Britney Spears Hospitalized Again on Doctor's Orders

January 31, 2008 9:51 AM ET

Four weeks after a standoff with police, Britney Spears is back in the hospital after having been deemed a danger to herself and those around her, Us reports. Spears was taken to UCLA Medical Center late last night and placed on "mental evaluation hold." Us also reports that the hospital trip was in fact a "carefully orchestrated intervention" and was not the result of a suicide attempt or any other dangerous act on Britney's part. A source also says that Spears hasn't slept since Saturday. Because this trip was planned, it is likely that Spears will remain under hospital care longer than her stay from a month ago. This is merely the latest in a series of roadblocks for the singer, whose erratic behavior has already cost her custody of her two sons.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
