Is the buzz dead? / will Britney be the last celeb in this loft?

The Wall Street Journal carried this news to me, but I am sure other media outlets had things to say about it that I missed.
Oops! It (finally) sold again
Britney Spears finally sold her Manhattan loft, after two years of marketing. The 4400 square foot penthouse unit in The Silk Building at 14 East 4th Street was first offered for sale in July 2004 for $5.975mm. Following several price drops down to $4.5mm over two years, the Journal reports that it sold last week for $4m.
The anonymous buyers are civilians, so this may be the end of the line for the celebrity residence of this penthouse, the provenance of which sets something of a straight line down, out of celebrity-hood.
the civilians were begat by Britney Spears,
who was begat by Russell Simmons,
who was begat by Keith Richards.
That is a fall from grace.
Did she ever live there? The pix from the agent’s website do not look very ‘lived in’.
