Damn, I don't know why I keep clicking on links to "news" stories about Britney Spears (okay, I do - but I'm not admitting to anything here :beard: ), but I do.

A new low, perhaps? Yikes....

I haven't thought about Britany since the downward spiral began by getting married to K-Fed. it's a shame since she started out a cute kid with a hit song and spiraled to a overdosing,no underwear wearing,no talent, brainless bimbo. SAD SAD SAD !!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, it's too bad she couldn't have been no underwear wearing back when I actually cared to see her nether regions.

Did you catch the K-fed superbowl commercial with him working the fry machine at the fast food place?

He's on the upswing and Brit's fading fast? What is this world coming too?

We all had that friend with a hot mom, but none like Brit who is not only hot, but will buy you coke and beer and give you VD!!!!! lol

If you want to call that hot, then be my guest. She used to be hot. But now...eh. I've seen 500 lb. women on Jerry Springer who look hotter than Britney does now. You know what? I hopee K-Fed gets custody of the kids. I never thought I'd say this, but he is way more responsible than Britney, even if he does sit on his lazy @$$ all day.

I've heard that she freaked out, wandered into a hair salon, demanded that the stylist shave her head because her "extensions were too tight," and then when the stylist said no, she grabbed the clippers and shaved her own head.

Later, she wandered over to this parlor in the valley and had them do her up with a bunch of cheap tattoos. (After all, when they're cheap, you might as well get a few.)

Britney's been a disgusting pig for about the last four or five years. I'm a fan of all sorts of music and admit that I liked a few of her "better" songs. Still, I'm a Kylie Minogue guy and have been since 1987 and can't say that I was ever on the Britney bandwagon. Something around the time of "I'm a Slave 4 U" started to bother me. I didn't think it was so much a shift in her image to something racier or more adult. It seemed like something in her started to change. People didn't listen and called me a "hater" and so forth. After her run-ins with the media (remember her flipping them off in Mexico?) and then her "marriage" to her high school friend-- and then her subsequent marriage and kids with K-Dud, I started to feel as if I had that sixth sense about the shape of things to come.

Two years ago, a Britney fan told me that I was wrong about her and that she'd make an easy comeback and that she was set to be even bigger than Madonna. Really? Like her or hate her, you cannot dispute that Madonna is an originator and an icon like Elvis, The Beatles, Aretha Franklin and James Brown. Britney is one of the many girls who borrowed from Madonna. So, really, there's no way she could be bigger than Madonna. I digress; I knew that Little Miss Misery's woes were just beginning and we'd see some colossally bad choices in the future. I predicted the approximate time period of the divorce from K-Dud and that was kinda fun.

Poor, stupid Britney. Here's a girl who had a lot handed to her for having so little talent or personality. She doesn't have much character either. So, if she's not actually mentally imbalanced at the moment, she's clearly one of the dumbest people to ever fall out of a southern woman's womb and live to have a career of sorts. Can you wait to see what happens next? I can't!!!

Some guy who recently dated her said they created a strange two-backed beast in her home, where she still had her wedding dress prominently displayed under glass. (I think that'd be a turn-off.)

You do realize that none of this is a breakdown? No, it's carefully calculated. The up-the-skirt shots, the driving with a baby in her lap, the checking in and then immediately out of rehab, the Evey-wannabe hairdo.

It gets news coverage.

She's hopelessly addicted to attention.

So let's just drop it and never mention her again.

(Though I must say it's curious that the lady at the salon claimed she shaved her own head when no one was looking, but there are several photos of her doing it. I guess maybe the Invisible Man was there with his camera, eh?)

I heard a blurb about this on a news radio station this afternoon. Micheal Jackson syndrom perhaps? Remember since a young age she was performing on the Mickey Mouse club, and she seems to be falling apart. Maybe it's true, money doesn't buy happiness, it just makes you. I dunno......strange?

Well, Spears was pretty good as that Irish chick who sang Prince songs. Remember when she burned a picture of the Pope on Saturday Night Live? Who?.....Sinbad O'Conner?...........damn.....dude, I feel stupid, but not as stupid as Brit looks!

So, you mean to tell me that she checked into rehab and left the first day of the treatment... twice in a week?

This is not insanity. This is not a breakdown. This is a desperate attempt for attention. She's addicted to one thing, and that's the media coverage.

