Britney Spears goes from pop princess to Twitter queen

Britney_Spears Britney Spears has done it all. She’s sold millions upon millions of albums. She’s tongue-wrestled Madonna at the MTV Video Music Awards. She’s braved the germ-infested pavement of local gas stations with her bare feet — sometimes while munching on Cheetos. Heck, she's even whacked an SUV with an umbrella while sporting a shaved head!

Now she’s the queen of Twitter. (I’ll pause while you take a minute to care.)

Move over, Aston Kutcher. It seems more followers care to learn who Britney Spears considers her favorite “Sex and the City” character than about Kutcher's re-tweets of quotes by anonymous people. Hey, life is full of mysteries.

The pop star dethroned the Twitter king, who once famously beat CNN to 1 million followers. As of Tuesday morning, Spears had 4,962,175 followers while Kutcher had 4,950,807 followers. 

Spears, not surprisingly, was enthusiastic about the achievement, taking to her Twitter account — often controlled by her manager or other members of her staff — to personally thank fans. "This is really amazing! I love you all! I better get busy writing 4,947,608 thank you notes! U guys make me sooo happy! -Brit," she wrote.

Kutcher, though, isn’t mourning the loss of his Twitter crown.  “I don't care," he Tweeted after getting the news at a junket for his upcoming movie “Killers.” Maybe he was too busy trying to make people care about that movie?

Great! another twittering twit twits about her sad, uninteresting life...unless she goes on a rampage again (that was funny)...otherwise she's a god-awful pop singer and really just untalented...okay, go ahead start going ballistic over this...but seriously her music is really truly bad..awful....

i bet Britney could care less about all this media coverage about her. America truly has an obsession w/ The Legendary Miss Britney Spears Queen of Pop. She defines a true celebrity, she's the perfect example of a Pop icon, a true Legend!

Britney a legend??? bwaaahahahhaaha!!! ..and so is Keisha and Jessica Simpson...bwaahahahaha!!! It's sad when some people who listen to Britney's music think it's great...I see bad taste never goes out of style...

BRITNEY IS #1 AT TWITTER WITH OVER 5.5 MILLIONS FOLLOWERS. SHE IS STILL THE MOST POPULAR FEMALE ARTIST AFTER 12 YEARS SINCE 1998. BRITNEY IS THE QUEEN OF POP WITH A LEGENDARY STATUS.
