Here is where I say something nice about Britney

You can't always judge a book by its exposed scalp and vagina. Case in point: Britney Spears. Recently the former pop princess has received nothing but bad press and ridicule, yet she still gives back generously to the world that has so callously turned on her.

Spears shelled out 590,000 dollars to charity last year, despite a floundering career and money-grubbing soon to-be ex-husband. Granted some of that money went to Kabbalah (the Hebrew word for sucker) affiliated charities, but many a hurricane victim and a human without a habitat benefited from the wealth Britney had accumulated by pouting suggestively during happier times.

Leonardo DiCaprio, on the other hand, isn't so generous with his 15 million dollars per film largess. He might fly around the country on his private plane fueled by lettuce, er, I mean earth-strangling jet petroleum, lecturing us all on how to save the planet, but when it comes to actually giving money back to the world he takes so much from he is only 1/10 the star Britney is.

Although I'm sure Leo feels that by acting as spokesperson for the greening of everybody else's life, he is giving the environmental movement millions of dollars in free exposure.

Also, Dicaprio did allow famous quarterback Tom Brady sloppy seconds on Leo's Brazilian supermodel ex-girlfriend. And really, it's that kind of charity -- the rich and handsome helping the rich and handsome -- that has made our country great.
