Where Should Britney Have Shopped?

Britney Spears seemed unimpressed while shopping for costumes; offer her shopping suggestions here.

Though it might not be as common as it once was, somewhere out there, someone will likely dress as Britney Spears for Halloween. But what will Britney be this year?

According to the Huffington Post, Spears looked "generally unimpressed" while shopping for Halloween costumes in Calabasas on Sunday, so whatever she'll be dressing as, it probably wasn't found nearby over the weekend.

The X Factor judge was shopping in town with her fiancé, Jason Trawich, according to the HuffPo article. See a photo of them shopping together here.

You live here. You know the city pretty darn well. Can you offer some great, maybe even unexpected, places to find costumes?

Patch, you're wrong. She wasn't in Calabasas she was in Westlake Village. Of course if you didn't just steal news and make it your own, you would know that. Patch, you suck. Do real news and stop stealing everyone else's content. What a fraud.

Hi Hendrei, Thank you for posting and giving me an opportunity to address your concerns. If you look over the site, you'll see most posts are written by Patch staff members. Some also come from Patch bloggers and City News Service, to which Patch subscribes. From time to time, we'll also link to a story by another publication. I disagree that we "steal" information or are in any way frauding people, as we ALWAYS give credit to the original publication and link to the story. In this case, we linked to our sister publication, Huffington Post (Patch and HuffPo are both owned by AOL). The fact is no publication can be everywhere at all times (and, frankly, we aren't typically going to run to cover a random celeb spotting: I don't see it as really being news, especially in Calabasas, where we have lots of famous residents, and we're not really about bothering people who are just trying to go about their lives). Because we strive to be helpful to our readers, however, we try to at least point them to articles about Calabasas residents or events that take place here, even if we're not the ones who wrote the original story. This might even seem counter intuitive to people who question why we'd "give" hits to other news sites, but our concern is making life easier for our readers by serving as a sort of one stop hub for local news. I hope this explains our philosophy. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact me at rebecca.whitnall@patch.com.

Any time I read Yahoo! msn news or any other online news outlet, I see they have articles from Huffington Post, NBC News, Associated Press, etc. One day those same news outlets will give credit to the Calabasas Patch in their byline. Keep up the good work, Rebecca and staff!

One day all may be as smart as you. Until then thank you very much for taking the time to write such an intelligent post.
