I’m going to become a gay icon. Have I ever flirted with that side? No, never, but I do remember girl crushes on other girls in your year group at school, Contactmusic quoted her as saying./pp
There are these girls who are magnetic and beautiful and so cool. You just feel yourself shrink in their presence./pp
I absolutely remember how powerful 16-and-17-year-old girls can be. I look at them now – my little sister is 18 – and they do seem very grown up, she added. (ANI)/p
Washington, May 29 (ANI): Britney Spears has taken to a satirical way of poking fun at her perfumes, by releasing a spoof video to promote a new fake scent dedicated to the gay community.
The ‘Womaniser’ singer takes a jibe at her career as a perfumer in the short clip for fragrance ‘Mo’-a term of endearment in the gay community.
The short film involves footage from Britney’s ‘Curious’, ‘Fantasy’ and ‘Believe’ perfume adverts.
According to Contactmusic, at the end of the video, the 27-year-old beauty comes onscreen to say: “One spray and the gays will run your way.”
Shot on the set of Britney’s ‘If You Seek Amy’ music video, the advert was made for the Logo network’s NewNowNext TV awards, which celebrate gay culture.
Britney will receive the ‘Always Next, Forever Now’ award at the 2009 ceremony in the US on June 13.
According to Logo executive producer Christopher Willey, the singer has agreed to make the video to connect with her homosexual fans.
He said: “She’s having fun with her gay audience, because she’s an official gay icon at such a young and tender age. She has this natural rapport with the gay community. I think she just really likes her gay fans and she sees this as a way to talk directly to them, which she hasn’t really done before.” (ANI)
The “Toxic” hitmaker has her own line of highly successful fragrances, and decided to poke fun at her career as a perfumer by recording a short film for the organisers of the Logo TV network’s NewNowNext awards, which embrace gay culture, reports contactmusic.com.
The singer is seen promoting a faux new fragrance called ‘Mo’, a term of endearment in the gay community.
The video features footage from her previous perfume ads before the star addresses the camera to read the tag line, “One spray and the gays will run your way!”
Logo executive producer Christopher Willey explained Spears’ decision to take part in the ad.
“She’s having fun with her gay audience, because she’s an official gay icon at such a young and tender age. She has this natural rapport with the gay community. I think she just really likes her gay fans and she sees this as a way to talk directly to them, which she hasn’t really done before,” he said.
The second annual NewNowNext prizegiving show airs in the US June 13 and will see Spears presented with the Always Next, Forever Now award.
