We know Britney Spears loves to flip the bird.
But Friday, Britney flipped for a bird at a pet store and had to take it home. After all, the "singer" doesn't have enough responsibilities to dump on others or neglect altogether.
Yes, Britney Spears added to the family. Here she's walking out of the store with a new parakeet. With the insane one, as always, is her cousin, BFF and assistant, Alli Sims.
Then again, she did recently rid herself of a loud, bird-brained family member in Kevin Federline. Maybe the parakeet can yell "yo" a lot and lay down some ill raps.
Meanwhile, Britney Spears has reportedly put off the release of her new album, which was supposed to drop in November. Her publicist confirms to Life & Style that it's been postponed.
Britney Spears' rep (who better be careful she doesn't get the axe a la Larry Rudolph) Leslie Sloane Zelnik, tells Life & Style, "I put her on hiatus. Brit's album is pushed until '08."
Another source close to Britney Spears says that executives at her record label, Jive, are fearing that her career is over.
"I'm surprised the album wasn't pushed back to 2009, or after that," the source said. "Everything's up in the air with the album right now."
This happens sometimes if the artist can't or won't sober up.
Here's a brilliant PR idea: Market the hell out of the CD as a coaster as well, since that's where it might be best used as a party. Our put out a scratch and sniff, uncut "bonus" version that smells like cigarettes and various types of booze.
