Britney Says... Pop Superstar Discusses Her High-Brow Faves
Britney writes about her exposure to high art and literature. The gallery is meant to help her grow as an artist, and expose her to new audiences. She doesn't want to perform for teenagers all her life, she's getting older after all. Features pictures of Britney reciting lyrics and poems. She wants to be taken seriously as a PERSON.

I'd rather read Aryan websites than to reread your post rscham.

Subtle humor runs the risk of often being TOO subtle ...

Yeah, Elim, that's what I thought. Humour should be funny.

OK, so it didn't go over so well. I thought it was hilarious; I do think of Britney as an airhead.

Umm, Britney does culture? When's Britney going to do stripping?

I'd like Britney to discover Mozart -- one pop musician appreciates another.

When's Britney going to do stripping?

Isn't that what she's been doing? Lame stripping, I admit, but not much worse than the music.

It made me giggle like a schoolgirl, rschram, if that makes you feel any better. Plus, I had never heard of Ed Ruscha, The Jasmine Minks, or The Associates, and now I have. And I'm glad I did.

"Anyway, it made me want to find out more about the poet, and it turns out he's a really interesting historical American character. They ought to teach about him in High School. Or do a History Channel special on him or something. That would be so cool. I really love the History Channel."

Priceless.

It is a little known fact, that Ms Spears is an expert in semiconductor physics.

Why are you all so mean to Miss Spears?
