The Daily News tries to make up for yesterday’s lack of wordplay on the Busta Rhymes video shooting by coming up with lame wordplay instead. Still, it’s doing a full-front follow story on the crime, while the Post wanders off into celebrity grab-bag territory. “Britney baby shocker”? Because she didn’t use a car seat? Sheesh. The only Britney baby shocker is if that kid reaches a single developmental milestone on time. As for the page-dominating nudie photo–which is basically a free front-page ad for Vanity Fair–well, Tom Ford is officially so repulsive that his repulsiveness overpowers the effects of two naked movie stars. Feh.
