Spare Us the Britney Breakdown

Is there anybody out there (other than that strange kid crying on Youtube.com) who gives a damn about Britney Spears anymore? Watching her self-destruct was interesting for a short while – kind of like seeing a spider eating a fly – but now it’s getting old.

Britney is yesterday’s news – just another sad example of what is happening to young people throughout this country. Spears has alienated her friends, her parents and most of her fans – and should be grateful that the paparazzi even care about her anymore. She is a tragic character and we love personal tragedies in this country. It makes us feel better about our lives, which must seem problem-free when compared to Britney’s daily drama.

Spears is arrogant and thinks that she can do whatever she wants. She obviously feels that people should just adapt to her boorish and out-of-control behavior. The only problem is that judges, publicists, drug counselors and record companies refuse to go with her program.

Britney is a major accident waiting to happen and if she does not wake up, she’ll end up just like Janis Joplin did. The only difference is that Joplin was talented.

This appeared this morning on TMZ:

TMZ has confirmed Britney Spears booked herself with the LAPD Monday night on misdemeanor charges of hit and run.Wearing a black mini dress, black leather jacket and sporting silver chains around her neck, she walked into the Van Nuys jail last night and did the deed.LAPD told us "at approximately 9:25 PM Miss Britney Spears checked into the Van Nuys County Jail for a court ordered booking. She was put through standard booking procedures which included booking photographs, fingerprinting and collection of information. Britney was at all time cooperative in the process. She was there approximately 45 minutes."

We're also told she was never put in a holding cell, and she was polite and courteous to the officers. We're also told cops offered her the back entrance -- but she declined, opting to go in the front door. FOX 11 Los Angeles caught Brit on her way in and out of the jail. The L.A. City Attorney charged Spears in September with one count of hit and run causing property damage and one count of driving without a valid California license.

Both charges are misdemeanors, each carrying a maximum of 6 months in jail. The charges stem from an August 6 incident in L.A. where Spears was in a private parking lot in the San Fernando Valley and rammed into a parked car.
