Britney Spears was all smiles yesterday afternoon as she emerged from a hair salon in West Hollywood with a full head of new, straightened hair. Additionally, a “pal” of Britney‘s dishes to People magazine that she is “excited” to be working with Madonna again for her new Sticky & Sweet World Tour (you may recall that Maddy enlisted Britney‘s help, asking her to appear in video segments that will be shown on massive video screens during her concert show). Even tho E! Online reports that technical difficulties have pushed back production on Britney‘s filmed video segments, everything is still a go for the collabo to take place this week. Here are pics of Britney showing off her new weave yesterday afternoon:
Britney Spears will soon collaborate 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.” 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 … “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 … 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. And she is – if not in control – in partnership with her father and her managers in her future.”
I think it’s clear to pretty much everyone that Britney has gotten her life back on track, it’s great to know that she’s been making great progress behind the scenes as well. I think this collabo with Madonna is a brilliant move … I loved it when they teamed up the first time and I’m totally on board for this second round of cooperation. As I mentioned before, tho, E! is reporting that set delays have caused a minor road bump in the video production but that things should be back on track today:
Britney Spears and Madonna’s latest hookup has been temporarily derailed by a technical glitch. Spears had been scheduled to begin shooting a video montage for Madonna’s upcoming tour this morning at the Lots soundstage in Hollywood. But production insiders say that because the set was not finished in time, cameras will not roll until tomorrow. The set features an elevator, in, around and on which Spears will dance. “The video will be very deep,” a source in the Spears camp tells E! News. “You’ve never seen Britney like this before. It will blow your mind.”
All other information about this video collabo is being kept under lock and key, which I think is smart. Reports of what exactly this video piece is all about are bound to make their way around the Interweb once Madonna‘s tour gets underway in Cardiff, UK — even then, I’m not sure I want to know. I’m sure I won’t be able to resist reading about this new Madonna/Britney collaboration but I think I’d much prefer finding out what the big secret is until I can see it for myself … but that ain’t gonna happen. In any event, things continue to look up for our dear Britney. I still can’t believe she’s been able to turn her life around so successfully, so quickly. Woot!
