Brit Knows She's "Gorgeous"

Britney Spears is a lot of things, but "gorgeous"?

TMZ caught Spears paying for gas at a Shell station in Malibu yesterday, where one photog went to great lengths to get a reaction from the popwreck. He first lied to her face and said she looked "beautiful" and "gorgeous," which she responded to with, "I know." He then yelled "It's Britney bitch!" not once, but twice. Clever!

A poor bystander got caught in the Brit crush and had to yell his way through the crowd after paying inside the station -- "Regular person coming through, get out my f**kin' way!"
