Bee Gees Meet Britney...

Clarksburg, NJ

I love The Bee Gees. Next to The Beatles they are one of my alltime favorite bands. They've written so many beautiful songs that anyone can listen to and worked with so many extraordinary people over the years. I was crushed when Maurice died several years ago and they the remaining brothers are now reportedly no longer on speaking terms. Anyway, does anyone remember there being some footage from around 2000/2001 when they met Britney Spears backstage at some concert? I saw this on YouTube recently, apparently the video got removed, and it showed them telling her how great she is and all she could do was flash that annoyingly goofy smile and do that flirtacious laugh she always does. I'm pretty sure she was somewhat aware of them, being that her then boyfriend, Justin Timberlake, is an avid Bee Gees fan. However, I think they were more startstruck meeting Britney than she was around them. I was a little put off by this because I always figured them to be such upstanding gentlemen and they always associated with people like Olivia Newton John, Celine Dion, Kenny Rogers, Dionne Warwick and Barbara Streisand, all talented and CLASSY people. I would have never in my wildest dreams would have seen them associating with pop trash like Britney, who is basically a stripper/prostitute who makes crappy music and earns her living acting like a teenage bimbo. I even remember The Bee Gees slammed The Spice Girls for being fake and not earning their fame and thought they were, as Barry put it, "disgusting". Yet, Britney is just as bad and fake as The Spice Girls and they like her? I guess they were all suckers for the whole "teen sex kitten" thing, aye? Still love The Bee Gees but Britney is tops on my CRAP list!
