    Why is everyone forgetting that Christina also took part in this. They only mention Britney. I guess it’s impossible for Christina to get attention when she’s next to Britney.

    I guess its because the kiss with Christina wasn’t that tongue sucking kind of kiss like with Brit. If you saw it it was just a peck and I guess that’s why people don’t care plus Christina’s image is sexier now with stripped so maybe people already expected that from her.Now Brit has played an innocent little girl and to see her kissing another woman is like wow! For me personally it was shocking but its not shocking on what Brit is doing.I love Madonna but Christina is trying to hard to be EXACTLY like Madonna. But anyway well said Bette!

    ^So true. It’s because Britney is interesting and Christina is simply not. The kiss is old news, why do people keep talking about it? Who cares that 11 year olds were watching? seriously.

    I agree with Bette when it comes to the kids, but that whole girl on girl kiss is so old already and over-rated… Now if Eminem kissed Ja-Rule, that would be another story.

    Ok people say they don’t want to talk about it and here you people are talking about it. and Britney didn’t slip the tongue I didn’t see any tongue so you are blind or something?

    The reason people only mention Britney is because MTV chose to cut to Justin Timberlake’s reaction while Madonna was kissing Christina. I knew this was going to happen the moment I watched the show live. it’s so funny how television works, and the other reason is because the kiss is not a far departure from Christina’s’s no big deal. she’s raunchy she’s dirty so when she does something like that it’s not shocking, but with Britney (before the kiss) she had a squeaky clean image so when she pulled that Madonna kiss everyone was like OMG, because that was not her image at the time.

    It wasn’t tacky. it was entertaining. 11 year olds should be open to same sex kisses. then then might not judge gay people whey they grow up when they are used to it.

    I think it’s pathetic that Stevie Nicks and Bette Midler are commenting on Britney and Madonna just to get some press time. It’s obvious that that Bette is trying to get attention because her album is coming out soon. Talk about talky, Bette was the one who in the early days wore clothes with her boobs flashing everywhere and her make up by the gallon like Christina. It’s hypocritical to call someone tacky when she’s probably going to do a stunt for her album or movie that’s coming soon. Half of the people on the board probably don’t know who she is and now they do.

    Well Britney’s and Madonna’s kiss was a little too much, it seemed that Madonna loved it and I’m sure after that kiss she wanted to go to bed with Britney lol So yeah it was more shocking from Britney because she has this other image before but Christina she does what she wants anyway and she don’t care. And maybe Bette didn’t say anything about Christina because she admires Christina’s talent so when you have talent they can’t really diss, it they do it looks awkward. And Bette makes a good point, a lot of 11 year old girls or boys were watching the show. Madonna is really sick!

    I agree that Bette is and always was tacky. I saw some special on her, and she looked like a transvestite. And she is one washed up hag. She must be promoting something.

    I’m surprised Bette would say something like that since she’s always had a big gay fan base. It really sounds like she’s saying here that homosexuality is so bad and threatening that we have to protect 11 year olds from every manifestation of it of it, even a kiss of the kind that straight people exchange all the time. 11 isn’t even that young! Hell, I was younger than that when I was flipping around the cable stations and was treated to Bette singing “great big knockers, that’s what keeps them coming back for more!” in her televised stage show. Crudeness is a huge part of Bette’s schtick, and it always has been.
