The following video shows some super sweet clips of Britney's new tour. I didn't buy tix to the show and now I almost wish I had. I'm not a huge fan of the gal but I know she can put on a show. Watch. xx.
Britney Spears is back on the performance scene promoting her new album CIRCUS. She looks absolutely amazing but damn...she has completely carbon copied Madonna's latest incarnation 100%. Check out both diva's looks below - you agree? Ummm yeah. I do, too. While I'm disappointed that dear Britney still chooses to NEVER sing a note live, I'm glad that she is back in the spotlight doing such groovy and interesting stage shows. I'm still thinking about heading to Good Morning America this week to see Britney live. It would be a shame to miss out on a free show that is just a few blocks from my apartment. If I do go, you'll be the first to know. xx.
Despite reports that Britney Spears would NOT be performing during the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, a new video has leaked to the web showing Britney performing an unheard song with a troupe of dancers which is adding fuel to the VMA fire. It has been confirmed that she'll appear on the show but it has been reported that she would not be performing but rather just playing a part in the opening. In a statement released to MTV, Britney said that "MTV has long played an important role in my career. How can I not be there to kick off their 25th VMAs? I'm excited to open the entire show, to say hi to my fans and to be nominated." Could this video be a sneak peek at an upcoming single or video she is preparing or could the VMA rumors be true after all? Regardless, Britney's moves are solid in the clip below. It's good to have her back. I'll guess we'll have to see tomorrow night, when the show is broadcast, what she has in store. xox.
Britney Spears, who may or may not be planning to revisit the MTV Video Music Awards this year as a performer, is appearing in promotional clips for the big awards show that takes place in September. She appears aside English entertainer Russel Brand. The clips are quite cute. They show an endearing and surprisingly fully functional Spears. I hope the rumors are true. After all the ridiculous drama that has filled her life over the past few years, I'm ready for a proper Brit Brit comeback. Are you?? Oh and I love how in the clips below the duo fail to mention that certain something in the room. Brilliant. xox.
So it seems that dear Britney was put back on psychiatric lock down again last night. I'm not going to get in to any of the details being reported all over the web. It's very likely that most of it is pure speculation but I thought I would post a little video of Britney taken this week. I was going to post this anyway because it's just so weird but with the news of her going back to the loony bin, I thought it was more apt than ever. You may or may not have heard that Britney has been speaking in a British accent recently. It's not so much British as a combination of squeaks and squawks mixed with a Southern drawl coupled with some Mary Poppins goodness. I thought she only did this "voice" every once in a while but girlfriend does it ALL THE TIME. The video was taken of Britney in a screaming match with her manager bag holder Osama "Sam" Lufti. Just watching the video you'll understand that Britters was running fast towards being committed. There are so many things wrong with this video. I hope this is the beginning of a fresh start with dear Britney. I've learned to not get my hopes up, sadly. We shall see.
"I remember the tunnel as it appeared on the news, lit by headlights, flashlights, red lights. Between the cement tall pillars was a heap of twisted metal. I saw it then, and I can see it now. Diana dead.
She will be trying to get away, but they will chase her, just as they chased her into that church yesterday. There were dozens of them, jostling their way into sanctuary, elbowing past each other, just to creep closer to her. Even her last-minute, folded-hand prayers can’t be kept sacred. There can be no silent moments in a crowd; no silence, and no secrets.
All this fresh, painful frailty costs her so much, but it lines their pockets very well. A kings ransom was paid for those tabloid-ready cheap shots of her with messy hair, tear-soaked eyes, and the half-smile of a desperate baby girl.
“I’m scared,” she told them yesterday, when they later mobbed her at court. “Move back,” she said. “I’m scared. Stop it. Stop it. I want to get back in the car. Just stop it. Let me get in the car, please.”
Sometimes it really is too much. Internal wires cross. Anxiety hits. Panic sets in the heart. Dread. Fear.
But she asked for it, she’s a public figure.
At eight years old, she bravely stood before a microphone. By 17, she had sold 25 million records. Where were the sidewalk-skinned knees, the chalk stained hands, the monkey bars, the passed notes? A Disney set is not a childhood, no matter how many bright colors they use, or how cheerful the script.
Not a girl, barely even a woman yet, they chased her. A mob of stalkers for whom no stalking laws have been written. Smother. Crush. Flash. Photo Credit. Even Dr. “Get Real” Phil got in on the action. Unreal.
83 million albums sold so far. How many pictures?
The tunnel is crowded now. There are only inches of separation between vulnerability and disaster."
- Rosie's statement on lil' Brit Brit posted today on her blog.
So unless you are living in a cave, it's no news that last night Britney went a little bonkers, held her child hostage in a room in her home and was later apprehended and taken to Cedars Sinai Hospital for medical psychological treatment. There are times when you wanna make jokes and speculate on what in the hell is going on with our dear Britney Spears. There are other times when it's best to sit back and let someone who does it so well cover it for you. :-) ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

What Was Britney On Last Night, Anyway?
Answer: We don't know! But will that stop us from guessing? Never! Our diagnosis:
WAS IT ACETAMINOPHEN? We know for a fact that Britney has two little headaches running around all day, so no doubt she probably pops a Tylenol now and then. Howevs, side effects don't normally include an overwhelming desire to prevent bodyguards from taking back custody of your children. We're going with NO.
WAS IT POT? Anyone who's seen Britney knows her fingers are oft-laced with Cheedle [Ed. Note - Rich Hall, where art thou?]. And, obvs, we've all seen this video. But we think that her grass-smoking days stopped when K. Fed exited stage left. Hence, we're going with NO.
WAS IT ECSTASY? Hmmm, she was spotted smiling in the ambulance. And E -- do the kids still call it that? -- does make you smile a lot. But then again, there were no reports of lollipops spilling out of her pockets or any odd requests for the ambulance driver to play some Oakenfold. We're going with NO.
WAS IT COCAINE? According to PageSix.com, she locked herself in her bathroom when authorities arrived. What could she have been doing in there? From our experiences dealing with people with the sniffles, they do go to the bathroom a lot. But when they come out, they don't go "completely psycho", they just talk a lot faster. So we're gonna go with NO to blow.
WAS SHE SOBER? If you are prone to read the bargain basement glossies like Life & Style, you might believe she wasn't on anything at all. Call us crazy, but we're also going with NO on that one.

Thank you, Gawker.com - You rock as a rule. I don't know what to think about all this! What I do know is that Brit Brit has kicked off the year with a BANG! Sadly, her life is 100 times more entertaining than anything she has ever done on stage. Is there a way back home? We shall see.
