After Hospital Exit, Britney Spears Takes On Parents

February 7, 2008 9:10 AM ET

The chaotic life of Britney Spears continues. After leaving the UCLA Medical Center ahead of schedule, Spears was spotted with paparazzo boyfriend Adnan Ghalib at the Beverly Hills Hotel. It gets more complicated: The two headed to her lawyer's office to discuss Britney's objection to her parents' role as conservators on her behalf (TMZ suggests that Britney's father will seek more enforcement of his role in court today). Meanwhile, Jamie and Lynne Spears released a statement to CNN's Anderson Cooper expressing their disappointment in their daughter's early exit from psychiatric care. With a legal wedge now driven between Spears and her parents, this can only get uglier.

Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
