At the Billboard Awards 2016, Britney Spears surprised her fans with her fiery performance on stage. It was a complete change after her breakdown.
It’s been quite a while since we’ve seen the blonde and talented singer light up the stage with fire by her performances. Remember the peppy numbers ‘Baby One More Time’ and ‘Oops! I Did Again’.
Now she’s back in the news after performing at the Billboard music awards 2016. The music awards kicked off with Britney performing on a medley of songs that she sang while she was the reigning pop star.
Things were different for her a couple of years back. We’ve heard several stories of celebrities not able to handle stardom and their careers coming to a gloomy end. Unfortunately Britney became a victim too, succumbing to the pressures of fame, stardom and wealth. In her case, fame struck very early.
After dominating the musical charts for years, we heard stories of the ‘Pop Princess’ going on an angry rampage, destroying a photographer’s car, shaving her head, visits to the drug rehabilitation center and acting unusual. She had failed marriages and lost the custody of her two sons. She was not the same ‘Pop Princess’ we knew. She vanished from the musical scene.
In December 2008, she released her sixth studio album ‘Circus’. From there on she gained stability and took charge of her own life and behaviour. When we pause and reflect on her life, we realize that one needs to have a very strong personality to handle fame. It surely comes with a price.
As human beings can we really handle the personal stories that the paparazzi and the media circulate, in the open ? How much are we ready to give up – our time, values, family to achieve fame ? Can we handle the negative and psychological consequences ? These are questions that would certainly creep into the minds of youngsters who want to travel the road to fame. There’s a lot at stake.
Touch wood, things are now different for the ‘Blonde and perky’ singer. Britney is a changed person and appears to be at a happy place. She’s a doting mother to her two sons. Her persevering nature has to be applauded.
She stands as a source of hope to so many women who are fighting their own inner demons. She was honoured with the biggest award of the night – ‘The Billboard Millennium Award‘ – only two artists have received this award before her.
I think she’s been a strong warrior in dealing with her past demons and now she’s emerged as a strong individual.

Half a decade ago marriage was a bargain between two famlies. Most of the women were married off to a man who was either well off or who could fend for his wife and family. Today the parameters of marriage have changed. Women no longer marry for the sake of economic security. Their expectations from marriage have changed in the course of years because of their changed status.
As women grew independent, their patterns of choosing partners have changed dramatically. Now women choose men who they feel can satiate their emotional as well as physical needs. Intimacy is no longer the physicality that happened between two people under the supervision of elders of the family for the sole purpose of procreation. Intimacy in today’s marriages involve understanding and fulfilling each other’s emotional as well as sexual needs.
So before you decide to hook up see if you know these five things about intimacy.
The recent Bold Care ad breaks some long standing taboos in Indian society about women's sexual pleasure and erectile dysfunction in men.
The co-owner of the new sexual health brand – Bold Care, Ranveer Singh, recently shared that he wants to focus at creating awareness amongst people about men’s sexual health and aims to provide a tangible solution to millions of people across the country. The new Bold Care ad which was dropped last week has taken the internet by storm. Netizens are ogling at the ad and cannot stop talking about it and how?
The Bold Care ad has created a buzz for multiple reasons. One, because of the unexpected collaboration between the A-list Bollywood actor and co-owner of the brand – Ranveer Singh and (wait for it… drumrolls please) the adult film star Johnny Sins.
People were not ready to see Johnny Sins in an Indian commercial ad and had their jaws dropped to the floor when they saw him dressed in a blue kurta and a golden coat and tie acting in a saas-bahu rip off. The internauts have claimed this unusual duo as the biggest crossover ever – bigger than Deadpool and Wolverine coming together! Second, the ad aims to normalise the stigma related to men’s sexual wellbeing and the ease with which it can be addressed.
