Britney Spears' Obituary in the Works

Britney Spears' Obituary in the Works

The Associated Press (oh, just the world’s largest news organization) has already begun preparing Britney Spears‘ obituary!!!

“We are not wishing it, but if Britney passed away, it’s easily one of the biggest stories in a log time,” AP entertainment editor Jesse Washington tells Us Weekly.

“I think one would agree that Britney seems at risk right now,” Washington adds. “Of course, we would never wish any type of misfortune on anybody and hope that we would never have to use it until 50 years from now…but if something were to happen, we would have to be prepared.”

  • caliblonde

    Thats just wrong and pathetic

  • boo

    totally disgusting!! who does that?!

  • Jenn

    That’s seriously pathetic. Britney can be a bit outrageous and all, but she seems like a nice person. They just need to leave her alone. That’s awful, who in their right mind would write an obituary? Awful. Sick too.

  • docomo

    that;s so wrong, why don’t they all jusy leave her alone for a time ?! gosh..

  • hef

    Not news. Any respectable media outlet has obits ready for political figures and major celebrities at risk of croaking. No one wishes Britney dead – it would be a shame – but I think everyone is eager to see how far they can “push” her. This is developing into an interesting little drama…..


    Macabre, in every sense of the word.

  • LOL

    totally off topic.

    HAPPY 1000 PAGES JJ! :D


    Utterly macabre!

    This is not something new; it has been the standard practice for most news outlets for many years – the BBC, CNN, US national networks, Associated Press, etc. (The entertainment shows as well.) They keep an up-to-date ‘inventory’ of obituaries of the top, say, 100 most newsworthy people. Actors/newsmakers who are elderly, those who are chronically ill, every major foreigh leader – even anyone in the entertainment business with a known drug or alcohol problem. And so on. They do it because as soon as the news comes down that someone has passed, there’s no research involved and the obit can be disseminated immediately. It’s also someone’s job to keep them up to date.

    It may seem to many to be morbid or uncalled for, but it’s a fact of life in the news business. I’m not surprised Britney would be on anyone’s ‘list’.

  • ae

    she is really going to killherself if the media and antifans continue doing bad things to her and stalking her. leave her alone. that’s so rude of the what-s his name association

  • unkind

    what a tasteless comment. shame on you jj for repeating it. of course the aap has an obit on everybody of note in the works .

  • yolly

    Why in the world someone is preparing for an obituary to a person that is not dead yet? That’s is just a shame. By haunting her all the time is not helping her at all. Just leave her alone & it seems the papz are pushing her over the edge. She needs help desperately. I hope, she seek help that she badly needed. Where are her mom, dad & sister?

  • African Girl

    What…why..okay, this is a joke right? There’s NO way someone, who’s supposed to know better, would make that kinda morbid statement…in public.

  • [~F a m o u s~]

    i’m actually expecting her death, very, very soon.

    kinda looking foward to it. lol =X

  • Danielle

    I found this to be revolting!

  • Jen

    This is actually quite common. Obituaries are prepared for high profile people many years in advance.

  • God

    I think what they’re saying is they need her dead whether it’s suicide all the press murders her. They need to be right. Too many people of power look like complete fools.

  • http://myspace/muffymutt zanessafan-

    Feel sorryn for her

  • xena

    I dont buy that the press dont want it.. they want it.. they want this news as soon as possible. What I think is bizarre, of course.

  • bdj

    That is just plain wrong. Anybody can turn their life around. Give the girl some room.

  • Lariissa :)


  • Helena

    #23, you’re sick. Well you’re a TomKat fanboy, afterall.

  • 2BTRU

    To be fair, most, if not all, newspapers begin compiling info for obitiuaries early—that’s why when a celebrity dies, their obituary is printed so soon.

  • martine

    well, i can’t say i blame them for planning ahead. yes, it’s morbid and they probably shouldn’t be speaking about it but well….i just don’t really care what happens to her anymore. if that makes me a bad person so be it. my concern has officially shifted to just her children and i have no emotions left for her but disgust and disdain.


    Ok im not a britney fan , but for god sake to say such things is just horrible and disgusting whishing that WOW im speechless , the limit of some of these so called press is getting too far….im actually more shocked by such statement than britney .

  • CKM

    This is common practice at the Associated Press. Honestly, my friend’s sister works for the AP in San Antonio and they have obituary files for local celebrities.


    ohmigod, did y’all saw the bloody panty of da brit at x 17 online? disgusting as hell, next, she’ll show her poopy panty for the world to see, nice, bring it on da brit.

  • martine

    yes, the pix on x-17 are lovely. she’s such a lady. disgusting. her boys and family would be better off without this source of misery and embarrassment. those poor children…when they grow up to see all of these pictures, videos etc

  • marie

    These people are vultures waiting to make money off this poor girl’s misfortune. People may not like what she is doing and even blame her for the publicity but Britney is obviously sick and needs help to get out of the grave she’s digging for herself by not doing so rather than being helped into the grave by those in need of the biggest story of the decade.

  • jjabrams



  • http://deleted vana

    That is really so sad , i wonder how her immediate fam. are reacting to this.

  • matt

    I’m a journalist. Just a general note, the AP writes obituaries for most celebrities long in advance of any ill health.

  • shaddap

    That’s an awful thing to do but at the same time I’m scared for her. I think she needs help and not on her terms. I hope she’s gonna be ok. I really do.

  • Brit is a homewrecker

    Jenn @ 01/17/2008 at 5:30 pm

    That’s seriously pathetic. Britney can be a bit outrageous and all, but she seems like a nice person.
    No she is not nice. She is a homewrecking wh*re. She has a penchant for sleeping with married men, and sleeping with men with pregnant wives and girlfriends.
    SHE’S A SL*T!

  • suzy

    um ok

  • b

    that is just sick. wrong!

    i believe she will be ok, she’ll get healthy…i wish her the best. stay strong britney!

  • chad

    OMG that is rude and discusting altho im not a big fan of her i would never right anything like that

  • chad

    OMG that is rude and discusting altho im not a big fan of her i would never right anything like that

  • Jules

    People have been saying for a while she’s the next Anna Nicole. Someone is her family needs to get a set of balls and help her out!!
    It’s like watching a train wreck about to happen and you can’t do a darn thing.

  • Fabiana

    She has to stop acting like a crazy woman…that´s why people think she is going to die soon.

  • fakename

    All newspapers and news orgs have this stuff prepared in advance. Stop getting your panties in a twist, y’all, and get a clue. If George Clooney died at 5 today, they’d have his obit ready to go as well. DUH
