Oops! Britney Utters Some No-No's
Cover those ears. Britney Spears's third studio album, "Britney," is due in stores on Nov. 6, and it contains a few curse words that she knows some parents may not want their children to hear. One is the name of a very bad place, and the other a homonym for that thing that beavers build. "I guess they just shouldn't buy the album," Spears responded when asked about the language on "Britney" during a conference call last week. "When I say 'hell' and 'damn,' I say it out of frustration in my songs. It's not, like, a normal term of endearment that I use all the time." Meanwhile, the pop princess said that the way girls look up to and emulate her is highly flattering, even though the youngsters should not necessarily try to copy the sexy way she dresses on stage. "It's honestly up to their parents to explain to them that I'm a performer, and that when I'm on stage, that's my time to perform and express myself, that I don't wear those clothes to the supermarket or to a ball game," said Spears. She can currently be seen on an enormous billboard in New York's Times Square, dressed very much like the late Elvis -- in a studded white leather jumpsuit with plunging neckline.
