I finally finished The Atlantic's profile of X17 / Britney Spears, which is occasionally insightful and occasionally meandering. (Is there anything better to summarize this age of celebrity than these two bits? -- Britney deciding to date a paparazzi dude and Britney staying up late at night to read the X17 message boards. Who's watching/fucking who now?) The accompanying online-only slideshow essay/interview is better in some ways, because it gets straight to the thinking of the production of celebrity.
