In poor taste, a webpage is offering a Play Station 3 for the user who predicts the date and time of the singer's departure from the world
When is Britney Spears is going to die? That’s the question one website is posing to its users, and they’re offering a Play Station 3 to the person who can guess the day and hour of her ultimate demise.
The internet page When Is Britney Going To Die.com was registered on Jan. 4, and its creators seem to hope that the pop star dies in a hurry. “A couple of years ago she looks stunning and was a wet dream for every man. But for some reason Britney also landed in a self-destruction derby. Guess her final breath and be crowned Mr. Or Mrs. Death. Winner will be rewarded with a PS3,” the homepage reads.
Users not only can guess the date and exact time Spears will pass away, but they can also leave their “pre-condolences.” According to the site, 10,000 predictions have already been made.
What’s their prognosis? Many users are guessing an overdose, suicide or a heart attack. Some of are saying she’ll going to die this month, while others give her until 2010. Among the obituaries you’ll find messages like “Shame on you for throwing your life away” and “Go to hell.”
A similar site was created for British singer Amy Winehouse and had a similar response.
No matter how troubled the pop star, the real shame here is that a contest like this exists at all.
