Britney Spears shows it off

Quite often I would have a nightmare about this particular situation. You go to work or a social gathering and discover that your private parts are exposed. However, that embarrassment is now a new reason to be featured in the news. Over the past month influential teen stars like Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, and Lindsey Lohan have all gone out without panties and given the media crotch shots. To me this is a bit much and I can’t help be feel sorry for someone who thinks that giving an indecent crotch flash will generate a positive response.

Note: I am not going to post the crotch shots that are circulating around the internet. The photos included are enough bad taste for one day.

Moreover, I can’t help but remember my female students who would be influenced by this behavior and show off their wale tails and cleavage at every opportunity. The lack of positive female role models in the media is sad. However, their prevalence also points to a deeper question; what do women think makes them valued? Is it an education, emotional stability, self confidence or self respect? Or is it something creeper and sleazier that they feel has a broader social appeal?

    IS TRULY CREEPY WHEN ALL YOU SEE IS SKIN AND NO CLASS, WHICH MEANS SELF RESPECT AND RESPECT OF THE FANS OF ALL AGES.

    The media projected image of beauty – no, not even beauty… but attractiveness, I suppose – makes me sick. It’s disgusting.

    looks to me paris wants & is getting some of that!

  5. November 29, 2006 at 8:46 pm

    I’m thinking this is all she has left — if in fact she was ever in posession of anything at all worth mention….

    Does not even look flattering. She looks still swollen after just giving birth…. I am embarrassed for her, really. In that green dress where she is letting it hang all out, looks like she is still nursing her baby.

    I completely agree with you. Women complain about the lack of respect coming from men, and yet female celebrities and role-models for young women are next to terrible. The only positive note is that so many negative influences truly reveal the true beauties out there. Young women with a sense of worth and decency are rare, and with all the negative female-based media, the girls out there who DO have some self-respect become much more apparent.

    They are just out of control. I feel sorry for them. Where did real sexy go? Less is more, just a hint. Good luck to them finding a guy who will ever treat them well. To be respected you need to be respectable!

    As i see it, it goes like this: precious/valuable things are kept in a secluded place, they are not for general exposure and should be kept covered. Otherwise, they are just like tomatoes for sale in the wet market, barely laid down on the floor for the customers or passerby. Yeah, arent celebs supposed to be role models for something? Well, may be she’s trying to be a role model for some cleavage augmenting meds. Just my cents.

    Very digusting!! I feel so sorry on how low Brit came down to.Where are her morals? Where are her two children? Apperantly she thinks all this is classy, but sorry it’s trassshhyy..yuk! Eventually her priorities are hanging out with the not so role model Paris Hilton, and not being at home with her two lovely children. This is making the CPS look at it as being an unfit,drunk parting mother, who has her nana’s acting as the mothers for her two son’s, while mommy is out showing her pu@@@!
    These kids are going to look at these pictures 20yrs down the road,and are going to ask Brit some very tough questions.
    I wish Brit all the luck in the world..she needs it.

    Please sprare me the moral act. First Britney is an adult she is free to express herself as she wishes. That is after all what America is all about. The very last time I checked we do live in a free nation. The human body is a beauitful work fo art. One would think that someone that owns a photograph blog would see this. it kills me to see crap like this. This is the type of mind set that not only holds back our nation but sends us back 100 years in time. I say get the hell of her back..if you do not like it don’t look at the pics. I think people like you miss the point of the act. You miss the point of the crotch shots and whom she did them at. The camera-nazis have made her life a living hell..they get off on making her life hell…no matter if she is famous or not she has a right to privacy and they never give it to her, or any other famouse person. So, as she said, if you are going to take pics of me like this..I will give you something to take.There is nothing wrong with adult woman or men dressing like that. Their is nothing wrong with nudity. The problem is the so called sunday arm chair ass wipes.

    I am not sure what her children will say when they see this type of smut and inappropriate attire on their mom…even with other men and women who chose to wear these types of outfits and expose something off.

  18. November 30, 2006 at 9:12 am

    “The lack of positive female role models in the media is sad”
    Nobody should be looking for role models in the media.

    Those 2 give pale white chicks a bad name.

  19. November 30, 2006 at 10:37 am

    another case of holier than thou trains of thought. if a grown adult wants to wear tops that show cleavage…who cares. if she doesnt want to wear panties…who cares. if shes wants to stay out till 6 in the morning…who cares. im sure she has a professional nanny at home caring for her children.

    this means nothing regarding women, their responsibility, their careers, etc. it means britney is proud of her body and wears what shes wants.

    for those young girls that look up to her maybe its an example of what not to do. maybe you want to be like that…i dont know. who knows…maybe you want to find more approriate role models.

  20. November 30, 2006 at 10:54 am

    If you dress like porn you are porn. That is there right do so I suppose, but it’s porn nonetheless.

