Patrick Hruby of ESPN.com’s ‘Page 3′ commented on Britney Spears’ recent message to fans claiming she plans on taking time off for a while. “Suffice to say we’ve long suspected you crave media attention the way most folks crave oxygen,” Hruby writes. “We’re also pretty sure that your current album is laughable. Not in the har-har way. As such, we figure your promised hiatus is simply another PR stunt designed to prop up your flagging musical fortunes. Of course, we could be wrong. We hope so. Honest. But we need a little something to go on. So show us you mean business. Prove yourself.” The entire story, including their checklist for Britney to ensure she’s “truly committed to being ignored”, has since been removed at espn.go.com.
