The Passion of Britney

According to the Times review of Britney Spears' ABC tv special, Brave New Girl, "Not surprisingly, the film is a marketing venue for Ms. Spears's music, though the sales pitch is laughably forced — her pop tunes are held up as the kind of inspirational leitmotif that emboldens deprived teenagers to dream and gives downtrodden single moms a jolt of confidence."

Does anyone else find the concepts of inspiration and Britney Spears totally oxymoronic (with an emphasis on the moronic)?
