Just As I Thought


While flipping channels tonight, I came across Britney Spears live from Miami in high definition. I lingered because what I saw mostly was muscular guys simulating sexual moves… I was uninterested in Britney writhing in her underwear. (I’d make comments about her sluttiness, but that seems like old news.)
Then I realized that whenever they showed footage of the “mosh pit” at the edge of the stage, the young people there were almost motionless, not even so much as swaying to the music. Were they just brainwashed automatons? Hypmotized by her sexual escapades? By her undies? By the attempts to be the new Madonna, more than a decade after interest waned in that persona?
