WORLD ENDS! Britney released from hospital

You'd think it was the World's end, the Paps didn't catch the release of britney but apparently she was later spotted being driven around by an unidentified male and the chase resumed, even with a helicopter!

Dang, Skippy, I'm sure glad she's all better and can go back to her regular, looney acts and having the paps chasing her tail everywhere.
P.S. I'm glad the LA laws about controlling the paps is working so well.

Spears Quietly Released From LA Hospital

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Britney Spears was quietly released from a hospital Wednesday and slipped away unnoticed, only to be spotted hours later driving through Los Angeles with paparazzi and a television helicopter in tow.

Her incognito getaway from UCLA Medical Center - a stark contrast to the extensive police escort that brought her in - required no law enforcement presence, said Capt. Sharyn Buck, commander of the North Hollywood police station that covers Spears' home area.

"There was no media, no paparazzi, and no need for public safety protection," Buck said.

It didn't take long for the cameras to find her.

By late afternoon, Spears had left home in a black Mercedes-Benz and drove for a while, then exchanged seats with an unidentfied man, the Web site reported as it streamed KTTV Fox 11 news helicopter video from overhead.

Paparazzi vehicles zoomed around the car, which photographers swarmed at every stop. Spears' car was observing traffic laws, the helicopter pilot reported.

At one point the Mercedes pulled into the Beverly Hills Hotel entrance. Beverly Hills police Sgt. Mark Miner said a "keep the peace" detail was sent to the hotel, a common practice when paparazzi are causing a nuisance.

The troubled singer was hospitalized Jan. 31 and held for a 72-hour evaluation that was originally set to expire Sunday. Her stay was then extended for two weeks, a person close to the pop star told The Associated Press, which may explain why she was able to avoid attention on her way out.
