A week ago, our queen, Britney Spears, released pictures of herself on the set of her new Elizabeth Arden fragrance commercial. In one pic, she was dressed to resemble Cleopatra, and boy did our girl look good. In the second, she went for a more flapper-inspired ensemble, and even her fiance Jason Trawick said she looked like Jean Harlow.

Now that we think about it, everyone was raving about how great Brit looked. But RadarOnline is now reporting that Spears was kind of “out of it” at the shoot; incessantly smoking cigarettes during breaks and appearing “robotic.”

“Britney didn’t interact with the cast or crew at all during the two day shoot and she seemed to be just going through the motions when the camera was rolling, and seemed out of it,” said a source to RadarOnline.

“Britney was almost robotic in her movements. Britney’s fiance, Jason Trawick, was along for the shoot and everyone thought at first he was her assistant because she spent so much time huddled up with him when not filming,” continued the source. “Britney must have smoked at least a pack a day during the two day shoot and was always smoking when not filming. Security was very tight ,and Britney had more bodyguards than usual and was kept out of sight from visitors to the Queen Mary.”

We wouldn’t necessarily go so far as to say she’s “robotic,” but our girl has been appearing a little stiff in the public eye as of late. And who could blame her? With her every move being criticized by the public, we’d probably be a little hesitant to relax too.

“She looked amazing though, and her fans will love the commercial. Britney did was what asked of her and the end result worked, but the crew wondered why there was such a heightened presence of security,” the source added. “It was just a bit over the top and security even stayed after the shoot to make sure that no one took any pictures of Britney as she left.”

If we could afford it, we’d have security with us at all times too. And we’re just regular people.
