Just when I thought Ms. Spears had gotten her act together, a source tells the New York Post that Britney's recent rash of late-night partying while glued to the side of brand-new BFF Paris Hilton is already taking its toll on the legit songstress' career resuscitation. "[Britney has] been missing recording sessions because she was been out all night," says the snitch. "The [record] label is very worried."

In her defense, K-Fed's soon-to-be ex has reportedly been telling friends, "I gave birth for two and a half years, and now I want to party" - which, I have to say, could make for a catchy title for her next single.
