Jacko Edges Britney in “Cringe Contest”


The poll is closed, and Michael Jackson (31%) has narrowly beaten Britney Spears (28%) as the parent most likely to make us cringe.

It’s no shock to most of us that Mr. “Beat It” topped this particular chart. What did surprise us was how close the race was. Apparently Best Parent Ever readers feel the sad and pathetic recklessness of Britney Spears makes her almost as bad a parent as an alleged child molester and a monkey.

It makes sense to us. People hate bad mothers. They really hate them. Almost as much as they hate alleged child molesters. And bad mothers must be made to suffer – not just by courts and social workers, but by anonymous poll voters in mid-level blogs.

So take that, star-struck parents everywhere! You’re not famous, so no one cares how you raise your kids. But at least you don’t make the Best Parent Ever cringe like Britney Spears or Michael Jackson.


  • If only you included JLo. I found the photos of her after the birth of her twins disturbing. I was so disappointed. I thought maybe she might at least wear a stylish tracksuit of some sort. No such luck. The photo of them skipping on their estate with the babes in vintage silvercross prams with Mark Anthony in his pink cardigan left me with nightmares for weeks…..

    I think someone just walked over my grave again….*shiver*

  • Why are Rosie O’Donnell and Kelli Carpenter on the list? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a Rosie O’Donnell fan (she definitely gets on my nerves, even more so because I’m a lesbian and people like her do not represent people like me) but I’m pretty sure their records as parents are pretty clean.
