Britney Spears on the Cover of The Atlantic?

So Citizen and I just got our copy of The Atlantic delivered to Sugar HQ. But before we could crack it open, Pop stole it from our confused hands. I can see why they were so desperate to get at it. What in the world is Britney Spears doing on the cover of The Atlantic?!

The cover is to allegedly support a piece on paparazzi agency X17, but with the accompanying cover stories being "The Case For Polarization," and "Calcutta Rising," and "A Uranium Smuggler's Story" one has to wonder if including the former Mouseketeer's image in lieu of their usual map-collage-of-countries-in-strife pic, they might be branching out, ahem, content-wise? Or maybe it's just a very skillful parody? One wonders.

Now of course the question begs to be asked: Is Andrew Sullivan behind this somehow?

What do you think? Hottest selling issue of The Atlantic ever, or biggest sellout of the century?
