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.

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
