Britney Spears: “Ambition Drove Mariah Crazy.”

BRITNEY SPEARS blames MARIAH CAREY’s glitzy lifestyle for the diva’s nervous breakdown – and the teenage pop sensation is determined not to make the same mistake. Britney has lashed out at stars like Mariah for allowing fame to go to their heads, claiming they have lost touch with their normal lives in their desperate pursuit of fame and success at whatever cost. And despite her own gruelling work schedule, the glamorous singer claims she makes a strict distinction between her professional and personal life in order to preserve her own sanity. She says, “I think that sometimes stars start believing they are a goddess or they are this god-like figure. “First of all, I had a really long break before this promotion, because it’s a big thing. Mariah had a really long break, too, but I think that some people make their careers their lives. “You need to separate your career and your life. This is not my life, this doesn’t mean everything to me. “Some stars feel the pressure and it’s all they think about. You can’t do that – that’s what drives them crazy.”
