Pop star Britney Spears has posted a bizarre ode to big cats on her website, fuelling speculation she is set to copy Michael Jackson and Paris Hilton in setting up a menagerie of unusual animals. The TOXIC singer is already the proud owner of pet sharks but now appears to be planning to adopt tigers too, after typing a verbose ode to their beauty on the internet. She rambles, "In some ways, people are a lot like animals. I'm mesmerized by tigers. Their eyes, their stripes, their constant quest for survival. They almost have a sense of mysteriousness about them. They pull you in and make it difficult to look away. They make you wonder what is behind their gaze. A sense of eerie awe comes over you in their presence. The fear they give you when you pass them is stunning. "Behold the beauty of the tiger."
