Britney Spears is still busy in Europe killing crowds with her new Circus tour but she took a break this past weekend to spend some time with her boys at the good old fashioned tourist attraction, the Eiffel Tower. I have to say that in this picture, I’m not really loving Britney’s look but then again, I don’t always look in top form when I’m racing my kids around either. It is nice to see though that Brit is taking some family time away from her work and just hanging out with her kids for some good family fun. It’s recently come out that, according to Michael Jackson, this is exactly what Britney should be doing. From Contact Music,
“Michael Jackson reportedly advised Britney Spears to retire from the music industry to focus on life with her family.
Michael Jackson warned Britney Spears not to “end up” like him.
The late ‘Thriller’ star – who died of a suspected cardiac arrest on June 25 – reportedly telephoned the 27-year-old singer a few weeks before his death and told her to retire from the music industry and focus on family life.
A friend of Britney’s said: “Michael told her, ‘Don’t end up like me.’ His warning was eerie, like he was trying to tell Britney he was going to die.”
The pair had remained friends since they famously performed ‘The Way You Make Me Feel’ together at Michael’s 30th anniversary celebration concert in New York’s Madison Square Garden in 2001.
The source added to Britain’s Look magazine: “I think Michael’s warning sent shivers down Britney’s spine. He was emphatic in warning her she should leave showbusiness in order to maintain her sanity. He thought she should retire after the ‘Circus’ tour so she could focus on the things that mattered – her sons and family. Britney must have taken Michael’s words to heart as she promised him she would at least take a long break after she finished the tour.”
Hopefully, Britney will take this advice, whether Michael really gave it to her or not (although I don’t know why a source would lie about it at this point.) I’ve always thought that Britney jumped back into her comeback too quickly but she’s proven so far that she seems to be handling it just fine. Hopefully though she will take a long break after this and free herself up for some more time like this with her boys!
