Britney was spotted leaving a Hollywood recording studio last night with her mother, Lynne. Britney looked casual in a pink vest and her hair tied up in a bun.
This is the third time this month that Britney has been seen recording, after sessions on the 1st and 10th of July.
Want a piece of Britney? Well, it’ll cost you $387USD (£194)! The only copy (available to buy) of the “Radar” promo CD which was sent out to radio stations before it was cancelled as an official single has sold on eBay for that price. The seller insists that all profits will be donated to a charity. Congratulations to the winning bidder, I hope it was worth it!
Six months ago she was forcibly strapped to a stretcher and placed on psychiatric hold in two different hospitals.
A judge cut off all contact with her two toddler sons.
Her “Blackout” album failed to go platinum as a deafening papaparazzi circus took the place of actual promotion.
It seemed like an irreversible slide destined to end in tragedy. That was then.
Six months later, a feisty and focused Britney Spears is putting her life back together.
“She’s the best I’ve seen her in three years,” a well-placed source in Britney’s camp told the Daily News. “She has her kids back now and she’s working on a new album. Hopefully it will be out by the end of the year.”
Britney, 26, isn’t stopping with music. She’s reading TV treatments and looking to executive produce a show in the same vein as Ashton Kutcher or Randy Jackson, the source said.
“It has to be organic to her, maybe something related to music or fashion,” the source said.
As for acting, she’s shopping for a supporting role in a romantic comedy to follow up her well-received cameo on CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother,” the source said. She also stepped in front of the camera last week when she taped a video short for the stage show of Madonna’s upcoming “Sticky & Sweet” tour.
“These are baby steps. She’s taking every opportunity to see her kids, and the last thing she’ll do is tour for three months or take the lead in a feature and be away from them again,” the source said. “Maybe she’ll go out on tour after the new year, but something short.”
Last month a judge reinstated Britney’s overnight visits with Jayden James, 1, and Sean Preston, 2, after she patched things up with divorce lawyer Laura Wasser and made a “businesslike” court appearance opposite ex-husband Kevin Federline.
“The overnight visits are great positive reinforcement for her. She almost has the equivalent of one-third custody back, and being able to care for them is enormously helpful to her progress,” another source close to the singer said.
A custody trial is set for next month, and Britney remains under a court-ordered conservatorship run by dad, Jamie Spears, at least until July 31.
It was Jamie and Britney’s once-estranged mom, Lynne, who swooped in last January, won a restraining order against mock manager Sam Lutfi and brought Larry Rudolph, who discovered Britney at 13 and built her career, back into the fold.
Now the paparazzi who snapped the minutiae of her meltdowns are filing photos of Britney hitting the gym, working on her sixth album or vacationing with fellow rehabber Mel Gibson, another client of her powerhouse criminal lawyer Blair Berk.
“She’s a true professional in the studio. She’s very focused, and she stays as long as it takes to get the job done,” said songwriter James (Jim Beanz) Washington, who’s collaborating with Britney and mega-producer Nate (Danjahandz) Hills on the new Jive Records album.
Experts say a triumphant comeback is possible if Britney stays focused.
“We heard all this talk of a comeback last year, but she wasn’t committed. She seemed committed to becoming a train wreck, not the beloved pop star,” said Morris Reid of Washington image consultancy Westin Rinehart.
“We know this woman is talented. And who knows, maybe all the pain is both a curse and a gift,” he said. “Difficult times are when some artists create their best work. She could use her music to express her feelings right now. And we all know people are interested in Britney’s feelings.”

It was a family affair Saturday as Lynne Spears hung out with Britney and her sons Preston and Jayden for an overnight visit at the star’s Studio City home.
In town since Wednesday, Lynne and Britney have been enjoying some mother-daughter bonding, shopping at the True Religion warehouse and Pottery Barn on Friday before enjoying a “girls dinner” of salad, sushi rolls, and fish at Bond St. restaurant with two of Britney’s pals.
“Britney walked in with a big smile and introduced her mom to the staff,” says an observer. “She looked gorgeous, and I have never seen her in a better mood. She was laughing the whole time she was here. Britney seemed to have the best time hanging out with her mom and friends.”
Meanwhile, dad Jamie spent the weekend at his new house in Santa Monica.