  21. November 30, 2006 at 1:32 pm

    I have no problem with Britney getting her tits or crotch or whatever it was she got out if she wants to so long as I don’t have to look at it.

    She’s either very bright and manipulating the media or she’s a bit of a desperate saddo. Either way, I feel quite sorry for her, if she’s desparate it must be grim, if she’s that bright it must be really rubbish doing the kind of job that’s so mindeless you have to get ahead by showing the world your arse.

    Ah well. Each to their own…

    BTW, I’m sure the body is a beautiful work of art but anybody who wears a mini and no nicks out on the town is either a moron a bit of a ho or well aware of what they’re doing. A simple act of teen or is she 20 now, rebellion.

    As for the trend, t’was ever thus, Baroness Thyssen did it in the 80s – she had to hitch up a long ball gown to show the world she was wearing no nickers and in the 18th centurary or was it the 17th there was a trend for being painted by people like Van Dyck with one tit out. Exactly the same scenario 3/400 years ago – I wish I could remember numbers.

    Should add there’s nothing wrong with going commando but showing the entire world your arse or worse beef curtains is tasteless in the extreme even if it is your way of telling the paparazzi to eff off!

    Thanks for your time,

    Cheers

    my thought on this kind of low-life behavior is this: even though this threesome of women are all “aduts” not teens or younger kids, where the hell are all the “true friends, managers, and CONCERNED LOVING FAMILY” who SAY they care about their loved ones but yet let them fly continuously out of control embarrassing themselves, “women”, and making our country continue to look like the greedy, thoughtless, low-life fake religious people we seem to be. and what’s even more pathetic, is the news media and public “love” this trio and think their “the thing”. to me, no news on these three would be good news and they’d go away.

  30. December 2, 2006 at 2:59 pm

    Grow up everyone! It’s not Britney that has a problem it’s the seething, harassing hordes of happy snappers who scrounge their living out of trying to expose celebrity frailties. Celebs are ordinary people whose lives get screwed up by media attention. It’s no big deal if an attractive girl chooses to be less than subtle about how she displays her ‘charms’ (ok it may not br classy but, hey, so what?) – or indeed if she happens to choose to wear no underwear…it’s a pity so many paparazzi-vultures circle these poor girls in psycho-emotional turmoil.
    The sooner folks get off this tedious celebrity kick, and the sooner the lascivious media grows up and stops investing in seedy, provocative ‘photo scoops’ – pandering to the lowest common denominator of voyeurism in society – profiting from people’s emabarassing faux pas…And the sooner those holier than thou ‘I’m disgusted’ types (what a pain in the **** they are) get off their soap box – those who probably have no idea what it’s like not to be able to let your hair down without a swarm of vermin around you scrounging for tabloid ‘tit bits’…the sooner all society will be better off and begin to think abour something more serious.

  31. December 2, 2006 at 10:28 pm

    I think that after two kids and a failed marriage, Spears, who has just recently filed for divorce wants to show herself and her fans that she is still the pop-star who parties and attracts all attention to her. that everyone is still crazy about her body although she gained weight and has “nursing boobs”… She is an adult. She is clearly responsible and was obviously aware of what she was doing. don’t blame her for dressing in an innapropriate way. Blame the media who jumped on the oppurtunity to snap photos and who make her misarble-enough life harder for her at every chance they get!

    On VH1 they have a slogan regarding their celeb-reality shows:
    “Get a life – theirs.”

    Unfortunately too many people are doing so. What craziness. I cringe at the attention this gets and the people who are interested in it. This has given birth to another group “People who are interested in the people who are interested in this.” It’s like we’re in some bizarro Russian doll world where each layer begets another layer.

    Person A: Did you hear the latest about Britney?
    Person B: No and I don’t care. Why do you care?
    Person A: I don’t really care, why do you care that I care?
    Person B: I think you do care. Why do you care that I care that you care?
    Person c: Did you hear the latest about Britney?
    Persons A & B: We don’t care. Why do you care?

    What kills me is that people commenting on this very blog and others on the net have nothing better to do with their lives then to bash Britney. What is it..are you jealous? Do you feel bad that you have nothing better to do with your sorry ass lives then to bash an adult that is free to express herself as wishes? If you stop trying to be arm chair experts long enough you would be able to see that Britney is free to dress as she wishes. That is after all what America is all about. That is what freedom is all about. We do not have a morals police in this nation. The human body is a work of art. Britney is a very sexy woman and I tip my hat to her for doing things HER way and not allowing the arm chair bastards of this neocon nation control what or whom she is. Now you have people like Rosie O’Donnell trying to play judge and jury. I used to like O’Donnell..now she is a disgrace. I say dress as you wish Britney..if people do not like it tough shit. Hey I have an idea why isnt anyone saying anything about the ass wipe camara guy who took the pic. NOOOO lets not go their right you moral bigots..is that what you will say now? It is not his fault that he took the pic and sold it to the media now is it…I say bull shit!

