Screw Cancer

The day is finally here.

After many years of praying, petitions and countless of hate mail to Adam and Larry it has happened. The original video for 'Gimme More' has leaked.

Now let's put it in the past and never talk about this travesty again. I mean....I'm speechless....

On a side note, I really hope God didn't take me seriously when I said I could die happily if I could ever see this video. I mean, with my cancer and all that I hope he wasn't paying attention and all in all it would be extremely pathetic to die after watching this.....

Britney Spears Kicks Off 'Flashiest' Tour Yet

On Thursday night, Britney Spears declared herself a Femme Fatale, launching her tour in Sacramento, California. Having already garnered praise from critics who attended her dress rehearsal, Spears got more rave reviews from music journalists who attended the kick-off show.

In addition to the glitzy costumes and high production value, Spears flaunted her stage chops, sashaying to songs like "Hold It Against Me" and "Big Fat Bass," as well as old-school jams like "Toxic" and "Don't Let Me Be the Last to Know."

Describing it as "her flashiest, fastest moving, and most entertaining production yet," Rollingstone.com said that while tour-opener Nicki Minaj brought her signature sass, "The night belonged to Britney: She managed to prove that she's still progressing as a showgirl. Not only that, she's doing it better than even die-hard defenders would've predicted."

The Sacramento Bee explained that while "Spears performed like a pro throughout the show, hitting all her marks, she had shown hesitancy in her movements — natural for the first stop on a tour. But that hesitancy vanished when she put on the denim. She seemed at ease."

The best review of all may have come from Spears herself, who enthusiastically took to Twitter to thank her fans: "Can't sleep. WAY too much Adrenaline right now. Sacramento was on fire tonight. You ready San Jose? Cause I am!!!!"

Once she wraps her San José, California, tour stop on Friday night (June 17), Spears will take her show to Los Angeles on Monday. The U.S. tour dates wrap up on August 25 in Raleigh, North Carolina. The Femme Fatale Tour then heads to Europe in September for two more months before closing on November 9 in Portugal.

Britney Spears Proves She's Still Got It at 'Femme Fatale' Tour Kickoff

Britney Spears is a dozen years into her career, and yet the kickoff of her Femme Fatale tour at the Power Balance Pavilion in Sacramento last night managed to propel her forward. She's wisely focusing on the present – she sang nine songs from her latest album Femme Fatale and snagged Nicki Minaj as her opening act – while offering possibly her flashiest, fastest moving, and most entertaining production yet.

Taking her entrance atop a moving platform in the first of many skimpy and sparkling Barbarella-esque outfits, Spears kicked off her performance with "Hold It Against Me." Flipping her massive blonde locks/weave/wig in what the Glee kids call "hairography," Spears shook what her hairdresser gave her while dancing hunks in policeman gear suggestively wielded truncheons around her. For "Up n’ Down," she and her female dancers reappeared in several cages made of poles, and were soon to be joined by the cops executing jungle gym acrobatics atop the cages. White satin fedoras and trench coats were donned for "3," and for "Piece of Me" she flew over the stage until the cops ripped off their shirts to reveal S&M bondage harnesses.

It was that kind of show, and the largely female audience sprinkled with some enthusiastic guys liked it that way: Throughout her set, the screaming from the fans rarely relented. Just about every number offered a different a visual theme more over-the-top than the one before it. "Big Fat Bass" featured giant speaker cabinets with woofers circled by flashing, color-changing lights. Spears took her entrance during "How I Roll" in a car that resembled a pink Mini Cooper. The hood folded into steps that allowed Spears to walk over and down the car – one of many agile moves Spears executed without twisting an ankle.

Her set was half over before she sang a track older than four years; this was "Boys (Remix)," followed by the sole slowie, "Don’t Let Me Be the Last to Know," which she sang on a swing. Here her mike was clearly turned on, and the results confirmed why Spears typically relies on prerecorded vocals. Her surprise cover of Madonna’s early single "Burning Up" lacked Madge’s authority, but it did feature Spears straddling a giant glittering guitar 10 or so feet high and twice as long. Her encore of "Toxic" featured a booming Dance Dance Revolution-styled remix with Japanese kimonos and dancing ninjas to match while "Till the World Ends" included Minaj rapping via video — an odd choice, since she was likely still backstage.

Britney Spears' Life in Photos: Her Rise, Fall and Comeback

Minaj’s own set lacked Spears’s budget or sharp choreography. Instead, the rapper tottered around on lime green platform shoes that threatened to tip her balance. Although she’s styled as a dance-pop diva, Minaj did little dancing — or singing, or even live rapping. Like Spears, much of her vocals were clearly prerecorded, which got a little too obvious during "Monster." Obviously she doesn’t have Kanye West with her, but throughout even her part in the song she sat nearly immobile, not bothering to hold a mike or move her lips.

Minaj clearly has stage presence, and the fact that fans cheered through abbreviated versions of her hits means that she’s doing something right by just showing up. But as a showcase for her considerable talents, her Thursday night performance lacked the commitment of her records. Surely the wild woman of "Did It On’em" can do better.

But really, the night belonged to Britney: She managed to prove that she's still progressing as a showgirl. Not only that, she's doing it better than even diehard defenders would’ve predicted. At 29, the pop star whose career seemed in danger of ending just a couple years ago has shown that she's back – hopefully this time to stay.

Selena Gomez & Britney Spears Team Up for 'Whiplash'

Check out Selena Gomez & The Scene’s song “Whiplash,” which was co-written by Britney Spears!

