UK Newspaper Describes Britney Spears as “Zombie” and “Puppet”


In the article entitled Britney Spears, Mind Control and “Hold it Against Me”, we’ve looked at the many symptoms and events indicating that Britney Spears might be under mind control. About a week after publishing the article, more telling facts are appearing in the news, where Britney is described by insiders as being absent-minded, robotic, zombie-like and highly unstable. Regarding her music career, she is said to be “a puppet who would be told what to do”.

This article from The Sun describes Britney’s robotic behaviour and the total lack of control over her career. It pretty much says much everything without outright saying it: Britney is under mind control and is completely manipulated by her handlers. She is not the only celebrity in this situation. Britney is simply becoming more transparent as she reaches 30, the age where Monarch slaves usually experience “breakdowns”.

‘Zombie’ Britney Spears is still on brink, say pals

T0 the naked eye it seems Britney Spears is back – and on her best flesh-flashing form yet.

The 29-year-old singer has returned to the spotlight with the release of her seventh album Femme Fatale, already hailed as one of the best of her career.

The CD’s launch has been supported by sexy new images, raunchy television appearances and the announcement of a huge American summer tour.

Four years after shaving off her hair during her infamous public meltdown, it looks like Britney finally has her head screwed on once again.

She appears to be back where her fans want to see her – on stage, in the charts and in skimpy outfits.


But scratch beneath the surface of the tight basques and even tighter PR machine and all is not as it seems on TV.

Members of Britney’s inner circle are terrified her pristine pop star mask could slip once again at any moment, sources have told The Sun.

They are concerned she will not be able to maintain the act for even a five-minute interview if she strays from their control – let alone a gruelling two-month, 26-date tour.

And their fears have created the most painfully stage-managed promotional tour showbiz has ever seen.

A source close to the star told The Sun: “She’s very fragile. Up until a few months ago she was still heavily medicated and popping up to ten pills a day.

“It’s like she has to be wheeled from one place to another. She can’t be trusted to do anything on her own. Whether she is performing or recording it’s the same. Sometimes she’s like a zombie. Her mood swings are unreal too. It is four years since she famously cut off all her hair and hit rock bottom.

“But as recently as last year she was still pulling the same stunt – hacking her hair off with scissors when she wanted attention from her staff and loved ones at home.”

Britney walked head-on into an airbrushing row with the pictures produced to plug her new album.

The heavily doctored snaps show the star looking slender and sexy.

But the source said: “She has lost a lot of weight for her comeback but then releasing pictures like those take any deserved credit away because they are so far removed from what she really looks like.

“And it’s not just the pictures – it’s like they are airbrushing her whole life.”

The singer’s promotional appearances in America this week have been criticised as among the most stage-managed of all time.

American TV host Carson Daly, 37, tweeted that her management had requested he hand over his pre-taped interview so they could edit it.

NBC host Carson, who has known Britney for ten years, wrote: “Even when I interviewed Michael Jackson, it wasn’t anything like this… it’s really insane.”

Central to her comeback plan was Britney performing a short, three-song set on Good Morning America on Tuesday.

But she was blasted for obviously miming and barely dancing during the performance in San Francisco.

The Billboard Charts’ associate director Keith Caulfield said: “You expect her to dance ferociously because when you’re lip syncing, we expect you to dance.”

A San Francisco paper blasted her “awkward dance moves” and “dead-eyed stare”.

The critic stormed on: “She strutted robotically, her gaze never straying to the audience.”

The Good Morning America breakfast show was apparently chosen over other outlets for the big comeback because they let her mime and allowed the appearance to be tightly controlled.


On the show Britney announced she was going on the road with pop heart-throb Enrique Iglesias, 35. But hours later he pulled out of the tour. Next it was Britney’s turn to pull the plug on a planned appearance, on Ellen DeGeneres’ popular daytime chat show.

Her team blamed “scheduling conflicts” for the move but rumours swept TV circles that the format of the show was deemed too relaxed for Britney to keep up the facade.

Instead, she took part in a tightly scripted, albeit funny, comedy skit on late night show Jimmy Kimmel Live, where she pretended to be shot into the air in a portable toilet.

