New York Post Says Sorry to Britney

Britney Spears may have done a lot of questionable things, but drinking whiskey on the street in the middle of the day is apparently not one of them.

A paparazzo snapped the newly engaged singer on July 12 when she was drinking out of a tiny bottle she had purchased at a Venice, California, liquor store, and the New York Post as well as U.K. tabloids ran with the shot, claiming Spears' drink of choice was Glenlivet whiskey.

The Sun ran the story Wednesday with the headline "Britney on the Rocks," while the Post put the singer on the cover Thursday, with the front-page headline "Britney Hits the Bottle" and an inside headline of "Boozer Britney: Daylight Bottle Blonde."
