Congressman Attends Britney Spears Concert Instead Of Obama Press Conference!

The following italicized article is from

One congressman voted for Britney Spears on Tuesday night.

Washington, D.C. gossip blog Wonkette reported on Wednesday that House Republican Whip Eric Cantor spent the evening at the pop princess’ concert at the Verizon Center, rather than watching President Barack Obama’s press conference.

In a statement to Wonkette, the congressman’s office called it “a bipartisan night” and noted that Democrats had joined him at the show.

“I had a political event there, and it was simply because it was there to help the team, that’s why I was there,” Cantor told CNN on Thursday, noting that he’d been there for a fundraiser.

But working for his party wasn’t the only reason the congressman took a night out.

“I hand it to the performer, she was something,” he told CNN.

Britney Spears Reschedules March 26th Mohegan Sun Date

Britney Spears announced that she has rescheduled her March 26th Mohegan Sun Arena show for Sunday, May 3rd. The reschedule is due to the grand size of the show’s production, including a 360˚ stage, acrobatic apparatus and intense visual effects. The current tour routing for the Mohegan Sun date does not allow enough time for travel and the needed production set-up time. Her highly-anticipated The Circus Starring Britney Spears 2009 Tour will be playing Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday, May 2nd and Sunday May 3rd. Saturday’s show begins at 8:00pm and Sunday’s show begins at 7:30pm.

Ticket holders are advised to retain their tickets for the Thursday, March 26th show as they will be honored on the rescheduled date of Sunday, May 3rd. Refunds are available at the point of purchase.

Britney Spears Crew Members Arrested After South Side Scuffle

The following italicized article is from

Two men were arrested Wednesday night after scuffling with police officers along East Carson Street in Pittsburgh's South Side.

According to the criminal complaint, an officer said he saw Rockey Dickey, of California, punching another man in the face. The officer said he tried to stop the fight, which is when Dickey turned and took a swing at him, knocking off his hat.

Another officer jumped in to subdue Dickey, but Alex Montes, also from California, stepped in and placed that officer in a headlock, the criminal complaint said.

Montes' mother confirmed to Channel 11 that both her son and Dickey are members of pop star Britney Spears' road crew.

Spears is set to play Mellon Arena Friday night.

Police said Dickey would not cooperate when officers tried to handcuff him. A Taser was used to subdue him as he was kicking his legs and flailing his arms, police said.

Police said Montes fled the scene but was arrested a short time later.

The victim that was being beaten, Matthew Boyle, was taken to UPMC Mercy Hospital for injuries to his nose and forehead.

Dickey and Montes are charged with criminal conspiracy, disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. Dickey is also charged with simple assault and resisting arrest.

Montes' mother told Channel 11 that this is his first tour with Spears and said he does not usually get into trouble.
