What's Up With The Meds Britney?

Britney Spears is preparing to return to the stage as the opening act at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, but she may not be in the best of health. The singer stepped out clutching a mysterious bottle of pills during a shopping trip in Beverly Hills. Britney who was also seen carrying not one but two identical Versace hand bags, looked to be in high spirits during her outing, smiling as stopped of for a quick solarium visit. Brit is set to perform Gimme More - the first single from her upcoming album - at Sunday's event in Las Vegas. MTV said in a statement: "After weeks of mind-blowing media speculation, MTV confirms today that Britney Spears will be opening the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards." The performance is billed as her "long awaited comeback." VMA executive producer Jesse Ignjatovic added: "I wanted to start the show in a very big and dramatic way, and she's the one to do that." "She'll captivate everyone, and set the tone for rest of the night."

Britney first performed at the VMAs in 2001, where she sang I'm A Slave 4 U with a 7-foot albino python around her neck. Her ultra toned look appears to be a thing of the past however – earlier this week flashed her ample bottom one more time during a junk food binge following another night out. Brit seems to have swapped her heavy partying lifestyle for a night of snacking as she stopped at an off-licence, and later fast-food chain Taco Bell for something to eat. But the threat of her expanding waistline doesn't seem to have affected the star's seemingly unhealthy appetite for her favourite take-away foods. And unfortunately Britney's unabashed love of junk food looks as if it's taken its toll on the star's body, as she appeared puffy-faced and was pictured in a dress that failed miserably to cover her ample bottom. Britney's new look is in stark contrast to the fitter, healthier look she showcased earlier this year as she embarked on her comeback following her split from ex-husband Kevin Federline. Her daily dance workouts appear to have dwindled as she spends her nights out clubbing with friends.
