The Brash Lion Roars...: An Anniversary Tale:

The best part of the night? Justin comes on stage again, asks to use my mic (by no means was he particularly nice about it either. I can imagine why, but there was a definite sense of entitlement to his requests with me. He wasn't a dick, I just wasn't a fellow human being in his eyes), and proceeds to speak into the microphone. It was off. So I put my hand on his on the microphone and said, and I quote, "Here, baby, this is how you do it." And I turned it on for him (sweet vindication). And with not even a "thank you" he continues - "HEY EVERYBODY! If you see her at the bar, say hi or get her a drink or something because you know, it's Britney's birthday today!" And I look down and standing not three feet in front of me was, looking as cute as she does in pictures, Ms. Britney Spears. For some reason, this was bigger to me than "the band" even though I wasn't a fan of Spears either. But there's that Madonna syndrome, where it's a solo artist versus a group. I feel more power is had when it's one person taking the helm. Anyway, it must have been past midnight because Britney's birthday is actually the 2nd of Dec.
