Is Britney Putting the Jew in Jewelry?

I hate to say I told you so. But way back when Madonna was embracing Kabbalah and taking my name as her own, I knew instinctively that Britney–who would have been a Wannabe, had she been a teenager in the 80s–would not be far behind her idol. And then suddenly Brit wore red string bracelets and toted copies of the Zohar (the primary Kabbalah text) poolside, and I was right: If Madge tries it, it’s good enough for Britney.

But now Britney’s gone beyond Madonna in her embrace of faux-alterna-Judaism, by dating Jewish model Isaac Cohen and sporting what tabloids claim is Cohen’s Magen David (star of David) necklace. While Jews everywhere are echoing Kapped’s prayer (“not a Jew, please”), and speculating that the necklace (and her new hair color) indicates an imminent conversion, pop culture historians should point out that we should probably blame Madonna for this, too: Remember her song from “Confessions on a Dance Floor” that might have been about a storied Kabbalist? It was called “Isaac.”

And Britney’s attempt to catch up with Madonna–and maybe find her own spirituality, or self, in the process–continues.

    Why does she do this? Because she can rely on an army of pop-culture blogging Jews to go ape about this, and thereby play right into the hands of her publicists.

    Britney’s now a Jew? Not to offend my Jewish sisters and brothers – but you can have her! Whatever happened to the “Christian Life Coach” her parents hired for her? Britney’s not exactly the brightest bulb on the tree – if learning Hebrew is a prerequisite for conversion she’ll be running back to the Southern Baptists before long.

    I could care less what that dimwit Bitney believes, along with Madonna. In Madonna’s case she could not be immoral and be a good Catholic, so change the faith so immorality is not such. That may be the real reason for Britney’s conversion, or maybe she likes the jewelry lol. She should not be a person to emulate.
