Firstly, let me say, I am a Britney Spears fan. I like her. I have not always liked all of her music. She was born in McComb, MS (1981); raised in Kentwood, LA; and baptized in the Southern Baptist Church. I have been to Kentwood, nice place. She is what i would call, ” A Good Ole Girl”.
She has had a tough life. I am working from memory, but i do believe that she was a Mouseketter for Disney, early in her life. There she met Justin Timberlake – a relationship that was painful and notorious. At one time, she married one of her neighbors from Louisiana spontaneously; then had it annulled immediately. She got divorced from the father of her children and had her kids taken from her.
Musically speaking, her early songs were innocent enough (I believe her natural talent is in Country Music). However, later on, the videos and songs were, what I would call, “occultic”. Particularly the song, “I’m A Slave For You”. It started getting weird, and she started spiraling out of control: racey pictures, encounters with police, questionable videos, etc.
Take a good look at the picture at the top of this article. That is Britney right before her conservatorship started. I hate to say it but perhaps it is best that her father has taken over her financial and personal life. It is for her own good.
However, I am not happy with her father stepping in now to be the big man coming to the rescue. From my understanding, it was her parents who got her in this mess from the start – the music business. Why did they not save her when she started to go down hill?
I do not want to say too much. What a lousy situation. Now she has to depend on the very people who got her in this mess. Either way, I think it is for her own good that someone else handle things for her before she injures herself. The internet says that her records sales are greater after her conservatorship was instated?
Aristotle writes that a fool is a fool by choice and that no sympathy should be given to them. In the case of Britney Spears, I just cannot come to that conclusion.
