‘Princess of pop’, eight-time Grammy Award winner, and knife dancer Britney Spears was pulled over and ticketed last month for allegedly passing on a double yellow lined road near her Southern California home. In a frantic interaction with the officer, Spears explains that she was rushing home because she had to ‘tee tee’. When it was revealed that she didn’t have any form of identification, the officer delivered a ticket for the infraction.
The icon of a generation has been pulled over before in the same area by the same police officer two times previously this year, according to the cop’s claims in the ‘body worn video’ account. It’s tough to tell exactly what she’s saying to the police officer, but I think early in the conversation she says something very funny; “It feels like my butt is about to pop out my nose.”
In case Brit Brit—or a member of her staff—is reading this, please take the following advice into consideration. Never talk to a cop beyond “Yes, sir” or “No, sir”. Keep your hands on the steering wheel at all times, unless instructed to do otherwise. Keep a copy of your license and registration in every vehicle you own, so you can never be caught without it. I’ve interacted with cops enough that my heart jumped when she reached into the glovebox with a quick motion. You never know what is going to make a cop “fear for their life” and it’s best to not give them an excuse to bring out their weapon. Slow, measured reactions and verbal confirmation of what you’re doing when you do it are best practices. Even if you’re a highly recognizable pop star.
