It Just Got Harder for Britney to Get a Drink

7/1/2008 8:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney SpearsHold the Venti Iced Frappuccino! Britney Spears may now have to drive -- or be driven (we hope) -- a little further to get her $5 buzz.

Brit's old stomping ground, Starbucks, has just announced they are closing 600 of their underperforming stores in the U.S.. Although Britney -- and her fellow over-caffeinated and oversized sunglass-wearing peers -- do their daily part to keep the coffee chain afloat, around 12,000 positions will be eliminated.

On the lighter side, Britney will always have gas stations.

And in a related note, the Citgo that Britney pumped gas at on Nov. 13, 2004 now has unleaded at $4.29.

What? She used the bathroom there? New post...Cottonelle's price is being raised 13 cents a package at your local grocery store.

What? Grocery store? I once saw a man at a grocery store.

What? Man? Grocery store?

Seriously TMZ ... you couldn't come up with anything better to report than a lame attempt to associate Britney Spears with the announcement Starbucks is closing 600 stores? Geezus, why do I even come to this site?

Caffeine buzz? Look at all of the cream on top of the coffee. Britney's drink is loaded with fat, cholesterol and sugar.

there's no such thing as an "iced frappuccino"... it's a frozen drink, the iced goes without saying.

Not so fast there hopalong. With gas prices skyrocketing, gas stations will start closing before long too. How will Twitney fill her time then?
