Britney Spears: Married 'for wrong reasons'



The media onslaught preceding Britney Spears' documentary Britney: For the Record (Sunday, 10 p.m., MTV) rolls on, with a clip hitting YouTube in which the poplet admits she probably shouldn't have married Kevin Federline. Also, you shouldn't stick a fork in a light socket or drink bleach.

"I think I married for the wrong reasons," Spears says as Womanizer drones on. "Instead of following my heart and, like, doing something that made me really happy, I just did it because, for ... the idea of everything."

It suddenly occurred to us that a documentary exploiting Brit by discussing how she's been exploited may not be the best idea. Also, her comeback is showing us once again that popular culture rewards people who are obviously fake and always appear fabulous while being mentally ill. But then, The Juice* ain't the behavioral sciences division at Johns Hopkins, so tune in on Sunday already.
