I'd like to give a big shout out to a very important person who was born on this date, not so very long ago! It's Britney, bitch!

For her 27th Birthday, she decided she wanted a comeback. Here she is this morning, performing Circus on Good Morning America.

I love grainy video of Brit. It gives me the sensation that I'm looking at a mythical creature, caught unawares in its natural habitat, which in Britney's case happens to be... The center ring of a circus! Ho ho! The symbolism!

In other news: I'm totally buying that top-hat, hot-pants, half-shirt ensemble as soon as I can. Talk about clothing yourself for a recession! Less fabric and more class... that's the only way!

Also born today:
Gianni Versace, Tex Watson (of the Manson family), and legendary bassist Rick Savage! Who knew December 2nd was such an auspicious day?
