Britney Spears “Criminal” accused of glorifying violence
Britney Spears new music video for “Criminal” is spearheading all types of controversy. U.K. politicians bashed the pop diva last week for sporting a pistol as she flees a London-area building in the video. The politicians say the video glamorizes violence in wake of the terrible riots that occurred in London last month.
While some insist that Spears apologizes, the pop star appears to have no indication of doing so. In a statement released on Monday, Spears said:
The video is a fantasy story featuring Britney’s boyfriend, Jason Trawick, which literally plays out the lyrics of a song written three years before the riots ever happened.
Diane Abbott, a member of Parliament shot back, “It is only a music video, but it’s images like this, with pop stars glamorizing gangs, which means that some young people … get drawn in.”
Do you think Britney Spears touting a gun glamorizes violence? Should she apologize?

I personally don’t think any kind of media can distort or persaude the mind. Killers are born killers, pervs are born pervs. Nothing in music or its videos will change a mindframe. People worry too much, thats a problem

What the poop. Poor Brittany.
Did Rihanna’s man down video get banned?
Didn’t think so.
People are so ridiculous. I wish people would use their brain for once.

1)If you’re so concerned about your child, BE A GOOD PARENT
2)If that doesn’t work, cage ‘em. That’ll keep them safe from the world.
3) ….Godddd she’s cute
