    Issy Beech, writing for Noisey, on Britney Spears:

    LeAnn Rimes also said in her interview with Metro that she admired Britney. “I look at her and think it’s really amazing what she’s overcome. It’s nice to see someone come out the other side and be successful again.”

    That’s the quote that deserves follow-up articles. That’s the quote. Because Britney Spears is still one of the most successful women in pop.

    I loved this article. I remember when all of this was going down in 2007, my mom and I were watching TV and she kept saying "That poor woman, she can't ever get left alone. They're making her lose it, and they don't even care." I was 13 so I was totally indifferent to the whole thing, but it's sad that almost every average-American knew that the media was destroying her, and no one talked about it. Everyone just kept piling on because they wanted ratings and readers; gone was the "integrity" of the media. Though, you can argue it was gone before that, but like the article said, this was just the most public breakdown at that time.

    It's been amazing watching her rebound from that and come out on top.

    Yesssss. This article is fantastic and everyone should read it.

    The way the media treats celebrities is generally disgusting, and even more so when it comes to mental health. It's really refreshing to read an article that frames it in the opposite light.

    On the flip side, she also kept getting chance after chance because people like a comeback story almost as much as they like a fall-from-the-top story.
