Remember back in the old days (the late 90s) when you'd hear about some celebrity photos that were coming out in a magazine in a month or so and then you'd have to....oh, I don't know...wait a few weeks for said magazine to come out on the newsstand?
Not any more!
Welcome to the information age, when you can hear a story on the news about Britney Spears' cover shoot for Harper's
and within ten minutes see all the pictures on-line. In fact, the leaked cover held the top two most forwarded photo spots in Yahoo! Photos yesterday. (Now it's just three of the top ten). Looking at it, I can't imagine why it would be so popular (that last part was sarcasm btw).
Of course, comparisons are running wild between this and the infamous Demi Moore cover of a few years ago (back when we had to go to the silly newsstand or bookstore to find the magazine, not just log onto the information super highway). If you're interested in the rest of the photo spread, it can be found here
, though I'd warn you it's an NSFW (not safe for work).
So, here's the thing with this. Seems that last week Britney was complaining that the media just won't leave her alone to live her life. And you know, I kind of almost felt some sympathy for her. But then, here she is this week courting public attention and the celebrity gossip circuit. It does make me wonder how long until she starts whining again about having no privacy? Britney--you can't have it both ways.
Though we have to admit the real loser in her posing nekkid is all those "celebrity web sites" that have PhotoShopped images of Britney's head onto other bodies. Or maybe not....
