Britney Painting eBay Auction Launches

As I mentioned yesterday, the Spears family, who wanted fans to have the first look, is auctioning off an autographed 4x5 ft. oil painting by Daniel Maltzman on eBay with proceeds benefiting The Promises Foundation, an organization that provides behavioral health services to low-income women and their children.

In a written statement verifying it's authenticity, dad Jamie Spears says:


"I hereby verify that the portrait of my daughter, Britney, has been in our home since it was completed by the Daniel Maltzman Studio. I also authenticate that it is Britney's original signature on the painting.

Jamie Spears"

The bidding starts at a pricey $10,000. Happy bidding!

Jamie Lynn & Lynne Arrive In L.A.

Britney Spears' 17-year-old sister, Jamie Lynn, arrived in LA on Wednesday, September 10, along with her nearly 3-month-old daughter Maddie Briann, and headed straight to Britney's house.

Britney's former husband Kevin Federline was at Britney's house when Jamie Lynn arrived; he had come to pick up the toddlers, (b. September 14, 2005) and Jayden James (b. September 12, 2006), after a visitation, and perhaps help Britney plan their birthday party.

According to x17, Kevin and Britney were inside the house alone for nearly 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, Britney took part in a photo shoot by French born fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier at her Bel Air residence earlier on Wednesday.

It is likely the 26-year-old pop star, who has made a dramatic comeback from a tail spinning lifestyle, will feature on the cover of a magazine.

Britney recently told OK! magazine that her new album will be released by late December.
"It's my best work ever," she said proudly.

Keri Hilson On Britney

After writing four songs for Spears' Blackout, Hilson developed a nickname for Britney: "One-Take Jake." "With Britney, I need to get as much of any song done as I can [before she enters the studio]," says Hilson. "She likes to record quickly, partly because she doesn't like to stand up for too long."

Britney Spears Is Not In Vogue

The following italicized article is from

Reports of Britney Spears appearing on an upcoming issue of Vogue have been greatly exaggerated.

In fact, it ain't happenin' at all!

So what gives?

The confusion began this morning when gossiper Liz Smith reported that "Vogue's celebrated Patrick Demarchelier has come to the U.S. from London to photograph Britney Spears."

Sure he shoots for Vogue, but Spears must be posing for another magazine, a source tells me.

Spears' first and only appearance on a Vogue cover was back in November 2001 for an issue dedicated to American fashion (it hit stands just weeks after Sept. 11). The issue was a flop, according to the source.

Editor-in-chief Anna Wintour "will never put her on the cover again," the source says. "She's just not a Vogue kind of girl."

No matter because Ms. Spears is still a hot commodity. And no doubt there are plenty of other editors doing backflips and more to get the comeback pop princess on their covers.

See ya on the newstand, Brit!

Britney Poses Pretty Preparing For December Album Release!

The following italicized article is from

Britney Spears was back to work yesterday posing at a shoot with Vogue photographer Patrick Demarchelier in Beverly Hills after which she rewarded herself with dinner at Magnolia. If the pictures end up in the magazine, it should line up with the rumored December release of Britney's star-studded new album. That will make it almost a year since the worst of her breakdown — thankfully she has come so far and the biggest headlines about the singer are about her VMA wins and planning a joint birthday bash for her boys who were born two days apart in September. Even the press about Lynne Spears's controversial revealing new book has become more positive.

Talk About Fan Dedication

Lynne Spears: 'Every Mother Makes Mistakes'

The following italicized article is from

Lynne Spears says that even knowing what she knows now, she would still let her daughters Britney and Jamie Lynn pursue stardom.

"I think you have to let them follow their dreams," she says in a new interview with PEOPLE. "I think it would be worse in the end if you didn't."

But she does express regrets about not listening to her "gut" at times: "Was I the perfect mom? No."

In an exclusive excerpt from her new memoir, Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World, Lynne, 53, details the highs – and lows – of her family's journey from Kentwood, La., to the harsh international spotlight. "Every mother makes mistakes," she writes, "and I'm no different."

"I wanted the truth out in my own words for myself and my family," she tells PEOPLE of writing the book, which chronicles Britney's highly publicized troubles and Jamie Lynn's pregnancy at 16. The latter, says Lynne, "was probably the hardest time in my life."

What do her kids – Britney, 26, Jamie Lynn, 17, and Bryan, 31 – think of the book?

She says Britney and Bryan have yet to read it, but "Jamie Lynn loved the book. I started to cry because I told her, 'I wanted so much for you to like it.' And she got up and kissed me on the cheek and said, 'Mama, thank you so much.'"

Lynne's once-troubled relationship with Britney "has undergone tremendous healing," she says. "We are back to four or five phone calls a day."

These days Lynne is also a doting "Me Maw" to her grandsons Preston, 3, and Jayden, 2, and granddaughter Maddie Briann, 2 months. Of Britney's boys, she says, "They are the cutest! The biggest personalities you've ever seen. Preston is the older brother and he's protective, but Jayden is tough as nails."

For more on this story, including Lynne's memories of Britney's early career and her hopes for Jamie Lynn's wedding, pick up the new issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday

OK! Cover Story: Britney's Back!

The following italicized article is from

On Sept. 7, Britney Spears faced the world from the stage at MTV's 2008 VMA awards, clear-eyed, fit and confident, one year after her disastrous performance at the 2007 awards show.

After beating out fierce competitors in all three of the categories she was nominated in (Best Female Video, Best Pop Video and Video of the Year) Britney not only captured her Moonmen, she proved to the world that she's back.

But winning the acceptance and applause of her peers is only one of the battles Britney is waging.

Her next album, which OK! can exclusively reveal will be released by late December, has to be a monster hit to sustain her comeback, and all signs indicate that it will deliver.

“It’s my best work ever,” Britney proudly told OK!.

Even more important in Britney’s battle is her effort to win joint custody of her sons, Preston and Jayden, from her ex-husband Kevin Federline.

“Her goal is to regain joint custody of her sons as soon as her dad Jamie’s status as her conservator ends,” a Spears insider tells OK!.

But before then, Britney has some other planning to do — party planning that is! As the proud mom told OK! during our exclusive interview, she is organizing a joint affair for her sons to celebrate Jayden’s second birthday on Sept. 12 and Preston’s third birthday on Sept. 14, with the help of her father.

“I want to have a traditional party,” she told OK!. “I have some friends with kids who I am going to invite."

Her mom, Lynne Spears, has also been making headlines with her new book titled Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World. Although gossip blogs buzzed over supposed scandalous details in the memoir, the book is more about Lynne's experience as a mother through Britney's tough times, as the Associated Press reported.

“Regardless of what people might think, Britney isn’t upset about the book,” an insider tells OK!. “After a tough last year, Brit and Lynne have a wonderful relationship again.”
