A friend of Britney Spears tells the Daily Mail that the singer had been “thriving on the publicity of her recent behavior”. The friend added: “She feels rejected in her marriage and that he music career is really on the skids. She watched the Grammys recently – not so long ago she would have been up there on stage, now that seems like a distant memory. She feels a failure professionally and unloved in her personal life. It’s as if she is getting a kick out of doing increasingly erratic things just to see how the public and media react. Sadly, she is getting confused by what she sees as adoration, when it’s actually her fans reacting in horror.”
