J-pop forums usually neglect having a thread for her =P but I still like her. I used to be anti-Britney...but now, I feel sorry for her. She's going thru alot of crap and she needs loyalty from supporters. She's got so many haters it's ridiculous. Why? Because she was seen as one of the most beautiful girls to ever grace Earth??? Because she was so popular??? I disagreed when she went skanky, but now...I think she's trying to pick up the pieces of her life. I think she'll get her act together + come back on the top. After the whole "shaving her head" incident...I think she's realized the disaster that is her life. I just hope she recovers + comes back a mature lady and doesn't try to revive that immature, skanky image. She's beautiful on the inside, I just know it...

She's officially done! No It's really painful to see her photos and videos ever since she got married. She now totally wrecked and on the verge of going crazy, see how she shave her head bald and getting drunk and hit the reporters car with her umbrella, it's not what a normal person would do.

I think her fame has pushed her to become a really weird and in a way dumb person. I don't know but I think she's passed her peak and would never be able to make a comeback again. This is what happen to all the American teen idols, they just aren't smart enough to lead a good life and most of them end up destroying themselves due to stupid decision they made in life. Her marriage with Kevin, IMO, is a joke. Most celebrities are just too dumb and shallow to find the right person for themselves. In then end it's all about physical attraction, fame and money which will wear off sooner than you can possibly hoped for. I doubt there's much "true love" in those celebrities marriage, which is why there's so many divorces and breaking up.

I feel sad for her children to be honest. Having a weird celebrity mom who can't even take care of herself gotta be a really bad experience as the children grows up.

I have no idea how she became huge in the first place. I feel she hasn't got any special talents. She just goes with the flow and does whatever is popular. Her songs are just overpromoted, having a heavy airplay until they are shoved down your throat. I don't mind an artist becoming sexy. Hell, I like sexy artists who are confident to show off their bodies, but becoming thrashy is another thing. It's disrespectful and it's giving of a message that she's literally.. a you-know-what. People like her and Paris Hilton give blondes and females a very bad name and are terrible role models.

Her attitude and lack of intelligence are what irk me most. Maybe the fact that she suddenly became an instant star made her this way, but she cannot throw the blame on others to show how "hard" her life was. I don't feel sorry for Britney. Whatever bad things occur to her were brought by her. She married that loser K-Fed, became overweight and she let him cheat on her. She was stupid and superficial to allow her marriage to degenerate to such a sorry state. Then she started partying, getting drunk, shaving her head and doing a load of dumb things. Pathetic...

The reason why so many hate Britney is not because she's beautiful (man I think she looks pretty fugly right now) and she seriously never was "one of the most beautiful girls to ever grace Earth". If you told me people are jealous of Nicole Kidman's beauty I would've believed you but Britney can only be defined as "fairly good looking" in her early career. I don't think that many people hated her only because she was popular, but because of her attitude which has made people realise she's only a has-been who can only get the headlines when she shaves her head.

Hmmm...I respect both of your oppinions...but I agree more with eyn. Sorry, Rinoa...you just sound like you're ranting more than respectfully stating your oppinion. Embarassed It's like trying to get me to feel sorry for Koda Kumi Blank stare I would rant too, so I understand how you're feeling. No hard feelings Smile I still like you.

But anyway, Britney is human...and every mistake she makes is highlighted -n- she can't tollerate it...any normal human would've cracked too from all this years of being stalked by reporters, papparazzi, and such. Japan is different; Ayu has walked up & down streets before -n- not had to tollerate that kind of stress. That's why they haven't went loony; the press is better in Japan...they try to build them up more than pull them down. American paparazzi stands outside her house -n- everything. When she tries to go to rehab, whenever she comes out to play a lil' tennis...there they are; just waiting to get pictures of her. It's annoying -n- I feel for her. Right now, she's withdrawn and in a child-like state...I mean, she's writing smilys on herself -n- such...like a 10yr old. =S It's sad what has happened to her. Being the most sought after, admired, and stalked artist has it's downsides. Her life isn't peachy.

I am sorry too but I don't get why you think I am ranting. Also I don't see how my comments differ from eyn. Most of the points I mentioned are actually factual events and it seems you don't like them. I don't think you really understand - I don't have any respect for people like Britney, because she brought most of the terrible problems upon herself and now she wants everyone to pity her.

