Nelly Furtado says she empathizes with Britney Spears for what she has been going through.
"First of all, when she became a mother, I really felt for her in those situations where she was being caught doing, like, illegal things in her car with child seats and stuff," she says. "I felt bad for her because you could tell that she was under such pressure from the paparazzi that she was behaving in rash ways. So that's what made me feel for her."
"And I can sympathize 'cause I'm a mother too, and I know those first couple of years are difficult. You know, you're becoming a new person. She's a young mother."
"I can't imagine what it would be like to mature in the spotlight from the age of 13 to 20. Those are precious years and it would be really hard to grow up in the spotlight. Breakdown is inevitable in that situation."
One theory has been that Britney, who shaved her head before entering rehab, is suffering from post-partum depression and just hasn't been diagnosed.
"Oh, yeah, totally possible," said Nelly. "Human beings can only deal with so much when you're only one person. You know, you need an escape - and then a lot of people choose to escape into the mind."
