WEST HOLLYWOOD - Britney Spears has really been feeling down lately since her career has sort of stalled due to the mini-scandal involving lyrics she allegedly borrowed from John Phillip Sousa the king of the marching bands.
According to Bedroom Pillow Talk Spears says that she did not do it on purpose and added that she has never in her life heard any songs by John Phillip Souza.
Britney wrote a song with the following line: "And as we marched hand in hand on the beach he suddenly whispered that he wanted for his lips to touch my lips."
And in the 1909 song by John Phillip Sousa he wrote the line: "And as we marched hand in hand on the beach she suddenly whispered that she wanted for her lips to touch my lips."
As one can see both lyrics are somewhat similar. The John Phillip Sousa lyrics are from his military marching song entitled, "The March of The Toy Soldiers From Saskatchewan."
The title of Britney Spears song is "The Ballad of The Star Crossed Lovers From Saskatoon."
The estate of John Phillip Sousa has reportedly filed a $7.3 million lyrical lawsuit.
Bedroom Pillow Talk is reporting that a very depressed Britney Spears has turned to her BFF Mel Gibson for comfort and joy, comfort and joy (sic).
Spears and Gibson have been very close friends for many years. She was recently there for him when he was going through the 'Internet Shouting Incidents' with his ex-future wife Oksana Grigorieva.
And Gibson was there for Britney when she was going through her 'Australian Lip Syncing Scandal.'
So the two are no strangers to the art of 'Shoulder Providing.'
BPT did reveal that Spears confided to Gibson in strictest confidence that she really and truly misses the hell (her word) out of lip syncing.
When Mel heard her say that he reportedly made a face and then covered up his ears and said, "I did not hear that la la la la la la la."
