Unfortunately it’s a clay statue, not a viral video. Freaky twist: it’s pro-life art.

“Britney provides inspiration for those struggling with the ’right choice,’” said artist Daniel Edwards.



Shakira’s statue’s stance on a woman’s right to choose remains unclear. But judging by the photo, it’s anti-feet. (Thanks J!)

In related Britney news, today’s Daily News says that Mrs. Federline was downing shots during Kevin’s birthday party at Tao in Vegas the other day. So no lil’ sibling for Sean Preston … yet.

    what, you think just ’cause she’s downing shots that she’s not pregnant? this from the woman who had baby k-fed in her lap while driving? somehow, i doubt she’s real familiar with fetal alcohol syndrome

  2. you didn’t provide a backshot (thank god)!

  3. Did the guy that make the statue know that she had a C-section? (Like most everyone else that saw that and put that under the comments sections of blogs said.)

  4. Pro-life art complete on skinned bear rug.

    Fancy. Ironic, but fancy.

  5. Not only did she have a c section, but she didn’t do it on a bearskin rug either!

    As a graphic designer ?? BAAAARRRRFFFFF ?? or worse.

    Am I the only one that doesn’t think that statue looks like Britney Spears.

  8. i’ve seen this all over the web today. but nobody is showing the “crowning head shot”. i guess we’ll all have to wait for april 7th. damn.

    Uhhh that certainly ain’t Britney Spears

    Insane idiots.

    “And according to gallery co-director, David Kesting, the artist studied a bearskin rug from Canada ‘to convey the commemoration of the traditional bearskin rug baby picture.’”

    To convey the … commemoration …

    Jesus fucking Christ.

    uh, wtf?!

    the facial features looks a little more like Ashley Judd than Britney.

    a monumental waste of time and bandwith. a waste of clay in honor of a waste of flesh.

    You guys are gonna get an influx of hits on your site from people googling “nude britney spears”.

    She is so trashy, who would want to depict her bringing the seed of the ultimate trash into this world. YUCK – PS an unnecessay C-section screams herpes, not ‘fear of pain’. She’d spread her legs for a ding dong. Poor Sean Preston. His mom will be remembered for enternity for being a dumb slut with her legs always open, know immortilized in clay. Poor child.

  17. She’d spread her legs for a ding dong.

    Oh, heck yes. Ding Dongs sound so good right now. Haven’t had one of those in about a decade.

    Oh yes, Britney Spears should be applauded for putting family for career and is the model for pro-life. All pregnant women should look to her as an example. It doesn’t matter that most of them do not make millions of dollars like she does and cannot afford to not work.

  19. Karl  |   Posted on Mar 25th, 2006 0

    WTF? Who has a baby on all fours??? I’m sorry this is just fucking ridiculous. A bear-skinned rug, a nude Britney-looking girl, clay, pro-life??? What about the fuckin bear!! I can read into art just fine, and how this represents pro-life or anything is beyond me. Worthless.

  20. In that position she looks like a missle launcher aimed and ready to shoot her puppy across the room. Armed and ready.

  21. “Dedication of the life-sized statue celebrates the recent birth of …”

    Woah… hold on a second. Life-sized?

  22. gdm  |   Posted on Mar 25th, 2006 0

    Wow, what a perfect example of how misogynistic and utterly clueless pro-life men are – but at least they don’t discriminate on the basis of class: even celebrity women are really just broodmares that are fun to look at. Wonderful.

    Shouldn’t be holding a bucket of chicken?

  24. Jason  |   Posted on Mar 26th, 2006 0

    OH. MY. FUCKING. GOD. People, it’s a joke! It’s absurdist! I’m astounded at the knee-jerk reactions to this. It’s obviously NOT a paean to the Pro-Life movement…I mean, it’s Britney Spears (or someone posingas her, more accurately and less potentially litigiously) NUDE ON A BEARSKIN RUG. Please, read up a little bit about the artists before you light up the torches. http://www.theartnewspaper.com/special/bartlebooth/bartlebooth.asp

    It’s really Ashley Judd

  26. jefflo  |   Posted on Mar 26th, 2006 0

    um… definitely disturbing if anything, but what’s more disturbing (or enjoyable if you think about it) is this:

    Love modern art that looks nothing like the subject matter.

    Split me baby one more time.

    where did the rest of stereogum go?

  29. rex  |   Posted on Mar 26th, 2006 0

    I’ll fuck her with my huge dick during the birthing process and push the baby back in.

    Thank God Jason chimed in about the OBVIOUS IRONIC CONTENT. Anyone remember Irony? It was something that became extinct with the G-dub presidency, apparently. Really big in the 90′s, or so I hear.

