Last week I posted about Britney Spears’ imminent guest appearance on How I Met Your Mother which did, in fact, take place. Soon thereafter a wide variety of reports began circulating about Spears’ time on the set, some of which were, according to Neil Patrick Harris, a bit misleading.
NPH released a statement to Towleroad this afternoon in an effort to clear up any confusion about remarks he was heard to have made about the pop star:
Said Harris: “In response to the recent weekly rag item regarding Britney Spears appearing on our show, I want to offer a little clarification, and to avoid any further drama, I thought I should act quickly. First, I honestly respect the fact that she is re-establishing herself in the industry and we are proud that she was able to be part of our show. Secondly, I would never refer to her as a ‘nightmare’ as she was extremely professional, punctual and pleasant during her time on set. I did say that her life has been somewhat ‘nightmarish,’ but only in reference to being hounded by the media and paparazzi around the clock. If there was a negative, I suppose it was the scrutiny. Everyone was on guard, concerned for Britney’s well-being. We were conscious of camera phones, wary of strangers. Her world may be hectic, so we wanted her to feel comfortable in ours. Truly. No spin. She did her job, and did it well.”
