Borrowing yet another page from the Madonna play book, Britney Spears has reportedly begun her own record label--Enslaved Records.

Owned by Sony BMG Music Entertainment, Britney's label is in negotiations to sign its first act.

Hoping to equal the success of Maverick Record's first cash cow, Alanis Morisette,
Britney's label is in negotiations with a New York based hard rock band called MEAN VENUS.

Britney allegedly encountered MEAN VENUS mid-set some months ago at NJ's legendary Stone Pony
(the historic rock club where the likes of Bruce Springsteen cut his teeth)
and offered the MEAN VENUS boys a deal on the spot.

MEAN VENUS' lead singer (who goes merely by the initial, J)
has also been rumoured to be involved with Mrs. Spears in a more than professional capacity as well.

The MEAN VENUS buzz began with the rumour that lead singer, J, was none other than the illegitimate son of Led zeppelin's very own Robert Plant
and that the unsigned band would be opening for the long awaited reunion tour commencing summer 2008.

UPDATE: Looks like more bad news for Britney: A feeding frenzy of sorts has begun to unravel the tentative record deal that Britney's new label--Enslaved Records--was putting together. The hard rockin' band--MEAN VENUS--out of New York City was soon to be the first act signed to Britney's fledgling label when word of the pending deal leaked out and caught the attention of at least three other major labels. All three labels have reportedly made offers to MEAN VENUS causing Enslaved to consider upping their ante...
