Showbiz Tonight on CNN Headline news channel had an interesting debate tonight which arose from Britney Spears' performance on the MTV VMA's this past Sunday. Basically they were discussing how various tabloids, entertainment bloggers and critics were blasting Britney's look, saying she appeared out of shape, etc. In compared to the past she may have, but by all means she didn't look terrible. The performance was what looked bad.
The main point they raised was that if a male performer like Justin Timberlake had gone on stage and had a few more extra pounds than usual, nobody would say anything. Is this true? Another guest on the show said that women are always more critical of other women.
So since it seems Gather is predominantly female, I figured I'd toss this article out there for discussion. Is there too much pressure on Hollywood females these days to look "in shape" and have a certain image? Is it hurting the way kids grow up and how they believe they have to look as they grow up? And most importantly does Britney Spears deserve to be kicked while down? :)
