Britney Spears Prepping ‘Blackout’ Follow Up

The following italicized article is from

Her latest album, “Blackout,” isn’t yet a year old, but already Britney Spears is working on recording the follow up.

Before she traveled to Kentwood, Louisiana, earlier this week to be by the side of her teen sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, who gave birth on Thursday, Britney was hitting the studio with Jim Beanz, the producer told Us Weekly.

“Britney is amazing,” Beanz told Us.

Though Britney continues to battle things out in the courtroom over her child custody issues and the conservatorship she is under, none of the drama plays out when the two are working, according to Beanz.

“Everyone has personal stuff, but a true professional doesn’t bring it into the studio,” he said.

Britney And Bryan Spears Emerge In Kentwood, LA

Yesterday was the glorious day that a new member of the Spears family was brought forth into the world and, natch, all members of the Spears family rallied around young Jamie Lynn Spears to lend their support as she birthed her baby. TMZ reports that altho all immediate members of the Spears family were on hand at the hospital at the time of baby Maddie Briann’s birth, only Grandmama Lynne Spears was in the operating room with JL as she gave birth. They also report that new Papa Casey Aldridge was so nervous about holding his newborn daughter that he feared he’d drop her. Ain’t that precious? Anyways, both Britney and Bryan Spears were at the hospital for the birth of Maddie Briann … but shortly after the baby was born they each made a beeline for the convenience store to pick up snacks (or chewin’ tobacco? It’s unclear).

Life and Style magazine reports that Grandpappy Jamie Spears gave them a quote after Maddie Briann was born (When asked how he feels about the new addition to the family, the new grandpa tells Life & Style, “We’re thrilled, we’re all absolutely thrilled.”) and also report the baby was born around 8am by C-section. People magazine, on the other hand, got quotes from other, more removed, members of the Spears & Aldridge families, friends and townfolk:

Jamie Lynn Spears’s hometown of Kentwood, La., was buzzing with the news she gave birth, with friends and relatives expressing surprise, relief and confidence the 17-year-old will be a good mother. “She’s awfully young to be a momma,” says distant cousin Margie Busby. “But that’s what they make [grandmothers] for. They have to help. That’s the way it is with our circle of friends.” Second cousin Janet Bridges acknowledges, “I didn’t even know she had the baby,” but gives a thumbs up to the baby girl’s name. “Ooh, I like ‘Maddie,’” says Bridges. The birth was the talk of Kentwood. “I’m really happy for her and her family,” says Jennifer Pike, who works at the corner store where the Spears family often shops. “There will probably be some rough times and some bumpy times, but I wish the best for her. I wish her all the luck in the world.” “We’re so excited for her,” a family friend tells PEOPLE. “She’ll be a great mom. She’ll be awesome.” Adds another friend, “She was so excited about having this child. (She was) looking forward to it so much.” The days have passed slowly for Spears and fiancĂ© Casey Aldridge, who had finished preparing for the baby a few weeks ago. “It seemed like this day would never come,” says a cousin of Aldridge. “They’ve been getting ready, but everything was pretty much done by last month. So they just had to wait.”

As you may imagine, Britney Spears talked to no one. We’ll prolly have to wait until the OK! magazine coverstory on the birth of Maddie Briann comes out to get any decent inside information from the core Spears family … and that is fine by me. I hope Jamie Lynn and Casey are able to enjoy the first days and weeks with their newborn daughter without having to deal with the press or the paps. They must be insanely relieved that their baby has arrived at long last … I hope they are able to take the time to enjoy their new family away from prying eyes.

Britney Spears' Mom Tells Court: She "Intends to Return to Louisiana"

The following italicized article is from

Britney Spears "intends to return to Louisiana," her mom Lynne says in a declaration to the L.A. Superior Court filed Tuesday obtained by

"Britney has spent a majority of her time over the last five years in the state of California due in part to work but primarily with respect to a custody dispute currently ongoing," Lynne explains.

Britney's ex Kevin Federline has primary custody of their two young children, Jayden James and Sean Preston.

At Tuesday's hearing, the court commissioner granted Britney's father Jamie permission to sell the singer's six-bedroom home in Beverly Hills, CA. (Because her father is her co-conservator, the decision to sell the home required a court's approval.)

Though she has spent most of her time in Beverly Hills, Britney has owned a home in their hometown of Kentwood, Louisiana for the past eight years.

Britney and Jamie flew to Kentwood Wednesday for the birth of Britney's younger sister Jamie Lynn's baby, Maddie Briann, Thursday.
