Britney Spears files for divorce from husband Kevin Federline. Spears, rocketed to fame in 1998 at the age of 16 by her debut single Hit Me Baby One More Time, married backup dancer Kevin Federline in September of 2004, scarcely nine months after her first abortive Las Vegasmarriage to childhood friend Jason Alexander. After two children (and one sculpture), Britney graciously introduced her husband at the recent Teen Choice awards where Kevin played a song from his new album. It looked like nothing could stop those two lovebirds. But after a recent Letterman appearance with a hot recently pregnant Britney showed up not wearing her rings, the truth finally came out. The dream is over.

I think it fitting that she re-marry the childhood friend that she was married to for 72 hours or whatever. I got the feeling from the very beginning that she was "forced" out of that marriage by her managers and publicists.

Of course, now she's damaged goods, so that wholesome down-home boy may not have her now.

Damaged Goods. God, wouldn't that be a great title for her next album? Her wearing a skimpy UPS type outfit with a bunch of crushed and torn boxes all around her?

So let's see here, you start out as a backup dancer for one of the hottest girls on the planet, she falls for whatever lame ass gimick you've thought of and proceeds to fall in love with your no talent ass. You then exploit it enough so that you'll get paid to sit on your ass all day and do nothing, but you're not finished, you're an artist. So you wrangle out a cd and an image, garnering attention amoung the pre-teens and stay at home moms that cling to ET, Access Hollywood, and the Insider to feel a little less sad about their lives. Unfortunetly no amount of studio magic that your wife used could ever make you a star. After popping out the two kids she wanted from you she left you with her prenup still intact. Now you can crawl back to obsecurity, pick up the pieces of your last family and see if they need another contestent on the Surreal Life.

You're a blip on the pop culture timeline, a joke people tell each other at parties all the while shouting your 30-second catchphrase... POPOZAO!

Brownpau was really the star of this. He came up with the idea and got the initial ball rolling. Fandango_matt was the first person to announce this split to the internets, from what I know. He knew about it before tmz I believe. My only contribution was the bad grammer, the statue, and a few things at the end. Hell, even thepinksuperhero helped in creating this - she told me about brit's appearance on letterman.

So it was a group effort.

A sobering thought.

Federline was born in '78. He fathered his first child in 2002 at age 22. He has fathered three other children, in 2004, 2005 and 2006. He is now 28. Assuming he lives to be 50, if he continues breeding at the current rate, he will produce as many as 18 children by 2028.

So, in summary, by 2050, at least 22 Federline offspring but no more fish.

rob511: In possibly related news, Bob "V." Dole is expected to serve divorce papers to the Senator.

Wha? Is this a joke I'm not getting?

Spears is waiving her right to spousal support and is asking the judge to make each party pay their own attorney's fees.

OK, ok, this is a crap story, but really...

He seems stupid enough to fuck up his free ride for a one night stand.

There were rumors of him hanging out with trashy hoes, strippers in Vegas, etc. Even if he didn't cheap, he ruined his marriage to a rich, hot woman who wantet to live in a big mansion with him and make babies. How stupid can you be? It's only downhill from here, K-Fed.

He was married to a 'trashy hoe' (fred durst?), and I'm sure there are strippers in vegas who would be offended by your comparison.

She denied the Fred Durst thing. Sort of.

The thing that amazes me about this is the level of interest these people generate. I'm not saying that in a "omg, if you care about this you should just shoot yourself now" way, I am just astounded by it, my own interest included. People writing and recording songs about her and her silver pants? Hundreds of comments on MeFi of all places on a divorce announcement that no one except for K-Fed himself is actually surprised about? Ongoing, and ongoing, and ONGOING coverage in People magazine about the timeline of the marriage and divorce? Seriously, I wonder why we're so fascinated by this. Someone should do a research project.

Amusing anecdote: A friend of a friend works as a piercer on one of the Hawaiian islands. Back when she was still doing the virginal-good-girl thing, she came into his shop to get her belly button pierced.

He did the piercing and then got himself a t-shirt made up that said 'I did Brittney'.

Priceless. Just priceless:
A video of Britney Spears' soon-to-be ex-husband apparently getting a text message informing him that the pop princess had filed for divorce became the most viewed item on the YouTube Internet site on Thursday, with more than 1 million hits.

The Web video shows Federline taping a reality television show and talking about Spears being his biggest fan -- until he gets a text message. Then he puts his head in his hands, rips off his microphone and disappears, returning 30 minutes later visibly upset.
Ok, not too priceless. You know some dick is going to FPP this. BritneyFilter.
