When Britney Spears decides to do something, she really goes all out, doesn’t she? If she wants to spend more time with her kids, she locks herself in a bathroom with one of them. If she wants to get a haircut, she shaves her entire head. Now, she’s started dating her agent, Jason Trawick, and to prove her love, she’s going to become a Jew – just like him.
I don’t think this is a good idea. Just from past experience, when she’s totally given herself to someone, it didn’t work out so well. She let Sam Lufti have complete control over her life. Now she’s under her father’s conservatorship for god knows how long. She totally ‘fell completely in love’ with Adnan Ghalib and then was shocked when he started cheating on her. Now she has a restraining order against him. So, this latest move of hers has a rabbi following her around on tour to teach her the new religion and she wears a Star of David around her neck to prove that she’s ready to become a Jew. I really hope that someone tells her that becoming a Jew requires more than just sporting some new bling. From Gawker,
“Britney Spears is a woman who is dedicated to her man/agent. So dedicated that she’s converting to Judaism to show Jason Trawick how much she loves him. She’s been wearing a star of David around her neck and has enlisted a rabbi to tour with her to teach her the religion.”
I am all for supporting your man. And I’m even all for changing your religion if you want to practice the same religion as your man. But I must preface this latter with saying that it’s probably only required if you’re going to get married or have children with the man. And you want those children to be raised in the same religion as well. But, these two have only been dating since the beginning of the year. I think they started going out in March but even if it was earlier than that, they’ve still haven’t been together for more than a year. I don’t think that within the first year is the best time to make major life-changing decisions on someone else’s belief system. I just think that this is a very dramatic move that Britney is making thinking that she’s supporting her man. When in fact, it’s just Britney being blinded by lust once again. If they break up, is she going to remain a Jew? And what about her children? Are they going to become Jews as well?
I don’t know if this latest move of Britney’s is going to work out or not but, I really think it will fall flat. Hopefully, the rabbi will clue her into the fact that becoming a Jew is a serious thing and that maybe, there are better reaasons for it than just your short-term boyfriend already being one.
