CHRISTINA AGUILERA BLAMED FOR ALL SOCIAL ILLS, SEVERAL DISEASES: "Graffiti is not art, it is crime" warned a grumpy Prime Minister, lending his weight to Keep Britain Tidy's campaign against scribbles. KBT have no doubt who is to blame for the spread of unsightly, poorly spelled words all over the place: it's Christina Aguilera's fault:

"Stars such as Christina Aguilera fill their videos with graffiti images to convince you they're in touch with the streets.
In the real world, all graffiti does is add to the sense of squalor and makes people feel unsafe."

Now, while we wouldn't neccesarily disagree with a suggestion that Christina adds to the sense of squalor, there's a bit of a wobble in the logic there: if she's using graffiti in her videos to make it look like she's "of the street", then surely the street has to already have grafitti over it, doesn't it? Shouldn't the campaign be to stop graffiti artists doing their work and making it seem to Christina that it's cool and copying it, rather than the other way around?