I think Britney had her life spoon-fed to her and she grew up being rich, comfortable and spoilt. She had all the chance of the world to get a decent career but she threw it away. She had the chance to find a decent guy who would treat her well but she chose that loser K-Fed, who did his best to leech money from her and cheat as much as possible. I understand if a person is in a relationship with a bad person but letting him treat her like that through those years was far from self-respecting.

Of course she is human and even more so (since she's an actress) she should be careful if her actions are highlighted. For many teen kids she's a role model and if she does something bad, it is possible that they will imitate her. The mistakes she makes are seriously unresponsible and even dangerous. She's a mom of two kids and she has been reported to drive with her baby on her lap. If she doesn't care about herself it's her buisness to a point, but risking her baby's life is.. sadly dangerous.

All artists have paparazzi constantly chasing them. It's the price you pay for being a celebrity and they have to be prepared for it. Strangely enough, most celebrities do not break down like Britney, they only occassionaly get angry and move on. Others just don't care about the media and do their own thing. Only someone like her or Paris Hilton seem to be able to give them even more fire to publish negative things. I'm tired of seeing their drunk photos along with the countless accidental exposure photos.

Japan is not different. Ayu is constantly being followed by paparazzi everywhere, even in Asia. There are frequently tabloid posting an Ayu-rumour. The weekly highlight right now is that they are claiming she is going to get married. She herself mentions how she cannot go out alone and constantly requires her bodyguards. Japan also has a yearly poll, where people vote (girls usually) on which celebrity they hate most and Ayu is usually there. However I have yet to see Ayumi shaving her head or doodling on herself, just because paparazzi are obnoxious. And this is from a woman who was abandoned by her dad when she was a toddler, her mom worked a lot and her grandma (the closest person to her) died just when she was recording her debut single.

That's not true. I've heard so many tabloids about Ayumi getting drunk, having STD, attending gay bars and how she has a terrible temper. Also if I had a dollar every time they said they broke up/cheating on each other/fighting, I'd be a millionare. Seriously. And when she went to Hong Kong it was a nightmare. The tabloids went crazy over how once she went to this village and the people were "upset", how once "she flashed her bra" and after the Eason incident they claimed she was crying/calling him stupid/getting drunk/rubbing against a man and a whole load of junk. Most are false exxagerated claims but Ayumi is still a happy and stable person and could care less about what a stupid tabloid writes. Of course there are also similar tabloid articles about other Japanese celebrities.

No celebrity has a peachy life - you're constantly in the spotlight, you have to deal with it. This does not excuse Britney to behave so irresponsibly or completely ruin her life. Heck, no one's life is easy but it doesn't excuse people of choosing bad mistakes repeatedly until people start questioning your sanity. And she has the guts to go around blaiming others for the mistakes she created herself. I've read how her latest book will show the people who did wrong actions to her: Timberlake, K-Fed and her mom. (She blames her mom for her messy marriages) Also recently she's been fighting with her father because he's upset at how Britney is not taking care of herself and taking it out on her mom. Oddly enough she seems to fail to see that she is an independent individual and should take the decisions herself and take responsibility too.

I'm just a little puzzled trying to figure out how although these ex-partners "treated her so wrong", she didn't think of dumping them and dating someone more decent maybe? Also she only realised this like... years later after all her friends had been telling her this fact. She let them treat her wrong and now she wants to get some pity from the public. Sorry to say.. but it takes two to tango.

Also Eleanor Roosevelt said "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." If she finds celebrity life so hard, she should quit and live a different life though I have my doubts that she will ever get her life together. And I'm not sorry to say that I have absolutely zero respect for people like her.

I totally shoulda bought some tickets for the "M & M's" concert she had here. ahaha I feel bad for the people that spent up to $500 (oh yes, it was on the local news here. But not on national for some reason..they just said like $150) she only sang for 10 minutes. And she didn't even really sing!

omg, Rinoa...I'm not even gonna pretend I read all that. I made it thru the middle and...I think I started to doze off. You have too much anger right now...relax...and you're not gonna convince me. Sorry... Confused I didn't say I respect her...never did I say that...but I don't hate her either. I'm not about to sit here -n- critize her when I don't even know her nor do I know her situations throughly. In Asia...besides stupid & false Chinese tabloids & scary Korean anti-fans...it's not that bad. It doesn't matter to me anyway...you're obviously not gonna be convinced, so I'm not even gonna try. My point is that...Britney isn't a bad person like you seem to make her out to be. People do bad things sometimes...but it shouldn't condemn them forever. Maybe Britney will be different; have you ever thought of that? Maybe she'll stop being so shallow -n- actually do something that surprises us. She may not, but we should at least give her the benefit of a doubt. I can't stand Koda Kumi and I know she may never do something like that, but I still believe in her enough to think..."hey, maybe one day...she'll change!"...because I'm positive. It's good to be positive.

