Must Britney Spears be the whipping girl to all of us disenchanted by teen crush pop? Matching her and Christina Aguilera together as a rivalry is ineffective. It seems as long as there are girls who achieve puberty, boys with overnight hormones, and both desiring each other, the market lives. Former teen idols never youthen. They just become adults. With love comes heartbreak and the break-up tune to make the young girls cry for being young women in training. Love comes the exploitation of eternity and the love of a lifetime. Why whip Britney? She whips the guys and gals.
