Britney Spears Actually Says Something Smart: “In This Business You Make A Deal With The Devil”

“I think it’s important to look good and feel good about yourself, but I got both ways with it. I feel it’s cruel how the world puts so much emphasis on our looks. I was just watching ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ and I see Kim and what she went through when she was pregnant — the tabloids were so mean to her because she was big. At one point on the show she was upset and said something like, ‘I would be lying if I said that the criticism from the paparazzi while I’ve been pregnant hasn’t taken a toll on me.’ And I was like, ‘Bless your heart,’ because I remember that time. First of all you are already emotional and then the paparazzi are taking pictures of you pregnant. That should be the time [in you life] when your body is the most treasured. I loved being pregnant for so many reasons, not to mention the sex is awesome then. But in this business you make a deal with the devil. I’ve learned you kind of have to go with it. What I do calls for me to look good. People expect that. I kind of take it as my job.”

Britney Spears isn’t known for thoughtful commentary on, well, anything, so I was pleasantly surprised to read her criticism of the entertainment industry in the latest issue of InStyle. I would have expected Brit to say something more like “I LOOOOOVE doing 6,000 crunches a day!” But she shows a lot of empathy here for the vicious beauty and weight pressures faced by female celebs. It is, of course, a subject she knows all too well. Even if I understand what women like Britney and Kim get out of their “deal with the devil,” it’s still extremely sad this deal has to exist.
