I found this comment on her last BBMA performance. It's really long but interesting and true (apart from the meth part, I never heard that?)
"Lane3512 please. She has one of the saddest stories in pop culture. Do you know anything about her 2007 breakdown? Her life was a living hell at that time. Yes she has money and was the most famous person on earth for an entire decade but that doesn't take away from what she went through. 2004-2007, she had a horrible knee injury that ruined her dance career, her parents were getting a divorce, her aunt died of cancer, her and Justin broke up, no other celeb has ever had the same amount of paparazzi as Britney did and they did not ever leave her alone. She was the most photographed woman in the world. She always got asked about paparazzi and every damn time, she cried. She had NO privacy. Not even in her own house. She was going crazy, she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, K-Fed married her, had children with her, and cheated on her and admitted to using her for fame and money, she was battling with SEVERE depression and anxiety. Being the most famous person in the world, there was absolutely nothing but rumours and a bunch of bullshit in the tabloids and magazines and everything. After being treated so badly by K-Fed, he stole her babies away from her. Her life was falling apart and the world just kept tearing her down just so we could watch the show and make money and sell her privacy and all of her to the world. No one has ever reached that level of fame when it comes to publicity. All she ever did was be kind and the world destroyed her. To cope with it, she got addicted to meth, and overdosed but thankfully made it out alive. Guess what happened when she overdosed? She was being carried into an ambulance on the edge of death and there was nothing but people asking for autographs and flashing lights for photos to sell to magazines. She also tried to kill herself multiple times. She just stepped into motherhood and guess what? K-Fed filed to have her lose custody of her children and the police and social services showed up at her house and tried to take her babies. She was screaming and crying and locked herself in the bathroom because her newborn babies were the ONLY thing that kept her going at that time. She didn't want to lose them. Then she got them back and the world blew up calling her a bad mother just because she almost dropped her child when she was walking and tripped. A quarter of the world saw that Britney was falling apart but NOBODY helped her. The other 3 quarters of the world saw it as a way to make money and saw it as something hilarious to bully her for. It's terrifying and utterly horrible what she went through and I assure you, you probably wouldn't have made it out alive if you went through what she did. We almost lost Britney forever. Those days messed her up so bad she's not even the same person anymore. Thank god she's still alive. But you know what? That wasn't even half of the things that happened during those years. You should listen to the song "Britney" by Bebo Norman because it basically explains how badly the world hurt her."
we kinda do give her a hard time if you reflect on what she's been through. We say there's a lot of mystery behind her anxiety and her team and all but the answer is pretty much right there.
