The New York Times published a very interesting article on Britney Spears and her fortune. The article titled, “In The Drama of Britney Spears, A Showbiz Fortune Is At Risk”, examines reports that Britney’s financial situation is headed the same direction as every other part of her life. My feeling is that she can turn it around…she is 26 and extremely talented. Love her or hate her, there is interest in what she does. Sure, there is more interest in her personal life than her music, but with help from the right people she can start making good business decisions and regain her share of the pop music market. I think her main problem from day one is that she lacked a good support system and she most certainly lacked the ability to make good decisions for herself. Her husbands, boy-toys, assistants, bodyguards, nearly everyone who has had some contact with her has tried to profit from her in one way or another. Even her family saw her as a meal ticket from the time she was eight years old. I think that with the right people around her, and with a clear, drug-free head she will be able to come back stronger than ever and profit from it. The conservatorship is probably the best thing that has happened to Britney Spears in the past three+ years. Of course, someone else taking control simply stopped it from spinning out of control. Now with some work I’m sure that Britney and Co. can turn it all around–maybe not this year, but I wouldn’t write her off just yet. After all, we all like a good come back story don’t we?
That is just my opinion, but then again I am a Britney fan and I WANT her to come back. I want to HELP her (by being her stylist (live in obviously…this girl needs it)). Anyways, check out the article, it is an interesting read:
