Conservative columnist Ben Shapiro weighed in on the transformation of Britney Spears that most recently saw the singer kiss Madonna on stage at the Video Music Awards. Shapiro writes in Townhall.com: “What happened to Britney? She started to lose popularity. She was too old to maintain popularity as a ‘virgin.’ Society expected her to lose her virginity — now. So she lost it retroactively, by admitting that she had slept with longtime boyfriend Justin Timberlake years before. But it wasn’t enough. Society wanted a rebel, someone who could break the rules. Britney obliged by suggesting to Madonna that they swap saliva on MTV. Society doesn’t just demand rebellion and over-the-line behavior from its entertainers. It demands that girls (and boys) have sex before marriage, at younger and younger ages. It demands that young women (and men) ‘experiment’ with their sexuality. It demands that biblical values be kept out of schools and that condoms be kept in them. Society demands that dignity take a back seat to salaciousness.”
