Britney Spears' Kim Kardashian Dig Is Surprisingly Refreshing

britney spearsWith the Democratic National Convention well underway, I think it's time we talk about some serious issues here. Like what Britney Spears said about Kim Kardashian in her interview with Elle recently. The pop songstress, who may or may not (definitely may) post old photos of herself on Facebook under the auspice that they're "new", let it be known that there is no way in fresh hell she could ever be Kim Kardashian -- because Kim Kardashian spends 16 out of her 17 waking hours getting her hair and face did. And that would only allot one hour a day for walking around gas station bathrooms barefoot.

I kid. But here's what Spears said to the mag: "I love my jeans and my sweats. I’m really just a tomboy at heart. So it’s really hard for me to be like Kim Kardashian and be makeup-and hair-ready every time I go out of my house. I’m not a believer in that, you know? On the other hand, when you do wear those sweats, you’re like, Oh God, I should step it up a notch."

I hear you, Britney. Although being Kim Kardashian obviously comes with its perks (you get to be ridiculously gorgeous and balls-to-the-wall rich), holy mother, it seems exhausting. I mean, did you see her makeup tutorial? I think it took Michelangelo less time to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. I totally get that Kim's appearance is a large part of her career -- girl's in the business of looking good -- but I don't think her livelihood would be compromised if she walked around bare-faced and in jeans once in a while. She's a beautiful woman no matter what.

So, don't get down on yourself, Brit Brit, for not being a glamourpuss 24:7. That takes a special kind of commitment. And, moreover, it doesn't seem remotely fun. Who wants to spend all that time in a makeup chair before they run out to grab a carton of milk?

Do you "get ready" every time you leave your house?

"because Kim Kardashian spends 16 out of her 17 waking hours getting her hair and face did?" Please actually attempt to proof read your articles. Even a first grader would notice that error.

Aunt_ning...the term getting your "hair did" is a slang term used in this generation and was not a grammatical error on the bloggers part:/ I'm surprised you've never heard it used before as I'm sure even most first graders have;)

Yeah, "hair did" is a phrase. Blogger knew what she was doing. I love Britney! Always have, always will. I also love Kim but she def. should go without make up sometimes. I have a routine I do every morning before I leave but I don't wear a face full of make up. I only wear eye make up so it's not bad or time consuming. Dressing up, head-to-toe, is fun.  I would love to sit in a chair and get my hair and make up done every once in a while!

i actually find brittany spears more likable due to her "issues" than other celebrities, she seems more human and less self absorbed

@ one point in my life I couldn't leave the house w/out gettin ready ... that was when I. Was 18 yrs old ... now that I am 30 a mother/wife of 2 children I def don't hav time ... I do the basics but def not the whole 9 yards ... & she needs 2 let her face breath because all that makeup she is def goin 2 need something 2 make her look beautiful ... she's def not goin 2 hav natural beauty anymore !!! Too much chemicals on her face can truely damage her through out time !! Has any1 seen her w/out makeup ... she def needs it !!!

Just waiting for the day when Kim has a child. High maintenance beauty routines aren't exactly compatible with being a mom. Unless you just carry on as usual and let someone else raise your child. I hope she chooses her child over the makeup when/if that time comes.

@elisa: Did someone dare you to make a blog comment using "def" as many times as possible? Like the word "meow" in Super Troopers?

Your first two sentences struck a chord with me. Sometimes I'm so tired of news and politics that I click on stories like these. Guilty pleasure, but without the guilt. As for makeup, I have a round face with oily skin and look 15 if I don't put makeup on, especially with my penchant for wearing sneakers if I'm just out and about. I don't put makeup on all the time, but I do put on sunglasses if I'm bare-faced because I'm still self-conscious.
