Britney’s Facebook requires a Harvard grad

Spoiler alert: If you check in on Britney Spears’ Twitter feed, Facebook, MySpace page, and other electronic iterations, you might not really be communicating with Britney Spears. You might, however, be communicating with someone who is at the very least, very adept with a standardized test and number-two pencil.

Britney’s Facebook requires a Harvard grad

Spears’ online manager posted a job listing for “Britney Spears 2.0 Media Manager” on a Harvard-only private job board, reports techcrunch.

Among the job requirements: “you are addicted to social networks such as MySpace and Facebook. … You are a popular culture addict and passionate about the intersection of Silicon Valley and Hollywood.”

Sounds to us like Britney’s people want a Harvard type to manage and monitor her social-media presence. Takes that high-priced degree to update one’s Facebook status.

Spears also made news this week for allegedly breaking up with her onetime safe place, OK! magazine. Apparently her father, Jamie Spears, was refusing to deal with the magazine under new publisher Kent Brownridge. Because of that, Brownridge wasn’t going to allow OK! to cover the sisters Spears.

An OK! rep reiterates that this just isn’t the case. “We would absolutely cover (Britney and Jamie-Lynn) (and pay Jamie for the privilege of doing so!) when something newsworthy presents itself,” says the spokesperson.

Kudos to OK! also for admitting that, sometimes, celebrity magazines pay for interviews as well as for photographs.
