Now that Britney Spears is out of rehab, lots of people are rooting for her.

That includes The Hollywood Gossip staff.

Britney Spears Side View

And her producer, Sean Garrett.

"I'm working with Britney Spears," Garrett told People on Saturday at the Kids' Choice Awards, where Jamie Lynn Spears made an appearance.

"It's really coming together right now. I know that [Britney Spears] will do exceptionally well now that she's out of rehab."

Right, we're sure of this as well, seeing that she's been clean for, oh, almost two full weeks! After a complete mental breakdown and addiction to alcohol and drugs. She's definitely in the clear.

Garrett, who has produced tracks for Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez and Mary J. Blige, among others, had been working with Spears on five songs for her upcoming album before she checked into rehab at Malibu's Promises center February 20.

The sound on the new disc, he says, "is like 'Toxic' times 10. It's going to be a lot of fun and it's really exciting. We did a lot of great work before her break."

"Break" is a nice way of putting it, dude. You win points for political correctness.

Garrett, who is hopefully a better colleague for Brit than Larry Rudolph, also said he has no doubt Spears will emerge from her recent experience stronger than ever.

"Britney is a superstar," he said of Cue Ball.

"She knows how to handle herself, but it's tough sometimes. The pressure sometimes gets to you, but I think she has done such a great job keeping her composure under the circumstances."

Jayden James and Sean Preston sure hope that continues.

These aren't the cutest Britney Spears photos of all time, and we're a bit sad that our girl didn't pick a better jersey to wear than that of Kobe Bryant.

But nevertheless, it's good to see Britney Spears out and about and having a good time that doesn't involve going bald or a good crotch shot... though it's unclear if she's wearing any pants in these pics. See below. 

Ridin' Dirty

The mother of Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline attended the Lakers game April 1. Luckily, this time she wasn't booed (she and lil' sis Jamie Lynn Spears were jeered during their last visit to Staples Center when Britney was broadcast on the scoreboard).

No matter what Avril Lavigne says, we're still 100 percent on Team Britney. Way to get on with your life and not let the haters get you down, babe.

We know you're not allowed to date for awhile after you get out of rehab, Brit, but can you get us the phone number of that girl behind you in the yellow Kobe jersey? Damn! She's almost as cute as Rachel Bilson.

Avril Lavigne was cruelly mistreated as a kid.

For being forced by her mom to go see a Britney Spears concert.

Dominatrix Show

The punky Canadian pop star, who may or may not have had plastic surgery, tells Jane magazine that she had to swallow (heh, heh) a whole live concert's worth of the older, more successful and more troubled pop tart - who's only three years Lavigne's senior.

"My mom made me go to a Britney Spears concert when I was young. I was like, ‘No I don't want to.' She was like, ‘If you're going to be a performer, you need to see other people." 

An interesting theory. One wonders if Bobby Brown's parents - in an attempt to introduce him to other abusive derelicts of society - forced him to go watch Ike Turner perform in concert or O.J. Simpson play football.

Lavigne further disses Britney Spears, saying that no one would've objected to her spitting at a paparazzo's camera, as was well documented last year, if Spears hadn't been, like, wearing no pants that week.

Sure thing, Avril. You and Deryck Whibley can diss Britney and try to justify your own despicable actions all you want, but that won't change the indisputable fact that you're cut-rate, hack, wannabe rockers.

You're one step above Sanjaya Malakar, peeps - and he's gaining fast. And it's like that. What.

LIME recently completed a survey regarding celebrities and a wide range of health issues. Some of the results were expected. For example ...

Britney Spears is considered most in need of a more balanced lifestyle. The newly shaven celeb topped the unhealthy list with a whopping 81 percent saying of respondents saying she needs to "live the change."

A Nude Britney Spears

In the eyes of Americans, Lindsay Lohan (14%) has somehow made great progress in living healthier, while a few others believe that Eminem (4%) and Mischa Barton (1%) need to start making some changes.

Meanwhile, Oprah Winfrey is the "Queen of Healthy Living," as she tops the list (at 47%) on the question of which celebritiess have most helped Americans re-evaluate their own views on the importance of living a healthier and more balanced lifestyle. Lance Armstrong comes in at a healthy second with 37%, while Ozzy Osbourne (8%) and Tyra Banks (8%) are tied at the bottom of the list.

