Britney went to court today, but the media circus didn't

What a difference a few months make. Last time Britney Spears ventured into court, it made worldwide news. Today, a few reporters and a clutch of photogs met the pop singer, who quickly vanished into the courthouse. The outcome: expanded visitation rights for Britney and her sons. You can read the story here.

this was never news. so no one should be there.
try reporting on the guy or gal that did a good deed today.
thats real news.

who cares about her. shes a has been

Chris Crocker is right: I do kind of feel bad for her having hit rock bottom. We should leave her alone and let her rebuild her life.

Why bother with old meat? Hollywood has a new steak to eat. And it's name is Miley Cyrus.

It's no different now, it just shows the media are capricious and not newsworthy news gatherers... it wasn't much news before and now we have politics to distract them. She's not a 'has-been'... she's a person with problems like everyone else. Negative posters need to get over themselves. If you don't wanna read about it... duhhhh, well don't read about it.

There's no sense to a dropoff in media attention except there's political news to pander over. 'The media' are just a bunch of sharks looking for blood in the water... and there's more to be found in the elections right now.. else 'the media' would be crashing their cars in front of Spears just to make her get out and walk so they could take pictures and harass the celebrity. Maybe some of them have just gotten tired of harassing her... or grown a vestigial stuf of a conscience, but I doubt it.

Get your own lives and stop dissing hers.

I really wonder why people who don't like her bother to read news about her?!.. I pity these people. However, let's look at the bright side, without these people, Britney would've not realized she'd done wrong and tried to changed for good. Thanks Britney detractors. You've been doing the slightest help to her.

Well, I am just so glad she's been given extended time with her kids.
