It's Britney, Bitches!

Her career has already withstood more train wrecks than Amtrak, and now it looks like Britney Spears is on the upswing one more time. Spears' new single "Womanizer," the lead single from her Circus album (dropping today), which she performed today on Good Morning America (above), is a recent Billboard No. 1  (the ninth of her decade-long career) and set a new record for first-week downloads with 286,000. Personally, Rocks Off hasn't enjoyed a Spears song this much since, hell, at least "Toxic."

Spears was on the ABC morning show to announce her "The Circus Starring Britney Spears 2009 Tour," a mouthful of a jaunt that kicks off March 3 and pulls into Toyota Center March 30, with special guests the Pussycat Dolls and hopefully at least one lion tamer. She certainly makes a more fetching ringmaster than this guy.

Tickets go on sale Saturday; see Spears' Web site for information. - Chris Gray

Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
