Britney Spears may have a permanent conservatorship in place, but her manager, Larry Rudolph, told Access Hollywood’sBilly Bush for “The Billy Bush Show” that she is the ringleader of the Brit circus.
Following a stunning performance on “Good Morning America” Tuesday and a star-studded lavish birthday bash later that night, not to mention a record release, there is no doubt that Britney is back – she even has “the eye of the tiger back,” according to her manager.
But is the Brit media frenzy too much too soon for a pop star who was hospitalized just 11 months ago? Not according to Larry.
“This has been a gradual process. It just didn’t happen over night,” Larry told Billy. “She’s in a great place. She is very happy with what she is doing. She’s being incredibly productive. She’s looking good and she’s feeling good.”
Despite her permanent conservatorship that placed dad Jamie Spears in control of Britney’s legal and financial decisions, Larry squashed any notion that people other than Britney are making her decisions.
“Nothing is happening that’s not at her request or her comfort level. She’s doing what she loves to do, and it’s making her very happy,” Larry continued. “She’s in full control, nobody is telling her what to do. If at any moment she said, ‘I don’t want to do this.’ That’s what would happen.”
But don’t expect the current Brit frenzy to fizzle anytime soon. Larry told Billy that Britney is planning to rehearse every day for two months straight in order to prepare for her tour, “The Circus starring Britney Spears” 2009, that kicks off in New Orleans on March 3, 2009.
“We are going to bring the circus to town,” Larry added. “It is [going to be] just amazing… this is going to be the best Britney show ever, by far. It’s going to be a don’t miss show.”