She can't end it for herself. Sadly, the media won't help her out.

Y'know what? You might be on to something there..... though my guess would be bad E (which, up here, nearly 90% of the time is laced with both meth AND cocaine) - I can't see Britney smoking anything (you know what I mean, pervs :beard: ), but I CAN see her popping pills like crazy.

That being said, meth is one of those nasty drugs that you can ingest in just about any manner possible, from snorting to smoking to eating. I've never heard of it being injected, but I wouldn't put it past a few of the druggies I've dealt with.

While we are all having a good laugh at the expense of Britney, I'll play Debbie Downer and ask people to be a little forgiving. Yeah, she's rich, and yeah, she's made her loot by manipulating the media, but at the same time she's been a performing monkey since age 5 with no sense of self worth outside her career or knowledge of the hardball world we live in. They say people find spouses in people who are emotionally on their own level, and so it now happens we have two emotional 12-year-olds devouring each other.

I hope this won't be so funny to everyone when she winds up dead, because that is exactly where she is headed before the month is out if somebody doesn't reach her.

CaptainSolo1138

You can try and preach all you want but I won't ease off of her for a second. SHE HAS DONE IT TO HERSELF. Christ, they didn't want to cut her hair so she grabbed the clippers and took care of it on her own. I have zero sympathy for her.

*EDIT* I just found this awesome story on WWTDD. To quote:

Yikes. Britney last night outside of Kevins house, attacking the paparazzi after he refused to speak to her. If I saw this thing coming at me in the middle of the night, I wouldn't even wait to roll down the windows before I opened fire. I think you can legally kill someone if they come charging after you looking like this. In fact I think you're allowed to continue shooting them all the way up to the autopsy.

Here (http://wwtdd.com/photo.phtml?post_key=1945&photo_key=2110), here (http://wwtdd.com/photo.phtml?post_key=1945&photo_key=2108), here (http://wwtdd.com/photo.phtml?post_key=1945&photo_key=2109), here (http://wwtdd.com/photo.phtml?post_key=1945&photo_key=2111), here (http://wwtdd.com/photo.phtml?post_key=1945&photo_key=2112)

I don't feel sorry for these people. There is help available and Britney's recently resigned assitant (who was also her childhood friend) urged her and helped her locate people who could help her. It's Britney who refuses to be helped... and if she dies, it's not like anyone didn't try to help her get fixed!

Oh, believe me, I'm not above taking delight in the suffering of others... Ted Haggard, Ken Lay, Jimmy Swaggart... but usually you have to be proud, a hypocrite or a bully for me to start up with the hating.

Britney and Anna Nicole are simply pathetic creatures and all of this smacks of "piling on". But, if it makes you feel righteous to bash her over your concern for her children, or you feel she deserves to die, have at it.

What disturbs me though is how deep the vitriol is if the celebrity involved is a woman. I didn't hear or read about Kurt Cobain being bashed for being a heroin fiend who blew his brains out and begat a little girl he abandoned.(That was really Courtney Love's fault, right?) Or James Brown, for being a flaming a-hole who beat the #%#@ out of women and tried to hurt cops. Nooooo, when he died, he was just the Godfather of Soul.

And I'm not a feminist by any stretch... But I'm with Jon9000 on this one. Spears is a pathetic figure; so was Anna Nicole. I don't get any joy out of heaping hate on them. But if that's how you get your kicks, have at it.

(But give me a break, don't go accusing forum members of "preaching" because they expressing such opinions if you're essentially going fire-and-brimstone on these people yourself)

El Chuxter
02-23-2007, 12:01 PM
I complained about Cobain being a no-good heroin addict throughout his life, and I've cracked more than a few tasteless jokes about him since he blew his head off.

James Brown got a lot of notoriety during his life for his violence, drug use, etc. But when he died, well, you tend to dwell on achievements. No one wanted to say, "Hey, Reagan did some good, but he was a lying SOB." Or "Bette Davis sure could act, but, man, what a b****." Likewise, people preferred to recall the fact that Brown was one of three architects of what we consider soul music, and the last to pass on.

It had nothing to do with gender. It had everything to do with the guy earning his fame through merit.

But Anna Nicole? What did she do, and "Being hot at one point" doesn't count. I'm waiting.

