Britney Spears’ ‘Circus’ Show: Kid-Friendly After All

By: Betsy Waldman / March 12, 2009

Fear not, child-safety advocates; despite recent heated claims to the contrary, Britney Spears‘ stage show is safe for kids’ consumption.

Well, at least her kids.

Us Magazine reports that Sean Preston and Jayden James were shielded from the bawdier moments during the March 3 debut of the Circus tour in New Orleans.

An eyewitness reports that Sean and Jayden, 3 and 2 years old respectively, did indeed cheer on their mom from a private suite with their family when the show began.

“The group was telling the boys, ‘There’s Mommy! Clap for Mommy!'” the source reports.

But when it came to the raunchier segments of the performance—the tassles, the writhing, the simulated sex, the fondling of half-naked dancers—the tots were ushered away from the scene by their grandmother, Lynne Spears.

Whew; that’s a relief! Hopefully Lynne was around to whisk the kids away when Spears experienced her unfortunate wardrobe malfunction at her Tampa show on Sunday.
