Howie Day, the singer/songwriter best known by some for his tender love songs, by others for the time he locked a fan in a bathroom on his tour bus after she refused his sexual advances, and by me for playing the Towson University cafeteria while I ate a turkey BLT in 2002 is rumored to be Britney Spears’ newest rehab love interest. According to Life & Style (via MSNBC):
Spears met Day while the two were at rehabbing at Promises in Malibu â€œand fell hard for himâ€ reports the mag, which claims that sheâ€™s going to bring him as her date when she attends her cousin Erinâ€™s wedding on June 2.
â€œBritney just lights up and seems back to her old self when she talks to Howie or tells people about him,â€ an â€œinsiderâ€ tells the mag. â€œShe thinks heâ€™s very talented â€” and says heâ€™s the best kisser ever!â€
It seems oddly appropriate that Howie Day (a poor man’s John Mayer) would hook up with the 2007 version of Britney Spears (a broke man’s Jessica Simpson). I really hope these two can make their rehab love last… for Britney’s sake. The last thing that girl needs is to be locked in a bathroom right now. Best of luck you two!
Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s lunchtime, and I’m really in the mood for a turkey BLT for some reason.