Her crowning achievement was a minor role in The Naked Gun 33&1/3, based totally on her looks, and a role that could've been played by any number of other models with little or no acting talent.

Oh, and she had a reality show, where she was an insane washed-up model weighing about 300 pounds, acting like an idiot but showing no signs of truly self-destructive behavior.

On the other hand, there's OJ Simpson. He's a case where his notoriety has actually overshadowed his accomplishments. When he dies, the news will remember an accused murderer, with his football and acting careers as footnotes.

My problem with the ANS deal--and, I bet, most people's problem with her as well--is we are sick of her. We were sick of her years before her death, and the 24-hour coverage and ongoing media circus following her death have done nothing to abate that. No, we're even sicker of her.

Like I said before, the news should've said, "Anna Nicole Smith died today in Hollywood, FL. The cause of death is undetermined. She was 39." It shouldn't have even been breaking news. As it is, it totally took over the news outlets, and there wasn't even anything to say yet!

When Kurt Vonnegut dies, which will, sadly, probably be soon, will CNN stop reporting on all other news for two days straight? And, yet, who is more deserving of acclaim?

Britney's much of the same. What did she do? She had a couple of successful songs. But they were far from great; even her onetime loyal fans don't give a rat's about her. She was so manufactured, she made the Spice Girls look like the frigging Supremes. And everyone knows that.

You can say all you want that the only reason the news gives idiots like this (and Paris Hilton, and Lindsey Lohan) so damned much attention is because we watch it. I can guarantee you that, if a serious study were ever to be conducted on this, the numbers of people who actually care are far lower than the media conglomerates want to think.

Oh, and I stand by what I said about her needing to be fixed two kids ago. The girl is an idiot. She's a lousy mother, and her kids are certain to have major problems. Should she be allowed to produce babies simply because she's "pathetic"?

I'm just curious about what it is about these celebrities that makes people *hate* them so much that they laugh with glee when said celebrities are brought so low- especially when the celebrity has done nothing to us personally.

Is it some form of envy? As in, "here I am working my butt off and this loser can't make it on a billion bucks?"

Or, "everybody has it tough in life, and these people need to face some adversity, too."

Or, "here is a woman who exerts a lot of influence and power, has people on bended knee serving her every whim, so it certainly feels good to point and laugh in order to make myself feel superior."

I glean from the comments herein (I do not mean to single you out, Chux) that is probably a little bit of all three... all I am saying is that these people, no matter how grotesque their personal lives have become, are real people, not characters out of Dickens, no matter how dickensian their lives.

And as for ANS, I'll reserve judgment because I do not have any effing clue what it is like to grow up hungry (and I mean true hunger- abject poverty the likes of which robs you of your humanity), surrounded by total redneck ignorance and filth. She gave it a heckuva try but in the end couldn't get past the memories.

You didn't. I'm not calling anybody out individually, but some of the vitriol being handed out (not by you, I'm saying generally on this thread) is enough to make wonder what is going on. And if hate is too strong a word on my part, I suppose I could dial it down to "extreme dislike".

As for the media having a field day with this sort of thing, the sad reality is that, sick of Brit on TV or not, a lot of Americans don't give a darn about real news. If Britney were here, I'm sure she would agree with you and ask the media to find something better to do.

All young people who think they are flipping clever by being news*****s better wake up... they are basically acting like Mickey in Fantasia, and once they get the brooms started they are going to find it deuce difficult to get them to stop.

I will say at least Britney cares. Paris is so jaded she doesn't give a darn either way... all news is god news.

Still, given the proliferation of young female stars who are obviously highly disturbed, I have to ask what in the world is showbiz doing to them.

Otherwise, I'm trying to think of all of the jokes that I made about women like Princess Di or Mother Theresa flipping out, taking drugs, dropping babies, shaving heads, flashing sex organs, but then I remember that they actually tried to live lives that didn't read as a series of ready-made punchlines, so I didn't have any jokes to make.

Although there was that scandel with Mother Theresa and the crake *****....other than that she was quite a woman of virtue.....oh and Di's addiction to midget porn....yes, your points are well put about Brit's lack of humanitarian concern....although she did make a lot of children happy when she was a mousketeer....

