Britney Spears lies to Matt Lauer

In an interview with Matt Lauer to air on Thursday, Britney Spears denies rumors she has Kevin Federline living in the basement and insists she’s a good mom.

In the interview with Lauer, Spears defended her parenting skills following the outrage sparked earlier this year when photographers snapped her driving down the Pacific Coast Highway with baby Sean on her lap. “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,” the Louisiana native said. “I know I’m a good mom,” she added.

I’m pretty sure Britney’s dad didn’t sit her on his lap when she was 5 months old and let her drive the car. They can barely hold their own head up at that age, let alone have the motor skills to operate an automotive vehicle. 5 years old I can understand, but not 5 months. Either Britney Spears is a lying whore or her dad has somehow topped her as the worst parent in America. Although judging from the picture I’m going to assume Sean Preston was just using the powers of Satan to control her mind.

    I can’t stand her. She just goes on and on and on with her excuses about why she does what she does. I agree with everyone who said that she just doesn’t learn from her mistakes. As for the asshole who commented about the forward-facing carseat being ‘recommended’ and not ‘the law’ and therefore, ‘okay’, well, that’s just ‘stupid’. There are LOTS of things in life that are not against the law but we don’t do them anyway. Shit, her mom raised two kids… well, sorta… and for a long time was one of the only people allowed near the baby, and you mean to tell me that her mom couldn’t help her out here?

    FUCK. I’m from Louisiana. I really resent the implication that we’re all like that just because she is; you know most people read it that way. There are a lot of LA people here who are smart, funny, have commom sense, and don’t act like white trash. She gives us all a bad name.

    Now, if you two northern Louisiana bitches ever make it down to Lake New Orleans, lemme know. We can go tubing through the ninth ward.

  8. TrannyGranny

    People of Louisiana;

    Kill her now, before the stereotype, “bout ya’ll” gets any worse. Tell the Feds a hurricane did it, they’ll even through some cash your way.

  9. oshkoshb-goshdammgosh

    LickyLicky, you are so right, gurl. Not all us Louisiana peoples are dumb or sexy as Britney. Plenty us went to scool at some time and most of us relly do know how to read. And we don’t all eat crawfish and dance to zydeco music and get drunk on hurricanes (I mean the drinkin kind not the fancy air and wind naygger-killin kind. So yall ned to quit stereatypin everybody and remembner that Louisiana girls give the best oral.

  10. angel_dust

    Being from Louisiana I don’t know which LA born celeb I hate more: Britney Spears, Ali Landry, or Ellen DeGeneres. I promise that there is more to Louisiana than this white trash, and please don’t judge us b/c of their actions. I personally am disgusted of all of them.

  11. oshkoshb-goshdammgosh

    Geaux Tigers!!!

  12. angel_dust

    I never realized how many people on here were from Lu-z-ana. I feel like one big family (degenerates, sluts, and whores) Yep! It’s family alright.

  13. oshkoshb-goshdammgosh

    What cajuns lack in class we make up for in sluts. Who wins now, Yankee fags?!

  14. HughJorganthethird

    Country eh Brit? well I live among the Amish (don’t ask) and even THEY know how to wear shoes in public bathrooms, install a car seat properly and not drop thier fucking kids instead of thier drink (of milk). Country’s no excuse for stupidity.

  15. HughJorganthethird

    Live long and prosper SPF you freaky little bastard.

  16. PelvicBoogie

    What do you say at a fine dining establishment in Luziana? Pass the spam.

    No seriously, I loved LA. Some backwoods shit going on there, and I got lost in it, but I ate some of the best food in the world there as well. Grew up with a cajun too. Good guy to have backing you up.

    Lousiana’s got their fair share of black sheep and ne’er-do-wells, just like the rest of the south, but at least they’re not Arkansas. Nobody can ever take that away.

    Besides, it doesn’t pay to screw with people who can feed you to gators or a 500lb. snapping turtle.

  17. tourettesguyswifeSHIRLENA

    way to represent the south britney. next thing you know she’ll be giving sean preston whiskey out of the bottle because her daddy gave it to her… in many ways.
    shout out to mark massie..

  18. PelvicBoogie

    Oh yeah, that’s another childhood memory. Whiskey, honey and lemon for my throat when I was sick. Also used for teething.

  19. ellaminnowpea

    @51 – there’s no hate for Matt Lauer….we were about to join the “Free Matt” campaign just before we found out that Katie was leaving for sure.
    Katie is a legend in her own mind–she needs to go to CBS and follow in the foot steps of Bryant Gumbel…go to the light Katie…go to the light….
    Now, after 15 years, we are finally able to watch the Today show again….

