Britney’s Birthday Will Definitely Be a `Circus’ Act

Pop tart Britney Spears will celebrate her 27th birthday this year - not with another stint in rehab, but with her sixth studio album, "Circus."

The Dec. 2 release of the aptly named "Circus" will follow the launch of the single "Womanizer" on Sept. 22. Britney scored a number of big-name producers and writing talent such as Dr. Luke (writer-producer of the title track "Circus"), Danja, Max, Martin, Bloodshy & Avant and Guy Sigsworth, who have collaborated with other big-name artists such as Madonna, Alanis Morissette and the swan- wearing Bjork.

Recently, Spears, who appears to be on the mend after a rocky couple of years, hit a trifecta at the MTV Video Music Awards, where she took home trophies for best video of the year, best female video and best pop video for "Piece of Me."

And yesterday, Spears toppled her former partying partner Paris Hilton from her "Most Searched Person on the Internet" title given by the Guinness Book of World Records.
