Courtney Love: At Least It Was a Complete Sentence

Courtney Love had this to say to Access Hollywood about the incredible downward spiral that is Britney Spears:

"I know the exactitudes of what's going on, having been there," she told Access Hollywood. "Here is what's gonna happen if she doesn't get help — something very, very bad is gonna happen."

Courtney does a masterful job of demonstrating her psychic abilities (yes, something bad is bound to happen to Britney Spears; some might define losing custody of one's children as "bad"). But exactitude is not a fancy way of saying "exactly." The word means precision, or the quality of being exact. Which sort of makes her misuse of the word ironic, no?