  20. HollyJ

    OK, let’s be clear. There’s New Orleans…and then there’s the rest of Louisiana. It’s a fact. I lived right near there (Southern native) and spent a lot of time in N.O. growing up. New Orleans is worldly, interesting, and moderately cultural (though it’s been overly commerciallized). Most of the rest of Louisiana is the exact same shit as rural AL, MS, and TX. I can honestly say, after spending the first 25 yrs of my life down in the S.E., that the world (and esp the USA) would be a much better place if the next hurricane took out all four of those states and everyone in it. ..Oh, and you can throw in GA, too, except for Hotlanta. (Well, that shoulda pissed off everyone good and proper)

    PS I love you long time TsarinaAmanda

    Losing your footing and falling while holding your kid (unless you’re shnockered), that’s one thing. I’m giving her the benefit of the doubt because when I was a baby, my mother was holding me and tripped on a flight of stairs. Otherwise, she was a saint.

    But letting your baby sit on your lap while driving? Grade A Idiot.

    Being “country” doesn’t trump being a “law-abiding citizen”. I might start doing stupid stuff and pass it off as being “middle-class”.

  22. nicholelibra

    Her dad’s a coke head! (Before Lohan’s Dad was in the papers it was her father who was screwing girls and doing blow at all hours of the night) WTF does he know?

  23. LickyLicky

    Hey, Holly, Tangi isn’t bad. Moving there as`soon as I have more than sheetrock and dirt in my new house.

    I agree, for the most part. What with the news that NO is lower than we thought, is sinking faster than we thought, and is obviously dumber than we thought, I say, “Thanks for the memories and goodbye”, but that’s just me.

    You should find this funny if you live(d) anywhere near ‘da parish’:

    Sean Preston looks like he is getting EXTREMELY tired of being dragged all over hell and back. Let him drive his own golf cart, Brit-Brit.

  26. oshkoshb-goshdammgosh

    I guess you guys haven’t heard but Monroe, LA, is a bustling metropolis full of diverse cultural stimulation and a deep affection for the arts and higher learning. I mean, we have a Chili’s right next to the mall. Chili’s!
    I lied. It’s a Bennigan’s.

  27. Sdvora

    Kudos on finally bringing up the fact that SP looks like Damien. That’s one odd looking kid. He looks like he’s squirreling Cheetos away in his cheeks to have something to eat during the quick, inmminent slide into poverty and obscurity.

  28. baharanb

    If I was stuck with a whore of a mother like Britney Spears and a crackphine loser like Kevin Federline for parents…I would wish death upon the world too. Atleast, from what I get of his face on the picture, Sean Preston’s real father (Satan) is a better father than that reject Kevin Federline. Oh, and whoever the fuck would reproduce with that waste of space should have their head on a damn stick.

  29. Faith

    What does that mean, “we’re country??” It sounds demeaning. As if people who do live in the country don’t follow laws or make proper judgment.

  30. christee

    angel, oshkosh, you two scoobalificous bitches! i’m right outside of ruston…a whole 15 minutes ay-way. which is not the point.

    if she really wants the world to believe she’s “just country,” she needs to start dipping, pouf her bangs (you all know what i’m talking about…), trade in all her “city” cars for a rust-bucket f-150, and fuck a donkey. in her barn. right before she fucks 6 of her cousins, b/c everyone knows, donkeys hate sloppy seconds.

  31. I’m from Louisiana, and my Daddy let me sit on his lap and hold the steering wheel at a very young age. As for her tripping with the baby, and him falling out his high chair–accidents happen to everyone. Britney Spears’s little mishaps are just heavily documented because of her popularity.It is unfair to call her a bad parent just because everyone knows every time her kid goes to the ER. I had plenty trips, and I sat on my dad’s lap and no child welfare officials came to my house. Leave the girl alone about her parenting skills.

  32. cm007

    holy crap – where to begin? That “We’re Country” thing is the best. SO, since the 70′s no updates have been sent to “country” people. So sad, I grew up with a drunk grandpa who would let me steer while he needed to take a quick run to the liquor store while babysitting me. I will give him this credit – at least I was driving sober. I think that’s what Britney really means – she was drunk, SPF was sober, so he was steering! She is rancid white trash.

  33. noah&rydersmom

    OK well I guess that being “country” makes you ABOVE THE LAW. PCH and a kid on your lap. Yep that is so wise. Take the O,R,Y out of country and that is what she is. A stupid one at that.

  34. maryshome8

    The interview revealed one very important aspect regarding Britney: She has no clue on what kind of public image she has right now. That is what living behind a wall will cause.
    She says she has been labeled as a bad mother by the media, however, can anyone think of another celebrity that was accused of bad parenting and was visited by social services? I can’t.
    Britney blew off the question about her child falling from his high chair as if it wasn’t a big deal and as if the doctor blew it out of context…THE DOCTOR PROBABLY QUESTIONED THE FACT THAT IT HAD HAPPENED A WEEK EARLIER AND THE BABY CLEARLY HAD A CONCUSSION. Any one of us would have had CPS called on us…why not her? Should we just assume she knows what she is doing and taking care of her baby?
    I feel so sorry for the spawn of those two…good thing she is rich, those kids will need alot of therapy. She needs another baby like she needs cancer.

