Britney Spears statue Britney Spears statue

While we’re on the topic of Britney — in her first public comments about that monstrosity of a statue that was created in her image (and supposedly in honor of pro-life), the singer said she was shocked by it.

Spears says she was “dumbfounded” when she found out about the sculpture and saw the national controversy and press it generated. She also said she thought the idea was hilarious and not a serious attempt to display the beauty of birth.

“I think it’s the most hysterical thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” she told WENN. “My assistant and I were totally dumbfounded when we saw it. We couldn’t believe somebody actually did this.”

Spears said she had no interest in purchasing the sculpture for her Malibu, California home.

“No thanks. They can display it somewhere, but not in my beautiful home,” she said.

That would make strike three for the artist — first with the pro-choice people who are upset it is a pro-life monument; second with the pro-life people who are upset because they think it is degrading to their cause; and third with Britney. This is art?
