Britney Plans Return to Records After Italy Break

Britney Spears, the U.S. pop idol who is taking a six-month sabbatical at the tender age of 20, said on Tuesday she planned to return to the recording studio after a break hosted by Italian designer Donatella Versace.

“I think I may just go to Los Angeles and record a little bit. But other than that I just plan to hang out,” Spears told Reuters before taking her seat in the front row of Versace’s spring/summer 2003 fashion show.

“It’s like a dream come true being here right now,” said Spears, who in August decided to take six months off after a giddy four years of fame.

She first hit the charts in 1998 with “Baby one more time,” then shot to success with three top-selling albums, several magazine covers and an advertising deal all by the age of 20.

Versace said her new outfits were inspired by Spears’ all-singing, all-dancing, all-acting success, but that the girl who first shot to fame in school uniforms needed a break.

“She needs a vacation. She’s worked so so hard for so many years. She’s a young girl and she’s a little tired,” said Versace, lounging on a black sofa next to the singing sensation.

Earlier Spears, who famously vowed to remain a virgin until her wedding night and has been the center of has-she-hasn’t-she speculation ever since, posed for photographers in a sequined dress translucent enough to show every curve of her bottom.

“My clothes are very young and rock and roll – Britney things,” Versace said, dressed head-to-toe in black.

“I’m incredibly flattered,” the blonde singer gushed in reply. “You are so sweet! You let me into her home and you’re so nice!”
