Washington, Feb 17 : Canadian singer Avril Lavigne has criticized the paparazzi for the way they keep on hounding Britney Spears.
Lavigne claimed that she herself had problems with the press, but that it was still nothing compared to the treatment that Britney was getting at their hands.
"No one else has it as hard as Britney. I feel bad for her," Contactmusic quoted Lavigne, as telling Maxim magazine.
"How does she even think with all those flashbulbs? When I'm being followed, everything's thrown off," she said.
"They run lights. They cause accidents. She can't even walk to her car," she added.