Another major element of the album’s PR campaign was a role on hit TV show Glee – where again she could hide behind a script. A source on set claimed she was “out of it”.

A respected US website reported: “They led her in front of the cameras and she’d sit there like a deer in the headlights until she had to say her lines. When she was finished they’d take her by the hand and lead her away again.”

The Glee source also said she was totally reliant on her team of minders in order to function professionally. The control-freakery also made its way over the pond on Wednesday, during an interview on London’s Capital FM radio.

Britney’s ramblings were cut short when her management told the interviewer to “shut up” in his ear.

One aspect of her comeback to have dodged much of the criticism is the album itself. Despite her voice being heavily autotuned, some pop critics have called it her best yet.

A number of the tracks, filled with stomping beats and lashings of sexual innuendo, will clearly be dancefloor fixtures for years to come.

But how heavily Britney herself was involved in creating the album has also come under scrutiny.


Describing the process inside the studio, a former pal revealed: “I was with Britney when she recorded at least three of the tracks on Femme Fatale.

“It appeared she had almost nothing to do with its creation other than vocals.

“She was like a puppet who would be told what to do. She’d go into the sound booth and basically read the lyrics from a sheet.

“But they’d have to stop when she kept getting it wrong.”

Also bubbling behind the scenes is a legal row with former bodyguard Fernando Flores, 29.

He has launched a sexual harassment lawsuit against the star, accusing her of pursuing him for sex when he worked for her last year.

The former policeman has even told pals he has filthy nude photographs sent by the singer and the fear is he may release them to support his case.

One source has claimed that instead of a musical comeback, Britney should be concentrating on her health and wellbeing. Her rocky relationship with former manager Jason Trawick, 39, seems to have settled down in recent months.

She has also been praised for behaving more like a responsible mother figure to Sean Preston, five, and Jayden James, four, than ever before.

A source said: “She seems to have lost a lot of her drive – and who can blame her?

“She has been through a hell of a lot and is coming out the other side.

“But rather than the pressures of putting on her pop star mask again, she should do what makes her happiest. And if you ask me, that would be just being herself, being good a mum and eating fried chicken around the pool at home.”

I remember when she first came out and i was younger. I followed this girl around Walmart because I just knew she was Britney Spears but she wasn't lol. Anyway's i remember how Britney was and this woman here is not her. I don't have to know her in person to know that this is not her. There are just some celebrities that are so relatable that you can feel the authenticity through the tv and she was one of them. I really just want them to leave her alone. As much as I care about her and eagerly want to know about what she's doing (just to now that she's alright) I'd rather she be totally out of the spotlight than be forced to entertain us. That's not what I want out of my artists which is for them to be slaves. I want them to do it because… Read more »

> "Four years after shaving off her hair during her infamous public meltdown, it looks like Britney finally has her head screwed on once again." <

ahem .. when she had her meltdown was when she successfully struggled to breakthrough and take control of herself.

Being an empty vessel to be professionally manipulated, no matter how nicely dressed up, is *not* having your head screwed on.

Do you guys remember VC posting that video of her "hello, oh, hello, ew" interview. I noticed something.. I think her trigger words were used there. "Weird" was said right before she went insane, and all of a sudden it was all good after she said "strong britney." I think "weird" and "strong" might be trigger words for her alternate personas.

So Britney is controlled when she looks normal because of the programming and Britney is her real self when she looks troubled because she knows what situation she is in and she's not happy about it…is that right? Because I can't tell anymore..was there even a time that she was truly happy with her success with out the programming?

One thing we have to remember, is that this article is from the Sun which is basically a junky UK tabloid LITTERED with rumours. Also, throughout the article, the quotes are provided by unamed sources which basically means, the journalist made it up.

Whenever you read an article and see the word 'friend', 'source', 'bystander' – ESPECIALLY in a magazine or tabloid, the journalist has invented that quote.

The media is no longer bound by doctrines to get them to be truthful in their reporting, which is why our papers are RIFE with rumours and downright lies.

This doesn't negate that Britney may be in this situation, but this article is not the source of that truth. The only thing that can be taken on its merit is the tweet from a named friend of Britney's. Everything else is probably just another dig at Britney.