  31. f.  |   Posted on Mar 27th, 2006 0

    using irony to justify irrelevancy: the old, tired tactic. a child’s gambit. under the aegis of a wink and a giggle all manner of stinking nonsense is foisted on the public.

  32. Maximus  |   Posted on Mar 27th, 2006 0

    This is the proper position and the proper role for any woman, pregnant or not. Notice the upward thrust of the pelvis in the classic “offering” of herself to please and service male needs. Every young female must be repeatedly tutored in the fine arts of pleasing a man. Let this stand in public to train our nubile girls. Lastly, they may now learn where the term “broad” originated and that it describes the rear view of this lovely statue. Congratulations!

  33. Gabi  |   Posted on Mar 27th, 2006 0

    That is just scary!

    And by the way she was realy huge during the pregnancy and after!

  34. Andy  |   Posted on Mar 27th, 2006 0

    This is a screaming postmodernist GOOF, but it’s hot!

  35. Smokey  |   Posted on Mar 27th, 2006 0

    I feel sorry for the bear! Bad enough having that skank spread eagled on top of me without the on-coming after-Bearth.

    to Gary at March 25, 2006 11:48 AM :
    Too right!! :):) and that position looks just right for *entry* not exit!! :)

    This is BAD advert for ‘pro-life’… looks more like a pornstar….

    maximus: yep, more women could do that…

    I think most doctors will say the ‘proper position’ is leaning against a wall, legs spread, to ensure easy birth…

  37. Heather  |   Posted on Mar 29th, 2006 0

    Does anyone else think that this statue looks more like Jessica Simpson then Britney Spears?????

  38. myke  |   Posted on Mar 29th, 2006 0

    This isn’t Britney its Kevin once he dropped those baggy pants off his skanky ass.

  39. Miela  |   Posted on Mar 29th, 2006 0

    Why anybody would like to do a sculpture on Britney??? And giving BIRTH at that!!!

  40. Miela  |   Posted on Mar 29th, 2006 0

    Just so you know the guy who did the sculpture, had his kids help him with the THING!

    Damn! Where’s the air freshener?

  42. Jimbo  |   Posted on Mar 29th, 2006 0

    What if somebody made a statue of every woman everytime she squeezed something out of her ass!

  43. n.t.  |   Posted on Mar 29th, 2006 0

    don’t get all the fuzz ! and don’t recognize Britney from that!

  44. c.a.d.  |   Posted on Mar 29th, 2006 0

    if anyone remembers her c-section was not for any other reason other than a tummy tuck after birth. of course this was never admitted by b.s.f. but plastic surgeons have all said that is one of the only reasons for a unneeded c-section. other than that it is a man’s wet dream of a pose (hiden under a popular train of thought to make it (or try to) more palitable.

  45. monica  |   Posted on Mar 29th, 2006 0

    PEOPLE!!! THIS IS NOT ABOUT BRITNEY SPEARS!
    at all!!!. it’s a mockery on pro-life. you get some shallow artist like britney (hence the skin) and a loser like k-fed and well the combination will be some kind of idiot…sometimes it’s better to abort…

  46. Oh! Baby Baby….Hit me one more time, talk about bending over and giving birth; what about bending over and Britney singing saying: ” Oh baby baby… fuck me one more time..!”

    ?Britney provides inspiration for those struggling with the ?right choice?,? said artist Daniel Edwards, recipient of a 2005 Bartlebooth award from London?s The Art Newspaper.”

    Aside from her successful career and millions of dollars, who in their right mind would look to Britney Spears for inspiration for ANY life decision, let alone one so important as whether or not to bring a child into the world? She is a joke. She has become a caricature of herself and reminds me of how lucky I am, however poorer, not to be white trash, mating with other white trash, bringing life into the world which will undoubtedly end up trust fund white trash.
    That said, despite the artists claim about this being a serious work trying to make a pro life statement, it simply can’t be. If the model had been some random unknown woman, perhaps. Given that Ms Spears has been selected as the muse, all that this statue says to me is to steer clear of dirty men and stay on the pill. Oh yeah. And if no statement or title had been given to this, my only response would have been creepy. It’s just creepy.

  48. PKS  |   Posted on Mar 29th, 2006 0

    All I want for Christmas is mandatory art education.

    The responses are fascinating, and I’m not sure why I’m shocked that people are initially amazed and disgusted. Why is it disgusting to you? What is creepy about it? Britney Spears in a sexualized position (not only that, but on the stereotypical “bearskin rug”)? That’s definitely nothing new. A pop icon’s birth made public? Again, old. The combination of these two ideas together, in a way that simultaneously repulses and intrigues? Hmm!!

    I’m not trying to be condescending, simply asking people to go a little deeper before tossing it aside.

  49. frankie  |   Posted on Mar 29th, 2006 0

    To me it looks like she is doing the bear,not giving birth.Thats horrible..
