@pica: she CAN'T pull it together b/c she doesnt know how, b/c people have been pulling her shit together for her for years.

can you imagine having NEVER experienced failure, or what failure you did experience was always tempered and painted in rosy colors? we'd all be fucked up too.

i don't think she has any concept of how to take care of herself - girl probably hasn't brushed her own hair in 10 years, and now we all expect her to be cognizant enough to recognize she has a problem?

the system in general is failing these women - yeah, their parents should have seen it coming, but to be honest, they probably DID see it coming, and were too caught up in the industry and the fame seduction and the money to know what to do.

and this is nothing new - michael jackson has been on this same downward spiral for 20 years, but had enough money to relatively 'shelter' his destruction from the general public.
