Britney Spears Cruises Around in Tiny Smart Car: Picture

Good things come in small packages! Just ask Britney Spears, who downsized her ride a few months back and has been zipping around town in a tiny set of wheels ever since.

On Monday, Feb. 4, the former X Factor judge took her Mercedes-Benz Smart car for a spin to go to a business meeting. With her bodyguard beside her in the eco-friendly vehicle — a white model with glossy black detailing — the "Hold it Against Me" singer, 31, looked at ease as she cruised down the street.

One day earlier, the starlet was a hot topic of conversation among fans of her most famous ex-boyfriend, Justin Timberlake, who performed a two-hour show in New Orleans the night before the Super Bowl. Talking to the standing-room crowd before singing his hit song "Cry Me a River" — the kiss-off anthem he wrote after his breakup with Spears in 2002 — the 32-year-old entertainer reportedly said, "Sometimes in life, you think you found the one, but then one day you find out that she is just some bitch."

Some took the offhand comment to be an insult to Spears, but Timberlake insists he meant no offense to his ex. "OK. I see you. Wouldn't disrespect ANYONE personally. Ever," he tweeted on Feb. 3.

In any case, the last couple of months have not been especially kind to the mom-of-two. (She shares sons Sean Preston, 7, and Jayden James, 6, with ex-husband Kevin Federline.) On Jan. 11, she officially quit her job as a judge on The X Factor amid rumors that she was going to be fired. And later that same day, she announced that she and fiance Jason Trawick had called off their engagement.
