Brit Bodymen Smack Paps Down
It was a mad scene outside of Intermix yesterday, where the paps butted heads with Britney's security team as the popwreck left the Robertson Store.
After she celebrated her daddy's extended conservatorship with a shopping spree, Brit and her new beret tried to make it to her waiting SUV -- but couldn't get to it without her bodyguard strong-arming a few photogs to clear a path. TMZ tried to ask a few questions, but due to the insane camera crush, she didn't hear anything.

Al Gore, you got company.
