I’m not sure, exactly, how our culture has devolved to the point where the unplanned pregnancy of a 16-year-old starlet sibling is cover story material. Or how the mother of said sibling could allow her maternal instincts to be so crippled to think that her teenage daughter’s impending maternity is anything but private. Or how, in some twisted way, this all seems like a family crisis turned into a publicity stunt. Or how, in this day and age, teenagers still don’t realize that if you’re going to have sex, use a fucking condom. But what I do know is that this isn’t a “story.” And for God’s sake, has no one in the Spears family every watched and after-school special?
p.s. Fitting that this “news” should be in “OK” magazine when it is in fact nothing of the sort. Irony never gets old.
