    Madonna didn't let having kids stop her!!

    Britney can learn a great deal from Madonna!!

    I agree with everything except the "sing more" part. I wouldn't mind if she disappeared to be a mom.

    Britney Spears Nude In Subway!

    A poster showing a naked and pregnant Britney Spears is no longer banned from Tokyo, Japan's subway system after officials decided it isn't "too simulating" for young people after all. The picture, from the cover of the August edition of Harper's Bazaar magazine, shows the singer naked, but protecting her modesty by covering her breasts with her arms and crossing her legs at the knee. Tokyo Metro bosses had ruled the poster too rude and a threat to the nation's young, but in a turnaround they now accept its intention is not to be sexually explicit but to show a happy mother. The poster was to go on show censored below Spears' elbow, with a statement that reads, "We apologize for hiding part of a beautiful image of a mother-to-be." However, it will now be displayed uncensored as originally planned. Metro spokesman Tatsuya Edakubo says, "Our earlier request to cover the photo from the waist down was because of nudity, not because we had anything against pregnant women." The snap of Spears will appear in the Japanese edition of Harper's Bazaar in October, and is backed by a large advertising campaign across the country.

    Japan: that's peculia?

    Go to any bookstore and newstand in Japan and they have those Hentai Comics with hardcore xxx sex showing girls in school-girl outfits having intercourse (usually with a hint of violence);

    it's perfectly natural to see men and women of all ages standing right there and reading one of those publications out in public and they get upset over a Britney Spears semi-naked poster?

    That's the worst kind of racial generalisation one can come across. Have you ever been to Japan, j7wild? Have you ever been to EVERY bookstore in Japan and saw that in every single one of them hentai comics are being sold? If not, then you are basically saying, without any solid proof, that hentai comics dominate the Japanese literature/culture, which is not true.

    It's like saying all Italians are shorties not taller than 5 ft 5 with dark-coloured skin and hairy all over.

    As for the controversy behind the poster, it can happen anywhere - in Japan, in Africa, in Europe, in Australia or in the US. It's not that because a country's conservative in general. For the subway system authority, putting the picture of a nude woman up in public places is exposing themselves to the risk of receiving complains from those who may be offended. They made a choice and realised later on that they overreacted.

    Not a big deal. It seems to be one only because the woman in the picture happens to be Britney Spears.

    yes I've been to Japan several times and I seen those adult Hentai comics being sold;

    and I seen school kids and working men and women just standing in front of the racks of these comics reading them as if they were at a public library;

    and these Hentai comics do dominate the Japanese culture both in print and in anime dvd and in video games from the softcore to the extremely explicit.

    As a matter of fact, they have video games that are made in Japan and only sold in Japan for the Playstation 2 and XBox 360 because of the explicit content dealing with scandily dressed and nude women and violence.

    No, you're missing the point.

    I am not saying there's no hentai comics/anime/video game in Japan. I question whether it's a mainstream domination of the Japanese literature/culture, and my belief is no. For despite its significance, it's only one of many, MANY genres in Japanese mangas/literature.

    As I asked:

    Have you ever been to EVERY bookstore in Japan and saw that in every single one of them hentai comics are being sold?

    So you're telling me that they sell hentai comics in Christian bible stores in Japan? They sell them too in children book stores?

    Give the Japs some credits, purlease.

    For the sake of the argument let's say hentai is mainstram in Japan. Just because you saw Japanese people reading hentai mangas off the shelf, or vending machines selling porn, doesn't mean ALL Japaneses accept nudity displayed in public places. Not all people in Japan who utiltise the public train system live in the regions where hentai materials are easily accessible, or won't be offended/intimidated by nudity (as if I'm thinking in the heads of the authority people). That's why the Spears poster raised their concerns.

    It's like saying 'go to any bar in Holland and you can buy hash', as if 1) every bar in Holland sells hash, and 2) every Dutch, or the majority of them, find the use of marijuana acceptable.

    That's my point.

    I"ve seen hentai manga being sold in australia too. Especially Boarders which is an US store! I was shocked to see that. I mean, 4 isles across are porn magazines such as playboy, etc. Even their stories are much better.

    As for the poster, no matter who it is, pregnant women are beautiful Obviously that poster has been air brushed and such but still looks great.

    What country was it that a big poster of Cindy or Claudia semi naked advertising some underwear was taken down because it caused too many accidents on the road where it was standing.

    Not sure if you meant Playboy has better stories or hentai mangas have better stories. But I presume you've read one and the other to know better?

    They also sell other genre of mangas at Borders, too. Just FTR.

    Britney single again

    Wow I'm surprised this has been posted yet. C'mon it was important enough for CNN to put a huge red breaking news banner on their site this afternoon. I mean this is the biggest story of the day, perhaps the year!
    You're waiting for a train, a train that will take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you, but you can't be sure. But it doesn't matter - because we'll be together.
