It's been a slow couple of weeks for Britney Spears news, but that's a good thing in the long run - at least for the health of the singer.
Rather than clubbing in no underwear, Britney has been kicking it at home and in the dance studio, where she taught a class of 15 children Tuesday.
Just a few years older than Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline, her two precious l'il mistakes, the young dance pupils are singing her praises.
"I like Britney," said 5-year-old Elissa Bouganim, who has taken three classes with the pop star. "Today, first we were dancing slow, and then faster and faster ... Then we did the fish-move and other fun things."
The troubled 26-year-old singer has turned into a semi-regular instructor at the Millennium Dance Complex in the past month - as she has settled into a quieter routine overseen by her dad and conservator, Jamie Spears.
"It's just amazing to watch Britney with the kids," says Elissa's mom. "Elissa won't stop dancing, that's all she wants to do. Britney Spears has really inspired her."
It's kind of how we feel about the celebrity gossip business.
Elissa has grown so fond of her new teacher, she even gave Britney Spears a gift during Tuesday's super-exciting dance class. "It was a picture of [Peter Pan's] Tinkerbell," she says. "And she gave me a hug."
The pint-size cutie would be happy if Spears taught all classes. "Britney is nice," she says. "I want to dance with Britney all the time."
While we actually fell asleep for a brief instant writing this boring story, we are happy Britney is keeping company with Elissa and not Sam Lutfi.
