From an article by Chuck Klostermann in a 2003 issue of Esquire comes the following tidbit, which gave me les frissons, as the french say. A good quote, this. And I like the spin it can give, in the right minds, to the whole disastrous coverage of Ms. Spears’ life over the last 2-3 years and the equally disastrous turn her life has taken in that time.
“I was just talking about sexuality with my makeup artist,” she tells me. “And I was explaining to her that when I was thirteen years old, I used to walk around my house completely naked. And my dad would say, ‘Britney, put some clothes on, we have people over.’ My family just always walked around the house naked. We were earthy people. I’ve never been ashamed of my body. We were very free people.”
