Britney Spears, also known as the closest thing to a queen America currently has or deserves, was in town this Weekend and walked down the aisle. No, it wasn't another quickie wedding her like her 2004 Las Vegas nuptuials. Brit-Brit played brides maid to her friend and assistant Brett Miller, but like all things involving Spears there was a wee bit of drama.
So the following night Spears and her boyfriend/manager Jason Trawick traded in their room for the $15,000-a-night Frank Sinatra suite at the Fontainebleau. While there she apparently made an appearance at LIV, the hotel's mega club.
Then on Saturday she performed her brides maid duties at the St. Bernard de Clairvaux Episcopal Church and The Ancient Spanish Monastry. Rest assured, not even Britney Spears looks that great in a Brides Maid dress (we're talking about a woman who pretty much pulled off the shaved head, sweat suit and umbrella look).
Britney wasn't the only pop princess in Miami this week. Katy Perry made a surprise appearance Tuesday night at South Beach's favorite gay bar, Twist, where she posed with fans ...at least those not upset that she turned homosexuality into gimmicky lyrics for her songs "Yr So Gay" and "I Kissed a Girl."
