Britney addresses fans about her life

I just wanted to reach out to all of you and explain some of the things that I have been faced with recently. It’s so funny how many stories are put out there about people. It’s like we all want our side of the story out there as well, but at the end of the day only a few people care to hear what is really going on since the bad is always so much more interesting than the truth. I don’t know why, but this is so weird to me.

Britney performs in Orlando House of Blues

Britney played her 20minute set as The M+M’s at the Orlando House Of Blues last night, performing the same set as she performed at the previous dates. During “Do Somethin'”, Britney’s backing track CD began to skip; ever the professional, Britney continued singing live over the top, and freestyled with her dancers until the CD returned in sync. The crowd cheered, and Britney thanked them for coming out to see her at the end of every song she performed, saying “Thanks for coming, Orlando! I love you!”

Kara DioGuardi talks about Britney

Songwriter and producer, Kara DioGuardi, who is collaborating with Britney Spears on her upcoming album, tells “People” magazine that the two of them were in the recording studio Monday alongside J.R. Rotem, and that the singer “works really hard.”

“People don’t realise what a good singer she is, and she has the incredible ability to put herself in the music and it elevates the song, because she really brings her own vibe to it. I just hope her comeback is awesome, because if anybody deserves it, it’s her.”

The reason for his letter is to let everyone know that their prayers have truly helped me.

“Las Vegas Review Journal” talks to Britney’s back-up dancer

Britney Spears may have been keeping her new short haircut under wraps in public, but one of her backup dancers for her recent House Of Blues shows as the M+M’s says “she looks so good she should model.” Crisilla Crossland told “Las Vegas Review Journal” that Britney even jokingly asked her dancers, “Would y’all cut your hair?” though none took her up on the offer.

Crisilla also reports that Britney has been rehearsing to new brand new tracks from her forthcoming fifth CD, and that they are ‘amazing’. Pussycat Dolls founder, Robin Antin, who saw Britney’s shows last week said “I’m just so happy for her right now. She’s been working really hard. She choreographed all of those shows herself. She’s such a talented girl.”

Ne-Yo talks about Britney’s comeback

Ne-Yo has hailed Britney Spears’ live comeback on Tuesday night – insisting she is still a “great entertainer”. The hitmaker and writer behind songs such as Rihanna’s “Unfaithful” and Beyonce’s “Irreplaceable,” who is working with Britney on her 5th album, believes she has what it takes to get back on top. He says, “I don’t really care what people think about her personally. You can’t take away from her that she’s a great entertainer and I think there’s still a spot for her in this business.”

He also spoke about the songs he has been writing for the record, saying he has been working closely with her A&R people, avoiding songs that are about her ex-husband. “I don’t want to give away too much, but I wrote one song for her called “Impossible,” and it’s basically saying nothing is impossible. She’s like the underdog right now. Everybody is really questioning her. Does she have the mental stability to do it again? One of my favourite lyrics in the song is “doubt me, I want you to. I want you to think I’m drowning in myself, but baby know after what I’ve been through, lessons learned, stories told, I know that nothing is impossible.”

The M+Ms show hits San Diego

Britney left her house in her own car and met up with a tour bus filled with dancers in a parking lot near her home to head to San Diego to perform as The M+M’s at the House Of Blues. Britney’s tour bus was pulled over by the police just north of San Diego on the way there, as they had gotten 911 calls from other motorists complaining that the bus was moving too slowly. At a gas station, some dancers got off the bus alongside Ali, but in 15 minutes, they were all back on board and back on the freeway ready to arrive in time for Britney’s show. They arrived early in the evening where Britney was met by crowds of paparazzi and fans, entering the venue from the tour bus, alongside her dancers.
