Popstar Britney Spears lived up to her party-girl reputation on New Year's Eve (31DEC03) by getting so drunk she had to be carried out of a nightclub.

The ME AGAINST THE MUSIC hitmaker was partying with friends at Las Vegas's RAIN nightclub, and the 22-year-old wasted no time in getting stuck into the CRISTAL Champagne, according to Britain's DAILY MIRROR newspaper.

One source says, "Britney was drinking loads at dinner. When the meal was over she and her friends went to the GHOST BAR, which is at the top of the hotel to see in the New Year.

"Basketball star Kobe Bryant and the HILTON sisters were in the bar too. Afterwards she went to Rain, which is also in the hotel, and carried on partying with her friends. She must have drunk at least three bottles of champagne.

"At one point one of her friends appeared to have passed out and was taken out of the club. But Britney stayed. A while later there was a bit of a commotion and I saw Britney's bouncers clearing the way.

"Then I saw her being carried out of the back entrance. It was obvious the people she was with didn't want anyone to see what was going on."
