Fizzing All Over Malibu
This is London reports this morning that "Britney Spears' one-woman vendetta against the paparazzi continues..." This time, she's been photographed throwing Coca-Cola over an unsuspecting photographer outside a Subway shop in Malibu.
Spear's new back-woods husband just laughed vindictively as his bride flipped off the Coke-splattered photographer. Married life seems to have emboldened the pop princess as the Malibu fracas follows last week's incident where Brit Brit flung a milkshake at on-lookers while wearing a 'Scream' mask.
Really, LAist wouldn't care much about this latest tantrum if it hadn't occurred in Malibu -- one of the prettiest, non-liquid- flinging cities in all of Los Angeles. Doesn't Britney realize that whatever beverage she's hurling at her paparazzi tormentors also hits the protected soil of our beach city? "Oops, I Littered Again!" should be the latest message inscribed on those trucker hats she's always wearing.
And we're scared, really -- that the pop princess' next "extremely-tasteful" act may include erecting a 10,000 square foot trailer park on the Malibu shore, just so her extended family can feel at home while visiting.
There should be laws against something like that. Especially in Malibu.