The sad state of affairs is just this: people in general get off on the misfortune of others, AND we love to look at horror. Case in point - any freeway you're on slows to a crawl whenever there's a particularly nasty accident to look at. I'm not saying everyone does this, but the highway wouldn't be so backed up all the time if it weren't in a good percentage of our natures. Shows like Survivor and The Amazing Race are popular for a number of reasons: good concept, well orchestrated and realized by the production people..... AND the fact that we can't help but be enthralled by people breaking down and losing it - as sad as that may be.

I'm totally not a Britney Spears fan. I pretty much just like rock music. But I do have to give Spears credit for being pretty funny when I saw her hosting Saturday Night Live. She may have more talent for comedy than for singing, which admittedly is not saying much. Now it's all unintented comedy, which is rather sad. Well, to me.

If you're a rock star and you live a life of absolute debauchary, and basically abandon raising your kids, you get a pass. In fact, if you don't live a life of absolute debauchary and you're a male rock star, then you're suspect. Tell me that's not true.

But if you're a lightweight female pop star, or a lighweight troubled celebrity, for whatever reason, like Anna Nicole Smith, it's like, "Shame, shame, shame on you you filthy, child abandoning, junkie slutmonkey!!"

Frankly, my default instinct on crap like what happened to Smith and Spears is to feel kind of sorry for them. That doesn't mean I don't make ironic remarks about it, or even that I'm not critical.

But spare me the B.S. about, "Oh when Kurt Cobain died, I was critical... bla bla". That's crap. Everyone is technically "critical" when someone does something so awful, almost by default. But there wasn't a groundswell of people practically delighting in his death.

As for the "well, Anna Nicole didn't do anything in her life..." argument, well, then why do you give a hoot? Why devote energy to poking fun at her death? She's was a friggin' cipher! I don't have a problem with people being critical about her lifestyle--I just cringe at the venom that accompanies the death or failures of someone like Smith or Spears.

Why? Because they're rich and you figure, "Well, what do they have to be unhappy about? Or why don't they use that money to help themselves?" Some of the most unhappy, screwed up people in the world are filthy rich. Some of the people least able to help themselves are rich. Look at Cobain. Dude was loved and respected and rich. And he still blew his brains out.

I can't relate to that. I simply can't. But that doesn't mean that however insignificant and superficial I find a certain celebrity, I shouldn't feel a little sorry for them when they die, or when they're obviously struggling emotionally and psychologically.

And as a postscript--as a matter of #%#@ fact, we should be more critical of presidents, be they Reagan, Ford, JFK or whoever in the future, when they die. People like that m ake life and death decisions, they influence world events for good and for bad, and they die and sure enough, we give them a pass.

Gerald Ford was a LOUSY president. He was not worthy of the office. He didn't "heal" the country. That's B.S. People in the know know that. But it's just the nature of the beast: if a president dies, we kind of ignore the bad--even though their life actually really did influence ours. But some lightweight pop artist dies or goes into rehab, and we tear them a new one. It's so ironic.

To say I'm delighted that Spears has fallen would be understating my feelings. She used to get on all these talk shows like Regis and Oprah and profess to the masses that she was a virgin. All you have to do is google Britney and Porn and you will get your fill of evidence that debunks her claim.

Its these lies that propelled her into stardom. My two girls worshipped the ground she walked in. My girls weren't the only ones that thought she was the best thing since sliced bread. Hell you can see it in the new fashion. With the Bratz dolls and so on. She single handedly ushered in the "sassy" look. Every girl in the mall dressed like her and still do. All the while I'm thinking to myself "man if only these girls knew what Britney did to make it to the top." I knew it was only a matter of time before she fell from grace. First the baby in the driver seat debacle, then the panty thing and now the cue ball.

My girls have wisened up. They now recognize that you cannot misbehave without facing severe consequences. In the case of Spears her image is ruined. She had no singing talent to begin with so there is nothing left for her now. And I for one am delighted that she destroyed herself. Why would anyone feel sorry for her? She did it to herself! She set herself up for a fall long ago by casting herself in this golden light.

Rock stars are a completely different animal. I don't know of a single rock star that ever claimed not to use drug or tried to take on a male-diva persona quite like Spears did. Metallica got their nose into the online music sharing and I'm convinced thats the reason why you don't hear a lot from them. Their collective Johnsons were put on the chopping block and got knicked after the stink they raised over Napster.