The track is one of the songs that didn’t make it onto Britney’s latest album, Femme Fatale, and will be featured on Selena’s upcoming album, When The Sun Goes Down.

The 18-year-old entertainer is planning on performing a tribute to Britney during her upcoming concert tour.

“Come on and take me to the other side. I’m gonna wait, when I look into your eyes. I’m so in love, I think I’m going to crash into you. Whiplash, whiplash, whiplash,” she sings.

Britney Spears' Dad -- Bargain Basement Tour Director

Jamie Spears is going to court to get some serious money for directing Britney Spears' Femme Fatale Tour that kicks off today in Sacramento, CA... but turns out he'll be the best bargain in town.

TMZ has obtained legal docs that Jamie has filed with the judge in Britney's conservatorship case ... asking the judge to give him money for directing the tour and managing the logistics of the tour.

Jamie has not specified the amount of money he wants, and sources tell us it hasn't been calculated yet. Sources tell us the amount will be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, but it's crazy cheap for what Jamie is doing.

To give you some perspective, 5 people managed the 2009 Circus Tour. Although the amount they made is blacked out in the legal documents, we were able to discern the amount is in the 7 figures.

With Jamie on board for the Britney Spears/Nicki Minaj Femme Fatale Tour, 3 of the 5 positions will be eliminated. Thus, if Jamie gets a 6 figure salary for the upcoming 8-month world tour, everybody wins.

Whatever Jamie gets for the tour ... it will be in addition to the $16,000 a month he's pulling in for serving as Britney's conservator.

Britney Spears: Tommy Hilfiger Prep World Shopper!

Britney Spears makes a stop at the Tommy Hilfiger Prep World Pop Up Shop at The Grove last week in Los Angeles.

The 29-year-old pop princess was joined by her adorable sons Sean and Jayden, her dad Jamie, and her assistant Brett for the shopping trip.

Britney, who used to be an ambassador for the brand, was invited by Tommy Hilfiger himself to the boutique and checked out such items as a blue seersucker blazer, a high heel navy boat shoe, a vintage whale print shift dress, classic polos in a rainbow of colors and more.

Sneak Peak of Tour Costume

Britney Spears' New Concert Tour: Should You Go? (Answer: Hell Yeah!)

Britney Spears is looking super hot.

How do I know this? Because last night I was among just a handful of people invited to watch the pop princess' first—and very private—dress rehearsal of her upcoming Femme Fatale tour.

Before I give ya some of the highlights, just let me say that if you don't have tickets yet, run and get them now.

The show opens with a video of Spears in a sparkly leotard (one of many skimpy outfits that shows off her back-in-shape bod) being chased by cops through an industrial landscape. And yes, Britney's brandishing a gun. Think Salt meets Charlie's Angels.

The song list includes more than—ready for this?—20 songs. She starts with "Hold It Against Me," followed by, well, everything, including "…Baby One More Time," "I'm a Slave 4 U," "Toxic," "Gimme More," "(Drop Dead) Beautiful," "Big Fat Bass" and "Till The World Ends."

Spears covers Madonna's "Burning Up" while straddling a gigantic electric guitar. She sings Rihanna's "S&M" in a flamboyant motorcycle gear (denim, leather, studs, etc.).

Footage of a slightly older, grizzly faced fellow in what appears to be some sort of Cold War radio transmission bunker is shown throughout the show. He says things like, "Bring your best game because tonight you and I are dancing a vicious dance," and asks, "What man are you bringing to his knees?"

Other video highlights include shots of completely naked men (just butts—no full-frontal, people!) and her male dancers in what can only be described as S&M leather gear and toys, including facemasks and nipple clamps.

All of her dancers—male and female—help keep the energy (a lot of it sexual!) going with gyrations, contortions, the aforementioned nakedness and lots of sweating. Special shout-out to Marco Da Silva—holy ridiculousness of tattooed muscles!

During "I Wanna Go," a bunch of us were brought on stage to dance with Britney. Yes, I can say I danced on a stage with Britney Spears! And so can my pals from Pink is the New Blog, BreatheHeavy.com, Just Jared and Ellen K. from Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM morning show, among others. Who else was there? Spears' hottie boyfriend Jason Trawick (he even got on stage during "How I Roll" to be tied up and straddled by his girlfriend), dad Jamie and Brit's two adorable sons, Sean and Jaden.

The finale is insane. I won't tell you exactly what happens, but it includes big, white angel wings.

There's so much more to see and hear. Spears sings, dances and gives you some of her best work ever. Like I said, get your tickets now!

Britney Spears Files Suit in Stinky Perfume Case

Britney Spears is firing back at the perfume company that is suing her -- in the form of her very own lawsuit against the company.

Britney has filed a cross-complaint, claiming Brand Sense was all about radio silence when it came to accounting for how much money she was supposed to get for the sale of a perfume -- Radiance -- she was hocking. And there was a lot of money on the line, Brit claims -- millions of bucks worth of the fragrance were sold.

Brit says Brand Sense withheld Britney's share of the proceeds for months, failing to pay her interest on the delayed payments.

Brand Sense is suing Brit, claiming she cut them out of her deal with Elizabeth Arden. Britney says Brand Sense was not cut out of the deal.

Radiance: Choose your own lawsuit.

Britney Spears -- Not Competent to Take Oath

Britney Spears' lawyers are trying to block her deposition in a perfume lawsuit, because they say she's not legally competent to give sworn testimony.

Brand Sense Partners is suing Brit for $10 million, claiming she had a deal with the company but pulled a double-cross by trying to cut them out of a lucrative project with Elizabeth Arden.

