Washington, Apr 17 : Troubled pop princess Britney Spears is said to have returned to the recording studio with former manager Larry Rudolph.
However, the visit to the studio in Burbank, CA, which was made during the week, was just a fun thing without the intentions of work involved.
"We went into the studio, but it was just for fun - nothing more," Usmagazine.com quoted Rudolph as saying.
For 26-year-old Spears, she has not been in a recording studio for the past year.
"She just wanted to go in and tinker around," a source said.
"She sat at a piano and got some ideas. She played the piano and sang a bit. She enjoyed herself," the source revealed.
Spears was content to be playing old and new tunes, looking for inspiration to reviving her creative self again.
"She wanted to go in as a way to get her creativity going. It was a really positive experience for her," the source added.
As the source further revealed, Spears and Rudolph, who produces MTV's Rock the Cradle, "are not at the stage where they are talking business yet."
Rudolph, who is credited for discovering Spears and managing her career for 9 years, told Us earlier in the month, that she is on the "right path."
