Britney Going Back To The Recording Studio Already

Written by admin. Posted in Comeback

Her latest album “Blackout” has only been out 6 weeks, but Britney is already heading back into the recording booth!

Britney was pretty angry the other night, after the paparazzi bust-up. She went into the bathroom at a gas station and started shouting down the phone at someone.

The most important detail recorded from the conversation was that Britney said, “you’re not listening to me! I said I want THAT studio.”

It sounds like she mentions “Conway” too, which is the name of the studio she used to record a lot of her last album “In The Zone.”

This news comes as it was revealed that there would be a re-release of “Blackout” in the new year. She has also scheduled rehearsals at Millenium Dance Complex, which she later cancelled due to media attention.

Britney Goes On A Wild Date With A Paparazzo

Britney Spears love-hate relationship with the paparazzi took a bizarre twist last night as she went on a wild date with a photographer.

The erratic former pop princess was seen holding hands with the snapper after calling him up on his mobile phone and jumping into his car.

The ‘Toxic’ hit-maker – dressed in a pink wig – took a shine to the snapper – known as Adnan – after he slipped her a business card.

The star was believed to be partying with the photographer at a Hollywood hotel into the early hours of the morning (Sunday). Her bizarre behaviour comes in the middle of the star’s custody battle to get her children back from ex-husband Kevin Federline.

The strange night began with Britney getting a bite to eat at popular Greek restaurant Taverna Tony’s in Malibu.

A source said: “The night’s events started when Britney left her Hollywood Hills hideaway and headed towards Malibu. “When she arrived in Malibu Britney pulled over and asked for a photographer called Phillipe. When he arrived she whispered to him that her assistant liked him.

“Britney then asked where his friend Adnan was to which he replied, ‘He is not working tonight.’ So Britney asked him to contact Adnan for her.”

The snapper quickly called his friend who rushed to the restaurant in the hope of a double date.

The source added: “After two hours eating she left Malibu, paying no attention to Adnan, and headed to Hollywood where she drove aimlessly for one hour before stopping at a restroom because she was feeling sick. “After leaving the bathroom Adnan caught up with her and slipped her his business card.

“She called him a number of times from her car but because he didn’t know her phone number he was not answering the phone.

“Finally Britney got frustrated and pulled up alongside him to ask why he wasn’t answering her calls.

“After a short conversation she jumped in his car and they drove off together.

“They stopped off at another petrol station and a supermarket apparently looking for another restroom so she could make a pitstop.

“They then headed back towards her Hollywood Hills house.”

After discussing the possibility of him going to her house she said that her house was too dirty and that she would rather go to a hotel, according to the source. “So they changed cars and she went back to her house to freshen up while Adnan parked down the road and waited for her. She then came out in her car and they both drove to an LA hotel.”

Cameras caught the star – wearing a leopard print dress and ripped fishnet tights – arriving at The Peninsula Hotel in Beverley Hills hand in hand with the photographer.

Britney Cancels Dancing Session At Millenium Dance Studio

Written by admin. Posted in Personal Issues

Things are even more hectic than usual for Britney Spears. On Thursday, after spending a cozy afternoon at her Beverly Hills home with sons Preston, 2, and Jayden, 1, the singer scheduled – then cancelled – a session at Millennium Dance Complex.

“She wanted to try out a new dance routine,” says a source. But, in the wake of her 16-year-old sister’s surprise pregnancy announcement, the studio was swarmed by hoards of photographers.

When Spears, 26 – who had been kept in the dark about the baby news until the story broke on Tuesday – saw the crowd, “she freaked out and just kept driving,” says the source, who was on the scene.

“Britney said that she doesn’t want to deal with the media because she is still shocked [about Jamie Lynn’s pregnancy news],” adds the source. “She feels that she needs peace and quiet.”