Now pleeeeease stop this. I don't want to cause trouble on this forum or make the staff angry with this dispute. I'm tired of arguing on forums. I'm trying to be better...I really am. Still have nothing against you, I promise. I think you're cool... Smile just right now......I'm gonna run away.....! Nod

Anger? You're not even close. I don't care about Britney. Never did. I am just horrified to see someone who thinks we should throw a pity party for her after she brought everything upon herself. I do feel sorry for her poor little kids though, since they were thrown in all this without wanting this. I never condemned her and if she gets her life together, good for her. However right now all her actions are pointing otherwise. Maybe if you weren't dozing off you would have noticed that.

Also it's just as bad in Japan and even worse in HK. If you read what I said, she cannot even go out, without the tabloids on her track. Ever heard of that korean artist who committed suicide because of a load of hateful fans? And I can't see how you manage to compare Kumi with Britney. Kumi never got married with some guy who treated her badly, she didn't risk anyone's life and she always respected everyone around her. And why should she change? It's not like she is doing anything wrong.

You seem to fail to see the bigger picture. You don't even bother to read my posts (or apparently read the news...) but it still makes it okay for you to say that I'm angry and ranting, which is not very nice or an intelligent observation.

I showed you in a logical and factual manner that Britney is not someone I will ever feel sorry for. And I "didn't make her look bad", so don't blame me about her crazy endeavours. Yet you seem to be holding some sort of monologue about how we should feel sorry for Britney. Maybe if you really want people to see your point you should read and consider what others post. Then discussing it in a mature and intelligent manner.

If you cannot deal with a discussion don't post a thread. I don't see how it makes it okay for you but terrible when someone disagrees with your opinion. I saw the "temper tantrum" on the other thread about Koda Kumi. You're not trying to be better, you just want to shut up whoever doesn't agree with you. That's not very mature. I'm not bashing Britney, I'm just pointing out true facts and apparently you're sticking your fingers in your ears while you sing "lalala I can't hear" and then making these claims how I have this angry hate for her, when I usually spare my hate for somebody I know in real life rather than some random tv personality. I just am sorry to see teens imitating her when she's not an ideal role model.

I think that no-one will take the come-back seriously after all what happened around her lately.

Really could go either way...
I'm not a fan of her music, but I like her a whole lot better now that she's not pretending to be perfect anymore.

There's only one way I could have respect for her again.

... Seppuku.

Nah. That doesn't work nowadays.

If she wants my respect she would have to solve world hunger, win a Nobel prize, end the war with Iraq and America in a peaceful way, or cure cancer.

^ Yeah true. Her first album was pretty good for an emerging star imo and was well marketed. However when time went by Britney went to take really bad choices. Guess being a star went up to her head.

Ahh, Britney Spears...where do I begin?

She was fairly pretty in the beginning. Nice facial structure, a cute smile, good proportioned body. Her voice isn't anything special, but she wasn't off-key and her songs were good enough to garner a large fanbase of young teens. I loved her back then, I really did. I thought she was ten times better than Christina Aguilera, who was known as "Xtina" during that time. But life is constantly changing. Britney married Kevin Federline, Christina made a comeback, and I...grew up.

When she came to big decisions, she screwed up. I don't blame her for that. We all mess up a bazillion times in life. But she refused to learn from her mistakes. That's what gets to me. She refuses to act like the adult she is. After the divorce with Kevin, it would have been the best thing for her to stay away from the media. She should've taken time to take care of her kids, love them and care for them like a good mother. Teach them not to repeat her mistakes and make good decisions. Instead, she's traipsing around shaving her head off and believing that she is still the famous seventeen-year old she was. God, if my mother (who has made almost as many bad choices as Britney) did things like that, I don't know what would happen to me and my younger sister.

She had lots of potential, there's no denying that. It's a shame that she isn't one of the people I want my sister to look up to.

Hope no one isn't offended by my opinion, but hey, it's who I am.
