If you have an active e-mail loop, you must have received those Britney Spears photos. You know, the “going commando” (thanks for explaining the term, Polo) pics? When I received the first set of photos, my response to the sender was why is it that when a woman finally ditches her no-good husband, the most common reaction is “magwala”. I don’t know the equivalent word in English…. something like “going wild”.
Makes me wonder how repressive marriage can be for some women that separation serves as an equivalent of freedom. Observe an animal that has spent a long time in captivity. Once the cage is opened, it either shies away from stepping out — as though too scared of too unfamiliar grounds, or it runs or flies so wildly that it often slams against walls, posts, trees… I’ve seen it happen with dogs and birds.
In Britney’s case, is her bizarre behavior some sort of emotional release?
Or is it something peculiar among showbiz folk? You want to make a big comeback so you want people to talk about you, land on the front pages… you know, create the proverbial buzz… so you let the paparazzi catch you without underwear. Hilarious. And sad.
