    What Has The 'Leave Britney Alone' Guy Been Up To?

    Following Britney's horrible 2007 MTV VMA performance, Chris Crocker famously defended the singer on YouTube. In the five years since that video became a media sensation, Chris has managed to turn himself into something of an Internet celebrity. And now he's the subject of a new documentary premiering on HBO.

    In 2008, he appeared as an Internet correspondent on Lily Allen's show, Lily and Friends, where he posed questions to celebrity guests.

    The following year he quit YouTube for a hot minute and appeared in a Sierra Mist commercial.

    He also went on Tosh 2.0 to redeem himself. It was weird.

    Apparently he was born with "I'm a singer" gene. His first single, 'Mind In The Gutter', came out in September of 2008. Unfortunately for the Grammy voting pool, a full length album was never released.

    However, he managed to wax poetic and put out an EP in 2011. He also updated his look from Britney Spears to Brittany S. Pierce.

    Apparently a second EP is coming out this year. However, a release date has not been announced.

    But it was enough to award him his own discography Wikipedia page.

    Chris also dabbled in porn for a few years. Queerty has some SFW pics or you can check out his porn blog (NSFW).

    Now he's the subject of a new documentary, Me @ The Zoo, which premieres on HBO on June 25th. The movie is a look at his life in the wake of becoming an Internet sensation.
