Transcript of Britney Spears: A Tragic Hero

A Tragic Hero
To me a tragic hero would be someone who has potential, respect or fame but has a flaw or tragedy that beats out his or her heroic characteristics.
Britney's Bio
Born-December 2nd, 1981
Her occupation is a singer and Television Personality
She was born in Kentwood, Louisiana
Her full name is Britney Jean Spears
She is currently still alive

Britney's Comeback
The end result of Britney Spears didn't end in death, it actually ended with her “coming back”. She got her life back on track.
She brought home three awards back for "Piece of Me"
She took and extensive tour with her ex-husband so that she could spend more time with her children.
She also began to settle down and told
Magazine "I don't like going out ... I love my home and staying in bed and watching Dancing with the Stars or reading a Danielle Steel novel. I'm kind of boring."
Was it a Tragedy?
Yes, I believe that Britney's timeline of troubles are a tragedy. The definition of tragedy that supports my answer is "
a dramatic composition, often in verse, dealing with a serious or somber theme, typically involving a great person destined to experience downfall or utter destruction, as through a character flaw or conflict with some overpowering force, as fate or an unyielding society."
When you put into consideration Britney's flaws and out of control attitude it is really shown through her actions and immaturity, through being an adult and mother, wife and friend.
Britney's Troubles
Some of Britney's majors flaws were....
Britney didn't have a lot of self-control
Caught partying at night clubs frequently where she earned her nickname "Animal".
Britney at times she didn't have a whole lot of self respect for her image. She had, at times, really embraced her inner "white trash".

Tragic Events
She was caught driving with her infant in her lap.
It had been reported that she had checked in then out of rehab and was on her way to Miami to visit family and friends. After being told she was unable to have guardianship of her children, Britney entered a random salon where she shaved all of her hair off.
Also caught associated in a hit-and-run in a parking lot.

Unfortunate Circumstances

At 21 years old she tried drugs, just out of curiosity.
She started up again, attended the night clubs and parties even after her marriage with Federline.
Was thought, that after she had children she would stop the partying, but NO.
She had really started to show the world her "white trash" side with all the drinking and partying.
I believe that Britney created all of her unfortunate circumstance's on her own. Yes, there were other problems that may have contributed such as becoming famous or an actor so young*. Or maybe even some family struggles.
