It seems like only last week that Britney Spears was better known for crazy antics and topless photos than she was for her hit records and concerts.
Oh, wait, there actually were pics of Britney Spears topless released last week. But they were older shots. And you know what we're saying here.
Nowadays, the former train wreck's signature sass is back, as is her killer body, and her album Circus a bona fide hit that spawned a fantastic tour.
Sources say Britney Spears radiates a glow – and for good reason: The pop star has found Prince Charming in longtime pal and agent Jason Trawick.
"He's fiercely protective of her," a colleague says of 37-year-old Jason, a William Morris agent, who has been the singer's "rock of reliability."
Some claim Jason is merely protecting his investment ("Britney's dad pays him a lot of money"), his colleagues insists their love is the real deal:
"He was there when everyone written off Britney, reconstructing her comeback, reminding her that fans still loved her and want her to be happy."
