On February 5th, FX/Hulu dropped a new episode in The New York Times Presents series, titled “Framing Britney Spears.”
People can’t stop talking about the new documentary because of the gruesome insight we get into Spears’ career, and how the media failed her.
It sparked a big conversation around the media’s effect on her career, especially after her breakup from Justin Timberlake in 2002, and how everyone demonized Spears and celebrated Timberlake.
This made me want to ask you, dear reader: When did the media fail a celebrity?
Unfortunately, there are many people to choose from.
From Whitney Houston to Anna Nicole Smith, their image was construed to make them “bad,” “wild,” and “unstable” celebrities, when in reality, they were human beings going through deeply personal issues in the public eye.
