Purity rings aren't new by any means. I mean they were around when I was growing up and the people who were wearing them were not any more pure than a person not wearing them. The only difference was that the wearer usually had their parents fooled so if you were going to have sex with one you needed to do so someplace other than the wearer's house.
The fact that the three Jonas Brothers have gone out of their way to remind us repeatedly about their purity rings has been annoying. Not as annoying as Britney Spears repeatedly claiming she was a virgin, but close. The problem I have with the rings is that even if one of the guys does decide to have sex, do you think he is going to shout out to the world that he had sex with as much vigor as he has been proclaiming his abstinence? Hell no. He will keep wearing the ring and will be a raging hypocrite.
Hey, everyone is a hypocrite at some point, but all of their fans will see the rings and wonder how they can stay so pure while their fans cannot seem to. Their fans start feeling bad for themselves and think they are somehow inferior to the band, when in fact the band are running around getting laid left and right, but in order to keep their image, are pretending otherwise.
The reason I brought all this up is that one of the brothers, I believe it is Joe, although I don't know which one that is, gets all hot and bothered thinking of Cheryl Tweedy Cole Tweedy Cole.
"Oh my God, Cheryl Cole! All of Girls Aloud are beautiful but Cheryl is just like, wow!"
