Technically, Taylor peaked with 1989 and while Reputation didn't match 1989's sales, it was a big hit and probably the peak of her career-wise had she continued that path of apolitical stuff.Taylor Swift is one of those singers who has clung onto stardom far longer than she should have. She should have found some wealthy businessman/producer/professional lech and spend the rest of her life selling "Goop"-type products. Instead, she's become a living drama factory willing to suck the proverbial doorknob off of Hollywood in order to move on into acting. I cannot wait until no one takes her seriously.
Brittany rebounded quiet well. Granted, the backlash towards the way the media turned on her caused them to go over the top hailing the record she did after her breakdown as "great" even though it was pretty generic and forgettable. But Brittany DID seize on the media's blatant attempt to kiss her ass to apologize for treating her like shit during her dark days, to basically get the fuck out of dodge and cede the limelight to Lady Gaga and company. She's in a better place, though I have to think that she's happy she made it out of that period of her life with her life and her reputation pretty much salvaged to the point that she s till has fans and a following and that even her haters have started coming around to her music after years of hating her.Britney Spears. Her hair may have grown back, but she didn't really recover from her breakdown in '07 otherwise. Plus her family is nuts and super controlling of her.
Madonna. Her kabbalah shit and resistance to aging is all pretty cringe.
Cybill Shepard, as a young starlet, used to bang Black Panthers to prove what a radical she was. This has been mostly erased from public knowledge, but there are still a few references to it in books about the counterculture scene in 1968-72 California.
She was also very open about her being a giant whore in her autobiography and talked about how she had an orgasm during a gyno exam.She also used to attend Roman Polanski's S&M parties, she was one of a number of Hollywood people who were very very concerned that the LAPD would confiscate all of Polanski's film from videotaped sex parties.
Kevin Smith had a legit mental break after Zack & Miri Make A Porno bombed.Now, Kevin Smith is not a lolcow yet but he's definitely bordering the territory and has been ever since he decided to make sequels to Tusk.
