But only because her bizarre performance last night at the VMAs seems to confirm my earlier suspicion that Spears is suffering from serious mental illness. (My voyeur's diagnosis is incipient schizophrenia or schizo-affective disorder.)
This was a girl who, though utterly mediocre as a vocalist and pop artist, at one time had a significant degree of shit together in terms of her stage performance and visual image. Last night's uncomfortable spectacle made it clear that that girl, though she's left a few lights on, has definitely left the building.
So the piling on won't seem very amusing when the nature of her problem becomes widely understood. (Not that it's all that amusing now.) And for her family and friends, having this person they love effectively dissolve in maximum view of the public is ineffably sad.
