The Britney Microscope


When you're on your 7134th blog entry, it's likely you've covered a lot of ground.  Although I don't have any facts to back this up, I'd guess the most popular subject of blogs is Britney Spears.  She's prime gossip fodder with mass appeal and everybody loves staring at a train wreck.  I've been going out of my way to not blog about Britney, because I fail to see the blogging delight in gawking at a young mother screaming for help at the top of her lungs.

I'm not suggesting I've never written about Britney Spears, I've just intentionally avoided writing about what's happened these past few years.  Searching this site I see I joked about the fact she married a guy named Jason Alexander and I reviewed her recent performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, calling it "sad".  That's the word I'd use to describe this society's complete fascination with following every detail of Britney's public fall from grace.

The AP tells me Britney Spears was taken from her home by ambulance early this morning and escorted to the hospital by more than a dozen police officers in cars, on motorcycles and in helicopters.  When you want your next Britney update, or Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie updates for that matter, you'll have to go elsewhere.
