Britney Not in New York, Not the "Cloverfield" Monster

January 10, 2008 11:17 AM ET

After all her worried family members descended from Louisiana to L.A., pleading with Britney Spears to get help, the troubled pop star did what any sensible person would do: She ducked out of sight and flew to New York City. In a move that seemed to confirm message board speculation that she is in fact the Big Apple-attacking Cloverfield monster, Spears and her paparazzi friend Adnan Ghalib flew from Van Nuys airport to Teterboro airport in New Jersey at

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!"

Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
