    A few years ago, I'd have said that Kevin Federline (the husband) was a lucky guy... but I won't be saying that now. Anybody want to take bets on how long it lasts? I'll put 10 rep points on 3 months! :p

    I don't understand the fascination with who she marries or how many times she gets married...

    the media really needs to deal with other topics than following britney and co round and passing judgement... aren't they after all the perv's who are feeding consumers voyeuristic tendencies regarding celebs :eek:

    Personally, I don't care about Britney's personal life nor do I care about her professional life. She is, however, an example of our society [specifically the American one] where younger people get married at the drop of a hat. This happens to both those people who are rich and those who are not.

    It does seem, however, that to those in Hollywood [and the music industry] that being married is no more significant than simply dating someone. Maybe it's the rich version of going steady? They meet, date 3 months, get married, stay married for say 2 years and then get divorced. But, hey, they're rich with nice pre-nups and they haven't lost anything. If anything they got publicity!

    I really do hope she has a great marriage but I wouldn't be at all surprised to see it fail.

    [rant] Unfortunately, she is a model for many younger girls to emulate... much the same way Madonna was a model for her. "With great power comes great responsibility" is what they say (at least in Spiderman they do). :p But I believe that it's true, and BS isn't even attempting to be responsible. She gets married while she's drunk and annuls it the next day, she pulls a guy away from his girlfriend and child and marries him when she could easily date/marry most any one she chooses... it's as if she's going through a period of wanting to shock everyone. Meanwhile, many of the younger girls who look up to her are getting a bad lesson in relationships. It's a shame.

    I really hate the following she has but when the post pictures of the way she really looks with out all the make up and everything is great...

    Beauty is before the makeup...Makeup just accentuates it

    Unfortunately, it's rather in vogue in our civilization to idolize those who are seen as richer/more powerful then themselves. Seems rather weird to me, though it doesn't seem uncommon, with many people...

    Someone could probably end up making a fortune selling a sock on Ebay and claiming one of these celebs wore it ;)

    When I took media studies last year, we had mention of reasons people interact with media content. One was for companionship... tbh, the whole idea seemed somewhat creepy to me.

    You're more right than you may know. Recently, an eBay auction was online selling a piece of gum that supposedly belonged to Britney Spears. It was in the hundreds of dollars before it was pulled... probably because it's legitimacy couldn't be proved. :rolleyes:
