From Blind Gossip:
Which troubled pop star flew to Las Vegas on the pretense of business, but really hit Sin City with the hopes of reuniting with her first true love? The only hitch is that the famous exes are both engaged – to other people!
So we all know how much Britney just loves her some Las Vegas. And we also know that Justin recently spent his faux-bachelor party there, under the watchful eye of Jessica Biel. Also, as far as “troubled” pop stars go, can anyone think of anyone more troubled than Britney? Rihanna comes to mind, of course, but Rihanna’s not engaged to anyone—neither is Chris Brown. But Britney? Well. She is. And so’s Justin.
Do I think there’s a chance in hell of this happening? No f-cking way. But hey. It makes for a good story, huh?
Let’s keep in mind that this was the last thing Justin’s ever said about Britney:
“We were two birds of the same feather—small-town kids, doing the same thing. But then you become adults, and the way you were as kids doesn’t make any sense. I won’t speak on her, but at least for me, I was a totally different person. I just don’t think we were normal; there was nothing normal about our existence. We spent way too much time being the biggest thing for teenyboppers.”
And this was the last thing Britney ever said about Justin:
“I’m still hurting but I am trying to see it as an experience. The worst thing is everyone wants to talk to me about it. Everywhere I go people are asking how I am. I am the type of person who can’t go from a serious relationship and then just start dating someone else straight away. It’s a strange feeling getting used to being single again but I suppose I’ll have to cope. I’m just starting to get the knack of it because ever since I was 15 I’ve been in a serious relationship.”
So. Wonder if Britney is still hurting after all these years—hurting enough to want to put the moves on Justin a decade later?

Ok, so how sick is Britney Spears? For real, let’s talk about this. She’s getting married, and she’s currently a judge on one of the biggest reality shows in the country. She’s doing big interviews, she’s spending time with her kids. But at the same time, “her cell phone and internet use is restricted and heavily monitored.” What’s that about?
But really, that’s what this story is about. Britney shares a phone with her fiancé, and it’s “routinely checked to see who has been calling.” Certain sites are blocked on her computer so she can’t see any “negative stories” that might upset her (I’m guessing gossip blogs and the like, but they could have every dark and scary corner of the internet blocked too, you never can tell). A lot of these restrictions have been set up so that the ultimate shademeister in Britney’s life, Sam Lufti, can’t contact her.
I don’t know, I just think that Britney should be a woman capable of making her own choices and taking control of her own life or she should just not. I don’t understand how she’s able to get married and work if she’s not allowed to have her own cell phone. It feels weird and creepy and exploitative. She shouldn’t be able to make money for everyone if she’s too ill to look at the internet. Is that fair to say?

Sam Lutfi — the self-proclaimed manager of Britney Spears who is suing her for defamation — claims in new legal docs a drug-sniffing dog found a cache of crystal meth in her home.
The allegations were filed in connection with the upcoming trial. Lutfi claims Britney, along with her parents Lynn and Jamie — defamed him by saying he drugged the singer during her dark period.
In the docs, Lutfi talks about what he would want Britney to testify about. As of now, she will not take the stand because a judge has found she is not competent to testify as a result of the conservatorship.
Lutfi says in the docs Britney should testify about an incident in 2007 …. he claims he “brought drug-sniffing dogs into her home … and they found a cache of crystal methedrine, which was destroyed.”
Lutfi goes on … “Britney should further testify that drug dogs found ‘hot spots of drug residue in the carpeting, where her young sons [ages 1 and 3] played during visits.”
Lutfi says he covered it up by shampooing and eventually replacing the carpet.
Lutfi also claims Britney told him her dad Jamie “was a violent racist,” and an abusive alcoholic.
Is it reaching? Probably. Is it plausible, however? Absolutely. Don’t you remember the funk that Britney had all on her face during that Sam Lutfi-Adnan Ghalib business? Because it was all pretty rank. I’m not going to say that Britney had absolutely nothing to do with meth, but I’m also not going to say that she had absolutely everything to do with meth, either. Because there was probably some cocaine thrown in for good measure, too.

From the Daily Mail via Us Magazine:
The Hold It Against Me hitmaker’s team have banned alcohol from backstage, and have made sure she will not be sent any as a gift.
According to USMagazine.com, Britney’s representatives said in a note: “Very important. We require you to empty minibars of all alcohol. “And no gifts of wine or any other alcoholic beverages, please.”
Drink is not the only thing the 30-year-old is believed to have banned from the show – pretty women are also not allowed backstage.
A source said recently: “Britney has stipulated that none of the backstage staff working with her are too pretty or stylish.”
So. What, is Britney a raging alcoholic-in-recovery who also has a nasty set of self-esteem issues? Because running from your problems never really solves them, unless you’re running from booze. And then I guess that’d work out OK, but pretty girls? Come on. There’s going to be pretty girls all up in Britney’s face for the rest of her days on this earth, right? I know girlfriend’s got her problems and stuff, but there’s got to be a line drawn somewhere between rehabilitation and crisis management, and coddling and encouraging silly behavior.
Also, can we take a look at some photos that might give us some kind of clue as to why Britney (heavy medications aside) shouldn’t be drinking, ever? We probably should. Just so we remember, if we ever happen to run into Britney in a corner bar or somewhere, do not buy this lady a drink.

I didn’t watch X Factor last night. How horrible, right? It was Britney‘s first night, and I wanted to support her, I really did, but it just didn’t happen. My apology letter is in the mail right now, ok? If Britney will forgive me, than so can you.
But since I didn’t watch it, I set out this morning to find a whole bunch of clips so that I’d be able to tell you guys all about it and how Britney’s doing and if Demi Lovato was doing something stupid with her hair again or whatever. But this was the first clip that I watched. And I can’t do it anymore.
First of all, you guys remember Don Philip, right? He did this song with Britney, from her first album:
Ok, now watch the X Factor video again. Am I the only one crying? Because I’m crying, like, a lot. Just thinking about what poor Don has apparently went through, and knowing what Britney’s been through and also thinking about how I’m pretty sure my wisdom teeth are finally coming in and it hurts is just really doing a number on me. How are you guys feeling right about now?

So Britney did a recent interview with Elle magazine (with Jason Trawick—apparently one of the caveats in her conservatorship states that she can’t do interviews alone, I guess), and in it, she talked about her relationship, her sense of style, and not caring about what other people have to say about her, among other things.
Jason Trawick tells ELLE Britney made the first move in their relationship: “It was kind of one of those things where she moved, like, turned around, so we were face-to-face, and then-” Britney’s response? “Okay, that’s enough information, sweetie. It was sweet, just say that.”
OK, on the real, I think if I were in close proximity to Britney, and she “moved, like, turned around” so that we were face-to-face also, I would be really, really scared. I’m just being honest, here. The way Jason says that makes it sound like she was this creepy, venomous snake getting ready to feed or something, and honestly, it kind of paints a scary picture.
Anyway, here’s Britney on her fashion sense and style:
“I love my jeans and my sweats-I’m really just a tomboy at heart. So it’s really hard for me to be like Kim Kardashian and be makeup- and hair-ready every time I go out of my house. I’m not a believer in that, you know? On the other hand, when you do wear those sweats, you’re like, Oh God, I should step it up a notch.”
And finally, on those pesky rumors that she’s not the Britney that we see on TV:
“I guess I’ve been under the microscope so long that I don’t even pay attention to the nonsense anymore. I gave up getting upset about things people make up about me a long time ago.”
On the whole, cute interview. And this photo? This one right here?:
