Britney Spears is engaged, y’all! Somewhere, K-Fed wipes away a single tear … with a Subway meatball footlong. People has confirmed the rumors that have been swirling since yesterday: Spears and boyfriend Jason Trawick are locking it down.Â Britney and her husband-to-be Jason allegedly pledged their eternal devotion to each other last night in L.A. while celebrating Trawick’s birthday. “OMG. Last night Jason surprised me with the one gift I’ve been waiting for. Can’t wait to show you! SO SO SO excited!!!! Xxo,” Britney teased earlier today on Twitter. Meanwhile, Spears’ other husband Jason Alexander is probably … Oh, who cares? BritBrit’s getting hitched! Breakout the bridesmaids tracksuits!
The two have been dating since 2009, and this past March, Spears paid Trawick what is probably the highest complement Britney can give a man she’s dating: While visiting Ryan Seacrest‘s show, she referred to their relationship as â€œreally normal.â€ Hey, as long as Jason doesn’t start recording a remix of “Popozao” or profess his affections only in front of an Elvis impersonator, they have our blessings.
Looks like Kim Kardashian’s divorce from Kris Humphries is now official. “After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage,” Kim said in a statement to E! News. “I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.” Meanwhile, new hubby Kris sounds a lot less thrilled about the announcement, saying in a statement, “I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce … I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.” They still had that new marriage smell, too!
While Kim and Kris might be ready to sign those divorce papers only 72 days after their nuptials, they are nowhere near the first celebrity couple to bail out of their wedded bliss just weeks or months after walking down the aisle. From Mario Lopez to Britney Spears, Liz Taylor to Lisa Marie Presley, let’s look back at our favorite shortest Hollywood marriages:

Carson Daly has been interviewing celebrities for quite a while now, so the guy definitely has a grasp on how to do his job, but he’s shocked over some restrictions placed on an upcoming interview he has scheduled with Britney Spears. Apparently, Spears’ management has created a long list of guidelines for Daly’s interview with Britney that he’s not thrilled about, including their request to pre-record the interview and allow them to edit it before it goes to air.
Daly tweeted “I was jst TOLD my @britneyspears interview tomm on @ampradio MUST b pre-recorded & submitted 4 approval by HER mgmt b4 it can air! F THAT! never that restricted. Even when I interviewed Michael Jackson, it wasn’t anything like this…it’s really insane.” Fellow tweeters called out Daly for being unprofessional, and he responded ” I’M UNPROFESSIONAL? FAKING AN ENTIRE INTERVIEW?… jst shocked her mgmt won’t let her do a normal interview. She probly doesn’t even know… I’ve known and supported her since she was 15. This has nothing to do w her. Just her ppl.” What’s weird is that Britney’s people let her do poo-filled stunts with the Jackass guys, but not an off-the-cuff interview with Daly.

Britney Spears performed two shows this weekend to promote her new album Femme Fatale. The first show, held at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas on Friday night, was technically a “secret” show which Spears tweeted about at the last minute on Friday, telling her fans “You’re all invited. Be there or be square bitch!” She also performed in San Francisco on Sunday. The Sunday show was sponsored by Good Morning America and part of it (the one with the least amount of crotch shots, we assume) will be broadcast on the morning show on Tuesday. Check out our gallery below for photos of her San Francisco show, and her live performance of “Hold It Against Me” after the jump.
Dang girl! We’re seeing parts of you only a license physician should see in a clinical setting. Naw, we’re just playing, but it’s true that photos of Britney Spears in Out Magazine reveal more than just her ambition. In addition to showing offer her pelvis tattoos and, let’s be honest here, her entire behind, Spears also shares which rumors really got to her in the past, including “that I was an alien” and “that I had died in a car accident.” Hmmm, so not all the rumors about you having a complete meltdown, almost having your kids taken away and/or sexing Fred Durst? Fair enough….
When discussing her new album Femme Fatale and upcoming tour, Spears also said the song from the last decade she most admired was “Eminem and Rihanna‘s ‘Love the Way You Lie,'” which seems pretty revealing to us. Britney said “Giving up your privacy” was the worst aspect of fame, though from the looks of these photos she’s not exactly interested in keeping all her parts private.

In case you’d forgot who the ultimate pop-tart really is (We’re so sorry, Gaga), Britney Spears posing topless for V Magazine will refresh your short pop culture memory. What should we keep in mind about Ms. Spears? “That the bitch is back and better than ever!” Britney tells V. Candy-colored Spears looks like something you’d find nestled in a pile of plastic grass on Easter morning, but the much more guarded singer reminds us that a girl can’t have a thirteen-year-long career, survive a marriage to KFed and attack a car with an umbrella without having a secret razor blade inside.
In her interview about her new album Femme Fatale releasing March 29 which features songs by Will.i.am and Ke$ha, Spears explains how she’s finally learning to live her life out of the public eye. “I think it’s easier to let people in when you’re younger, but when I became a mother I wanted more privacy for myself and my children. A life away from my life,” Britney muses. When asked if she was destined for fame, Spears laughs dryly, “If not, then God definitely has a strange sense of humor.” At least Britney does too, or girlfriend wouldn’t have any of that sweetness left.

Country Strong is the female Crazy Heart: a once-successful country crooner hits the bottle, destroys relationships and then sings their way to redemption. But from what we can gather from the Country Strong trailer, that film is more about the pressures of success and fame and competing with Leighton Meester than Crazy Heart was. The film’s writer and director, Shana Feste, says that she based Gwyneth Paltrow‘s substance-abusing country star on Britney Spears and Michael Jackson, whose death occurred as she was finishing her screenplay.
Feste says, “We build these artists and celebrate them, then at the first sign of weakness, we rally around their downfall. Then we want to build them back up for a comeback. How difficult to live life like that in public.” She drew from real-life performers in order to “present these characters as messy, complicated and conflicted.” And despite drawing from Britney’s life, there’s no sign of Kevin Federline anywhere in Country Strong, unfortunately. Country Strong is in theaters tomorrow.

It’s a double-edged sword, having Kevin Federline come to your defense, as he’s doing for his ex-wife Britney Spears this week. On the one hand, hey, it’s nice to have someone sticking up for you! On the other, do you want that guy sticking up for you? (We kid, mostly. Federline actually seems like he’s a decent ex-husband, bestowing his blessing on Britney when she started dating Jason Trawick.)
Britney is being sued by her former bodyguard Fernando Flores for, among other things, child abuse and sexual harassment, and K-Fed will not stand for it! He, by way of his lawyer, says that “the allegations are a product of economic motives,” and says “they are as baseless as they seem.” It’s actually kind of nice to see Kevin defend the mother (well, a mother) of his (well, some of his) children. We wonder if his statement will help Britney’s case though.
After their divorce and a subsequent legal battle, Federline was granted sole custody of the Jaden and Sean while Britney was given visitation rights.
