|Britney Spears insists she is a role model for young girls despite recent revealing magazine covers and her new album with sexually explicit lyrics, the British Broadcasting Corp. said Sunday. In a radio interview to be broadcast Monday, the 21-year-old pop star said parents should not be worried if their children want to copy her.|
"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."
The BBC said Spears defended recent magazine photos, saying, "I've just recently done some covers that are a little bit explicit and sexy. And a lot of people do think this is very over-explicit, but that's their opinion." Spears, who kissed Madonna at the MTV Video Music Awards, also talked about her relationship with the singer, saying there was a special connection between them.
"She's like my godmother in a way. I don't listen to that many people, I'm a very stubborn person. When someone tells me not to do something, I do it, that's just my rebellious nature," Spears said.
The star, criticized for drinking and smoking in public, urged people to be realistic.
"If you go out and have red wine with your dinner it's like, 'Oh my gosh, she's drinking, Britney was caught smoking.' You know, people have to realize you're human just like anyone else and people have to give you a break a little," she said.
I have never really liked her image and I like few of her songs. :-/ When she first got real big and stuff, my 6 yr old wanted 'Britney this and Britney that' but I didn't get it for her. I thought that my daughter she have a role model with a little bit more modesty, if ya know what I mean?
I hope with all my heart ..that my daughter never thinks as this girl as a role model she s far from it...i am sickend by her actions...campared to how she first started...it is a shame... :(
Yea sad to say, but her image has completely gone down the toilet. I am very grossed out about that kiss with her and Madonna to. Oh well, anything to make the headlines. :
And I've heard that such actions (female-female kissing) are now kinda 'popular' within celebrities to do on some shows.
Anything for being in the spotlight, I guess...
YEs...All for money...what is sad part is that the ppl ARE BUYING this junk..and Liking watching this girls kiss over each other now that is gross..WE ARE keeping them rich..it is Our fault not theres...If we didnt buy spears junk and maddonas and Agiliria ...They would be in the guitter with there minds....
It has been said best. But I find that Britney is just starving for attention, but unfortunately, she is going about it the wrong way. I remember reading an article somewhere about some photos she took while in another country and she blamed it on the energy drink she was drinking. Can someone please give a reality check here? : She couldn't even own up to the fact that she took the photos of her own free will. <_<
