After taking a beating in the press, Britney Spears decided to sit down with Matt Lauer -- at her home -- to talk about motherhood, her marriage and the manny.
In an interview that's set to air Thursday on Today and Dateline, Miss Brit says she's a "good mom," her marriage to Kevin Spenderline is "awesome" and she's not hooking up with her manny.
Here are some highlights:
On Kevin: "He helps me. He has to. I'm [an] emotional wreck right now."
On people rooting against her marriage: "If they are that’s sad. I think everybody should be ‘pro love.’"
On the paparazzi: “They’ve crossed the line a little bit… They like to have the person they pick on, I feel like I’m a target.”
On the "baby on the lap" driving incident: "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… I know I'm a good mom."
At the end of the interview, Britney makes a plea to the 'razzi: "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.”
Should the paparazzi and the media leave Britney alone? Do you agree with her and think she's good mom? Do you hate when celebrities give national interviews and ask to be left alone? Talk back below.
