Britney Weds, Annuls Marriage

Singer hitches and ditches in Vegas

January 5, 2004 12:00 AM ET

Britney Spears' label said she "took a joke too far" on Saturday morning when she married a childhood friend in a quickie ceremony in Las Vegas, only to file for an annulment a few hours later.

Spears, 22, was dressed in jeans and a baseball cap at the Little White Wedding Chapel on Vegas' famous Strip, where she wed Louisiana native Jason Allen Alexander, also 22. The bride was escorted down the aisle by the limousine driver, who drove her and Alexander from a bar at the Palms Casino and Hotel to the chapel.

The ceremony was held at 5:30 a.m., and the paperwork for the annulment was filed later that day. The annulment will be made official when the courts open this morning.

The marriage was the first for both.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
