This is What We Call "Google Bait"

So, apparently Britney Spears and fiance Kevin Federline are going to be doing a music video in which they get married. According to a news story from E! Online, which in turn references People magazine, "she'll also be seen in her undies--after cutting off the straps of her wet dress with a kitchen knife because she's driven her car into a pool." But this is all beside the point. After talking to Smashy for a while earlier today, I started thinking about all of the really bad choices that music-stars make when making their videos with loved ones. Let's just make a list, here, shall we?
  • Axl Rose and Stephanie Seymour: "Don't Cry" and "November Rain"
  • David Coverdale and Tawny Kitaen: "Here I Go Again" and "Is This Love"
  • J-Lo and Affleck: "Jenny From the Block"
  • J-Lo and Puff Daddy: "All Around the World"
  • Counting Crows' Adam Duritz and Courteney Cox: "A Long December"
  • Paula Abdul and that cartoon-cat: "Opposites Attract"
Okay, maybe not that last one, but you get the idea. By doing this video, they are prematurely dooming their relationship... or maybe not that prematurely, given that Britney was married and un-married in fifty-five hours. I guess time's going to tell on this one.
