Not really. It's been reported that medics at the hospital have classified Britney Spears as 'GD' – or Gravely Disabled, which allows them to keep Britney against her will.
Seeing Britney Spears described as Gravely Disabled by expert professionals might look incredibly shocking, but don't worry – Gravely Disabled is actually two or three notches up from Wanting To Marry Kevin Federline, so at least we can presume that Britney Spears is on the up and up.
It's probably fair to admit that Britney Spears' personal life crossed over from 'entertaining' to 'genuinely distressing' about the time that we all realised that Britney hadn't shaved her head for a drunken bet. And intermittently following that episode, Britney Spears' life has burst through one new low after another, defying anyone who assumed that she'd see the light and try to get help after each one.
But even by her standards, concerns for Britney Spears' health have gone into overdrive this year. Already she's been taken to hospital after locking herself in a bathroom with her son and caught sobbing on a kerb after a fight with her manager. Don't think that's low enough? OK – Britney Spears was sectioned yesterday after her psychiatrist decided that she was a risk to herself and others.
Fortunately, the reports of an attempted suicide appear to be wide of the mark, but nevertheless Britney Spears has been put on psychiatric hold, which means she'll be kept in hospital for 72 hours, with a likelihood that doctors will extend her stay for a further 14 days.
That likelihood is because Britney Spears has been classified as GD – short for Gravely Disabled – which means she's medically not able to feed or dress herself. Being Gravely Disabled is apparently one of the criteria for involuntary commitment. According to Sky:
Sources at the UCLA Medical Center, where Brit is staying, have told TMZ that Britney has been classified as "GD" – Gravely Disabled. They also reported that she arrived at the hospital at around 2.15am (LA time) yesterday morning, but wasn't admitted until 4.15am because she was causing such a scene in the hospital. According to peeps on the scene, Britney shouted: "The only reason she's admitting me is because she wants to be alone with her boyfriend. She wants to sleep with my boyfriend."
Now, nobody knows who the 'she' is that Britney Spears was referring to, but even the thought that there's anyone on the planet who wants to sleep with creepy old Adnan Ghalib shows that Britney is in a worse state than any of us could have imagined.
Also being reported today is Britney Spears' average intake, which – depending on who you believe – consisted of handfuls of ADHD drugs, ten laxative pills and 20 Red Bulls per day. Which does seem like a confusing mixture, unless of course Britney wanted to concentrate on shitting energetically, but who'd want to do that?
Hopefully things will quieten down around Britney Spears as she settles into her hospital stay now, and she'll be able to get some time to rest and reflect. Because surely things can't get any worse for her than this.
Although we've lost count of the times we've said that in the past.
