Dont Buy Britney Spears, Latest Album (Blackout) Says Her Pals


Britney Spears' friends have begged her fans to not buy her latest album, Blackout, until she cleans up her act.

The unnamed pals have set up their own group, Be Proactive to Help, to urge the public to boycott the troubled star's new LP.

Writing on their MySpace page, they begged: "Our message is simple, don't buy her stuff until she's better."

The group - who include a former bodyguard, a backing dancer and a make-up artist, as well as several old friends  want fans to contact Britney's record label Jive, her management team and MTV to air their concerns.

They said: "Let them know you'll buy her album, but not until she is clean and sober and realises the amazing life she has created for herself.

"Let them know you'll be around to buy her music and her merchandise when she sets a better example of how to be a performer."

Britney has seen her life spiral out of control since splitting from ex-husband Kevin Federline last November.

She has been lambasted for her excessive partying, drinking and drug taking.

Earlier this month, the Toxic singer lost custody of her two sons, Sean Preston, two, and 13-month-old Jayden James, after a judge ruled she was a "habitual, frequent and continuous" drug user.

Britney is not the first star to have her friends and family urge fans to boycott her.

Earlier this year, Amy Winehouse's father-in-law pleaded with the public to snub her music until she got medical help for her drug addiction.

Giles Fielder-Civil, the father of Amy's husband Blake, said: "Perhaps it is time to stop buying records. It's a possibility, to send that message."
