SOUNDBITE (English) Thairin Smothers/Co-Curator, "Just Britney": "One of my favourite pieces that I actually fell in love with for this show was Jamie Boling's "Snake Charmer" piece, and that's Britney getting out of the limousine - the famous paparazzi show. So, having that come here to Hollywood, and being hung - it's six foot by 10 foot - to see it in the size was just amazing." 14. Wide "Snake Charmer" piece 15. SOUNDBITE (English) Thairin Smothers/Co-Curator, "Just Britney": "You know what? Being that it's on Hollywood Boulevard, I think it's like...the tourists that are on Hollywood Boulevard, I think they need art spaces like this. They come here for this pop culture; movie, media, television experience, and when you can actually walk into a space like this, based on a pop princess, Britney Spears, just watch their faces and see how they react, that's I find the funnest part of the day for me." 16.

Medium patrons examining painting SPEARS' LIFE BECOMES ART IN HOLLYWOOD EXHIBITION It's a gallery's worth of art inspired by fallen pop star Britney Spears. The two-week exhibit, titled "Just Britney," opened 28 September, and boasts a wide variety of media: from paintings to photographs and even bubblegum. More than 30 artists have contributed to the show, which is being held at the World of Wonder Storefront Gallery in the heart of Hollywood on Hollywood Boulevard. Co-curator of the exhibition, Thairin Smothers, talked to AP Entertainment about her favourite elements of the show. "One of my favourite pieces that I actually fell in love with for this show was Jamie Boling's "Snake Charmer" piece, and that's Britney getting out of the limousine - the famous paparazzi show. So, having that come here to Hollywood, and being hung - it's six foot by 10 foot - to see it in the size was just amazing." Spears' continuing downward spiral took a devastating turn Monday when she was ordered to relinquish custody of her children by a judge who had cited her drug-and-alcohol-fuelled lifestyle.
