Pop star Britney Spears has given up any hope of living a normal life - unless she's walking around New York's Central Park in disguise.

The TOXIC singer's huge level of fame makes it impossible to go anywhere in the world without getting hassled by fans, and she has to employ drastic measures to retain some privacy when she's in public.

She laments, "If I put a hat on I can wander Central Park. I go to clubs to hear what people are listening to. I never get hassled because I have my own little area with a velvet rope and a very big man."
