“Well, by now everyone knows my boyfriend cheated on me,” she said during her Aug. 31 performance, according to MTV.com. “But the best part of breaking up is going on first dates. OMG, OMG, I need a hot guy. Where are the hot guys here tonight?”
Shortly after, Spears singled out an individual in the audience, who just happened to be celebrity blogger Perez Hilton. The singer’s backup dancers pulled Hilton onto the stage and put him into an outfit of leather and chains. Spears then launched into the song “Freakshow” while while guiding Hilton around the stage on all fours like a dog on a leash.
“@britneyspears just made me her bitch – literally! Hope @Rihanna doesn’t get jealous! It was like the Circus tour opening 2.0,” Hilton tweeted after returning to his front row seat in the Axis Theater, where he was sitting next to Spears’ family.
Spears’ publicist confirmed to Billboard that the singer split with Lucado following an Aug. 28 tweet by her declaring, “Ahhhh the single life!”
The singer and Lucado had dated for more than a year, appearing in public shortly after Spears ended her engagement with Jason Trawick. Spears has two children, Sean and Jayden from her previous marriage with Kevin Federline.
