Britney Spears’ Burnout
Many people know of the difficulties that Britney Spears, a popular singer, has experienced. News cameras and paparazzi followed her around everywhere until Britney finally had a mental breakdown. She went through a divorce with her husband and father of her two kids, Kevin Federline, she shared a kiss with Madonna on stage at one of her concerts, she shaved her head completely leaving her bald, was admitted to a rehabilitation center, and had her father take over her finances. These are only a few things that Britney Spears experienced due to her psychological disorder.
One might ask, “What kind of psychological disorder must Britney Spears have if she had gone ...view middle of the document...

If one exhibits at least five of these symptoms, one can be diagnosed with major depressive disorder. (Beidel, Bulick, Stanley, 2013).
Britney Spears has definitely experienced at least five of these different symptoms to be considered to be suffering from major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder. Spears had a few violent outbursts after appearing to be calm and collected. A few days after Spears shaved her head, she went to pick up her kids from her ex-husbands house to take them back to her house to spend some quality time with them. After she rang the doorbell multiple times and no one answered, paparazzi came out of their cars and started snapping pictures of her trying to get into Federline’s home. Spears couldn’t take it anymore and didn’t like the paparazzi following her around so she took an umbrella from her car and started to beat up one of the paparazzi who were trying to snap pictures of her. (“Friends: Britney Suffers,” 2008). After she was done beating him up, she took her umbrella and smashed the window of another paparazzi’s car. This was the day before Federline would get full custody of their children so she took her aggravation out in the wrong way and at the wrong people. After this incident, she admitted to herself that she had a problem and checked herself into a rehabilitation facility to get medicine and be treated. (“Britney Spears Beats,” n.d.).
It has also been hard for Britney Spears, like a lot of other celebrities, who have paparazzi following their every move. Some celebrities have the willpower and can avoid and/or deal with people taking pictures of every little thing they do in their lives such as what they where, where they go, and who they are seen with. However, others, like Britney Spears, don’t have the mental capability to not be affected by being the cover story in the tabloids or being featured in the newspaper. ABC News featured a story the day after Britney Spears shaved her head with testimonials from the hairdresser of the salon she went to. The hairdresser reported that in 2007, Britney Spears came into the salon complaining about her extensions being too tight and asking the hairdresser to shave her head. After the hairdresser refused to do so and walked over to Spears’ bodyguard to talk to him, Spears grabbed a buzzer and shaved her head herself. The hairdresser remarked that Britney Spears showed no emotion while she was shaving her head besides having a few tears in her eyes. The next day, there was an auction on eBay that was trying to auction off Spears’ hair for at least $1 million. Emotional stress of someone bidding on another’s hair can definitely make someone go crazy. Additionally, after Spears left the salon, she went to a tattoo parlor and was noted to have gotten two tattoos there; one on her wrist and one on her hip. These rash decisions are more symptoms of bipolar disorder. (Marikar,nd).
