Things have been mighty busy over the last few days, but, not busy enough to certain thoughts out of my head:
Though not normally conspiracy-minded, I sometimes imagine that this whole break up between B. Aff and J. Lo is just a little TOO convenient. After all, I think, what better way to draw off the media frenzy surrounding your wedding than pretending that it isn't going to happen for a few weeks? This reckless bit of daydreaming is lent credence by the fact that there were official press releases all 'round when Ben broke with Gwyneth Paltrow. Yes, she's been seen at the beach without the ring... but would you wear a Harry Winston ring to the beach and into the surf? I think not.
Of course, this makes one wonder where they might actually get married. I'm thinking at the "Pimp and Ho Halloween Ball" in Las Vegas. Ben and J. Lo could get out of a 1965 Silver Cloud Rolls Royce... him giving off his best Mack Daddy vibe in a white silk suit, furs, and big hat... her in even more furs, jewelry, a handmade white calf skin suede corset, stilleto heels, and a chinchilla thong (hey,where else is she going to wear it?) Puffy could have pulled this off better, I suppose, but Ben would do fine... provided he didn't talk too much.
Finally, I have nightmares of Britney Spears doing a Christmas album in the next few years. I foresee new originals like "Would U like some candy, Mr. Claus?" and "(Lick UR) Candy cane". I also foresee a press clipping something like this:
"When asked about her influences for a Christmas album, Ms. Spears replied 'Well obviously, Mariah Carey has set the bar very high for Christmas albums, especially when it comes to the hem line of her Santa's Helper outfit. You can be guaranteed that we will find a way to keep the Christmas album hot, fresh, and funky with something that will let a woman be sexy.' When asked if this would be considered part of her unconditional support for all of President Bush's decisions, Ms. Spears replied 'I think so.'"
