Burgers, fries and pop


It seems strangely fitting to see Britney Spears and N’ Sync hanging out beneath the Golden Arches. The two teen pop entities are selling their musical wares next to Big Macs and french fries, offering three exclusive CDs titled “Britney Spears and N’ Sync: Your #1 Requests and More,” “The Rhythm,” and “The Groove.” But these CDs aren’t freebies with a Happy Meal. Rather, they’re available for $5 a pop. They contain the “hottest” tunes from Britney and the N’ Sync boys, as well as a chance to win the McDonald’s Music Event contest, in which you buy a CD and listen for the winning message recorded on it. To find out more, visit your local McDonald’s restaurant or Norene Cashen pays attention here every other week. E-mail
