Britney Spears posted a message on her web site today
, asking all of us to cut her some slack.
"It's been so long since I've been out on the town with friends. It's also been 2 years since I've celebrated my birthday," she writes addressing oodles of ink spilled recently about her busy nightlife. "Every move I make at this point has been magnified more than I expected, and I probably did take my new found freedom a little too far."
You know, I'd be willing to cut Ms. Spears some slack if she wasn't the one who sought out the celebrity spotlight so. She's the first to complain when the image she projects in unflattering, but she's also sought out the spotlight throughout her career.
And it's kind of hard to feel too sorry for her. Britney can have an entourage around her to help with things when the single mom things get tough, which is a perk I'd say 99.9% of the rest of the single parents of the world don't have. The fact that you can't go out clubbing with your BFF as much as you'd like doesn't really seem that big a deal when I know there are single parents out there who struggle with silly things like providing enough food for the kids or finding a job with benefits that are affordable so the kids can have funny things like vaccinations and proper medical care. Yeah, B, you've got it real tough there...
