Excerpted from the pop princess’s forthcoming ‘For The Record’ documentary (1 December, Sky One) Britney sounds desperate – and desperately sad. She says, of her current life: “When you go to jail you know there’s the time when you’re gonna get out. But in this situation, it’s never ending. It’s just like Groundhog Day.”
Despite the spate of positive publicity and all the ‘oh look, isn’t it sweet that Britney’s daddy is running her life. Look how she’s back on track’ the star sounds far from content. “If I wasn’t under the restraints I’m under I’d feel so liberated. If you do something wrong in your work, you can move on, but I’m having to pay for a long time.”
You listening people? This is a woman imprisoned against her will. Her only crime is to be a woman who failed to live up to a society’s impossible demands. If, as a society, we don’t restore her rights and step off and let her live her life as a human being (not as the fucked-up amalgam of virgin/whore/Madonna/child we wish her to be) there will be blood on our hands. The South Park Britney’s New Look episode was intended as satire, but getting it’s uncomfortably close to the bone.
