Britney Spears on Dateline

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!

    God she sucks. You know, I am technically "country" too because I grew up in a rural area in the Midwest, and I HATE how she makes the stereotype of "country" people looking like backwards hicks come true. What happened to her? She never EVER used to be this bad. And using that as an excuse to drive with her kid on her lap? I thought it was because the paparazzi were chasing her? Whatever it was, stop excusing your bad parenting and stupid behavior and the fact that you’re in an "awesome" marriage to a two-bit, deadbeat, wanna-be but never will be rapper, piece of trash who is using you and using up all your money for pipe dreams and partying.You’re an insult to "country" people Britney. And this "country" person doesn’t know ANYONE that drives with their babies in their laps.

    Girl, whoever did your makeup….clumped your mascara to all hell. But, you probally like it like that. Why do you talk like you are an idiot? Well, I know you are…but does it have to be so obvious? We all know you are lying about EVERYTHING that you speak about. and by the way you look like crap!

    oh come on! Says:

    SHE’S PATHETIC AND TRASHY. This is NOT the way to get sympathy–by sticking with that ******* husband and trying to rationalize her lousy parenting. GO AWAY.

    I think she would have done better to just NOT RESPOND. She made herself look even worse if that is possible. Britney, I can hear your blood pressure and gestational diabetes from here. Please feed yourself better girl.

    Shut up Britney. Why is she still popular anyways? First of all, when you sat in daddy’s lap, I am sure you were old enough to at least wipe your own butt. Second, don’t bring us "country" people into your mess. Just admit that you made a bad judgement call. "We’re country", please. I find that offensive

    ew Says:

    Ugh. What a stupid ho-bag. Bleached cheap hair extensions, denim cutoffs, chubby legs–couldn’t she have dressed up a LITTLE? She’s too dumb to even bother with anymore. She’s getting what she deserves for staying with that *****.

    RINGGOLD Says:

    LEAVE HER THE HELL ALONE!! She is only human much like u people who are judging her!! Yeah she doesnt look like she did before but hey SHES FREAKIN PREGNANT!!!! She is popular because she is BRITNEY SPEARS. Just cuz shes pregnant doesnt make her invisible!! LEAVE THE GIRL ALONE!!!!! As far as country goes….. if u were really country as u say u all are… u would be understanding not ripping her apart!!!

    briseis Says:

    WHY OH WHY is she still popular? She hasn’t had a hit record in a ages, she’s still married to that vile wannabe rapper — why do paps still bother with her? Are people still THAT interested in her? Or maybe it’s just like rubbernecking a traffic accident — you can’t help but slow down and gawk. We all are gawking at the accident that is Britney Spears.

    weird.. she’s defending that putz husband who could care less about her and herself for being a idiot and a big liar and what next? We just shut up our opinions and go away, or watch them and hope to fatten their wallets, when they come up with a way to sell stuff? I don’t get it at ALL.

    poorbritbrit Says:

    remember britney stopped her formal schooling in the 8th grade – she isn’t even as bright as a normal "country" girlif she wants to spend her money wisely – get a tutor and learn something – other "stars" with big bank accounts and little education did that

    Hmnmmm, remember sitting on my dad’s lap and driving the car and yeah, I was old than Sean P….but those are great memories.

    # 8 | RINGGOLD ———————————-BEING "HUMAN" IS NOT AN EXCUSE FOR STUPIDITY! Thieves are human, rapists are human, drunk drivers are human right…EVERYBODY just makes mistakes…right??? Give me a break the girl is TRASH and TRASH is what she deserves.SHE LOOKS RETARDED and by saying that I’m probably insulting real down syndrome people!!!

    jerrys Says:

    i’m ok with RINGGOLD. Leave her alone. She’s just a human being. I don’t understand why everybody is looking at her like that. ok, she made mistakes (and will probably do again, because who don’t!!) but is it our right to judge her? i don’t think so. And by the way, i think it should be horrible to live with all these people around you, scruting you, follow you everywhere…maybe you don’t like what she does as an artist, that’s ok… but her personal life is none of our business.

    RINGGOLD Says:

    THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR STUPIDITY!! RIGHT! But thats your opinion if u think she is stupid. Maybe shes happy and likes her life. She chose Kevin and her path of life but LOOK at what shes done PRE-K FED!!!! And you are entitle 100% TO YOUR OPINION ABOUT HER lookin retarded! But look how dumb u sound for even saying that!! BEING HUMAN IS NO EXCUSE FOR STUPIDITY!! YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT!!

    jerrys Says:

    Everybody could be stupid sometimes… even Britney Spears. This is not a reason for not leaving her alone! And I really really really think that she love her son, and that she does her best… even if it’s not enough for you.

    BS is TRASH Says:

    # 17 | RINGGOLD———————Yeah, what did she do?? Strip for money and played the virgin card?? CLASSY! There’s no arguing with a "true" spears fan…is like traying to take food away from the pigs…you shut me up alright! LOL

    fan Says:

Come on Britney stop complaining and tell them F*U*C*K if you wan’t them to leave you alone !

    LOL Says:

    Everybody could be stupid sometimes… even Britney Spears.————————LOL, funny. I thought she was ALWAYS stupid..I guess it was just me, LOL.Where are her handlers anyways? she looks horrid!!

  22. 22
    NUTS! Says:

    Ok…country or not – there’s a HUGE difference between driving on daddy’s lap on a back road somewhere where you MAY pass a car every fifth mile and THE FREAKIN’ LOS ANGELES FREEWAY!! Come on, now…even this stupid country girl knows that!

    suspicious_package Says:

    I was involved with a real jerk who treated me like crap many years ago. I overheard someone say "well, if she doesn’t have any respect for herself, then I have no respect for her." Best thing I’ve ever overheard. I left him and respect myself to this day. Obviously, no one around Britney is honest enough with her to tell her the truth. She looks horrible, and it can only be an outward manifestation of how she feels inside. So there.

    Violette Says:

    She really dug herself a hole there! what a thing to say, I doubt that she was a baby when she drove with her dad.
