We talk a lot about Britney Spears. A lot.
Yet the pop star train wreck herself offers relatively few sound bites of late. We're not counting the "singing" on her new album of course.
Wednesday morning, Spears broken her silence on the recent controversy over her parenting skills and her negative public image, talking to metrosexual radio host and American Idol personality Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM show.
"I try to not let it get to me," she said.
As for the drama over her custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline for sons Sean Preston and Jayden James, she said, "People say what they want and do what they do... but it's sad how cruel our world can be."
When asked about recent fling Tony Romo (Ryan Seacrest personally said he saw her give him a lap dance at Les Deux October 26), she replied, "Who?"
Britney Spears calls her new album, which came out this week, Blackout. Which sure is convenient, since that's also what the lush calls Tuesday-Saturday nights.
She had a low-key celebration for the album release Tuesday. "We watched movies," she said. Probably not the Amy Fisher sex tape, although who knows.
As for whose idea it was for her to say "It's Britney, Bitch" in the intro to "Gimme More," Spears said, "the producer told me to say that." Well, there you go.
While Spears surprisingly made it to the interview with Seacrest and was halfway coherent, it wasn't exactly easy to get Britney's ass in gear. Or out of the sack.
At first, her "cousin" Alli Sims phoned in from Spears' Beverly Hills home and said she was trying to wake the train wreck up. Spears had overslept. Her producer pal, Sam Lutfi, was also overheard in the background.
