Ellen DeGeneres encourages Britney Spears to steal at the mall
At one point in the clip, DeGeneres encouraged Spears to steal after the singer saw a small bag that she liked. Spears held the bag and DeGeneres asked her to just take it because she’s a celebrity.
Portia de Rossi’s wife stressed that as a celebrity, she and Spears could get a lot of things for free. At first, Spears hesitated. She told DeGeneres that what the comedian wants her to do is tantamount to stealing. But the funny woman said that it’s OK.

DeGeneres and Spears also went to an ice cream where the former asked the staff to give Spears huge scoops of ice cream. The Ellen Show host didn’t want ice cream for herself, but she asked the staff to give her sprinkles.
The staff obliged even though DeGeneres asked her to put the sprinkles in her hands instead of a cup. At one point, DeGeneres also asked the staff if she could get the money in the counter.
