Photo of Britney Spears In Tiny Car Makes Us WistfulS

We know it's been around the internet a couple times since yesterday, but we just find something so lovely and sad and telling about this photograph of a be-tube-topped Britney Spears, alone in a sea of asphalt, riding atop a tiny Escalade. Our Daytime Editor Alex Pareene says, "Here is your 21st century, America!" Here it is indeed. Puttering slowly in circles, bottled water clutched in hand, the hot sun beating down. Some days it feels as though we will do nothing else but form those lazy circles for the rest of time, until the day we all sigh, nod our heads, and disappear.
