britney spears, smarter than you might think
November 17, 2003 04:11 PM

This quote (which, like so much other random news, appeared in my inbox) from a BBC radio interview with Britney Spears just made me smile:

"I probably have more older fans than the younger ones, but I think the reason why everyone talks about the younger fans so much is because the parents are concerned," Spears was quoted as saying. "And in the end they shouldn't be concerned because they should trust their kids and believe in their kids."

Hmm. Yes.

Pause for a contented smile.

Listen, no one's kids are going to become oversexed, stupid, or gay because of Britney Spears (well, okay, maybe she might be part of some preteen lesbians' roots). They just like to imitate her for the power factor. [Heh, maybe if our world leaders were more exciting and wore cooler clothes, kids would imitate them.] It's fun, it's helpful, it's harmless.

Nuff said.

your wicked thoughts

Personally, I'd rather my hypothetical child look up tp Britney than to OJ Simpson or GW Bush, because at least Britney is not responsible for directly or indirectly getting anyone killed. Not that I know of anyhow.

Unless you count illness from wearing midriffs in winter...but seasonable fashion is a whole different conversation.
