Britney: "I Was Like a Bad Kid With ADD"

5/29/2007 1:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears took to her website again today to reach out to her fans -- and to take veiled shots at her former manager, Larry Rudolph.

The post tried to explain some of what has been going on lately with Ms. Spears, including rehab, saying, "Recently, I was sent to a very humbling place called rehab. I truly hit rock bottom. Till this day I don't think that it was alcohol or depression. I was like a bad kid running around with ADD." No argument there.

Spears says in the letter that she doesn't want to "place blame on anyone," but then she does, saying at one point, "I had a manager from a long time ago come in and try to direct me and my life after I got my divorce." She also went on to say, "I feel like some of the people in my life made more of some issues than was necessary. I also feel like they knew I was beginning to use my brain for a change and cut some ties, so they wanted to be in more control of my life than me."

That's all well and good, but can she explain the 15-minute lip-sync mini-tour?

If you read into this she is still in DENIAL...She is not ready for sobriety and keeping her heart pure!!! Stand by for more non thinking actions and she will blame the man on the moon for her misgivings...sigh!!!!

Is there nothing else to talk about?    

How dare Britney Spears equate her attention seeking, spoiled, gutter-crawling behavior with the genuine condition of ADD which so many children struggle to cope with. Why do we give coverage to the self-absorbed rantings which she is now spewing out in a pathetic attempt to re-ingratiate herself with her few remaining fans? She never had any talent, her popularity was won solely on a few soft-porn 'music' videos. Now we must listen to her philosophic and spiritual musings.

I find the ADD comment very offensive too. Way to go Britney, you've managed to offend a whole new group of people.

Get over it!!    

I just think she's not that smart and has had NO direction. I really don't like what she said about ADD either(I have loved ones with it) but I just think she's really stupid, I'm not gonna hold it against her. She's trying to find ways to explain herself, when really she just needs to slow down and take care of herself and her family. Oh well still love her!!!

Dear Britney

As the father of an ADHD child, your association of a "bad
kid running around with ADD" is totally inappropriate. First of all,
children with ADD are not bad, and second of all, you have no concept
of what ADD is. Everyone probably does not understand all the hard
work that it takes to be a famous person; however, perhaps the rise
to fame and stardom, combined with the, always underestimated,
responsibilities associated with raising a family was too much for
you to handle, given your young age and level of maturity. You
should consider taking a break, reassess your life and your
priorities, get your life in order, and devote yourself to your
children. They will only be children for a short time and whatever
your reasons for having them, it is too late to reconsider. Give
them all your love. Anyone who says they can have it all ... are
lying! Everything in life, comes at a price! Be honest with
yourself and try not to be unduly influenced by all your fame and
fortune. I mean, how much money do you need to be happy?

Take care!

You know what my biggest issue with this female is? She NEVER changes! Why can't she ever just admit she was at fault, admit you have a problem? She always always has to blame someone else. She always has to downplay her stupidity and make herself seem like she is just a victim of everyone in her life! Boo Hoo! She is ridiculous. I can name 20 celebs who have been able to be in the public eye and still have their life together, despite everything. She's just spoiled, childish and uneducated! Christina Aguilera went through the same trials and tribulations of being a childstar and a teen idol ad yet, today she's well-polished, has an explosive career, she's steered clear of major tabloid drama and has a great man at her side and guess what? She's britney's age! There is no excuse for her to be acting the way she does. Grow up and dedicate your life to raising your two kids that you wanted so bad! Another thing, why can't ever cultivate a classy, stylish and sexy image? Why is it that after all these years she's still tacky and cheap-looking? Absolutely inexcusable!

God help you all...............must be nice to know everything( :)...I know you mean well, but some people are just jerks). This is why people come here. Are you new? Why even waste your breath trying to tell others to be nice...........NOT gonna happen, especially here. I pretty much said the same thing.....the way these people judge is disgusting, but we're not gonna change it.

ps....mr HYPOCRIT....you call me out on my spelling and you didn't even spell it right(I didn't notice right away either but it IS FUNNY)


LOVE YA BRITNEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
