I really never thought I would come to Britney's defense...

I am shocked to find myself compelled to say what I am about to say.

But, I'm going to say it anyway.

Go look at this photograph of Britney spears and then come back.

http://news.yahoo.com/photo/070910/482/b1afabc1f597480c85dda90aeb81614a&g=events/en/111501celspears;_ylt=AkC3fUsXU8O_SuYTlr2NiRknHL8C

Okay, are you back?

Good.

Here's the thing. Say what you will about the really bad weave Britney has on her head, but THIS GIRL IS NOT FAT. She's not. She has breasts. She has hips. GOD FORBID a sex symbol in this country should have breasts and hips! She has TWO BABIES under that age of 2, does she not? Hurray for breasts and hips, I say.

No, she's not looking like a skeleton like Angelina Jolie or Ellen Pompeo (and yes, I KNOW Ellen Pompeo insists she is eating. Whatever. Maybe she is. She's still too thin.) Skeletons are NOT sexy.

What have we come too, in terms of body expectations, when, given SO MANY OTHER REASONS TO BEAT UP BRITNEY SPEARS (like, maybe, her failure to actual SING or DANCE which is, really, her job) - must we hold the standard of beauty to such a ridiculously high bar that we are going to say she is FAT?

So, I implore you, please - if you need to insult poor Britney - go after her voice, her poor choice in hair pieces, her lousy choreography, or her unimaginative lyrics, even her questionable parenting technique, but, really. Let's not say she's fat. Cause she's not.

She isn't fat at all actually, she just needed a stylist to put her in an outfit that worked with the boobs and hips. You can be sexy without being trashy!

I know.... my hubby likes girls with meat on them (lucky for me) and he always says "only a dog loves a bone..and he buries it" These girls who are skeletons scare me and that is why, eventhough my girl is still in the 75% for weight..we don't even joke about her being chunky..body image is too important! Plus, I love all her baby fat : )

She looked fine in terms of BMI, put the lack of energy in her performance? Just made me sad how exploited this woman has been her whole life.

Bravo sister! She is not fat, just untalented. And hell, I was just very happy to see she was wearing shorts.... ;P

You are righy, and will come to her defense as well. She may be trashy, yes, but certainly not fat! I wish people would stop focusing on fat or thin and started worrying about what is HEALTHY for their body type!
