Britney To Get "Glamour"ous!
Britney is reportedly doing a photoshoot in New York City sometime this week! According to BritneySpears.org, Britney will be shooting with the amazing photographer David LaChapelle for Glamour Magazine. LaChapelle, who shot Britney for her 1999 Rolling Stone debut as well as her 2004 Onyx Hotel Tour Showtime promotionals, has worked with stars such as Christina Aguilera, Pamela Anderson, Madonna... you name it!
Britney will be featured on Glamour's cover, with a 3 full page picture-spread and an accompanying article. "There will be 6 outfits," says a source. "One of the concepts for a picture for the spread is Britney in a black pinstriped suit and hat, but half of her body has the suit torn off into the Toxic bodysuit. The cover is said to be simple and aqua."
Glamour Magazine plans to throw a launch party on the same day "Womanizer" goes on sale. The concept is a look back at her career; this fall marks the 10 year anniverary of "Baby One More Time".
NEW BRITNEY'S ON A MISSHION
A New York middle school got a surprise visitor: Britney Spears.
The pop star dropped by John Philip Sousa M. S. 142 in The Bronx on Wednesday to present a $10,000 check to be used as an endowment for the school's year-old music program.
As she entered the school (which was not in session due to the Jewish holiday), she was treated to a performance by the Sousatones, the school's eight-piece band, led by director Sal Mazzola.
"When you're ready to take us on the road for an opening act, we're ready," he told Spears.
Spears, who plans to tour in 2009, replied: "You'll be the first people I call."
Mazzola told the students in advance they would be playing for a "high-profile" guest, but they only learned it would be Spears earlier that morning. (Some kids guessed it would be P. Diddy or Barack Obama.)
Spears was also serenaded by a chorus of seven girls, including soloist Rachel Lewis, 14, who sang "I Am Woman."
The donation came from Elizabeth Arden, which is behind Spears's fragrances, Believe, Fantasy and Curious.
"I really enjoyed the time I spent at the John Philip Souza Middle Schoo," Spears tells PEOPLE. "I've been working with the people at Elizabeth Arden for the last five years, and I know how passionate everyone is about the school. I loved hearing the school orchestra and the children sang so beautifully. The fact that Elizabeth Arden made such a large donation for the school music studio in my name was so generous."