Bottomline if you act like a jerk, someday it will catch up with you.

She is an intriguing curiousity as of late and she makes me feel great that I don't have her problems. I'm insane but I've never been in denial about that. I also didn't spit out two kids in less than 2 years so I could ruin others' lives. Britney is a prisoner of her own notoriety and she's panicking like a trapped animal and can't even see that. Heck, I've never turned to illegal drugs. (Dilotted (spelling?), a type of Morphine, was nice while I was in the hospital though).

Anyway, I went to Wal-Mart while I couldn't sleep last night and thought I might raid their pallets if there was anything at all to find (NOT). So I read Us Weekly and all about Britney to pass the time while the stockers dug into the toy pallets.

The analysts said some of her problem is that she's independent because she's so wealthy - her parents can't threaten to "cut her off," as she has so much more money than they do. She has a brother and a cute little sister (who's 15 now I think and looked like Britney used to when she was attractive). Her family can do nothing for her as she has no reason to listen to them. KFed said she's rude to him and won't listen to him either, and that she's actually a very shy and lonely girl in person (she extricates herself on stage - which psychologists said can be a defense mechanism). So she's trained herself to perform, but can't handle socializing. (Heck, Britney is more screwed up than most of you guys!)

As to her kids, KFed might win custody of them (and healthy child-support no doubt), because of her problems with alcohol and drugs. She ran out of her house with no money and no creditcards or anything and tried to get a hotel room somewhere, was refused with no money, and then shacked up with a random (the article didn't say whether that person was male or female - though I suspect if they were male, the media would make a bigger deal of it) but repeatedly visited the hotel lobby trying to get her own room and being refused as she had no ID, no money, etc. Who does this sort of thing? She can afford a hotel room. What does her personal staff always do these things for her so she forgets that real people have to use money? (her mother had her kids at this time, the story goes)

So maybe KFed just knocked her up so he could get the custody of the kids and the child support? Being a single father with Britney paying is very different from the typical scenerio. So maybe KFed does have one talent after all? I can see the father-sons fishing trips on private yachts now... (Hey, nice job though. It's great to see the man win one of these, isn't it? He could be an even bigger hero for our cause than O.J. Simpson was. The jury's still out on Howard K. Stern for the moment).

Oh, speaking of Anna-Nicole Smith, before she died, she put a message for Britney Spears out on her website, noting that she felt they were kindred spirits. Boy was she right.

Britney was exploited as a child, pimped out by her mother and her record label, and now the chickens are simply coming home to roost.

I'm really pi**ed at MTV. Again, not that I've watched the channel more than twice in 20 years now, but here they had a chance to find someone that could put on a good show, and instead opted for that train wreck. Only because they knew it would bring more curious viewers waiting to see if she'd be terrible.

Britney probably shouldn't have spent all the night before at the Hard Rock hotel partying, maybe if she knew her own material and choreography it would have worked out in a less humiliating manner.

As for her body, she has an ok body for a normal woman, a little doughy for a 25-year-old perhaps but she is a "mother of 2" (in that she got pregnant and gave birth, not in the manner of acting anything like a parent whatsoever) so it's fine. What's NOT fine however is going on worldwide TV in a ridiculously skimpy outfit baring full midriff while sporting a little paunch like a shameless Will Ferrell character - if she had worn something that hadn't been cut to show off her girl-gut, she would have only been criticized for her unbelievable lack of talent and showmanship that night.

I dunno if Kanye is right, she could have said no, she could have prepared well in advance, she could have decided not to stay out all night partying the day before the performance. MTV pumped a lot of cash into promoting this when she agreed to do it - that's money that goes to both them AND her exposure for her new album. I think ultimately, in MTV's position, they were damned if they did and damned if they didn't, but if they don't put her on they look bad in the audience's eyes, whereas if they do put her on she's the one who makes herself look bad and MTV sits back and lets the people watch.

not everyone can be Slick Rick. I like Kanye just fine. Besides, he did apologize (one of the best apologies ever, too!).

