable as any other person.

      • roony says:

        She looks so orange thats why she is about to meltdown she looks like crap these days who is responsible for her bad makeup on X factor auditions all that money NO CLASS!

    • redroses says:

      Yeah. The only harsh thing she said was

      “I feel like you need a new teacher to teach you how to sing”

      http://thecelebritycafe.com/feature/2012/05/britney-spears-walks-x-factor-set-break

      but she definitely looks a lot better compared to before.. and that’s a lot of junk food.

  4. Shaz says:

    Poor Britney Spears. I like her. Always have. She looks older than her years.

    • Esther says:

      She doesn’t seem to take care of her skin she is always tanning. She smokes and I think the dark heavy make up she wears doesn’t help either. Her medication could be aging her too.

      • Eva uk says:

        agreed, she used to be so gorgeous when she was younger and while she is still pretty her lifestyle does seem to have taken its toll on her skin. I’ve wondered for a while now ( and could be totally wrong and I guess I’ll never know) whether during her drug usig days she was on crystal meth? That’s a looks destroyer!

      • Esther says:

        I think she may have done cocaine and probably smoked some weed but I don’t think she was hardcore into drugs like the media made it seem. All her random drug test came back negative I know Sam lufti was putting antipsychotic mess in her drinks and food at the time which would explain why she was so out of it most of the time.

      • Tiffany says:

        You said, “but I don’t think she was hardcore into drugs like the media made it seem”

        The judge in her case called her a “habitual abuser of drugs”. She might be mentally ill, but there is no doubt that she abused drugs for quite a long time as well.

        Her mom said in her book that Britney was first caught with cocaine when she was a teen on an airplane. The judge made his comments when she was in her late 20s. That is a lot of time to abuse drugs.

      • kim says:

        She can have any makeup artist in the world and she chose the worst she looks so dated black is so heavy was it done by a drag queen??

    • Jessie says:

      Really? I think she looks 30. She looks younger than Lady Gaga and she’s at least 5 years older than her.

      • Bella says:

        Betty White looks younger than Lady Gaga. So it’s not really a compliment. Brit looks old. That’s the fact. She is walking embarrassment. She should just go away.

  5. Marjalane says:

    Good Lord. Can you imagine what that trailer smells like? (Or Britney for that matter) How do you manage to be surrounded by all the delicious food on earth in L.A., and STILL be enticed by Doritos and Snickers?

    • Mimi says:

      Yeah and her eyes, she can smile but those eyes just look so….beat.

      • lulu says:

        She has naturally downturned eyes, like Katie Holmes. I think that is what makes her eyes look ‘sad’. At least her eyes don’t look ‘dead’ like Lindsey Lohan’s.

    • Lola says:

      I do not know about you but fried chicken does smell good, unhealthy but good. However I don’t believe they will let her eat all that junk with this new gig. The report was from a very non reliable source but it is a fun read.

      • Rhea says:

        I love fried chicken, too!!! Especially the fresh one!!!Yumm…. :D

      • ol cranky says:

        I’ve been completely plant based for 6 weeks now and I am dreaming about extra crunchy fried chicken on an almost daily basis. If I had to smell it my diet would be completely shot to hell (resistance is futile)

      • the original bellaluna says:

        I make a mean “oven-fried” chicken! Remove the skin; soak in buttermilk; dip in a mix of breadcrumbs and seasonings (to your taste); dip in buttermilk again; dip in seasoned breadcrumbs again (optional); spray a non-stick baking dish with non-stick spray; melt a small amount of butter* (dependent upon how much chicken you’re making, and no trans-fats, like margarine) while pre-heating the oven to 425 degrees; put the chicken in for 15 minutes; remove from oven; pour melted butter SPARINGLY over chicken after reducing heat to 375; return to oven until thoroughly cooked.

        YUM! *If you don’t want to use butter, spray with additional non-stick spray. However, if you read the calorie count on the non-stick spray, you aren’t saving much.

