In the early aughts, the news was dominated by two people: President George W. Bush and pop star Britney Spears. In the era of the 24-hour news cycle, this may not feel significant to some, but there is an online stronghold of conspiracy theorists who believe Britney Spears was on the Bush administration's payroll.
It sounds wild, sure, but for nearly every scandal of the Bush administration, there was a huge Britney Spears event coinciding with it. Despite the fact that correlation does not equal causation, some argue the parallels between Britney Spears and George W. Bush are too blatant to ignore. Did she really decide to randomly shave her head the same day the president requested additional "aggressive forces" for the War on Terror? Did one of Britney Spears's hits just happen to drop as the Bush administration was scrambling to cover up the underlying chaos in Afghanistan? Some would argue that it was all on purpose.
Here is why some people believe in this bizarre Britney Spears celebrity conspiracy theory.
