"BRITNEY pondering Jolie-style birth
Following in the steps of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Britney Spears is considering a Namibian birth for her next baby, a government official said.
Deputy Environment and Tourism Minister Leon Jooste said officials have received an inquiry on behalf of the 24-year-old pop star.
Spears already has a baby son with husband Kevin Federline.
"She has shown interest to come over to Namibia," he said.
"Nothing has been confirmed yet, but there is a definite possibility of that happening."
He declined to provide further details, saying: "She wants to come in very low profile and have some privacy.
"She might change her mind if we reveal too much now."
... I mean: it's not often you get to hear the actual sound of someone shooting themselves in the foot. (Jooste perfect.) I am also strangely mesmerised and agitated by the use of the word "pondering" ...
I must say, I suspect that even if poor post-Federline Britney were to announce that the prospective child's father was Dick Cheney, and that she was in negotiations to give birth halfway up Everest, with David Blaine as attending obstetrician, she still couldn't scare up one thousandth of a micro Jolie of first-photo-panic media interest in the 'event'.