  35. maryshome8

    Bluebella,
    As a mother, you don’t take the baby to the ER A FULL WEEK after a major fall when they are only 5 months old. Do you know how high a high-chair is? It’s almost 3 times their height…so if you were 5’0 and fell 15 feet and landed on your head…would you go to the ER? Probably so. Britney is being CORRECTLY attacked. She may be from Louisiana, but she isn’t in a bubble…she treated it as if she didn’t know any better. Laws have changed since she was a child and the law says babies go in a car seat. I LOVE MY CHILD and there is no way I would drive around the block without my daughter being in a car seat…evidently she doesn’t care about hers.

  36. neva

    Where is a publicist for this poor girl?? She needs to get a hold of herself, she has enough money to find privacy somewhere..please. And if she has any concern about looking like redneck trash, she should start by at least spitting out her gum for an interview….classy.

    To all you foolish people.
    You guys are pathetic first of all! All you people bashing britney and saying the things that you say about her are just sickening!

    2. Whoever said that babies dont hold their heads up at 5 months must have a SLOW BABY! because my baby was almost sitting up all by herself at 5 months!!!

    Come one, who can feel sorry for her? I am curious to know who the idiot was that decided that this white trash dunce was worth promoting. Wasn’t there some other fresh faced Mouse ears wearing kid that probaby deserved fame more since clearly having any vocal range or ability wasn’t really important. And if you look at her, her fatness only highlights her troll like body. I am also curious as to why no one has jumped her ass for even having an infant in the back of an open convertible. Has anyone rode in the back of a convertible? Its no joy ride to be on an open highway with the wind whipping your ass. Let her drink all the Fattening Frappachinos she wants and give her her “privacy” like for good. Jusin T has to be thanking his luck stars he made it out alive.

    I registered just to comment on this…go me! I live in Arkansas. I live in a trailer. I even have a boat outside my home with no motor, and a Ford Explorer with no air conditioning. I suppose that qualifies me as country also. Mysteriously enough, however, none of my children have ever fallen from a high chair, none of them have ever been on my lap while a vehicle was in motion, and I’ve never tripped and almost fallen with one in my arms. I’ve also never appeared on television with severely matted hair, chomping on gum like I’ve been on a week- long meth binge. All stupidity can’t be blamed on what part of the country you’re from people, don’t let her fool you. Her husband doesn’t have anything to do with it either. She likes it or she wouldn’t be in the middle of all of it. She chose that life and she likes being a victim. She can flash that “puppy dog face” or eyes, or whatever Lauer said, but she’s just a nut. Celebrities know what they’re getting into. It’s been this way for years. Publicity’s just part of the money machine. Cha-ching….score another one for the uber skanks…I’m kinda partial to them anyway.

  41. Whatever

    Get off the Britney thing.It’s getting really old.

  42. Whatever

    All the celebrities are selfish and like attention that is why they chose the lifestyle.If you don’t give them attention then you don’t have to deal with their wackiness-that hurts them more than anything.

  43. loagun

    1. Britney jumped in the front seat and drove away from a storm of photographers.
    2. The baby fell from its high chair while in the care of the nanny who was later fired.
    3. It is not against the law in California to drive with your baby seat facing frontwards.
    4. Who doesnt stumble? I can even admit I have stumbled while holding my nephew. She didn’t ‘trip’ because that would entail falling over.

  44. Arctain

    You people scare me.

    You worry about the baby being incorrectly placed in a car seat… Big deal. A car seat increases the chances that your baby will survive a bad wreak by 71%. Good… be smart and use one. But because you do-gooders out there want EVERYONE to be as anally-fixated as you are, you get a law passed. Whether Britney is a bad mother is not going to be resolved by photographers or by some gossip-tainment hosted by Matt Lauer. And it is surely not going to be resolved by you. You can debate it, but most of you seem to fall into the PR trap that was this interview

    You worry about the baby being dropped. First off, it wasn’t dropped. It had, what appeared to be, it’s neck almost snapped off, but it wasn’t dropped. I bet – no, I guarantee – that every single one of you out there had some mishap happen to you while you were IN YOUR MOTHERS ARMS. Ask your parents. Crap Happens. No one is perfect. Of course, the debate on whether it was smart to walk around with a baby on your hip, wearing high heels, and being pressed by photographers, should continue, but a mishap (or multiple mishaps) doesn

  46. Why Do You Care?

    I think Britney Spears is a great mother underneath everything. She is going through a really hard time right now and any woman would be an emotional wreck if they were going through what she is going through. I think people are being rough on Kevin too. He is just a typical man. I think the paparazzi needs to give them a break and let them be parents to their child and the one to come.

  47. Why Do You Care?

    You guys are the meanest people I have ever seen! You guys are all bashing Britney like there is no tomoroww! Honestly..Think about how you would feel if all this was being said about you! You would feel like crap! All I gotta say is read # 138 and read it carefully…and take it to heart! Everyone makes mistakes and Britney is going through a tough time! So all of you get a life and stop bashing her!!!! You guys are all jerks!!!! Britney is a first time mother and all of you that are first time mothers know how hard it is!!! So just leave her,her baby, and her husband alone and focus on your own life for a change! I’m out!