      • Rhea says:

        @the original bellaluna : you’re killing me…. I can even smell the chicken already now…. thanks 4 sharing the recipe :)

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Rhea – Enjoy! :D

  6. Lola says:

    LOL! Girl that chicken girl. I think whoever came up with this lists did some research but not enough,girl only mess with cheetoes. I think she will do fine if she just have fun with the show and I think the whole workout thing was probably plan by Mr stunt himself Simon.

  7. poiup says:

    Her skin’s turned an unhealthy shade compared to how it used to be. I think that’s the smoking :(

  8. heatheradair says:

    aaaaaaaand, one of these days, some member of that team of beauty people will learn how to pencil in her brows.

    my BIGGEST beauty-gripe with Brit over the years —— girlfriend needs to figure out those eyebrows.

    • rundee says:

      So true!!! I always think that especially with her hanging eyes she NEEDS eyebrows, it´s like they intentionally make her look bad.

    • Jilliterate says:

      Ugh, absolutely. I want to send her some brow powder in the mail as a hint. And godamn, when will they stop putting so much heavy eyeliner on her eyes? It’s only weighing her down. Considering she looks tired anyway, the only liner Britney should have on should be for tightlining — I don’t even think she should do her waterline, her eyes don’t need it.

    • Jessie says:

      YES! She’s so pretty but her brows need help.

  9. Liz says:

    How does someone so pampered have so many problems? Waaaahhhhh. What a ridiculous dope.

    • TruthTella says:

      She’s so “pampered” because she’s sacrificed (or been forced to sacrifice) her life so that other people could ride her coat tails and live on her bankroll…

      • Maguita says:

        Not to mention the many murmurs of sexual abuse when she was a young teen. She was a Disney protegee after all!

      • TheOriginalTiffany says:

        She struggles because of the weird pedo crap she was exposed to. Anyone can tell there is more to the story here, just as with her little sis?
        Huh, Dan Schneider?
        I totally buy the abuse, she seems fractured by it beyond normal mental illness, which most can et under control and while she looks ok, she is still doing the weird body language and the dead fish eyes.

        Poor thing, they just damaged this poor girl beyond repair. We could start a pages long list of kids ruined by nick and Disney, couldn’t we?

      • Jackie says:

        ‘normal mental illness’ ‘which most can get under control’…ummm, no.

        can’t say i have ever heard of a ‘normal’ mental illness, and some/most take a lifetime to manage.

      • Tiffany says:

        I don’t know if the “pedo” stuff applies to Disney (that is more Nick).

        I don’t think you can ignore the effects that drug abuse has had on her, in addition to potential mental illness. The judge in her case called her a “habitual abuser of drugs”. She might be mentally ill, but there is no doubt that she abused drugs for quite a long time as well.

        Her mom said in her book that Britney was first caught with cocaine when she was a teen on an airplane. The judge made his comments when she was in her late 20s. That is a lot of time to abuse drugs.

      • UniqJaz says:

        Wait, she was abused? I know about the disney perverts but i didnt know she was exposed to such things. Can someone explain?

      • Maguita says:

        @uniqjazz, I think it was an aunt, or someone from the family, that has publicly said that Britney had been abused when she was 14. It got out during the big hoopla when she was breaking down, and held her son hostage in the bathroom, and the cops had to convince her to let her son go with his father.

        Brit did not have it easy at all. The whole family sold her out and put tremendous pressures on her shoulders at the same time.

        Whatever the situation might have been, personally, I have this feeling that Britney wants out. Wants to live a quiet life with her boys. But I could be wrong, maybe she does want to work and be in the public eye..?

    • Jackie says:

      because she struggles with mental illness.

      • TheOriginalTiffany says:

        Many mental illnesses are much more treatable today. Brit is obviously very affected. We can all see she isn’t normal.
        She has access to the finest docs in the world and this is a years old problem. It it were me, I’d be making my docs do more for me. I just think she’s had a lot of trauma, making her broken beyond repair. IMO. Yes, a lifetime of treatment, but I can’t remember seeing her really controlled at all in years. Usually they find a manageable cocktail that helps within four years, even though they adjust and switch meds out from time to time.
        I know many and have treated lots of people with mental illness. She seems particulararly fractured to me, if she is well enough to judge and tour, you would think she would not look so dead, uncomfortable and odd all the time. She’d be more functioning it seems.
        I think it is sad that with her illness she is made to work so much, it seems so overwhelming. All IMO again, which is what we all express here.

