Lynne Spears wants everyone to know she was NOT a stage mother to Britney Spears. Not even a little bit. No, no, Lynne’s hands are clean, according to Lynne. Lynne has a book to promote, as you probably know. She says that even when young Britney was a Mouseketeer, that “Britney pushed me.”
Wow. How unusual that a child would make demands of a parent. Sadly, Lynne appears to have caved to Britney at every turn. Quoth Lynne:
It’s been a wild ride for everybody. … She’s out there, she’s with the crowds and with her peer groups, and she’s doing things. … I have sat for hours, thinking about everything that’s happened.”
Sitting. Not doing anything about it, but thinking about it. Helpful! Lynne sat by while Britney shaved her head and went batshit crazy. Fortunately for Britney, her dad has some balls. Jamie Spears DID something while Lynne was sitting and thinking. Jamie’s intervention may have saved Britney’s sanity and her life. She’s still on the road to recovery, but Snarkista is thrilled for Britney’s VMA victories. They surely must have helped her self-esteem.
Here’s Lynne’s interview with Meredith Viera.
