Key Points:

Britney Spears

' comeback single

Womanizer

, from her upcoming album

Circus

, has debuted - again.

After a rather embarrassing false start last week, the track hit U.S. airwaves on Friday - days after Spears' record company Jive moved the single's official release date, due to some genius

online.

The short, hideously-poor-quality recording of Brit Brit's

Womanizer

was played by a U.S. radio station DJ last week, as well as being published on its website. The singer's record company pulled a face and the track was subsequently yanked.

According to MTV.com, Jive says the 37-second clip was probably made after a rep for the record company played the track to the station during a phone call. The rest is history.

Hit us one more time?

Granted, you've all probably listened to this track at least a million times already (actually, if you have, you need help...more on that later), but humour me.

So what's the verdict on the comeback contender's single?

Let me put it this way, it's got HIT written all over it. It's catchy, saccharine-coated, superficial pop that will inevitably burrow its merry way into your head. Trust me, to resist is futile.

The song has a certain melodic charm - a bit like a jackhammer or a dentist's drill does.  I wouldn't go as far as to say it's the audio equivalent of a drive-by shooting, but it's pretty darned close.

Packing a punch with asinine

including: "You say I'm crazy/ I got your crazy/You're nothing but a womanizer,"

Womanizer

ain't gonna be up for an Ivor Novello, bit I don't think it even pretends to be a contender.

Enough of what I think. It's Brit Brit's fans who will decide whether this single is the real deal. So what do you think? Spill your thoughts below.

Meanwhile...

Bit Brit's video for the song is apparently shaping up nicely.

According to an on-set snitch who witnessed the filming of the video last week, we can look forward to a sultry vision of a tattooed Britney unveiling before our very eyes.

In one scene, Spears (wearing her Sunday best, i.e. tight, black leather pants and fake tattoos on her arms) writhes around on a kitchen floor like some wanton sex goddess, and proceeds to straddle some bloke in a suit. As you do.

The next scene is one of her seductively sucking on cherries and "dangling them around her mouth," a witness tells Usmagazine.com.

I'll stop right there. Way, way too many cheap stabs at innuendo milling through my mind.

Quote of the day

"I've never seen that (sex) tape of me and

Tommy

Lee

, and I don't ever want to. I see more than enough of Tommy as it is. I can't get rid of him.

"A bunch of creepy men made a lot of money from me and that tape, so I figured I should get in on the act and film myself."

Eh, Pamela Anderson?

Blind bits

You guess the celebutards...

"Which

girl and boy bands

have become so close in recent weeks, they've started

swapping partners

? The promiscuous groups are getting a bad rep among disgusted record label bosses."



"Which

musical family man

is

having a kinky affair

? He and his wife are on the outs, and he's totally smitten with a younger sultry vixen. Why? She loves porn and experimentation."

"Which

lanky actor

claims he's always been skinny but actually his continuing weight loss has more to do with a

two-gram-a-day coke addiction

?"

"Who almost skipped the

Emmys

because of a

bruised and battered face

? This

actress

wanted to look her very best when on stage. However, the marks from her recent plastic surgery were still very obvious. A desperate search for a makeup artist and hair expert specialising in concealing scars and bruises ensued, and the star wound up looking perfect. Some say a little too perfect."

Blogger's brief

Today is a very special day, folks.

Believe it or not, this blog is now a year old. Yes, twelve delightful and fun-filled months have passed since I first started populating this darkened corner of cyberspace with celebrity scandal and superficiality.

What can I say; it's been one hell of a ride. To quote a famous Madonna lyric, I feel like I've "been through the wilderness, but somehow I made it through". Nah, scrap that. It's been an absolute joy.

Thanks to all of you for your continued support and insatiable thirst for shallow, celebrity-laden gossip. I salute you!

Here's to the next year, darlings...
