Pop superstar Madonna wants the media to stop targetting troubled singer Britney Spears - because her daughter LOURDES feels sorry for her. The Holiday hitmaker - who famously kissed Spears during a performance at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards - admits her 11-year-old daughter has been distressed by her public downfall. She says, "(The media) need to step off. For real... Let's go save her. "(Lourdes) knows Britney, but she doesn't really watch TV or read gossip stuff. I think she sort of gets the drift of what's going on, and I think she feels very protective of Britney." Earlier this year (08), Spears lost the right to visit her sons Sean Preston, two, and Jayden James, one, last month (Jan08) after a breakdown at her Beverly Hills home. She has also spent time in a rehabilitation centre and has been plagued by driving offences.
