WATCH: Chris Crocker Discusses Growing Up With A Mom Like Britney Spears

V magazine has profiled Chris Crocker for their “Americana Issue,” and he’s revealed some interesting details about why he so passionately defended Britney Spears during her low period. He says his mom experienced a similar drug addiction and he knew what it was like to have a mom in that state, so he felt the need to stand up for her.

Crocker, 24, is the subject of the documentary Me @ The Zoo, premiering this June on HBO. We caught Zoo at Sundance back in Januar and sat down with Crocker then to chat about how HBO picked up the doc, why he was ditching his porn career, and what exactly he said to Paris Hilton when he met her at the festival. Has he changed at all in the past few months, do you think?
