Britney Spears, who has as many reasons to be soul-searching as anyone, is rumored to be considering a conversion to Judaism, based on the evidence that she was spotted in a Star of David necklace. The logic seems a little thin—bling is bling, after all—and we’ve heard it before, over a year ago. Plus, according to some of her jewelry vendors, “diamonds do have healing powers,” regardless of what shape they form, and the chanteuse has been known to turn to accessories for such things.

Maybe she’s preparing for her potential role in an upcoming Holocaust flick, but even if she’s following in Madonna’s footsteps, all that means is she may become Bracha Spears sometime soon, and the name change hasn’t exactly made the material girl any more kosher.
