I would not really have suspected that Britney Spears was a Groundhog Day fan, but apparently she is enough of one to even use it as a reference point in an interview she gave in a show for UK television. Of course the interview is part of a special, and it is being shown the day before her new album is released and it was executive produced by her manager Larry Rudolph so even though it appears to be candid, one really has to wonder how much of it is designed to make us feel sorry for her on purpose so we will all rush out and buy her new album.
I feel pretty sorry for her when I read it, and then I realized she doesn't really understand why she is in the position she is in.
She says, 'I have really good days, and then I have bad days. Even when you go to jail, y'know, there’s the time when you’re gonna get out. 'But in this situation, it’s never ending. It’s just like Groundhog Day every day.' 'I think it’s too in control. If I wasn’t under the restraints I’m under, I’d feel so liberated. When I tell them the way I feel, it’s like they hear but they’re really not listening. 'If you do something wrong in your work, you can move on, but I’m having to pay for a long time.'I never wanted to become one of those prisoner people. I always wanted to feel free.''I think I've learnt my lesson now and enough is enough.'
Umm, yeah, she's just like one of those prisoner people. Do you think the people in prison feel she is living their life? Yeah, me either. She may have learned her lesson, but I also think that if her dad had not stepped in, Britney would be dead right now. I'm not sure she understands that. To me, when I read these quotes she seems like a person who doesn't quite comprehend that it wasn't just someone who was going out and getting drunk a few times. I wonder if she has even seen the photos of how she looked or seen the footage of the way she was acting. If she has had the guts to sit there and look at the meltdown we were forced to endure each day. I don't get a sense from this that she is ready to be on her own. I'm sure she would feel liberated and I'm sure she would be right back in the same place she was a year ago. Her transformation is remarkable, but it has only occurred because of being one of those prisoner people.
