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?
