Just a couple thoughts to kick around.....

A few years back we'd all say that Britney Spears current publicity is very un-Britney Spears-ish. But it has got her the #1 digital download currently. In fact she broke all records for digital downloads during her headline topping fiasco that drags on and on, with press releases popping up just as sales begin to slow.

Nice and wholesome just doesn't sell anymore. And that's what showbusiness is all about. Headlines and $$$$. Scandal is the only thing that gets press unfortunately. I'm just assuming David's PR guys finally convinced him of the same.

Either that or all the stories are true and he's some slimy son of a gun. YIKES!!

Raping young girls and cheating with married women? Which would you rather believe?

Humbly yours Smile

I'm sure there's stories I missed, but during the news blitz a few weeks ago the only story I heard about married women was the one where he backed off as soon as he learned she was married.

Besides, the question should not be what you'd rather believe but which, if any, are true.

I understand what you are saying but don't these kind of things backfire .... especially with Blonds?

Y'know... just supposing you were a world class magician with a multi million dollar empire and a travelling show... then picture your PR guys coming up to you and saying... "Hey Dave... let's get you up on some rape charges ... It'll boost sales!"

No, sorry... that is not what is happening here.

Also, it works to boost things for a bit, but the fall out/ fall off is way worse. Britteny's name is all but mud right now. And it will only get worse now. The ONLY thing it will sell is more smutt magazines. In the end, the final condition this all leaves her name in will be nothing good.
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

Ok, back from Vegas and we DID see David. As a note about the show it IS relatively the same as the past few years.

For those of you familiar with this current show: Shadow Box opener, Steel Plate pass through (of wich my wife and I were actually called on stage for this definitely an experience of a lifetime to be on stage with DC DURING his performance), Scorpion, 13, Lotto. What was different about the show was that he added the 'ring flight' a'la' baby shoe that he did on his 'Fires of Passion' episode. He also did the CRUNCH BOX illusion and flying rose. The HAWAII/FIJI routine is taken out of the lineup for good I believe.

His assistants are primarily men now (I assume due to the recent headlines of sexual harrasment ect...)

He was definitely in good spirits and we were the FIRST AUDIENCE he performed for in 2008! He brought his crew on stage to 'hang out' with the audience while we waited for the countdown to the new year!
...for the 51st time... that is NOT my card...
