What in the Blue Hell...?

Linda usually handles the media gossip in our sisterhood of blogs, but I have to post something about this. An artist has created a monument to Britney Spears giving birth nude on a bearskin rug. WTF???

"Momument to Pro-Life: The Birth of Sean Preston" apparently is a tribute to Britney's putting her pop star career on hold to embrace motherhood. Um... it's a little easy to put your career on hold when you're in your early 20s and worth MILLIONS (it was gajillions, but K-Fed is going through her cash faster than I can tear through a bag of Nacho Cheesier Doritos).

I don't know what pisses me off more - the tribute to freakin' Britney (do we want our daughters to aspire to white trash?) or the "Monument to Pro-Life" title.

Wow. I'm really irked. I think I need to go drink some coffee so I can rant on this properly.

I was astounded. I was like, who the hell would decide to build a monument to Britney Freaking Spears? For having a baby? WTF?

I'm still shaking my head. I just don't know what more to rant about because my brain has been permanently addled.

If I just look at it as a sculpture, no "B.S." references, it's vaguely interesting. But the semantics intended by the sculptor are preposterous and there's no execution. She doesn't look strong here, and her face looks bored. It's not at all maternal looking, it looks like she's trying to induce labor, if you get my drift. Of every woman who could be immortalized in motherhood, why her, and why does he think so?

Thank you for putting into words what rage took away from me, Linda. And yes, what was with the face?
