Britney Spears is NOT OK!

Guest blogger Mom De Plume wonders, "Does OK! magazine really think we'd take any advice from a popwreck?"

An OK! magazine cover story seems to have amnesia about Britney Spears' tarnished rep. Their latest issue is graced with a slimmed-down picture of Britney along with the headline, "How I Got My Body Back!" Although I applaud anyone who can manage to lose the baby weight, I make it a rule not to take dieting advice, or any advice for that matter, from twice-divorced train-wreck pop stars who've been denied custody of their own children. Sorry. The truth hurts.

OK! must think it's still 1998 and Britney's in Justin Timberlake puppy love. How else could they describe her, in 2008, like this: "Britney Spears was the epitome of the California girl as she walked out of the surf in a white bikini." That's a bit of stretch, dontcha think? The last time she made news at the beach was when she ran into the surf in just her bra and undies. Well, at least this time she got the bathing suit part down.
In an exclusive photo shoot for the magazine, Britney claims to be focused on being a healthy role model for her two boys and says this involves an intense workout regime. I doubt very much her two children care if Mama's got a six-pack--they do care, however, if she's drinking a six-pack. Britney has many other issues to work on rather than her weight. Here's a flashback--wasn't she just recently committed?  Any chance an article's in the works entitled  "How Britney Got Her Sanity Back"? Just sayin'.

But hey, thanks, OK!, for teaching us a valuable lesson: "It's not how you feel on the inside, but how you look on the outside." Gossip site agrees, issuing this gleeful proclamation based on Brit's new fab bod: "Brit Brit's looking poised for an ultimate comeback!!!!! YAY!!!!!"

Sounds like everyone's priorities are screwed up big time. Before "working out with her personal trainer" or getting her pop career back on track, this should be first on Brit's to-do list:

1. Get kids back.

Or do some women think that slimming down means her life is back together?

bra and undies or a bikini… still looks the same to me.

Here’s what everyone needs to keep in mind: she may not want her children back full-time. She chose to relinquish custody, she missed court appointment after court appintment, she seems perfectly happy with the arrangement as it is.

Everyone can say as much as they want about Britney. I am a supporter. Yes she might have lost her kids to Kevin but Kevin isnt such a great father himself. His always out partying too. You think he’s at home with those kids all day, NO! of course not, He has a nanny. And he’s receiving over $40,000 in child support. All the money he’s getting off of Britney he’s blowing it on paying the nanny and going clubbing. What, you havent seen him on TMZ! Anyways, no one would have noticed this if it wasn’t for the paparazzi blowing it out of proportion. Thanks to them they made her go crazy. I mean look at when she was being taken away in an ambulence people were taking pics like crazy. Thats to be no ones concern. How would you like it if everyone was all in your business like that and wouldn’t leave you alone? Honestly, no one is following any of you watching every step you take, every error you make! That must be terrifying. They’re stalking her and making her life miserable by making her look like she is something she really isn’t. She’s single and she can party just like Kevin. There are people that are worse than her and the media is not after them. They’re after the Rich & Famous to ruin their lives since they can’t be living the life they live! You people are ENVIOUS! Thats all it is! Everyone that talks so negative about her isnt trying to help her you people are trying to Break her! Mind your F-ing business!

Britney is a young girl who does not know what it means to be a woman yet. But, give her time…eventually she will learn and grow and may even surprise people. Either way, I don’t think it is anybody’s business what goes on in her private life. The media has destroyed her and I hope now they will see what they have done and learn a thing or to. Britney fell into their trap and unforgiving people that read trashy magazines kept her there.

I have a saying taped to the inside of my cabinet, it reads; If you don’t make mistakes, you don’t know much.

So there.

U guys give her a break won’t u.The one who begins all this is the media themselves.They critic everything that she does.A single pic can cause a lot of negetive impact to her.She was control since she was so young and i gues when she found freedom,she wants to do everything that wild.i’ll admite that she missuse her freedom,but if i was always surounded by hundreds of people just waiting for me to make a major mistake.I’ll go nuts too.Oh yeah,FYI I’m not a fan,I just want to tell u what i felt about all the negetive critic u gave.Cause that will give a negative impact to Britney

The next time any of you want to think she’s “all that”, ask yourself one question. Would I want this “person” to be the Mother of your children? Of course you wouldn’t want that, and who would?

I don’t believe the OP wrote from jealousy, I believe she wrote as a natural, feeling woman would.

Britney is a loser as a Mother, and she always will be. If she was anyone other than who she is, you would all agree. But one run-through in photoshop, and photoshop makes her look great equals “she is great”. Please think before you all write. You see what you want to see, and you forget Britney had choices like we all had.

NO Mother would lose her children for any reason such as Britney has. Look at many other fine Celeb Moms. You don’t see them losing their children.

Britney needs to clean up the mess that’s inside.

I think whoever wrote this article needs to lighten up! I dont think the headline on the cover is supposed to indicate “how she got her life back on track”. Its intention is merely what it says, “how she got her body back.” Over the last couple of years Britney has been out of shape because of her pregnancies and personal issues. No one is saying she has it all “back together” but i do think she is slowly taking the necessary steps to get back there. Everyone knows women are the target audience in these magazines because they are the main consumers who purchase them. I think the article is just giving advice on how to lose weight in a healthy manner. People just read too much on the “images” and “messages” they think the media is trying to convey. Id rather have someone who has meat on their body like britney be a role model (for that reason) on how to achieve a healthy body weight then an anorexic looking actress or model like nicole ritchie, lydnsay lohan or even paris hilton. These women are not at “healthy/average weights” and are glamorized all the time.
This persons focus seems to be on all her past mistakes…yeah she screwed up. Everyone does at some point…its just that no one cares about ur dirty laundry. So leave the girl alone and at least acknowledge that she is trying to get her emotional/mental and physical self back.

and if you’re soo against britney then why are you reading articles on her anyway???
