  1. The shocking photo Britney Spears doesn't want her millions of teenybopper fans to see.

    quote: It shows the blond pop tart with a cigarette in her hand as she relaxes on the balcony of her hotel room in Sydney, Australia. Moments before the picture was snapped, Britney, 20, spotted the lensman and made a dash inside to hide. But it was too late.

    For years, the curvy singer has preached to her fans about the benefits of clean living - no boozing and no smoking.

    Not too suprisingly really. She'll probably next get caught at some party involving drugs.

    I guess this is even worse: A Virgin? Not Britney Spears, says Justin

    Even if it's not true, it's not good for her image.
    Bah, not that I believe she's still a virgin, just covering the possibilities (she's HOT anyway)...

    Agreed.

    Although I am wondering why I should care...

    Has she preached abotu "clean living"? I don't know but I really dont' see anythign wrong with this. She's 20 Legal age for Tobacco in the US is 18 so she's "of age". Alcohol you can make a bigger argument against in a court or something but the fact is much of the 20 year olds in the US have drank before so singling 1 person out ins't right.

    Personally I think its sad that Brittney has to :"make a dash inside" to "hide" somethign that is legal. I can make an argument all day that alcohol is bad - but I'm still going to drink it - personal choice is what decides if the good outweighs the bad. Its too bad for her that she is watched every minute the blinds aren't closed.

    (ok i do care...)

    yeah SNGX1275 but she is (despite being a little bimbo tart) a role model for many teenagers and drunk, tobacco, drugs, etc is not an example to be setting.

    she is smart enough to promote good living for teens, smart enough to know not to be caught breaking her own rules, but still dumb enough to break those rules....

    Tom Baker, a British actor who played Doctor Who during the 70s and 80s was a drunk and a heavy smoker. On taking the part of the hero of a childrens' TV program he promptly stopped all of these things. He could not live with the thought that he might be spotted drunk in public and shatter the illusions of some youngster that he was the Doctor and a good guy. Despite the fact that he drank for many years after, he was careful to keep this to his own home and never in the public eye.

    One can argue that times are very different now from the 70s and 80s and that the media has evolved into a kind of god like entity which is all encompassing and all invasive. But that's all the more reason for role models for younger people to behave themselves more, not less...

    I would admit that perhaps we are blowing all of this a little out of proportion but I believe that Brittney gets her million$ not just for singing but for promoting herself as a certain kind of person, and that that person, due to her young years, has tastefully been chosen to be good and clean living. She needs to prove that she has earned that money in her actions and her attitudes...

    Actually the Legal age for tobacco in the US varies by state, eg. GA 17, FL 18, AL 19.
    Anyway, I could care less what or whom Brittany does or when.

    Britny clean?

    I mean does anybody really buy into that?
    Give me a friggin break.
    She dressed like a *****.
    Did u check out that concert on HBO.
    I did, my daughter WAS watching it, I mean WAS untill I saw that little **** prancing around. Then I made her turn it off, and I turned it on my TV in my room heheheh..

    Actually, she really isn't that hot either. If you get a close look at her, she is just full of makeup. I think the older she gets, the less attratctive.

    Brittany Spears is far from the little innocent school girl personna some people would have her live down. It's not just rumors.. It's common sense.

    She isn't like Barney the Dinosaur or Big Bird.. She's out there on stage selling her half-naked body to millions of fans while she sings about sex with a snake wrapped around her unmentionables. Not very innocent.. And she hasn't EVER put on a believable show of innocent. All of her songs are about things far more mature than most 11 years old girls consider... Surely.



    Phantasm... God bless you, man. This HAS to be the phrase of the month because it was just the funniest combination of words I've seen in awhile. LoL

    Well no, the main thing is Britney's gone on record saying she's this "clean" pure kinda person.

    Oh look at me kids, I don't smoke, drink, believe in sex before marriage & only believe in god. Follow my lifestyle.

    Now all this stuff is coming out to indicate otherwise. She's going on like Naomi Campbell - hey look at me I don't take drugs, I'm not *that* kind of model. Which it turns out she was.

    Now we see they are just talking crap & trying to appeal to whatever the moral majority sees as being right. It's just crap, they can do what they want, they just shouldn't talk about this stuff if their actions will never back it up.

    In Oz we call it the "tall poppy syndrome".
    But strewth.
    What right do we have to judge others?
    Well?
    There are worse things happenin's in the world @ the moment (besides some chick saying don't smoke--sounds like Yul)
    But in all fairness....who gives a ****

    Of course... I just slept with her. We didn't do anything since she was totally inclined to stay "innocent". We even stayed on our sides of the bed.. Innocent I tell you.
