and Britney manager Johnny Wright says to Entertainment Weekly that Britney
may have a shot at breaking the 'N Sync opening week record for album sales,

The promo efforts by 'N Sync are most likely going to be emulated both
by Britney in May and the Backstreet Boys this fall.
29, 2000 - The latest rumor going around is that 'N Sync's new song Digital
Getdown was written by Justin, not JC as the credits suggest, and is about
his relationship with Britney Spears. Rumors also have it that the two
would "get closer" using webcams while they were both on tour. Justin was
asked about the song in TV Guide and said "I think it's quite safe sex
if you ask me." when asked if it was about cyber sex.

Angeles Times is reporting that there is a new Britney Spears figure in
the Hollywood Wax Museum, which may give welcome relief as silicon rumors
are replaced by wax facts!
March 27, 2000 - We got word
today that perhaps the Justin story reported earlier is a hoax. We'll try
and look into this, the allegation is that it was made by a Backstreet
Boy fan, though anyone reading it would have had empathy for Justin so
I'm not so sure that would make sense. There was no specific radio station
in the report so verifying either way may be difficult.

March 26, 2000 - Britney's
mom has another update on Britneybeat.com. Apparently while filming Oops,
I did it Again in Los Angeles, a camera fell and hit Britney in the
head, causing her to bleed and requiring stitches. Britney also suffered
a concusion from the incident and worried the hell out of her mom. We threw
in a picture from the video, although not the gory details most probably
want to see!
March 26, 2000 - Totalmusic.net
is reporting that a radio station in the Datkotas grilled Justin about
Britney, specifically about his no comment on AOL we reported earlier.
After awkward moments of silence and having him politely hang up afterwards,
here's the gist of what he said: "If I were to have said Yes we were dating
all hell would have broken lose, but whenever I said No people still asked
me about it, they didn't let it go. So either way I lost, no matter how
you look at it. No one except for other people in this buisness can possibily
understand what that's like. Yes, it does get funny when I see myself with
all these different girls because I'm not a player, but sometimes it just
really hurts that people think they know so much about you. I have feelings
too, and I don't think I deserve to be treated like this."

by 'N Sync during their initial week.

which we starred, we went our separate ways."
March 22, 2000 - Rick Dees
reported Monday on Britney lip synching by saying "who cares" and that
"Britney can't hold a note while doing a backflip". He said she can sing

filed for bankruptcy.

to USA Today, a Britney Spears spokesperson is denying all charges that
Brit and Justin were shacking up in LA. Sounding ironically OJ Simpson-esque

a home in the UK. Join us again for another episode of As Britney Turns!

March 14, 2000 - The New
York Daily News is reporting that Britney is going to release her book
on May 9th, the same day her new album is out. The glaring error in the

NY Daily News, Britney is 18 and won't be 19 until December 2nd!
March 14, 2000 - Kind of
stale news we saw on groupiecentral.com, but it bears repeating. They have
a behind the sceens at the Grammys report and say that Britney could barely
fight back tears after Christina beat her for Best New Artist and slam
Brit by saying "Do you think Pamela Anderson Lee will ever win an Oscar?
So get over yourself if you believe you're an important artist. Just shut
up, keep flashing your [breasts] and ass while they're still perky, and
cry all the way to the bank."
March 14, 2000 - Latest usenet
rumor on Britney, that she's dating OJ Simpson! LOL, uh, we don't think
so, though we suspect Brit's dance moves would be valuable in self defense
against a knife attack. alt.fan.britney-spears
March 14, 2000 - Latest word
is that Britney indeed is going to be doing commercials for the Clairol
Herbal Essences line. Somehow I doubt Brit will agree to moan and yelp
sexually for the shampoo like so many commercials in the past have for
the product. *Fingers crossed* but maybe....
March 13, 2000-Britney Spears
is "driving her fans crazy" just one more time by posing for her second
Milk Mustache ad as the 100th Milk Mustache celebrity to appear in the
famed "got milk?" Milk Mustache campaign. And yes, the little girl posing
next to Britney is none other than Britney herself transposed.
March 13, 2000 - More info
on the Justin and Britney pictures. Apparently they are in this week's

March 11, 2000 - In a stunning
upset, Britney Spears lost to Christina Aguilera in MTV's Video Feuds.
The crushing first round defeat was 57% for Christina, 43% for Aguilera.
We think it was fixed! All net traffic would point to Britney being much
more popular than Christina, this site gets about 80% more traffic for
Brit than Christina so it seems to be a rigged event.
March 11, 2000 - Huge News!
Rick Dees reported Friday that Britney and Justin Timberlake are living
together! There are photos to prove it as well! They've been in a rented
mansion in the Hollywood Hills since February 9th where Justin apparently

these pics ASAP]

March 7, 2000 - The Globe
is reporting that Prince William has dumped his cyber gal Britney Spears
for 19 year old British Aristocrat, Isabella Anstruther Gough. They also
say Britney was in tears when it occurred... Personally, I doubt this scenario
is correct, Will's hormone's are flowing and breaking off anything with
the most popular teen in the world seems far-fetched. When Britney lands
in the UK, no doubt this tabloid story will be turned around.
March 7, 2000 - Britney has
signed on to endorse Clairol products, although there's no work on whether
she'll be doing the pseudo sexual moaning (ohhh yess, yess!!) that is common

March 2, 2000 - Well the
National Enquirer is chiming in on the whole Britney Christina love duel
for Prince William. Apparently, Brit is the heavy favorite to land the
heir to the throne, as Wills has pictures of Britney plastered throughout
his room at Eton, the boarding school he attends. Said a royal insider
"It's a romance in the making -- there'll be fireworks when these two meet!
Wills is a young man now, not a boy, and it's not just Britney's singing
that appeals to him. He's developed a very healthy interest in the opposite
March 2, 2000 - e! Online's
weekly gossip column is out again substantiating what we at abstracts.net
are convinced of, Britney's authentic breasts. Apparently before the Grammys
Britney was walking around before the ceremony "in a state of partial undress"....
And witnesses are claiming "She's normal."
