Britney Spears melt down
February 25, 2007 1:40pm CST
I just want peoples opinions on the matter. My other half and i were laying in bed watching entertainment tonight and they had the topic of Britney and her rehab and hair raising antics and I said that - I felt sorry for her. She is so young (i myself am only 26 with 2 kids) She has JUST had a baby , shes getting divorced , she is trying to be young, all the mean time she is in the spotlight. My other half said its all about 'choice' and that she had the choice to stick herself in those situations. and therefor must pay the price. Yes thats true but i dont believe people give her enough slack. Nor do we think about the fact that she is human and bound to make mistakes. I am not a Britney fan I just feel for this young mother who is trying to find her identity in the world. what do you think?

i agree with you both! she was groomed from childhood to be a star (remember, she was on the mickey mouse club and star search before that) and is probably incapable of really thinking things out.. i'm sure she's never had to make a decision on her own, really. but at the same time, there are plenty of people who go through child-star-dom and turn out fine; ryan gosling, christina aguilera, and justin timberlake were all in her cast of MMC and they aren't going nuts and shaving their head. i think a part of it also has to do with her limited education; doesn't she really only have something like an 8th grade education? and she's dealing with hangers-on and two babies and a "full staff" since she probably doesn't even know how to do a load of laundry. i feel pity for her, but then again, if she really wanted to pursue a career doing vocal work, she could have done so many things... voice work, stage work, etc. you never see broadway stars dealing with all this paparazzi mess, so i kind of think they brought it on themselves. there are other ways to make a living -- we all do it every day. phew! that seemed like a long rant. let me know what you think

I think that it may be a possible meltdown due to postpartem depression as well maybe? - I mean just having a baby and getting divorced is hard enough to make anyone go a little nutty. As a woman - I have done some FUNKY things with my hair after a breakups just cause its like 'recleansing' yourself making yourself anew..... never have gone to shaving my head but hey to everyones choice right lol. I think britney is young and she has enough people behind her to pick her up - polish her and make her "perfect" for society. My other half had also stated that she should sell most of her houses and just retire and drop out of the spotlight and live a peacefull life .. or she will end up like anna nichole- which is a whole new can of worms.

i think her very public behavior defintely indicates some kind of chemical imbalance, but i must admit i have just gone crazy on my hair before, too (luckily there weren't clippers nearby, just some scissors). i think she looks good with the bald head! i was also under the impression that everyone in that industry wears some other person's hair -- so what's the big deal? i just hope that rehab works for her! i've never heard of anyone going into rehab as a bargaining tool -- most the people that i know who have gone have a)had an intervention or b) had one lucid, sober moment of clarity where they realized they were killing themselves. (those two are not mutually exclusive). mostly, though, i just feel pity for her. she's a clueless young mother with TWO little ones still in diapers and a divorce working itself out.
