BRITNEY SPEARS has defended her parenting in a call to CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 KIIS (KISS FM)/LOS ANGELES morning man and AMERICAN IDOL host RYAN SEACREST. When asked by SEACREST if she was doing all she could for her children, SPEARS said: "Oh God, yeah."
SPEARS is currently embroiled in a custody battle over her two young boys with ex-husband KEVIN FEDERLINE.
"It's sad, how cruel the world can be. At the end of the day, you've just got to know in your heart you're doing the best you can," she said. "I try not to let it get to me," she added, referring to recent media coverage.

FEDERLINE has full custody of two-year-old SEAN PRESTON and one-year-old JAYDEN JAMES, but SPEARS is allowed three monitored visits with them a week. But she seemed unsure when asked by SEACREST how often she would have access to them.
"That's, like, all in the court. Stuff like that, my lawyers know all that stuff," she said.
SPEARS told SEACREST she did not do anything special to celebrate the release of "Blackout," her first studio album in four years. "We watched movies ... had fried chicken," she said. She said her favorite track on the album was "Heaven on Earth."
The short telephone interview ended abruptly when her assistant ALLI SIMS told SEACREST that SPEARS had left to have a shower.
