Britney’s on the mend in a dance studio

Scoop: Spears might have been let out of the hospital too soon, but some close to her are giving the pop star credit for showing signs of improvement this past weekend.

Britney Spears might have been let out of the hospital too soon, according to some close to her, but they are giving Spears credit for showing signs of improvement this past weekend.

“She spent a lot of time at the dance studio and while there, she really was more focused than she’s been in a long time,” said a witness to the trip. It’s reported that Spears is working on putting together a new music video, which proves also that she isn’t ready to retire.

“Britney has talked about taking a break but she can’t do it,” said one person who worked with Spears. “She loves to perform. She doesn’t want that last tour that was such a disaster to be her last.”

Another person close to Spears said the Grammys were a motivating factor for her. “She has a hard time sitting all of this out,” said the source. “In her mind she should still be a part of it all.”

Paris Hilton’s film not so hot Ever since Paris Hilton first purred “that’s hot,” I’ve been hoping she’d find a good reason to retire the phrase. I just thought of 225 reasons: 225 is the measly number of dollars her movie, “The Hottie and The Nottie,” made on average at theaters that played it this past weekend. The total gross was $225,000, which doesn’t come near the “Fool’s Gold” take, which just over $22 million. The Matthew McConaughey-Kate Hudson flick won at the box office this weekend, as “Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins” made $17 million, according to Box Office Mojo.
