What a Long, Strange Trip: 48 Hours in the Life of Britney

by at . Comments

In the wake of Jamie Lynn Spears' pregnancy announcement, a confused and shaken Britney Spears is making every effort to turn the spotlight back on herself.

The singer filled another weekend with late-night shopping trips, run-ins with celebrity news and wild driving. Oh, and her two young children, too.

The adventure began just after midnight on Saturday morning, when she and one of her friends, her assistant, Carla, left her Beverly Hills home in Britney's Mercedes - its headlights off and trunk open - and made the first of several stops at a Rite-Aid store in Hollywood, where Spears parked in a handicapped spot.

"I have stuff I have to buy for my babies," Spears told photographers.

The troubled mother of two then headed on over to Japanese restaurant Miyagi's on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood. "Britney Spears came in here around 1:15 a.m. with a friend," the restaurant manager, Gator Lee, told People.

"We had just closed the kitchen, but we opened it back up. She had chicken teriyaki and shrimp tempura. She didn't have any alcohol to drink ... She seemed fine."

Spears ended up taking the food to go and drove to her Malibu home. Spears and Carla were back at the Beverly Hills house by 5 a.m. Yes, she's got two homes.

Britney Spears then had an angry encounter with celebrity news media.

The next night, Spears drove a white Mini Cooper - possibly Carla's - over to Tony Taverna restaurant in Malibu. After dinner, Britney made a sudden stop to take a picture of a graffiti mural in Malibu with her digital camera.

"Move out of the way so I can take a picture. I'm just like you," she yelled at the photographers. But when the cameramen wouldn't move, Spears screamed, cursed and slammed her camera on the hood of a nearby car. Then she drove off.

Minutes later, she returned.

Apparently, Spears lost the camera's memory card and was back to find it. Luckily, one of the photographers had the card and returned it. Then Britney slipped into the passenger side of a silver Mercedes belonging to a photographer and sped off, her assistant following her in the Mini Cooper.

The photographer, thought to be named Adnan, and Spears - now dressed in a tight leopard-print dress and a pink wig - reappeared in separate cars later that night at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills, where they spent several hours inside before he left without Spears. It is not known whether they are just friends.

After checking out from the Peninsula Hotel at 9 a.m. on Sunday, the late-night antics were over. Britney Spears returned to her Beverly Hills house with her assistant to await the arrival of sons Sean Preston and Jayden James, who were dropped off with at noon for their previously scheduled visit.

Britney Spears and her boys spent the afternoon inside the gated community in Beverly Hills. The singer's two sons, ages 1 and 2, were scheduled to return to their father, Kevin Federline's Tarzana, Calif., home at noon on Sunday.
