This is music news?

Under the heading of music news on AOL is a story about Brittany Spears posing naked for some magazine. I guess I haven’t been paying attention for a while because I find myself wondering exactly how this is music news.  Does she play the banjo with her nipples?  Pound a drum with her butt?  Or is this just another desperate attempt by some “has been” to become an “is” again?