This was really sad to read. I actually feel very sorry for her. Imagine not being able to live your own life, and to be controlled so blatantly. It's very sad. Free Britney!!

The only thing i can say is God is the judge of everything..everything happens for a reason and before you remove the speck from someone else's eye,remove the speck from your own eye..God has a plan and he knows best so let what it is be what it is!

I pray for her ! you know her going into this industry she had the right mind into what she wanted to do like yeah you wanted to be a singer/dancer but then you meet these awful people and they just try to ruin and control you forver and it's like she never had a chance i wished she would had this type of information before she got into the buisness , my heart goes out to her and the others that are in her situation. its just all the good ones in the industry need to come together and take them out "good will always conquer evil" and I want to be an actor and im so thankful for discovering this website it has showed me so much i still want to be an actor but not for fame or the money i could just have a sex tape… Read more »
There are so many evidence it's like they are mocking us! You can tell its not even her anymore because all the meds,she looks so dead and sad. All the interviews she did this FEMME FATALE era are pre-recorded,she seems so nervous and awkward on stage its so clear that she doesnt want to keep doing this. Just like in the past ,when they canceled the Original Doll Album which included the songs "Rebellion" that never got leaked in a full version and probably never will because its all about this mind control, and "Mona Lisa" ,same idea,it was eventually released in a different lyrics ,"the Break the Ice" video that seems that nobody took a moment to overlook the fact that its a cheap animation video and just understand what this whole video about-britney fights the illuminatimind control/w.e youll choose to name them(atleast in my point of view),she used… Read more »


I had to add this.

If you go back to Britney's initial comeback with 'Circus,' she appeared on the David Letterman show, reading off his top ten list or whatever it is named. For NO REASON AT ALL, Britney is sitting on a desk in a two piece bikini. WHY? Why is this woman not fully clothed, when everyone else is in suits, dresses, etc.

As she reads off the top ten, you can see her forced smile, and how uncomfortable she is sitting on that desk in barely nothing! I felt so bad for her, and it was that moment I realized what was really happening to her. If someone could find that clip and post that, you all would feel really bad for this woman.

It wasn't hard to find, dude – I searched Youtube for 'Britney Letterman':

Man… this gir… woman may be used and abused everyday to have reached this point. Hardcore mind control…

It seems like the age 30 has signifigance somehow…

She said in an interview that if any of her sons wanted to be in show business that she would lock them up until they were 30.

Everyone calling for her parents to help her fail to understand that her 'parents' have been MK'd as well.

I personaly think she is bipolar and has social anxiety disorder. There are hints all though her interviews,documentaries, songs and videos to support this. She is surely on.meds now which focus mostly on treating mania and the depression episodes when they start to occur. Her dancing akwardness is mostly likely caused by walk disturbance which is a physical symptom of anxiety. I also have a idea she was possibly doing a drug maybe cocaine or ectasy at some point.. She is not crazy. It makes me sad to see her like this because as a true fan ofher i want her to live a happy normal life.. i think maybe her dad is going to far and is actually enabling her social anxiety by taking away any possible discomfort which enables the flight response with her anxiety… She is being told what to do where to go and how to… Read more »

Also the post partum depression played a.huge role when she lost her kids. Emotional things like this and stress can trigger episodes of mania , depession and mixed episodes which are the most dangerous.

Weird…I have a relative that got to meet her…she said it seemed like she was on drugs…vacant or something

I'm looking at someone worse. Lindsay Lohan

Aaliyah knew something was up so did Lef Eye. Funny how most of the these women are no longer singing.

Lets all pray for her. Why dont they just leave her they already have gaga!

Poor Britney. I can't help but feel sorry for her. At this point it seems there is no other explanation for her strange behavior other than mind control, anything else doesn't add up. I hope she can come out of this alive.

this article shows britney is still trobled, but it doesn't show her as an illuminati puppet

As an aside to the manufactured pop star angle, my roommate's kids are watching the Nickoleodeon show Big Time Rush right behind me as I type this. Something caught my attention and I turned around to watch, and my mouth fell open in horror. There's a cute young boy band in the show and the sequence I watched was a "music video" they made. The video is a sci fi parody, with the band as the crew of a ship like the Enterprise. Their producer/manager, who looks kind of Satanic with a Mephistopheles beard, plays the evil space villain. He zapped them with a gun that shot green light like lightning bolts, which forced them to start dancing like puppets, on a stage with a black grid pattern like the electroshock in other videos I've seen, and there were showers of sparks on either side of the stage. Then they… Read more »

PS – I knew I'd seen something on here that looked like the grid pattern on the stage I mentioned above – scroll down to the electroshock room photos on this VC article.

