Neil Patrick Harris admits he’s the ‘bad cop’ when parenting his twins

24 Sep 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

Britney Spears is the ultimate pop princess prankster as she fools bodyguards in hilarious gag on Neil Patrick Harris’ show.

“They’re at the age where they challenge, so every once in a while my voice gets very deep. The 33-year-old performer had to do and say everything Harris, who was joined by Joe Jonas, told her to in a concealed earpiece in a segment called Voices in Your Head.With hidden cameras rolling, “Best Time Ever” host Neil Patrick Harris, singer Joe Jonas and pop icon Britney Spears had a little fun with three men who’d applied to be Spears’ bodyguard.

My bass baritone kicks in, and the dreaded ‘time-out’ looms over their heads,” Harris told People of the kids he shares with husband David Burtka, a chef and Broadway star. The high jinks didn’t end there as one-by-one the Toxic singer escorted each bodyguard to her “Piece of Me” stage in Las Vegas where she recently announced her residency has been extended two more years. ‘Even when I’m doing this,’ she challenged the men as she broke into a performance on stage while her dancers came out from backstage and surrounded her for the routine. Reminiscent of TruTV’s “Impractical Jokers” — whose stars use a hidden earpiece to dare each other to do unusual things with unsuspecting strangers in public — the bit shows Spears conducting candidate interviews while, in another room, Harris and Jonas offer odd instructions through her earpiece. In May, Burtka talked about their different parenting styles during an appearance on the “Today Show” where he claimed Harris is the “stern disciplinarian” where as he’s the one to dish out “maternal hugs” to the kids. Patterson had no problem protecting the Baby One More Time singer as he jumped right in the middle of the group and tried to follow the dancers in their routine.

The result took a few strange turns, including flawless bodyguard dance moves, a reference to Scooby Doo as a superhero, and a moment when Spears opted to, as Harris put it, go “rogue” by asking one applicant to switch seats repeatedly — without being instructed to do so by Harris or Jonas. Keith took a different approach and seemed apprehensive at first but reluctantly entered the circle of performers and hovered over Britney with his arms out, ensuring nobody could touch her. In 2014, he cursed out a fan who interrupted his Broadway performance of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch.” “There is nothing greater than arriving home before dinner and having them run down the stairs and jump into your arms,” he told People. “That takes away any upset or distraction you had throughout the day.” “With kids you need to be able to answer their questions in earnest and you need to try and get from the way they are asking the question to what they might actually be wanting to know.” The actor, who frequently shares his family adventures on Instagram, is looking forward for his little ones “to be a little more self sufficient” so he can hang out with them more.
