Brit: Konnichiwha the Hell is Going On Here?!

12/15/2008 2:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

There has never been a person more obviously confused and bewildered than Britney Spears on a Japanese TV show this weekend. It's both awkward and entertaining -- much like everything else she does.

She probably went backstage and cried b/c she thought people were laughing at her. God forbid someone made eye contact or touched this ugly bitch!

This is not funny. Japanese is one of the hardest languages to learn. I should know because I live in Japan with my family and I take lessons. It is overwhelming when you are in a crowd and are trying to keep up with the conversation. You try being in the spotlight with other people talking in a different language. All and all, Japanese are a very polite people that wouldn't disgrace someone in public. I cannot say that the hosts of this show weren't doing that, but it is always possible as things change with the younger generations. This is not news, this is TMZ's way of keeping the "dumb" Britney in the spotlight when they wouldn't have faired as well either. I know I don't. It is intimidating and awkward. Can you just leave her alone for once. Save it for the panty shots.

Where was her agent? That circus attraction should never have taken place without a warning. She was ambushed I think, and I do think they were making fun of her. I'm not even a Britney fan, but she should have had better information.

I don't think it would take much of anything to make her look foolish
and mentally vacant. And to those who wish they all spoke English and
only English...um.....they are in JAPAN and already had a translator.
Do you really expect the other commentators to do their show in
English? If a Japanese person were interviewed on a comedy show here,
would you expect everyone on the show to speak Japanese? If her
handlers are too greedy or stupid to get her interviews where she's
not a target, that's their fault!

Then, i guess the answer is....she needs new handlers, people that know what they are doing.

My understanding of Japanese is limited, and the audio is horrible, but in the beginning of the video they seem to be talking about hot springs and saunas (the Womanizer video?) and then they (somehow) move on to the exchange rate between the Yen and the Dollar, which is not favorable to Americans right now. I think the interpreter asked her where she wanted to go (as in places) while she was in Japan, and Britney misinterpreted the question, responding "shopping". One of the hosts repeated a comment about the exchange rate being terrible right now, and everybody started laughing. At the end of the interview, I think she exited the stage the wrong way, resulting in more laughter.