Guess Gustavo, the producer, is the boy's mind control handler.

Have you seen the South Park episode on briteny spears? WATCH IT!

Whats in it?

Don't write the poor girl off just yet but alas in Hollywood these days it seems dead celebrities are worth a lot more in net profit than when alive, they even gain more notoriety not to mention post-humous accolades, weird…… no, bizzare…… maybe. Michael i always suspected he would go before his time, he had reached a God-like status in terms of fame that it would have been easy for the world to sit up and listen albeit carefully if he saw fit to reveal the real evil shenanigans of the entertainment industry. My heart bled for Heath, such raw talent and now it has become customary even in Hollwood to hear young actors saying, "Iwill die young" when their fame crescendos to unparalleled levels, you would think they hold a special seminar to tell them that when you become 'twilight' famous overnight expect death….disturbing really. Back to Britney, I… Read more »
Britney spears's poem that she released on her website at the same day she released snippet of her song 'rebellion' Remembrance of who I am Enough of the pain Now I'm craving Something sweet, so delight How do you stand sleeping at night No more chains That you gave me. Enough of pain Now Im craving Something sweet, so delight How do you stand sleeping at night? Silly patterns that we follow You pull me in I'm being swallowed. By the ones you think you love They pull you down You can't see up above. Manipulation is the key They screw it in Because you're naive. You come to me now Why do you bother? Remember the Bible The sins of the Father. What you do You pass down No wonder why I lost my crown. You don't see me now You ask yourself why My crown is back And… Read more »

Thank you for posting this poem by her. Never seen it before but it makes sense.

I will always carry a little light of hope in my heart for Britney. She was brought up in the South and I convince myself, maybe, just maybe she will have a divine revelation and realize what is really going on. She's already made her millions. Go home, Britney! Back to Lousiana with your two kids and be normal again! It's never too late to make things right with God. I pray she does it while there's stilll time. =(

no.9 Britney Spears lost in Oz

AFAIK, Britney could truly have some mental disorder, she's human and she is just as prone to have a psychiatric or psychological problem. I don't think it's because of mind control. She's been through a lot and she probably is still recovering. Mental illness is something that one afflicted has to deal with everyday and her management is probably trying to help protect her and cope with the stresses of being a celebrity.

Yes, it's called Dissociative Identity Disorder (formerly called Multiple Personality Disorder). When commenters here mention mind control or MK Ultra they are usually referring to the multiple personalities created through the use of trauma in various forms. They (the abusers, personality creators, handlers, etc.) then use these personalities to do their bidding, thus the victims are under severely heavy mind control because the personalities are created for the purpose of doing the creators' and handlers' bidding. This is what most of the commenters here are referring to when they state that Britney is under mind control.

In stark contrast with what we know and see, Us Weekly wants us to believe nothing could be better in Britney's life..

"Describing the process inside the studio, a former pal revealed: “I was with Britney when she recorded at least three of the tracks on Femme Fatale. “It appeared she had almost nothing to do with its creation other than vocals. “She was like a puppet who would be told what to do. She’d go into the sound booth and basically read the lyrics from a sheet." It seems weird that the article isn't mentioning this guy by name even though it wouldn't be too difficult for Britneys team of handlers to track him down, and make him stop babbling. Because that's what they would want so that the theories about Britney being under controle weren't being confirmed right? Unless this is meant to get out to the public, by the elite? I often don't believe gossip news about celebs because it's almost always a "anonymous source" who is a "close… Read more »

Not every article is controlled by 'them'. The article writer could be expressing his/her feelings towards Britney Spears, just because it is in the newspaper, doesn't make it part of 'their' work.

your pretty much completely wrong about that one buddy

Another article from Sun newspaper today 8/4/11. Check it out. It springs to mind M Jackson. Do they intend to get rid off her and milk her die hard fans. Who knows. Certainly there's something dodgy here. Let's not forget who owns Sun newspaper.

