Britney Spears’ boyfriend, Jason Trawick, was out of town, but that didn’t stop Britney from moving full-steam ahead with her new mission — getting Jason to propose to her before the year is through. The pop star was spotted on December 9 in several Beverly Hills jewelry stores, looking at engagement rings all by herself. “Britney is ready to marry Jason,” says a friend of the 28-year-old, who has been reading bridal magazines and is hoping for a big, traditional wedding in the summer of 2010 — even though Jason has yet to pop the question. “She wants to be with him 24/7.”
Determined to get Jason to settle down with her, Britney has also begun making plans for after they’re married — and is urging Jason to cut back on his career. A high-powered agent at WME, Jason represented Britney long before the two of them hooked up, and his client list has included such stars as Hilary Duff and Paris Hilton. “His career is demanding,” the friend explains. “He can be on the phone or on his computer at any hour, day or night, and Britney finds that she’s competing with his work for attention.” Since Britney makes enough money to support both of them, she doesn’t see why Jason has to work as much as he does. “Britney doesn’t want to marry a workaholic,” her friend explains.
