How We're Doing on the Rumors

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

We don't like to post rumors but we know you'd hate us if we sat on our hands as juicy stuff filled our In Boxes and we didn't let you know that something could be excellent. So now that Coachella has come and gone, we can admit to being wrong about Gwen Stefani being there, but be pleased that we told you that Scarlett Johansson would be singing with the Jesus and Mary Chain (even if we were a day off from the correct date).

But the best rumor that we posted looks to be coming true is that Britney Spears will be singing this week at the House of Blues in San Diego (tonight), Anaheim (tomorrow), and the Sunset Strip on Thursday.

We're stoked not just because we only want to tell you about real things that are true, but because we bought a pair of tickets and we cant wait to go.

Get ready for way more Britney coverage in blogs, magazines, and tv, if she really is doing a burlesque show just weeks after getting out of rehab.

After the jump hear Scarlett sing with the Mary Chain at Coachella...
