In her footsteps

I just saw news on CNN.com regarding what must surely be a major event. After all, it was on CNN!


Jamie Lynn Spears, the 16-year-old younger sister of train wreck troubled entertainer Brittany Spears, announced today that she is pregnant by her boyfriend, Casey Aldridge. Said the younger Spears,

“It was a shock for both of us, so unexpected,” she said. “I was in complete and total shock and so was he.”

Yeah, I mean, how did it happen?! I mean, we were only having sex, ya know? Who would have thought THIS would happen? Gosh!

But I digress…

That quote just cracked me up. I hope she’s more mature than her sister or that she changes her mind and gives that baby up for adoption. I don’t normally spout off about entertainers in the media, but this just caught me at the wrong time. I’m sick of idiotic behavior being watched and reported for the masses. And I realize I’m doing that same thing right now, but at least I’m not candy-coating it. I know she’s just a teen, but c’mon.

Question: Do you think media personalities should be held to higher standards since they are (like it or not) role models?

  1. I think this kind of statement by a minor should not be aired at all for any reason. And that at any age, celebrity status should not mean the intimate details of their lives should be aired for public entertainment.

  2. When you’re in the public eye, people are going to find out anyway. Celebrities these days don’t have private lives.

  3. As I told my wife when we heard it. – That is her family’s business not mine and if I were her father I’d clobber the boy then start working out how we would care for the baby with his parents ………. It may not be an illegal relationship but it didn’t sound like a good one.
