Subject: The Jonas Brothers' purity ring Mon Sep 08, 2008 12:51 pm
Okay, for those of you who don't know... the popular Jonas Brothers have stated that they were purity rings as a symbol that they will abstain from premarital sex. I think that is awesome of them.
Well... last night, I tuned in to the 2008 MTV Music Awards and this host from Britain, Russell Brand, spent like 1/2 of the show making fun of them for being virgins
I was glad when american idol Jordin Sparks spoke up and defended the use of these rings. He was really a jerk and besides making fun of the Jonas brothers he also made fun of Sarah Palin. Who came up w/ the idea of having him host anyway???? :fullmoon:

Yeah, I saw the recap of that on one of the entertainment shows last night and today, read that Paris Hilton defended them, too.
I think that if this is what they believe and want to do, more power too them. They are rare in hollywood. I wish there were more like them.
I agree. I read an article from People.com about this today, wow why would the host be such a jerk to them? For one thing, it's none of his business, for another it's completely out of line. And the Jonas Brothers are so popular, I think the fact that they're good role models is great.
