Britney Spears Drug Addiction
Britney Spears became one of the most influential pop stars in
recent memory with her hit singles and sometimes provocative music
videos. Her rise from Disney starlet to international sensation
placed her front and center in front of the entire world and that
world is often an unforgiving place for many young people.
The behavior of Britney Spears began to be seen as obscure and
eventually downright dangerous for many of those people who were
close to her. It seems that after her short-lived relationship
with fellow teen heartthrob, Justin Timberlake, her life began
to unravel as she surrounded herself with people who either had
a vested interest in her fame and fortune, or only wanted to tag
along with the party wagon as long as they could.
The Warning Signs ...
The earliest indications that Britney Spears was slipping down
a long trail that so many have fallen before her was uncharacteristic
behavior. Perhaps the most famous of these instances was what
some in the sensationalist media have dubbed the 'underwear-gate'
when Britney was caught climbing into a car one night out on the
town and showed the world that she wasn't wearing anything underneath
While some would find this behavior less than scandalous, especially
given the current state of affairs around the world, for the girl
who was still, at that time, closely tied with Disney, it was
an eye-opening experience (forgive the pun). When she married
Kevin Federline, and had children with him, and then subsequently
divorced him, revelations began to surface about her actual drug
addictions and other behavioral issues.
Back to Rehab (Oops I Did It Again
Britney Spears has been in and out of rehab time and time again.
Promises Rehabilitation Clinic in Malibu is one of the common
destinations for celebrity addicts and Britney Spears is no different.
However, her tale takes a bizarre twist when it comes to Promises.
It was reported from anonymous sources that while Britney was
at the rehab facility, she attempted to commit suicide and was
going on and on about how she was the anti-Christ. This bizarre
behavior highlights the circumstances that some celebrities find
themselves in when dealing with drug addiction.
Some therapists have extrapolated that Britney suffers from some
mental disease (such as bipolar disorder), but to get into a diagnosis
would be impossible without direct observation. When an individual
is diagnosed with some mental disorder, then the drug and alcohol
addiction seems to tie in more readily, and make a bit more sense.
Private I's ...
When average individuals suffer from mental disorders, they can
go on about their lives in some measure of peace, and deal with
the ups and downs of the behavior. For Britney Spears and celebrities
like her, that privacy is forfeited, for the most part, as a condition
of their incredible fame and fortune.
Britney Spears is attempting to make a comeback and, as is the
case with so many comebacks, is fraught with peril. It is being
reported lately that she may be addicted to more than just cocaine
and ecstasy now, as she has been spotted almost regularly with
lollipops in her mouth. Lollipops can contain marijuana or even
morphine for drug addicts.
The Britney Spears story isn't over yet. The saga continues.
