Britney Spears’ first album, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 when it debuted in 1999, has hit the 14-million mark, making it 14 times platinum. According to the Hollywood Reporter, . . .Baby One More Time is now in the same stratosphere as Meat Loaf’s Bat Out of Hell, Metallica’s Metallica, Garth Brooks’ Ropin’ the Wind, and Simon & Garfunkel’s Greatest Hits. So, since it takes only one hit single to set an artist up for life financially, Britney Spears can do anything the hell she likes with anyone she likes and can cancel her tour and marry him even if he’s abandoned the pregnant mother of his children, and the rest of us can go fuck ourselves.
