Britney Spears' mom: Oops, my bad
Lynn Spears was shilling her new book on raising Britney and new teen mom Jamie Lynn on Wednesday’s Today show and admitted to lots of woulda, coulda, shouldas. “It’s kind of like Britney was sent out into the world a little bit prematurely,” Lynne said, comparing her lack of supervision of her 15 year old to parents sending their kids to college. “You don’t really know what they’re doing in college ... just as Britney set out two years earlier to be a star.”
As for the fame, “It was more of an excitement at first. It seems like everything’s fabulous: Look at the trips she gets to go on!”
And in other great parenting moments, her daughter Jamie Lynn told her she was pregnant in a note. "I was just truly in shock and then I started to cry. And then she started consoling me at that point," she said.
