For the Britneys of the World

I wonder if cameras really can steal the souls
Of young people caught up in celebrity roles

So many pictures, so many times,
24/7, no reasons, no rhymes

Except they’re famous for being famous, not for their art –
Do they become soulless and devoid of their heart?

Being photographed always, world-center stage,
Perhaps camera-flashes transform to flashes of rage

That explode so volcanically – Who’s at the controls?
I wonder if all those pics really did steal their souls

No matter how brightly their shooting star shone
It seems that celebrities are very alone

    Have you ever heard of a show called "South Park" They have an episode (you can watch it online for free at devoted to your subject matter with Miss Spears. I should warn you though they put a much darker spin on it, particularily with the cameras. Also I became a fan only after her album "Blackout". I figured after all she's been through she may have something more relevant to say than 'you drive me crazy, I just can't sleep. I'm so excited I'm in too deep'. I was right.
