US pop singer Britney Spears will pick up a top German media prize today.
Spears, 26, will collect the Bambi statuette for Best International Pop Star in Offenburg. She will perform a song from her new album at a gala ceremony hosted by the Hubert Burda Media group, which has given out awards since 1948.
Burda said: "Britney Spears is back. Radiant and better than ever, the erstwhile teeny idol has reclaimed her throne."
Spears hit rock bottom in January this year when she was twice rushed to hospital for psychiatric treatment after losing custody of her two sons to her ex-husband Kevin Federline.
Her new album Circus will be released on December 2, her 27th birthday. It contains the single Womaniser which has already leapt to the top of the music charts. - Sapa-AFP
