Britney Spears has made a nearly 20-year career out of rising to the top and then crashing and burning on a torpedo of insanity all the way to the depths of Crazy Land — and then doing it all over again. This is why we love her. Britney embraces the crazy.
She doesn’t try to cover it up like Lindsay Lohan and countless other celebrities. Her parents aren’t going around and pretending like she isn’t slightly insane. Britney reminds me of a lesson I learned in college on crisis management while reading the Tylenol tampering crisis from 1982 case study: Be honest with America and get that shit off the shelves. Once everything is copacetic and SUV windows and bags of Cheetos aren’t being crushed, introduce it back to the public in a bigger and better way than ever.
Which is just what media genius Simon Cowell intends to do. Britney has officially signed a $15 million contract to judge The X Factor alongside Cowell and L.A. Reid, with the fourth judge yet to be determined.
Simon has been smitten with Britney for some time now. He was quoted telling TMZ he thinks she would be a “fascinating person to sit next to.” As long as she doesn’t poke your eye out with that umbrella she’s wielding, Simon! When Britney Spears is back in the public eye on live television, we win. She wins. Everyone wins.
