Britney Spears Responds to Pantygate Scandal on Her Web Site

Britney Spears has finally responded to the Pantygate scandal, posting a message on the home page of her Web site for the first time since photos of the megastar's private parts appeared on the Internet.

Spears takes a playful approach in the message, asking fans to understand that babymaking has prevented her from partying with pals and thanking God for "Victoria's Secrets' (sic) new underwear line."

The message reads as follows:

"It's been so long since I've been out on the town with friends. It's also been 2 years since I celebrated my birthday. Every move I make at this point has been magnified more than I expected, and I probably did take my new found (sic) freedom a little too far. Anyway, thank God for Victoria's Secrets' new underwear line! I look forward to a new year, new music and a new me.

I'm just getting started....Happy Holidays everyone!


The "friends" mentioned in the message include Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, with whom Spears was partying when she was caught going commando. Spears is said to have a new album in the works.

Meanwhile, in an interview that aired Wednesday night on "E! News," Spears' soon-to-be ex-husband Kevin Federline said he was doing "great."

"I am good, I am great, you know ... just moving along, progressing and taking it all in stride," the 28-year-old aspiring rapper said.

Spears, who turned 25 on Dec. 2, filed for divorce last month after two years of marriage. She and Federline have a 1-year-old son, Sean Preston, and an infant son, Jayden James, who was born Sept. 12. Spears is seeking custody of both children, with visitation rights for Federline.

Federline, who is seeking spousal support and sole custody of his sons with Spears, says he's a family man and "that is the truth ... in all honesty, that is what it is."
