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.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
