News: Britney Spears Music Used To Scare Off Somali Pirates

Reminds me of that airport in England that uses Tina Turner music to scare birds off the runway. From Breitbart.
Britney Spears Music Used To Scare Off Somali Pirates

Whoever believes that Britney Spears' music isn't powerful, need think again. Chart toppers like "Hit Me Baby One More Time" and "Oops I Did it Again" have proven to be effective weapons when blasted at approaching Somali Pirates who reportedly retreat at the mere sound of the songstress.

Rachel Owens, 34, a merchant navy officer on huge super tankers off the east coast of Africa says music is a really effective way of deterring the pirates and their high-speed skiffs: “Her songs have been chosen by the security team accompanying our tankers because they thought the pirates would hate them most.

"These guys can’t stand Western culture or music, making Britney’s hits perfect.”



  1. HA! It would scare me away too. My favorite line in the story, "'I’d imagine using Justin Bieber would be against the Geneva Convention,' joked Steven."

  2. Pirate Repellent. That's a nice addition to her resume. :)
