Britney Spears Wants to Get Poled

And yet one more single mom has turned to the stripper’s pole.

The Daily Mail reports that Britney Spears has made an unusual request of the Dorchester Hotel for her stay in London in June, when she’ll be performing an eight-night run of concerts at the O2 arena.

She wants a stripper’s pole installed in her suite.

But lest anyone develop a lewd thought about the scenario, it’s to help her stay in shape between shows.

“Britney loves pole dancing, it is her new favorite work out,” says a source. “She gets the toning that she needs without having to hit the gym, and she wants to be able to do it in the privacy of her own hotel room.”

The source adds, “Keeping fit on the tour is very important as her show is full of rigorous dance routines, so Britney likes to do her pole dancing work out every morning when she gets up.”

Of course. And it’s always nice to have a back-up set of skills in case the whole music thing doesn’t work out.
