Over the weekend, a couple of media outlets jumped all over Britney Spears for what she wore on a shopping trip to Old Navy. Spears finally seems to be getting her life together and leaving her crazy behind her, so apparently the scrutiny must start up again. Now, it's one thing to analyze and critique stars' looks when they show up at a red-carpet event or at public appearances, but to say that a star is reverting back to a time when she seemed mentally unstable just because she walked out of the house without help from a team of stylists seems irresponsible. Couldn't this type of hyper-scrutiny hurt rather than help an individual who is already having trouble in terms of her mental health? Besides, who doesn't occasionally look bad when they head out to the mall? And how many thousands of us would be mortified if pictures of the inside of our messy cars were published around the world? So, the point is maybe we should all leave Britney alone... or at least cut her (and some of the other starlets) a little slack.

The animated sitcom The Jetsons turns fifty today. Original press materials for the show said that it was set in 2062, so it looks like we have to wait another 50 years for bubble-shaped flying cars and houses inexplicably built on the tops of very tall poles.
Bilbo Baggins could get an audience with Queen Elizabeth II this winter. On December 12th, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will premiere for the Queen or other members of the royal family in aid of the Cinema and Television Benevolent Fund.
