  1. It's really sad. I don't think it's just Hollywood either, our society as a whole treats aging women appallingly, making fun of them, not taking them seriously or just acting like they're invisible (while aging men are more often seen as a "silver fox" type of attractive, or at least respected for their experience and knowledge). If the average woman in the street is already under so much pressure to keep looking youthful, I can't imagine what it must be like for someone in Madonna's position. I wouldn't want to be in her shoes as an aging superstar and s** symbol, not in a million years.

  2. Honestly, I agree. At this point, we don't need more docs to raise awareness (the first doc was different, because it really opened people's eyes to what was going on). But since the first doc, things have changed. The world knows about Britney's situation and things are being handled in the courts and through the legal system. Britney has a competent lawyer who is on her side and who is taking care of business, and, as far I'm concerned, he is the only one who needs to know about all the ins and outs of the conservatorship. A new doc is not going to do anything to help Britney. On the contrary, it might drag up painful details from her past again, when she really just wants to be left alone so she can heal from her trauma.

    All these media corporations jumping on the bandwagon to get a piece of the pie feels kind of icky to me. In the end, it kind of feels like everyone still wants a piece of Britney, they're still profiting from her and her pain and trauma. So yes, unless part of the profit goes to some charity fighting conservatorship abuse or something like that, I'm very skeptical as to the intentions behind this (i.e. turning a quick profit now that this is a "hot topic"). I'd rather wait until Britney is free and able to tell her own story, on her own terms -- or, you know, not tell us ****, because that's her right, too.

  3. I don't think he's changed at all. There's a scene in the reboot of The Hills a few years back, where Mischa Barton confronts him about the horrible bullying and body shaming he subjected her to for years & which left her traumatised (like shaming her for her cellulite, calling her gross etc., when she was a young girl in her early 20s and he was a grown-*** 30 year old man who should've known better). So anyway, during this confrontation he apologises to her, but she says she can't forgive him, because the impact he had on her & so many other young vulnerable girls at the time (especially Britney, but others too) is not something you can simply undo with one weak apology. When she refuses to forgive him, he basically throws a tantrum, becomes really angry and then throws up his hands and walks out.

    I found that so telling. If he was truly sorry and ashamed for what he did in the past, he would respect that people are under no obligation to forgive him, but try to make ammends anyway. Like, you don't apologise to be forgiven, you apologise because you truly mean it and feel sorry, and then you leave it up to the other person how they react to it. The fact that he instantly threw a tantrum when he didn't get what he wanted, tells me it's all just a show. It's still all about him, his public image, and his ego, not about the people he hurt or about truly making ammends.

  4. I had just turned 20 and was starting my third year at University. I was pretty lonely at the time, I had people I hung out with but no one I really connected with or could be myself around. I was living in a foreign country away from my family and my childhood friends, and I had a flatmate who was ten years older than me and who was very toxic and controlling and often really mean -- at the time I was not assertive at all so most of the time I just allowed her to bully me and that really got me down. And apart from that I didn't know who I was, had zero self-worth, was drawn to toxic men and ****boys, all that good stuff :pieceofwhat_britney_awkward:

    Life is so much better now that I've just turned 30. Getting older sure has its downsides (I went to a festival this weekend and I'm still recuperating from the alcohol & lack of sleep, the days when I could stay up all night partying and still be productive the next day are loooong gone lmao, as are the days when I could eat whatever the hell I wanted and not work out and still not gain any weight). But my god, I would never want to be 20 again.

  5. I think it will be a small wedding with a few close friends and family (not most of Britney's family though :jl_jamie_lynn_awkward_cringe_eek:). On the beach in Hawaii would be perfect, with lots of flowers, cakes, and a Disney princess dress for Britney. There will be kids playing, and when it gets dark there will be fairy lights and dancing. "That's Where You Take Me" or "When I Found You" would be so beautiful for the opening dance :kyliecry_crying_tears_jenner_wipe_sad: As one of Britney's biggest supporters, Cher sings a few songs too, and afterwards she and Britney share a strawberry sundae. When the party is over Sam & Britney will ride off on horses since they both love horse-back riding, to a secret secluded location for their honeymoon (or maybe they'll sail away on a boat). That very night, on their wedding night, Britney gets pregnant and has a baby girl by next summer.


