Mark Binelli of Rolling Stone magazine chatted with Norah Jones for their Women in Rock issue. Asked about her thoughts on Britney Spears and her pop peers, Jones said, “She came out when I was in college, and I was a little bit disgusted. I remember seeing pictures of her when she was, like, fifteen, and they were pornographic. That really disturbed me. Back then, I didn’t know anything about the music industry. All I knew was that I liked Billie Holiday and I was gonna be a jazz pianist and a singer, damn it! I was a total nerd. Now, I mean, I don’t listen to that kind of music, but I don’t have a problem with it. She’s grown up now, she can do what she wants.”
