Horror hit maker Stephen King had a lot to say to Time about pop culture, the obsession with celebrity news, and politics.
“And I’m like, “Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan aren’t cultural.” They aren’t political. They’re economic only in the mildest sense of the word. In fact, if I had to pick somebody, some celebrity who has had some impact this year, some sort of echo in the larger American life, I would say Hannah Montana. That whole issue of online ticket sales and scalping fascinates me. There are [legitimate] issues there about the Internet, so that actually does seem to have some cultural significance. But Britney? Britney Spears is just trailer trash. That’s all. I mean, I don’t mean to be pejorative. But you observe her behavior for the past five years and you say, “Here’s a lady who can’t take care of her kids, she can’t take care of herself, she has no retirement fund, everything that she gets runs right through her hands.”
Stephen King’s feelings on the controversial issue of waterboarding (where a prisoner of war is tied to a board and water poured over their face, in order to make them talk and give up secrets, we know that is torture and you can die from it) that the army has been accused of….
“So I said something to the Nightline guy about waterboarding, and if the Bush administration didn’t think it was torture, they ought to do some personal investigation. Someone in the Bush family should actually be waterboarded so they could report on it to George. I said, I didn’t think he would do it, but I suggested Jenna be waterboarded and then she could talk about whether or not she thought it was torture. ”
Wow!!!! Big words from Stephen King. We like people who keep it real.

Jenna Bush who is daughter of President George Bush has recently penned a book about a young girl with HIV. When asked about the war in Iraq and why she and her sister are not over there fighting here is what she had to say….
If the war in Iraq is so noble, why aren’t you and your sister serving our country there? —Donald Pence, San Francisco
I understand that point, but there are many ways to serve our country, and I think my skills are better suited for teaching and representing the U.S. in Latin America through UNICEF. I respect the men and women of our country who are over there fighting. It is an unbelievably selfless thing to do. But if people really thought about it, they would know it’s not even a practical question.
Your father has borne a lot of criticism as President. How does your family deal with all that is said about him? —Leo Federico, Rio Rico, Ariz.
We don’t watch too much television. The world is such a big place, and there’s so much that goes on, but a lot of the media really just cover the same thing over and over again.
Was there ever a time when you wished you were part of a family that wasn’t always in the spotlight? —Ben Wong, Christchurch, New Zealand
I can’t wish I weren’t something that I am. It is difficult to watch my father being criticized. At the same time, I have been able to travel to Africa with my mother twice and meet amazing people. So sometimes it’s good, and sometimes it’s bad.
Would you like to follow in your father’s and grandfather’s footsteps and go into politics? —Mike Shewmake, Las Vegas
