When Britney Spears is in town, democracy can wait.
Spears is set to perform July 3 in Tel Aviv, Israel. That's the same date as the Israeli Labor Party's primary election, according to Jerusalem Online.
Or, it was the same date, until the party decided to back down and reschedule until July 4 in favor of Spears.
The party's official statement didn't name Spears specifically, but said a "major event" at Yarkon Park on that date would make it too hard for party members to reach polling stations and vote.

That crowd is likely to be huge, considering she's drawn 20,000 tickets, according to fans.
This is NOT a late April Fool's joke: Israel's Labor Party, whose members are in their 70s, postponed elex due to a @britneyspears concert.— Gil Hoffman (@Gil_Hoffman) April 5, 2017
Israeli journalists insisted this wasn't a hoax.
