Once Backstreet Boy AJ McLean, is the latest figure to reach out to Britney Spears and offer his help. McLean spoke to a PEOPLE crew at the Hysteric Glamour VIP preview party last night and send a message to Brit.
“I believe in her 110 percent, but she needs to call [me],” said McLean. “If her publicist or somebody can get in touch with me, I just want to sit down with her and have it out.”
When asked what he’d offer to Spears, McLean says, “First I would say, ‘What the hell is wrong with you?’ Second I would say, ‘What is really wrong with you? What are you not saying to everybody else?’ ”
“She has given people hints of her troubles, but fear is a really big thing, and depression. … I’ve been through it. I’m coming up on six years sober,” he said at the party hosted by Tracey Ross and Courtney Love in West Hollywood. “I just want to sit her down and pick her brain.”
McLean is a recovering alcoholic whose been through a similar fame as Britney Spears and survived to tell. He said he strongly believes that Britney wants to – and can – grow out of this and that he could help her with her struggles.
What do you think? Can McLean help Brit? Should she do it? Would she even consider it?
