Via reader Mike S., the top clip is Kelly’s segment in late January about the moronic pun in the title of Spears’s new song and the bottom is Britney’s new vid. Watch Megyn from 0:37 to 0:52 and then compare it to the first five seconds and the last five seconds of Spears. I’m not even sure it’s fair to call this a goof: Clearly they mean to knock Kelly for being disapproving and “uptight,” but it’s so brief that there’s no bite to it at all. They probably had a longer bit about it originally, had to edit it for time reasons, and didn’t have the good sense to just drop it entirely.
Of all the reporters for a pop-star sex symbol to invite side-by-side comparisons with, too. Note to Team Spears: This match-up does not favor you. What’s next? Britney dons a brunette wig and takes a shot at Julie Banderas?
