    I saw the “Britney: for the record” last night and throughout the whole 1.5 she practically had nothing to say
    I can not understand the mentality of this woman is she really naïve or is she dumb or is she simply in a different world?
    How on earth is she talking so simple knowing that the whole world has practically seen her pus** (in her womanizer video which is supposed to be about a firm woman standing up against a womanizer, she is acting like she is a ho wanting attention and practically harassing the guy not to mention her sauna scene which is utterly unnecessary and totally unrelated to the video and what on earth is she hiding? The whole world has already seen her pus**, no need to hide now… and those childish lyrics and music is utterly sad)
    And then her performance last year which she addresses as an “ok” performance and is totally in denial of the mess it had caused, how high she was how drunk and how utterly sedated. And then the time she almost killed herself and her kids, the time when she used to walk on the streets talking nonsense with the pap*&8 behind her following her every psychotic move
    Now I understand that she is lonely and sad and she will probably never recover but her audacity and the level of denial in her empty head makes you wonder if only the whole world thought like Britney, you know living in lala land where anything you do has no consequence…….
