Britney didn't leave fame and millions of dollars to go raise a family. Her husband is a complete deadbeat, with two illigitimate children under his belt already. Britney Spears' net worth is somewhere in the neighborhood of $150 million. Her engagement alone spawned a TV deal and a horrible reality show. Britney's so-called "career hiatus" came at a time when her popularity was slowing down; her last world tour, grossing $34 million was cut short due to a UKI (Unfortunate Knee Injury). This was just after signing a $10 million deal with Pepsi, "writing" a horrible book about her mom, and starring in one of the worst movies in history. Oh yeah, and she opened a restaurant in NYC too. Go check it out, "it sells roadkill y'all."
She's also very active in politics and her opinions are both respected an admired. Said in an interview on what her political leanings are, "Honestly, I think we should just trust our president in every decision that he makes and we should just support that, you know, and be faithful in what happens." However, news leaked in the press that top U.S. politicians banned her from appearing at the Republican Convention in August of 2004 because of her raunchy persona citing "We're a serious political party and don't need Britney to promote us. Besides which, with the headlines she's been recently attracting we think she'd do more harm than good to the Bush cause".
I hate her.
