The road is a short one and at this point it is boringly familiar: apparently sweet young girl becomes a signing phenomenon, it goes to her head, she starts doing things she wouldn't have done pre-fame, starts using drugs, likes sex a bit too much, rehabs, gets pregnant, rehabs a few more times, etc. Soon she's every bit as ruined as she is rich. Today she's Britney Spears but as news of the 15 year old Miley Cyrus's semi-nude photo shoot came out people are wondering if Miley may not be getting ready to follow in Spears' footsteps.
I hope not.
But that picture is not telling a very encouring story.
