Fans groaned when Britney Spears went partying just hours after a judge ordered her to shape up or lose the kids.
Now Britney appears to be in crisis mode to rebuild her image – but that plan is drawing scorn, too.
Yesterday the troubled star went shopping on trendy Robertson Blvd. in Los Angeles, where paparazzi are known to stalk stars.
Her oldest son Sean Preston sat on her hip as the pop star shopped, surrounded by at least 50 cameramen. Britney tried to shield Sean Preston from the chaos of the blinding flashbulbs by putting his head down on her shoulder.
At one point during the shopping excursion, Britney put her son’s pacifier in her mouth.
Instead of what may have been innocent quality time with her baby, Internet bloggers are accusing Britney of using her kids to gain sympathy and rebuild her party-girl image.
On Tuesday night, Britney hit Hollywood hotspot Winston’s with several friends. Her partying came just hours after a judge called her “a habitual drug and alcohol user” and ordered her to undergo random testing.
