An “American Tragedy”?


The new issue of Rolling Stone is out today. It’s a special cover of the beleaguered fallen pop idol Britney Spears.

While it’s really messed up that Britney is essentially out of control these days. To label what she is going through an “American Tragedy” is a bit excessive. Does Rolling Stone know there is a real American Tragedy going on right now in Iraq?

What she is going through is tragic, but it’s of her own doing. As a former fan of Spears who thought she had the hottest body in the world at one point, it saddens me to see her in these various states of FAIL.

I really do wish her the best and hope she can turn it all around for the sake of her well being, kids, family and her life. But I’m not so sure we will ever see the Britney who wowed everyone at the VMA’s when she sang the strip club version of “Oops I Did It Again”. After all the self induced damage she has caused to her image and reputation since that awful UPN Reality Show she made, I highly doubt people will even be able to look at her the same.

Her only solution would be to get help for a while. And this should be done with her family as well. Obviously there is bad blood there and they all should be involved in her recovery/healing process. Also, her father should think about protecting her assets and investments. To be on top of the world at one point only to later reveal that your wild spending has left you with 40 million dollars is a little scary.

And finally to Britney (as if she is really reading my blog) this advice.

Go away until at least 2010. And that is not sarcasm or me being a smart ass. Get help and seriously fall off the face of the earth for a while and relax. Get your mind right. Get real friends. Get a good support system going. Maybe even take college classes to better yourself. Get your life together and get away from LA.  

I’m afraid that if no one locks her up for a while until she faces her problems, we will all be witness to a really bad situation. A situation that at this point seems to be the inevitable conclusion to this sad story.


BTW: Here is the best song on her album “Blackout”. It’s called “Heaven On Earth”. It’s a shame she is so far gone that she can’t promote what is essentially the best album of her career properly.
