New Britney Song Title Revealed: "Pulse"

Written by admin. Posted in Blackout

A new Britney song title has been registered on the ASCAP database, called “Pulse”.

It was written by the writing team GHOST, comprising of  Joe Belmatti, Mich Hedin Hansen, Mikkel Sigvardt and Lorne Alistair Tenant.

The song was probably recorded during the “Blackout” sessions. Who knows if we’ll ever get to hear it, there are already tons of Britney songs we haven’t had the pleasure of listening to…

Britney Hits New York City With Adnan

Written by admin. Posted in Personal Issues

Wednesday afternoon at a small airport in Van Nuys, Calif., Britney Spears and her married boyfriend, paparazzo Adnan Ghalib, boarded a private jet bound for New York City.

Hours later, the pair hit the ground at New Jersey’s Teterboro Airport, 12 miles west of Manhattan. Of course, as has become par for the course with Brit-Brit, the paparazzi (including ones she hasn’t dated!) were eagerly awaiting her arrival.

According to a witness on the site, police prevented the gathered photogs from following Brit and her beau as they headed toward the Big Apple.

Meanwhile, sources close to Britney’s custody war with ex-hubby Kevin Federline tell OK! that any vacation the pop star might be having will likely be short-lived, as there is a hearing scheduled on Monday, Jan. 14, to determine whether or not Britney’s visitation rights will be reinstated, and it’s highly likely that the court will want to speak to Brit directly before making its decision.

Britney's Parents Not Happy With Dr Phil

Written by admin. Posted in Personal Issues

Britney Spears’s family is accusing Dr. Phil McGraw of violating their trust by making public statements about his hospital visit with the troubled pop star and his call for her to receive therapy.

Family spokesman Lou Taylor, a business manager for mother Lynne and daughter Jamie Lynn Spears, appeared on Wednesday’s Today show and also said that at no time had the family planned to do a show with McGraw, despite his statements about such a program. (McGraw later said the scheduled episode would not go on as originally planned.)

“It was decided it would be detrimental to ever do that,” said Taylor, who described McGraw’s request for such a show in the first place to be “self-serving.” She also said that McGraw has now “compromised” Lynne and Jamie Lynn’s relationship with Britney.

Taylor confirmed that McGraw had been sent to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Saturday to meet with Britney at the request of the family, and that Lynne Spears and McGraw’s wife, Robin, know one another.

Asked by Today’s Meredith Vieira if McGraw had ever treated Britney on any previous occasions, Taylor replied, “Not to my knowledge.”

‘He Made a Statement’
After his visit, McGraw issued the following statement to Entertainment Tonight: “My meeting with Britney and some of her family members this morning in her room at Cedars leaves me convinced more than ever that she is in dire need of medical and psychological intervention … ”

“What’s wrong with Dr. Phil’s statement,” said Taylor, “is that he made a statement. The family, basically, extended an invitation of trust for him to come in as a resource to support them, not to go out and make public statements.”

She added, “He was not invited to make this part of a public display or part of the media.”

Describing Lynne Spears as “a mother who is heartbroken, just to be separated from her daughter,” Taylor said Lynne and Jamie Lynn “were looking for support here, not to add to the trouble that is already upon them.”

Britney Invites A Paparazzo Into Her House

Written by admin. Posted in Personal Issues

Her music of choice for evening outings? — Timbaland’s “Shock Value,” of course!

So, here’s what Brit talked about while our photog was driving her home:

“Can you take me to the Summit house, please?”

Then she hopped in and rode shotgun …

She broke out her cell phone and was sending text messages the entire time. She paused for a few words to Carla:

“Can you get someone to pick up the car?”

She put in Timbaland’s “Shock Value” and got her groove on.

When asked about her weekend with Adnan, she got quiet and said solemnly:

“Uh, it was fine.”

That question brought her mood down a bit and she started to text again. She was preoccupied with whomever she was communicating with.

Our photog then snapped his fingers and said, “Hey, girl; are you alright?” He told her not to worry; he’d help her. She laughed.

He pulled up to her neighborhood gate and went past the guard. She said:

“Let’s go inside. But leave the damn camera in the car.”

They walked into her kitchen — large, with a huge center island with marble countertop. Our photog said the place was beautiful and spotless. There was a portrait of Brit with Jayden and Sean Preston on the wall between the kitchen and living room. London, her dog, was there, with her other small dog. Our photog played with them for a minute. No one else was in the house.

Brit said:

“Can you take care of my car?”

All the lights were on in the house; Brit asked our guy to close her front door.

Mr. X17 asked Brit if he could take a picture and she said:

“Don’t be lame.”

She gave our guy the keys to her car and he left.

A moment in the life of Britney!

Britney's Car Gets Impounded After Abandoning It

Written by admin. Posted in Personal Issues

Britney Spears’s wild ride left the troubled pop star car-less Monday night, after cops impounded her abandoned vehicle.

“Ms. Spears’s car was impounded,” Lt. David Grimes of the Los Angeles Police Department, West L.A. station, said – after a flat tire had caused the troubled pop star to leave her white Mercedes in the middle of the road in Brentwood, Calif.

“Officers on the scene told me it was blocking the roadway,” said Grimes, “and that it was unsafe enough to leave at the location.”

After she had left the car, Spears – who had ventured away from her Studio City home to go to a drugstore – was given a lift by some of the photographers who had been trailing her.

As for her Mercedes, “It was towed by a private company that’s contracted with the city,” said Grimes. “Her car is being held at the official police garage tow yard.”

The standard pricing at the Quicksilver Towing facility is a $104 towing fee, plus $32 for each day it remains in the tow yard. If the car isn’t picked up within 30 days, it gets put up for auction, an employee told PEOPLE.

Regarding the status of the impounded vehicle, spokesman Grimes said, “There’s not a hold on the vehicle. She just needs to show up to obtain it. She’ll have to pay tow fees, and that total cost depends on how many days she leaves it there.”

He added, “But she won’t get any citations or fines.”

After photographers dropped the pop star and her assistant off at home, the two jumped into a Toyota Camry and went to the Four Seasons hotel in Los Angeles.
