Britney Spears' fiancé, Jason Trawick, has petitioned a court to become the singer's co-conservator, E! News reports. Jamie Spears, the pop star's father, has held legal control over his daughter and her multimillion dollar fortune since February of 2008, not long after the singer went through a protracted public breakdown.

Trawick was Spears' manager from 2008 until earlier this year, when he stepped down from the position to focus on their romantic relationship and his plans to open an arts and entertainment division for Famos LLC, a company whose partners include Mick Jagger and Dave Stewart. The couple got engaged in December, on the night of Trawick's 40th birthday.

If Trawick is granted a co-conservatorship, he will only have shared legal power over Spears' general well-being – including decisions regarding food, clothing and medical care – but will not control her finances or her career.

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."