Brand Sense wants to take Britney's deposition, but Brit's lawyers have so far refused, on grounds Brit is under a conservatorship and can't be forced to testify without the approval of the conservatorship's attorneys.

No word on whether the attorneys for the conservatorship will sign off on the depo, but Brand is tired of waiting and is now asking the judge in the perfume case to order Britney to sit for the deposition.

Britney Spears Hits The Gym, Trains For Her Tour

Britney Spears has been pretty MIA for the past few weeks but only because she has been working night and day on rehearsals for her upcoming Femme Fatale World Tour. Earlier today we got our first look at the stage layout for the tour and right now we get to see new photos of Britney out and about as she made her exit from the gym this week.

It’s been a long time since we’ve seen photos of Britney just out in the world doing stuff … but because she’s been working hard behind the scenes rehearsing for her tour, I’m OK without the daily Brit sightings. I know for a fact that her tour is going to be AMAZING! It will be all anyone can talk about … and I can’t wait to see it!! Keep up the hard work, Britters ;D

RUMORED ''I Wanna Go'' Video Concept

Britney Spears is currently shooting her third single, “I Wanna Go,” in LA today and tomorrow — but HollywoodLife.com has all the details about her latest project! The video, directed by Chris Marrs Piliero, will feature hardly any choreography, “It’s very personality and action driven,” our source said. Rather than play up the sexuality of the song, the piece will showcase Britney’s sense of humor in a playful way. According to our source, “It’s not really indicative of the song at all.”

The video will open with a mock press conference, and the paparazzi will ask Britney inappropriate questions. The singer curses them out and storms off, before later discovering that they’re all robots. “It seems like Britney is hung up on the press, which is ironic because for the most part they seem to be leaving her alone,” our source continued.

Britney will play out fantasies in her head, which include making out with a fan, flashing a cop, and getting frisky with a hot star! Although we’re not quite sure who her main man will be, our source tells us they’ve already reached out to Matthew McConaughey and Kellan Lutz.

The handsome actor will show up and save Britney from the paparazzi, before they hook up in the backseat of a car, where she discovers he’s a robot too!

The video ends back at the press conference, where you discover that Britney was just daydreaming. She then walks off with the actor, who turns around and smiles at the camera, his eyes glaring just like those of the robot paparazzi.

Britney is going to definitely look sexy, but in an edgy way — expect to see the star in combat boots, and a studded, punk-rock get-up at the press conference. “Diesel has signed on as a sponsor, and practically all the costs are being covered by sponsorships, priced around $300,000,” our source said. This isn’t surprising, especially since Britney’s previous video, Hold It Against Me Ho, was full of product placement.

One thing’s for sure, it definitely sounds different from the work we’ve seen from the star in the past! Are you excited for her latest video?

Britney Spears' Beau Jason Trawick Gets New Gig

Moving on up!

Britney Spears' beau and manager Jason Trawick has a new gig. The 39-year-old has left his position at William Morris Endeavor to "create an arts and entertainment division" for a company called Famos LLC.

So what does this mean? Trawick will no longer be Spears' agent. He'll oversee Famos' arts and entertainment brand, F*star. The brand will be a partnership with musician and media impresario, Dave Stewart and legendary Rolling Stones' frontman, Mick Jagger.

Trawick -- who worked for WME for 12 years -- will continue to work closely with his former employer as the new online service, currently under wraps at www.famos.com, readies for a planned summer debut.

"As agents, we're constantly getting pitched deals with some new technology that's going to revolutionize this or monetize that, when basically they're all just reading off the same script," Trawick said. "Famos is a different animal -- a disruptive technology that respects the artist and values the fan, which is basically everything my clients ever wanted… It's a very exciting opportunity for me professionally, and I'm humbled to be a part of such a visionary partnership."

Britney Spears Plans Happy Homecoming for the Troops

Britney Spears sure knows how to welcome home the troops.

About a month ago, some very clever Marines posted a video on YouTube of themselves lip-syncing to the pop star's recent hit "Hold It Against Me."

How's Brit returning the love? Read on to find out...

I can exclusively reveal that Spears has invited the troops to her upcoming Femme Fatale tour.

"I was so moved by the 'Hold It Against Me' video that the Marines of HMLA-169 and VMM-266 REIN made in Afghanistan," Spears tells me. "It warmed my heart to see our nation's soldiers enjoying themselves to my music. I am honored to have them as guests at my concert this summer. I hope they like my show as much as I loved theirs."

I'm told that Spears also sent care packages to the troops along with handwritten notes.

Shortly, after the video hit the web, Spears tweeted, "I am in LOVE with this. I always knew our soldiers were fierce! Thanks fore everything you guys do."

God bless America!

Kesha Meets Britney Spears

Ke$ha meets fellow pop phenom Britney Spears for the first time outside the Just Jared lounge at 102.7 KIIS FM’s Wango Tango 2011 at Staples Center on Saturday (May 14) in Los Angeles.

“Britney is a pop icon,” K$ told Just Jared after the encounter. “She is larger than life. But it’s great to see that even Brit is just a cool laid back southern girl.”

Ke$ha wrote “Till The World Ends” for Britney but they hadn’t met and hung out - until Wango Tango!

Other pictures include Ke$ha with her kickass mom, songwriter Pebe Sebert. (They worked on a number of K$ songs together including “Your Love Is My Drug,” “Cannibal,” “Crazy Beautiful Life,” and “We R Who We R.”)

