Britney Spears Troubled Comeback

    She’s doing interviews with magazines over email (enabling her to control which questions get asked and answered), pre-taping performances on the big morning shows (helping to insure that there won’t be a repeat of her 2008’s MTV Music Awards fiasco), and going on Glee, where her appearance can be scripted to the letter.

    Even in the case of the hit Fox TV show, the results from her episode last fall haven’t exactly inspired confidence from people around her, insiders say.

    A source on the Glee set tells The Daily Beast that Spears appeared “out of it” during the filming of her scenes and totally reliant on her team of career minders in order to function professionally. “They led her to her mark and she’d sit there like a deer in the headlights until she had to say her lines,” the source says. “When she was finished, they’d take her by the hand and lead her away again.” (A spokesman for Spears did not respond to requests for comment for this article.)

    The whole thing feels rather like Weekend at Bernie’s, but instead of a murdered gangster, there’s a catatonic entertainer.

    But what else is Spears’ team to do? Four years ago, their golden goose had a meltdown of Charlie Sheen-like proportions, shaving her head and then attacking a car with an umbrella, as a slew of paparazzi went snap, snap, snap. From there, she spent the next few months checking in and out of rehab centers, failing to show up at custody hearings for her children, and being hospitalized, presumably for having a psychological break. Her money was placed in a conservatorship that her father, a notorious stage parent, controls to this day.

    Saw her on GMA this morning and she looked terrible. We all know she can't sing for shit but her dancing was horrendous.

    Anyone forking over more than $1 to see her lip-synch is nuts.

    Courtney Love tweeted Brit's dad abused her pretty badly as a kid and now he's running her conservatorship while space cadet Britney runs around like a zombie from all of the mood stabilizing meds they've got her on. She's totally checked out and could barely dance Sunday at Rain Nightclub in Vegas...

    Wasn't it a better world when nobody brought up Britney Spears at all?

    So who buys the farm first: Britney, Lindsay or Charlie?

    I think Charlie will end up, uh winning this one (i.e not dirt napping).

    And even Lindsay probably looks at Britney and goes "that poor, poor girl"

    The rest of us, with lives to lead, don't give a shit.

    Yeah, except Lindsay is essentially broke and Britney usually pulls in about $30-$40 mil a year. Britney also isn't facing jail time.

    People always make the comparison, but Lindsay is so much worse off than Britney, it's not even funny.

    Brit and Lindsay will buy the farm in their late 30s or early 40s - when no one is paying attention.

    Exactly. Britney made 120 million last year while Lindsay is broke and thinking of going overseas and blowing rich Japanese Businessman for cash (rumoured on Crazy Days and Nights.com) Why not just self leak a lesbian sex tape like everyone else? That's like 10 million right there with no penetration required

    Good for Lindsay. Someone needs to do something about our trade imbalance with Japan.

    If this GMA stint didn't involve her attacking a car with a hanger and shaving her head, then she's doing better.

    I wonder if she had to surrender her passport before going on trial for felony theft? Wednesday's Blind Items

    This former B list actress and now just a big troublemaker and frequent guest of the California penal system has been studying Japanese. Why? She is hoping she can get some gigs in Japan not only acting but also f*ing businessmen who want to say they have been with her and are willing to pay for the privilege. Not so sure it is a privilege anymore. http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2011/02/wednesdays-blind-items.html
