Before you think this sounds nuts, please note that Rayne native Kassie Thibodeaux has thousands of people who agree with her.

She started a petition arguing the pop star from Kentwood is the actual Louisiana hero, and the cause has nearly reached its goal of 5,000 signatures.

Thibodeaux told us that she’s hoping to get the attention of the governor, our US Senators and Congressman Cedric Richmond, “But I doubt that will happen,” she said. “I just want her to see it.”

The petition states Spears is an inspiration to millions whose contributions are far too many to list.