FYI: Selena Gomez was also in the hallway when Britney emerged from her dressing room backstage. “Oh my god, Britney Spears just waved at me,” she said as she clutched her heart. Selena’s friends were trying to convince her to go back and say hello but Sel was too starstruck!

Britney Spears 'Ends' Up Atop Dance/Club Play Songs

Britney Spears ascends to her seventh No. 1 on Billboard's Dance/Club Songs chart, as "Till the World Ends" rises 2-1.

The song is the second No. 1 on the chart from Spears' album "Femme Fatale," following "Hold It Against Me," which topped the March 19 tally.

Spears notched her first Dance/Club Play Songs No. 1 with Madonna, the artist with the most toppers (40) in the chart's 35-year history. Here are Spears' seven leaders on the list:

2003, "Me Against the Music" (featuring Madonna)
2004, "Toxic"
2007, "Gimme More"
2008, "Piece of Me"
2008, "Break the Ice"
2011, "Hold It Against Me"
2011, "Till the World Ends"

"Till the World Ends" peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 two weeks ago following the release of its Nicki Minaj- and Ke$ha (the song's co-writer)-assisted remix. The song has sold 1.3 million downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The track logged an all-format radio audience of 87 million in the May 4-10 tracking period, according to Nielsen BDS, marking Spears's highest-ever weekly total.

Hotney Godney Reveals Tour-Ready Abs

For most people, the idea of working out for more than six hours a day might sound like nothing short of torture.

But Britney Spears can't get enough. For the last six weeks, she's been training for 90 minutes a day, followed by another five hours of dance rehearsals in preparation for her North American tour, kicking off June 16 in Sacramento.

"I'm pumped up!" Spears tells PEOPLE inside her cozy dressing room on the Sony lot in Culver City, Calif. "We've been working hard. And the costumes are coming next week. This is the exciting part, when all the pieces – the masterpiece – come together."

During Spears's month and a half of prep time, trainer Derek DeGrazio has cooked, packaged and labeled meals (like baked fish and broccoli) and snacks (such as celery with almond butter) for the 29-year-old pop star, six days a week.

She does get a break from all the discipline, though. Sunday, says Spears, is her "cheat day."

But it's certainly not derailing her efforts. Spears's workouts and her 1,500-calorie-a-day nutrition plan have whipped her into top tour shape.

"You can see the tone in her muscles – her arms, legs and abs," says DeGrazio. "She looks amazing."

Britney's Bazaar Interview

Britney Spears is on the phone from rehearsals in Los Angeles, where she is busy singing, dancing, and "It's Britney, bitch"-ing in preparation for her summer tour. She sounds energized and positive, occasionally flashing a wry sense of humor that those who see her only on TV and in the tabloids never glimpse.

Professionally, Britney has a lot to feel good about: Her new album, Femme Fatale, is receiving the best reviews of her almost-20-year career. "I've worked so hard on this album, so it's really refreshing," she says. "I feel like I'm drinking a tall glass of homemade sweet tea on a really hot, beautiful day."

LAURA BROWN: What has been your best fashion look?

BRITNEY SPEARS: I went to the Grammys in 2002, and I had really curly, curly hair. I had a red dress on. It wasn't short and saucy; it was a long red dress. That dress was fun.

LB: What was your biggest fashion mistake?

BS: Ten years ago at the Billboard awards, I wore this orange hat and orange bra and orange booty pants and purple fishnets. Oh, and I had an orange jacket on.

LB: Was it Halloween?

BS [laughs]: No, it wasn't Halloween. I actually thought I looked hot at the time. But, um, I definitely stood out. I thought it was just a marvelous idea to wear this purple and orange outfit; it was like high school colors. I was a cheerleader for a school I didn't know. People were talking about it, but not in a good way.

LB: Your hair is looking long and lustrous. Are you whipping it back and forth?

BS: Yeah, I love ponytails. I'm a wash-and-go girl. But, oh yeah, I like to whip it.

LB: Are you enjoying dancing again?

BS: I love to dance, so it's very exciting. The tour rehearsals have been going really well. I think it will be my best show yet.

LB: Will you pull out any giant snakes?

BS: Ha, we'll see about that. Hopefully, I won't be in the wilderness onstage.

LB: What songs get you moving?

BS: I love "S&M" and "Only Girl" by Rihanna; that's why I jumped on the "S&M" remix. She's really cool. I like her a lot.

LB: Everybody has Bieber fever. Have you met Justin? Would you ever want to work with him?

BS: I think he's adorable. I just saw his movie, and I really didn't realize how big he was. He's enormous; he's just Mr. Man. A lot of the movie is really similar to what I did when I was starting out. I did a promo tour for a year, going into radio stations and all that. It was so cool to see our similarities.

LB: "It's Britney, bitch" is classic, but you say you're less bitchy than impatient. What makes you impatient?

BS: When things take a long time, I just get really stubborn. When I know that things are supposed to go a certain way [laughs] and when it's my time of the month.

LB: What makes you laugh uncontrollably?

BS: Usually when people trip or fall or run into something. Not to be mean, but I can't help it. If they really hurt themselves, then I feel bad, but if they accidentally do it and they stand up and act cool like nobody saw them, I have to laugh.

LB: It's been eight years since you kissed Madonna onstage at the MTV awards. What have you learned from her?

BS: I actually saw her a couple of weeks ago at a party. I guess she's really taught me to stay true to myself. That seems like a simple thing to say, but she taught me through action, not just by saying it. There are so many people around you that have opinions, but you just have to listen to your instincts.

