    More $$$$, more $$$, more$$$. Gosh I guess the “music business” really is in a slump. I did notice the product place in MATM( it looks like a commercial). I guess more of this to come.

    LMFAO! I told you idiots but none of you listened! Britney got ten times the amount of money for that product placement than that car will make at auction for her “charity” she’s just using her “charity” as a way for making money and looking good to the public. if she really wanted to help her charity she would give that 300k to them, but she’s too much of a money-grabber.
