Britney Spears' Internet Usage Is 'Heavily Monitored', as It Should Be

britney spearsBritney Spears has been blocked from certain websites. Not because she's constantly writing things like, "ZOMG, u think ur so smart wen srsly ur just a dumb idiot i h8 u" in the comments section, but because she can't handle certain websites that write negative things about celebrities. Or, as it's otherwise known as: The Internet. Much like fellow celeb LeAnn Rimes, the ol' computer machine has some seriously negative effects on Britney.

A new report from Radar Online claims: "Britney's cell phone and Internet use is restricted and heavily monitored, and this is done for her protection. Britney and Jason essentially share a cell phone, and it's routinely checked to see who has been calling ... Brit's computer usage is also restricted in the sense that certain websites are blocked. Her family doesn't want Britney reading negative stories that would upset her. Again, this is all done with love and for her well-being."

Now, which sites are blocked?


The report doesn't get into the specifics, but I'm guessing The New York Times, Mother Jones, and The New Republic aren't among them. (Or, hopefully, The Stir -- hi, Brit!)

You know, I actually think it's a good idea to monitor Spears' Internet usage if it seriously bums her out. As most of us know, it can be a cruel, cruel world out here in cyberspace. But I will say, I am always genuinely surprised when I hear that massive celebrities are genuinely affected by dumb things said about them on the Internet. My knee-jerk reaction tells me they're above it, but I guess when you think about -- and like LeAnn said -- they're only human.

Now. Have her handlers blocked her from newsstands?