Oprah's pal Bono is number-one when it comes to raising awareness for a cause (AIDS). He brought in nearly half the votes (48%) on who has made the greatest positive impact on raising social-consciousness about their charity. Angelina Jolie came was second (25%) with her work with the UNHCR, overshadowing the efforts almost two-fold of Ben & Jerry (16%) for Saving the Planet, and Harry Connick, Jr (11%) for Hurricane Katrina relief.

In more random results; 44% of respondants chose Cameron Diaz as the ideal yoga partner, more than double the folks who would want to partner with Jada Pinkett Smith (22%), L.L. Cool J (18%), and Mark Wahlberg (17%).

Finally, Americans want to spend a day doing green things such as recycling most with Salma Hayek (37%) and Brad Pitt (30%), while Sting (19%) and Daryl Hannah (13%) would have less fans sifting through the dumpsters with them on recycling-with-the-rich-and-famous day.

Britney Spears and Kevin Federline reached a divorce settlement Thursday, T.H. Gossip has learned.

"The parties signed a global settlement on all issues of their marriage and the custody of the children," Michael Sands, a spokesman for Federline's attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, tells People.

Britney O-Face

The deal was worked out in five-hour meeting in the Los Angeles high-rise offices of Spears' attorney, Laura Wasser. At the bargaining table were Spears, Wasser, Kaplan and FedEx.

Details of the agreement haven't been released, but a source close to the couple tells Us Weekly that reports of a $1 million settlement and a "50/50" custody agreement are "inaccurate."

On the afternoon of March 29, Britney Spears left her Beverly Hills home in a black Escalade with her bodyguard and arrived at Wasser's Century City office.

Kevin Federline arrived in a white Chevy Yukon 20 minutes later with two bodyguards and parked in in the underground garage in the same building.

At one point during the meeting, K-Fed went outside to smoke a cigarette, yo, and was joined by Britney.

"They had a 15-minute conversation," Sands said.

Wonder if it involved some of the stuff Isaac Cohen said about her. Regardless, the pact comes just days after Spears left rehab on March 20, after just under a month in detox.

Spears and Federline got married in September 2004 in a surprise ceremony and soon settled into a Malibu mansion. The couple had two sons, Sean Preston in September 2005 and Jayden James in September 2006. For a time, all was well. 

But Spears filed for divorce on November 7, 2006, irreconcilable differences being cited as the primary reason. In a temporary agreement, Spears had custody of the boys with three days of visitation for Federline.

The singer began months of hard partying in New York, Miami, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, hooking up for awhile with Paris Hilton and deciding panties were just too constricting.

She initially defended her partying as long-overdue fun, but by January, her manager, Larry Rudolph, acknowledged she was having a rough time.

After a wild weekend in which she shaved her head, Britney Spears entered rehab at Promises, where she stayed for about four weeks. K-Fed, who took care of Sean and Jayden during her treatment, declined to return custody to Brit until he was satisfied with her rehab.

After being treated for molar pain last week, Britney Spears went to the dentist again at Century City Hospital, her manager has confirmed.

Larry Rudolph, who is doing a terrific job managing Britney's career in the last year or so, said that last Sunday, Spears made an emergency visit to see the dentist for the very same tooth that's bothering her now!

A Hot Mess

Britney Spears commented that she thought she had a chipped tooth. Our guess is that the first meeting was an examination, and she got the actual dental work done this time. We're really sorry this is news, it's a slow morning. 

The Gossip can't help but speculate that Spears doesn't really have any toothaches, and is merely looking for some creative ways to get her grubby little hands on otherwise unavailable, hard core prescription pain killers.

Come on. Is that so far fetched? People close to her, such as Jason Filyaw, will tell you she has an addictive personality. And that he loves her.

The girl was just released from rehab last week. She's sure been in great spirits since. Let's hope (for cute little Jayden James' sake) it stays that way.

We're also hoping Britney and Justin write a duet about this experience. That thing would fly off the shelves about as fast as the Dustin Diamond sex tape.

Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears are not getting back together!

Well, romantically, at least. That's been his stance from the get-go. But the Bosh reports that the two are set to record a duet.

JT is confident the record can help Britney Spears rebuild her faltering pop career and get her back on track.

"Britney was extremely touched that Justin had been in contact. Going into the studio is Justin's way of helping her get better," a source says.

The pair are planning to visit a L.A. recording studio with Timbaland to re-record the Motown classic "You're All I Need to Get By" - originally a hit for Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell in 1968.

Earlier this month, Timbaland approached Justin, who first met Spears while starring on "The Mickey Mouse Club" and dated her for four years, to help propel Britney back to the top of the charts.

