Just trying to get y’all up to date as quickly as possible so I can get on the road with Britney & keep y’all up with her day by day!
Ok, we’ve completed the Toxic Video now & Britney hops on the next flight out of L.A. for a hometown Christmas in Kentwood! Believe me when I tell you, Lynne goes ALL out & the house honestly looks like a Winter Wonderland! It was so beautifully decorated and the Spirit of Christmas got ya’ the minute you walked thru the door! Britney participated in all the usual Family excitement & traditions. Her favorite gift this year was a necklace that her Mom gave her & Jamie Lynn alike. It was a tiny cross and a tiny heart hanging from a beautiful white gold chain! It was dainty & tiny JUST like Britney likes her jewelry to be!
For a fabulous after-Christmas surprise, Britney took her Mom, Aunt Sandra, Laura Lynn, Jamie Lynn & 2 friends for a Girls Week on the British West Indies Island of Nevis! All this way for some MUCH needed girl time, giggles & relaxation. While on the Island your main mode of transport is a golf cart. (SH….but guess who wrecked hers the first day….NO, not the underage drivers, but Britney herself!! HA)
On an afternoon shopping spree they saw monkeys swinging from the trees, and goats & chickens roaming the streets! Now, talk about a trip highlight (LITERALLY!), Britney had the wild notion that everyone could use a little spiff up & decided to book a spa trip where she insisted they ALL have highlights put in their hair to give it that sunkissed look!! They had a BLAST & looked FABULOUS to boot!
After 5 days of beautiful sunshine, they had to head back to reality & Laura Lynn was missing her puppy Gaby, so home it was!! It was a fantastic trip & the pictures are GREAT! After all, wildlife, sunshine, shopping & all the folks you love around you—who could ask for anything more!!
Now that you’re caught up to 2004, I’ll write next about our trip to Europe to finish promoting the album!! Til next time.
This was added to BritneySpears.com over the weekend (sorry there haven’t been many updates) but it says it was added on February 14th. Confusing stuff…:P
This is also off the new ‘Toxic’ DVD Single I bought today, she just talks about Breathe On Me and I’ve Got That Boom Boom.
MTV has rolled out its first global tour sponsorship in the MTV Presents Britney Spears Onyx Hotel Tour 2004.
Kicking off Tuesday (March 2) at the San Diego Sports Arena, the tour will play more than 25 cities in North America before visiting Europe, Latin America and Asia later this year. MTV’s sponsorship will include a number of on-air, online and onstage components to support Spears as she tours behind her multiplatinum Jive Records release “In the Zone.”
“There are not that many artists that appeal to every territory with an MTV channel, but Britney Spears is one of the select few,” says Joe Armenia, VP of music marketing and promotion for MTV. “We have been waiting for the opportunity to make a global splash, and the Britney tour is it.”
As part of the all-media sponsorship, MTV will be in all advertising and on every ticket throughout the tour, as well as have a presence on-site with interactive promotions and venue signage. In the United States, three episodes of MTV’s “Total Request Live” will be dedicated to behind-the-scenes action on the tour, and tour spots will run worldwide. Mtv.com will feature exclusive downloads, streaming video and ticket and merch auctions benefiting the Britney Spears Foundation.
“For the better part of the rest of the year, we’ll be on the road with Britney,” Armenia says. “This is more support than we’ve ever given an artist in the U.S., let alone all over the world.”
Why Spears? “We love the association with Britney; she has always been a core part of this channel,” Armenia says. “And our fans love Britney.”
