So how's that tour going

I haven't been, as you might imagine, following Britney Spears' Circus Tour with all that much attention. The spring in the US, summer in europe (how old style that sounds!) and then the fall again in the US wasn't it?

The new album is (just about to come?) out, the single 3 has been around a few weeks. So, umm, anyone know how the tour has been doing?

Is it the biggest grossing tour of the year already? Or is that someone else?

Britney Spears 3 lyrics

Britney Spears 3, her new single, is now out and here are the lyrics:

1, 2, 3
Not only you and me
Got one eighty degrees
And I'm caught in between
1, 2, 3
Peter, Paul & Mary
Gettin' down with 3P
Everybody loves ***

Babe, pick a night
To come out and play
If it's alright
What do you say?

Merrier the more
Triple fun that way
Twister on the floor
What do you say?

Are - you in
Livin' in sin is the new thing (yeah)
Are - you in
I am countin'!

1, 2, 3
Not only you and me
Got one eighty degrees
And I'm caught in between
1, 2, 3
Peter, Paul & Mary
Gettin' down with 3P
Everybody loves ***

Three is a charm
Two is not the same
I don't see the harm
So are you game?

Lets' make a team
Make 'em say my name
Lovin' the extreme
Now are you game?

Are - you in
Livin' in sin is the new thing
Are - you in
I am countin'!

1, 2, 3
Not only you and me
Got one eighty degrees
And I'm caught in between
1, 2, 3
Peter, Paul & Mary
Gettin' down with 3P
Everybody loves ***

What we do is innocent
Just for fun and nothin' meant
If you don't like the company
Let's just do it you and me
You and me...
Or three....
Or four....
- On the floor!

If you want more about Britney Spears' 3, more than just the lyrics, then there is this article: Britney Spear's 3 lyrics plus a change to hear the song itself.

Not entirely sure that it's worth it, but for those who like Britney Spears pewrhaps it is.

Britney Spears tour

Having managed to get over divorce from that dope, Kevin Federline, Britney Spears is now on tour with her stage show, Circus.

The show has been around the US, is now progressing through Europe and in the near future will go badck to the US for a second bite at that cherry.

As you would expect from a dancer who doesn't have all that much of a singing voice, the show is very heavy on the spectacle and choreography, rather light on Britney Spears actually doing any singing.

Still, if that's what the public wants then the public deserves to get it, good and hard, don't you think?

Britney Spears Tour

The Briteny Spears tour carries on across the world. Britney Spears is touring with her new show "Circus" and is taking in parts of the world that she's never been before. A cynic might say that there is a Britney Spears tour because the records aren't selling all that well. The Britney Spears tour thus provides an income of a different sort, one that allows the whole circus to stay on the road.

Britney Spears announced on her website today that she'll tour Australia for the first time in her career.  "The Circus Starring Britney Spears" - which first debuted in New Orleans in March and features dancers, magicians, clowns and acrobats - will go Down Under beginning Nov. 6.

"I've wanted to tour Australia for quite some time and now it's finally happening," Spears says on the website. "My Circus tour is the best show I have ever created, and I can't wait to perform it for all of my Australian fans. See you guys soon!"

The Britney Spears tour is of course also taking in parts of the world where she's been before:

The troubled singer’s comeback tour will gross $100m. But is it a return to form or just another blip on her downward spiral?

Britney has divorced, lost custody of her children and suffered a very public breakdown — prompting fears that her latest renaissance is just a flash in the panOnce upon a time — it seems like an age ago — a 16-year-old dancer from backwoods Louisiana was lucky enough to record a serviceable piece of Swedish pop, make a saucy video for it sporting a sexed-up school uniform and watch the resulting confection, Baby One More Time, shoot to the top of the charts across the Western world.

That was the Britney Spears of then — the young, not-so-innocent, blond pop idol adored by teens and pre-teens alike. She might have had only a so-so voice, but she was certainly blessed with all the right moves.

Over the next few years, as she hit the celebrity stratosphere with her follow-up hits Oops! I Did It Again and Toxic, Britney’s mother insisted with a straight face that she was still a virgin and also insisted, with an even straighter face, in spite of ample photographic evidence to the contrary, that she had never, ever had breast implants.

Actually, that piece there about the Britney Spears tour is even more cynical than I am .....something wrong, surely, when a newspaper is more so that I am.

Britney Spears has another reason to keep touring other than restoring her reputation and replenishing her purse.

When on tour, she gets to spend more time with her children. The pop princess has two kids, Sean, 3, and Jayden, 2, with ex-husband and would-be rapper Kevin Federline.

The TMZ website says: “Lawyers for Britney and Kevin Federline have

filed docs with the family law Commissioner Scott Gordon, stating they have

reached a new temporary custody arrangement.”

It reports Britney can have custody of her children while on her Circus tour more than 50 per cent of the time.

The celebs' lawyers have agreed which days each of them get the kids, and when the tour ends the custody returns to a 50/50 split.

How about that? As a result of the tour Britney gets to share custody of her kids. That'll save some of the money she's been having to pay Kevin as well, won't it?