      • Jackie says:

        deleted comment.

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        Look, I just think she seems awfully fragile to be doing this, touring, etc. It seems like she would benefit from a quieter life with her boys.
        For someone under mental strain, she seems pushed into doing a LOT and she never looks happy to do it.
        She looks miserable. I hate hearing stories about her, it and her demeanor make me sad.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        OriginalTiff – I agree. I’ve been saying for years that she was pushed too early in her treatment/recovery into returning to “horse and pony show” circuit (just as Whitney was).

        I haven’t read all the comments, but has anyone bothered to consider that maybe one of the reasons she looks so out of it is that her dosage is off? It can take quite awhile to find a “workable” dosage of one or more meds for a patient. And sometimes what used to work stops working.

        Am I the only one who has thought of that?

      • TheOriginalTiffany says:

        I mentioned that above Bella. There is probably some meds change ups, I saw it, went through some of it and it is common even for things like high blood pressure.

        I just think unless she is very severe, I would have hoped after this many years her docs would have found the correct cocktail.

        She NEVER seems either happy or cognizant really. That is why I Object to her being trotted out for this shiz when she clearly seems out of it, scared, weirded out body language. lots of red flags that no one really cares about Brit and she isn’t capable of fighting for herself. She gives me the sads, no money or fame can make this OK.

  10. Cherry says:

    That list of demands of hers is just delicious. If I was rich and famous, I would totally have them stock my dressing room with snickers bars, doritos and fried chicken, too. And fresh flowers! And clean dresses, so I can change whenever I spill some potato salad on my outfit.

  11. Hubbahun says:

    Dang, I do love a woman that eats :D

  12. Rory says:

    Interesting, given that diet sodas make you gain, especially around the belly area. People with mental health issues shouldn’t be having aspartame, either. No one should for that matter.

    • Jilliterate says:

      Uh, really? Are people still banging on the “aspartame is bad” drum? REALLY?

      Health Canada states:
      “There is no evidence to suggest that the consumption of foods containing this sweetener, according to the provisions of the Food and Drug Regulations and as part of a well-balanced diet, would pose a health hazard to consumers . . . Although aspartame can be safely consumed by most healthy individuals, it has long been recognized that excessive intake of phenylalanine, one of the constituent amino acids of aspartame, can pose a hazard to individuals suffering from an inherited metabolic disorder called phenylketonuria. For this reason, all foods containing aspartame must indicate on the label the presence of phenylalanine.”

      So unless Britney is suffering from phenylketonuria, a CRAPLOAD OF SCIENTISTS have said there is no problem with consuming aspartame. Sorry for going all Bill Nye the Science Guy, but godamn, I am so sick of people putting more stock into things they read in their inbox than things that get published in peer-reviewed journals.

      • Lisa Marconi says:

        So you believe the Canadian government on the aspartame issue? You are living in a fantasy world. Canada follows US FDA recommendations in case you haven’t noticed. Remember FDA-approved Vioxx that killed half a million people?http://sweetremedyfilm.blogspot.com/2012/05/when-half-million-americans-died-and.html

        Many studies with dubious funding sources (Anjinamoto, Searle, Merisont,
        etc.) will attest to the safety of aspartame. Non-industry funded studies
        are found in this link:
        http://sweetremedyfilm.blogspot.com/p/dr-ralph-waltons-compiled-list-of-non.
        html

        Also, here is a link to a pdf of the most recent aspartame cancer study:
        http://tinyurl.com/49j9zun
        And here is an abstract:
        http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17805418

        By the way, Soffritti conducted three long-term studies in recent years and all three studies showed a causal relationship between aspartame and cancer.

        These are peer-reviewed studies, btw, not something I read in my in box.

