Britney Spears Takes Time Off From 'Circus' To Visit Zoo

Britney Spears is currently touring for Circus, but today in London she took time out to visit the zoo. Fresh off a string of eight successful shows at London's O2 Arena, Spears used her off day to take sons Sean Preston and Jayden James to the London Zoo. With a team of security in tow, the trio strolled through the grounds, saw some animals and took a ride on the zoo's carousel.

She'll then moves on to dates in Ireland, France, Belgium, Russia and Germany before making a second run through the U.S. and hitting Australia for the first time in her career. It's been a week full of recognition for Spears, as she won a Logo Award and was nominated for three Teen Choice Awards.