LB: You've said Jennifer Lopez inspires you professionally. Would you ever want to be a judge on American Idol?

BS: I would! That would be awesome. I wouldn't be a tough judge, though.

LB: What do you think of Lady Gaga?

BS: She's unique and extremely talented. I love her spin on everything.

LB: On your Web site, you have a "BS Alert" where you clear up gossip. Have you ever been tempted to make something up to see what happens?

BS: No way! They make up enough stories without my help.

LB: How has being a mom affected how you approach your career?

BS: I think things through a little bit more, and I worry a lot. I'm more straightforward, and I speak up more than I did before. When I was younger, I wouldn't speak up as much, but now that I'm a mom, things have changed.

LB: Would you like to get married again? More kids?

BS: I've thought about both, so if the timing was right ...

LB: Could you see your sons performing?

BS: If they have a love and passion for the arts and that's what they want to do, then so be it. They are both little actors and so charismatic, I wouldn't be surprised at all.

LB: Which one of your hits made you realize you'd made it?

BS: From the beginning, probably "... Baby One More Time." I haven't seen that video in such a long time.

LB: What's your favorite video?

BS: "Overprotected." I just think it says a lot. It was directed so well, it was really colorful, and the dancing was amazing.

LB: Who is your greatest inspiration musically?

BS: Whitney Houston. I've loved her since I was a kid.

LB: If you met yourself at a party, what would you think?

BS: If I met me, I would say a quick hello and then think that I was a really nice girl.

LB: What is your perfect day, morning through to night?

BS: Getting up with coffee--two cups of coffee. Having a good workout, taking a swim, my boys being there and just having a good day at the pool--we have a theme-park slide. We'd have snow cones, then I'd go to the movies and spend time with my boyfriend. Maybe a Femme Fatale moment [laughs].

LB: What is your guilty pleasure?

BS: Bapchi's caramel toffee from Vosges. They were in my hotel room, and I made everyone bring them from their rooms.

LB: What don't people know about you?

BS: I'm pretty normal, you know? Like I said, the type of day I love is just like everybody else's. I'm like everybody else.

Britney Spears is on the cover of the latest issue of Harper’s Bazzar magazine, which declares “Britney’s Back!”

An excerpt from the article: “Britney Spears is on the phone from rehearsals in Los Angeles, where she is busy singing, dancing and ‘It’s Britney, b****’-ing in preparation for her summer tour. She sounds energized and positive, occasionally flashing a wry sense of humor that those who see her only on TV and in the tabloids never glimpse.

‘I’ve worked so hard on this album, so it’s really refreshing,’ Britney says in the interview for Harper’s Bazaar magazine, by Laura Brown (photographs by Alexi Lubomirski).”

Britney Spears Could Be Forced Into Psychiatric Examination in Sam Lutfi Lawsuit

Ever since Britney Spears shaved her head, got arrested for reckless driving and seemingly lost control of her career, the pop singer's mental state has been questioned by observers. Her career is now on the upswing once again, with a hit album and a coming tour, but the issue of her mental competence is still pertinent.

Spears' ex-manager, Sam Lutfi, is pursuing legal claims against the singer's mother, Lynne Spears, and wants Britney to give a deposition. Britney's parents, though, are resisting, saying that Britney is mentally incapable of testifying. In a motion filed on Monday at Los Angeles Superior Court, Lutfi asked a judge to order a psychiatric evaluation of the singer to prove that's not true.

Despite Spears' comeback, she's still under the conservatorship of her father, James Parnell Spears, and family lawyer, Andrew Wallet. Both are hesitant to let the singer get too close with Lutfi, who was fired in 2008.

As detailed in Lynne Spears' memoir, Through the Storm, Lutfi was allegedly a master manipulator who secretly drugged Britney, cut off her communications and mobility, and set himself up as the celebrity's "gatekeeper" before he was fired.

Lutfi says those things aren't true. He claims that Britney's life was already a mess before he got involved. He's suing for defamation, and last November, an appeals court refused to toss the lawsuit. So the battle rages on.

The ex-manager now wants Britney to give her side of the story, but her conservators don't want that.

In turn, Lutfi points to a recent MTV documentary about the singer, a coming world tour, and an interview conducted with Britney by Ryan Seacrest in March as circumstantial evidence that the singer has got her wits about her again.

Although Britney hasn't yet submitted to a psychiatric evaluation, Lutfi took the evidence to his own expert, UCLA Assistant Professor of Psychiatry Joshua Pretsky, for analysis. According to Pretsky's declaration to the court:

"In the Ryan Seacrest interview, which was recorded approximately two months ago, Britney Spears is interviewed at length, and she responds logically and coherently to questions, evidencing logical thinking and mental competency. The edited interviews in the [MTV] video documentary also evidence coherent and logical thinking, responsiveness to questions, and mental competence ... In my opinion, there is good cause to conduct an Independent Medical Examination to investigate the Conservators' claim that Ms. Spears is not mentally capable of testifying, and the claim that she was not mentally competent to enter into a binding contract. ..."

Of course, there may be more on the line than just whether Britney is testifying in Lutfi's lawsuit or not. If she's declared mentally fit, it could go some ways to unwinding the conservatorship over the 29-year-old singer.

