Default Britney comments on Beatles at Grammys

Britney comments on Beatles at Grammys

http://www.suntimes.com/entertainmen...021108.article

Seems Britney Spears gave quite the play-by-play
analysis Sunday night as she watched the Grammy Awards. A source who was with her shared these comments from the troubled star during the 3½-hour broadcast:

Spears also made fun of Ringo Starr -- "Too bad the least talented Beatle was the one who showed up. ... They should have got Paul [McCartney]." But she said she'd "kill for" the hat John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono was wearing.

Warning: My post appears Britney bashing. Sorry to those that do not approve.

Anyway, all this coming from a woman who is mentally unstable. I do not believe she has the ability to go and criticize who has talent and who doesn't. Or, how much talent someone has. I mean, it's obvious that she is completely oblivious to the fact that she has none. If she thinks she has talent, good luck with that. In addition, I think she should spend less time wishing she had Yoko's hat and more time wishing for her children back...she does remember she has kids, right?

I read she was also commenting on Amy Whinehouse... oh well... who cares.. I hope Britney will become okay again soon as well... and just ignore these type of comments for now.. it's obvious she is quite confused.. which is just a sad situation

Because unlike some people Paul is a responsible adult who feels it's neccessary to attend court hearings that affect the custody and maintenance of his child. I'm just sayin'.

Like she knows talent? She's a Vegas showgirl with a good agent,
I don't think she's qualified to judge actual musicians.

Britney's just jealous because despite her drug problems, Amy Winehouse manage to perform better than she did at the MTV VMA's.

Has she even LISTENED to the Beatles and/or Ringo Starr? Probably not. And he has talent. She has some, but not a lot -- hey, someone who can belt out those songs and release a CD at 17 is neat to me.
She is very misunderstood and should not say anything on a subject she probably knows nothing about.

Correction... she HAD (some) talent !

And as far as releasing an album at an early age, what does that proove ? Heck, in France about ten years ago, they had a 4 year old todler record an album !

Somebody needs to mess with her mind (even more so), by telling her that Ringo wasn't in The Beatles, but was the Rolling Stone's kazoo player !

Anyways, even before she said all that... she's always validated my claims that she is a perfect example of why "preservatives" were invented !

“I like most of the places I’ve been to, but I’ve never really wanted to go to Japan, simply because I don’t like eating fish, and I know that’s very popular out there in Africa.”

See? Britney says plenty of stupid things.

Pity no one was there to reply "At least Rongo wasn't on the verge of falling down, while having trouble lip-synched to his own song !"

Ha, coming from someone like her... that's sooooooooooo rich !

That would be like Bush, making fun of Stephen Harper... for having canadian troops over in Afghanistan.

"Least talented" indeed !

Like she's become the Micheangelo of pop divas all of a sudden ?

Barabara needs to go clean Britney's clock out !

Oh, and she could "kill"' for Yoko's hat ?

Well, I for one would "kill"... to live in a Spears-free world !
