Britney Spears has hit back at the paparazzi, insisting they plot to portray her in an unflattering light. The TOXIC singer is stalked by a pack of photographers whenever she leaves her home and is a favourite target for the tabloid media. She says, "That is their job and they do a very good job at it." The 24-year-old claims the incident when she was photographed leaving a Starbucks coffee shop and driving with her son Sean Preston on her lap was completely blown out of proportion. She explains, "I went to Starbucks and I see a bunch of photographers, and I'm scared and I wanna get outta the situation, and my baby's crying. "They're coming up on the, you know, sides of the car, which is a scary situation for me. They're banging on the windows. "So I get my baby in the car and I go home. So I mean, I just feel like they're taking cheap shots."
