Moby: Brit Is Broken
She’s had her rough times, but by all accounts, it looks like Britney Spears is back to having it all – she’s enjoying the success of a sold out tour, a chart smashing album, a steady long-term boyfriend and a family to die for.
But Moby begs to differ. The DJ, who worked with Brit on her 2003 album ‘In The Zone’ has sensationally opened up about the songstress and described her as a “broken-down shell of a human being," according to Digitalspy.co.uk.
Britney shouldn’t be offended though, because as it turns out, the hit-maker, who co-wrote 'Early Mornin' on Spear's 2003 album ‘In the Zone’ is paying her a major compliment!
When Moby was asked by The Quietus about muso’s that have a sense of entitlement, he answered: "The worst case scenario is you really like someone's work, then you meet them and they're a self-involved, entitled douchebag,"
The interviewer then asked if he meant Britney, and the ‘South Side’ hit-maker came rushing to her defense, replying:
"No, Britney's actually kind of like a broken-down shell of a human being, that's what makes her so endearing and compelling. She was lovely, but really broken. Like, Blanche Dubois-style broken".
"Actually, the most entitled people I've met are indie rockers and indie actors, because they really believe their press."
It’s not the first time the electronica rocker has waxed lyrical about the pop princess. In 2008, the Digitalspy.com reported Moby giving his own psychoanalysis of the popstrel, saying:
"I think what's happening is the combination of hardcore substance abuse coupled with... she doesn't know who she is…Cutting your hair off is symbolic. Losing your children and becoming a drug addict is not."
Around the same time he told The Sun:
"Britney is like this Tennessee Williams tragic figure. The fatter she gets, the weirder she gets, the more I love her.
"I found her moderately appealing in the late '90s, but now I would marry her in a heartbeat!"
