BRAND NEW ON E!
As Britney Spears continues her Circus tour throughout California this week, Spears' alleged trespasser Miranda Tozier-Robbins spoke exclusively to E! News about why she snuck onto the pop star's property and the reason she believes things have been blown out of proportion.
Tozier-Robbins, 26, is a former American Idol hopeful who says she has been in Los Angeles for about a month and a half and is actively pursing an entertainment industry career in numerous fields, one being paparazzi-like documentary filmmaking.
According to Tozier-Robbins, Britney's house was simply chosen because of its convenient location and perfect timing—she knew Spears would be in L.A. for her tour this week and apparently her address is available online.
"The documentary is more or less just, [me] on the way to Britney's house, going on the bicycle ride, the camping out in the woods," says Tozier-Robbins.
While she confesses to being a fan of Spears, Tozier-Robbins claims that she is in no way a stalker. "There's no obsession with Britney. Somebody else can go ahead and claim the title of Britney's stalker, because I sure as heck don't want it, you know!"
Once on the property, Tozier-Robbins was immediately caught by a Spears security guard and arrested for trespassing. She received a citation and was released.
But Tozier-Robbins tells E! that she would do something like this again in the future—minus the trespassing.
"I learned my lesson," she says. "What I was doing was paparazzi work preparation. I'd like to do some paparazzi gigs—it's a start."
Unfortunately for Tozier-Robbins, the type of work she claims to want to do—music, movies, TV—is not easily achieved through this kind of start in the biz.
Tozier-Robbins appears to be changing her tune about the motivation behind her misadventure. Speaking to Access Hollywood on Friday, she claimed that it was all a joke in the beginning, one that "everyone knew about."
For now, Tozier-Robbins says she's just awaiting her day in court (her next hearing is June 16) so she can reclaim her confiscated "documentary" footage.
