Britney Spears had quite the busy week. After wrapping up the North American leg of her tour with two concerts in Las Vegas over the weekend, the singer debuted her new single, "3," on radio station Z100 Tuesday morning. But that wasn't enough excitement for her: On Wednesday, Spears purchased a pet parakeet.
During a trip to the California Pet Center near Calabasas, Calif., the singer decided to procure a pet. "Britney had just picked up some dog food when she spotted the parakeets and decided to buy one," an eyewitness tells PEOPLEPets.com. "She settled on a yellow parakeet and bought a big, white cage and several toys for the bird." Though she didn't reveal an intended name for her new feathered friend, the source says she "seemed excited about her new family addition." Most recently, Spears was known to own a Yorkie named London, as well as another perky parakeet.
Parakeets, which mainly eat seeds and fruit, are popular as family pets. Though they stay small in size, they're related to parrots, and in some cases, can mimic the words of their owners.
Perhaps Spears's bird soon will be singing along with Mom's greatest hits?
