Shock, horror, Britney Spears may have made a hit record. Her “Blackout” album has received International critical acclaim. Perhaps all the tears, tantrums and drug problems have been part of a smart publicity ploy to generate sympathy for Britney, prior to her album release. Already, the Catholic Church is up in arms about the religious themed photos in the booklet for her new album. One of the pictures features Spears wearing a cross and sitting on a priest’s lap in what looks like a confessional booth, while showing some fishnet stockinged leg which led to one religious leader calling the pictures a “bottom of the barrel” publicity ploy. But by far the most extraordinary story this week is Heather Mills McCartney’s interview on GMTV.
Heather announced her fight back against the tabloids who have supposedly defamed her character and made her life a misery. Her tears indicated a determination to give as good as she gets but I don’t think she has any clue about the mountain she has to climb to right the supposed wrongs.
Her estranged husband is a national treasure and rock royalty. It’s going to take someone pretty amazing to shake those foundations.
