Paris Hilton defends Britney Spears
Paris Hilton sent out a little bulletin on her MySpace defending Britney Spears’ recent behavior and parenting skills. She writes:
I told Brit I’d write a bulletin on here to try to clear some news to at least the people who are on my list…
Lately, you’ve been seeing pics of me and Britney partying (blah blah) and she knows that some of her fans are very upset about what they call her “behavior” and sadly they’re blaming the issue on her being friends with me. Yeah, me and Brit have become really close in the past few weeks, and we’ve gone out alot in the past few nights, but I never influence anything she does, and neither does anyone else.
Brit is her own person and she deals with her own things everyday. For people to call out her parenting skills on behalf of her partying ethics is appalling. Britney loves her kids to death, and I know for a fact that it truly hurts her when she sees these cruel things being written about her.
She goes home every night to her babies and partying has not come in the way of her parenting.
Anyone who has called her out on this should really be ashamed. There are thousands of mothers out there who like to go out and have a good time. But, you do not see people out there calling them “bad parents” She’s young, and if she wants to go out and have some fun, let her. Just because she does these things does not mean she doesn’t care about her children. For the sake of Britney and her kids, be kind.
I’m not sure if Paris Hilton is the best choice to vouch for a person’s character. It’s like being defended by Saddam Hussein. You’d be better off just inching away and pretending you don’t even know them. Maybe making gestures behind their back while they talk. Like pointing at them with one hand and circling your finger around your ear with the other like they’re crazy. That one’s always a classic.
