  • Britney Spears planning 'small, traditional country wedding' to fiancé Jason Trawick

    01/01/2012 7:32:03 AM PST · by Perdogg · 44 replies
    Her first wedding was a ripped jeans and baseball cap affair in Vegas, and her LA wedding to Kevin Federline had to be moved up because of the media circus surrounding the nuptials. So for her third time down the aisle, Britney Spears is hoping, understandably, for a low-key, traditional affair. The 30-year-old singer is alleged to be planning a traditional, Southern-style country wedding to fiancé Jason Trawick, 40
  • Britney Spears turns 30: A timeline of the singer's life in video

    12/03/2011 7:10:51 PM PST · by Perdogg · 26 replies
    Britney Spears turns 30 today. Which means the singer can finally close the book on her 20s -- that turbulent decade that saw her start as one of the biggest pop stars in the world, then hurtle through a nightmare progression of breakdowns, marriages, divorces, hospitalizations, a disastrous MTV VMA performance, a head-shaving incident and the loss of custody of her children. What has happened to Spears over the course of the last decade is enough to fill a book the size of a Dickens novel. Unless you've been a regular reader of the gossip sites, you may have missed...

    The video for her new single Hold It Against Me debuted just last week but Britney Spears and the first song from her new album has certainly made an impact, although perhaps not in the way she was hoping for. In fact, the 29-year-old singer is being accused of plagiarism and is facing a multi-million dollar lawsuit. Britney is accused of ‘ripping off’ the rock ballad If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me by the Bellamy Brothers.

    A former bodyguard for pop star Britney Spears has filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against her. Fernando Flores has accused the singer of repeatedly parading around in the nude and having sex in front of him. Mr Flores also claims Ms Spears caused him emotional distress by having violent quarrels with her boyfriend in front of her two children. The singer's lawyer did not comment. A lawyer for her ex-husband, Kevin Federline, called the case "baseless". According to papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Mr Flores alleges that Spears made repeated, unwanted sexual advances and summoned him to her...

    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...

    This week ABC News sent Twitter all atwitter with a photo of Britney Spears sporting a Star of David necklace. Has the pop star, asked ABC, converted to Judaism? The comeback queen has had a variety of religious dabblings over the years, including Kabbalah and Hinduism, despite her Baptist roots. But this sighting has fueled Internet rumors that Spears may be engaged to her latest and, perhaps, most wholesome boyfriend, Jason Trawick, who happens to be Jewish. My answer is: doubtful. Conversion to Judaism is a long affair: many months, if not years of study, work with a teacher or...

The Toxic singer returned to the capital following a single gig at the MEN Arena before heading off to Dublin to continue her Circus tour.

    Humanity could soon be wiped out by couple of Mexican pigs with the sniffles. But relax, Britney Spears is on it. If Ryan Seacrest is right, then Britney Spears plans to repopulate the planet in her image - she’s apparently pregnant again. This means, in years to come, Britney Spears will be seen as Earth’s new Eve figure - identical to the old Eve but with worse skin, madder eyes and, somehow, even fewer clothes

    LA Times ^ | December 2, 2008 | By MARY McNAMARA, Television Critic
    There are so many things to like about Britney Spears -- she's so darn pretty for one thing, even when she's chewing gum, which is still pretty much all the time. She's got the same sort of mile-wide smile and joyous laugh that made Julia Roberts a big star. She sings pretty well for a pop star, and she moves her butt like no one's business. But even after more than a decade in the business, she seems disturbingly stalled in adolescence. Those tuning into "Britney: For the Record" on MTV Sunday in search of a sadder but wiser Brit...

    BATON ROUGE, La. - Another Spears baby is reportedly on the way — and it's not Britney's. Jamie Lynn Spears, the 16-year-old "Zoey 101" star and sister of Britney, told OK! magazine that she's pregnant and that the father is her boyfriend, Casey Aldridge. "It was a shock for both of us, so unexpected," she said. "I was in complete and total shock and so was he." Spears is 12 weeks along and initially kept the news to herself when she learned of the pregnancy from an at-home test and subsequent doctor visit, she told the celebrity magazine, which hits...

    Dr. Phil's planned sitdown Monday with Britney Spears' parents dissolved into accusations he was exploiting the troubled singer's emotional crackup. The TV shrink insisted he canceled the taping with Jamie and Lynne Spears "because the Spears situation is too intense at this time, and out of consideration to the family." A source close to Dr. Phil McGraw said it was Britney's parents who cut him off, furious he blabbed about her mental state after visiting her in the psych ward at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. "As soon as Jamie realized Dr.Phil was making public statements about Britney,...
