This Is Kenny Britt With Britney Spears Sitting On Top Of Him, On Stage
OK, you know Titans receiver Kenny Britt had a rough offseason, thanks to some dumb decisions on his part. You know that if he keeps getting arrested, he'll put his otherwise-promising career in jeopardy. And given how many of the wrong kind of headlines Britt's made this offseason, we're not even sure how to characterize this latest development: photos of him onstage at a Britney Spears concert, with Spears sitting on top of him. Maybe it's best to let the picture above speak for itself.
You, sitting under Britney Spears with her legs wrapped around you...and they call that news.* The photo you see above looks so crazy, one might even swear it's a Photoshop job - but photographer Ray Zate, who snapped the shot, swears by its authenticity. (Plus, you can see a guy who's clearly Britt on the big screen behind the action, and we imagine that would be harder to fake.) Oh, and that there's also this photo. And the many testimonials of those who didn't get pictures. Sure seems like the real deal.
And with that...time to gett buzzkill-y/serious-ish about it all. Britt's troubles brought me no joy. I was at Rutgers for all of Britt's time there, and he was a great college player. In addition to the expected receiving highlights, Britt wasn't afraid to get (very) physical as a blocker - enough that he even got put on defense one time. As far as off-the-field stuff, we knew he wasn't a perfect angel, but the extent of the trouble we'd heard about was a one-game suspension for a game against a gimme opponent - i.e. one meant to send a message above all else.
So when news of arrests started piling up this offseason, it honestly just got a little depressing after a while. Britt was a legitimate first-round talent, and he's shown that on and off in the NFL. Those who watched him in college (not to mention Titans fans) hope he can get it together and make the most of his substantial talent, because if he didn't, that would just be sad - and it is sad, every time it seems there's a danger of that happening. Yeah, the Britney photo is hilarious...I just hope it's not one more step toward Britt becoming a joke.
*Anyone who knows where that reference comes from gets the satisfaction of knowledge.
