Do you, Us Weekly, In Touch, Star and other desperate magazines want employees who are honest, or those who are liars?"

Let her feelings be known, Spears continued "Your employees are a reflection of your magazine, I'm really concerned about the people you hire to work at your companies. I'd like them to ask themselves the question, `What am I lying to myself about?' Is it that you are 50 pounds overweight? Is it that your children aren't making wise decisions? Or is it maybe that your husband or boyfriend is cheating on you? Until you face what is going on in your life, I guess you'll remain a false tabloid."
