Britney's house budget: $29 million

Britney Spears is looking for fancy new digs.

The singer — who dumped hubby Kevin Federline — is selling the house they shared in Malibu for $13.5 million, and the word is, she’s looking to buy one in Florida for more than twice that amount.

The “Oops, I Did It Again” crooner is shopping for houses in the Miami area costing up to $29 million, according to Star.

And it looks like she’s expecting a big payday to help foot that bill. Spears is rumored to be mulling a big Las Vegas gig, and the Star is also reporting that she’s negotiated a 20-week, $15 million exclusive performance contract with the Palms Hotel and Casino.

“Makes sense,” a source tells The Scoop.  “The folks who own the Palms are longtime fans of Britney.”

Techno musician Moby is taking on Bill O’Reilly for dissing technophiles. The Fox newsman recently blasted iPod owners, saying, “I don’t own an iPod.
