Britney Not On Drugs, Just Insane

Life & Style is reporting that Britney Spears’ blood test came back clean, meaning she wasn’t on drugs and alcohol when she decided to basically hold her son hostage in her house last night.

I wouldn’t be so sure.

Whatever the cause, this is a person who’s rapidly deteriorating before our eyes. If she wants to ruin herself, fine. But no 2-year-old should have to watch mommy get strapped to a gurney and hauled off to the mental ward for a 72-hour psych exam.  The way the police responded – sending a dozen officers – leads one to believe that they considered this a hostage situation. Which can’t bode well for her idea of getting custody of her kids.

I don’t know what can be said about this that hasn’t already been said. It does speak, however, to the idea that maybe it’s not such a great idea for parents to push their kids into showbiz before they hit puberty, now matter how cute or talented they may be. Somebody close to the situation needs to step up before something happens to those two kids, whom Spears seems to regard like a teen girl would a couple of puppies. What’s really frightening is how much better of a parent Kevin Federline is.

    I can only say that she should have stepped out of the limelight a year ago…taken a step back and regroup. She clearly lost it when Kevin left her and never recovered from it. She needs counseling and fast…but privately.

    The photo hounds are ridiculous. I can tell you that I will NEVER buy another smut mag from here on out as long as I live. I will admit that I have always loved them..they were my private couch sitting guilty pleasure. NO MORE!!! The degreee that they have escalated is outrageous. We seriously should all take a stand and say enough is enough!!! I don’t want to see it anymore. These celebrities need respect and privacy- Just like we do. Can you even imagine every detail of your every day covered minute to minute…on the latest news? I used to believe they signed up for a degree of this…but not the way they play the game anymore.

    I think it has gone just too far. Do we need another suicide to realize that?

    Not that K-Fed is a better parent, he’s just in control of himself and his life where ol Britney isn’t.
    Have to support him for stepping up for his kids.

    Debra makes good points. Though gossip has always been a factor in Hollywood, this is a whole new ballgame. Not all celebrities can rely on their artistic virtue to stay in the limelight. Which pretty much implicates all the ones who are stumbling drunk down the sidewalks of West Hollywood. They do it at their own risk. Celebrities put themselves up for public scrutiny; that’s just part of the life. But these guys chasing people while they’re trying to take their kids somewhere should be out-of-bounds.
