On This Day: National Nightmares Paris HIlton and Britney Spears
The stars collided, conspired or what have you on this date, for it can be no coincidence that it is both the birthday of hotel heiress Paris Hilton and the anniversary of the beginning of the end for pop-star Britney Spears. Yes, today in 1981, Paris was born. Who knew that little bundle of joy would grow up to be an amateur porn star, a failed pop singer and a national (hell, global) punch line?
But today, one year ago, was also when Britney Spears, following a one-day stay at rehab, shaved her own head. Hey, that adolescent rebellion stage had to kick in at some point, even if it was latent. Readers, beware the ides of February (ok, two days after the ides), lest your babes grow up to be paparazzi fodder.
