Unless you have been living in a cave, you have heard that Britney Spears has finally acknowledged that she needs professional assistance addressing her “issues.” According to her confidant Sam Lufti, Brit Brit has been seeing a therapist everyday and by the looks of paparazzi images has been making more than few trips to the drug store. After a second hospitalization in less than a month, Brit is on 72-hour emergency hold, known as a 5150. It has been reported that her current therapist called authorities after she refused to take prescribed medication and not sleeping for several days, thus causing her to potentially be a danger to herself and others. We here at the Getty Images Blog are elated that Britney is finally getting the help she seems to so desperately need. Even if Britney leaves the industry, we wish her health, happiness, and serenity in 2008.

    That’s all fine and dandy but….. to little to late for her career. Perhaps this is the new technique for how a has-been stays in the spotlight. Hearing about Britney is starting to remind me of the OJ Trial and Iraq War. After hearing the same story OVER and OVER, we just want it to go away.

    There is “To much of a bad thing”.