        Not to mention the documented neurological problems – and by the way, aspartame accretes in the cells over time, meaning even if you don’t notice problems yet, drink enough and eventually you probably will. Good luck.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Speaking from personal experience, aspartame gives me and at least two of my friends wicked-bad migraines. So no matter what ANYONE says, it doesn’t work for me.

        I drink brewed, un-sweetened iced tea or water. The headaches aren’t worth it.

      • Catlady says:

        I have to agree with Lisa and posted something farther down with more links about the dangers of aspartame. It is a very real problem, despite the industry apologists that are working so hard to pull the wool over your eyes while they poison you to death for $$$$.

  13. Zelda says:

    Everyone who thinks she looks good:
    WHAT?

    She needs:
    -a bra
    -a larger dress
    -a longer dress
    -a dress not suited in style and colour to 80′s Streetwalker Barbie
    -A haircolour that cannot be referred to as “egg-yolk blonde”
    -a hairbrush

    She should lose:
    -5lbs of extensions
    -8lbs of makeup
    -10lbs of orange spray tan
    -the dentist who is overbleaching her teeth
    -whatever is making her nails look cheap

    I get that it’s nice for people to see her relatively healthy, but you can say that and still note that she looks like the tackiest girl on the Circus Circus bathroom floor.

    • rundee says:

      +1 too

    • Cirque28 says:

      Her teeth are excessively white. A little bit of dental imperfection is so much more natural looking!

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Almost EVERYONE in H-Wood’s teeth are too white! I understand a MINOR amount of whitening, say for stained teeth or whatever, but put any actor on network TV under a blacklight and tell them to smile, and their teeth will glow purple!

        It’s ridiculous! :b

  14. apsutter says:

    Four pints of potato salad a week?!? Weird. She looks beautiful here but I agree with Shaz, she looks much older than her years. I feel like she has the body of an older woman too. Her arms, chest, skin all remind me of my mother.

  15. TheFactsR says:

    Her smile is so forced, she hates that ugly older man she is with but it is the ONLY way to get out from under “DADDIES” control.

    I would tell them ALL, this is my life, my money and I will do as I dam well please!

    • Lola says:

      Wow! You sound bitter. You do not know this woman or anyone close to her to determine she hates or love someone. Let the woman live her life the best way she can. Yes she seem to be on meds, but hey she is doing the best she can. When will people start to see mental illness as every other illness without the stigma of being ridiculed or called trainwrecks. I do not listen to her music but proud of her for making efforts to better herself even if she is not perfect.

  16. Dana M says:

    Maybe she had to “use the restroom ” (putting it in a nice way) due to all the nasty junk food she eats! LOL At least she eats though…unlike other celebrities.

  17. Jessica says:

    And where, for the love of God, are the HAWT DERGS?!? LOVE IT!!!! LOL

  18. Lilly says:

    Sorry but her body language is really strange on these photos. She doesn’t look comfortable at all.

  19. someone says:

    What’s with those bandage dresses? I have yet to see anyone who actually looks good in one. Christina Aguilera, J Love Hewitt, Kelly Clarkson, Britney….they all look horrible in them. Probably the only one I’ve seen that rocks the bandage dress is Gisele and that’s because she’s so skinny it was baggy on her.

    • TheOriginalTiffany says:

      I think some girls do. Depends on the dress, mine has sleeves and is longer. I’ve had it for years.
      They look better on a woman with a bit of curve.
      I will say that when I wore it to premiere, I got more responses than any other single thing I have worn to premieres and parties for three years.

      Mine is way more covered up, but still sexy, still only worn it once. They got too popular. Thank God all my loubs are classic and not the giant hooves they sell now.

      Celebs ruin everything.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Sometimes, I really envy you! (Does that make me a bad person?)

        Totally agree about the current “hooves” trend – they look like giraffe hooves, and that is NEVER THE LOOK.

