Britney's Strange Men And Stalkers
In honour of International Women's Day over the weekend, we decided it was time to discuss the men in the life of our favourite woman, Britney Spears (yeah we're all about irony here at MTV).
For while K-Fed was originally viewed as a gold-digger, you can always get a giant-sized earthmover if you're living in Hollywood. Post K-Fed, things have dived deeper than a porn star at a casting call.
First, there were the post K-Fed hangers-on. Ex-Manager Osama Lufti allegedly drugged Brit up to the eyeballs until her dad stepped in and forcibly removed him from his daughter's life. Next, Brit's post-K-Fed boyfriend Adnan Ghalib was not only a paparazzi who notoriously told his friends that Britney was his golden opportunity to score money, fame and get out of gaol free (notably, he did try the "don't you know who I am?" on police who pulled him over recently), he also sold pictures of the couple to the press, and was allegedly caught cheating on Britney to boot.
Then, there's Uncle Willy. Uncle Willy recently betrayed the trust of the Spears clan by exposing their deep dark family secrets; notably, that Brit's sister Jamie-Lynn was an accident. Jamie-Lynn was conceived shortly after her daddy was neutered, and despite Jamie's suspicions, she turned out to be not the product of immaculate conception or an affair, but rather the result of 0.1 percent vasectomy failure rate.
Beyond boyfriends, managers and lip-flabby uncles, Britney's also recently added a few stalkers to her long list of dodgy guys. The wackos have made sure that she's provisionally stocked with letters, gifts, threats, weird gibberish, and instructions on "how to bomb". We would have thought she was already well on top of this last one, with the dismal effort of her latest album Blackout.
International Women's Day (IWD) "Is the global day connecting all women around the world and inspiring them to achieve their full potential". As women celebrate their achievements all over the world, it's nice for us men to believe that we contribute to at least some of their success.
But if the men in Britney's life have at the very least influenced Britney to achieve the levels of insanity and messiness that we love (or love to hate) today, is that necessarily a bad thing?