    Anyway that's just my imagination, makes me happy imagining this. But in all honesty, the less I know about their wedding the happier I'll be, because that means they've managed to keep it private and that's what I wish most for them.

  6. This makes me so so happy. These two are awesome together and I wish them an amazing wedding and all the luck and happiness and goofy fun in the world. I can't even put into words how much I feel she deserves this (and Sam, too, for supporting her and being there for her every step of the way).

    (also, any babies they make are gonna be sooo beautiful)

  7. She looks beautiful at any weight, but honestly, for me she has looked the prettiest when she's a little bit heavier. Like on the 2007 VMA's, or in the "Gimme More" video, I know a lot of people were making fun of her back then for looking "fat", but to me that just looks like a normal body of a woman who likes to have fun, have a drink, have a nice meal once in a while, rather than denying herself all of these things. And whenever she was a little bit heavier it meant she was in control of her body, rather than being forced to follow a certain regime.

    In my country we call this (rough translation) "the belly of the good life" --  having a little bit of a belly just shows that you're having fun and living your best life.

    Again, Britney looks good at any weight, I don't care if she's thin or chubby as long as she's happy, but it kind of breaks my heart that she's been conditioned to be so preoccupied with her weight. I just hate the people who have done this to her.

    Its disgusting

    uhm excuse me?? What is disgusting about a woman being confident in herself and showing off her body? If a man posted a shirtless selfie, would you call that disgusting too? If you think her body, or any human body for that matter, is something to be ashamed of or to be disgusted by, then I'm sad for you.

    I don't think there's anything wrong or unstable about this picture. She's just being herself, this is the Britney we saw in Chaotic, she's never been a prim and proper goody-two-shoes, she's always had a wild side. That's part of why I love her so much! We just haven't seen that side of her in a long time because she hasn't been allowed to be herself under the conservatorship.

    Anyway she looks smoking hot. Free those nipples girl!

  9. I read some books about parasocial relationships a while ago because I find it super interesting, and the way they describe it in this article is really simplistic and overly negative.

    In truth, almost everyone engages in parasocial relationships in one way or another. Whether it's daydreaming about someone you have a crush on, or being emotionally invested in a character in a TV show, or being a fan of a pop star. Or cultures where people are in touch with the spirits of their ancestors for example, those are parasocial relationships too in a way. It's something that has always existed throughout history and all over the world in some shape or form and probably always will, it's not limited to pop music fans.

    And also, apparently it's actually beneficial to have these types of relationships: they give a lot of people joy, and they also bring people together -- like, for instance, we wouldn't all be on this forum talking to each other if we weren't all Britney fans, so our parasocial relationship to Britney actually also connects us, and I think that's beautiful in a way? There's also a theory that engaging in parasocial relationships increases your capacity for empathy, because basically you're putting yourself in the shoes of someone you've never met.

    So yeah I find it a bit sad that it's being stigmatised in this article. There's a lot more to parasocial relationships than just writing people off as "lol crazy fans".

    I don’t understand how people doubt it’s her now. She’s goofy and she has been sheltered from the internet for a very long time. Her internet humour is just a couple of decades old - she’ll catch on (i hope!)

    This exactly!

    And I mean, on top of being sheltered for over a decade, she's always been a bit of a weirdo (in the best possible way!) If you've watched Chaotic, this sort of thing doesn't seem out of character for her at all.

    I think maybe sometimes people just don't like the way she expresses herself, and therefore refuse to believe it's her? But I think we should just love her the way she is, cringy internet humour included :yeahhh_britney_oops_red_fist_cheer_yeah_smile_happy:

    So cool! The poems from her honeymoon with Kevin are great, I think (She mentioned Felicia, awn)!! Thank you for this. I really into poetry too (I write poetry too)... She could maybe release them in her future book telling all her truth/side of the history (taking back her own narrative, as Lana Del Rey said)!

    Omg I really hope she does!! I wonder if she's still been writing them throughout the conservatorship. I'd love for her to publish them someday.

    And ahh so cool that you write your own poetry too, so do I! :awyeah_britney_yes_yas:

    Love love love this topic, you've done a really good job <3

    By the way, I think it's "a princess dream" in the second poem from Britney Jean, just like you wrote the third one.

    Thank you, that makes me so happy :)

    And yes you're right! Not sure how I didn't realise that, lmao. Gonna edit it now!
