It's like Jamie Lynn Spears wanted to give THG something to post about today.

The newly-engaged sister of Britney Spears Tweeted at Justin Timberlake out of nowhere yesterday and referenced the "Cry Me a River" controversy.

From 2002. Which is probably about when this undated and unsourced photo she Tweeted (and then deleted right away) was taken. Check it out ...

Jamie Lynn, Britney and Justin

For reasons unknown, Jamie Lynn Spears wrote to JT: "@jtimberlake Weird hearing ur music as an Adult. Ha Not only do I appreciate it. I GET it. #jay #crymeariver #mirror."

When "Cry Me a River" first came out, Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears had just ended a high-profile, made-in-celeb gossip heaven romance.

Britney Spears is apparently is on top of current events.

The singer, or whatever intern she has running her Twitter, was tweeting at NASA's Mars Curiosity rover earlier this week, and it was pretty funny!

The singer wrote, "So @MarsCuriosity... does Mars look the same as it did in 2000?" She included a link to her video for "Oops!...I Did It Again."

Britney "visited" Mars in that video ... playing out an interplanetary love story and setting an intergalactic camel toe record with her red latex catsuit.

The best part? Mars Curiosity responded!

From the red planet (or at least the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif.), the Cur-zizzle took a break from collecting samples to post:

Ooh, these two are totally flirting. Should Jason Trawick be worried?

Side note #1: Did NASA Mohawk Guy Bobak Ferdowsi write that?

Side note #2: That video came out 12 years ago, yet Britney Spears' career is still going strong despite a series of ups and downs. Impressive, B!

Britney Spears' fans are pushing a major Twitter campaign to get the star to appear on Modern Family after the singer mentioned her affinity for the ABC comedy.

The hashtag #GetBritneyOnModernFamily trended worldwide yesterday.

It started when Brit, who had a cameo on Glee and a guest role on How I Met Your Mother, wrote, "I know everybody's excited about the Super Bowl, but I personally can’t wait to see the next episode of Modern Family! Funniest show on TV."

Modern Family star Sofia Vergara retweeted her message. Spears' manager Adam Leber asked fans on the site for their input on a possible Spears cameo:

"BritneySpears on Modern Family? What do you guys think?”

Twitter users jumped on the bandwagon. "I bet if Britney was on Modern Family, she would give the show its highest ratings to date!" one tweet said.

Spears took a screen shot of the trending hash tag and posted it to Facebook. "You all are at it again - look what's trending!" the 30-year-old said.

Responding to fans, she said: "Ahhhh I would love to be on it!"

What do you think? Should Britney appear on Modern Family?

The holiday shopping season officially kicks off at 12:01 a.m. Friday.

Even Britney Spears is not immune from feeling the retail pressure.

On Wednesday, the pop star Tweeted to her fans, asking what she should buy for her loved ones ... specifically her mom Lynne. Britney wrote:

"Since I'm on tour, I'm gonna do my Holiday shopping online this year..but I need ur help picking out gifts. Let's start w/ mom! Any ideas?"

Hilariously, her Twitter following (currently 11.2 million and rising by the day), responded. "GET YOUR MOM A CUSTOMIZED SLAVE 4 U OUTFIT," one Tweeted.

"She would look so hot!" Spears replied. "She would definitely look fierce :)"

The soon-to-be 30-year-old also LOLed at this suggestion: "Give her a picture of you as Mrs. Claus, Jason as Santa and Sean and Jayden as little elves!"

And she liked a sweet, simple idea from a follower who said: "I think you should get a scrap book made for her! That way you can have it hand made!"

Brit eventually settled on the hairstyling tool EZ Curler for her mom. Not as fun as these other ideas, but probably more useful as a stocking stuffer.

A 31-year-old woman was killed when she fell from a fairground ride set up right outside Dublin's O2 arena after a Britney Spears concert there Monday.

The singer took the news particularly hard.

"I was saddened to hear of the tragic accident in Dublin. My heart goes out to the family. - Britney," Spears personally tweeted after the incident.

