I have never weighed in on this because, well, there is just too many other important things that occupy my time. But I think the time has come for my first…and last…rant on this subject.
Three things have to happen in order for Brittany Spears to straighten out.
1) Put the career, and especially the associated partying, on hold and concentrate on raising your kid. If you have the talent, taking a five to seven year hiatus won’t hurt. Get out of the limelight and be the best Mom you can.
2) The media has to drop their nauseating obsession with Spear’s parenting skills. No she’s not the perfect Mom…who is? With all the other trauma and tragedy going on the world that needs attention, Brittany gets top billing? Please…
3) YOU…yes you out there have to stop buying and watching all the BS crap in magazines and TV. The media has no conscience, morals or soul. They dish out what WE ASK FOR. Stop buying People, Star and all the other crap tabloids that are nothing but made up information. Stop watching complete crap like Inside Edition, Hollywood Access or whatever the hell it’s called. It’s all a bunch of crap. But as long as it has RATINGS – which means you and I are munching our KFC in front of the tube every night – it will continue. The choice is UP TO YOU.
I close with the classic speech from Network, that still sums it all up some 30 years later.
