One perk of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is getting to watch our favorite stars
be reduced to shrieking, shaking, wet dogs of human beings as they help to raise awareness and money to fight Lou Gehrig’s Disease. So when we saw Britney and Miley’s Ice Bucket videos, “one of these things is not like the others” danced through our heads.
The two pop stars took the challenge this week: Spears accepting after being nominated by her sister Jamie Lynn, and Miley taking up the mantle passed to her by her dad, Billy Ray.
Brit’s video is a thing of beauty. After nominating Adam Sandler, her boyfriend David Lucado and business manager Robin Greenhill, the “Perfume” singer shrieks — before the water even hits her head — shuffling off-screen after the downpour as what sounds like an expletive bursts from her lips. We could watch this little vid all day.
Miley, however, dumped a bucket of rice over her head — along with brother Braison. Yes, “rice.” With an “r.” The whole thing looked kind of like an enjoyable spa treatment of sorts. Still, the caption of the photo highlighted the importance of the cause: “#makeshithappen #donate #itaintaboutthepourinitsaboutthepayinandawareness http://www.alsa.org/”
Which pop star’s video do you prefer? Brit’s ice — or Miley’s rice?
