Okay, so much of this is smoke and mirrors (and makeup and Spanx and ropes and harnesses and a four-day starvation diet) but still, Britney Spears looked undeniably former-Britney-esque as the good moneymaking folks at Fox brought the former world superstar out for show at the Fox Upfronts to announce her as the new X-Factor judge.
Now, I must admit, I watched ten minutes of last season's X-Factor before suffering both a migraine from the rapid camera movements and the startling commencement of a menstrual cycle by the time the fifth contestant broke down in sobbing tears, I'm not sure I can go through that bloody headache again. But I might just have to figure out a way to watch Britney if she's going to be doing a cleavage and upskirt-potential show week in and week out, and lay off the Burger King runs in betwixt.
When Britney is on, she's still on, IMHO. Enjoy.