KANYE: “‘So I’m sitting backstage, and I already hate the fact that I didn’t win no awards, and I see Justin getting ready. I say “Where are you going?” and he says I’m going to perform” and I say “Where?” and says “On the Main Stage”, and I said “The stage that they won’t let me perform on?” And that’s when I was like “Give a black man a chance!”’ West explained before sarcastically apologising to US conservatives ‘I’m sorry middle America, I’m sorry red states.’”

A big part of the problem is that the market is still in love with the repeated hook and god-awful "crunk" aesthetic. Jay-Z, Kanye, Eminem (although I think he is a lousy human being), and Ludacris are legitimately talented big-time modern rappers. I consider most of the Wu-Tang to be relatively underground, so do not include any of them.

Oh, and I think most of the people griping about Britney's weight should take a walk in the mall. 9 out of 10 people they will see over age 14 are in worse shape than Britney. I think she'll continue to tighten up.

Her performance went sideways because she was (purportedly) able to see herself on a huge monitor, and was mortified by how she looked. It's just another example of how ladies' images of their own bodies get totally skewed... which sucks when you have an 8 year old daughter.

I think she is definitely bigger now, but then, at the height of her attractiveness, the "Toxic" vid and the shoot in GQ (I think), she was in outstanding physical condition. You just cannot do 1000 crunches per day when you are high all the time, though. She was never a rail, though, that's why she looked so incredible- she was fit.

As far as the body image of young girls goes, down here in the good old US of A, child obesity is going so out of contol I'm not sure our kids don't need some motivation to get their bums off the couch and onto an athletics field. everybody can play soccer in the neighborhood.

Yeah but the majority of young girls are not going to end up looking like "fat" Brit in the first place...so it's a bad example to hold in front of them.

Fit Brit was truly a level of physicality that most girls won't hit, and most of them won't end up like "Fat" Brit either...but that's STILL a far cry from obesity.

They should be motivated to get off the couch and be active for the sake of health and self confidence - not motivated to get off the couch because a former 10 had a few kids and isn't as fit as she once was (but still an 8)...

The woman can have all the muffin top she wants up there, but it'd still be nice if she bothered to rehearse or maybe stay sober before a performance.

Why are we still talking about this anyway? Oh yeah, 'cause the train wreck is still rollin'...

That's another gong show in itself - Madonna is my generation's Howard Hughes or something - sequestered away from the masses (okay, she's in England instead of being locked up in a Vegas Hotel) and acting extremely odd.

HAH! ...oh you wish. She's not nearly as interesting as Howard Hughes. Now, maybe if we find her (or Britney) wandering through the Nevada desert with Kleenex boxes on her feet, I'll agree with you.

Problem is, it takes a real genius to be just that crazy.

Have a look at her first big video, JT (Baby Hit Me One More Time), and tell me she didn't have the tiniest little paunch of tummy above that school girl outfit. I just cued it up - and btw, thanks so much for that :rolleyes: - and no, she doesn't, her skirt is so tight that it cuts into her when she does certain moves that causes the tiniest bit of roll, but like "magnifying glass" levels (it's worn higher than her VMA shorts though so it's going to do that).


Back then, everyone thought that was the hottest thing ever - today it's not acceptable? To me, her body looked mature and shapely - not sloppy or fat at all.Don't go all Chris Crocker on us, JJR. :D


99% of the women that were mocking her couldn't have carried off that outfit standing still, let alone gyrating around like a glorious hussy. Those women know better than to throw on such an outfit, Britney chose the most unflattering, uncompromising outfit possible and then she compromised on her body.


Her performance went sideways because she was (purportedly) able to see herself on a huge monitor, and was mortified by how she looked. It's just another example of how ladies' images of their own bodies get totally skewed... which sucks when you have an 8 year old daughter. I don't buy that for a second, she was lazy and glossy-eyed and sloppy and being moved around the stage by her background dancers. The rehearsal shown isn't much better and she's dressed there.


I really don't need my kid comparing herself to that "fat" or "out of shape" Britney Spears and coming to the same conclusions about herself. :(Don't let your kid compare herself to Britney at all, Britney is a horrible role-model in every way.

What I am getting at in the big picture is that there is a stigma attached to being overweight, as much as smoking cigarettes is stigmatized.

While Britney does not fit the bill at this point, the stigmatization of being overweight, in my view, is healthy to a degree, in that it discourages people from letting their weight get out of control. Of course, it can go to the other extreme as well- that is why it is equally important to denounce the skeletors out there.


