Britney’s “World” ends

January 3, 2007

Oh no! The world is coming to an end for Britney Spears.

Britney in better daysNo, she’s not giving up singing. Or drinking/clubbing. Or going commando on occasion.

According to a recent report, she’s lost her “credibility.”

Really? Like she had any to begin with…

US Magazine is reporting that one of Britney’s most-popular fan Web sites,, is shutting down for good. The site, founded by webmaster Ruben Garay, says the pop tart has lost her “credibility” and that he’ll be shutting down at month’s end.

I bet he’s been seeing “Britney’s crotch” web search hits in his dreams (or nightmares) over the past month or so. Join the club, Ruben!

From the article:

The site’s webmaster and founder, Ruben Garay, posted a press release on the site Wednesday. He writes:

As Britney keeps losing her identity and credibility within fans and industry people, so is WoB. We’re moving on to greater, bigger things. I would therefore like to announce the permanent shut down of World of beginning January 31st, 2007.

I think that WoB has had its run…….its feet are not holding firm anymore, not because of my ability to run it, but because I believe Britney is unfortunately done (for me at least). No matter what anyone thinks or how they may disagree, it’s very hard to maintain the respect needed to keep things going.

Today he added this addendum, assuring fans that the recent pics of Britney’s bare naked ladybits were not a factor in his decision to end the site:

The decision behind shutting down the site had NOTHING to do with Britney’s crotch shots…It’s simply time for me to move on…I still and will always RESPECT BRITNEY as a human being, we are just choosing to not go on with this site.

In the meantime, we watch Spears’ official site,, waiting for a response, most likely to be written in pink unicorn and rainbow hieroglyphics.

When your top fan sites start to shut down, it might mean you’re on the 14th of your 15 minutes of fame. (But then again, look at all the publicity that this site has gotten from this story… I wouldn’t be surprised if this is all a stunt to get more page views.)

Then, Jeanette Walls at MSNBC finds out that Britney has retreated to an Arizona spa for some downtime. How far “down” Britney is has yet to be seen.

From Walls’ column:

Is Britney Spears headed for rehab?

The “Oops, I Did It Again” singer reportedly checked into an exclusive spa “for some R&R” — and some are wondering if the third “R” — rehab — is in store. …

Spears quietly checked into Sanctuary, a spa in Arizona, on New Year’s Day, according to Life & Style weekly.

“With these celebrities, ‘exhaustion’ sometimes means something else and a little rest at a spa sometimes actually translates into something a little more serious,” says a source.

Spears’ rep couldn’t be reached for comment, but L&S reports that the singer’s parents are urging their daughter to go into therapy.

“It’s just been heartbreaking for her parents to watch Britney on this downward spiral,” an “insider” told the mag. “It’s so sad.”

Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan (my dubbed “axis of evil” co-horts) are nowhere to be found. It looks like a tough road for Britney to walk alone (well, with her bodyguards, entourage, hangers-on, publicists, chihuahua, etc…).

And she’s got a lot of overcoming to do, especially after the Sun ran this photo spread of her taken before her New Year’s collapse.

My prediction … Britney’s new album barely clears a million copies in sales. I’ll eat a printout of this column if I’m wrong.

    Hey Corey! I’m a Scobleizer fan visiting from his site; your posts are dandy (with that creepy Britney tie-in as strangely appealing). Your 2007 header is fantastically colorful and draws in the eye. Have a good one, Oh Creepy Britney writer.
