Motivational Monday: My Stoner thoughts on Britney Spears - The Stoner Mom
Monday, Jan 25, 2016

Sooo… it’s probably time I confessed my extreme love of Britney Spears.

My crushes on women are always about the misunderstood, maligned, and extraordinarily strong. Marie Antoinette, Anne Boleyn, Hillary Clinton, Madonna. I don’t know guys, I’m stoned af right now. But seriously, nothing really compares to my love of Britney Spears.

Brit-Brit is only a couple of years older than me, so when she was a teenaged media firestorm, I was a teenaged #1 fan. I thought she was gorgeous, adorable, could dance, whatever. I saw her terrible movie in the theater with like-minded girlfriends and followed her life and career the way people did with Princess Diana.

And then she went and married that one dude… and then two children in quick succession, just like me, and then. Mental breakdown. You remember. You know what I’m talking about. She went completely off the deep end a few years before I went off the deep end, and I can’t help but feel that she was publicly mocked at the height of mental illness. And no one talked about it, but post-partum depression is a fucking bitch you know? And god fucking forbid you go through it in the public eye. Birthing two children one after the other is HARD on a woman of any age or status.
