Got your attention with that headline, didn’t we! But no worries, you can calm down. She wasn’t in the psych ward. And she only stayed about ten minutes.

According to, pop princess Britney Spears hit the Miami Children’s Hospital for a visit with sick kids and to give $100,000 to the hospital’s Big Apple Circus Clown Care, a program that brings circus fun (think Patch Adams) to hospitalized children at 19 leading pediatric facilities across the United States.

Pediatric radiologist Ricardo Restrepo and Lee Schrager, director of media for Southern Wine &  Spirits of America, arranged for the singer to visit the hospital.

Spears was with daddy Jamie Spears, who  RadarOnline says tried to prevent them from snapping photos. But the website managed to get one of Britney, who looked "fresh, dewy and poised, if not a little robotic."

They report that the singer "posed for photos with children, barely spoke beyond ‘say cheese’ and was in and out in literally 10 minutes.’

Tonight, Brit does her Circus show at the American Airlines Arena in Miami.

Britney’s mom, Lynne Spears, and baby sister, Jamie Lynn, reportedly flew in a separate jet to Miami to join Britney tonight.

Woo-hoo. Good family times, huh, Britney?
