UPGRADE/DOWNGRADE: Primetime Celebrity Interventions

|

Britney_Matt2.jpgWhen celebrities sacrifice themselves at the altar of Exclusive Primetime Interviews, it usually means they’ve been taking a bad enough beating in the press that they have no choice but to go on national television and try to convince America that they’re not the freaks we’ve come to think they are. Britney’s tearful carnival of absurdity last night on Matt Lauer is a great example. Sometimes these celebs manage to provide us with enough insight to empathize with their struggles (UPGRADE), while other interviews only confirm their craziness and leave us wondering whether their publicist might need to be put on a suicide-watch (DOWNGRADE). Take a look at these memorable interview pairings, then let us know who comes out clean and who’s dirtier that Sean Preston’s diapers.
