A jury was finally picked, and opening arguments began yesterday in the Sam Lufti defamation suit against Britney Spears' mother
. The opening argument by Sam Lufti's lawyer was more like reading The Enquirer than anything else you would normally hear in a courtroom. We already knew that Britney had a really bad 2007, and early 2008, but this all just confirmed it. We had already heard about Britney's crystal meth habit which was supposed to be extraordinary. She also used amphetamines. Lots of them. So many in fact that is what caused her to get placed in a 5150 hold because she took too many one day. She shaved her head to hide possible drug use. Even though she had not rehearsed, she thought she could go out and just kill it at the 2007 MTV Awards. Yeah, that did not work out so well. This was just day one of the trial. This is going to be really good stuff. Just wish Britney was allowed to testify.
