Britney is Chaotic

When I heard Britney Spears was going to be airing a reality show called Chaotic, I feared for the sanity of the world. After pronouncing her life a car-wreck (which I still stand by), the idea that we might witness a resurgence of her popularity thanks to the show made me shiver.

Fortunately, all is right with the world. I caught a few minutes of the show, and found it even lamer than I expected. The show really is just Britney goofing around with a camera and annoying her friends. I found it interesting from a psychological aspect - is Britney so desperate for attention that she always has to have a camera on herself, even if she works the camera herself? I also got a whiff of narcissism - that Britney believes anything she does is inherently interesting, even if it's aiming her camera up her nose. The only "truth" the show exposes is that Britney is even less substantial than I thought.

Fortunately, everyone else agrees. The ratings are sliding fast, and reviews are universally bad. My favorites..."Chaotic makes Nick and Jessica look like Masterpiece Theatre." + "It was America's crummiest home video."

Please, Britney, just go away.

Heee hee. After years of "leave me alone", she's doing a 180 and desperately throwing herself into the public eye to save her sagging career.
Call 911, there's a train wreck coming.
