Lindsay Lohan car crash and days before Paris Hilton is set to head off to jail, former pop star and reality TV participant Britney Spears has managed to wedge herself back into the headlines with a bizarre message to her fans that reads half like an explanation and half like a suicide note.
Maybe Brit’s feeling the heat that she’ll soon lose custody of her two kids, because she says she feels “truly blessed” for the two baby boys in her life, while contending that neither alcohol nor depression was the reason she wound up at the Promises rehab center (the same Malibu dayspa that Lindsay is supposedly being scraped up and trundled off to). The former pop music star and reality TV participant says she was forced into treatment because she was “like a bad kid running around with ADD.”
And it’s blah blah blah from there—including a mention of the “huge learning lesson” of being “taken to dinners and parties with friends and finding out later you paid for everything”—don’t we all know that feeling!)— until a disturbing note at the end that could signal that the celbutard popgirls who fill up so much space on TV infotainment, reality and news with their drinking drugging, crashing, fighting, paparazzi-teasing— and in the case of Nicole Richie (right), not eating— could be working their way up to a tenth anniversary Diana-style tragedy to liven up a boring summer after all:
Britney says she “can’t wait to meet” God:
“…Recently, I was sent to a very humbling place called rehab. I truly hit rock bottom. Till this day I don't think that it was alcohol or depression. I was like a bad kid running around with ADD. I had a manager from a long time ago come in and try to direct me and my life after I got my divorce. I was so overwhelmed I think that I was in a little shock too. I didn't know who to go to. I realized how much energy and love I had put into my past relationship when it was gone because I genuinely did not know what to do with myself, and it made me so sad. I confess, I was so lost…
“I know everyone thinks that I am playing the victim, but I am not and I hate what is going on right now so much. Maybe this is the reason for this letter...to maybe allow people to look at me differently. It is like when you are a real woman and say what you feel and how you think things are supposed to be, that people just say you are a "bitch"…
“I am 25 and I do still have a lot to learn, and I am going to make mistakes everyday, and I am sure every mistake I make will probably be on CNN or Good Morning America. I am only human people and I love you for still loving me…
“It is so weird how stories are told. There is your side, my side, and the truth. Somebody has to figure it out. I guess we will never really understand or figure out life completely. That's God's job. I can't wait to meet him...or her.
