The problem I have with the media attention on Britney Spears is that it boils down to a dog and pony show. Sure, she's an idiot who has money and has used it to ruin her life. But you know what...?
IT'S YOUR FAULT.
THE PERSON READING THIS.
YOU DID IT. YOU'RE RESPONSIBLE.
PEOPLE LIKE BRITNEY SPEARS DO NOT POP OUT OF THE AETHER. YOU CARING ABOUT HER- OR EVEN HATING HER, IT DOESN'T MATTER- HAS DONE THIS TO HER. WHAT RIGHT HAS YOU TO ATTACK HER FOR THE CONDITION YOU INFLICTED UPON HER? ALMOST NO ONE SHOULD HAVE THE FULL BEAM OF STARDOM GLARE UPON THEM, EVEN IF THEY THINK THEY WANT IT.
AND WHAT DO YOU DO AFTER THEIR LIFE IS RUINED? YOU SHAKE YOUR ANT FARM LIKE AN ADHD KID IN A TEMPER TANTRUM. YOU GLOAT ABOUT IT. AT LEAST YOU DON'T DO DRUGS, GO CRAZY, AND SHAVE YOUR HEAD. YOU FEEL HAPPY BECAUSE YOU HAVEN'T SOLD OUT- IF ONLY BECAUSE NO ONE WANTS TO BUY YOU. IT'S LIKE SOME MIDIEVAL MORALITY PLAY WRIT MODERN. AND THE WORST PART IS, YOU DO IT TO YOURSELF- BY YOURSELF. NO ONE HAS TO BRING THESE PARIAHS TO YOUR ATTENTION. YOU CREATE THEM.
THE WHOLE MENTALITY OF IT IS FREAKISHLY PATHOLOGICAL AND S-I-C-K-E-N-S ME.
...But that's just my opinion.
