How To Promote A Record… And How Not To

The Sun was running comparative photos, since removed, of former S Club star Rachel Stevens promoting her new single ‘Funky Dory’ in contrast with crying in an interview with ABC News’ Diane Sawyer on ‘Primetime’. Victoria Newton suggests Rachel’s publicity photo is how to promote a record, while Spears’ blubbering is how not to.

    Was she crying because of Justina? Hmm please I thought she was crying because of her parent’s split and her aunt getting cancer. I didn’t watch it so I wouldn’t know, hmm please girl that boy is not worth any tears.

    LOL I love it when she’s crying like an idiot. And NO, it was a lame publicity stunt. Too bad it got low ratings. HA! Nice acting, bitch

    Okay, she poses 80% nude in magazines and they say she’s trying to promote herself, and now she cried about a sensitive subject and they say she’s trying to promote herself like that too? Make up your damn mind people! I don’t think Britney cried to promote her album and she wasn’t crying because of her break up with Justin in particular. Diane Swayer told Britney she had a tough year with her break up, her parent’s divorce, illness’ in the family, and everything that went on in London and Mexico and that’s when Britney started crying. Oh my god, the girl is only human and she cries too!

    She wasn’t specifically crying because of the Justin thing, she was crying because of ALL the sh** that happened to her this year…a lot did, and it was pretty much all bad…put yourself in her position for a minute before you judge…I’ll quote one of her songs right now “You don’t know what its like to be me” And you don’t…no one does… And like this Rachel’s album will sell…no one even knows who she is! Geez…this is so funny and completely ridiculous to compare these two…and it’s not like this is the only thing Brit is doing to promote the new album…look at all the magazine covers she’s on lately!! Nice try though guys.

    And what was her purpose on accepting that damn interview? She even said that Diane is an expert when it comes to making people cry. It’s all about publicity. Her album is coming out next week. What a stupid publicity whore. The whore is Unlimited and selfish. She’s even using her aunt, Justin and Christina for publicity. Shame on you, Spears!

    I wouldn’t go as far as to say that the breaking down on national television was a publicity stunt……not that I really feel sorry for her or anything, but I liked to see that side of her… I mean, it kinda showed her down on everyone’s level, instead of her arrogance thinking she’s above us all. I’m not saying that “oh, her crying it was great…ha ha”…. It’s more like “see, you’re only human…’re just like everyone else…loose your ego please” sort of idea. (not saying that I didn’t get a sick twisted kick out of seeing it……but it’s not something I’m gonna hold against her either) Hell, who knows….maybe it WAS for publicity…..who knows. All I know is I’d rather see THIS than the nearly naked ego maniac we USUALLY see.

    Anyways, as much as I think Britney is totally undeserving of her fame, her crying really struck a cord with me. It didn’t look at all like the people who fake cry because she looked like she was trying to hide it. And once she started it looked like she was trying really hard to stop, then finally just broke down and asked them to stop the interview. I don’t know how some of you can say that you enjoyed seeing her do this. I bash her just as much as you guys, but even I’ll admit that I got a little misty eyed when she started crying. C’mon guys, you know it was sad :*(

    She’s had a hard year? the hardest thing she’s had is Fred Durst’s Limp Bizkit rimming her saggy ass. all she’s done is shopped, screwed, tanned, partied and earned millions from doing nothing. that’s not a hard year. everyone else gets it a lot harder than her. ungrateful little bitch. the crying wasn’t fake because she’s too awful an actress. but it was lame and self-important. she has such an ego. expects everyone to bow down to her and everything to be perfect, then throws all her toys out of the pram when it doesn’t. I pity her for thinking she’s had it that hard that she needs to cry on TV…shes so pathetic and sheltered. Stupid little whiner.

    I am far from a Britney fan, but it is just plain rude to enjoy her crying on national TV because you don’t like her. I’ve seen her acting and it is not that convincing, so I honestly believe that she was truly sad. I understand cause I get the same way whenever I cry in front of anyone because I hate to show that much emotion in public.

    I didn’t watch this, considering I’m not a Britney fan. However, that doesn’t mean I enjoy watching her, or anyone else, cry. I don’t take pleasure in watching someone cry. But, I do not pity her or have any sympathy for her. Compared to people all over, she’s had a charmed life, she’s got fame, fortune, can buy whatever she wants when she wants, and never has to worry about a thing, has private jets charter her places, and whatnot. People are homeless, starving, and can’t get jobs. Life far more cruel than she realizes. She’s incredibly sheltered. She may feel she’s had a rough year, but in reality, there are people out there who have it worse than she ever could imagine. Now, this could be any star in her place, saying what she’s saying, and I still wouldn’t have any sympathy towards them. Her fans are the reason she is where she is today, and why she’s living an extravagant life. I’ll bet anything that her fans have worse times in life than she’ll ever know. She has no idea what it’s like to truly struggle in life. I just can’t sympathize.
