Britney's Bookstore Hysteria

11/29/2007 10:17 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears caused chaos in the most unlikely of places last night -- a bookstore! No, she wasn't picking up the latest additions to the bestseller list -- she was just gettin' her coffee on.



Barnes and Noble has a Starbucks, y'all! And as the percolated popwreck weaved through aisles of books, paparazzi literally jumped out at every turn, causing utter insanity inside the usually quiet location. Apparently, Barnes and Noble has no issue with paps running amok through their aisles!

Brit took refuge in the Starbucks kitchen and hid in the bathroom until her order was ready. It took eight, yes eight, LAPD officers to escort her safely to her car -- now there's taxpayer money put to good use! Britney, shockingly, purchased no books.

Why should Britney have to send someone to get herself a coffee? She has a right to be out just like everyone else. I know many people who only go to the bookstore to just look around or just grab a coffee. Britney DOES NOT have to call the paparazzi, they follow that poor girl EVERYWHERE. She shouldn't have to make herself a recluse. Maybe the paparazzi should be summoned for disturbing the peace.

@#6 - Kris, don't insult tarts by calling Trainwreck Spears a "tart." And uh, hello, she's not "wandering around places without any purpose", she gettinng her caffeine and papz on. Isn't that purpose enough to wander about?

Why do the idiot paps follow her every move? No one cares if she gets coffee. No one cares if she drove through Taco Bell.

It's not news and it's not gossip, either. It's just.......filler. Boring filler.

She sure likes her Starbucks coffee, but I think she really likes being the center of attention. Some of us would send someone else in, but not her. Gotta be in front of the cameras. You'd think she would clean up a little, instead of looking frumpy. I guess the next story will feature her stopping to gas up the car again. We all gotta make sure she is drinking her Starbucks and keeping the car filled up, don't we?

Okay, enough stuff about this chick. Can we move on to the real world now?

I read these stories everyday on here.... and each time there is some kind of slam against her which always involves something that happend with all the Paps. And then i read comments from ppl that say she shouldnt go somewhere or do something because of all the media attention, do those ppl saying such not see wrong in that in any way... ? Im not a "leave Britney alone" guy.. I just think she deserves some space to do something without that something involving an accidental chance to run over a foot, or cause her to look like the problem when it is really the masses of Paps.

Even if she did call them, the idiots still come and create mass hysteria. Saying she wants attention is stupid. She is/was a performer. of course she wants attention. All stars do! Only difference now is that she doesn't have to perform to get it. She can just go buy a cup of coffee.

I honestly feel sorry for her when it comes to the paps. I wouldn't want that kind of attention for 1 hour, let alone day after day. And the people here are cruel to her, and tell her to stay home. What?!? Would you want to be confined to your home? Or your car when you want to go on an errand? Would your friends put up with being your "errand runner" or "go getter" on a DAILY basis? How many people does she need to hire so she can have a normal life, like we do? We need to stop pointing the finger at her, we all ive in glass houses. And just because your famous, it doesn't give others the right to stalk you at every turn. And it is stalking. Following someone everywhere they go and filming them or taking their picture is stalking. How many of us could really put up with that ALL the time before we went crazy? Obviously she's made some huge mistakes. But in chaos like this, the blame lies with the paps, not her. If they weren't there, there wouldn't be any chaos. She'd get her coffee like anyone else. Why does she have to stay at home and make it? It's not her fault they are vultures.

At least she is not driving, of lately I always see someone else driving. Baby steps Britney.

She definitly needs to research some parenting skills as well. Its not all that difficult to take additional classes and find other avenues of success in the parenting department... Im sure with a little foot work on the web, she can manage it.

Over- all, I see some improvemet in her and I applaud any effort no matter how small...She stopped being " friendly" with the paps, does not go out as often as she used to, and Lufti has been driving. All good stuff.

Dog is a racist mutt!    

Musta been scared and confused by whatcha call them thingies again............? Oh, that's right, books. Poor thing, it's always so traumatizing to find yourself in such an unfamiliar and utterly strange place, such as a bookstore.

Tinkerbell, they camp outside of her home and follow her the moment she leaves. They have a whole network of people informing them of where she is and where she's going. They don't need her help in hunting her down.

THANK YOU! Finally, someone else besides me feels this way. Why do paps feel the need to take endless photos/video of stars buying coffee, driving around, walking, putting gas in their cars, etc? This is not news, guys. This is fluff. I dont need to know, nor do I even want to know, everytime some celeb picks up a pack of smokes or buys a coffee or goes to the bathroom. I really wish TMZ would report real celebrity news and not this crap.