      • TheOriginalTiffany says:

        Goodness why? ok, maybe the lifestyle is cool, but no pets, no horses, moving every eight weeks. Still with Austrailia, SoCal again and Puerto Vallarta as future tour stops, I guess I understand.
        If that’s what you are talking about.
        It’s weird going from the bread winning career woman to the traveling stay at home mom, but I get to see the world for free so yeah it’s pretty nice.
        I even get maid and food service, except breakfast. I’m into photography now.
        But, right now I am packing for luggage morning when cirque takes our stuff to the next city. We sent our car, so that was another pack day to fill the back. I repack all the extra stuff Sunday that will last until Boston call on the 5 th, another pack for four people. Pack all Xbox, psp, etc. drive to moms Sunday night late, Monday am drive to Yosemite for three days to see horses one last time, drive home weds, ( oh, separate ranch pack in there), husband has big gig I am part of. Rehearsals for two days, two shows, leave next day for Boston, unpack everything. Not fun AT ALL.

        But it’s a cool life and I am so happy for my children to get to see the world, learn languages, stuff that me as a poor kid never did.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Yeah, I think it’s the “see the world thing” – especially since hubs promised that, but is now looking for his own place (now that I’ve gone from the bread-winning career woman to stay-at-home Mom & we’ve moved 700 miles from all my friends, family, and everything I’ve ever known). Apparently he feels the need to flex his muscles now that he feels he’s got all of the power & money. Never mind that he had not a pot to piss in when we got together 12 years ago (he says that doesn’t matter now) and I supported him through numerous bouts of unemployment and even purchased him a vehicle; not to mention the many CPS investigations my children (from previous marriage) were subjected to by his ex-wife every time we had good news or a bout of good things happen to us. (Apparently that doesn’t matter to him now, either.) Plus, we have not car, so I’m trapped in Podunk Nowhere.

        (The packing – NO – that must suck.)

      • Cirque28 says:

        @Bellaluna: So sorry to hear about your hubs. Living well, my friend, living well…

        Bella, damn your dumb husband for checking out and leaving you way up there! My friend is going through the same thing in North Fork.
        It sucks.
        I got so lucky and got such a peach of a husband, wish I could clone him for you. Or you could stow away in our luggage. I certainly could fit people in there! I wish you the best, may a king appear to be the mate for you as queen:)

        Hey, only 13 bins this time. Nervous breakdown time, goes on the truck in the early AM.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Thank you, Ladies. Supposedly he’s buying me a truck soon (one that I actually want) but that’s only so I have a vehicle when he leaves and since it’s Red-Neck country up here, everyone drives trucks. He may not care about me, but he does care about our toddler being safe.

        No freak-outs, OriginalTiff – you can do it!

  20. Jordan says:

    She doesn’t know what to do with her hands in pics. The ‘just taking a break’ walk out doesn’t bode well, although it could just be a stunt. It seems unprofessional, and it shows what the show thinks her worth as a judge is that they kept on with the next contestants instead of waiting for her return.

  21. Nina says:

    TMZ posted an audio clip of her giving feedback and I was really surprised. I was expecting her to be unable to string any words together coherently but she actually sounded lucid and cute.

    I think she’s going to do fine!

  22. TheOriginalKitten says:

    It just says 10 pieces of chicken, doesn’t say that it’s FRIED right?
    Also, will fug bandage dresses please just go away? Like forever?

    • TheOriginalTiffany says:

      I’m so pissed that my pretty, older bandage dress is overdone by celebs. It was so expensive and like I said I wore it once because now it is such a cliche.

      Argh!

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Hi Tiffany! :)
        I don’t think that they’re all terrible but they are SO common now that they’ve almost replaced the LBD as a staple. I’m just tired of seeing them ya know?

        PS I’m in Boston! C-town. What “show” do you speak of ?

      • TheOriginalTiffany says:

        Really? I’m moving in about ten days. Cirque du soleil’s Totem.
        We should at least do coffee or something. I’m living a few blocks from Fenway.

  23. Franny says:

    What do women have against wearing bras? Come on, your ladies need them!

    • John Wayne Lives says:

      For Sure! Maybe she wouldn’t look so uncomfortable if she was wearing some supportive undergarments ;)

    • Hakura says:

      Unfortunately, all these girls that run around ‘free & braless’ won’t realize how much they need(ed) them until 5-10 years down the road, when ‘perky’ divorces them, & ‘saggy’ scores on the rebound.

