We couldn't agree LESS!
The Parents' Television Council has chosen Glee and Britney Spears as their new targets and are labeling last week's tribute episode the worst show of the week.
Their website criticizes the show for "pandering" a tribute to Britney, who they deem to be a "toxic teen role model." They go on to add:
"Perhaps most troubling is the deification of a troubled popstar into a symbol of empowerment and self-esteem. Considering her stints in rehab, her very public breakdowns and her questionable parenting skills, there is absolutely no way Spears should be considered a role model. The producers of the show can spare us the old song-and-dance about fallen celebs turning their lives around."
Wow! Could you all be more narrow-minded? Your prejudices are just so wildly off-base!
Sure, Britney has had her share of problems, but despite your disdain for her comeback, she has turned her life around and that is a message worth sending out to kids!
Besides, the real message of the show is to be true to who you are and feel empowered by your own image of yourself! As far as we can see, that the best advice we can give kids these days!
Shame on you, PTC, for thinking any differently!
