In light of the prolonged media lambasting of her character, Britney Spears appeared on Ryan Seacrest’s morning radio show today to promote her new album and set the record straight.
The “Gimme More” singer talked about her frustration with public perception, and constant scrutiny. "People say what they want and do what they do. Its sad how people ... how cruel our world can be. But at the end of the day you gotta to know in your heart that you are doing the best that you can."
While 2007 may have been the longest/worst year of Britney Spears’ entire life, that may all be about to change. Today marks the release of “Blackout,” her new album that has critics and fans alike singing her praises.
According to Rolling Stone’s Joe Levy, the new album is “state of the art. One of the problems for Britney right now is the public is more focused on her personal life than her music. This record is an opportunity to change that."
Already on the schedule for a Mother’s Day 2008 release is the new book from Britney Spears’ mom, entitled “Pop Culture Mom: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World.” And from what we’re hearing it just may be worth the read.
Lynne Spears has been contracted by Thomas Nelson Publishers for the project, being described as “a parenting book that’s going to have faith elements to it. It’s Lynne’s personal story of raising high-profile children while coming from a low-profile Louisiana community.”
Britney Spears was spotted out yesterday (October 25) visiting Los Angeles children's shop Swings N' Things.
Wearing a white dress, cowgirl boots and oversized sunglasses, the Gimme More singer headed straight to the office, pointed at a toy she wanted in a brochure, and then headed back to her Hollywood Hills home.
She may be able to work a stage like a seasoned pro (minus the MTV Video Music Awards, of course) but it appears that there are a few things that Britney Spears still needs to learn…namely how to be a good parent.
But it’s all getting resolved, according to reports that she and ex-husband Kevin Federline began parenting classes yesterday. The once-marrieds showed up at the Beverly Hills Hotel to get to work on being a better mommy and daddy.
