Maddie is ‘awake and talking’

Britney’s niece, Jamie Lynn Spears’ daughter, Maddie, is ‘awake and talking’ after nearly drowning, according to a statement from the the Spears family representatives.

“With her father, mother and stepfather by her side, Maddie regained consciousness mid-day Tuesday, February 7. The 8-year-old daughter of Jamie Lynn Spears was involved in an ATV accident at a family home Sunday in Kentwood, La. Paramedics resuscitated her and she was airlifted to a local hospital. She is aware of her surroundings and recognizes those family members who have kept a round-the-clock vigil since the accident. Doctors were able to remove the ventilator today and she is awake and talking. Maddie continues to receive oxygen and is being monitored closely but it appears that she has not suffered any neurological consequences from the accident.”

The police report said that on Sunday, Maddie was driving an ATV within view of Jamie Lynn and her husband Jamie Watson when she took a hard right to avoid running over a nearby drainage ditch, causing the vehicle to enter the pond on the property. Within seconds Jamie Lynn, Jamie and other family members reached the pond, dove in and attempted to rescue the child to no avail, as Maddie was trapped and secured by the seatbelt and the ATV’s safety netting. Within two minutes, Acadian Ambulance Services arrived and assisted in freeing her from the cold waters.

Jamie Lynn’s daughter injured in accident

Britney’s niece, Maddie, daughter of Jamie Lynn Spears, is reportedly in a critical but stable condition after suffering injuries in an all-terrain vehicle accident in Louisiana.

Britney has posted on Instagram, “‪Need all the wishes and prayers for my niece,” whilst her spokesperson said: “The details the media are reporting surrounding the incident regarding Jamie Lynn’s daughter Maddie are incorrect. Right now, the Spears family asks that everyone respect their privacy during this time and appreciates all the prayers and support for their family.” Britney’s father added, “All I can say is pray for our baby Maddie.”

Britney talks to “THINK” magazine

Britney is quoted in January 2017’s “THINK” magazine, talking about her current situation in life and her career, and mentioning the possibility of touring. She said: “I’ve been very hands-on with everything I’ve done since I had my children and it’s just really important for me to understand the big picture. Where everybody’s coming from, what’s the real purpose of this shoot and this song, or whatever it is in that moment that I’m doing.”

On touring and her Vegas show, she said: “I’m hoping we can do some touring! It’ll be fun to see my fans from overseas who haven’t been able to make it out to Vegas!”

“Rolling Stone” pick “Glory” as 5th best pop album of 2016

“Rolling Stone” magazine have named “Glory” the 5th best pop album of 2016, just behind the Monkees, Tove Lo, Rihanna and the 1975.

On “Glory,” they said: “After 2013’s more personal, though often tepid, Britney Jean, Britney Spears’ Glory felt like a breath of fresh electro-pop air. A star-studded array of pop’s strongest producers and writers – including Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter, Cashmere Cat, BloodPop and more – helped elevate the LP to the levels of dance perfection seen on 2007’s Blackout. Single “Make Me” allows Spears to thrive at her coo-iest, and she shines as a Eurotrash sex robot on the electric “Do You Wanna Come Over?” Even the softer moments like the sweeping “Just Luv Me” and the whisper-y “Better” have Spears at her liveliest in years.”

Britney talks to ‘Vegas Player’ about Piece of Me and more

It’s roughly one hour before Britney Spears will take the stage for another performance of her hit Las Vegas show, Britney: Piece of Me, when she smiles and leaps out of a chair. Hair and makeup complete, Britney’s ready. But first, the pop star makes a beeline to a small area backstage where she meets with anywhere from two to three dozen eager fans. As she poses for pictures and greets each of them, another sellout crowd is making its way into The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. Photos complete, she runs back to her green room to dress for her opening number, Work Bitch.

It all happens in what seems like a flash. For Britney, it’s a routine she’s perfected over the past couple years. In fact, when it comes to green-room demands, Britney is rather easy. The girl from Kentwood, Louisiana simply requires some sweet iced tea, a few candles (she says they calm her nerves) and a CD player. “Yes, I still use CDs,” she admits, then adds. “Believe it or not, I still do get a bit nervous before I go onstage. But once the show starts and I hear the roar of the crowd, I’m totally energized.”

Now entering its third year, Britney: Piece of Me, has become one of the city’s top-selling, and most talked about, shows. “Vegas has really been a fabulous experience for me. I say it all the time, it’s become like a second home,” Britney explains. “I love everything about it.”

That includes dinners at MR CHOW, hitting the shops and lounging by the pool. She’s learned to make Las Vegas home.
