The Last Britney Spears Post For At Least A Week

While Britney Spears is being sucked up into a whirlwind of scandal, her new single "Gimme More" is lined up for an October 2 iTunes release.

Here's what's currently on the troubled singer's tabloid grocery list:

* Dealing with an ex-bodyguard who claims she used drugs and walked around her kids in the buff.

* Getting dumped by her custody-battle lawyer, as well as her manager at The Firm.

* Getting banned from L.A.'s Chateau Marmont for allegedly "smearing food all over her face."

* The FBI investigation into a hit contracted on her ex-husband, Kevin Federline. (This is a bad thing.)

Meanwhile, "Gimme More" is slated to be released in the U.K. the same week in November as Kylie Minogue's comeback single, "2 Hearts."

The two pop vixens previously faced off there in March 2004, when "Toxic" hit #1 and trumped Minogue's "Red Blooded Woman," which debuted at #5.

New Towleroad column up now.

    i'm not happy with the towleroad popups :P

    I think we know who will triumph in this chart battle. (hint: not britney - if she does i will eat my hat).

    Last time around it was single #2 from both albums, this time it's the debuts that will clash - I think it's a given that Kylie will win this battle.

    "Gimme More" isn't bad, but it's far from "Toxic". Let's hope "2 Hearts" has a bit more character than the Kish Mauve version, it certainly needs something.

    Paul and Brady, yeah, I'm hoping it's Kylie as well. But totally agree that there'd better be a major injection of hotness into the Kish Mauve version.... I'm guessing it'll be a total reworking, due to the slight title change from "Two" to "2"....
