Britney Spears' "Mind-Blowing" Baby

Spears pregnancy is 'mind-blowing'

Britney Spears gave an interview to USA Today about her pregnancy and upcoming motherhood.

She talks about being 'introverted' before she met Kevin Federline. Huh? Has she not seen her own videos and magazine photoshoots? Was that someone else who kissed Madonna live on television? It must have been some other young singer who ripped off the better part of her flesh-colored outfit while performing as well. I'm trying to remember the last introverted person I knew who would even consider doing these things except at gunpoint.

As the character Inigo Montoya says in The Princess Bride: "You keep using that word, but I do not think it means what you think it means."

She also talks about her decision to have a C-section instead of delivering naturally and how it's going to be 'mind-blowing' to have a child. I agree. It's a huge responsibility, and I've seen very little to indicate that she's grown-up and mature enough to handle such an incredible responsibility. Maybe she's changed over the last few months, but her actions to date really don't indicate a person that truly appreciates motherhood and the selflessness required to be a truly good parent.

Her eagerness to duck the pain of childbirth gives me pause to wonder how many other shortcuts she's interesting in taking when it comes to the raising of this child. She says that 'motherhood is going to help [her] not be influenced so much.' That's just absolutely ridiculous. You don't become a mother to work out your issues: all you end up doing is passing them on to your children. She should have had the sense to get her head on straight before getting pregnant, not hope that her pregnancy will get it on straight for her.

I hope she's done some serious maturing while she's been contemplating the birth of her child, but this interview isn't exactly inspiring a lot of confidence...
