    Omg like so strange, Britney is the only celebrity to do this, like omg keep her in a conservatorship.

    :grimace_judging_judge_squint_ew_gross_red_white_annoyed: You're uncomfortable with a woman being comfortable with her body? Trash - if this was a man you'd all be drooling.

    THIS WOULD NOT PAINT HER IN A BAD LIGHT, you clearly don't know what you're talking about.

    Where was all of this when she was naked in her music videos and wore racy outfits? Leave her the hell alone.

    That’s assuming a lot. Who exactly would be drooling if it was a man? I’m a woman, I like men, … but I don’t like shirtless, crotch-grabbing / nutsack cradling poses. So, no, “you’d all be drooling” is simply too far of a sweeping brush and dismissive of personal taste/opinion. 

    There’s tasteful / artistic nudity… and then there’s this picture that would benefit a nose doctor who needs a good angle to discuss nasal orifices. I don’t find it **** at all to play spot the booger while I smash my mammary glands. I’ve even had a mammogram that looked less painful than this. I cringed less during that than I did staring at this picture.

    There nothing s**ist or contradictory about it. It’s called having a difference in aesthetic taste.

    Exactly.

    Us, fans and the worse, the non-fans, the haters and her former friends were programmed by Team Con to think Sam Lufti is the enemy and we shouldn't trust him.

    It's hard for me to even blame Lance Bass for his refusal to acknowledge the movement.

    What is unforgiveable on his part was he voiced the words Jamie Lynn told him to the world. He should have never said anything.

    OMG shut up about Sam Lufti!!!!! He was beyond sketch and did a number of dangerous actions like bringing strangers/paps in to her damn home. The guy was bad news in any book but that’s all a lifetime ago now.

    Do they even know what is paranoid schizophrenia? :jl_jamie_lynn_awkward_cringe_eek:

    I’m having trouble understanding how with ANY of the multiple supposed diagnosis now they made Britney perform for 13 years. This would definitely be conservatorship abuse to force a person with paranoid schizophrenia to perform for the public. And how would that make her susceptible to COVID? It’s more likely she has an STI and they are using it as an excuse. No hate if she does btw: it’s just a medical condition and I don’t see the big whoop.

    I do think the road will be long and bumpy, but I think she'll be free eventually. Judge Penny should just throw the whole thing out (at least in my fan fiction), but I'll just aim for the more realistic approach at this point 

    I’m not sure if it will be so long. It’s already imploding.  What worries me is afterwards .. the backlash from all the people she rebelled against.  If anything  happens to her, Heaven help them.

    Didn’t Perez Hilton use the same excuse about professionalism?

    There’s a massive difference between actual “critique” and vitriolic criticism verging on bullying.

    While I agree Britney’s music and artistic output should be poked, prodded and analyzed! And let's be honest many of us haven't been a lover of a lot of what the conservatorship has churned out. But…

    I don’t agree that Britney’s personality, appearance, life choices and sense of self should be attacked to the point of annihilation. She often didn’t have a choice or say in the matter…as it turns out she didn’t at all. And as a mother of two children do you think she was worrying 24/7 about vocals, choreography or whatever over her kids academic performance or health.

    Early in the conservatorship when the passion died, and the lights dimmed many weren't seeing Britney as she actually was, a ghost of bygone days with lower (albeit) realistic expectations. Many accused her of being terribly lazy and ungrateful, and they lambasted her super bad choices. Little did we know!

    Brit will often say it herself, there is a difference between Britney the person, and Britney the product / performer.  Many fans fail/failed to see the difference.  Or confused the two. 

    And yes the OP’s viewpoints are VERY necessary! Like Britney’s recent testimony, people need to get out what is inside them to heal, and make sense of their feelings. Even if you don’t agree with what they are saying, we can all learn something from this!

    I find that Little Monsters are a good example of fans that are able to be fiercely critical of their idol’s “output” and at the same time very sympathetic, empathetic and loving towards Gaga as a person.

    When you encounter a worker at any place of business - barista, hostess, bank teller, etc - and they look bored, irritated, sluggish, and annoyed to be there, when they treat you poorly, you won’t sit there and be like, “Gee, I wonder what’s happening in their life that they’re treating me like **** instead of doing the job they signed up for?” You would be like, “Gosh, she’s rude! Why the hell come to work if you don’t want to be there and do a good job?”  Basic courtesy and customer service is the expectation . Clearly, Britney at times was over it - and now we know she was blackmailed, drugged, and forced to perform. This is an unusual situation.  A multimillionaire in a conservatorship being forced to continue to work and rebelling at times at her fans out of sheer frustration… it’s understandable NOW, but it wasn’t then. 

    I’m not discussing the body shaming - it’s still going on here and the mods should be doing a better job shutting it down. But to blanket criticize individuals for pointing out something shady with Britney and her behavior and lumping them in with body shamers is what I take issue with.  The insistence of creating pockets or categories of fandom is counterproductive: “Britards,” “stans,” “haters,” … why can’t we just all be adults and fans who have differences of opinions? Can we not engage maturely without labels and not invite drama with such useless threads designed to create in-fighting?

    It wasn't productive or constructive. They lambasted Britney for not putting in the actual effort. The fans cared nothing for the conservatorship and blamed Britney for everything. If you were Britney, would you have been happy with that? "Oh their ****ting on me and everything I do lead to the conservatorship being questioned."  No. It didn't work like that. I left exhale a Britney fan who was still questioning why she was in a conservatorship and talking about it to all who would listen. You didn't need to be an ******* to Britney and trash her to dislike the conservatorship. This is a false equivocation and just justifying terrible behaviour. Britney was clearly unhappy and unmotivated and those who were unhappy with what she was producing placed the blame on her.

    I don't celebrate every single thing she has ever done, but I don't participate in unnecessary cruelty either. Don't build a straw man argument based on what I said. Logical fallacies aren't cute.

    Whose “they”?  By your account: you were here, you’re here again, so you were/are a part of this community. I don’t think an “us” vs “them” mentality is cute either.  A peppering of academic jargon disguising vitriol is so last season.

    Anyways, like I said: hindsight is 20/20. I doubt anyone would have dragged Britney so harshly if they knew what we all do now.  But as far as the looks part of it all - there isn’t a man alive - black, white, orange, gay, straight, Spongebob etc - that hasn’t dragged a woman for her looks at one point in their life. Sadly, it’s part of the intrinsically misogynistic culture. I’d love it if my gender wasn’t reduced to ****, butts, makeup, hair, and fancy strips of clothing, but hey, it’s so in right now to pretend women are just an aesthetically pleasing combination of these elements. The day a man doesn’t give a woman unsolicited advice on her looks is a day I sadly doubt I’ll ever live to see.

  7. I do feel bad for pointing out her lack of enthusiasm during Circus and her clear irritation with it. It’s obvious now why, but I think we were all under the impression she was trying to come back. So, it was confusing. Definitely reaches me to be sensitive to the possible struggles of others that they keep hidden.
