Britney’s ranting fan to star on TV

How difficult is it to be on television these days? According to this Washington Post article, apparently, not really. All you have to do is cry over the media's bashing Britney’s sub-par (I'm being generous) performance and post it on YouTube. And when you reach 8 million hits, (and if you’re lucky), you’ll receive a deal with a production house by the name of 44 Blue, wanting to “docusoap” the experience.

That’s what happened to Chris Crocker, the guy who has made a name for himself by ranting about the negativity surrounding Spear’s “comeback” show on the MTV Video Music Awards, and saying how the media’s sole interest is to make money off of her troubling career. (And defending Britney by calling out the misfortunate events in her life.) In his video post he says:
"What you don't realize is that Britney is making you all this money and all you do is write a bunch of crap about her! She hasn't performed onstage in years -- her song is called 'Gimme More' for a reason, because all you people want is more, more, MORE ! Leave her alone! You're lucky she even performed for you bastards! . . . Leave Britney alone -- Please !

"Leave Britney Spears alone right now ! I mean it! Anyone who has a problem with her, you deal with me! Because she is not well right now. Leave her alone!"

I'm sorry to say but, who’s the one using poor Britney for money now? 44 Blue President Rasha Drachkovitch told trade paper Variety that production “is going to pretty much be the ‘Chris Crocker experience.’”(Someone remind me NOT to watch this. Oh wait, I'm not going to need a reminder.)

Crocker Mockers were fast to respond through YouTube with comical sequences such as a video in which a middle-age guy claiming to be Crocker's dad throws the same outburst and thinks to himself where he went wrong as a father. Even celebrities like Seth Green have been participating in Crockeresque rants, applying eyeliner in between to humor the 19-year-old’s devastation over the Britney bashing, the article mentions.

Poor Britney, indeed. Even her fans are now using her.