The Britney Spears beat never sleeps.
Britney’s been shooting her video for Madonna’s upcoming “Sticky & Sweet” tour in the heart of Hollywood, she’s working at the sound stage “The Lot” and our team have been stationed there around the clock to bring you all the details.
Just in, we’ve got the story on what Britney’s filming. In fact, E! has obtained the exclusive photos from behind the scenes at the shoot, inside the elevator, wearing a grey hoody, getting her makeup put on and working the moves. You’ll see those photos here on Monday. She kicks the walls, at one point screams into a camera, then climbs up the elevator, looks into another camera, and says, “It’s Britney, bitch!”

Now that Jamie Lynn Spears has given birth to adorable little Maddie Briann, mom Lynne Spears has taken some time to head from her Louisiana home to enjoy some quality time with older daughter, Britney Spears.
First, Lynne joined Brit at the recording studio Thursday night, where the singer is working on a follow-up to last year’s Blackout.
And then earlier on Friday, mom and daughter partook in a nice little shopping spree. Joined by her Brit’s assistant Brett and Lynne’s best friend Jackie the foursome (Britney attempted to hide in the backseat of one car) drove over to the True Religion jean warehouse in Vernon, Calif.
According to witnesses, the four women went “hog wild” at the giant warehouse, scouring the racks and leaving with oversized shopping bags under their arms. Referring to the tight-fit jeans she picked up, Brit was overheard saying to her assistant, “I’m feeling skinnier now, so…”
Insiders tell OK! that Britney’s relationship with True Religion, famous for their low-rise, hip-baring jeans, is basically the same as the understanding she has at the Ed Hardy warehouse, where she is free to roam to rows and rows and rows of clothes and pull whatever she wants.
But despite Friday’s shopping spree, it’s likely that the sexy slacks will be left in Britney’s closet next Tuesday when she heads to court for her final scheduled custody hearing before the case goes to trial in August.

Here’s the scoop, bitch.
Cameras started to roll today on the video that Britney Spears is making for Madonna‘s upcoming Sticky & Sweet tour, which, sources tell E! News, will be the opening video for each show.
The “Are you ready to rumble?!” video, if you will.
The shoot took place today at the Lot in West Hollywood, the former site of Warner Hollywood, United Artists and the Samuel Goldwyn Studios.
An on-set source said that Britney arrived at around 9 a.m. and was holed up in her dressing room by 9:30. The “Toxic” singer didn’t start shooting her scenes until noon.
According to our insiders, the planned “short movie” will take place inside an elevator, where seven cameras will be strategically placed to capture the magic. The scene-by-scene breakdown goes like this:
Britney, partially disguised by a gray hoodie, walks into the elevator. As she starts traveling upward, she seems particularly nervous and anxious. The popster starts pacing back and forth. Then she progresses to kicking and smacking the walls, all frantic-like. She screams into one of the cameras. Then she starts climbing the wall, pulls down her hood and, into another camera, says:
“It’s Britney, bitch.”
Well, at least she shouldn’t have trouble remembering her lines.
We’re told that the 26-year-old mother of two acted “very professional” throughout and, a day after the shoot was postponed due to technical difficulties, everything seemed to be back on schedule.
Meanwhile, despite rumors that Madonna was going to wing her way west for a quick set visit, the Material Girl stayed put in New York today. According to a witness privy to her comings and goings, she went to her studio this morning and then returned to her Manhattan apartment.
Where, if Madonna weren’t used to the current tabloid climate, she would have bolted the door, drawn the shades and pulled the covers over her head.
But she probably just ate lunch.

Britney Spears is collaborating with Madonna again, and the embattled singer is psyched to reunite with her idol, says a pal.
The pop icons are teaming up to film a segment that is expected to be part of Madonna’s upcoming Sticky & Sweet tour. “Britney is excited, but in a grown up way,” says the source, who has seen the singer through her recent ups-and-downs. “She has come a long way in the last year.”
In fact Spears, who has gone to a lightened baby blonde hair color for the shoot, arrived at 9 a.m. Wednesday to begin filming her segment at The Lot in West Hollywood.
According to the source, Spears, 26, who used to make headlines for her late-night outings and reckless driving, has been showing new signs of maturity. “She has settled down and is full of life but not childish,” says the pal. Under the supervision of her father, Jamie, Britney regained overnight visits with her sons, Preston, 2, and Jayden, 1, and has also re-teamed with her former manager, Larry Rudolph.
“Working with Madonna is a dream, but I think she feels like it’s one she’s earned,” says the pal. “She’s respectful but full of her own ideas about the work.”
The friend also maintains that Spears has also regained her focus, both mentally and professionally. “I think that so many people have no idea that Britney is fully aware of what’s going on. She may not always have been, but she is now,” says the pal. “And she is – if not in control – in partnership with her father and her managers in her future.”
