Dept. of No Comment: Merry Xmas from Antonio & Britney

The event was called “light of the Angels,” and none other than Britney (She’s No Angel) Spears was there at L..A. Live’s Nokia Plaza to hold the candy cane switch with Councilwoman Jan Perry and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to turn on the Christmas tree lights.

What is there to say? Could there a truer image for the state of the city?

    LOL! Oh dear, this one made me laugh a lot.
    I don’t mean to be sarcastic—really—but could there be a more inopportune time to open a big thing where Angelenos can spend money in L.A.? I heard on the radio today that the national unemployment rate is at 6.7%, and that doesn’t even include those people who used to be full-time workers but now can only work part-time.
    There are two L.A.s, aren’t there? One half can afford to go to places like this. The other half can afford to watch all this spectacle on TV and shake their heads in wonder and confusion….
    And is Brittney supposed to be representative of life in L.A. for the young, or the young professionals, or the young moms who live here? I feel so sorry for her because she can’t figure out what else to do with her life but be an imitation of Marilyn Monroe or Madonna.
    In my opinion, she’s someone who wants to be a Mouseketeer forever. She tried being married, it was too real. She tried being a mom and that was too real also. So now she has gone back to what her handlers want her to do because it makes them rich, and what she’s familiar with because it’s all she’s learned how to do.
    Somewhere along the line someone thought it would be a good idea to exault this image of “togetherness” and “wealth” to the people of Southern California who are supposed to be so inspired by this young, tragic woman that we go flocking to L.A. Live for dinner?
    What demographic was this aimed at? I dunno. I guess I’m just old and old-fashioned. I don’t get it.

    this is unbelievable–how out of touch can this dying city be? at least the switch says ON/OFF so these vapid morons would know which way to turn it. gosh, LA LIVE, what a wonderful, pretty inviting place destined to make LA the cultural capital of the universe–ha ha ha
    it’s an orgy of logos, lasers and shoddy craftsmanship–why not erect a status on the WALK OF CHAMPIONS to Fabian Nunez? Or better, his murdering, gang member son? Celebrate the best LA has to offer, I say!

    This picture shows a real “meeting of the minds”!
    Opening another monument to materialistic overindulgence (and the perfect representatives to do so), with restaurants, stores & clubs so overpriced that the average City citizen will never be able to afford to go there.
    This is our new icon of culture?

    I didn’t realize that Britney Spears was so short.
