She's Back and Better than Ever!, 1 December 2008
Author: FrannyBeanz from Staten Island, NY

So I figured I'd take a chance last night and watch the new Britney Spears documentary on MTV, chronicling her life for 60 days, beginning on the eve of the MTV Video Music Awards this past September. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. It's no secret that Britney's life has been a crazy roller-coaster ride for the past few years. But when all is said and done, inside, she's just a normal person like you and I. It turns out that she's got a great sense of humor (her impression of her father was hysterical!), she's very perceptive and intelligent, and she goes through turmoil and pain like the rest of us do. This documentary definitely showed us that Britney is just a regular girl who just happens to be chased around by photographers day and night. It really broke my heart to watch some of the things she has to go through. Just exiting a vehicle and entering a building is a project in itself for Brit, and I couldn't imagine having to live like that. I definitely have a newfound respect for her after watching this special. She's just a normal person who loves her babies, loves to work, hang out and goof around with friends. I have no doubt that with the upcoming release of her newest album, "Circus", Brit will definitely shine. She has the drive, she has the talent, and now she has the support of her family and of people who really care about her, not those who have taken advantage of her in the past, as she discusses. Not to sound corny, but I'm definitely inspired by her - she shows that no matter the obstacle, no matter what kind of mess you've gotten yourself into, there's always that light at the end of the tunnel. She may have stumbled a bit to get to this point, but it's safe to say that Britney has finally seen that light. I wish her much success!! She deserves it.
