Britney's Peeping Thomasina Was “American Idol” Hopeful

A woman arrested outside Britney Spears' home is a former "American Idol" hopeful who says she's making a paparazzi documentary. Miranda Tozier-Robbins said she wanted to show the efforts paparazzi go through and she chose Spears because it "might as well be someone I'm interested in."

Tozier-Robbins, 26, was arrested, dressed in camouflage and taking pictures as she peeked into Britney Spears' windows early Thursday. Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department deputies arrested her after being called by security guards at the singer's Calabasas home. She was  issued a citation for trespassing and disorderly conduct and released.

The Fitchburg, Mass., native responded electronically to a series of questions from The Associated Press on Friday, and confirmed her identity in a phone message. She says she wasn't expecting Spears to be home, but would have tried to sell pictures of the singer if she got any.

The incident happened hours before Spears was scheduled to perform the first of two shows this week in Los Angeles. The 27-year-old singer was not home at the time of the incident. After two shows in Los Angeles on Thursday and Friday nights, she was scheduled to move the tour to the Honda Center, in Anaheim, on Sunday and Monday.

Spears recently moved from her hilltop home in Los Angeles. Her former home was prone to spying by the paparazzi, who occasionally staked out a fire access road to try to get shots of the 27-year-old.
