Britney Spears is a class act. Ok, let’s not go that far. But reports say that Brit watched the Idol Gives Back special last night with a two liter of Yoo-Hoo and a big bag of Funions beside her and a salty tear suddenly rolled down her cheek. She was reportedly so stricken by the plight of children in Africa with malaria that she donated $25,000.
“She didn’t know much about the disease, so she Googled it. She was horrified to realize kids were dying from mosquito bites,” a source said.
Britney got permission from her dad Jamie to donate, and put it on her American Express card. He’s got her ass on total lockdown.
That was sweet. I know a dude who got malaria while working in the Peace Corp. It is no joke. Say goodbye to your insides! Yikes.
So Britney really helped out. I can see her trying to work Google, though. “Now where in hell do I type this? My nails are sooooo raggedy. I got to get these shits done, yo! Maryland? Is that what they have? Baltimore crabs? I had those once. Daddy, what did Bono say? I can’t unnerstan’ his English accent. Keerist! Are we outta Funions? Naw, I’ll just put the crumbs in my hands. Look, Daddy, Funion moustache! Hee!”
