Britney Spears showed up in New York today as the new and unimproved Goth-Britney. I’m guessing she did this by herself judging from all the missed spots in the back there. Nice. If she’s going to take style tips from Ashlee Simpson, she should have gone for the current, less hideous Ashlee – not the scary, bloodless vampire version. But I guess some people just insist on learning things the ugly way.
