Britney Spears has reportedly thanked her management team for forcing her to enter rehab.

The Oops! I Did it Again singer spent March in a Californian drug rehabilitation clinic after observers suggested the singer's mental state was deteriorating following the breakdown of her high-profile marriage with rapper Kevin Federline.

And amid reports last week that the 25-year-old was unhappy with her long-time manager Larry Rudolph, Spears recorded a special video message backing the rehab decision.

After leaving a sushi restaurant in Los Angeles with her cousin Allie, she turned on the waiting pack of paparazzi and told one to record what she was saying.

"It was so right and like my management totally knew what they were doing when they sent me to rehab. So right you know?," she said.

Then in seemingly sarcastic comments she continued: "I just want to say that I'm just really, really shocked at like how nice our world is because it is just so nice.

"Like, oh my god. Like the other day like I was sitting there and I saw all these magazines and they said I was pregnant and like it's so true.

"Like, America, believe everything you read because like you're smart and I'm stupid."