"We can't say [what happened], it all happened so quick," Kenneth McFadden, owner of fair operator McFadden Entertainment, told Dublin's Independent.

"We are just in bits at the moment, we are just devastated."

The woman was identified as Siobhan Healy. She reportedly fell off of a ride called the Tip Top. The National Police Service is investigating Healy's death.

Earlier in the night, fans waiting to get into the show were caught in a heavy downpour that prompted severe weather warnings to be issued countywide.

Britney Spears performed in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Tuesday and will play two shows in London this weekend as her Femme Fatale tour rolls through Europe.

Long gone are the days of head-shaving meltdowns and salacious gossip.

For Britney Spears, that was 2007 and this is now. And it's for the best.

The star described herself as a “boring homebody” in a Q&A Twitter chat with fans this week, saying of her life these days, “I'm really just a boring homebody who just loves staying home with my kids, that's where i'm the happiest.”

So Pretty in Pink Britney

The Twitter Q&A gave Britney a forum to promote her new album, Femme Fatale, which drops on March 29. But don’t expect to see her at the Grammys.

Addressing a rumor that she is going to appear and perform "Hold It Against Me" live, Britney wrote: “I won't be there and was never planning on going.”

One place she does want to go, however, is on tour, soon: “I would to visit a lot of places I didnt get to go to on my last tour... Especially BRAZIL!!!”

After trash talking Britney Spears on Twitter about her new #1 single and how he "let her" have the top spot, Kanye West feels the need to clarify.

Because it's Kanye, some people assumed this was Taylor-Gate reloaded. But he was seriously not trying to start a feud with Spears, West insists.

Naturally, he took to Twitter again to rectify the situation.

It is Britney, Bitch

I'MMA LET U BE #1: It was a joke, people!

Aside from his inability to spell Britney, and the fact that the Shift and 1 keys on his MacBook are going to fall off, his ramblings are fairly well reasoned, funny and self-deprecating. Mostly. Here's what the much-maligned rapper had to say:

    Just saw that MSNBC said I tried to start a twitter war with Brittany.

    This shit takes the air out my lungs sometimes from blogs to news reports… enough already!!! All I do is focus on my work.

    There's a new lie everyday… a new media spin… I never got a watch with my face on it!!! A company tried to give that to me 9 yrs ago!

Kanye West pulled a Kanye West and trash talked Britney Spears and her #1 single, "Hold it Against Me," on Twitter. Jokingly, we think. Mostly.

"Yo Britney, I'm really happy for you and I'mma let you be #1, but me and Jay-Z's single is one of the best songs of all time! LOL,” Kanye wrote.

West's Tweet, of course, is a reference to his infamous Taylor Swift MTV VMA speech hijacking and to Kanye’s new song "H.A.M." (featuring Jay-Z).

In Hot Pink

While West later removed the Tweet, Spears' manager Adam Leber appeared none too impressed when he responded on the pop singer's behalf.

"Thanks for 'letting' us be #1," Leber wrote. "Much appreciated."

West later apologized for it, telling fans, "On a serious note I'm truly happy for Britney Spears. No hate in 2011... I thought LOL signified a joke."

Typically yes, but when you're a total loose cannon, sometimes the public won't automatically assume you're lighthearted or poking fun at yourself.

In any case, these guys aren't kidding about taking town Brit.

People on Twitter love Justin Bieber.

Of the top 10 re-Tweeted messages of the whole year, one was by Justin Bieber, and two others pertained to Justin Bieber. Which makes sense ... it is his world.

While celebrity Tweets registering at "100+" is commonplace, the social networking site actually did compile the top 10 re-Tweeted messages of the year.

Weezy and Gaga both made the Twitter Top 10.

The year's top Twitter posts included a defiant Britney Spears, food for thought by Drake, and a hilarious, sad and topical one-liner by Steven Colbert.

Strangely, Al-Qaeda cracked the top five. It's a satirical account, not really updated by Osama Bin Laden ... we think. How morbidly funny would that be?

So who came in at #1? Read the list after the jump ...
