Britney Spears Having A Rough Time Again

Britney Spears (2012)
I received word that there is trouble in Britney Spears' camp. The 35-year-old singer, who was famously placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold in Los Angeles on two separate occasions in 2008, suffering from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, is getting agitated with the state of her life and career. Spears has been married and divorced twice and experienced failed engagements.

Spears most recent albums have flopped on the charts, leaving her owing her record label Sony money for expensive songs, music videos and marketing that did not pan out in the sales department. As her concert sales began to decline as well, Spears took up a residency in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Spears is obsessing over her career and changing looks, as she is showing the signs of aging. Spears has aged fast as the stress of the wild life she was living in her twenties, which entailed illegal narcotics, alcoholism and wild partying took its toll. The combination of 10 pharmaceutical drugs to keep her severe mental illness under control also aided in aging the star's appearance.

Spears has turned to plastic surgery to help her with her body. However, she did not want excessive procedures done to her face, which is showing the signs of aging more than others her age for the aforementioned reasons. In the pop music world, this is a dilemma, as through marketing practices, labels have trained consumers to believe only youth is buyable. This is traditionally how pop music has worked, unlike R&B and rock, where artists' ages do not take precedence over the quality of the music.
