The internet has become a place for quick soundbites or miniblogs, with internet users having the attention spans of toddlers. But some longform journalism persists, and today I’m sharing a few of my favorite longreads with you.

Miss American Dream

When I was in high school, I really enjoyed Britney Spears’ music. It was fun and peppy and it made me happy. As I’ve gotten older, I find the cult of Britney to be intensely fascinating. Her life is almost a case study of how fame can ravage a person. But someone she’s found a way to still hold on to something resembling a real life.

I had heard of Dave Chappelle in passing a few times, but not much more than his name. This article describes his rise to fame and how he just walked away from it. Incredible article about not only his life, his motivations, and his current whereabouts, but about race and comedy.

The Down and Dirty History of TMZ

I’m sure most everyone here has heard of TMZ and knows what it is, but this was a detailed look at the origins and inner workings of the new style of gossip rag in the Internet Age.
