Occasionally I wonder if I should care more about stuff like Britney Spears’ performance at the VMAs, since blogs and major news organizations and weirdos on YouTube all seem so intent on it. So I do a little research, I see what people are saying–maybe she had a broken heel, maybe she’s just going through a rough patch in her life, maybe she was phoning it in and doesn’t respect her fans. And I take a look at the actual video in question, which does seem a little lackluster.

But ultimately, I still find no reason to care, and now I’ve wasted ten minutes of my life.