Britney Spears, as famous for generating tabloid headlines as she is as a worldwide pop music icon, will be in Grand Forks on Sept. 12 as part of her new “Circus” concert tour, an event some believe could be as big as the 2002 Cher concert in the Alerus Center.

“This is so big, it has its own zip code,” an elated Steve Hyman, executive director of the Alerus Center, said of Wednesday’s announcement.

Spears is in the middle of an eight-night run of her “Circus” tour in London, to be followed by arena shows in other European cities. She’ll launch the second leg of her tour Aug. 20 in Hamilton, Ont., followed by shows on the East Coast and in the South.

She’ll be in Detroit on Sept. 8, Chicago on Sept. 9, Des Moines, Iowa, on Sept. 11, the Alerus Center in Grand Forks on Sept. 12 and Tulsa, Okla., on Sept. 15. That’s it for shows in the Midwest. She will not be appearing in Fargo or Winnipeg, chief among Grand Forks’ competitors for big shows.

Jason Trawick

Jason Trawick has been Britney Spears' talent agent for some time now. And it appears that Jason Trawick has changed his job description a little, to being both Britney's talent manager and her date.

According to E! News, Britney Spears has been secretly dating her agent, Jason Trawick. Trawick (37) is a William Morris rep, and has so far joined Spears on the first four shows of her "Circus" tour. When reached by E!, Trawick declined to comment on the nature of the relationship, (which means they're totally dating) but his assistant did confirm that he's been traveling with Spears but is now back in LA.

There are thow who say that Jason Travick's activities are nothing to do with dating though:

A rep from the William Morris Agency, Trawick joined Spears on the first four shows of her Circus tour, but the two are supposedly getting cozy outside of work as well.

Though Trawick and Spears' rep declined to comment, Trawick's assistant at WMA confirmed that he had been traveling with Spears on the Circus tour and is now back in L.A.

Another insider on the Spears team insists that the singer has a "close professional relationship"with Trawick and that it is "ridiculous"to suggest the pair is "romantic."

Trawick and Britney did go on holiday together last year, this is true:

Jason Trawick and Britney went on vacation together in Costa Rica last year. You can view pictures of Britney and Jason Trawick here. It makes perfect sense that she hangs out with her 37-year-old talent manager. If she is really dating him perhaps he will be good for her. He is older and presumably wiser then others she has dated.

But quite whether that amounts to the two dating is a little less obvious. Relationships in the entertainment industry, especially between talent and the managers that represent it, include all sorts of close relationships that don't amount to "dating".

Trawick declined to comment and referred E!'s request to Spears rep, who has did not comment on the singer's relationship status.
Meanwhile, a Spears' insider insists that the singer and the agent strictly have a "close professional relationship" and that's it, calling it "ridiculous" to suggest the pair is anything close to "romantic."
But another well-placed source tells E! News that Trawick's talent agency bosses are OK with his tight bond with his client and, in fact, "They joke about it."
Trawick, 37, has been Spears' talent agent for about five years and has been credited with helping Spears reunite with her parents, manager Larry Rudolph, and landing her comeback role on 'How I Met Your Mother.'

At the moment whether Trawick and Britney are indeed dating seems to be a matter of "he said" and "she said" and a large dollop of innuendo.

So I don't actually think we know as yet.

Britney Spears biopic?

Britney Spears mother, Lynne wants her book Through The Storm turned into a film and wants Julia Roberts to play her.

The book which charts Britney's run-ins with drink, drugs and teenage-sex and currently being hawked around Hollywood by Mrs Spears.

A friend is quoted as saying, "She's pitching the book around to studios. She even says she wants Julia Roberts to play her. It's insane!"

This latest chapter in the Spears household is unlikely to bring Britney and her mother any closer.  The pair fell out when Britney split from Kevin Federline.  A "friend" of Britney's claims Britney said, "She will do anything to get herself more famous and make money off my name. It's just unreal. If I could cut her out of my life completely, I would."

I have to ask why would any mother do this?  Other than a big pile of cash and a loss of respect what else is Lynne Spears hoping for?

Britney thanks Daddy

Britney Spears has finally come out in a interview and thanked Dad, Jamie for interceding in her life.  Britney says, "My father saved my life. I probably wouldn't be here if it wasn't for him. I've not always been a good daughter; but he basically gave up his job and his life to look after me at a time when I wasn't even sure I wanted to go on living. I owe him my life."

Britney who is now well on the road to recovery will be part of the opening of this year's VMA awards. Britney will not be performing but according to MTV Networks Music Group President Van Toffler her part will be "fun and unexpected."

Britney Spears settles custody battle with Kevin Federline

Pop singer Britney and dancer ex-husband K-Fed have settled their acrimonious and long-running custody fight over their two children, Sean and Jayden.

Details are a little confused, with Federline's lawyer saying that his client retained sole custody and Spears' attorney saying Federline did not have permanent custody of the children.  It seems the deal gives Spears' more time with the children and Federline more money to spend on them.
