Britney Spears is still not ready for prime time.

The Los Angeles court commissioner overseeing the "Gimme More" singer's conservatorship case deemed Spears' condition "too tenuous" for her to take care of her own business just yet.

The comments by Commissioner Reva Goetz came during a hearing today skipped by both Spears and father Jamie, who is still overseeing his daughter's estate.

Instead, lawyers spent about 90 minutes meeting in the Goetz's chambers.

Afterward, the commissioner said, "It's my understanding that her condition is somewhat tenuous. Her medical condition remains the same."

Spears' court-appointed probate attorney, Samuel Ingham, agreed, telling the court that allowing Spears to contribute actively would be detrimental to her health.

"In fact it could be harmful to her to participate," he said.

Goetz decided she needed more information on Spears' diagnosis before deciding to appoint a more permanent conservator for Spears or whether to dissolve the conservatorship entirely.

"Though there have been changes in her medication...the diagnosis is not complete," said Goetz, adding that Spears' doctor "wants to do additional testing in the not too distant future."

"Without the diagnosis, the timing of the remaining proceedings is something we need to address."

Goetz recommended the court get an update on June 17 in advance of the July 31 hearing, when Goetz is due to make a final deicison about the future of Spears' conservatorship.