They should be motivated to get off the couch and be active for the sake of health and self confidence - not motivated to get off the couch because a former 10 had a few kids and isn't as fit as she once was (but still an 8)...

Intrinsic motivation in children is about as easy to come by (dare I say "these days"?) as the proverbial snipe. I think our problems as a society with obesity are the product of many different factors, so I may be oversimplifying things with my above statements. It's tough to be slim when you have to hop in a car to go anywhere, take-out is more often than not the rule, and so on.

I actually get almost no incidental exercise myself. I actually have to dedicate time to working out. I think this is a phenomenon that has only asserted itself in the last 50 or so years, hence the outward expansion of the american waistline.

No. That was her ceremonial name that they gave her. :rolleyes: Idiots. It's like when the church gives you a Biblical name of some sort when you get baptised or something. You don't actually use that name, but the church still does it anyhow.

There's nothing really to talk about in regards to Britt anymore, she's fallen from grace or what-ever place they hold high for these over-rated clowns. It's a wonder she hasn't gone on a killing spree with all those Paparazzi idiots following her around to get a shot at her crotch or something like that. If any of us had people taking pictures of us 24/7 we'd loose it big time. I'm not saying she's perfect (far from it) but hey, these guys make a living creating problems & then taking pictures to sell to the highest bidder without any regard for anyones safety. i.e. hundreds rushing her when she has a child in hand (almost drops kid is the headline) to snap a picture of a non-famous child, who now inadvertently because of this gets 15 mins of fame. It's a vicious circle & I'm afraid it won't stop until a few more celebs (Diana) die at their hands. There's more important things to put on CNN or any major news channel than Britney's crotch shot or mental breakdown. This is just in poor taste & really has no bearing on anyones daily lives.

Here's the thing Britt married a loser, who's after the free ride (very smart guy IMHO, but not my style), she then has kids with said loser; who parties all the time leaving her to tend to the children while trying to get through post partum depression IMHO. She then loses it & kicks him & his free spending ways to the curb via text mesage on much music. He then sues for the big payoff, only realizing without the kids; it's not going to be as big as he thought. So he then goes after the kids with some very dubious allegations that make their way to the headlines pronto & boom we have the downward spiral. It continues for her & she looses the kids as drug charges by Kevin yet to be proven make the headlines & things really spiral out of control for her. We get a crotch shot here & there to keep us tuned in & then the big collapse; followed by a trip in the ambulance & finally I predict a trip to the morgue. What headlines they will be, big money makers I'm sure of that. Hey it sells right? Who cares about the poor little two bit trailer wh0re I think someone called her earlier. This type of news is not what I want to watch, it's useless to me.

I (once) thought I'd just like to see Britney flash. It would have been so much better were she still only 17 and wearing that school girl uniform from her first video though.

At 25-26 and with two kids and a c-section scar, I have no interest any more.

Britney Spears ‘freaks out’ schoolchildren

MSNBC contributors
updated 10:35 p.m. ET, Thurs., Jan. 24, 2008

Apparently, creating a frightening environment for her own children isn’t enough for Britney Spears. Now she’s spooking random children in Beverly Hills, reports Usmagazine.com (http://www.usmagazine.com/exclusive_britney_spears_bizarre_school_visit). According to the Web site, a “scantily clad” Britney popped up at neighborhood elementary school, “freaking out” students while telling the grown-ups that she was there to pick up someone else’s kids.

“She was just rambling and confused,” one bystander said of Britney, who appeared just before 3 p.m. dismissal. “She said, ‘I’m here to pick up my kids.’ But then she changed her story and said, ‘They aren’t my kids; I have a new attorney, and I came to pick them up for her.’”

Echoing the thoughts of a nation, the witness added, “All I could think was, ‘Who in their right mind would let her pick up their kids?’”

Britney’s chain-smoking attendance set more than a bad example. As news of the pop star’s presence spread around the school, “some of the kids were freaked out,” a school source told Usmagazine.com. Supervising adults quickly calmed the situation, directing Britney to the school’s back entrance.

Meanwhile, the mystery children Brit said she was there to pick up never materialized. The former Mouseketeer eventually got in her car and left, alone.
