How does one paint this without removing every single thing from the area and spraypainting it? What a mess!

The only other way is to roll it useing a 1" nap roller. Some of the texture may come off but it should not be a major amount.

You have probably already painted but just in case, here's what you need to do.

If it has never been painted before, then you need to use an oil based paint. If you try to put a latex water base on the ceiling the popcorn will absorb the water and the roller will flatten out your ceiling makin g such a mess that you will wish you had never started. With this same principle, you could also spray your popcorn with water, scrap it off(very easy), lightly sand your ceiling and then paint it.
