Britney’s Hotel Demands

When Britney Spears checks in to London’s posh Dorchester Hotel for the British leg of her “Circus” tour, she can expect the hotel’s staff to be ready for her—because she’s already presented them with her list what she demands from them.

CBS News reports the pop princess has a rider telling what she wants, including a room that has “never” been smoked in at all, several humidifiers, a selection of magazines, fresh flowers, DVDs of her favorite Marilyn Monroe films, chick lit novels, 100 watt light bulbs, a map of running routes for Hyde Park, and a list of alternate routes between the hotel and her 02 Arena concert venue to confuse the paps.

Why a non-smoking room for someone who obviously smokes? Good luck on finding “a room that has ‘never’ been smoked in at all” in a hotel built in 1931—more than 70 years before there were any smoking regulations in Great Britain.

These don’t sound like they came down from Daddy Spears, since he’d be demanding the hotel empty the minibar in Brit’s room—and shut off the phones.

Britney Gets Unwanted Guest

When will fans learn that all that concert ticket buys you in a seat in the audience?

E! reports that an over-enthusiastic fan of Britney Spears jumped onstage at her Saturday night show at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Connecticut. 20-year-old Kyle King from Orlando, Florida, got within a couple of feet of the pop princess before being ushered off stage by backup dancers and security.

The Connecticut State Police confirmed to E! News that King was arrested for breach of peace. He was later released on $250 bail. The fan posted a YouTube video claiming he had the right to be onstage with Britney because he bought all her CDs, but the vid has been removed.

This is one reason stars have those big, ugly bodyguards.

Is Brit’s “Circus” Too Sexy?

Some parents who have taken their kids to shows on Britney Spears’ “Circus” tour think it should be rated R—or at least PG—due to the skimpy costumes and sexual content.

MTV.com spoke to some parents at the Pittsburgh show and got varying opinions. Mother of four Amy Dunn was freaked out by the “Freakshow” segment of the concert, which shows  Britney gettin’ nasty with her male dancers to songs like “Get Naked” and “Touch of My Hand,” while wearing nearly-see-through bodysuits. Dunn said, “Two of the numbers, where Britney had twirly things and tassels, weren’t very flattering and too much for the kids. It was a little R-rated for this venue.”

Mom-of-teens Leslie Mossesso said, “I think it was decent for the age we brought, but I wouldn’t go under sixth grade. It was a little risqué, but good. I’ve seen worse.”

So are performers supposed to clean up their shows so that they’re “safe” for all audiences, or should nervous parents confine their kids’ concert-going to Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers?
