Britney Spears: Poet, thespian

In a move that further blurs the line between reality and the unicorn stable that is Britney Spears’ brain cavity, the pop singer has written a bitter poem about her mother, Lynne, then hand-delivered it, according to Star. (We know, we know, it’s Star, but MSNBC is reporting it, too, and if MSNBC is doing it, why can’t we?)

The poem and some legal papers were delivered to the set of sister Jamie Lynn’s TV show Zoey 101.

“Britney said, 'Here Momma, I just wanted to see your face,’ ” a source told Star. “Then she got into her car and drove off. Lynne went into the trailer and broke down in tears.”

No info is available on the content of the poem; we imagine we’ll have to wait until the next issue of the Paris Review to find out.

In other Brit-news, the singer apologized on her Web site for a recent umbrella attack against the paparazzi. Let’s just go ahead and get the “sic” out of the way now:

“I was preparing my character for a roll in a movie where the husband never plays his part so they switch places accidentally. I take all my rolls very seriously and got a little carried away. Unfortunately I didn’t get the part.”

We imagine it went to Kate Winslet, Hilary Swank or Helen Mirren instead.
