Britney Spears was out for another afternoon of hitting the stores in LA yesterday. She's making the most of her shopping opportunities in California, and when she returns to her Circus tour she should be traveling with a few suitcases full of new goodies as well as another opening act. Britney also expressed her sadness over the passing of her friend Michael Jackson saying, "I was so excited to see his show in London. We were going to be on tour in Europe at the same time and I was going to fly in to see him. He has been an inspiration throughout my entire life and I'm devastated he's gone!"
