While most of the music industry (including her exes Justin Timberlake and Kevin Federline) was prepping for the Grammys last weekend, Britney Spears, 25, was in New York, on her way to earning the award for hardest partying solo artist. On February 3, Spears was spotted out drunk and dressed “inappropriately,” pals say. Her trip only went downhill from there. In the following days, Spears went on a spending spree, dipped her unwashed hand in a plate of bathroom mints, and stripped down to a bikini at a club. Her week-long trip hit its lowest point on Feb. 10, when Spears threw up on herself after partying too hard at club Tenjune. Spears was supposed to be in town for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, but her exploits suggest she was more interested in Malibu & Coke than Dolce & Gabbana.
“I’d love to see her get focused,” JC Chasez, a friend and former bandmate of Spears ex, Justin Timberlake, tells Us.
The divorced mother of two is looking back at happier times, the ones she spent involved with “SexyBack” singer Justin Timberlake. In New York City during Fashion Week, Britney often found comfort in the music of her former beau, who was also in town. “Every time one of Justin’s videos comes on,” a friend of the “Toxic” singer tells OK!, “Britney always begins to smile.” Britney isn’t the only once reminiscing about the past. At his Feb.7 concert at Madison Square Garden, Justin skimmed the VIP section, looking for, as one onlooker speculated, Britney in the crowd.
