We are so excited about the launch of Britney's perfume "Curious" by Elizabeth Arden which is now available in department stores!
Britney had such a fun time in New York this week. She was lucky enough to stay at the Mandarin Oriental. It's brand new hotel located in the Time Warner Building. Britney said her room was gorgeous, the view of Central Park & the city's skyline was breathtaking and the hotel had a fabulous spa!
On Tuesday, there was an event held at Macy's so Britney could meet all the executives who worked so hard on helping to create her fragrance and she also met with 150 of her fans. The decor in the room they used for Britney's meet & greet with the fans was precious. It was set up to replicate a dressing room and had a pink couch, fluffy pillows, dim lighting, a plushy throw rug on the floor, costumes from her Onyx Hotel Tour hanging up along the wall and it even had a little section where they set up a hair & make-up area to complete the 'dressing room' vibe. Britney thought the room was adorable and enjoyed meeting with her fans.
After the Macy's event, Britney went to see the Broadway musical "Wicked" that we have been hearing so many rave reviews about. The reviews did NOT disappoint, she thought the play was fabulous! The show is about the untold story of the witches of Oz and basically provides another way to look at "The Wizard of Oz" with a really great moral behind it. Indina Menzel, Jennifer Laura Thompson and Joey McIntyre were the leads and Britney thought they all did an outstanding job. I have to go see this myself, the next time I'm in New York. As they say in New England, the show was "Wicked" good!
Speaking of New England, this morning Britney flew to Boston so she could finally see her Foundation Room at the Onyx Hotel and sign the wall. She called to tell me how much she loved the room and how she spent about 10 minutes looking at all of the collectibles in the Curio cabinet. It made me so happy to hear how much she enjoyed how the room turned out.
Jamie Lynn's show is wrapping at the end of this week and we have been filming on the beach since Monday. She is looking forward to the wrap party this weekend. This is always such a bittersweet feeling. We are both very excited to go home, but are sure to miss everyone we've become close with throughout the summer.
By the time you read this, Britney's "My Prerogative" video will have debuted on TRL- we all hope you love it! I can't wait to see the final version myself!
