Fifth grade students at Citrus Springs Elementary School were asked: "If you could have a celebrity for a best friend, who would you pick?"

BRENDI MARTIN, 10 "I've always had this celebrity that I liked and she's Britney Spears, because she's a very pretty girl. She's a singer and she's almost like me. She's got blond hair like me and stuff. I have another celebrity that I really adore, Aaron Carter. He's a singer."

MATTHEW WALKER, 10 "Lenny Krayzelburg, he's a swimmer. We both like to swim and I want to be in the Olympics someday."

ERIC PUGH, 11 "It's Jim Carrey, because he's a real funny guy and a lot of people think I'm funny. He has a good sense of humor, so I guess that's why."

JESSICA INGOLD, 11"Nelly Furtado, because she's really pretty and she sings really good and I like to sing, too. And I like to dance and maybe she can teach me how so I can be famous someday."
