96 Second News: What Britney Spears Spends Most On; ‘iPhone X’ Feature Malfunctions During Unveil

Author: Lauren Kelly

**Britney Spears makes a lot of money…and she spends a lot of it on massages and her dogs.

How do we know this? Because she’s still under that conservatorship so we still get to see what she spends her money on every year.

TMZ obtained documents that show Britney made close to $16 million in 2016, and spent almost $11 million.

One of her bigger expenses was MASSAGES, which cost her around $122,613. She also spent about 70-grand on wardrobe, and $24,000 on makeup.

Another major expense was her DOGS. She spent $29,852 on them.

The stores she shopped at most included Pottery Barn, Ralph’s, Vons, Target, and Bed Bath & Beyond.


**Yesterday Apple held their annual presentation where they unveil the new iPhones, and the hot new one this year is the iPhone X, which has a screen that covers the entire face of the phone, has no “home button” and some really cool new apps, wireless charging, and will cost you $1,000.

By far the coolest feature of the new iPhone is that it doesn’t unlock with a passcode or with your thumbprint . . . it uses FACIAL RECOGNITION to unlock for you.

But when Apple’s Senior Vice President of Software Engineering, Craig Federighi, tried to show off that feature onstage yesterday . . . it didn’t work.

Hopefully they fix the bug before it comes out on October 27th.

**Jessica Biel got real about being a mom to her and Justin Timberlake’s son, 2-year-old Silas, during her recent appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

“Are we in the terrible twos?” Colbert asked.

“I believe we are … we’re there,” the first-time mom responded.

“I know if I meet someone and they call their two-year-old ‘terrible twos,’ it’s their first child because they’re nothing compared to the threes,” the late-night host and father of three replied.

“I haven’t, so for me this is terrible!” Biel laughed, adding that she’s constantly having to pry objects “out of his little slimy hand,” especially when he’s trying to sleep, to help her little guy avoid choking or poking hazards. “God forbid, they wake up in the middle of night,” she continued. “If you wake my kid up in the middle of the night by accident, you are dead to me.”
