Britney Spears Channels Angelina Jolie, Part II?
An earlier satirical spot claimed Britney Spears was set to channel and emulate Angelina Jolie and travel to Africa and have her second baby in Namibia.

It ran for nearly a day as an actual news story and was even picked up by the Associated Press before Jill Atkins chimed in and pointed out the brilliant satirical piece.
Now MSN Entertainment asks if Britney is channeling Angelina again.
First she dyed her hair black.
Was that to copy Jolie? Next MSN points out that Jolie just signed on to voice “Tigress” in the animated flick “Kung Fu Panda.”
They then point to the new posting on Brit’s web site about – what else – tigers. In the “Love B” section of britneyspears.com, the singer quotes poet William Blake:
“Tiger! Tiger! Burning bright/ In the forests of the night/ What immortal hand or eye/ Could frame thy fearful symmetry?”
She then provides her own thoughts on the topic. “In some ways, people are a lot like animals,” she writes. “We all hunger for the same things. Love, lust, danger, warmth and adventure. Like people, animals all have their own rhythm to life.
“I’m mesmerized by tigers,” she continues. “Their eyes, their stripes, their constant quest for survival. They almost have a sense of mysteriousness about them. They pull you in and make it difficult to look away. They make you wonder what is behind their gaze.
“A sense of eerie awe comes over you in their presence. The fear they give you when you pass them is stunning. Behold the beauty of the tiger.”
In the words of Edie Brickell, “Choke me in the shallow water before I get too deep.”
But MSN ponders, is Brit’s new fascination with tigers and new black hair-do another shot at emulating Angelina Jolie or just a coincidence?
She could certainly pick a worse role model. Perhaps she should channel Angie.
