    Oh and talking about your virginity isn’t a great way to sell a record?? I am sorry but Britney has to be the biggest damn hypocrite there is, she acts as if she has never done anything the least bit shocking to get people talking… Kissing Madonna at the Vma’s was desperate, telling everyone in the world that she lost her virginity was desperate, posing damn near nude in every magazine she has done to date, was desperate. She might want to look in the mirror before she accuses somebody of being ‘desperate’.

    the question was what she thought about the video……… and she responded…. she’s not depending on a controversial video about Justin to sell her records…. so yea.. she was right in what she said….. what she does with her own body in pictures is her choice.. Justin didn’t give her the choice…. as far as the Madonna performance.. that’s just what it was.. a performance…. the whole kissing between Britney and Christina both lasted no more than 5 sec…. of the whole performance.. do you people go to Broadway or watch TV, movies?? you will see far worse. isn’t this part of entertainment? she’s is commenting on one thing.. and you all blow it up!

    the question was about Justin!!! not her..! would you not be upset if someone used your image to sell records and promote his video and music… ? damn. why can’t you people see both sides of everything… your so close-minded and one-sided to everything…. If you had a reporter in your face asking you if your a virgin anymore thousands of times… hell…. you will tell them too.. just so they will shut the fu#k up…. and they have….. you don’t hear it anymore… !

    what is hilarious is how your famewhoring wannabe ass wants to comment on everything when you don’t know what the hell is going on.

    You’re totally right BRITNEY, I mean, Justin you are so pathetic and unoriginal. The only thing that was really missing on the “CMAR” video was when Brit found out that Justin was indeed cheating on her with Lance. *eek*

    She was a virgin until Justin so that’s that…she didn’t lie… her music just needed maturity. that’s really all it was. she couldn’t sell that sexy image to the little girls anymore so she had to change. she used herself, not Justin to sell records…I’m not a big Britney fan but Justin used Britney to sell his single about her and even made a video about her to boot…so it’s all Justin’s doing. Britney just spoke her mind in the interview. Justin was all about getting his music out to the public…business, baby. one thing’s clear: there are more Britney fans than Justin fans.

    So true. It’s a very smart idea to use a ‘ex-loved’ one who has more success than you will ever succeed just to sell your record also very desperate… but what’s new?

    I personally think that Britney’s comment to the “Cry Me A River” video was pretty good said. Justin wrote the song in personal experience, but show it to the world in a music video is very lame. He got his revenge by cheating on her as well, and he took the revenge too far with the video. He had no right doing that. If he actually cared about Britney’s feeling he wouldn’t have done that. But he was hurt and desperate too get his revenge and also sell his debut album and second single. People like Justin says that they don’t want to interfere private life and carrier are so fooled. Because they do that. But it’s all about selling records you now.

    Go Britney! I love this girl. She is finally venting. She’s always so sweet and won’t say anything bad about people and what does she get in return? She gets called fake. Now that she’s finally speaking her mind about her ex-relationship, people are calling her a hypocrite. I think everything she’s said is right. He was just trying to sell his record off of her name, and whether it’s hypocritical or not, she has the right to do the same. Actually, she’s not even making a song about him, so it’s not the same. Britney just continue to be honest and speak your mind girl. Don’t let everyone get away with talking ***** about you. Anyways, I got yo back, no matter what !

    she’s not my favorite but by the way she sounds in the article, she seemed a little disappointed. using their relationship just helped further her career, so in actuality, it helped her most than Justin because his first album is a dud. on the flip side, Christina must be steaming mad that the media is fixed only on Britney and Madonna’s kissing scene at the VMA’s. no one’s even mentioned X-tina…quite sad I must say because Christina is trying so hard (i think too hard) to break from the bubble gum era that she’s made herself look like a hooker compared to Britney spears. she’s made Brit look like the girl-next-door. I think whatever Christina was trying to do backfired. no doubt Christina is a great singer (sometimes her voice is just annoying), but her sexuality doesn’t match her overall appearance. to me she looks like a ‘tween’ trying to look grown up…Britney on the other hand looks more down to earth and natural looking…she may not be a good singer (the girl can’t sing) but girls like the way she looks…and that’s sexy in the good sense of the word, not trashy. I mean Britney dresses a little to provocative but there is no denying she’s got a great body.

    So true, Britney! Justin would’ve never gotten ANY exposure if it hadn’t been for her. Justin should be on his knees and praying for forgiveness for making him successful! Although, I wouldn’t go as far by saying Justin is “smart”…an idiot could use their ex (if their ex is famous enough) for their own greedy advantage. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to do that. You know what I mean?

    Go Britney, so true! I love it when she talks back, even if it’s only once in a while. She’s still too sweet to say anything too mean, but that’s part of what I love about her personality. She, along with her comments, remain classy while Justin comes off about as classy as a horse’s ass.
