As stupid as they come?

Obviously nobody is going to mistake Britney Spears for a highly educated individual but that is not her role. You would think she could hire someone with some smarts to help her figure out what to say when required to comment on one thing or another. Caught mistreating her young infant, her first instinct was to blame someone else.

Now, after reflection, she has refined her story, claiming she doesn't want to become the next Princess Diana. It is hard to understand what that means; Princess Diana was killed because of riding in a vehicle with a driver who was highly inebriated. Spears can avoid that fate by the simple expedient of making sure whoever is driving her around is sober and, when you think about it, that doesn't seem like too much to ask.

But of course Spears is really trying to blame the paparazzi; she apparently can't understand the riding around with a drunken driver can result in a fatal accident while having photographers around does not.

But if the good Spears gains from the paparazzi (free publicity) is not worth the hassle, she can move somewhere when they don't hang out and then she can go about her business as she wants. Maybe she won't get as many cover stories in People magazine but that is the choice she has to make.
