Arrested on Thursday for allegedly peering into the windows of Britney Spears’ house, Miranda Tozier-Robbins explained herself, saying the entire incident was a joke and part of a sort of documentary.
“The whole thing — it was all a joke in the beginning, everybody knew about it,” Tozier-Robbins, who claims to be a student at the Art Institute of California, told Billy Bush. “It was supposed to be like a ‘Paparazzi <http://www.accesshollywood.com/paparazzi> 101’ documentary type deal.”
“What originally was supposed to happen was, I was going to tape whatever I could get. I would be like, far away doing a stakeout,” she told Bush. “It didn’t work out as planned, so when I was already halfway there in the mountains [around Britney’s home], it was already Wednesday night/Thursday morning… I already knew Britney herself wouldn’t be there, but it’s like, I came that far, I might as well go see the house, at least get the house on tape, because I know people would be interested in seeing stuff like that.”
“It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity, you understand? She’s coming through on the tour, on the stop, it’s like take your chance,” Miranda said. “Take the opportunity, do it.”
The former American Idol hopeful didn’t balk when it was suggested she was a stalker: “Yeah, sure. That would be a fair term to use. Tracking, stalking, whatever, for a couple weeks long,” she said. “It wasn’t really stalking her, it was more plotting out how to get to her house.”
Her court hearing is set for June 16.
