Do you think this article is true?


Recommended Posts

Have any of you read the 2008 rolling stone article about Britney with the black and white photo on the cover? I was just reading it and a lot of the things they quote as what Britney said sound either exaggerated or fake. Examples: 

The card won’t go through, but they keep trying it.

“Please,” begs Ghalib, “get this done quickly.”

One of the girls runs to Britney’s dressing room, explaining the situation through a pink gauze curtain.

A wail emerges from the cubby — guttural, vile, the kind of base animalistic shriek only heard at a family member’s deathbed. “**** these *******,” screams Britney, each word ringing out between sobs. “These idiots can’t do anything right!”

This one sounds really fake to me. It just doesn’t sound like Britney, even in 2007. 

A crush of managers in black shirts and gold name tags try to keep the peace, but the crowd running after Britney gets larger, and now the shopgirls have started to catch up to her, one of them slipping spectacularly in her platform shoes, grazing her elbow. She pulls herself up, mustering the strength to tap Britney’s shoulder. “Um, I’m from the South too,” she mumbles, “and I was wondering if I could get a picture with you for my little sister.”

Britney turns to Ghalib and grabs his arm. “I don’t want her talking to me!” she screams. She whirls around and stares the girl deep in the eyes, her lips almost vibrating with anger. “I don’t know who you think I am, *****,” she snarls, “but I’m not that person.”

 

anyways, it’s a pretty interesting article, but I just wanted to know if you all thought it was accurate. Rolling stone seems pretty reliable, but I don’t know about this one. Here’s the link if you want to read it: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/the-tragedy-of-britney-spears-rolling-stones-2008-cover-story-254735/

I believe it tbh. Raw Britney was so much more interesting than Workout Recluse Britney 

lol I can't with the comments I'm reading. It's like, if this was true, there's nothing "interesting" about "raw Britney". But an incident like this isn't any proof that she was "unwell" either (

Well at the time she was getting so much attention and being mobbed everywhere, I think it would make anyone lash out and feel like that. It's a combination of problems. She prob gets irritable in tho

This was a legit article...Britney was extremely unwell...I'm not sure how much has actually improved

You know.... I think about it and I wonder if anxiety really gets to her so bad that she lashes out.  IDK... I just wish she and her team werent ashamed of the truth.

honestly.... I dont think anxiety is the real issue. There is no way they would demand her medical stuff remains private just because of anxiety. It has to be something bigger,

She prob gets irritable in those situations as any human would. I just don't think her team has done anything to truly help her. I obviously am not in the know, but based on the facts we do know and the Britney I see with my own eyes, no one appears to have helped her at all and only increased her anxiety and irritability. It really is tragic.

It's like, if this was true, there's nothing "interesting" about "raw Britney". But an incident like this isn't any proof that she was "unwell" either (even less that she needed a conservatorship), nor isn't a reason to get upset with Britney.

I mean, everything that was going on in her life at the moment surely put her in a really bad state of mind to begin with. Maybe she was already upset for other reasons. Then on top of that, things like this, the card not going through, which is already embarrassing for any normal person, it must be even worse for a famous one, and with a crowd gathering around her, how on Earth was she supposed to turn around and with a smile on her face tell this unknown and impertinent woman that it wasn't the time to take a picture? 

Yes, thinking rationally and with a cold mind you could say that it wasn't the right thing to do (arguably, because even without being 100% sure that this actually happened, I'm already more mad at the woman than Britney, and I think I would've been even more rude with her, especially if there was physical contact). But when you're going through a moment like that, you're upset, you're crying, you're embarrassed, you're gonna unleash your fury and frustration at the first target that places in front of you, that's totally normal and expected. You're just a timebomb that will explode at the slightest provocation.

I mean, any normal person that sees someone else that is going through a moment like this,  the last thing you wanna do is go and talk to them and bother them more, even less ask for a picture, like, for god's sake. You leave the person alone, unless you're an impertinent, imprudent, inconsiderate or plain stupid.

True... and she seemed so fine in 2015-2017... BUT I was thinking back on how controlled meet and greets are and I wonder if its controlled to ease her anxiety.  Also, with the dementia diagnosis - it takes,me back to Circus tour when she was saying "Merry Christmas" sarcasticly in the summer. Lol. IDK... just trying to make sense of a ridiculous situation.

also last year there were a lot of reports of her having severe problems and they always mentioned her memory.  I cant imagine her having dementia but something isnt right and hasnt been for a while. I honeslty believe that her meds stopped working last year and thats why they hospitalized her. Just look at the difference between 2016 and 2018ney while performing. Its fascinating ,,, and not normal. I just think they totally f**ked up the keeping it quiet part and made themsleves look like morons. Also all this secrecy leads to us either not beliving anything they say or to us filling in the blanks by ourselves and Im sure its not correct most of the time.

I think she went to rehab because the drugs weren't working anymore and they needed to adjust/change her meds meaning she would need to wean off of meds which can be very dangerous...that's my guess at least. :)

same. I understand that Britney wanted to keep it quiet. Especially if she didnt even want to go there but the way they handled it was dumb.

Or something smaller and nonexistent. 

Either to protect her or themselves, they’d want to keep her records sealed. 

come on... look at how drastically she changed between 2016 and 2018. thats not normal.

I mean even her eyes... look kind of crazy. And I dont mean that in a "she is crazy" way its just it looks bizzarre and frantic and just off.

Don’t you think medicine would play into her lethargic appearance more than mental struggles?  

Possibly medicines that were forced on her to keep her compliant, if we are to believe the reports.

I think she had a bad medication mix during FF and they figured it out during POM and perfected it in 2015-2016 and then late 2017 it stopped working. A lot of people who need medication take a long time to figure out what the right mix is for them. Its not an overnight thing. Also when you get medication, you have to wait a while to see the results and once you have those you cant just stop and try something new within a day. They probably realized that FF meds werent working but didnt want to get her off meds during her tour.

Obviously I could be completly wrong but this is just my guess what happened,
