    Kohl’s signs marketing deal with Britney Spears - Tampa Bay Business Journal:

    I called their corporate offices and informed them that while I had been a frequent in-store and online shopper, that with this new marketing decision, I will no longer be shopping at Kohl's. Obviously, they were ready for the barrage of calls because the customer rep politely read from her script saying that they regret that I will no longer be shopping with them, and that Kohl's respects the privacy of Britney Spears personal life.

    I'm not a big fan of any celebrity-- I guess I never understood the pull. They are human they make music or movies or they are politicians. They get famous one way or another-- they do not deserve any more air than you or I—although some of this think they do and some fans think they do too. Anyway I digress. I was going to say I recall the Candies campaign where Jenny McCarthy was sitting on the toilet advertizing the shoes-- That was a real turn off for me. I have no clue how men saw it--- but I did not think they made candies for men. So I never understood why she was sitting on the toilet advertising shoes. She is a sexy lady-- but sitting on the tolite selling shoes just was a turn off for Candies shoes. Blah

    Sounds like another bad marketing decision. Around me, it's not the fashionistas shopping at Kohls. They are every day family people. I'm not big on celebrities, and they all have problems. But the most egregious error Spears made was endangering the welfare of her children. She will never live down the "bad mommy" image in my eyes and I'd rather shell out a few extra bucks at a different store than have to tolerate their new marketing campaign.

    I understand completly, when bringing up children. After her saying she wanted to have their teeth whitened because they were rotting in their mouths when they were just toddlers. Might have helped if she did not let them rot to begin with. Have you seen the ads by chance? She is catering to children in them. I work at the PMO so child welfare is a big thing with us here so she was the topic of conversation for some time.

    The sad story or Britney though shows one sad fact about Americans ... notice how when she is being what everyone "wants" her to be she is popular, but the moment she tries to be unique they jump all over her? I don't like most celebs ... but that story just proves many of my contentions with society as a whole.
