Is it just me, or is anyone else tired of hearing about Brittney Spears EVERY single freakin day on TV?
They go on and on about her, as if she were some sweet, innocent child who has been led astray. Personally, I feel she is nothing short of a spoiled slut.
They had the chance to keep her locked up in the looney bin, but let her out, for more drama.
Give us all a break Brittney and take your slutty ass off to some deserted corner of the world and fade away. :x :mad: :-x

my fiance was watching some crap about her and I overheard them saying the AP already has her obituary written. That is said. At least since her career is over they wont have to add anything...

Most news agencies have all celebrity obits written. Minor updates to it when a celeb dies and it hits the presses. That's standard.

I think Britney's pretty much writing her own anyway.

Is it standard to do it for someone in their Mid Twenties???

No. I read something the other day where the AP has roughly 1000 prepared celebrity obits right now, and they said the vast majority of the ones written are for celebrities over 65 yrs of age.

But they did say that she (Spears) was not the only prepared obit for someone in their 20's. Nonetheless, it is sad on multiple levels.

This looks like the article you were talking about Bayou...

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.c ... 2UILKO.DTL

The AP has about 1,000 prepared obituaries in its files on a wide variety of public figures. Although most are on people over 70, Spears is not the only 20-something whose passing the news agency is ready for.
I don't think I'm ever more "aware" than I am right after I hit my thumb with a hammer.

I got dibs on her in any death pool that may spring up.
