Britney Spears Teaches Course in Car Seat Safety



By now you have probably heard about the latest drama in the Spears/Federline household. Typically, I wouldn’t waste my precious blog space on them, but I can’t let the latest display of utter stupidity go by without ranting about someone so high profile and influential to other inexperienced, naive, learning impaired young parents.

Yesterday, Britney Spears was photographed allegedly driving her honking big SUV with her baby on her lap. While it is not fair to judge someone on the basis of alleged actions, we could do some pretending and look at the incident from Spears’ position in the driver’s seat.

Now, imagine you’re inside of a honking big SUV, and you’re worried about a crowd of people armed with cameras, but you still took the time to wait for your bodyguard to show up with your nonfat venti strawberry crème Frappuccino. Why wouldn’t you also take the time to lock your doors, and give the paparazzi a nice shot of your trunk while you strapped baby safely into the car seat? Moreover, why didn’t the bodyguard, a person that Spears pays to protect her and her children, to whom I’ll give the benefit of the doubt in assuming that he is a fully functional, mentally stable adult, suggest the aforementioned course of action to her?

It’s easy to blame aggressive paparazzi, but wouldn’t driving away in a car while you are freaking out be even more dangerous for the precious innocent baby in your lap? And if Spears was so concerned for her safety why is the car window partially open?

So in review, two adults are in a car with a baby and because there are scary people taking pictures outside, they allegedly flee instead of pausing to put the baby in the car seat.

Spears is not even wearing her own seat belt. She can’t even pretend that her palates-toned left arm and motherly love would save them in a collision. Which, trust 50 state governments, it is not safe to hold a baby on your lap and drive.

Don't judge Brit. Babies make great airbags.

I'm in total agreement with you Sarah. This was utterly rediculous and irresponsible. And she doesn't look afraid to me either.
Just another reason to add to the growing list of "Why Britney is Stupid."
I've said all along, she's white trash and eventually she'll show that.

Phos--No wonder both your kids are brain damaged. And I don't recall being in on the decision to put an H on my name.

Sarah--From a girl that was baptized in a trailer over a popcorn bowl, I know from white trash. You can take the girl out of the twister magnet and feed her to record executives, but you can't guarantee there weren't any lasting effects from the smoking and drinking in utero.

Yeah, brain damaged - that's funny. Speaking of brain damage you sound like you were dropped on your haid a couple of times when you were a baby - any truth to that rumor???

Why yes. My negligent parents let my Uncle hold me, and after he dropped me once they gave me back to him. And he dropped me again.
