    Britney Kept Us Interested

    It's hard to stay interesting. It takes a combination of talent, vulnerability, stupidity, guts, beauty, brains and determination to keep the public's attention. Britney Spears has that unique combination, and in the 2000s, she was the most talked about celebrity of all, bar none.

Maybe she'll turn it into a song someday.
