As of yesterday, Britney’s new song “Womanizer” has gone from #96 to the #1 song in the country. This is the first time that Britney has gone #1 (giggity) since her first single, “Baby One More Time” back in 1999. Ah, remember good old 1999 when we all thought the world was going to explode at midnight on New Years? Ahhh Y2K. What a simpler time.
Britney even trumped Mariah Carey. Britney had 286,000 first week download sales, which is 200 more than the last record holder….Mariah Carey. You see, Mariah only went crazy enough by stripping down to her underpants and passing out popsicles on TRL back in the day. I mean, Britney really went full throttle by shaving her head and attacking a car with an umbrella. Perhaps if Mariah had passed out umbrellas instead of popsicles, Britney wouldn’t have beat her.
