Spotted: Britney Spears Takes In The Australian Sun

Every day a multitude of stars wanders through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.

While most of North America begins to settle into the crisp, cold winter months, Britney Spears is enjoying the birth of the Australian summer. She has taken her Circus tour down under for a series of shows, marking the first time that Spears has performed live in Australia. Though the shows have been wildly entertaining, things haven't gone entirely to plan. According to reports, fans walked out on the first few shows while complaining that the performance was "boring" and "stiff." That news reportedly upset Spears, whose tour promoter said, "I'm embarrassed, with such a big international entourage here with Britney, to be part of the Australian media when I see that kind of totally inaccurate reporting" and claimed the stories about fans exiting were total fabrications. There has also been a bit of controversy over Spears' lip-synching during the shows — in fact, the Fair Trade Minister of New South Wales suggested that tickets should come with a disclaimer letting buyers know which parts of the concert were pre-recorded. Despite all the controversy, Spears seemed to be in good spirits on her way out of her hotel in Perth.

Elsewhere, Kristen Stewart teamed up with Sugar Ray Leonard to fight juvenile diabetes in Los Angeles and a whole host of stars — including Anthony Kiedis and Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers — hung out at the Staples Center for the Lakers game on Sunday.
