Britney Spears on David Letterman always helps ratings. Spears went on David Letterman last night to present a Britney Spears Top 10, and in the process present herself in a humorous light. The topic for the Britney Spears Top 10 was the ways the country would be different if Britney Spears were President. The ploy by Spears was pretty obvious, in that she is very proud of how she is worked her body back into great shape, and she presented the Top 10 while perched on a hotel desk wearing only a string bikini and a big red flower in her hair.
The Britney Spears top 10 probably accomplished exactly what she wanted it to, in that it put Britney Spears back in the limelight in a positive manner, and it showed that the pop princess was willing to poke a little fun at herself while appearing on the David Letterman show again. Spears has had a rough couple of years, and it seems that recently she has really gotten her act together, and was ready to present a top 10 list in a manner that would be a bit funny for the audience. While this Britney Spears top 10 list wasn’t laugh out loud funny, it did add a lighter mood to the night of the David Letterman show, and presented some good entertainment for viewers.
A couple of the Britney Spears top 10 list entries poked fun at Spears wanting to be involved in parties, and included “we would only invade fun places like Cabo”, “free pie for everyone”, “my situation room would be a cabana at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas”, and “I’d lure Osama out of hiding with the irresistible scent for my new fragrance ‘Circus Fantasy'”. This last one was a poke at the numerous fragrances that Britney Spears has produced recently, and a note worth smiling about during the top 10 list. Sure this wasn’t the funniest top 10 list that David Letterman has had on his show, but it was some light fare that probably kept viewers quite interested.
This was seemingly a calculated move by Britney Spears to get her name back out there after being out of the media eye on her recent concert tour. That doesn’t mean that she hasn’t been mentioned in tabloids recently, but that she has kept out of the scandals, and appears to have worked very hard to get her body into great shape. So both Britney Spears and David Letterman turned out to be winners on Tuesday night, with Letterman getting the enigmatic guest to appear on his show again, and Spears having the opportunity to issue the statement that she is still out there, just waiting for her next 15 minutes in the spotlight.
