Liza Minnelli on Britney Spears: She’s Got a Disease


Liza Minnelli talked to the St. Petersburg Times on Tuesday about hip replacement, drag queens, being famous…and Britney Spears:

Minnelli_2“I just feel horrible for her. You know, she’s got a disease. And when you have a disease, you cannot help it. So it’s not your fault, but you’re responsible for it. I just feel so bad for her because I don’t think anybody really understands what’s going on. The way the press is now, she’s getting so much attention. Somebody said to me the other day, ‘God, you have to go to jail to get a good review.’ (guffaws) It’s an interesting period. They used to have clauses and contracts where you can’t get bad publicity or you’d get fired. But now bad publicity is good publicity. I just keep working and don’t think about it much.”
