Britney Spears gets her own motorcade, airspace

By: The Superficial / January 31, 2008

While no one is surprised that Britney Spears made another trip to the psych ward, what is surprising is that the LAPD and FAA already had previously arranged plans to facilitate Britney’s magical journey to cuckoo town. Ever since her last meltdown, plans were laid to expedite an inevitable return to the hospital. (You’re welcome, California taxpayers!) Britney’s lack of sleep was the trigger for today’s excursion, according to People:

“No one thought this would happen this soon, but it was clear if she stayed up for more than three days she’d have to get sent, since that could cause real damage. The last time she slept was Saturday.”
Adds the source: “The motorcade and everything was planned, it was already in the works to have them block off the road and airspace. It worked out perfectly.”

If I was a pilot flying overhead and found out I had to clear the airspace for Britney Spears, the shit would hit the fan, my friend. I’d get on the intercom and inform the passengers that this is their captain speaking and we’re about to make an unscheduled landing into Britney Spears pool. And by landing I mean crash. After a thunderous round of applause, I’d guzzle the rest of my Big Gulp full of whiskey (Thank you, stewardess) then lock the plane into a nosedive. I don’t want to say I’m a hero, but Batman better have an extra set of balls in his utility belt to pull off moves like these.

UPDATE: Video of the motorcade after the jump. And yeah, it’s every bit as ridiculous as it sounds.