Nicki Minaj Talks about Britney

"I feel like [Britney] has experienced life as an underdog, and I feel like my whole career I've been the underdog. I think that it just goes to show that when you are a strong woman, at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter. You bounce back from whatever. And I think she’s probably gone through 10 times whatever I’ve gone through. But the fact that she came back out with just so much fire inspires me, and it inspires young women and people all over the world. It just inspires you. A lot of my fans feel like they are the underdog and feel like they are the people who aren’t ever accepted for themselves, or who are laughed at or poked fun at forever. It just goes to show that once you keep at whatever it is you’re doing, people may not like you, people may not love you, but they will have to respect you at the end of the day. And that respect is all that matters."

Update - 3rd Single Drama

According to BreatheHeavy the 3rd single is slated to be ''I Wanna Go''...

...however according to MartianLeaks, who leaked ''Till The World Ends'', he has information that ''The Big Fat Bass'' will be the 3rd single.

All I can say is: #CriminalFTW

Update: MartianLeaks is now saying he heard wrong and ''I Wanna Go'' will in fact be released early next month.

Now all we need is a confirmation from Britney's team which will most likely come somewhere in October 2013 right before ''Radar'' featuring Celine Dion is announced as the 4th and final single from ''Femme Fatale''.

Brian: ''Britney Is a Different Person''

She's Perfect

''Till The World Ends'' Reaches #3

Spears' "Till the World Ends" blasts 11-3, besting its previous peak of No. 9, as the Hot 100's Digital Gainer following the release of its much-buzzed-about remix featuring Nicki Minaj and Ke$ha. "World" roars 12-3 on Digital Songs with 246,000 downloads sold (up 102%). The triple-threat remix accounted for 167,000, or 68%, of the title's sales in the April 25-May 1 tracking period.

"World" marks the second high-profile remix - both involving Spears - to spur a headline-grabbing chart move in three weeks. Rihanna's "S&M" ascended 2-1 two weeks ago following the release of its remix featuring Spears. All versions of "S&M" sold a combined 293,000 downloads that week, a gain comparable (up 108%) to that of "World" this week. Likewise similar to "World," the Spears-assisted remix of "S&M" accounted for 66% of the song's overall digital sales that frame.

Britney Spears Reaches Platinum Status with ''Femme Fatale''

New York, NY - Pop superstar Britney Spears achieves another benchmark with her current album, Femme Fatale. This week, Spears’ seventh album – which spawned the No. 1 hit “Hold It Against Me” and the Top 5 smash “Till The World Ends”- is certified platinum by the RIAA. This latest news brings Britney’s U.S. albums certifications to the 32 million sales mark.

The certification comes as tickets for her highly anticipated all female Femme Fatale Tour with special guests Nicki Minaj, Jessie and the Toy Boys and Nervo go on sale April 30th. The tour kicks off on June 16th in Sacramento.

Spears’ impressive reach goes beyond the U.S. as fans world wide are embracing her latest project.

The current single, “Till The World Ends” is in the Top 10 on iTunes charts in Canada, Mexico, Australia, France, Spain and Denmark and the song ranks in the Top 20 on radio airplay charts across Europe.

With the release of the critically-acclaimed Femme Fatale, Britney has earned more distinctions and set new records: she is the only woman to have six albums debut at No.1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart; she and Mariah Carey are the only artists to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with more than one song; Britney’s one of only seven artists- and just three women- with Hot 100 No. 1’s in three decades; Femme Fatale is one of the Top 10 longest running trending topics on Twitter.

Britney Spears' 'World' Angles for Top 5 of Hot 100, Thanks to Remix

Can another diva-infused remix rush up the Billboard Hot 100 next week? That's what fans of Britney Spears are probably hoping.

On Monday (Apr. 25), Spears released the "Femme Fatale" remix of "Till the World Ends" (featuring Nicki Minaj and Ke$ha) to digital retailers -- just two weeks after the singer made headlines by guest-starring on the so-called "Rih-mix" of Rihanna's "S&M." The latter soared to No. 1 upon its release, giving RiRi her 10th No. 1 and Spears her fifth.

Now, the new remix of "Till the World Ends" could prompt a jump into the top five of the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart next week. We'll know for sure when news of the new Hot 100 is revealed on May 4.

Industry prognosticators suggest that all versions of "Till" (the original, the new "Femme" remix and its other assorted dance mixes) may sell around 210,000 or more by week's end on Sunday, May 1. That would secure its best sales frame yet, trumping the 158,000 it moved after its first full week on sale in March. Last week, the song shifted 122,000 downloads.

If the song earns as much radio airplay as it did this past week (around 72 million in audience), the song's combined point total could place it around Nos. 3-5 on the Hot 100 next week.

A No. 2 rank is conceivable -- as is of course, a long-shot chance at No. 1 -- but "Till the World Ends" faces stiff competition in the form of the current No. 1, Katy Perry's "E.T." (Not to mention the growing popularity of Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" and the Black Eyed Peas' "Just Can't Get Enough" -- which stand at Nos. 2 and 3, respectively, this week.)

If Spears' "Till the World Ends" reaches the top five, it will give her back-to-back studio albums with a pair of top five singles. Her 2008 "Circus" set spawned a No. 1 with "Womanizer" and a No. 3 hit with its title track. And her latest, "Femme Fatale," already saw its lead offering, "Hold It Against Me," debut at No. 1.

"Till the World Ends" has thus far peaked at No. 8 on the Hot 100. This week is declines 9-11, though with an overall gain in points.

Britney Spears Has Created 'Her Own Genre,' Dr. Luke Says

Since Britney Spears emerged on the scene nearly a decade and a half ago, she's run the gamut of pop music: from sugary bubble-gum to dirty, sexy dance tracks. In that respect, her longtime collaborator and Femme Fatale producer Dr. Luke says that the superstar has in many respects become bigger than pop. In fact, he says it's hard to confine her to just one genre.

