Even the Spanish press has to jump in and spread silly nonsense about poor Boo!
But, hey, who can take seriously a report that can't even spell "Mississippi" right? From Algo pasa con Britney Spears El País 07.01.07:
Como ellas, Britney (Misisipi, 1981) está encuadrada en la generación Madonna: desde que tiene uso de razón, está pendiente de la material girl, a la que admira por el control que ejerce sobre su imagen y su carrera. (my emphasis)
Okay, okay, so maybe it's the correct Spanish spelling of Mississippi. At least they didn't use the alternative spelling "Misisipí" which puts the accent on the last syllable. And that Spanish guy Hernando de Soto is said to be the European "discoverer" of the Mississippi River, so I guess they may have been the first to spell it in a European language.
But still, why do they fell compelled to trash an American icon like Britney, who also happens to be a sweet, sincere young Southern Baptist lady as well?
