Paging Dr. Luke!

No not Luke Perry. We’re talking about “Dr. Luke” Gottwald, the hot-shot record producer behind some of the biggest pop hits of the last few years. That’s who our girl Britney Spears was visiting the other day, according to Us Weekly.

Spears’ incompetent manager, Larry Rudolph, says she’s been recording some tracks for her upcoming album (due out this fall) with the Doc the rest of this week at the Palms Casino Resort’s private recording studio.

Dr. Luke is the man behind Kelly Clarkson‘s hit songs “Since U Been Gone” and “Behind These Hazel Eyes,” among other hits. He’s also written and produced for Avril Lavigne, Pink and the Backstreet Boys.

Apparently, he’s the best. Says a pal of Brit’s involved with the CD:

“She’s working with the best.”

We’re told, shockingly, that Britney is traveling with her two boys, Jayden James and Sean Preston, so hopefully that’s not too big a distraction.

In other news, Britney was apparently worried that a thin shirt might allow a pack of paparazzi to see a little more than she’d prefer, and made sure to keep her breasts covered up as she emerged from a gas station bathroom yesterday during a road trip with new boyfriend (of practically an entire month) Isaac Cohen.

Allow us to remind you, Britney, that:

  • You have the option of not wearing a see-through shirt.
  • You went through a phase in which you wore no pants and provided us with one great crotch shot after another, so there’s really no point in being modest now.
