I’d like to believe that Britney Spears is clever enough to exploit the Virginia Tech massacre for publicity. It wouldn’t be right (on any level) but it would indicate that the paparazzi-pursued pop diva possessed low animal cunning. Which is a form of intelligence. Alas, the fact that Ms. Spears wore a VT sweatshirt before shooting a shooting sequence in the video for her new video Perfume 2 is nothing more than a coincidence. The ensuing brouhaha tells us more about gun control mania and the movement’s media minions than anything else. “Britney Spears has once again chosen to wield a gun for a music video – and this time she’s filmed scenes with a pistol moments after wearing a Virginia Tech sweatshirt,” huffingtonpost.com huffs. “The hoodie comes from an American university that saw 32 people killed and 17 wounded in 2007, in the deadliest shooting incident by a single gunman in US history.” A gun in a music video! A VT hoodie worn off set! C’mon guys. Get a life.
