Blender Reviews The "Piece Of Me" Music Video

Written by admin. Posted in Comeback

Britney is not back. But she looks more like America’s favorite oversexed scamp here than she has in recent memory. At the very least, this is an actual music video (we’re still not sure what “Gimme More” was/is/will be).

The sharp, tongue-in-cheek song about stalkerazzi doesn’t it take itself too seriously and neither does this clip: Brit seems more than comfortable dancing the fishbowl angst away. (Granted, it still seems like she’s dancing to the monkey-drummer in her head instead of the beat during some of those silver-jacketed solo shots.) But when she whips her extensions around and fans herself while flanked by a set of dancers, we can almost see the “Slave 4 U” Britney peeking through all the drama. Almost.

Next Custody Hearing To Be Held In February

Written by admin. Posted in Custody Battle

Lawyers faced off again this morning in the seemingly neverending custody war between Britney Spears and Kevin Federline. However, after several hours of closed-door chatting with the judge, it appears it was all for nothing.

When asked by OK! if there had been any developments in today’s session, Britney’s lawyer Sorrell Trope revealed, “nothing… only a continuance.” So apparently all the huffing and puffing in the judge’s chamber was just to move the scheduled Jan. 23 hearing a few weeks later to Feb. 19. K-Fed’s attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, tells OK! that the extra time is to allow him more time for discovery, which means more time to depose witnesses in the case.

Following today’s hearing, Kaplan spoke to OK!, confirming that the court has re-affirmed its order for Britney to be deposed, though he declined to comment on a date.
Last week, the troubled pop star, claiming illness and “anxiety,” skipped out on a court-ordered depo at Kaplan’s office. “It’s not like it’s the fourth grade, where you get a doctor’s note and it’s all okay,” Kaplan said afterward.

TMZ Subpoenaed In Ongoing Custody Battle

Written by admin. Posted in Custody Battle

TMZ received a subpoena late yesterday in the Britney Spears case.

K-Daddy’s lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, served papers on TMZ late yesterday, asking for the video we shot of Brit the same day she was a no show for her deposition. That same night, we shot Brit at two gas stations and at the Four Seasons Hotel.

We’re told Brit’s reason for not showing for the depo was that she was sick with anxiety. Ding dang, her recovery was a miracle!

We believe Kaplan will ask the judge to deny Britney the right to change the custody order until she sits for her depo. We’re told he will ask that all of Brit’s requests (including a change in custody and the right to drive her kids again) should not be heard in January as scheduled. Kaplan wants everything delayed until April.

Wayne Isham Talks About Working With Britney

Written by admin. Posted in Comeback, Personal Issues

After last week’s preview of Britney Spears’s new video, “Piece of Me,” its producer, Wayne Isham, is now offering some insight into what it was like to work with her on it.

Spears gets nothing but high marks, according to the producer, whose credits include videos for Madonna, Metallica, Faith Hill and ‘N Sync.

“On set,” says Isham of Spears, “she was very professional, excited to work and beautiful as always. I was impressed with her focus as she choreographed the dance herself. Her endurance was remarkable, as we had a long day.”

He adds, “She almost outlasted me, which is amazing! It was a pleasure to work with her again.”

The video is intended as a broadside against the paparazzi. It features the pop star, 26, in a black bra and ripped jeans, alternating a short cropped fur vest with a longer white fur coat, and singing about the photographers who hound her day and night.

As Spears writhes in front of a multicolored display, photographers are seen jostling below a lighted window, snapping pics of a band of Britney look-alikes who are dressing for a night out.
