With numerous legal affairs on her plate, Britney Spears took a break from it all by going back to her usual weekend routine.
The troubled pop tart started off her Saturday with a trip to the local tanning salon. Followed by a horde of paparazzi, the Gimme More singer, who was accompanied by Alli Sims, then made her way to the GAP.
As if she needed another reason to move closer to the courthouse, Britney Spears is getting sued again. This time it’s her former manager, Johnny Wright, who is taking the “Gimme More” singer to court.
Spears and Wright ended their business relationship back in 2003, but Johnny says that he set up deals for Brit through 2008 that he’s yet to see the commissions for. According to Wright, Brit stopped paying him almost a year ago.
In light of the prolonged media lambasting of her character, Britney Spears appeared on Ryan Seacrest’s morning radio show today to promote her new album and set the record straight.
The “Gimme More” singer talked about her frustration with public perception, and constant scrutiny. "People say what they want and do what they do. Its sad how people ... how cruel our world can be. But at the end of the day you gotta to know in your heart that you are doing the best that you can."
While 2007 may have been the longest/worst year of Britney Spears’ entire life, that may all be about to change. Today marks the release of “Blackout,” her new album that has critics and fans alike singing her praises.
According to Rolling Stone’s Joe Levy, the new album is “state of the art. One of the problems for Britney right now is the public is more focused on her personal life than her music. This record is an opportunity to change that."
Already on the schedule for a Mother’s Day 2008 release is the new book from Britney Spears’ mom, entitled “Pop Culture Mom: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World.” And from what we’re hearing it just may be worth the read.
Lynne Spears has been contracted by Thomas Nelson Publishers for the project, being described as “a parenting book that’s going to have faith elements to it. It’s Lynne’s personal story of raising high-profile children while coming from a low-profile Louisiana community.”
