Brits gives up alcohol

LONDON: Pop star Britney Spears has given up her big vice — alcohol — in a desperate bid to regain her former glory ahead of a world tour.

“Britney realised that things had to change in her lifestyle if she was ever going to have a chance to claw back her crown. She has been working out for months now to keep in shape, you’ll often see her going to the gym,” quoted a source as saying.

The source added, “Her appearance at this year’s MTV video awards really gave her a boost and the confidence to continue with her plan of getting her life back on track. And that’s why she has decided to give up drinking alcohol, because not only does it cause weight gain but she wants to be on the ball.”
