Quoth Maryland's First Lady:

Kendel Ehrlich, wife of the state's Republican Gov. Robert Ehrlich, was criticizing what she views as the entertainment industry's negative influence on youth, during a domestic violence prevention conference last week in the city of Frederick.

"Really, if I had an opportunity to shoot Britney Spears, I think I would," Ehrlich laughingly told the audience.

Let me just highlight the part in the first paragraph where it's pointed out that this was said during a domestic violence prevention conference. Oh yeah.

Later in the article, Britney is quoted as saying that if she wasn't in music, she'd either be a teacher "or an entertainment lawyer." Me and her have so much in common! I bet we could totally date. Or, you know, have a brief, awkward conversation that would end with me making some highly inappropriate joke.

I also kind of like her saying the following, although I'm sure people will regard it as highly disingenuous, about being a famous musician: "I just think we're all here to inspire each other. We're all equal. We just bounce off each other and show the world what we can do." Right on.
