I’ll have to admit feeling a bit bad for her, as she’s a person regardless of how ridiculous her performace was. But, I think this situation here can become here wake-up call and be the catalyst for her changing her lifestyle… or not.
I think it’s probably crystal clear to her now that it was a big mistake to try and do this performance in her current state – mentally and physically.
For the common person often there is this thing that happens when you get married and have kids. The reality of responsibility sets in. You realize that you are the sole provider for your family and suddenly your life becomes about making their lives better. So things like partying all night, drinking, drugs, and numerous other behaviors can become a threat to your ability to provide a healthy environment for your family.
In Britney’s case, she’s got a boatload of cash, so she really doesn’t have to maintain a consistent job and provide. That cash also allows her to have other people watch her children when it’s inconvenient for her to do so – like when she wants to go party.
Britney basically needs a reason to change her behavior. Maybe the VMA’s gave her a shot of reality that she needs — she isn’t the Britney of years past. That doesn’t mean she’s washed up, it just means that she needs to evolve into a responsible adult. It’s her personal life that is destroying her professional life. She seems to be placing a high value on revitalizing her career, and seemingly prioritizing it higher than family and her own health.
Britney… Get off drugs and alchohol and concentrate on your family. When you get healthy, you are going to be happier with yourself and that’s going to open up creativity that you just can’t even connect with right now. No one knows better than you how much work it took to build your career, and drugs and alchohol weren’t a part of the formula. Remove them from the picture and work on the things in your life that are creating your need to escape via those vices.
