Britney 'Boo-Friggin-Who' Spears...
You know there's really nothing on television when LAist watches a pregnant Britney Spears' sit-down with Matt Lauer for Dateline on NBC last night. (Do you need ratings this badly, Matt?)
It was a tiny little pity party for the Malibu princess -- just in front of a nationwide audience. Getting all teary-eyed when talking about how tough her life is with the media hounding her and her hubby Kevin Federline relentlessly... or how her parenting skills are questioned...ok everybody now: awwwww.
If Britney wants the press to back off, maybe she should work on being a iittle less, umm, herself. Show us how you've grown: Start by getting a stylist (stop wearing the hoochie mama outfits -- we really don't want your boobs that badly), wear less (but make sure it's waterproof) mascara, and finally: Don't do interviews chewing huge wads of gum.
Then Britney, maybe we'll start believing in you and your "happy" marriage to K-Fed.
Another Britney note: She followed Madonna into Kabbalah, now it looks like she might follow Brangelina to Nambia to have baby number two. Oye vey.
