<b>Chris Crocker: "Leave Britney Alone!"</b> <br> It's hard to forget Chris Crocker's <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHmvkRoEowc" target="_blank">emotional plea</a> for the world to "leave Britney alone!" (Believe me, I've tried.)<br> Crocker's show of support for the floundering pop star set off a media frenzy that he somehow managed to turn into talk-show appearances and an international following. So what's our gender-bending friend up to now? Brace yourself.<br> Crocker &#8212; whose <a href="http://www.sharenow.com/relations/profile/chriscrocker/" target="_blank">official Web site</a> boldly boasts: "That's Ms. Chris Crocker to you, bitch!" &#8212; indicates that he has moved on to a <a href="http://www.sharenow.com/blog/post/2460/" target="_blank">music career</a>. His newly released single, said to be getting plenty of radio play, is called "<a href="http://www.sharenow.com/blog/post/2210/" target="_blank">Mind in the Gutter</a>." (Darn! My money was on a cover version of "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?") Crocker says that he has done a "lot of growing off-camera" and, though he's "still Chrissy from the Crock," he is "<a href="http://www.sharenow.com/blog/post/2114/" target="_blank">no longer the funny video guy</a>."<br> Hey, come on. Leave Chris Crocker alone.
