But there was another moment, once again caught up in the pressure of the photographers, which is probably even more worrying.
The time was May 2006, and Spears was photographed outside a Manhattan hotel by photographers as he struggled with an 8-month-old son, Sean Preston, in a one-handed bowl juggle.
She stumbled in the process, and a photo that later fell out of the window shows her son in tears as she holds him, as if trying to protect the world from his apparent resentment.
It’s a moment that ignores so many headlines that, on the contrary, Spears has abandoned her baby boy to avoid aggressive photographers.
This image of a worried young mother was first shown in February and goes deeper into the documentary Framing Britney Spears, which sheds light on some of the struggles that have resulted from such powerful and often dangerous and sexist consequences. media scrutiny.
Over the years, Spears has faced other struggles and made new professional and personal achievements – all of which are blindly in the spotlight. In the process, she paved the way for the young women in the entertainment that came after her and showed the public that we could work better.
“Warning fairy tale”
It compared Spears, who was in trouble at the time, and the U.S. economy, who was worried at the time.
“No matter how annoying, the epic about the fall of Britney Spears serves as a warning story for young American shoppers,” Warners wrote. She asked us out, played fast and loose, and started out as a polite, spotless girl. to hit the child again. Then, he did it again! And so did we. Young Americans continued to look for it, a sign of events that could see savings rates fall to their lowest levels in a decade or so. “
This comparison may seem elusive to some until you understand what brand Spears is and what it will be.
She rose from a child star in the new Mickey Mouse Club to a teenage star, then she had to manage the transition to adulthood, involving a series of marriages, divorces and motherhood, attracting millions of people. .
“Pushing Pop Music”
In 1999, when Spears wore a uniform to a schoolgirl for a hit clip of “Baby One More Time,” she was quickly dubbed the “Queen of Pop.”
It was 98 years, the year of the Backstreet Boys and N’Sync scoring kids groups. While girl groups like Destiny’s Child and TLC were also carrying tables, the Spears brought something different without fear of being a slightly angry character with their neighbor’s daughter.
It’s common for young women today to own their own sexuality and their agencies, but at the time it was a scandal – the cover of the 1999 Rolling Stone magazine, which was popular with Spears in 1999, was even more so.
“In the long demographic echo of the post-war children’s explosion, American teens have reached a very important mass that is forcing them to sit and listen to the cultural sphere. Teen spending is changing pop culture and making our television screens with teen dramas. “Multiplexes with teen films,” the article reads. “There was also new music in the pop hits, where the dedicated evaporation of children’s groups overcame the rocks that had been thrown from the mid-to-mid-nineties.”
And he continued to show up in magazines, charts and provocative video clips.
The spears were flowing with sexual power in songs like “Oops! … I did it again,” “Toxic,” and “Gimme More,” and then later like Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, and Camila Cabello. stars. to run
“Leave Britney alone”
With this power, many criticisms arose.
In the dark days, during constant headlines about Spears spiraling, there was an incident that helped shape pop culture.
In 2007, a young man named Chris Crocker uploaded a video on YouTube in which he defended Spears emotionally after he was criticized for showing at the MTV Video Music Awards, some found him sluggish.
She yelled, “He’s a man,” and with tears in her eyes, “Leave Britney alone!”
Witserspun said that although he also met paparazzi, he and other actor Jennifer Garner were called “good” by the media, while Spears, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan and others were portrayed negatively.
From his darkness, Spears actually shone a bright light.
There is more awareness and debate today about the detrimental effects of fame on artists ’mental health. His struggles allowed others to be more open about themselves.
Still with Spears – the hunger for what is happening to his supporters and the audience has not stopped.
Spears strongly denied his lack of control over his life in a court hearing for his conservatory on Wednesday, calling it an abuse and asking for an end.
He deserves mercy. He has achieved this, and it is as much a part of his legacy as his music.
If we take this lesson to heart, we are better for it.
