AP prepares Britney Spears obit
(Daily News Staff)
Live fast and die young. The beautiful corpse part would be a matter of opinion.
As Britney Spears’ self-destructive behavior has continued to escalate in recent months, The Associated Press and other news organizations are preparing obituaries for the unraveling pop star - just in case.
Usmagazine.com reported that the AP will have an obit at the ready in the event of Spears' untimely demise.
“We are not wishing it, but if Britney passed away, it’s easily one of the biggest stories in a long time,” AP entertainment editor Jesse Washington told the celeb-gossip magazine.
Spears was admitted to a hospital psych ward earlier this month when she refused to turn over her young sons to the bodyguard of ex-hubby Kevin Federline. Rumors began to circulate that the fallen pop star was suicidal.
Combine this with her wild driving and suspected rampant drug and alcohol abuse, and the Britney death watch is officially on.
