Miranda Tozier-Robbins, the 26-year-old woman who was arrested by authorities on Thursday after allegedly peering into the windows of Britney Spears' Southern California home, has claimed the incident was "a joke."
"The whole thing — it was all a joke in the beginning, everybody knew about it," the woman, who claims to be a student at the Art Institute of California, told Billy Bush for Access Hollywood and "The Billy Bush Show" on Friday. "It was supposed to be like a 'Paparazzi 101' documentary type deal."

During the interview earlier this morning, Miranda claimed she chose to venture on to Britney's Calabasas, Calif. property — where the pop star's security spotted, detained and turned her over to the police — on a whim.
"What originally was supposed to happen was, I was going to tape whatever I could get. I would be like, far away doing a stakeout," she told Billy. "It didn't work out as planned, so when I was already halfway there in the mountains [around Britney's home], it was already Wednesday night/Thursday morning… I already knew Britney herself wouldn't be there, but it's like, I came that far, I might as well go see the house, at least get the house on tape, because I know people would be interested in seeing stuff like that."
At one point Miranda told Billy she believed Britney would not be home, despite having a slew of concerts in the Los Angeles area this week. However, Miranda later seemed to suggest to Billy that she had a hunch Britney would be at her residence.
"It's a once in a lifetime opportunity, you understand? She's coming through on the tour, on the stop, it's like take your chance," Miranda said.
"Take the opportunity, do it," she laughed.
When asked whether she was a stalker, Miranda said it was OK to use the word.
"Yeah, sure. That would be a fair term to use. Tracking, stalking, whatever, for a couple weeks long," she said. "It wasn't really stalking her, it was more plotting out how to get to her house."
Miranda is due in court on June 16 to answer to charges of trespassing and disorderly conduct.
In the meantime, she told Billy she plans to finish her film.
"The next thing really is the footage that I got. I just wanna finish putting together the little documentary showing, you know – 'Oh, we're walking through the woods, the mountains. Oh! I have the flashlight,'" she said. "I mean it was just more kind of the fun… the adventure."