      Especially larger chests, like Lilo (who’s already going downhill).

  25. logan says:

    She looks about as sane as a woodpecker continously banging its beak against a steel post. Someday she will be the Bette Davis role in Baby Jane,except in real life. HELP!!!!!

  26. Meanchick says:

    I used to do the riders for celebs dresing rooms and OMG. Some of the things requested would blow me away. They ask for any and everything. Some things I would not have the gall to ask for (condoms/pillows). Most of the time though, the rider is filled with things they may never eat/drink/use. Some want it there just in case and others want it there just because they’re snots who want things they should be bringing with them. I used to love the Leger bandage dresses, but now, I consider them part of a whore’s uniform.

    • TheOriginalTiffany says:

      As far as riders go, many do it for the families and friends. My husband was in Tears for Fears for 16 years and the rider Had candy for all the kids, lots of wine and food plates, as if there would always be a nice reception party. Which there always seemed to be.
      They are mature, normal people though.
      I’ve seen some crazy ones too. Like a million bottles of hard liquor and weird food.

      Hey, also, if one or two of you ever wants to get together in a city we are living in, I’d be happy to get you a last minute seat to our show or come sit backstage and watch the artists back there, which is awesome. I get lonely on tour, be nice to see a few of you in person. Boston, anyone? DC in fall.

      • SashaVice says:

        Let me know if you ever make it to Denver! :)

      • phlyfiremama says:

        “Pale Shelter” is one of my all time favorite albums. LOVE love love Tears for Fears~

      • the original bellaluna says:

        I’m about 2 – 3 hours away from San Fran (I think I missed you – Totem) and/or Sacramento; 2 from Santa Rosa. (I used to live in northern San Diego county.)

        I think the one that really killed me was J-Ho, with all of her billions of white candles and white flowers. (I’m pretty sure that was her.)

      • TheOriginalTiffany says:

        I think it was jho too, everything white and bathed in candlelight.
        Too funny, living in La Jolla now, just got done doing San jose and San Francisco. Was great to be in Ca again. Not due back until 12/13. Miami in winter then NY in spring should be cool. Next dec in Calgary? Fearing it already!

        We’ve always loved TFF, great songs and really awesome guys. that’s why we did Christmas in Bath, England last year when we were London based. Everyone is like family.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Well, OTiff, please let me know when/if you’re going to be in my area – I’d love to meet up! I loved La Jolla, Del Mar, and Solana Beach (I used to live in Solana Beach & my daughter danced every year at the Del Mar Fair with her dance troupe).

        Loved TFF, saw them in concert (and Depeche Mode too) in HS and just adored them!

      • Hakura says:

        Wow. That sounds amazing! (If that was an open invite, as opposed to just directed as someone specific xD), I live in Baltimore, so DC is pretty close. =3

      • TheOriginalTiffany says:

        No, it’s open as long as we aren’t sold out. We did Baltimore last spring, but DC is really close. I think we get there in September.

        Now it’s weird, you guys can actually know who I really am, I mean, I am me, but I’m pretty traceable through hubby now. Just keep my insider gossip name free please. It’s a small entertainment world.

        Getting ready for the humidity again:)
        Oh Bella, they set up the tent at the fairgrounds at del mar. If only we were staying all summer. Used to work near Poway. Gorgeous in Solana, love it all, Cali beach girl no want to goooooooo.

      • maggs says:

        Pittsburgh?

      • the original bellaluna says:

        OriginalTiff – NEVER, EVER would I breathe a word! Yes, this Cali beach girl is missing her beach – we live by the lake, but it’s polluted with mercury; the nearest beach is Fort Bragg.

