Britney Spears on Dateline
"I think everybody should be pro-love," the 24-year-old singer said when asked about the media that appear to be hungry for signs of a split. Telling Lauer that her marriage of almost two years has been "awesome," Spears denied rumors that K-Fed has been banished to sleeping in the basement. "I think 90 percent of the world would agree that the tabloids have gone a little far with me… They’ve crossed the line a little bit," Spears said, referring to photographers who have snapped her on her private property. "They like to have the person they pick on. I feel like I’m a target…. You have babies at home. And… you have a life. And if you don’t, you have to realize that we’re people and that we… just need privacy and we need our respect. And those are things that you have to have as a human being.”
But my favorite line of the interview is when Britney Spears addresses the incident of baby Sean Preston on her lap while driving: "I can’t go anywhere without someone judging me. I did it with my dad. I’d sit on his lap and I drive. We’re country." We’re country, ya’ll!!!!!! Britney‘s interview by Matt Lauer airs this Thursday on The Today Show (7:00 AM/ET) and Dateline (9:00 PM/ET) on NBC. You can watch two of the video previews below. Bigger pictures in the gallery!