    You’re an idiot, dude. This was a totally calculated move on her part. Think of all the actresses who have managed to get out of cars, with photographers waiting, and yet nobody has pictures of their vaginas. Yet Brit shows hers like four times in a week. “Oops, I clit it again…”

  37. 38 sirrion
    December 4, 2006 at 12:29 am

    oh yea and I am sure you’re the expert right? Do you workj for Britney? Do you hang out with Britney? Where you there? if your answer to any of that is no..then you’re the idiot pal. The camera nazi who took the pic has even came out and stated who hired him and that Britney had no knowledge of it. He went so far as to give witnesses to back up his story. I personally feel that Britney is free to do as she wishes. That is after all why we live in America. I think the people bitching are jealous. Jealous because they will never have the back done to be themselves. I also feel that it is a sad time in the history of our nation when idiots like yourself have nothing better to with your time then act like an the expert you are not.

  38. December 4, 2006 at 11:45 am

    The question of the day is, what do Britney Spears and George Bush have in common. The answer? Down below (ahem…)

  39. December 5, 2006 at 2:37 am

    What i see is that they’ve succeeded in what they set out to achieve. It’s all for the publicity. As they say, bad publicity is still publicity. Perhaps it’s another Paris Hilton-inspired ploy to play with the paparazzi. And judging from all these buzz that’s going on, sex (however distasteful) still sells.

  40. December 5, 2006 at 8:20 am

    Once the genie is out of the bottle, it’s hard to get it back in. Brit’s going to have a hard time getting any sort of respect back after this run as pop-queen-of-the-week is over.

  41. December 5, 2006 at 8:49 am

    It may be a publicity stunt. Or she needs a dedicated psychological consultant. (:

    Britney is a Skank (note the capital S).
    She bangs K-flop and falls in love with her first orgasm, marries it and her stock drops by 70% pops out a tot and her stock drops another 10% (now it’s just another worn out playground, scarred as a bonus) then, whoa! another tot drops another 10% leaving her stock worth down 90% from what it once was. (admit it, she was keyword “was” hot, you’d have done her) So now her value is about 10%. The way I see it, the only thing that may notice I say “may” bring her back another 40-50% is going from popstar to porn queen. unless of course, she keeps showing us for free then it’s down another 10% leaving her non-value added. Britt, either close them or open them all the way up. The indecision and bald, scarred cootch peeks are nasty. (nasty in the “old school” definition)

  43. December 6, 2006 at 7:39 am

    It is all about publicity.. and to be honest, she made it one more time! She has all the attention on her side!

  44. December 7, 2006 at 8:07 pm

    i don’t care!!. she’s goood!. It doesn’t mean that she has to stay home with kids all the time. Every single mom goes out and its ok, but when Britney goes out , that no goood? Whats wrong with you people? Leave her alone.

  45. December 8, 2006 at 12:41 pm

    When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.

    When life leaves you brainless, you flash them the crotch to make ‘em forget.

    December 10, 2006 at 8:19 pm

    Why in the hell should she live up to be a role model? She is an adult and is free to live her life as she feels she should live it. if parents are raising kids to hold singers up as their role model, and not the likes of Dr. Martin Lurther King, Jr., then the parents need to have their mind checked..do their jobs..or not be parents. Britney Spears is not the issue it is the camara nazi’s and parents not doing their fucking jobs

  51. December 12, 2006 at 1:30 am

    Well, at least she can work as a negative example. “See, honey, this is why you don’t want to be a pop star…”

  52. December 12, 2006 at 1:31 am

    My husband adds that she’s actually an EXCELLENT role model…for whoredom.

  53. December 12, 2006 at 2:02 am

    honestly..its disgusting. not the fact that she she wasn’t wearing underwear but just the fact that its all over the internet. WHat a pathetic race we are.

  54. December 12, 2006 at 3:52 am

    I know I’ve already commented on this but I say we acknowledge that she’s issued a statement about it on her site and start to let it go!

  55. December 14, 2006 at 6:07 pm

    I wrote an entire paper on the lack of female role models today. It’s sad, because girls grow up thinking all they’re worth is to be decorative or skanky and have no conceptive of using their sexuality in a safe and powerful way, or that they can use their brains and wits for something more lasting. Plus, it gives us brainy nerdy girls a harder time in the world.

  56. December 20, 2006 at 3:25 am

    I wonder how it feels when you’re not wearing an underwear?!

  57. March 3, 2007 at 9:04 pm

    I know it’s ridiculous. A shaved head is no big deal yet the media cannot accept any individuality.

  58. August 15, 2010 at 8:00 pm

    Hi britney carry on your great attitude….i really love you being your fan….