"I feel her pain, it really bothers me," Timbaland said. "I asked Justin, 'How would you feel about me working with Britney? Would you do it with me?' He said he would - if she's serious."

Britney checked out of rehab last week. Shortly before she was admitted, she shocked the public with bizarre behavior such as shaving her head.

The sober bald beauty stepped out in public for the first time with two of her girlfriends, Spears took a one-hour dance class at Millennium Dance Complex in North Hollywood on Friday, March 23.

Later that evening, a blue-eyed Spears and three girlfriends met up for a sushi dinner at trendy Japanese fusion joint SHU-Sushi House Unico. Too bad a newly-single Timberlake missed out!

Hopefully, this is a sign of a healthy Britney getting her life back on track. Surely Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline will appreciate it.

A newly sober Britney Spears showed up to her dance class on Friday in good spirits... and sporting blue-tinted contacts instead of her regular brown eyes. At least she's still a wigger. Anyway, check out the photo comparison below...

Center Stage

We're not sure how we feel about the blue eyes... though we do prefer her new look as a whole over some of her old ones. At least she's not knocked up or bald, right?

Right. Also, TMZ reports that Britney Spears lost more than her baby browns in rehab. The pop princess dropped 10 pounds during her stay at Promises, and got her bad self buff - and buffed, thanks to spa treatments.

The rehab clinic allowed Cue Ball to be treated to several spa treatments that included skin cleansing, helping release toxins from her system.

We've been told that Britney's made a real and significant turnaround since she checked in to the Malibu rehab facility. Whether or not Jason Filyaw or Kevin Federline are responsible for that, we can't say.

But we're glad to see our girl on the mend.

Making her first public appearance since rehab, Britney Spears took a dance class and enjoyed a sushi dinner with her girlfriends.

Spears took a one-hour hip-hop class at the Millennium Dance Complex in North Hollywood - this after lying low since checking out of rehab at Malibu's Promises treatment facility on Tuesday.

Wearing nude fishnet stockings with dance boots, black hot pants, a black shirt and a baseball cap over a wig, Spears rolled in with her bitch assistant and bodyguards to take an advanced-level hip-hop class with instructor Darrien Henning.

"The minute she walked in, she basically lit up the room," Henning said. "I had no idea she was coming, so I was shocked."

Surprisingly, Jason Filyaw did not accompany her.

Spears, whom Henning described as looking "fantastic," quietly took a spot in the back of the about 30-person class at the studio's "Dome."

"She did the choreography really well," Henning said, adding, "In fact, she came in and nailed it."

Just like Isaac Cohen did a few months back. Eh?

And the pop star's presence in class seemed to serve as an inspiration: "All my students tried harder to get on their game," Henning said.

Hopefully her stretch of going clubbing commando late last year inspire a whole host of celebs to get on their game in that regard, as well.

Returning to the studio is a homecoming of sorts for Spears, says Millennium Dance Complex owner Robert Baker, who counts Spears as one of his star clients.

"She also comes in to scope talent," he said. "More than once she's hired our teachers to choreograph for her."

We wonder if Brian Friedman is employed there.

Spears then headed to Bel Air fusion Japanese eatery SHU Sushi House Unico to meet up with three girlfriends at around 10 p.m. The four women dined at a table near a window at the front of the restaurant.

Upon leaving, Spears smiled at waiting photographers and gave a friendly wave before heading home alone at about 11:30 p.m.

On Sunday, Spears made another outing - this one presumably not as much fun. She paid a visit to a hospital to see a dentist, her rep says.

But it's nothing serious, says the rep: "At worst, it's a toothache."

At least it's a real problem, unlike made-up nonsense like hypoglycemia.

Yeah, yeah. We know. She's still beautiful on the inside. Always. That's what we want little Sean Preston and Jayden James to know as they grow up in this cruel world.

But come on. Do you prefer the Cue Ball of 2007 to these amazing Britney Spears photos of yesteryear? Yeah. Didn't think so. As much as troubled chicks in detox really turn us on, we long for the good ol' days...

Egyptian Goddess

We still love our girl. That won't change. But you can't deny that she's fallen off the iconic pedestal somewhat. A look at these Britney pics will tell you that.

Long before all the ex-husbands (Jason Alexander, K-Fed), one-night stands (J.R. Rotem) all-night sex romps (Isaac Cohen), sex tape rumors, crotch shots, hard core drug binges, uncontrollable rage, manic depression, possible insanity and head shaving, there was the incomparable goddess that was Britney Spears.

We just miss it, okay?
