The Princess of Pop provides the LOLs!
It's been a fantastic week for the #BritneyArmy. In other words, Britney Spears (AKA Godney, The Holy Spearit, et al) is actually doing promo for her fantastic, ninth studio album, Glory. Although it's all happening in the U.K., so, thank Godney for YouTube.
Some hysterical highlights: the reigning Princess of Pop (not debatable) sort of shaded the bananas buzz re: a rumored Justin Timberlake duet as well as Ariana Grande's Brit Brit pipes impersonation ("I've heard better.") in other interviews. Oops! But Britney's most entertaining moments went down on The Jonathan Ross Show. In short, she offered a G-Rated kiss to Alexander Skarsgard (lucky bloke!) as a result of a 'Spears Pong' challenge, said her grandma "spoke British," and claims she hasn't smoked weed since she was like, 17. She also dished on a nightmare blind date with a man who gave her "he looked like a lizard" vibes. Many can relate, Brit.
And then there was the brief game of Never Have I Ever, in which #Realney revealed she has passed gas in the past whilst performing. *Faints under desk* Also important: her singing two seconds of Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" on a helium thing, which is the first time Brit Brit has gifted us a live vocal during the Glory era/basically since 2004.
One can also enjoy the immaculately mimed performance of 'Make Me…' which finds Britney rocking a form-fitting bedazzled number, perfect pigtails (okay, they're a tad bit disheveled), and executing many a strut/hair-whip. Slay us one more time, Brit.

Current owner Jeff Lowe claims there are bodies, including "a young American Indian boy," buried on the property
It was recently reported that Carole Baskin had been awarded the property of the Tiger King Zoo—formerly the G.W. Zoo—in Wynnewood, Oklahoma after a judgment found in her favor.
As fans of the Netflix docuseries Tiger King will know, her long-standing legal feud with Joe Exotic (AKA Joseph Maldonado-Passage, né Shreibvogel) over his violation of the Big Cat Rescue trademark resulted in a million dollar settlement in her favor. But for the most part Exotic managed to dodge paying Baskin through a series of illegal property transfers that temporarily protected his animal park from seizure.
Now that Exotic is in prison for attempting to have Baskin murdered—along with illegal animal trafficking and several violations of the Endangered Species Act—a judge has finally ruled that the park is hers, and she will be taking over ownership of the 16-acre property later this year. But Jeff Lowe—the park's current owner and the personification of a mid-life crisis—insists that there are no hard feelings, saying, "She deserves this property."

The singers magnetic hit, which debuted at No. 1 on this day in 1967, still fiercely resonates
On this day in 1967, Aretha Franklin's "Respect" debuted at No.1 on the U.S. charts. The Otis Redding re-imagining would become the definitive song of the 1960's Civil Rights and Feminist Movements.
At just 24-years-old, the soon-to-be Queen of Soul took a song that was a desperate plea for companionship and transformed it into a cutthroat demand for equality. "Come to me for I'm begging, come to me for I'm begging, darling," Redding howls in his version. "Your kisses, sweeter than honey," Franklin croons on her re-imagining almost in direct response. "And guess what? So is my money." When Franklin's version continued to grow in popularity, Redding felt both emasculated and proud. "The next song is a song that a girl took away from me. A good friend of mine." Redding said playfully before diving into his rendition during his 1967 performance at the Monterey Pop Festival.
