BEIJING, Sept. 3 (Xinhuanet) -- Britney Spears, whose new single "Gimme More" has drawn mixed reviews, strutted down a red carpet in a white mini dress shortly after midnight Friday as she helped kickoff the grand opening of the LAX nightclub at the Luxor Hotel and Casino in
Although she didn't pause for any interviews,
she gave photographers and cameramen all they could handle as she smiled
for pictures before disappearing into the club where celebrity pals Nicky
Hilton, Wilmer Valderrama, Dave Navarro and Brody Jenner were waiting..
Spears reportedly told a packed house, "How you guys
feeling? Let's have a good night" after making her way to the DJ booth where DJ
AM was stationed.
Spears then went to the VIP area where she reportedly
hung out with illusionist Criss Angel. Angel has been frequently seen with
Spears during the past few weeks and is reportedly assisting the pop star with
her upcoming act at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sept. 9.
According to People magazine, the pair eventually
made their way to the dance floor, where at one point Spears took Angel's
lollipop out of his mouth and popped it into hers.
The two then spent some time at the Noir Bar next
door before returning to LAX a short time later.
When "Access Hollywood" caught up with Angel on the
red carpet before Spears' arrival, the magician played coy when asked about
rumors the two were collaborating on her VMA performance, saying a good
illusionist can't reveal his secrets.
On Friday, Spearsí»record label confirmed her new
album would be released on Nov. 13.
