I would date her. She's rich, hot, and nobody here knows her personally, so how do you know what kind of person she is?
I know her music sucks, but she still may be a beautiful person.

So you're suggesting that's Britney's public persona is simply all a ploy, an image, and that she's really smarter than she acts in front of the cameras, in magazines, etc?

This could very well be true, but I've certainly never heard an evidence to back it up. Acting as she does in public, regardless of whether or not she may be intelligent, simply makes her stupid, imo. If she's got the brains, why doesn't she act like it? Where's the justification/satisfaction in playing the part of the dumb blonde?

John, John....I always thought he was better than that.

Edit add: I would, in fact, blame friends of mine for dating someone who acted dumb to get attention. I think my friends deserve better than that. There's also a difference between enjoying someone's compan, using them for physical pleasure, and actually having a conversation with them.

I think most people are just surprised because John Cusack appears to be a reasonably intelligent guy--yeah, sure he deserves a gorgeous gal, but again, I think people expect others tp date/be attracted to people like themselves, thus we'd hope to see John with someone who's smart, witty, and cute.

No, she got that by playing the sexy blonde.

Open up her first album cover. What's the first thing you see? a crotch-shot. A mis-fold, perhaps? Maybe, but more likely, a strategy to market her sex appeal. THAT'S what's made her the money...the tours, the short tops, low pants, etc. No where in the equation did Britney ever make money for her political opinons or ridiculous comments. In fact, her popularity level has only decreased over the past few years as she's talked more and more openly to the media about such things.

Oh well, these celebrities date each other..whatever.

I can certainly understand a guy being attracted to her looks. Hey, at her age or any age I never had/ will never have the attention from guys that Britney has. But sorry, I'd rather have some dignity

And no, that comment has nothing to do w/ "jealousy"-it's my opinion. As for her intelligence - I don't think she's playing dumb in any of her interviews. Sure, she's probably at heart a good person, but what does everyone see and judge her on?

Shes probably jsut doing this for publicity - so ppl talk about her - draw attention to her - isnt she releasing an album soon?

Shes not that stupid - she knows how to draw attention to herself when she wants to

It's a pretty serious character flaw.
