Britney Talks Panties And Partying
Spears Says 'Thank God' For Victoria's Secret In A Message On Her Web Site
(CBS) Britney Spears is thankful for Victoria's Secret and perhaps enjoying her "newfound freedom" a little too much, she says in a new posting on her Web site.
The pop star, who's received some heat for her nights out with Paris Hilton and her penchant for not wearing underwear, posted a holiday message to her fans and talked a bit about the panty situation.
"It's been so long since I've been out on the town with friends. It's also been two years since I've even celebrated my birthday," said Spears, who celebrated her 25th birthday recently with Hilton at L.A.'s Hyde club
"Every move I make at this point has been magnified more than I expected, and I probably did take my newfound freedom a little too far," she admits.
"Anyway, thank God for Victoria's Secrets' new underwear line! I look forward to a new year, new music and a new me!" she wrote.
"I'm just getting started," she said. "Happy Holidays everyone!"
The New York Post reported yesterday that the Los Angeles Department of Children & Family Services has been trying to set up a meeting with Spears.
"The department has been calling Britney trying to set up a meeting with her, so they can check on (Spears' sons with Kevin Federline, Sean Preston and Jaden James). The calls started after this recent bout of bizarre public behavior," a source told the newspaper.
The Post reports that Spears' family is also worried about her new party lifestyle — and antics with the paparazzi (i.e. being caught in photos minus underwear).
Meanwhile, Spears' ex, Kevin Federline, is busy retooling his image into that of a serious, respectable adult.
A spokesman for Federline's divorce attorney released a statement Wednesday detailing an evening out with the aspiring rapper.
According to the statement, Federline dined out with lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan at a Beverly Hills steakhouse Tuesday — and then had a pleasant chat with the press.
Federline told E! News that he wants the public to know that he is a family man, adding "that is me, that is the truth, that is — in all honesty — that is what it is."
He also said that he sees himself a year from now "making movies" — presumably legitimate feature films — and that he's very happy and moving forward in his career.
