Britney Jean Spears, purveyor of pop and inventor of the "strut, twirl, tilt," will be taking her provocative performance art to Tel Aviv this summer, thus forcing Israel's Labor Party to defer its official leadership vote.

Both events were originally scheduled for July 3rd, but Spears' prolific work was naturally deemed more pressing than the country's primary election. The two were planned to happen in nearby locations, as well--Hayarkon Park for Spears and the adjacent Convention Center for Labor.
One of the biggest concerns, according to Haaretz, was the lack of available security guards--many would be employed for Spears' big event, leaving the Labor Party with insufficient protection for their voting booths. Tel Aviv also considered the people, who'd likely want to see Spears in concert and vote, but would be hindered by blocked traffic routes.
Israel isn't the first country to put pop culture ahead of politics--just look at America's recent decision to elect reality TV sensation Donald Trump as our President. Funny how things work, isn't it?
