An open letter to ‘False Tabloids’

Dear False Tabloids

As you read this letter, I bet you are asking yourself: Who? Who, me? Am I a false tabloid? Well, I don’t know. But after this posting, I hope you are asking yourself a lot of questions.

Your employees are a reflection of your magazine. Do you, Us Weekly, In Touch, Star and other desperate magazines want employees who are honest, or those who are liars? It seems to me that you’d prefer the latter. I’m really concerned about the people you hire to work at your companies.

I’d like them to ask themselves the question, “What am I lying to myself about?” Is it that you are 50 pounds overweight? Is it that your children aren’t making wise decisions? Or is it maybe that your husband or boyfriend is cheating on you? Until you face what is going on in your life, I guess you’ll remain a false tabloid.

P.S. People Magazine is great in my book!

“Allure” magazine interview

After a self-imposed break from the spotlight Britney Spears speaks up about marriage, motherhood, Michael Jackson, and how the paparazzi (unwittingly) helped her get her life back on track. Not long ago, Britney Spears fled the paparazzi of Los Angeles and retreated to a luxury hotel in Santa Barbara. They had tracked her down shopping in a maternity-and-baby store, which is as juicy a tabloid item as finding Brad Pitt outside the United Nations loitering with a DVD of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider tucked under his arm.

Britney shoots for “Allure” magazine

Britney will be the cover star of the upcoming issue of “Allure” magazine, saying, “I haven’t done a photo shoot in a while, it was such a great collaboration. (Michael Thompson is one of my all time favorite photographers.) I feel the article focused too much on my personal life and various events from my past.

“I’ve already dealt with these issues with the support of my family & friends and have fully moved on. In the future, I will refrain from discussing my private life in interviews. It will be expressed solely through art.”

Britney talks Kabbalah

Madonna first introduced Kabbalah to me at a time in my life when it was much needed. It has helped me get rid of a lot of negative influences that were guiding me down the wrong path. There came a point where not even my family or my advisors had the answers I needed. The answers I was looking for were all in my heart. Through Kabbalah, I was able to look within myself, clear all the negative energy and turn my life around. Now that the chaos has subsided, I finally feel as though I have the control I’ve wanted over my own destiny. I’m in a place where I can take Kabbalah seriously and truly learn from it. Whatever your religion may be, it’s amazing what the power of prayer can do, it can even perform miracles!
