I guess the big entertainment news this week would have to be the pregnancy announcement from 16 year old Jamie Lynn Spears.
My thoughts: The focus here is not really about the pregnancy, that’s what happens when you have sex. Duh. There is always that possibility regardless of the protective measures you put your trust. I don’t know how becoming pregnant came as a shock to Jamie Lynn and her beau either, shocking is “waking up one day and discovering you can get bacon out of your elbow”.*
It does seem a bit hypocritical of people to be overly concerned with the fact that she’s pregnant and not concerned with the fact that she was having sex at 16. It’s okay to have premarital sex, just don’t get pregnant or if you do, make sure it doesn’t become public knowledge. I say don’t be mad with the results, be mad with the steps that got you there.
We’ve all made our share of mistakes in life, sometimes they are made public and sometimes they are made in private. We need to stop looking at these darn entertainers as though they are held to a higher standard of morality. So what they are in the public eye, we are all fallible! Yeah you might HOPE that some might consider their actions because of who they are, but don’t bank on it, you will be disappointed every time. Don’t expect too much, keep your role models within your own home.
