Dance DJ Moby has likened Britney Spears to a “broken-down shell of a human being”, but insists that is what makes her so “endearing”.
The Porcelain hitmaker collaborated with the Toxic hitmaker on a track for her 2003 album In The Zone, four years before she suffered a breakdown, which saw her shave her head, attack a car with an umbrella then enter a psychiatric ward.

Moby, real name Richard Hall, reveals Spears was already showing signs of her troubled side when he worked with her – but he is still a fan of the singer.

He says, “Britney’s actually kind of like a broken-down shell of a human being, that’s what makes her so endearing and compelling. She was lovely, but really broken. Like, (A Streetcar Named Desire character) Blanche Dubois-style broken. Actually, the most entitled people I’ve met are indie rockers and indie actors, because they really believe their press.”
