Spears went home to enjoy Mardi Gras – and to cheer up four students whose lives were severely affected by Hurricane Katrina six months ago
Pop superstar Britney Spears is going home to Louisiana to enjoy Mardi Gras, during which she spent part of the celebration with a group of students whose lives were severely affected by Hurricane Katrina six months ago.
Recalling back her time when she was surrounded by St. Catherine of Siena School dancers, the singer said to ABC's "Good Morning America" Tuesday "It was an honor to be here with all of them".
Spears who was a Louisiana native took the girls shopping and then dining at one of Cajun chef Emeril Lagasse's restaurants for some fried chicken and red beans and rice. She also gave the girls fleur-de-lis pins on blue ribbons and surprised the school's dance troupe, the Gatorettes.