"I feel like Britney kind of has her own genre: If you look at songs like 'Toxic' and 'Piece of Me' and 'Oops! ... I Did It Again,' they all were sort of influential and led the way," he told MTV News on Thursday (April 28) at the ASCAP Pop Music Awards.

So when the pair sat down to work on her latest release, Dr. Luke said her pop-music shape-shifting was very much on his mind. "She wanted to keep on with that and do stuff that was forward-thinking," he continued. "So we put some dubstep stuff in there, in bridges; snuck it in different places and I hope it ended up good. I hope you like it."

It seems every time Spears drops a new album, it's declared her comeback record. But Dr. Luke noted that Brit has really never gone anywhere. "Where'd she go? I don't know. I didn't know she ever disappeared, really," he said. "She's always been selling out concerts and records, so I don't know that she ever disappeared."

So what do Spears and Luke have up their sleeve now? "Not yet ... give me a second to breathe, come up for air!" he told us.

Plus, even with Femme Fatale already in stores, it seems like the pair are always finding ways to update the songs. Take, for example, the recent remix of "Till the World Ends," which features Ke$ha (the track's songwriter) and Nicki Minaj.

"Well, we already had Ke$ha on the song 'cause she co-wrote the song ... and she sounded really good on it," Dr. Luke explained. "And then Nicki got on the Femme Fatale Tour so we put Nicki on it and it just sounded amazing. She killed it."

Britney Spears Causes "Pandemonium" at Nicki Minaj's After Party

After rockin' the stage with Lil' Wayne for the "I'm Still Music" tour at Staples Center in Los Angeles last night, Nicki Minaj jet to host her after party at The Factory in West Hollywood.

Britney Spears decided to drop in on her Femme Fatale tourmate's shindig, and fans began hyperventilating to the point that bouncers needed to carry them out!

A source tells us, "[It] was complete pandemonium. Six people were carried out after hyperventilating. They literally fainted when Britney walked onto the stage where Nicki was hanging."

For those still conscious, their goal was to try and reach Britney.

"People were crowd surfing to get to the stage. Screams were so loud for Nicki and Brit you couldn't hear the music. Bouncers couldn't hold the crowd back."

Nicki showed up around 12:30 a.m. and hung out with her crew, taking a break from performing. Meanwhile, Britney showed up closer to 1 a.m. with boyfriend, Jason Trawick, but stayed for 30 minutes.

Khloé Kardashian Odom also attended the event, but went solo.

Britney Spears 'Comes Alive' In The Studio, will.i.am Says

When will.i.am hit the studio with Britney Spears for her Femme Fatale track "Big Fat Bass," the producer and Black Eyed Peas frontman said the singer was completely engrossed in the recording process.

"[I discovered] her love for music. I never seen anyone, like, come alive, full of excitement and giggling and laughing behind the mic," will recalled to MTV News. "She was like a little kid when she was recording the song and it just brought the whole atmosphere, it changed the whole atmosphere when someone really loves music. So it was great working with her."

Spears expressed a similar sentiment about recording her chart-topping album during her recent "I Am the Femme Fatale" MTV special, which featured a cameo by will.i.am, who was finishing up the party track at the time.

"When you're in the studio, you're just really focused, you're really in your head and in your ears and on the notes," she explains in the show. "And when you're performing, it's more a connection on the outside and more of — like a tiger and more in your body."

Both Brit and will are now industry vets so the BEP singer said he didn't have much advice for the star.

"When someone's excited to go out and just do it, what advice? You don't need no advice. She's just turned on right now. She is [like], 'I like this part right here.' When I say [on the song], 'You all better get ready for the kick drum,' she was already anticipating what she was going to do onstage when that beat broke down," he explained. "Adding that type of perspective ... when we we're recording it, you don't need to give nobody [like Britney] advice."

Britney Spears Can Still Dance

Britney Spears' camp very, very quietly - considering who we're talking about here - posted an edited video of her latest single, "Till the World Ends," which shows Ms. Spears actually dancing. For more than 2 seconds at a time.

Sure, Britney isn't as agile as she was in her teens, but she remains a better dancer than most of the ladies out there grabbing covers of music and fashion magazines. (If you've seen her live during her recent tours, you know that this is true and not just editing magic.) So, it's a wonder why the people directing and editing her music videos these days tend to cut out all the parts where she's dancing and leave in the parts where she's standing like an awkward maypole, waving her arms in the air while other people prance and writhe around her. Either she doesn't have confidence in herself or they don't have confidence in her anymore. Whatever the case, it's dumb. Say what you will about the girl's singing, her strength has always been her ability to bust a move.

Britney Spears Signs Nicki Minaj for Concert Tour

It's official. TMZ has learned ... Nicki Minaj will be Britney Spears' opening act for her upcoming concert tour.

Sources involved in the negotiation tell TMZ ... the deal was signed several days ago, and Britney is elated. Everyone involved in the concert is relieved Enrique Iglasias' ego couldn't handle opening for Britney and feel Nicki will be infinitely better.

Minaj, who is on tour with Lil Wayne until the end of the month, currently has two singles on the Billboard Top 100 -- "Moment 4 Life" and "Did It On'em"

Everyone connected with the concert series thinks Nicki will create even more heat for the tour, which kicks off on June 17 in Sacramento, CA.

TMZ broke the story Nicki and Britney were in serious negotiations.
Right after we posted that story, the comments and emails were almost unanimous that Nicki is an infinitely better choice than Enrique.

