    To listen not allways means to like
    And that's an example of being open-minded. He is free to say that he does listen to Britney and he doesn't feel ashamed, some tru punx might point at him and say that he became soft/pussy/sellout/idiot etc... but Noodles is "tru" to himself. Not being trendy. That's what all of us should learn from "I listen to Britney Spears" T-shirt. That's what makes The Offspring different - they might join a major label, they might do some poppy-sounding songs, but they do what they want to. A band with some of millions fans can't create an album which would make happy all of them, there will allways be part of ones who doesn't like that, it's like chasing many rabbits - you'll never catch all of them. So they do what they believe in, what they like and if some people like products of them, that's just great. That's what I can call being free . Ooh.. I so envy them

    Who else is there to blame for miscommunication?

    I like to think it's some sort of ironic statement about how much attention we're giving to the likes of Britney instead of the truly philosophical or inspiring thinkers of our times. "Listen to Britney Spears" implies that we *are* listening to her, even though she's not got much to offer us, no great message to pass on but the sign of the times is that we don't care.

    Or then it's just like, "lolz pop music".
    and no wonder hearts and minds have been won

    Ooohh... I was sure that T-shirt says "I listen to Britney Spears". Well.. I was wrong, but that doesn't change much. Except that the message of Noodles' t-shirt is more like Vera said.

    I think it's all the more funny as it is the only shirt he wears anymore, ever.
    but not in a gay way
