Wonder why Britney was in Las Vegas last week? It was rumored she was there to spend time with her dad Jamie for father's day, but reports now say she was there for business. TMZ re-affirms that Britney is in the early stages of recording a new CD in a post published today: "The album is being recorded at Maloof's Palms Casino in Las Vegas. Maloof is trying to extend his long arm into the music biz." Although there is recording in Vegas, Britney has been photographed heading into recording studios in L.A. more than 30 times this year.
Maloof, in a statement to People.com, has openly said he would like for Britney to perform at the Palms Hotel: "I'd love to have her here at the Pearl [Theater]. It would be great." Perhaps she's recording something for a 1-time Vegas special?
Britney is reportedly scheduled to work with Sean Garrett (produced "Toy Soldier," & "Kiss You All Over") in just 2 weeks. Also signed on for the 6th studio album are JR Rotem ("Everybody"), Danja ("Gimme More," "Break The Ice," "Get Back"), & Dallas Austin to name a few.
Oh and someone give Keri Hilson a call!
While I am excited that there will be a new album, I am hesitant about it too. Britney should spend the next year or two with her boys; they're still babies. She can't get a Starbucks by herself, but is expected to tour the world and promote? I don't think she's ready for that kind of commitment yet, but I am not her nor can I speak on her behalf. She'll get there.
BUT I do think it's a good idea she's out and about singing in studios and being creative. Let's just hope this album isn't being pushed on her to make some extra dough to cover the expensive legal costs.