BRITNEY SPEARS was last night accused of being played by a MAN in her new pop video.

The 29-year-old singer's new promo for single Till The World Ends has become the talk of the web over suspect scenes that some eagle-eyed fans believe show a male dance double performing as her….

omfg you guys notice the weird notice on MTV special "I Am Femme Fatale" as well? At first it looks as that is her voice as she all tired out. She really seems lost like her facial expression her body language is like she talks but it pretty empty well in my opinion. I LOVE britney since i was a child, and i still do but this is sad if she being push to her limits…. especially if she is UNDER MIND CONTROL! she a MOTHER for god sakes! 🙁 maybe her own way to escape is just pretend it doesnt exist but how she coping with her kids??? Also, I wonder since her new video till the world ends is all into 2012… creepy. Hmm im wearing if this fate falls for lady gaga, rihanna, ke$ha, and katy perry? Because compared to Miss Spears she is a legend to… Read more »

I feel so sorry for Britney. She doesn't deserve this at all.

no human being does

oh god… i remember i left my ipod at home so i was stuck listing to AT 40 with Ryan Secrest (spl?) ooh gosh… Britney was a guest on the show, i remember Ryan saying something along the lines of "wait hold up! i just want to point out that you(brit) look amazing! you seem to be doing great and look like you're in a really happy place right now!" and all Britney's response was soo…. DEAD…. like well a zombie, that was my inital thought when i heard her speak, and her voice so frail and weak… only speaking in short sentences… Ryan did all the talking. It was around the time I just saw that creepy still of her in Hold It Against Me, where she had this ventriloquist dummy smile plastered on her face, Soooo Creeeepyyy… I tried telling my friends about this (im in 9th grade)… Read more »

I feel sorry for her, strings have been attached to her the since she was young, she is no longer knows how to live without strings.

Damn Puppeteers.

^she no longer knows*

This story/Britney's condition is eerily similar to Marilyn Monroe's in her last days. Here's a link to a story detailing Marilyn's completely drugged and controlled state close to her death:

I wonder when it's Rihanna's turn.

Sun newspaper belongs to Murdoch, illuminati's mouthpiece. You know the owner of fox network, fox studio, fox news channel, new york post yada yada. Britney is ready to be disposed then. On to the next one then.

Poor Britney. I feel so sad for her. Defo her life is extremely hellish. Maybe that Jason Trawick is her handler.

The poor woman is held to a contract for a certain amount of albums and songs by an industry that cares about nothing except the bottom line. Her record company and producers couldn't give a crap about her physical and mental health unless like her last breakdown she is unable to perform. I don't believe that it's mind control as a lot of people here do but I do believe she is under control from a far more mundane though just as cruel method…fear. She'll of been threatened with lawuits and losing her roylties, the people in charge would of probably used her child as leverage to force her into a regime of god knows how much medication, taken any creative control from her and forced her into the position she's in now despite the fact she's clearly mentally unfit for any kind of performance. Also I doubt she'll be… Read more »

brick by brick. things are falling into place. i hope more people are getting to see the house of evil that VC has been talking about.

You might be right on… Think back to the night she was taken to Cedar's by ambulance, she locked herself and her youngest son in the bathroom refusing to let anyone but herself touch her kids… There were even reports that she had a gun trying to get them to hand over her oldest son…. Its just so sad, she was so close….

At least the mind-control hasn't yet over ridden her maternal instincts … Yet.

I hate the Government.

they aren't doing anything to Btiney that they aren't doing to this entire freaking country. Wake up. We are all being programmed and handeled everyday. Thats why people are so compelled to do things that they know makes them miserable on a daily basis. And we handle all the stress by getting doped up just like britney. Then we are ready to go back to work, or back into the system. The system of toiling our lives away working to buy things we dont want or need and put money into the pockets of some rich ass who is poisoning our mind, body, and souls.That is why there is a pharmacy on every street corner. Somebody is taking all those drugs. Oh, and if you actually dont take drugs to make it through todays crazy world then they'll get you through the food and water. We all know we will… Read more »

Hey sweetie, lighten up, dang.

