Britney Spears Has The Most Depressing Reason Ever For Wanting A Baby Daughter

Britney Spears and her son at the premiere of The Smurfs 2 July 2013I feel for Britney Spears, I really do. Having to still be in the spotlight after everything she’s gone through has to be really tough, but I need to know why she doesn’t have a better team around her at this point.

From everything she’s been saying lately, it sounds like she’s not getting much guidance, and she feels really alone. I know her dad still has a conservatorship over her, meaning he’s in charge of her finances and essentially her career as well, even though she’s thirty-two years old. She doesn’t seem to have much common sense about how to talk about her career — from insulting her gay fans by calling them ‘somewhat girls’ to revealing the name of her plastic surgeon and some of the ‘fun stuff’ he’s done to her — and she certainly doesn’t have much say-so about it, considering she thought the video for ‘Work Bitch’ was unnecessarily sexy and wishes it had been toned down.

She’s also been giving some questionable advice, like when she said that if you’re hurting after a break-up, all you have to do is get another guy really quick so you don’t have to feel sad. Which makes sense when you look at her dating record and her history of falling in love with guys after like thirty seconds; she’s using other people as validation because she doesn’t know how to get it from herself.

Bottom line, she’s lonely, and she thinks the solution to that problem is having another baby. A girl this time. Here’s what she told InStyle:

“I would like to be busy the first couple of years, but then I would really like to have another baby, a girl. I think she would be like a mini-me. I think it’s going to be crazy. I’m not going to feel as alone in the world anymore. I’m going to feel like I have a second person, like, that’s me.”

Agh. AGH. This makes me so nervous, you guys. This is why I was saying we shouldn’t pretend like Britney is ‘back’. I feel like everything she’s been saying and doing lately points to the fact that she has a big sadness-shaped hole inside her, and asking her to keep performing like she doesn’t is only making it worse.

The woman wants a baby girl so she can have another version of herself beside her and not feel as alone in the world anymore. Doesn’t that break your heart?

      And this is just going to set up the girl for a complex and lots of mom issues. My mom wanted a daughter for the same reasons, and when I turned out nothing like her, she was devastated. Not a great way to have a relationship with your mom, or any self esteem whatsoever.

        Kids should never be born with a job or to make their parents feel a certain way, I agree.

      Wow this really did make me feel bad for Britney :(

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Me too. Girl needs friends!

      My own personal mini-me (her twin is a mini-he looking just like her father) reacts thusly:

        Oh my god. Adorable.

      Oh wow, that is going to be one messed up little girl….

      Are you joking? This is the reason MANY women want baby girls. They want to dress them up like them and have mini me’s. Not saying that’s a great reason to want a daughter, but so what?! This blog has really taken a turn for the worse…run by mean girls.

        yeah but wanting one so she doesn’t feel “alone in this world”…that’s pretty depressing, isn’t it? I really didn’t take this article to be mean spirited.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Yup, it’s not intended to be!

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        What did you feel like was mean about what I said? I have a lot of empathy for Britney and the situation I believe her to be in.

      Britney has never been “back.” THAT STATEMENT IS BEYOND DELUSIONAL. She clearly still has issues that she needs to sort out. Her sister, Jamie Lynn, was smart to step away from the spotlight when her pregnancy broke out and today she’s just a normal girl. I think things would have been different for Britney today had she not been forced back into the fame circus so early in her recovery.

      This is just beyond sad.. I was never a Britney fan but, this girl needs to give it up, her folks should just let her be.. I don’t think her heart is in it anymore and even though it seems like she’s trying, she just shouldn’t! She needs tough love and a few understanding yet no nonsense girlfriends.. Oh and also, she needs to watch Frozen! I feel like I should invite her home and watch Brave and Frozen – back to back with her..

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I know! I feel like she just wants to make the people around her happy. Let her give it a rest, guys.

      I hear this a lot from very young girls contemplating having babies. They don’t feel validated from their family, friends, teachers or other people in their lives. They’re lonely and get the idea that a baby will give them a sense of purpose. They insist that a baby will love them, in a way that they don’t feel loved by the people around them. For some there is definitely that idea that if they love a child and are a “better” mother to their child than their own mother was to them that the pain or anger will go away. That they can almost be reborn and live vicariously through their own “mini me” child.

      It’s of course wrong and even delusional but it’s not a new idea to me and it doesn’t actually surprise me that Britney thinks this way. She might be 32 but a lot of people who explode in fame and fortune in their teenage years are emotionally and mentally crippled by it.
