“If Britney Spears can make it through 2007, you can make it through anything” That’s a quote I see all over the internet that’s supposed to be inspirational, and in a sense it is. The year 2007 was an insane time for Britney Spears, she went from being America’s sweetheart to married to a backup dancer turned rapper, to a single mom in like 3 weeks. She went from accepting awards and appearing in Pepsi commercials to dealing with public scrutiny and a mental breakdown. At one point I’m pretty sure we saw a picture of her vagina. You know how hard you had to be fucking up for the world to see your pussy in 2007? I’m pretty sure scanners were involved. She was falling apart and we as a nation watched her, secretly hoping for the worst. You could almost hear “journalists” writing her obituary and updating her Wikipedia page. Yet somehow Britney made it through and is now she’s living a pretty decent life. Despite the paparazzi circling her like hyenas she came out stronger than she was before. It’s truly inspirational until you realize with that in 2019 we can all become Britney Spears in 2007. Thanks to the internet, cell phone cameras and social media, we’re one viral meme or moment away from being the punchline to society’s joke of the week. No one is safe from this. One bad handshake or mispronounced word on Wheel of Fortune can lead to being the laughingstock of America. We can all become “hide ya kids, hide ya wife” no one is exempt from “ain’t nobody got time for that” no one is above “catch me outside, how bow dah”. -- What do you do when you become a meme? Do you hide yourself from the cameras and live in solitude til it boils over? Do you truly believe your celebrity and you milk it for all it’s worth, making t-shirts, coffee mugs and Halloween costumes for the general public to wear? Or do you follow Danielle Bregoli aka “the Catch Me Outside Girl” aka Bhad Bhabie’s footsteps and decide to start a music career? Let this work in your subconscious while we discuss her debut mixtape “15”.
