Lisa found this great quote in the Rolling Stone cover story on Britney Spears. The story is full of all kinds of juicy tidbits from anonymous sources, like the fact that Britney actually lost it at 14 (which she denies), but overall it's pretty depressing. She's clearly dealing with mental illness and there's nothing in her current life that will help that situation.
If Britney was really who we believed her to be — a puppet, a grinning blonde without a cool thought in her head, a teasing coquette clueless to her own sexual power — none of this would have happened. She is not book-smart, granted. But she is intelligent enough to understand what the world wanted of her: that she was created as a virgin to be deflowered before us, for our amusement and titillation.
