Ah, celebs and politics. Two very different beasts which, rather like navy blue and black, shouldn't really mix, but, oh, they so often do. And quite a lot of the time, A-listers don't just want to lend their support to someone with years of experience in public policy/economic issues/foreign policy/qualifications other than 'looks hot in bikini', like Obama. Oh no. They want to run for office themselves. We've already had 'ironic' presidential pitches from the likes of Paris Hilton. And now Britney Spears has thrown her hat into the ring with this spoof for David Letterman’s Late Show, entitled ‘The top 10 ways the world would be different if Britney Spears was president’. Here's her manifesto... Funny enough (see below), but where's the bit about outlawing K.Fed? That’s what we'd have come up with were we in charge...
Finally the world would pay attention to me.
Three words: Vice President Diddy (this one got the biggest cheer).
Challenge US to put a nightclub on the moon by the end of the decade.
America would have a more coherent fiscal strategy.
Every Presidential news conference would feature costume changes.
I'd lure Osama out of hiding with the irresistible scent of my new fragrance 'Circus Fantasy.'
My situation room would be a cabana at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas.
Free pie for everybody.
We would only invade fun places like [Mexican holiday resort] Cabo.
I'd be the first President to wear eyeshadow since Nixon.