        It would be so fun to meet for real! If it happens with any of us, please let us know! :D

      • TheOriginalTiffany says:

        I wish I had said something before but I didn’t want to be weird or anything.
        We did Pittsburgh last year, Charlotte, Baltimore, Montreal, Toronto, SF and London and San Diego.
        So yeah from now until the end of feb it goes Boston, DC, Atlanta, Miami,and after is ny, Philly, Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary, SoCal again. Argh. That’s if there are no changes, which there always are. I have learned to live only on the now right now.
        It’s kind of freeing in a way. And no freak outs, it all went this morning. I love the day after luggage day. We all do. That’s the cool part, we get a built in family of 160 and several good friends that you constantly travel with.
        Anyway, I’ll shout out when I get to new places and you all can let me know. Fun to see some of you in person:)

      • Hakura says:

        Oh no, definitely would never violate your privacy. (That would be rude on it’s own, let alone after having the chance to meet >.<) It really would be fun!

        My mom & I have been dying to see one of the shows over the last few years, but it just never panned out, for some reason. (Even with it being in Baltimore, like you mentioned). Kept meaning to, but time gets away from us, then we missed it.

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        @Hakura, we don’t have a ton of friends in DC, so I don’t think we will exceed our last minutes tickets. I just need to go with you and maybe we do a matinee because they don’t sell as well I know there are always openings.

        Sitting backstage is amazing and as long as there are only one of you I can do that. Some rules to follow, but you get to see everyone work out, change, practice, fool around, etc.

        When I get to the cities, I’ll let you all know and maybe we can privately exchange email or FB. Boston’s premiere is like the 10th of June.

      • Hakura says:

        @TheOriginalTiffany – Thank you so much! If circumstances permit, you can count me in. =) It’s very kind of you to make that offer, I know it would be really fun.

        But also, it’s all-to-easy to forget that people who talk/comment online… Are real people. I’ve made a few good friends online from different states, & eventually met them in person. It was *great*, so I’m sure meeting you would be a great experience as well!

  27. phlyfiremama says:

    She looks horrible. She looks terrified, unsure of herself, with a frozen “deer in the headlights” look. This will not end well for this poor girl~and the people to blame are her puppeteers, who make the decisions for her and who should just. let. her. get. better. Some “conservatorship” skills they are displaying…

  28. Kate Kack says:

    God she is beyond white trash!

  29. Esther says:

    There is audio of her judging yesterday and people were saying she did well. I didn’t listen though so I can’t really say a lot were saying she was her usual nice self. A lot of that food isn’t just for her but all the people that work for a lot of celebs have request for large amounts of foods and other things Britney is no different. Why this is even being made a big deal I have no idea.

  30. Mean Hannah says:

    That’s a bad rider, mixing daily and weekly quantities, so I call BS on this. At Britney’s star level, her rider will never just say 10 pieces of chicken – it would say white or dark meat, fried, grilled, etc.

  31. little-red says:

    No beauty entourage can undo the damage that comes from a diet like that.

  32. Embee says:

    She’s loooking very like Pamela Anderson these days.

  33. lolas says:

    I think she looks rough. Not surprised.

  34. lil ole me says:

    This is getting to good to be true. Why does she always pose with her arms firmly to her sides like a toddler?

  35. Jover says:

    Yes white trash and i guess actually being able to speak in complete intelligible sentences and having some actual knowledge of music are irrelevant. Oh, this is another silly singing show, and for the love of GOd, why is Simon Cowell treated like he is a world class genius at musical development, isn’t he really just a rich smarmy huckster and promoter from the bits and pieces i’ve read here and elsewhere?

  36. Human B. says:

    Sometimes, girls have to go to the restroom. ever heard about it?

    i dont care about brit but this is stupid. its not allowd to be a human ??
    scary

    • Jordan says:

      Professionals, even women, don’t just jump up to go to the restroom, whenever they feel like it; they wait for breaks that everyone can take. And obviously you do care about ‘Brit’ and there’s nothing wrong with that. I think there is concern whether she is prepared to do this job. I mean, holding someone’s future in her hands in addition to trying to hold herself together under the spotlight, is a lot of pressure to put on someone who has conservators that make most of her decisions for her.

  37. John Wayne Lives says:

    I have sympathy for the girl, because she seems fragile but sweet and you wanna pull for her and see her succeed. But at the same time, she’s just so white trash it makes me kinda laugh.

