Looks like Britney Spears has already rebounded.
The detoxed “Toxic” star is dating musician Howie Day, according to the new issue of Life & Style.
Spears met Day while the two were at rehabbing at Promises in Malibu “and fell hard for him” reports the mag, which claims that she’s going to bring him as her date when she attends her cousin Erin’s wedding on June 2.
“Britney just lights up and seems back to her old self when she talks to Howie or tells people about him,” an “insider” tells the mag. “She thinks he’s very talented — and says he’s the best kisser ever!”

But not everyone is thrilled about the romance. Spears’ mother, Lynne, is concerned about Day’s past: he’s been arrested twice and was sent to rehab as part of his probation.
“Lynne wants Britney to be with someone outside the music industry,” says the Spears family insider. “Howie is always on the road and exposed to influences that are discouraged in rehab.”
Hilary dating Paris' ex?
Has Hilary Duff scooped up Paris Hilton’s leftovers?
Just weeks after the partying heiress split from shipping heir Stavros Niarchos, he was spotted getting cozy with Duff at Les Deus in Los Angeles, reports In Touch Weekly.
Early in the evening, Niarchos was on his best behavior — coincidentally, perhaps, Hilton was also at the nightclub. But as soon as Hilton left, reports the mag, the partying playboy made a beeline for Duff and spend much of the evening getting close to her.
“They traded numbers — and a kiss — before they left,” a partygoer told the mag.
Hilton isn’t likely to turn into a wallflower, though. She’s been spotted around town with “Desperate Housewives” hottie Josh Henderson.
Notes from all over
John Travolta says that after his much-publicized dance with Princess Diana, everyone wanted to dance with him. Even James Bond. “I was heading home [from a party] when Sean [Connery] said, ‘And where do you think you’re going?’ I said, ‘Oh, I’m leaving now.’ And he said, ‘Not until you’ve had a dance with me!” Travolta said in London while promoting “Wild Hogs.” “So Sean and I took to the floor and did a bit of a waltz and a dance — a bit like the scene I have with William H. Macy in this new film.” . . . Salma Hayek says that she was so hard on her own looks that for a long time she considered herself “deformed.” ... Tobey Maguire has been a vegetarian for 14 years and says he’s almost — but not quite — a vegan. “I do eat honey, and a piece of milk chocolate here and there,” the “Spider-Man” star tells Parade. “It’s never really been that hard for me. I’ve never had any desire to eat meat. In fact, when I was a kid I would have a really difficult time eating meat at all. It had to be the perfect bite, with no fat or gristle or bone or anything like that.”
