People Magazine Reports On Britney's Hectic Friday Night

Written by admin. Posted in Comeback

Showing no pre-show jitters before her big MTV Video Music Awards performance, Britney Spears made at least two club stops filled with dancing and champagne on Friday night – first hanging with Criss Angel, then hitting a party thrown by Diddy.

At Body English in the Hard Rock Hotel, the pop star and her pals, who had a VIP table surrounded with five-dozen roses, were joined by the illusionist, with whom she’s been rehearsing. “She wouldn’t stop dancing with her friends, and she looked great,” an onlooker said. After about an hour Spears left hand-in-hand with Angel.

She then popped up at PURE nightclub, where she received a warm welcome from Diddy.

“Listen up, we have Miss Britney Spears in the crowd,” Diddy announced from the main stage at about 2 a.m. Saturday.

Spears had slipped into the club through a side door with six girlfriends. Wearing a strapless black mini, she held court in the VIP area, smiling, sipping champagne and dancing barefoot on a couch.

At one point, Diddy got on the microphone and told the crowd, “Britney, she holds her head up high, show some respect.”

Spears ducked her head down shyly, but bounced back when her new single “Gimme More” blared over the speakers. Her friends jumped in front of her and started dancing.

The singer left around 2:30 a.m., smiling and waving to the crowd as she walked through a path cleared by security guards.

The party appearance capped a busy day for Spears, who arrived in Vegas on Friday and rehearsed behind closed doors in the Palms Casino Resort’s Pearl theater for her comeback performance to open the VMAs on Sunday night.

“I think she’s focusing on performing,” says music producer J.R. Rotem, who worked on seven songs for Spears’s upcoming album. “I know that her passion is performing. She loves being in the studio, she loves making music, but she’s a born performer. Her whole focus has been: ‘I just want to get up onstage and dance.’ So I’m excited because I know she is.”

Rotem, who attended the BMI Urban Awards at New York New York hotel on Friday night, says the last few tumultuous years have changed Spears.

“She’s in a more mature place in a way,” says Rotem. “I think she’s exploring topics in her music that deal with that. She still has her sexy, edgy pop stuff, but I think a person gets to a certain level of depth when they have kids so I think some of that is coming out in the music.”

Producer Sean Garrett, who also worked on Spears’s new album, says her new effort “is crazy” with “great material.”

“Britney’s really just trying to get back,” he says. “She probably had time to really think about her career and is missing performing. She tried to make the right moves; she got married – she tried to do the right thing, she had kids, which everyone strives to do. It did what it did, but I think she’s trying to stay grounded.”

Official Details About The Performance (Includes Spoilers)

All afternoon, everyone’s been waiting for Britney to rehearse for her VMA performance. Britney Watch, as you might call it, takes the form of excruciatingly long periods of waiting punctuated by brief bursts of news, which can almost resemble activity from afar, even when nothing’s actually happened yet. Britney’s in the air, Britney’s landed, Britney’s in the building. There’s the anticipation (what will she be like?), the worry (what if she doesn’t show?), and the doubt (can she still pull it off?). But if the skeptics saw what a few of us at MTV News were privileged to witness late Friday afternoon (September 7) at the Pearl Concert Theater in the Palms Resort Casino, they would doubt no more.

Britney as a tabloid figure has loomed so large of late, it’s hard to imagine that there was a time when it was just Britney the performer. Britney the dancer. Britney the star. And while she wasn’t yet at full steam — after all, these were dry runs at the Palms to get her blocking straight and stage lighting situated — glimpses of what she used to be and what she could still become were there even in these early rehearsals. “Gimme More” might not have won everyone over on first listen, but it’s kind of like “Slave 4 U” or “SexyBack” — the videos in those cases helped sell the songs. But in this case, Britney’s performance this Sunday will not just help sell the song, it will help sell her.
