Royal Navy Uses Britney Spears To Ward Off Pirates

Note to Britney Spears: The Somali pirates don’t like your music.

When the Royal Navy runs into pirates off the African coast they have begun to use Britney Spears to send them running.

“Her songs were chosen by the security team because they thought the pirates would hate them most,” Rachel Owens of the Royal Navy said.

“These guys can’t stand western culture or music, making Britney’s hits perfect,” Owens explained. “It’s so effective the ship’s security rarely needs to resort to firing guns.”

She’s sold close to 100 million albums worldwide, but it seems Britney Spears can’t count Somali pirates among her many fans. In fact, her tunes are being used to turn the tide on high-seas crimes.

Merchant naval officer Rachel Owens recently spoke to Metro and revealed that a “blast of Britney” is all it takes to send the pirates packing.

“Her songs were chosen by the security team because they thought the pirates would hate them most,” Owens said.

The “Toxic” singer can take heart though — it’s nothing personal.

“These guys can’t stand western culture or music, making Britney’s hits perfect,” Owens explained. “It’s so effective the ship’s security rarely needs to resort to firing guns.”

There you have it: Britney Spears saves lives.