Well who can blame her? Whatever it is that carries Britney's name makes real good money. I've been a fan of hers since I was a child but as I grew old she started to become less important in my life. Then when everyone was talking about a comeback, after she had that break down in 2007, I noticed it from the start. She's not into it anymore. Everyone can tell she wants to stop this, she wants to be a full time mom, she said it a thousand times – that she would give up her career to take care of her children. I never thought she was a bad mom, she was just going through a bad time in her life. And for God's sake, doesn't anyone notice she's so lost and lonely? I've never seen someone as lonely as she is. I mean, when she released that… Read more »

"It's like theyre airbrushing her whole life" – ask anybody who works in the entertainment industry and knows how these managers/agents work their is too much damn truth in that statement right there.

That's been going on in Hollywood since the twenties. The difference being that before part of the airbrushing was an attempt to protect the artist, whereas now it seems it's to use up the artist.

I feel her kids are being used as a bait for her. You know how powerful her handlers are. Maybe they are using the kids (maybe threatening Brit that they will kill the kids maybe) to force her to continue her puppetry. This is freakin' bad. I seriously think we should avoid pop music, or turn off your TV as much as we can. Stop patronizing these artists. Maybe this way the handlers will realize that their efforts for control will be as futile. We can't do anything about Brit's situation because it's like climbing an endless wall before the situation change.

I hang out on a fansite of hers since many years back, and it is being said that they've threatened her to never see her children again if she doesn't obey. 🙁

where are her parents? PLEASE! WHERE ARE HER PARENTS?

"Handlers" are the only parents she knows.

Britney does not have the same energy she had when she was a teenager, 10 years ago. Why? I'm not sure, but I definitely to not think it is mind control. I don't think mind control exists. Britney never had control over her career and she is forced to release more music because of the contract she signed with her label. But that does not mean that she has no control over her own mind. Britney had a breakdown a few years ago and probably still struggles with some emotional problems of some sort.. Again, it doesn't mean she's under mind control. Britney is going to be 30 years old soon and is probably not into being a star that much anymore? She most likely knows people in general don't like her voice/lypsynching anyway. At this point, as an adult, it must be slightly embarrassing for her to try to… Read more »

i do think something is wrong seriously with the whole britney spears picture but i will agree with u that i am 28 and i will tell the truth i do not have as much energy as i did at 18 im sorry i just feel bloody knackered all the time and if i was out all night dancing in clubs aged 18 i will tell u for sure theres no bloody way i could now……so some of britneys lacklustre could be just that shes older now


the rest im sure shes being manipulated and controlled

how can u not believe in mind control when it is documented as fact and even in hospitals regular hospitals here in UK they used to do mind control experiments

VC has an article just up taken from newspaper that talks about it

@ thursday That Celia article… that is simply an example of torture, in my opinion. Not real mind control, I have yet to see REAL evidence of true mind control. I refuse to believe that our species is actually mind-controllable. You cannot mind control another person! You can maybe drug them, electrocute them, etc, etc, etc but you will not control. At the end of the day, we are all responsible for our own behavior, we all choose our own thoughts and values, NOBODY controls that for us. Some people are more easily influenced than others, but that doesn't mean that they're being mind controlled. Some people are a little bit NATURALLY zombie-like for whatever natural reason (bad health, drunkness, ETC). It doesn't mean those people are not mind controlled. Britney seems like a puppet, because she is a manufactured artist, she has no incredible amazing outstanding talent and always… Read more »

I'm sorry "zombinesshappens", but you are talking out of your ass on this one. I guess one can speculate on whether or not Britney is under mind control, but denying that mind control exists is simply untrue and a result of ignorance. There are TONS of documents and video footage proving that mind control experiments have been conducted (and still are) by various governments and organizations.

I suggest you research "Dr. Mengele", "MK-Ultra" and "Ewan Camron" for starters. VC just posted a great video that covers important elements of mind control… .

who best to get it from but the mass media themselves, i think they picked up on VC's article and ran with it and did a follow up. Guys trust me visit wikipedia now an again an you'll learn what VC haz been telling us. Nuff love

what do you mean?
