Ever since pop princess turned national train wreck, Britney Spears, made headlines shaving her head in a desperate cry for help, and subsequently checking in (and out) of rehab, hard core fans have always kept the faith that the once mega-star would be able to turn her life around. After the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards fiasco where Spears appeared low-energy and nervous while halfheartedly performing her routine, critics were quick to forecast her permanent career demise.
In late March, Spears was cast in a much anticipated role of a homely receptionist in CBS’s hit show, How I Met Your Mother, showing she is on the fast track to a recovery. Spears’ days have been documented almost around the clock showing the singer running in and out of dance rehearsals at the posh Millennium Dance Complex, and having low-key dinners with a supportive circle of friends and family.
In a recent report from Showbizspy.com, Spears is now rumored to be in “secret talks” for a comeback tour that is estimated to be worth $1 million. This could be just what the starlet would need to put her troubled past behind her and use her experience as a catalyst for fresh work.
Spears’ record label execs at BMG are confident that a comeback with a better-than-ever image can and will be achieved. “Things are looking up for Britney,” said a source. “She’s finally focusing on her career again.”