Britney Spears: The Origin Of The Super-Pop Species

By the time you read this, Britney Spears will have scored her sixth #1 debut with Femme Fatale, her latest installment of supersonic, stealth-fighter pop, a collection of songs equipped with laser-guided, heat-seeking hit missiles. In fact, Femme Fatale is more like an F-22 Raptor than an album.

Maybe I shouldn't be amazed that Brit finds herself atop the charts once again, but don't we live in austere times? Aren't Odd Future the only thing that matters these days?

I'm only sort of kidding. Because, frankly, each and every time Britney lands another #1, it's kind of like we've traveled through a wormhole and ended up in 1999, a time when the industry was still flush with cash and Lou Pearlman still lumbered the land. This was only 12 years ago, but it may as well have been 12 million.

These days, we still have plenty of pure pop stars, though none of them are quite like Britney. Lady Gaga is into performance art. Katy Perry is the California Gurl. Pink is the punky older cousin with a ton of tattoos. As is often the case with evolution, they have each developed specialized traits in order to survive. Britney is, in a lot of ways, the origin of the species (for simplicity's sake, I'm just ignoring Madonna, who basically did everything before any of this generation's stars were even teething). She was — and, I suppose, still is — the music industry's first attempt to promote a star that is everything to everyone. And each and every time she surfaces with a new album in tow, it signals the return of pop's Mesozoic era. For all intents and purposes, she may spend her time between albums trapped in amber, waiting to have her DNA extracted by some scientist.

This is by no means meant to come across as a slight against Spears. I fully understand why her fans love her the way they do, not to mention the fact that Femme Fatale is a heck of a pop record, a starry shadowbox of the coolest sounds you're likely to hear all year. It's more me simply marveling at the way she operates — in the cockpit of a high-powered fighter, making glossy, big-budget videos, putting on full-scale pop spectacles. There truly, honestly isn't anyone else like her.

We should take this opportunity to appreciate what Britney Spears — and her album — represent. She is the last super-pop star left standing. There was a time when everyone did things this way; now it's her and her alone. Spears is still everything to everyone, in a time when all we hear about are "niche markets" and "splintered genres," and for that alone, the success of Femme Fatale is noteworthy. Can she continue to survive among her more specialized peers? She's certainly earned the right to, though one gets the feeling she's probably not too worried about that fact. The thing about being the first is that there isn't really anything — or anyone — to compete against. So let others sweat the small stuff; Britney's only concerned with being Britney. Now and forever.

Britney Talks about Her Life to US Weekly

Congratulations on Femme Fatale! How did making this record compare to making your first …Baby One More Time?
I’m at such a different point in my life now than I was back then. I’m more mature and much more hands on now. I know exactly what I like and what I don’t like. I guess that can make the recording process pretty difficult, because I’m very particular about songs I put my voice on.

You’re a parent now, too. How has motherhood changed you?
It really puts life into perspective. You have to think about all your decisions so much more carefully, because they are affecting your kids too. My priorities have changed and I do everything for the boys. They remind me what life is about.

Tell Us about Preston and Jayden.
Jayden is the youngest and he might be the mama’s boy. He’s very outgoing, always making us laugh, and he’s very creative. Preston is definitely the big brother. He’s very independent. He’s really, really smart and thinks everything through.

What are they into these days?
Their new favorite thing is dressing up as different superheroes, and they’re just so cute! They especially love Batman and Spiderman. We love watching Disney movies together. I also love reading them Fancy Nancy books (a children’s series by Jane O’ Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser) before bed.

What do the boys think of your music?
They are my biggest fans. I make up songs and sing to them all the time. They like to watch me dance. In fact, they join in and do their own moves!

Will they get to see you in action on the tour?
They will be coming with me. I couldn’t go on tour without them! I’m always very busy when I’m on the road, but I make sure to have quality time with them every single day.

What’s your parenting style? And what about Jason’s?
With some things I’m strict and with other I’m easy going. I guess I’m right in the middle. Jason is amazing with the boys. They look up to him so much – they adore him. He’s their hero.

What else do you love about Jason?
We have such a great time together! He makes me laugh, and we are so comfortable being ourselves. We like to stay home, order in, watch movies, go to dinner with friends. And we love to get away for the weekend. Some of our favorite spots are Las Vegas, Hawaii, or Mexico.

Do you see yourself getting married again?
Maybe. Never say never!

Britney Covers US Weekly

She's already been married twice, but is Britney Spears ready to become a bride once more for love Jason Trawick?

As she enjoys blockbuster sales and the strongest reviews of her career for seventh studio album Femme Fatale, Spears, 29, tells all in the new Us Weekly (out Wednesday) about finding Mr. Right in agent Trawick, 39, her boyfriend of over two years.

"We have such a great time together!" Spears tells Us exclusively. "He makes me laugh, and we are so comfortable being ourselves."

Marriage plans? "Maybe," she teases. "Never say never!"

Indeed, a family source tells Us that the blissful pair will likely wed. Trawick, after all, the source says, "was one of the only people who stuck by her through everything," including Spears' dark 2007 and early 2008 -- when she lost custody of her sons Sean, 5, and Jayden, 4, to ex Kevin Federline, and was briefly admitted to a psychiatric hospital.

"[Jason] was someone she felt she could be her true self with. [Marriage] is what they talk about and the direction they're going in," the insider says.

Whatever and whenever their nuptial plans, one thing is certain, Spears tells Us: "I've never been happier!"
