Bright Eyes mainman Conor Oberst is jumping to the defense of Britney Spears in the August issue of Blender magazine. “We played ‘The Tonight Show’ last fall and went across the street to this Mexican restaurant,” Oberst explained. “The place was swarming with cameras. Britney Spears was eating in the other side of the restaurant. The way people treated her was the saddest, most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen. It was like the Elephant Man, like the circus. I couldn’t shake it for a couple of days. I’d never want to be near that kind of celebrity.”