  38. Geez says:

    I rather have Britney saying the truth about what she eats than spoon fed a load of crap from celebrities who quote”eat healthy”quote. Britney can do whatever she wants and eat what she wants. She has access. Let her be. She is definitely fragile, the criticism isn’t helping her.

  41. the original bellaluna says:

    I re-iterate what I said above: Am I the only one who wonders about her med dosages? Are they “correct” for her needs? Are they off? Effectiveness of meds changes over time, and in combination with other meds; are hers being monitored regularly? Do they need adjusting? Does anyone on her “team” care?

  42. Evie says:

    Her body looks awesome. Too bad her face looks so rough. She looks older than her 30 years.

  43. blackblackblack says:

    People seriously twist everything about her life into something gross. Working celebrities have food in their dressing rooms, this exact kind of food, and it’s for their team, family, visitors, etc. She likely did not even select most of it. Hop off of her already.

  44. Hakura says:

    She’s a beautiful woman, but just look at the strange, rigid way she’s standing with her arms pressed down against her sides…Her arms & shoulders are *so* tense.

    She reminds me of one of those ‘nutcracker’ soldiers lining the path to the ‘mall Santa’. I’d never pick her apart, but that just isn’t normal.

  45. Catlady says:

    Britney’s people need to do some research and get her off the Diet Coke and anything else that contains artifical sweeteners like aspartame and splenda. They are poison and have numerous reported side effects. I have personal experience with Aspartame causing me to have severe. debilitating depression. Literally days after giving up a years long habit of daily consumption of large quantities of Diet Mountain Dew after I became aware of how bad it is for you I went from barely being able to function to becoming active and feeling better than I had in years. It was the only thing I changed and I know that getting rid of the aspartame was what made me feel better! The story of how it was approved is infuriating and it should never have been approved for human consumption! See http://www.wnho.net/history_of_aspartame.htm and also listen to the coast to coast show at http://youtu.be/Mx81r_eblFw The link is for Part 1 but the other 3 parts are easily found on the same account. Britney’s behaviors could easily be attributed in part or all to a large consumption of Aspartame via Diet Coke.

  46. bigorexia says:

    Love her. Always have. Always will. She is such a sweet and lovely person. :)

  47. Snowflake says:

    I think people are reading way too much into her pictures. also just b/c you have to take medications, that does not mean you are going to go off your rocker at any moment. geez people! she’s no probs in years, i think she should be given a chance to spread her wings.

    • Hakura says:

      As one of the many among us who take medications for a major depression/anxiety/mood disorder, I can say that most of us definitely don’t think Britney is ‘off her rocker’.

      We know someone with these issues can be a functioning member of society. She just gives off such strange body language that we can’t help but be concerned. Most, if not all, who have mentioned it only do so because they *do* care.

      It just all seems so hard on her, or like it’s not where she wants to be.

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        THIS! My whole point.
        I dealt with major depression a few years back, but Brit , while not off her rocker, is so clearly miserable.
        Pictures don’t lie and she consistently displays he same awkward, scared, uncomfortable, sad vibes.
        We feel for her, I think at least most do. How could you not.
        The Cracken she ain’t.

      • Hakura says:

        @TheOriginalTiffany – The only times I ever feel sorry for the cracken are when her God-awful parents end up on the news.

        Poor kid didn’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell of turning out well-adjusted. Not that it excuses most of what she’s done, but still, it explains why. I’m TOTALLY not defending her, nooooo.

  48. Kim says:

    Herve Leger bandage dresses are so over!

  49. chocolate cup cake says:

    SHE SHOULD BE ASKING FOR A PROFESSIONAL HAIR AND MAKEUP ARTIST FOR STARTERS SHE LOOKS LIKE A MAN IN DRAG. SHE CAN USE THE BANDAGE DRESS TO COVER HER HEAD. HER PEOPLE HAVE NO IDEA THEY MAKE HER LOOK VERY CHEAP HOW CAN THEY DO THAT TO HER?
