BRITNEY CALLS OFF WEDDING, TO NO ONE'S SURPRISE

If you're still waiting for Britney Spears to finally marry her ex-manager Jason Trawick, you'll have to quit waiting. Rumor has it the couple's winter wedding has been canceled because they keep fighting all the time. Well, that's not going to change once you get married, guys. "Britney and Jason had planned to get married at the end of December, but they have been fighting non-stop so the wedding has now been called off," a source told RadarOnline. "They are telling their friends it's being postponed, but they will probably never make it down the aisle. Britney doesn't think Jason is any fun and resents him because he acts more like a second father than a romantic partner, or equal." The source goes on to say that they've been sleeping in separate bedrooms, and she stays in a hotel during the week while doing The X Factor live (Trawick stays in an adjacent room). "Jason feels like he is Britney's babysitter and it's pretty much just a business arrangement at this point," the source says. "Jason does love Britney and the boys, but he just can't see himself spending the rest of his life with her." There have been plenty of rumblings this one wasn't going to last, anyway. That started somewhere around the time the couple started dating a couple years ago, as we recall.

Taylor's show sells out Swiftly

You've got to get up pretty early in the morning to topple Taylor Swift's fans. Tickets to the singer-songwriter's April 20 show at the Tampa Bay Times Forum went on sale at 10 a.m. Friday. Within three hours, the show was sold out. Already, the cheapest tickets are selling for $113 and up on StubHub. Don't lose hope just yet, though. According to her website, Swift is coming to Orlando on April 11 and/or 12, presumably at the Amway Center. The venue has not yet confirmed those dates - and Taylor's own website is unclear about whether she'll be doing two shows or just one - but either way, tickets have not yet gone on sale. So there's still time! (This also makes us wonder whether Swift might consider adding a second show in Tampa. Hmmm...) In case you're wondering, there are still tickets available to this year's Jingle Ball at the Forum, starring Justin Bieber. Does this mean Taylor fans have surpassed Beliebers as the hardest of the hardcore? - Jay Cridlin, Times staff writer

More 'Horror' on its way

As weird as American Horror Story has been this year, you can't accuse it of being unwatchable television. FX seems to agree, because they've renewed the show for a third season already. Maybe this year is just a sophomore slump. "With American Horror Story: Asylum, (producers) Ryan (Murphy) and Brad (Falchuk) have raised the bar in every way from Murder House, the first American Horror Story miniseries," FX president and general manager John Landgraf told Entertainment Weekly in a statement. "And their original idea - the notion of doing an anthological series of miniseries with a repertory cast - has proven groundbreaking, wildly successful and will prove to be trendsetting. We can't wait to see what deviously brilliant ideas they come up with for their third miniseries." Here's to hoping Jessica Lange can get her accent right next season. And they bring back Connie Britton. And leave out the aliens stuff altogether. That was a bit much.
