Britney Spears is lawyering up against the 'bloids (a cool abbrev for "tabloids" I just made up), threatening to sue the rag mags if they don't stop telling lies about her.

According to TMZ, which of course only has its heart in the right place, Spears' lawyer sent a letter to InTouch warning them not to publish a story they were trying to push about Spears allegedly "talking and laughing to herself and using a British accent" (aka acting crazy) at last month's VMAs.
