Britney Spears Keeps It Real On Valentine's Day At McDonald's
"Britney Spears finally got the ghetto-fabulous Valentine`s Day she`s always wanted! She spent Feb. 14 with boyfriend Justin Traywick and sons Jayden James, 3, and Sean Preston, 4 " at a McDonald`s drive-thru in L.A
While the boys napped, Britney and Justin snuck out for a V-Day `Happy Meal.`
`Britney didn`t seem to care that she didn`t`t get a special Valentine`s meal and seemed perfectly happy with eating McDonald`s French fries in the car,` a source told People magazine. `She also looked happy to be with Jason.`"
Celebs sometimes go to extravagant lenghts to make a big splash on Valentine`s Day, for example Angelina Jolie gave Brad Pitt an $18,500 tree as a Valentine`s Day present. I hope Brad told Angelina exactly where she could stick that tree.
Britney`s dad still controls his daughter`s finances, and he keeps her on a short leash. But Britney could still afford something a little bit more upscale like Denny`s or Red Lobster. I give Britney props for keeping things real, and staying true to her trailer park roots.
With so many celebs like Lindsay Lohan and Amy Winehouse unable to overcome their demons, I commend Britney for having made great strides towards normalcy.
