Before The Madness: Britney Spears - Oops! I Did It Again

How many closet Britney Spears fans do we have out there? Seriously, don't be shy. I know you secretly did a few dances to her songs in your room. Heh heh.

Seriously, this whole Britney hype is completely out of control. I found out that the pop princess was hospitalized after a police standoff while watching CNN on the elliptical at the athletic club. What is up with that? I was curious about what was going on in Pakistan, with so much turmoil there and instead I got Larry King hosting a show about Britney losing her kids. That scares the living crap out of me. When we care more about Paris Hilton being jailed or Britney acting like a spoiled rich girl, what does that mean for society?

The mind boggles.

In tribute to the madness, and giving my only say to this, I would like to play this YouTube video of Britney back in the "good old days". May she find peace, hopefuly back in Louisiana, so that the country can start focusing on something a tad more important, like the upcoming Presidential election!

Take care.

Can't really stand her music, but it is just sad how her life has turned into a train wreck. From top of the world to a punchline. But you nailed the even worse part - the constant rubber necking as the spotlight is shone on her and people seem to want even more. And what the hell is CNN doing reporting on that when there's an election going on and there's turmoil all over the world? CNN really is becoming a joke. If I must watch news, I prefer the BBC. Or the Daily Show :)

Hope the girl gets help though. And that some common sense prevails and they shut off the cameras. At the end of the day, celeb or not, shes a human being, not a way to boost ratings.

I am kind of hoping that Britney pulls her head out of her butt and goes back to Louisiana. God knows she needs it. The only problem is that another celeb will come along and take her place. It is sad, really. I want to watch the news to find out what is going on in the world, and evidently these days entertainment is taking precedent over politics. It is an odd time to be alive!

Yep, CNN has gone to the dark side. Maybe I will have to start watching BBC America. Heh.
