The reason? The Somalian pirates find her music and anything of western culture offensive. The best songs that are used by the Navy that are of Britney Spears are her chart topping "Hit Me Baby (One More Time) and "Oops! I Did It Again".
As reported by Glamour Magazine, Britney's songs were chosen because it is the epitome of western civilization. Rachel Owens, second officer said:
"Her songs were chosen by the security team because they thought the pirates would hate them most. These guys can't stand Western culture or music, making Britney's hits perfect."
According to the report, the music is blasted out and is done in such a way that it does not affect the sailors on board. Owens also reiterated that following:
"It's so effective the ship's security rarely needs to resort to firing guns, As soon as the pirates get a blast of Britney, they move on as quickly as they can."
