Celebrity blogger [artist id="3137265"]Perez Hilton[/artist] is the newest member of [artist id="501686"]Britney Spears[/artist]' traveling circus this spring. When the pop star hits the road next month for her Circus tour not only will she be [news id="1600903"]joined by the Pussycat Dolls[/news], but she'll also have Perez Hilton there for every one of her dates — sort of ...
The blogger will not actually be hitting the road with the singer. He was asked by the tour's director/ choreographer, Jamie King, to tape a video that will air at the beginning of each stop on the tour.
"King told us that he had a dream about Perez and wanted us to be a part of the Circus," Hilton blogged on his site. "His dream is the video we shot last weekend, which is the opening video for the entire show. Britney was down with the idea and we, of course, said yes! We are thrilled to be a part of it!"
In a photo on Britney Spears' official Web site, fans get a taste of what they can expect from Hilton. For his part, Hilton will be dressed as something he describes as "The Ringleader/ Queen Elizabeth I" for the video, a role he said is "super rad."
"We've seen a bit of the rehearsals, and the best way we can describe it is sensory overload and amazing," Hilton said on his site. "The show is not only 'in the round,' but there are three circus rings with action going on in all of them — dancers, acrobats, aerialists and more. It's major! We can't wait to see how it all comes together!"
Speaking of her rehearsals, apparently the pop star has been sharing rehearsal space with [artist id="1001"]Nine Inch Nails[/artist], according to Britney's Web site. "I can hear the thumping low end of Britney Spears," a comment from NIN's Trent Reznor says on the site. "It's been a treat having them here the whole time we've been here."
Spears' manager, Adam Leber, said that Britney and NIN have been getting along "famously," adding, "Maybe we should ask Trent Reznor to remix Circus?"
