Is Britney's Excuse Valid?

Is Britney's Excuse Valid?

Britney and Kevin's lawyers met in court yet again this morning, this time to discuss Britney's drug testing. Apparently she's missed 8 of her last 14 random drug tests because she couldn't respond to the 8:30 am phone calls within the required hour. Britney's lawyer alleges that she shouldn't be expected to be awake that early since she's a pop star with a No. 1 album. Unfortunately, Brit's lawyer didn't get the memo that her album is number 2. What do you think — is being a pop star a valid excuse to sleep in?

Yeah cause I know that if I was in that situation, and I used that as my reason for missing the tests they'd really let me off :OY:

NO! When has anything she's done lately been valid?

Britney knows that a missed drug test=a failed drugs test in the courts eyes. Even if she's not used to being up at 8:30, if she was really serious about getting her boys back and had no reason to miss the tests(ie would fail anyway), then getting up earlier for a few weeks to prove that she was sober, clean & responsible wouldn't be that big of a deal.

no excuse for her behavior. she should be doing everything AND anything to ge tthose kids back. once, again, maybe the boys are better off away from her.

It's ridiculous to compare her to us "civilians" in terms of sleeping in with kids. I have a kid and yes, I always got up (except on weekends when my husband did -- he's a a morning person and I'm not). C'mon, she can have a nanny play with the kids until she gets up. That doesn't make her a bad mother. What makes her a miserable mother and a complete fucktard is the fact that she doesn't make it to those tests and rides around aimlessly looking for paparazzi. For fuck's sake....she needs to get some HELP -- will no one in her life, family, try to help her?

Well, an hour seems a little strict to me considering she doesn't live an ordinary life. I think 24 hours is more than reasonable, however. But I do feel like her excuses sound like just that, EXCUSES. It's sad.

Padraigin, I believe the keyword that BRANDYNICOLE730 used was <strong>"WORK"</strong>...when is the last time Spears actually <strong>"WORKED"</strong> to where she would be so exhausted to be "dead to the world"...I'm guessing YEARS!!!!

<cite>Personally, I work until 11 pm every night. At 8:30am I am dead to the world! Not everyone has the same schedule!</cite>And I worked until 2 am a few times this week AND got up for my day job. It's what adults do, especially if they have children.

This is just...its awful. I keep waiting for her to hit rock bottom and its not happening. I hope it happens soon.Can you find urine cleaner/drug blockers that work in a few hours? I thought they had to be taken days in advance. I'm gonna look into it because I find the 8:30 a.m. being too early excuse BS. She's not working. She hasn't been photographed at the clubs in the last few days so wtf. Around halloween she went out a few times but even before that, her nights out at clubs and parties were very few. So what the hell is she doing up at all hours of the night that she can't get up at 8:30 a.m.?

Get up for the kids Brit! What kind of mother are you? Who did the feedings in the morning...not you babe. Where is your motherly instinct. Those kids need to have a real mom who cares about them. Not a mom who is parading around in two seated sports cars and shopping for herself everyday. Give me the kids and I'll show you how to take care of them. Selfish and self centered you are...

She should be awake well before 8:30 if shes caring for two babies...which clearly, she is not.
