Britney Back in Vegas to Record for New Album and Get a Makeover


Luxe Life can report first that Britney Spears is back in Vegas tonight, but this time it's all work and very little play for the controversial pop princess. Luxe Life can also report that she is getting a total makeover as part of her new-found committment to her comeback.

Britney is in Las Vegas through the weekend at the Recording Studio at the Palms laying down two new tracks for her long-awaited album. She is in the studio working with record producer Dr. Luke, who has written hits and produced for some of the biggest names on the charts. Kelly Clarkson, local favorite Pink, Avril Lavigne, Lady Sovereign and Chris Daughtry, who recently performed at the request of Paula Abdul at her Nevada Ballet "Woman of the Year" festivities at the Wynn over last weekend, are just some of the names on his resume.

Britney is finally taking her comeback seriously it seems. Luxe Life has learned that there are no plans for Britney to go out on the town maintaining her reckless party gal reputation as she is very focused on completing tracks for the album. Britney is also reportedly working with the Pet Shop Boys on this album as she is a big fan of the remixes the duo did for Madonna.

Britney is taking her comeback commitment to her personal appearance as well. She is, at this hour, halfway complete with a 4-hour total makeover at the AMP Salon inside the Palms under the careful guidance of Hairstylist to the Stars, Michael Boychuck. The makeover includes a manicure, pedicure, extensions and highlights to soften her appearance with her recently dark-colored hair.

Britney is staying in one of the expensive sky villas in the Palms Fantasy tower, but this visit, she is not in the $40,000 a night Hugh Hefner suite.
