Mister D: I find this comment by Bette particularly gratifying because of the way I was attacked on the Bette Boards concerning the influence and responsibility pop stars have on youngsters. Basically, think about who your core audience is and be responsible. Some of these stars are so young, it’s a shame they are most likely being manipulated by adults…who should know better

Brittany Spears is virtually nude in Esquire Magazine photos. They come on the

“It’s kind of tacky in a way because, just to say I’m not responsible for the
fact that there are 10 and 11 year-olds watching this show… I mean, I know
those two ladies don’t really give a damn what I say. But I think it’s
irresponsible in a way.” ~Bette Midler
