you drive me crazy

it's been a week since the disastrous performance from britney spears on the 2007 MTV VMA awards, and while many in the media have slammed britney...in a surprising move i will stand up for her. poor britney. why didn't anybody around her tell her she wasn't ready for this performance? why is britney being held accountable for her actions when clearly she is not mentally stable and unable to make any rational decisions? MTV should be ashamed of themselves for using an obviously crazy britney for high ratings. to let her perform and then having sarah silverman get up directly after and mock her is just plain cruel. it was obvious they were setting britney up for a major failure and she didn't have the common sense to see it coming. where were her friends and family to say...find an outfit that fits...or...maybe you should sing live.....or even...hey try actually doing some dance moves instead of awkwardly rubbing yourself.....i blame those around her for the disaster that opened the VMA's this year. yes britney is a performer and under normal circumstances should know when she is capable of doing something, but britney...the girl who shaved her head, almost dropped her baby, attacked a car with and umbrella, and showed her privates to the world...obviously should be considered "mentally ill" and unable to make rational decisions. it's not very often that i feel bad for celebrities who use their money and fame to live a crazy and destructive lifestyle, and up until now britney was low on my radar, but seeing her fumble her way through a performance that never should have happened was embarrassing and honestly...heart-breaking. my only hope is that this event will help britney realize what she is doing wrong with her life and make a drastic change....but i doubt it.

I completely agree with you. She's definitely not at the top of her game. I am not a Britney fan or ever thought I'd feel bad for her, but come on people! Yes, her outfit was not the best fit on her, but I felt bad that they were saying she was out of shape. Are you kidding me? If I had a tummy like that after having two kids I'd want to show it off too, although I wouldn't! I didn't think she looked out of shape, but she really should have covered up a little more.

Britney's VMA performance was just downright embarrassing. I agree--nobody is looking out for her. It must be sad to be on the top like that because everyone is thinking completely about themselves and their best interests and people have no problem betraying you.

I am there with you! Why isn't someone making sure she is getting help, and why doesn't she realize she needs it!! It is sad when you are rooting for K-Fed to get the kids!

Seriously - where are her friends? Obviously she is not getting the support she needs in SO MANY areas of her life. I'm pretty much counting on my friends (and even distant acquaintances) to stop me if I ever come close to such an embarrassing display.

I felt especially bad for her when Sarah Silverman was making fun of her. Plus, everyone keeps talking about how overweight she is and that pisses me off. If she's overweight, then I'm morbidly obese!

Good one Angie!! It's like Michael Jackson, just a bunch of "yes" people around that don't do you any good.
But, how could any one ever be sane after breaking up with Justin???? She probably regrets that move every day!!

Okay, I did not see the performance until I watched it on your blog. I have to say that I liked Britneys Spears in the beginning of her career but lost interest in her along the way until now. I too feel sorry for her in so many ways, but also feel compelled to say I fall into the "Tough Love" catagory when it comes to drug/alcohol abuse and the decisions that come along with it. But I am also a strong believer that when someone recognizes it in themselves people should try to help them. Britney doesn't seem to have anyone willing to step up and do that for her. I hope she is not considered overweight after having two children back to back or I am in serious trouble...Her performance was lacking compared to past shows but not as bad as I thought it could have been. At most she showed a lack of enthusiasm for being on stage. All I can say is it is soo sad...
