    <p>"Let her be a civilian for a while," Larry Rudolph tells Variety. "She's given so much. Give her time."</p> <p>Britney Spears’s longtime manager Larry Rudolph says the singer may never perform again. Speaking to TMZ, Rudolph said, “As the person who guides her career — based on the information I and all of the professionals who work with her are being told on a need-to-know basis — from what I have gathered it’s clear to me she should not be going back to do this Vegas residency, not in the near future and possibly never again.”</p>

    So apparently, the US Civil War was as much about US global imperialism as it was about our unbridled racism. This year's commemoration has been more inclusive of Blacks and has actually found some Whites willing to play The North.

    Britney Spears is celebrating her third #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, coincidentally with her new single "3." Spears debuts in the top spot with her racy new track this week. "3" sold over 255,000 downloads this week to also take #1 on the Hot Digital Songs chart. With the #1 debut of "3," Spears becomes the first artist to debut at #1 on the chart in over three years, when Taylor Hicks debuted with "Do I Make You Proud" in July of 2006. Spears might also become the only non-"Idol" artist to have a #1 debut this decade. (Carrie...

    If at first you don't succeed, try, try again! In the June 29 issue of Star, we exclusively report that after two failed marriages — one that last only 55 hours! — Britney Spears is preparing to walk down the aisle again, this time with her agent turned lover, Jason Trawick. After more than three years of casual hookups, Brit and Jason took their relationship to the next level while they were on vacation in the Bahamas last month. That's when Brit and Jason shared a special night together during which Jason popped the question! "He didn't exactly get down...

    As if Sarah Palin hasn’t been torn apart enough by the media, try this one on for size: Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is the equivalent of Britney Spears. That’s right. Pop culture writer Jed Gottlieb compared the former GOP Vice Presidential candidate to pop icon Britney Spears saying both women are manufactured stars with “baby drama” and a “podunk back story.” Gottlieb’s article “Boston sees just a piece of Britney Spears” appeared in the Boston Herald on March 17, just one day after Spears’ sold out concert at the TD Banknorth Garden Entertainment Arena in Boston. While the article...
  • Could Britney Spears' psychiatrists be undermining her mental health?

    Well folks Britney Spears, the queen of comebacks has done it again. After the previous years' meltdown which lead to her being hospitalized twice at UCLA as well as her being placed under emergency guardianship, Britney Spears is back again like a boomerang. Already there is talks of a movie deal and perhaps another sleazy album. But the road back up has been long and hard and although she is now seeking treatment for "Bipolar" disorder, psychiatrists in charge of her care may be doing more to undermine her mental health than promote it. Britney Spears was incarcerated in UCLA's...

    As if a Rocky Mountain coronation were not lofty enough, Barack Obama will aim for Mount Olympus when he accepts his party's nomination atop an enormous, Greek-columned stage - built by the same cheesy set team that put together Britney Spears' last tour... ..."We've done Britney's sets and a whole bunch of rock shows, but this was far more elaborate and complicated and we had to do it in far less time," said Allen, of RDA Entertainment... ...Asked who is harder to sat isfy - the Democrats or Britney - Allen replied: "I better not answer that."

    Susan Estrich is confused about the latest McCain campaign tactic. Ms. Estrich ran the 1988 Michael Dukakis campaign, so it’s a stunner that she would have a hard time understanding something, but no one can be the master of everything. Let’s clear things up for her. John McCain’s campaign has run an ad equating Barack Obama with Britney Spears and Paris Hilton. This has Ms. Estrich fit to be tied, as she explains in a special commentary for Rasmussen Reports: What does Barack Obama have to do with Britney Spears and Paris Hilton? Absolutely nothing, as far as I can...

    China is to impose stricter rules on foreign rock and pop stars after singer Bjork caused controversy by shouting "Tibet, Tibet" at a Shanghai concert. Her cry followed a powerful performance of her song Declare Independence. Talk of Tibetan independence is considered taboo in China, which has ruled the territory since 1951. China's culture ministry said the outburst "broke Chinese law and hurt Chinese people's feelings" and pledged to "further tighten controls". "We will further tighten controls on foreign artists performing in China in order to prevent similar cases from happening in the future," the ministry said in a statement...

    Afghanistan’s Shame March 7, 2008. Every country has at least one person who will go down in history as an utter disgrace. For Afghanistan, that person is Adnan Ghalib. Why is he a disgrace? Well, for one thing, he impregnated Britney Spears. [I’ll pause while you clear the vomit from your mouth.] The Afghan-Brit, who is occasionally misidentified as Pakistani-Brit, is the paparazzi photographer who has been “dating” Ms. Spears for the last while. Also, there is a war and humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan. But never mind! Who cares? Back to Britney and her Afghan bacha-dost. This led Al Arabiya...

    Britney Spears’s klieg-lighted meltdown sent her to the psychiatric ward twice, and left her long-divorced parents, her brother, and a SWAT team of lawyers and accountants grappling with how to protect her from predatory hangers-on, from the paparazzi who dog her every move and from her own erratic behavior. Beyond the psychodrama being played out on tabloid covers, celebrity-news shows and gossip Web sites is another serious subject for the Spears family: how to protect the millions of dollars that Ms. Spears, 26, has amassed over a decade as one of America’s biggest pop music, merchandise and endorsement engines. It’s...

    NEW YORK: It seems Britney Spears has become a little 'Toxic' -- the pop diva has accused her mother of sharing bed with her new paparazzo boyfriend. Spears, who suffers from bipolar disorder, was rushed to the UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles on Thursday after she took a cocktail of drugs over three sleepless nights. She was sedated after she hurled abuse at medics and mom Lynee, accusing her of "sleeping with my boyfriend", the media quoted hospital sources as saying. The pop princess, a divorcee who is currently dating Birmingham photographer Adnan Ghalib, had earlier alleged that her...
